RICHMOND HEIGHTS, Ohio, May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Fitworks Fitness Centers is currently offering a free summer membership to teens 13-15 years of age as part of their Community Outreach Program designed to help combat ever-growing adolescent obesity rates. Teens are able to take advantage of the free summer membership anytime now through September 5, 2008 by visiting http://www.fitworks.com/freeteen .
Over the past three decades, adolescent obesity rates have more than doubled putting our young ones at risk of developing serious medical conditions and social burdens. With childhood obesity rates at an all-time high, Fitworks is offering this free summer membership program as a means of keeping teens moving. A critical component of weight loss is physical activity. And this is especially true for children. Not only does physical activity burn calories but it also helps to build strong muscles and bones. Executive Vice President & COO John Janszen explains, "At Fitworks we are in the business of changing lives and we feel there is no better way to give back to the communities in which we serve than by touching and influencing the lives of young people. Healthy habits formed early in life, lead to healthy habits later in life. And all of this leads to a reduced risk of serious medical conditions."
Fitworks free teen summer workout program is available absolutely free to teens 13-15 years of age during select weekdays. Parents do not have to be members in order for teens to take advantage of the free membership. A parent or legal guardian must, however, accompany teens to Fitworks on their very first visit to authorize the membership and required code of conduct, and a report card must be presented for age verification purposes.
