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.
