Q?

How do I know what sports is best for my teen?

A.

When it comes to choosing a sports, we strongly encourage they pick something which they find of interest. Like with anything in life, once their passion is ignited, success always follows. Great questions worth discussing with your teens are as follows:

  • Do they like to work out alone?
  • Do they enjoy team oriented sports?
  • Are they more suited to short bursts of activity or do they prefer long distance?
  • Do they excel in eye to hand coordination activities?
  • Do they like to kick? If so, do they prefer using just their feet or their hands as well?

If they are unsure about any of these questions, their resident trainer can more than assist in working out what sport is right for them. Together with your guidance, I’m positive they will choose the right path

Q?

How much exercise should my teen be getting?

A.

Industry consensus suggests that teenagers and young adults should work out for a minimum of 45 minutes each day. The rate at which this exercise is conducted should be varied from a moderate to a vigorous pace, all dependant on one’s fitness levels. As always, it’s important your teen stretches before and after sessions. This will reduce the likelihood of them getting injured.

Q?

Is there such thing as exercising too much?

A.

The short answer is yes. As they are still growing, it’s important that your teen feeds their body with enough calories to meet their growing needs. Low GI foods that release energy slowly are strongly recommend. If they exercise too much and do not take the time to replenish any expended energy, they will be putting their bodies at a risk of underdevelopment. We recommend that they train no more than five days a week. Additionally, we strongly suggest that they rest their body if injured. Failure to do so will only delay the healing process.
