  10. 10. Fitness for Kids and Teens <br />“As kids’ fitness instructors, our challenge is to help children de­velop active, positive lifestyles. In­tegrating knowledge and activity will help convince children that exercise is important to their well-being and increase the chance that physical activity will be­come a permanent part of their daily lives. Once children begin to regularly incorporate fitness into their experience, they are more likely to modify other health factors to complement their healthy lifestyles”.<br />
