STUDY ON IMPROVING OVERWEIGHT ADOLESCENTS’ FITNESS THROUGH SPECIFIC PROGRAMS AND PERSONAL TRAINER
In this paper we focus on improving the fitness for the overweight teenagers using specific programs and personal trainer. It is known that more than 60% of the adults don’t practice regular physical activities and 25% of them are completely sedentary. The unbalanced and excesive diet goes directly to overweighting and also to heart diseases, diabetes, some forms of cancer and indirectly to other problems, such as depression.
We wish to check the hypotesis that fitness programs and physical activities using weights, in conjunction with a low calory diet can be used successfully on overweighted teenagers, optionally with a personal trainer. The study was conducted during the October, 2009 until April, 2010. The results confirm the efficiency of training programs proposed and, in special cases, the need for a personal trainer.
