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!

Kettlebell exercises build strength and endurance, particularly in the lower back, legs, and shoulders, and increase grip strength. Kettlebell exercises are in their nature holistic; therefore they work several muscles simultaneously and may be repeated continuously for several minutes or with short breaks. They can offer improved mobility, range of motion, agility, cardiovascular endurance, mental toughness and increased strength.

Clients who have been referred to a fitness professional after completion of a rehabilitation program can work with a MES to tailor a fitness program to their particular medical condition. Our MES’s are trained to develop safe and effective conditioning programs for clients with musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, neurological or metabolic disorders.
