Teens, ages 13 – 18, can build strong bones and lean muscle.  Both of these will serve them well later in life as strong bones are less likely to fracture and lean muscle burns calories at a higher rate than other muscles.  This can lead to a healthier self-image and a better life outlook.  Additionally, youth who exercise experience better sleep, enabling them to better cope with daily challenges, both mental and physical.  Establishing healthy habits prior to adulthood increases the chances of carrying them through life. Exercising during teenage years lays a foundation for future health.  Exercise with us at the JCC!

With the exception of small group and/or personal training sessions, use of the fitness center begins at age 15.
