Teen Fitness Plans for Life

Many teens exercise, whether through sports, jogging, or an every-other-day trip to the gym. Just as many, if not more, do not exercise, unfortunately. Recent statistics estimate that only about 40 percent of teens exercise as much as they need to, while the other estimated 60 percent exercise too little or not at all. One problem that probably contributes to how many teens don’t exercise is a lack of organization and information. Some teens want to exercise but don’t know how to do it in the time they have during their busy schedules. Others simply don’t find exercise enjoyable in comparison with TV, video games, and the Internet. But exercise cannot only be enjoyable, it can be done by anyone who is physically and medically able – teens simply need to know how to exercise and how to structure their fitness plans.

Young People and Exercise: Easier Than You Think!

Do you or your teen know how to exercise? Do you know how to set up an effective teen fitness plan? Many teens and parents don’t. Even so, it is very easy for teens to exercise on a regular basis, even in a tight schedule and without the help of a fitness specialist. Of course, enrolling teens in a school sports team or gym fitness program can be effective, but for some teens it isn’t possible. Starting a simple teen fitness plan can improve a teen’s current health and even help later on in life by preventing injuries and diseases.

Tips for making Teenage Fitness Plans for Life

  • Start with a warm-up. A warm-up will help get you going no matter what exercise you are doing. Always schedule a thorough warm-up in any fitness plan – stretches, walking, and light calisthenics should all be performed. This will loosen the muscles and make exercising less painful and more fun. At the end of exercise, also schedule a cool down. This allows the body to loosen up again, and will prevent injuries and pain later on.
  • Exercise at home. Many teens don’t know where to start when they begin a fitness plan. There’s nothing wrong with starting out slow. All teens who have the space in their house or backyard can try exercising at home. Home exercises include pushups, sit-ups, jumping jacks, step ups, and jogging. Exercising at home makes it easy to plan a fitness plan smoothly – schedule home exercises around daily activities. You can also focus on all parts of the body by performing a range of exercises.
  • Aerobic exercise. Many aerobic exercises can be fun, and they don’t require a team or coach to do. Skating, running, jogging, dancing, basketball, jump rope, and racquetball can all be played independently on your own time. When possible, aerobic exercise can also be linked with the fitness plan of a friend. Working with someone else will help you engage in your fitness plan and will make it more enjoyable.

Lifetime benefits of a good fitness plan for teens

Thinking about the future benefits of a good fitness plan can be difficult for teens. It’s easy for teens to make excuses and say that they will start a fitness plan later, taking advantage of these benefits then. As adults, parents should convince and urge their teens to start a fitness plan so they can secure their health both now and later in life. Teen fitness plans improve academic performance, physical appearance, mental health, self-esteem, motivation, and overall safety, as well as increasing metabolism and preventing disease and injury.””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””

  1. While looking to give up smoking, I stumbled upon the e cig. The e-cig uses a nicotine material which holds simply nicotine. Virtually no cancerous substances in the slightest. They have virtually changed my life. Getting rid of inhaling poisons feels fantastic to me!
