“We watch them get to the point where they’re taking ownership for their own improvement,” Thoele said.

“When they’re saying, ‘I can do better than that; let me try.’”

FitTeens is not just about the physical exercise, though. The first of five main goals is actually personal development for the teens and instilling the values of goal setting. Then comes increasing physical abilities, then achieving mastery of core exercises so they could teach someone else, then having fun, and lastly, just making sure they show up every day.
