Teens and training!
Always a contentious issue for parents everywhere. Should I let my kids get into fitness? Doesn’t training mean lifting weights? Isn’t lifting weights bad for young bodies??
Thankfully, there is plenty of research to suggest otherwise.
This study conducted in 2015 confirms what we’ve known for some time. That resistance training in teens is a good thing, rather than something to be feared.
Here are just a few of the reasons we feel our HV Teens program is the perfect fit for today’s teenagers:
At CFHV, we promote being in shape and being ready for the unknowable. HV Teens follows a very specific structure, using a qualified coach, to ensure that each member of our Teens family develops at their pace. Our workouts vary, from of gymnastics work to Olympic lifting and everything in between. We focus on what we know works and what keeps your entire body in shape.
To develop friendships and relationships skills important to the future. When joining CFHV, you don’t think about this aspect, that the people here will become part of your life. Our people know and share in our vision that our community is as important as the workout we’ve all just completed. This helps to develop a more rounded individual.
For long term health benefits. Starting with CFHV as a teen, you are training your brain to enjoy fitness and the associated health benefits. These values will stay with you as you age. Our members understand the need for balanced nutritional intake and a healthy relationship with food. By learning the importance of this, you are also promoting good, long term health for yourself.
It’s the sport for teens who don’t like sport. Not all kids find their calling playing rugby, netball or other traditional individual/team sports. There are competitions, in our gym, nationwide and even internationally, culminating in the CrossFit Games, where teens from around the world get to compete against each other for the title, Fittest Teen in the World!
Developing a “can do” mindset. Life is full of “I can’t moments”. Being coached, surrounding yourself with people focused on the “I can” moments, means you starts breaking down invisible barriers and overcoming obstacles. Even in your everyday life, you see yourself having more of a “I can” attitude.
OUR PRIMARY AIM – IT’S FUN We take great pride in providing a fun environment for our members to get their sweat on. We’ll test you, challenge you and encourage you to express yourself all the while making you laugh and enjoy the fact you’re working out. Our movements and workouts are constantly varied, something that you may not be able to experience at a regular gym.
Our HV Teens runs three times weekly. We proudly use The Brand X Method for our ongoing training and curriculum. To find out more, or to get involved hit this link
