90+ MILLION AMERICANS ARE AFFECTED BY OBESITY.
18 MILLION OF THEM ARE CHILDREN.
"PERHAPS I AM STRONGER THAN I THINK."
- THOMAS MERTON
Designed specifically for children struggling with obesity and overweight, TeenLIFT combines pre-eminent physical and mental transformation systems to create an effective, multidisciplinary approach to combat adolescent obesity. TeenLIFT provides participants with the tools to positively change the way they think, act, and feel today, so that they can continue to make meaningful and healthy decisions for the rest of their lives. The most robust and effective multidisciplinary adolescent weight management program available to date, TeenLIFT incorporates resistance weight training, behavioral modification, and nutrition in a non-clinical setting.
Through targeted intervention during adolescence, there is an opportunity to make a large-scale positive impact on global health and on socioeconomic outcomes. We recognize that obese adolescents engage in maladaptive movement patterns that require special attention, TeenLIFT is an intensive, immersive, and integrated intervention.
