Kids & Teens Start Exercising Now Yeah!
Why? You’ll be stronger, more confident, perform in sports much better
Yes! It’s safe for all ages to learn proper form. Use little or no weight to start.
Fit Mom, Ann, brings her grandson to the eGym. He has become a little Fit Kid, getting the play weights to set up like we do. He rolls the big weights to his GMA.
Motivate your children to love health and fitness at an early age
My youngest daughter, Kiana Jr., watches and works out with me on Kiana’s Flex Appeal using a teddy bear as the weight Awwww.
I am so proud of you for reading this post. I receive many emails asking if it’s okay for kids and teens to lift weights. On my television show, Kiana’s Flex Appeal, I created a Fit Kids to Seniors Segment that showed ages 8-80 working out.
The main thing to remember is that children should use very little (1 – 2lbs.) or NO weight UNTIL they master PROPER FORM. Not almost, not pretty good, but STRICT FORM. The main focus should be mastering correct form BEFORE adding any weight whatsoever.
My 8 year old daughter does squats, arm curls, lunges and has done over 256 chin ups to date (even in her PJs!) She also works out with my television show Kiana’s Flex Appeal which is so cute
My oldest daughter is a brand new TEEN, just turned 13. She plays basketball and rides her horse. I’ve taught her exercises to strengthen the muscles used in basketball and horseback riding, too.
