Teen Fitness

At DKHAC we offer a fully supervised fitness program for teenagers aged 13-17 years.


If we can set the correct foundation, then we can be set for life. 

At The Doone Kennedy Hobart Aquatic Centre, we aim to make a difference for all our young members. Our focus is to provide a safe and enjoyable fitness program for all teens. This foundation will allow them to become more independent through the knowledge, skills and confidence they will gain throughout our Pro-Teen program.

We have a developed this program specifically for our teen members, to help set that solid foundation from a strength, conditioning and movement perspective.

Our Pro-Teen program is an evolving one, that introduces and progresses teenagers into the gym, providing safe and successful fitness practices.

Pro-Teen program members learn:

  • The safe use of equipment
  • Proper movement and exercise techniques
  • Mobility
  • Other important aspects of personal development, such as goal setting 

The class environment will also promote teen interaction and socialisation through the creation of friendships and promotion of healthy ideas and exercises in a safe environment.

The Pro-Teen program group sessions are run every Monday & Wednesday from 3:45 pm to 4:25 pm (40-minute sessions) in the DKHAC Gym Group Fitness Room.

Please note our program runs throughout the school term only.

Our team members here at DKHAC are highly qualified gym instructors and personal trainers. We run high-quality group training sessions dedicated to the needs of teenage members.

Our trainers have been working together to provide a fully structured plan that focuses on all important physical, mental and social factors when using the gym. 

Teens who are looking for more independence in the gym have the option to attend a fitness consultation, delivered on sign-up to discuss fitness programming using our SMART goal setting tool with the support of parents and gym staff.

A customised gym program is then developed by a trainer which provides a progressive fitness program that starts with basic skills and builds to achieve optimum skill level in later sessions.

A fitness consultation is a compulsory requirement for teen independence in the gym.

Teen Membership includes full centre access between the hours of 11.30 am to 7.30 pm Monday to Friday and from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm Saturday and Sunday.
