Active TeensProviding Health benefits, Discipline, Focus and a change in Attitude about Nutrition and Fitness Get In Touch
A Healthy Start for Teens from 12 to 18 years
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.
Where: Mahurangi College, Warkworth
When: Exercise sessions Tuesday 4.20-5.20pm, Warkworth Fitness Centre
The programme will run for 10 weeks. These teens can expect to be put through their paces with a boot camp style workout each week.
