All habits, both good ones and bad ones, settle during the infancy and adolescence.
Habits of physical activity and healthy lifestyles acquired during childhood are more likely to keep up over life time.
So the improvement of physical activity of children is essential for their future health.
Physical activity also has been associated with beneficial mental effects in youth,
thanks to a better control of anxiousness and strengthening of self-confidence.
Physical activity can also contribute to social development of the children, giving an opportunity to express oneself and encouraging
social interaction and integration. Also can be stated that active adolescents adopt easier other healthy habits like avoiding smoking, alcohol and drug usage
and they achieve better school performance.
The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Spanish Ministry of Health and Education develop recommendations subject to the age of the children
about which activities to do with them to maintain a healthy life as an adult.

Adolescents, who have a dog, can enjoy their leisure time together with their pet in one of our Dog agility courses.
During adolescence, the youth look after the changes of their appearance. It’s important that they develop a healthy consciousness towards their body,
since the self-perception may be altered by the communication media.
Regarding this aspect, SPORT IS VERY POSITIVE: it strengthens the self-confidence and makes that the youth get to know better their body and
improve their physical capacities.
With Trainingbox, Mobipark creates spaces where young people can do multiple sport activities,- free of charge and outdoors.
