Teenager Workout: What Should It Look Like?


An adolescent is an interesting category of the population because they are biologically growing and are still considered minors legally. Obesity is a health concern that had become an epidemic in America, and it cannot be overlooked. The most unfortunate indicator in examining adolescent obesity is that obese teenagers are 70% prone to becoming obese adults. Childhood obesity rates have also exploded in England and Wales, sending thousands children to hospitals for problems such as asthma, diabetes and sleep apnea. Admissions rocketed to 3,806 youngsters in 2009 from 872 in 2000, a study by Imperial College in London has discovered, with teenage girls accounting for the biggest increase.

In this age of video games, ipods, computer surfing, and any of the abundant media available to teens, it’s no wonder that teen obesity is on the rise.
