In brief: Different in kids
In pediatrics hypogonadism is not a matter of lifestyle intervention.
Children presenting with hypogonadism can be born with it or it can be acquired as a result of gonadal injury from trauma or forms of chemotherapy/radiation. However, we see kids with delayed puberty who are not necessarily hypogonadal, but "late bloomers." a doctor would need to determine this.

In kids, it is less of lifestyle, although it would be interesting to study effect of lifestyle on teenagers' sex hormone levels, just like the known effect on their weight, metabolic syndrome, etc. The question was hopefully posted by an adult, so lifestyle - lack of exercise, smoking, stress, obesity, poor nutrition - all play a role in majority of adult hypogonadism. MD evaluation is needed.

The most common cause of delayed puberty in teenage boys now a days is exogenous obesity (due to leptin effect). Weight loss will be imperative

In brief: Healthy lifestyle
Some cases of hypogonadism are genetic/metabolic or due to definite acquired cause, but generally speaking unhealthy lifestyle can accelerate process of hypogonadism.

In brief: Sleep Deprivation
Besides aging, the two most common causes i see of secondary hypogonadism are sleep deprivation and vegetarianism. So, get a good night's sleep and eat meat.
