Youth Fit Pro certified personal trainer can help determine what your teen is capable of and teach them how to exercise safely, effectively, and most importantly, how to have some fun so these habits stick into adulthood. As a result of overall body conditioning and increasing their physical fitness levels on a regular consistent basis, most of the Teens in this program have attested to benefiting from any or all of the following:
- More strength
- Protection from injuries
- Better health
- Higher self-esteem and confidence
- Increased overall body-tone
- Increased concentration
- Decrease in mood swings
- Decreased Stress
- Decreased weight
- Better and more “restful” sleep patterns
Reasons you may want your teen to work with a personal trainer are:
• Sports specific training.
Athletes often need specialized training and kids who want to pursue sports may want or need help from a professional to strengthen their bodies, increase their power and endurance and protect them from injuries.
• Guidance for exercise.
You may feel at a loss if your child wants to exercise or lift weights and you’re not sure you have the expertise to show them what to do. If that’s the case, the right personal trainer can help you set up a good program that fits your child’s age, goals and fitness level.
• Dislike of organized sports or group fitness.
Some kids may not like typical PE or sports, but still want to get in shape. Working one-on-one with a trainer can be a safe environment for them to get fit and strong without feeling self-conscious.
So many teens who play sports want to jump higher, run faster or just overall be healthy.
The Youth Fit Pro curriculum addresses motor development, pediatric exercise physiology, growth-related differences in abilities, youth resistance and cardio-respiratory training, and integration of health- and skill-related activities into fitness programs.
