Youth Athletic Programs
STRENGTH AND SPEED SCHOOL
This small group program focuses on barbell exercises in a linear progression method to increase the athletes overall strength as efficiently and safely as possible. Strength in young athletes is the most important aspect of their overall athletic ability. When athletic skill is equal, strength generally is the difference between winning and losing. Strength is the easiest aspect to increase for a young athlete.As time passes, genetics plus strength will determine an athlete’s level of success for a given sport or event. Strength is gained at a gym under the supervision of a knowledgeable strength coach. Proficiency of a particular sport or event is achieved on the field, wrestling mat, volleyball court, swimming pool or track. Having strength training in a gym and proficiency training of your specific sport is the best combination for your young athlete to succeed!
- Focused on athletes for ages 12 – 18.
- This program teaches young athletes the proper form and technique of strength and weight training that will be beneficial to them in the future.
- Program based on the training methods of Mark Rippetoe’s Starting Strength Program.
- Starting Strength as defined by Mark Rippetoe, “The Starting Strength System makes use of the body's most basic movement patterns – barbell exercises that involve all the body’s muscle mass – utilized over the longest effective range of motion and loaded progressively, to force the adaptations necessary for increased strength."
- Program is 4 days a week (Monday Tuesday Thursday Friday) 75 minutes per day plus a written out cardio workout plan (Wednesday’s workout). This workout is specific to each individual’s needs (i.e. some athletes, thinner in stature will not participate in cardio if strength is their main goal. But, if the athlete is a distant performer cardio will be included).
- Trainer works personally with each student and is on site each day from 2:30 – 4:30 PM (school year hours) to oversee technique, progress and results.
- We know not all of your student athletes are the same which is why our small group training is best for them because it is more personalized to their levels and their development.
- Summer 2019 Times and Dates:
- Start Date: Monday June 10th
- End Date:Wednesday August 21
- Class time will start at 9 AM and is a 75 minute class
