6 month ago I started training a 16-year-old client and few clients of mine had this reaction: 16 year old and he needs a personal trainer? some people are comfortable financially more then others. should you get your kid a personal trainer?” My answer? Why not? Kids and teens can have fitness and health goals just like the rest of us and, with so many of them fighting weight battles and just like the rest of us personal training has become just one more option for helping kids get fit and and to provide a fitter and healthiest future, I am sure you are thinking now if this was you! would you be here? the answer is probably yes with the difference that you would be here now as a result of having a weak body and with weak body comes illness unlike starting to look after your health or your kids health at young age.The benefits of exercise are yours for the taking, regardless of your age, sex or physical ability.
