  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   12 Years to 14 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • male and female
  • aged 12-14 years
  • baseline BMI > 25
  • gender- and age-specific 85th percentile cutoff points from the CDC growth chart
  • parental consent and subject assent

Exclusion Criteria:

  • subjects not meeting the inclusion criteria or with physician-determined musculoskeletal, cardiopulmonary, metabolic, psychological, neuro-developmental or behavioral conditions that make mild-to-moderate physical activity potentially hazardous.
  • Participants under the age of 12 are excluded from the study because Weingart YMCA has an age policy. Children under the age of 12 are not allowed to be at the facility alone. Therefore, the minimum age for the study is 12 years old so supervision is not a problem.
