Preventing Childhood Obesity
At Energetic Juniors, we believe that healthy living makes healthy, vibrant kids. We have had great success in helping kids lose weight, improve their health and improve their overall outlook on life. Our mission is to fight childhood obesity and help overweight kids adopt healthy habits and a physical lifestyle that they will carry into adulthood. EJ children have experienced great success with weight control through a combination of the right exercise and proper nutrition. Our energizing workouts help kids trim down and get their confidence back up. Through encouragement and caring guidance, we shape kids’ bodies and minds for continued success with fitness and physical activity.

- Increased risk of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes
- Breathing problems, such as sleep apnea, and asthma
- Joint problems and musculoskeletal discomfort
