PUBERTY, hormonal changes and growth spurts often make exercise challenging for teen girls, as energy levels seem to change on an almost daily basis.

But regular exercise with strength training can actually increase a teen’s energy level as well as her overall self-esteem. According to “USA Today,” a Harvard Medical School study found that girls who gained weight during the pre-teen years did so mostly due to growth, but teen girls who had reached their full maturity and continued to gain weight were more likely to be unhealthy. Proper weight- training with weights as well as regular aerobic activity and flexibility training can help teen girls maintain a healthy body weight and establish habits that will keep them healthy and moving throughout their lives.

Find a programme that is safe, proven and works to set the tone for a life-time of health.- Cindy Stevenson -Curves Owner. Supplied
