How can I encourage my teen to exercise?

How can I encourage my teen to exercise? One of the most important things to do is, make it fun. If your teen is a girl, try sports, Power Yoga, Zumba, dance classes, teen boot camps or aerobic based body sculpting classes. If the teen is a boy, sports, boxing, martial arts, boot camp, or hiking. Try getting a personal trainer for him or her, a personal trainer can assess your child to see what level of fitness they're at.
