    Teens today often have unhealthy lifestyles. To keep them in shape, encourage your kids with some fun aerobic exercises for teens. These workouts will get those muscles working, push their heart rate up and build stamina.

    It's never too early to start getting in some exercise. Plus, keeping weight down and toning muscles aren't the only benefits of working out. When your teens workout, their stamina increases and heart is strengthened. Aerobic exercises keep the heart rate up for lengths at a time. What's more, staying in shape is also a cool teen thing!

    Biking

    Biking is fun, easy to do, and a fat-burner. It forces your kids to use core muscles and gives legs and arms a thorough workout. It's especially perfect for teens who find running too stressful on the knees or who have injuries that prevent them from jogging and sprinting. It's also ideal for people who are overweight. What's more, biking is a whole lot of fun and something that they'll enjoy doing with friends and even alone.

    Swimming

    Does your teen love water? Like biking, swimming is gentle on the legs and the back, but it's tough on fat and great for the heart. As your teen cuts through the water using arms and legs, tummy muscles contract to help push the body forward. This total body workout also builds endurance and if done regularly, can help keep weight at an optimum level.

    Running

    It may be more stressful on the back and legs than biking and swimming, but running is one of the top aerobic exercises for teens out there. It doesn't cost a thing—except a pair of good running shoes—and can yield huge results. It's a well-known fat-burner and when coupled with a healthy diet, you can see quick results. Unless your child suffers from joint pain or doesn't want too much strain on the back and knees, do include running in their fitness regimen.

    Playing Sports

    Whether it's tennis or football, playing a sport is good for the health. It builds competitive spirit and also their social circle. Try to get your son or daughter to dedicate at least half an hour every day to a sport that requires them to run, jump, or dive. Anything that works the muscles and the heart is a good aerobic exercise.

    Don't let obesity and poor health be a part of your teen's life. Include aerobic exercise in their daily to-do list and you'll see marked benefits. The sooner they start working out, the faster you'll see results and the easier it becomes to turn it into a habit.
