About 70,000 Canadian teens have currently registered for GoodLife Fitness’ free teen fitness program, which encourages teens to get active at GoodLife clubs across the country.
In its sixth year, the teen fitness program is seeing higher than average registration rates, up from an average 65,000, as more teens are using the opportunity to take control of their health.
GoodLife Fitness has an outlet in Vernon.
“The remarkable aspect of the teen fitness program that we see each year is how teens are becoming role models for their family and friends,” said David Patchell-Evans, founder and chief executive officer of GoodLife Fitness.
“Often times, we hear that it’s the parents’ responsibility to instill these values in their kids. However, even though a parent may be helping their teen sign up, the teens are the ones who show the initiative and desire to continue coming back all summer, and often times it’s with their family members in tow.”
The GoodLife Fitness teen fitness program takes place each summer from the beginning of July to the end of August.
