According to the World Health Organization, “Childhood obesity is
one of the most serious public health challenges of the 21st century.”
The percent of adolescents aged 12-19 who were obese increased from 5%
in 1980 to nearly 21% in 2012. Overall, nearly one third of children and
adolescents are overweight or obese.
The most common causes are genetic factors, lack of physical activity,
unhealthy eating patterns, or a combination of these factors. Overweight
and obese children are likely to stay obese into adulthood and more likely
to develop noncommunicable diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular diseases
at a younger age. Overweight and obesity, as well as their related diseases,
are largely preventable.
To expand the many health benefits exercise has to offer and to help teens
get started on the right track, CaroMont’s Health & Fitness
Center would like to offer a Teen Fitness Certification Program. Teens
13 years of age or older would be allowed to use the Fitness Center on
their own once they have gone through a certification process. This process
is warranted to ensure safety and to encourage optimum benefits from the
