During the past six years we have helped hundreds of teens change their habits and transform their lives. It is always exciting to hear back from our kids and teens 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!”

Not only has my daughter lost weight, inches and body fat in one month, but most importantly her self esteem and confidence have improved. Jorge, Kalina, and the trainers are amazing, professional and so kind. Thank you for caring about our children. I definitely recommend the program!”

My daughter enjoys this program immensely and has been working very hard at making better choices with her nutrition. She likes the trainers and I love hearing about her workouts and group meetings. We’re so glad to have found this program.”

I would recommend the program to anyone looking for a complete package for their child.”

Sharon McFarland review – “I’m so impressed with The Lean Teen program. The availability of nutritional counseling, exercise, group sessions, and monitoring of weight & body measurements is great. There is accountability and follow up with each client. In addition to being Christians, Jorge & Kalina are very professional. My daughter’s motivated because she’s surrounded by peers who are able to identify with her struggle. Thanks Jorge & Kalina!!”

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.

Brigida Mack from WBTV News came to interview our Lean Teens and it was truly amazing to see our kids answer her questions about fitness and nutrition. Below you can watch the complete 40 minute news video and their testimonials. If you have limited time, please watch this quick 3 minute trailer.
