  1. Exercise Classes for Kids and Teens

    If you think it takes hours of grueling gym time to see real change, then think again. In just thirty minutes you can get a great workout! Our Lean Teen exercise classes consist of a 30 minute total body workout that includes a 2 minute warm-up, 25 minutes of circuit training, and a 3 minute cool down. All our exercise classes use hydraulic equipment designed to be safe for teens and to provide the right amount of resistance. It helps our kids to build lean muscle and to burn calories faster!

    Our focus with circuit training is to help stimulate the muscles while also keeping the heart rate elevated. Our rest periods never exceed 60 seconds. Having short rest periods helps to keep the heart rate elevated and the body at fat burning levels. We also require our teens to use a heart rate monitor to ensure they are exercising at the right intensity level without going overboard and risking injury (normally 65-85 percent of their maximum heart rate).

    I can’t stress enough how important it is for teens to get into the exercise habit as early as possible and do it in a way they enjoy and will want to continue throughout life. Studies show that circuit training is the best way for teens to get the most from their workouts. By combining short bursts of (high intensity) cardio with (low intensity) rest periods, our Lean Teens are able to burn more calories than exercising at the same pace in just half the time.

    All our Lean Teen classes are one hour long and also include 30 minutes of group support. While our exercise classes workout the body, our group meetings workout the mind. It is all about helping our teens develop the right mindset and change the way they think about food and exercise. We design our group meetings to help our teens stay motivated and on track to reaching their goals while they make new friends from teens just like them.

    As the Program Director, my wife Kalina has over 20 years of experience as a psychotherapist and counselor working with teens. With her guidance, our teens discuss topics such as positive thinking, body image, self-esteem, anti-bullying strategies, dealing with stress, goal setting, problem solving, nutrition, and much more. Our goal is to empower our teens with the tools they need to be successful and help them build strength, confidence, and self-esteem.

  2. Charlotte Kids Fitness Classes

    In our years working with kids and their families, we have observed that the number one desire of all parents is that they want the best for their children but they do not know where to start. So if you are a parent interested in helping your child to build healthy habits and reach their full potential then our program was designed especially for you.

    While most programs only focus on exercise, nutrition, or support, our program includes all three. Our group classes are designed for kids and teens between the ages of 8 to 18 to completely transform their habits and change the way they think about food and exercise in a fun and positive environment.

    From the beginning, your health coach will guide you and your family through every phase of our program. As your partner in lifestyle change, we are strongly committed to give your child the expert advice they need to achieve their fitness goals. It is truly a program that can work for all kids and teens!

    1. Nutritional Counseling and Personalized Meetings


    It all starts with a one-on-one nutritional consultation to better understand your child’s eating habits. Your health coach will prepare a personalized nutrition plan that gives your family the flexibility that is needed to make permanent lifestyle changes.

    We will also train your family on how to use MyPlate. This is an effective and simple way for your child to learn how to control their portions with an easy to understand illustration that will teach them how to build a healthy plate.

    Finally, your health coach will keep track of your child’s monthly progress and offer expert advice to help your family make better food choices. After all, the key to lowering and maintaining weight is to follow a balanced nutrition plan.

    2. Complete Support to Empower Kids (ages 8-18)


    All our group support classes are designed to help kids stay motivated and on track to reaching their fitness goals. And they will make new friends and get the encouragement they need from kids and teens that are just like them.

    With the assistance of an expert counselor, our group support classes discuss positive thinking, body image, self-esteem, anti-bullying strategies, dealing with stress, goal setting, problem solving, recipes, food labels, nutrition, and so much more.

    Our group support classes also have separate boys and girls classes to allow open communication. It is all about empowering our kids and teens with the tools they need to be successful and help them build their strength, confidence, and self-esteem.

    3. Unlimited Exercise Classes with a Certified Coach


    All our exercise classes are designed to help kids get in shape no matter what their current level of activity is. Our circuit training classes focus on helping to stimulate the muscles while also keeping the heart rate elevated.

    By combining short bursts of cardio with recovery periods, your child will burn more calories than exercising at the same pace in just half the time. Studies show that this is the best way for kids to get the most from a workout.

    All our classes are an hour long and include 30 minutes of exercise as well as 30 minutes of group support to help our kids (ages 8-18) stay physically and mentally in shape. We are committed to help your child achieve their goals and get fit!
