Hi my name is Tanya Batts. I'm a personal trainer at Gold's Gym. How to lose belly fat for teens. The things you will need for this are a mat and some space. So for me when I think of a teenager I don't want to picture her on the scale all day long, it's just more about, not about the number but kind of like if she wants to fit in those great pair of jeans that's what she's thinking about so that's kind of what her motivation needs to be. Maybe get a work out buddy, that's a great way to get started. It kind of keeps each person kind of motivated, saying I can do four more, well so can I, just a great idea to have a workout buddy. So I'm going to show you like three exercises that are going to help target the middle. Alright, so we're going to come on down, one vertebra at a time. I'm going to head to the floor, knees to chest to get comfortable. This is why it's fun to have a buddy right beside you because it just, you know, keeps you laughing. So I'm going to do one leg up then the other leg. I'm just going to grab the leg as it comes towards me. So they're teenagers, they're going to be a little more flexible. You can lift the upper body off the mat and it's kind of fun if you've got a workout buddy because you can start to race the girl beside her and that's targeting the middle, fantastic. Alright hugging the knees in, I'm going to take my legs all the way up, make a triangle, lower and lift. This is great for those low rise jeans. So a pair of low rise jeans are real nice but they're not that nice if you have got a belly hanging over the low rise jeans, not a good look and teenagers are thinking about that. Alright, you can keep the legs up and climb a rope. So again, they got a workout buddy right beside them. They're going to challenge each other who is going to make it to the top first and then roll up. So that's just a great way to think about a teenager, making sure they get a workout buddy, maybe thinking about that pair of jeans they want really bad. It's kind of a great motivation. So get a workout buddy and that's how you help a teenager lose belly fat.
