Gym Rises in Popularity Among Teens at FHN for a Variety of Reasons

In this generation, going to the gym has become a much more popular hobby than others. Some teens at FHN have been  committed members of fitness clubs for years to improve both their mental and physical health.

“I think it is important for teens to go to the gym to stay fit and in good shape, and also improve their mental health, because some get very self conscious about the way they look and going to the gym makes such a huge difference and you just feel so much better about yourself,” junior Ian Brinkman said.

One of the most popular gyms among FHN students is Edge Fitness Club. Most go there because of the environment and the equipment they provide and it is also in a convenient location to most FHN students.

“I first started going with friends and I just really liked the environment and it just seemed like a better fit for me rather than Club Fitness,” senior Janiya Lorthridge said.

The main reason some people consider going to the gym is solely just to improve the way they look. But for others, it is so much more than that. The gym helps build an environment that brings people together, and also helps people improve their mental health and how they feel about themselves.

“If you look good, you feel good, and the gym helps build muscle and makes people more confident about themselves,” Brinkman says.

It is important for teens to keep up with their health and fitness to both look and feel better about themselves. Going to the gym helps build confidence and also gives students something to do in their spare time.

“I just think it helps me feel better about myself. If people started going to the gym we’ll all feel more confident and be more healthy,” Lorthridge said.
