How can teens stay healthy and fit while still meeting all the obligations they have connected to school, work, activities with friends and time with family? Active teenage girls need a common sense plan that will enable them to eat healthy and exercise enough to maximize their potential in every phase of their lives.

Working out doesn't have to be torture or boring and eating nourishing foods doesn't mean consuming blah meals. In this handy book you'll find workouts specifically designed for the morning, the school day and the weekend. Along with the list of suggestions are helpful illustrations that will show how to get the most out of every exercise.

Dietary advice is also part of the total package and you'll discover how to eat right without depriving yourself of the foods you enjoy. You'll also find sidebars filled with tips for healthier living and quotes from other teens about how they manage their routines.

The first few chapters of the book introduce all the fitness and health fundamentals the reader will need to know. There are motivational tips as well as ideas on how to fuel the body for everyday activities. Next there are the specific workouts that will make getting and staying fit a joy rather than an onerous trial.

Throughout the book the authors also investigate and expose some of the common fitness myths teens may have heard from friends. There's also material on pitfalls to avoid and a list of resources that will allow the reader to achieve her fitness goal.

'Whether you're hoping to start working out, or looking to take your fitness level up a notch, we'll help you get there,' promise the authors. 'All we ask is that, in doing so, you pay attention to your body, and treat yourself with respect and love.'
