Some people say that strength training is inappropriate—maybe even dangerous—for teens.
Hold the phone! Not so fast.
The evidence is in, and here’s the truth. Strength training is perhaps the single most effective method for teens to:
- Develop a strong musculoskeletal system that can withstand the rigors of sport participation
- Improve body composition
- Reduce the risk of muscle overuse and imbalance problems
- Enhance their running economy
- Ward off the degenerative effects of the aging process
- Perform their daily activities with more energy
BAM! Juicy stuff, right? Plus, strength training gives teens a MAJOR confidence boost—helping them connect to their inner strength and power.
Our Teen Training program is NOT just a watered-down version of an adult training program. Nope. It’s designed to meet teens where they are, and give them progressive exercise focused on fundamental fitness conditioning (which includes strength, flexibility, agility, power, and aerobic endurance). It’s developmentally appropriate, and led by our own Paulie Camacho—the most fun, energetic, friendly guy you’ll ever meet.
When: Thursdays 7:00- 8:00 PM
Tuition: $100 per 4-class pack
