Did you know we also specialize in working with youth and high school sport athletes? This population of athletes have developing bodies that require meticulous attention and training to ensure that they are progressing in the right direction. Training with our coaches and in our methods provide them with a variety of benefits, including: – Dramatically reducing the prevalence of injuries that often occur as a result of sport specialization, lack of proper movement patterns and/or being pushed into situations that their bodies just aren’t ready for. We recognize these problems, and train solutions to combatting them. – Learning the proper way to lift under the supervision of our coaches in a small group environment. Oftentimes, weight rooms have tremendously out of balance instructor:student ratios, and the proper attention is not given to each athlete. For developing athletes who can be prone to peer pressure to lift heavy weights without sufficient technique, this can (and often does) result in life altering injuries. This is especially true in lifts like Cleans, Squats and Deadlifts. Our coaches specialize in coaching these lifts. We have 1 CSCS coach, 3 USAW Weightlifting coaches and 5 CrossFit coaches, so we really, really know how to coach this stuff. – Properly preparing for their season. Unfortunately, youth athletes often go from 0 to Full Speed in their respective sports from season to season. Some kids have been playing other sports, and some haven’t been doing anything. Changing gears like that can be hard on a young body if considerations aren’t taken and/or they haven’t been preparing adequately. Our properly and progressively planned conditioning work allows for these athletes to be properly prepared to get going in practices and games as soon as season starts. – Team building in the pre-season. Before seasons start and courts/fields are available, training as a team in our facility can provide for an environment that allows for practicing together as a team before they might normally be able to. Athletes that often take a few weeks to get to know each other get a head start in here. Plus, they have a lot of fun! We’re currently booked on teams through March 11th, but will be available in Spring for more teams. Our Youth Strength and Conditioning Class happens every MWF at 6:30pm and every Saturday at 9am.
