TeenFIT

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 exercise program.
