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 provides a greater focus on personal accountability to motivate teens in ways that are specific to them.

Active Teens includes boxing, weight training and cardio sessions supervised by our Healthy Lifestyle Advisor.

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

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

The Active Teens programme involves parents as it is essential that the whole family is involved in food choices, transportation and vital encouragement.
