Following are some quotes on improving teenagers' fitness from Yang Hua, a political advisor and president of Beijing Sports University, at the annual session of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference National Committee on Sunday:

-- The number of physical education classes should be increased at schools to ensure that students do exercises for an hour each day.

-- The government should roll out plans or regulations to improve the fitness and health of adolescents.

-- More funding should be spent on sports fields and facilities at schools, while public stadiums, gyms and facilities should offer free and prior access to students.

-- Chinese teenagers are suffering from rising obesity rate, poor cardiorespiratory fitness and athletic ability, and bad vision.
