  1. Teen Testimonials and News Video

    At Kalina’s Fitness, we believe that America is at a crossroads. Our teens are sacrificing their future for the immediate gratification of TV, video games, and fast food. By teaching kids the value of exercise and proper nutrition, we empower them with the tools they need to pursue their dreams.

    We combine nutritional counseling, group support, and exercise classes to make losing weight easy. Our program provides a complete solution to weight loss that gives teens ages 8 to 18 the tools to reach their goals and build healthy habits that last a lifetime. It is truly a program that works for all kids!

    Our program was designed for teens and was developed by us over a decade ago. In 2003, we built the first teen fitness and weight loss program in our nation, Lean Teen Program, and rebuilt it again in 2014. Over the past 16 years our program has helped over 1,000 kids and teens transform their lives.

  2. Our Mission is to Transform Lives

    During the past 6 years we have helped hundreds of kids and teens change their habits and transform their lives. It is always exciting to hear back from our kids long after they have left our program and hear about their progress. Our Lean Teen Carrigan (pictured above) wrote us the following email:

    “I just wanted to send y’all an update on my life since I moved to Florida. I’m working as a lifeguard right now for the First Coast YMCA and I’m quite busy with all of my hours, but more importantly I’m finally comfortable being in a swimsuit again! I started with y’all at around 163 pounds and I can proudly say I am down to 137 pounds. I can finally wear cute dresses and things I wore my freshman year of high school again, but more importantly is that I’m confident in my own skin again! I just wanted to thank you all for being a big part of my weight loss journey and lifestyle change!”

    Teach Your Kids Healthy Habits Early

    Habits are actions and behaviors that we perform subconsciously and they are very difficult to break. Studies show that the habits that we develop early and are formed in childhood related to eating and exercise carry over into adulthood. And once poor health habits emerge they tend to be long lasting.

    For example, research has indicated that 97% of people who lose weight regain it again within 5 years. Yes, our health habits are really that hard to change! That is why if you want to help your child develop good habits that are associated with a longer and healthier life you have to start at a very early age.

    At Kalina’s Fitness, our mission is to give kids and teens (ages 8-18) the tools to transform their lives and build healthy habits that last a lifetime. By combining nutritional counseling, group support, and exercise classes, we provide a complete solution that empowers them to achieve their fitness goals. We are driven by a strong belief that every child deserves the opportunity to realize their full potential.

    1. Nutritional Counseling

    It all starts with a one-on-one nutritional consultation to better understand your child’s eating habits. Your health coach will prepare a nutrition plan that gives your family the flexibility needed to make permanent lifestyle changes. We will also train you and your family on how to use MyPlate.

    MyPlate is an effective and simple way for children 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 coach will keep track of your child and offer expert advice to help your family make better food choices.

    2. Complete Group Support

    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 to be successful. It is all about empowering kids with the tools to build their strength, confidence, and self-esteem.

    With the assistance of an expert counselor, our group support classes discuss positive thinking, body image, self-esteem, dealing with stress, goal setting, problem solving, nutrition, and much more. We also have separate boys and girls classes to allow open communication and avoid distractions.

    3. Unlimited Exercise Classes

    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. Studies show that this is the best way to get the most from a workout.

    Our Lean Teen classes are an hour long and include 30 minutes of exercise as well as 30 minutes of group support to help kids stay physically and mentally in shape. By combining recovery periods with short bursts of cardio, they burn more calories than exercising at the same pace in just half the time.

  5. Bella and Her Mom Get Fit Together

    We are always grateful when we have a new guest visit us. God gave us the privilege to work with so many wonderful families and we take our work seriously. We are not only on a mission to help kids build healthy habits but also to make them strong, confident, and successful adults.

    Recently, we received an email from one of our parents Brooke. When she first brought her daughter Bella to our program over a year ago she could barely do a push up or sit up. Today, Bella is a strong and confident young lady. In her email, Brooke shares how our program has transformed her life.

    “First, I must say I absolutely LOVE Lean Teen and everything it stands for. My favorite part is your Christian influence, smile, and your love for the kids! It makes me emotional to think our journey will come to an end at Lean Teen. Your impact will never be forgotten though. I can’t thank you enough for helping Bella becoming a strong, confident, young women. Before Lean Teen she was quiet, shy and insecure. Now she stands tall and feels good about herself. Before Lean Teen she couldn’t do a single sit up or push up. Now she does more than the boys in her gym class.”

    Bella came to our program over a year ago and is now at a healthy BMI after losing 10 pounds and growing a few inches. She is also ready to workout on her own and is an expert in nutrition and reading food labels. Great job Brooke in being an amazing role model to your daughter. We are so proud of you Bella for your hard work and commitment to get fit. We will miss you both!

    It was always a treat to see Brooke and Bella attend our parent and teen exercise classes on Saturdays. The sad part of running a program like ours is that sometimes we have to say “goodbye.” Below is a great picture of Brooke and Bella that we will cherish forever. We hope to also meet your family.

    At Kalina’s Fitness we specialize on giving teens (ages 8-18) the tools they need to build healthy habits that last a lifetime. Let us help your child become an amazing version of themselves and schedule your free class today. We look forward to serving your family. Thank you for visiting us!
