Focus on Habits not on Weight Loss

By offering the first fitness and weight loss program for kids and teens ages 8-18, we are helping our members literally transform their lives. Our proven program has a 90% success rate and includes nutritional guidance, group support, and exercise classes to train our teens how to change their habits and achieve their goals. It is the first complete program of its kind that is designed to empower teens with the tools to reach their full potential.

Our members include teens like Marquis (age 14) who lost 50 pounds in less than six months and has been able to successfully keep the weight off in over a year. Sisters like Logan (age 9) and Jordan (age 11) who together lost 17 pounds in two months while Jordan still grew an inch in height. Teens like Dariq (age 17) who loses about 5 pounds per month and has lost a total of 21 pounds in only four months. And many more…

Even though we specialize in helping kids lose weight the focus is always on their habits. In fact, all our coaches are trained to minimize praise around weight loss and emphasize healthy behavior such as drinking water, working out at the right intensity level, eating more fruits and vegetables, and portion control. By focusing on being fit rather than losing weight, we train our members to build healthy habits that will last a lifetime.

Keep in mind that when it comes to helping teens to lose weight the focus should always be on behavior modification and not on calorie restriction. The fact is that weight loss is generally 80 percent nutrition and 20 percent exercise. So you can’t out-exercise bad eating habits! However, simply restricting calories is not the answer. We train all our teens to follow a balanced nutrition plan and measure them monthly to keep them accountable.

By teaching your child how to eat nutritious and balanced meals, and how to workout at the right intensity level you will set him or her on the path to sustainable long-term healthy habits. If you or your child needs our help, please give us a call at (704) 614-6700 or register for a free class at http://leanteenprogram.com/register/. We have the expertise to help your teen and look forward to serving you with excellence. Thank you!
