A Healthy Start for Teens from 12 to 18 years

What is Active Teens?

Teens are unique in that they respond to a distinctly different type of motivation.

To achieve the best health and fitness outcomes Active Teens will have a greater focus on personal accountability and motivate teens in ways that are specific to them.

Modelled after other boxing programmes for teens, Active Families is creating a programme that will involve boxing as well as weight training and cardio sessions supervised by our trainers.

It will provide not only health benefits but discipline, focus and a change in attitude about nutrition and fitness.

A booklet will help the participants track nutrition and exercise achievements as well as providing a space for personal reflection in a diary section.

The Active Teens programme will also involve the families as it is essential that the whole family is involved in food choices, transportation and vital encouragement.
