Teen Fitness at Source!
According to Get Ireland Active all children and young people should be active, at a moderate to vigorous level, for at least 60 minutes every day. Including muscle-strengthening, flexibility and bone-strengthening exercises 3 times a week.
We know that maintaining a healthy lifestyle can be tricky for teenagers. It takes time and effort, but one thing is for sure, you won’t regret dedicating just an hour a day to exercise!
And here’s why…
Working out at a gym is fun and energizing, and fitness classes are a great way to meet new people and stay motivated.
Sessions of moderately intense activities, such as brisk walking or light jogging for 60 minutes are a great way to raise your heart rate and get the blood flowing. But, of course, greater amounts of physical activity within a 60 minute period can be even more beneficial. (But remember it’s important to have a good balance because you don’t want to overdo it!)
