Children and Teens

How to Fit In Fitness
To get your kids moving, find physical activities they can enjoy at their own pace -- and become active with them.
Weight Training for Teens
Once children hit puberty, and hormones make it possible to build muscle, weight training can become a part of a healthy exercise program for youths. Research suggests strength training has a lot to offer some teenagers in terms of health, fitness and fun.
Take a Hike to Family Fitness
Even if you live in the city, you can still get out for a walk together to a city park or to the store.
Make Exercise a Family Affair
Like adults, children should be physically active most, if not all, days of the week.
In Gymnastics, Kids Flip for Fitness
The sport helps build strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular endurance. Its all-around fitness benefits make it a good springboard to other activities.
Exercise and Adolescents
Teens need at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity on most days for good health and fitness and for healthy weight during growth.
