Issue Date: 
Teaching and Learning, 21(2), 63-71
Physical Education (PE) teachers and sports trainers play significant roles in shaping young people's attitudes towards physical activity and exercise. As professionals they must recognise that young people are
not merely miniature replicas of adults. PE teachers and trainers ought to handle young people under their charge with expertise to help them achieve their full physical potential. They are expected to be
knowledgeable about not just the physiological and health characteristics of youth, but also the social and psychological issues involved in teaching and training them. This article will focus on some
of the pertinent physiological and health issues that PE teachers or trainers ought to know and practise when working with young people. This is important because PE teachers and trainers must practise
relevant theories so that young people can benefit from effective physical activity, exercise or training. With proper guidance, they can learn to be positive about the way they perceive exercise and physical
activity, and live active and healthy lives.
