Why Should Your Teenager Sign Up For Fitness Gyms

Sick of seeing your teenager glued to their phone or cooped up in their bedroom? Sign them up to the gym to open up a world of fitness. Just as valuable as good nutrition, exercise is important in developing healthy habits for adulthood. By signing your teenager up to a local gym, you allow them to develop good fitness and wellbeing habits early on.

Why Exercise is Important for Teenagers


Exercise is one of the most important aspects of building and maintaining good health. From developing a strong and healthy physique to improving mental health, exercise has an extensive range of benefits for teenagers as they go through adolescence.

Cardiovascular Health

From brisk walks on the treadmill to high energy movement in a group fitness class, any type of aerobic exercise is good for the heart and lungs. By getting your teen into the gym, you can aid their cardiovascular health and help to develop a healthier heart and lungs as well as improving overall oxygen delivery.

Injury Prevention

There’s no shortage of injuries when it comes to kids playing sports. From team sports like football and soccer through to tennis and golf, poor form, weak muscles and inadequate body awareness can lead to injuries. By getting involved with strength training, your teen can build on the protection of their joints to minimise injuries both in the gym and in everyday life.

Weight Control

Alongside a healthy and balanced diet, regular exercise helps to keep weight under control. Your teen can take their pick out of fitness classes and solo workouts tailored to their preferences.

Mental Health

Just as important as the physical and emotional, mental health is significantly impacted by exercise. Responsible for releasing endorphins, exercise helps to regulate moods, build self-esteem, enhance confidence and encourage better sleep.

Disease Prevention

Regular exercise in all stages of life is important in minimising risks for diseases and conditions. From diabetes through to heart disease, a consistent exercise schedule is proven to significantly reduce the likelihood of developing a plethora of diseases later in life.

Healthy Habits

Good habits in adulthood are best formed as a teenager. Instead of getting used to being inactive, getting your teen into the gym allows them to solidify healthy exercise and wellbeing habits.

Getting into a new habit is much harder as an adult – especially when it comes to exercise. By signing your teen up for a gym membership, you allow them to work on their fitness, build new skills and develop a healthy relationship with exercise.

Important Information Regarding Your Surge Fitness Membership.

Yesterday’s announcement from our Prime Minister ordering the immediate closure of Fitness Facilities across the nation is significant a blow to all of us across many Industries. We understand that this decision has been based on the best advice currently available to those responsible for our safety and with the Impending state border closures, and increasing community concerns, meant that this decision was unavoidable.

As such, it is with great sadness that we today announce that all Surge Fitness clubs will temporarily close, effective from 12pm today, Monday 23rd March 2020.

At Surge Fitness, we believe that we can make a difference, change lives and build healthy communities. As a brand, we still have a lot of work to do and we all believe that we can continue to positively impact our members and the local communities at large during this time of uncertainty.

Like many of you, our business is facing unprecedented impacts both on our people and our business and we will continue to work through the issues together as effectively as possible.

During this time of closure, all memberships will be placed on complimentary freeze until we are in a position to resume our regular services. Surge Fitness has been working on contingency plans throughout the past few weeks to provide ongoing services to our members such as online & virtual training platforms including numerous resources to help support our members physical and mental health well-being.

Further announcements will be made in the coming days with communications to be published both on our social media platforms and via email once the government has clarified their position regarding the forced closure directive.

On behalf of all of the team at Surge Fitness we would like to thank you all for your ongoing support over the years. As a team we have shared some memorable experiences with you all. Today's forced closure is just a minor setback in our Health & Fitness journey together.
