Did you know that 33% of our children are considered overweight or obese? That once they become adults that percentage will double to 67%?

According to our military leaders, most Americans are too overweight to serve in our military making obesity our greatest threat to national security. Obesity is also our country’s number ONE cause of death as more adults develop heart disease and stroke early in life. The GOOD news is that all this is preventable! Continue reading

Meet our Trainers :)

As we grow the Lean Teen Program, our promise to you is to build the best program possible for your teen. We are committed 100% to making sure quality always comes first with no exceptions. Now that we are growing rapidly we have two new Lean Teen coaches to help us meet demand. Justin and Cate are both passionate about helping teens and have the experience necessary to lead our exercise classes. They will work in combination with my wife as she devotes more time to developing a strong curriculum for our class discussions.

The Workout

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 teens to build lean muscle and to burn calories more quickly!

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).  Continue reading
