Speed Sessions for athletes ages 8-14  are currently running on Wednesdays at 6pm. 





Why Should Youth Athletes Strength Train?

In the past decade we have trained athletes as young as seven to be faster, more explosive, and more agile players. Youth athletes gain strength and movement patterns that will help them be more proficient in any sport. Training reduces the occurrence of on field injury, and increases player confidence! 

Youth athletes love to train. They are enthusiastic about getting strong and fast, but they don't know how to stay safe and get results. We have kids do exercises that are appropriate for their age and development. They gain strength and movement patterns that will help them be proficient on and off the field, court or in the pool.

  • The nervous system to becomes more efficient, so kids learn to react more quickly when jumping or changing directions
  • Protect against accidental injury by training shock absorption, body awareness, and spacial awareness
  • Athletes are engaged in fun, time tested, drills and skills that will keep kids wanting to learn more and grow in their athletic pursuits. Sports teams are great, but teaching kids to be successful in their own pursuits is the reason why we create champions. 

Youth Classes

Does you child need an edge to prepare for fall sports? 

Does he or she need to develop quickness, speed, and agility?

Our speed sessions are a fun and focused way to introduce young and developing athletes into the world of strength training and sports performance. We have implemented safety measures for athletes who want to continue to train during this pandemic. View our Safety Protocol HERE

Development of a Champion

We agree with you. Participation trophies do not equal success. Becoming a champion takes hard work and dedication, often over long periods of time. We create the environment for your child to learn what is possible. We teach skills that are both physical and mental components for success.

Sometimes athletes need help seeing the end goal, and we will guide him or her every step of the way. We know what your child is capable of. They just need to believe it. 

  • Custom Workouts. Every child is different, and so is every program we develop. We keep the exercises varied to develop the best possible combination of movements for each stage and development. When an athlete makes progress, and we adjustments to continue the momentum.

  • Sport Specific. We tailor training programs for the goals in each athlete's sport or training regimen. 

  • Focused Training. Youth athletes learn mental fortitude. We keep workouts exciting and competitive, but also challenging. The magic is in doing this consistently. 💪🏾

When Should Kids Start Training?

Two of the most common things parents ask is: 

Will lifting stunt my child's growth? 

I thought kids should not begin training or lifting until after puberty?

It is important that parents are accurately informed on what is beneficial and what can be harmful to kids training and lifting at a young age.

  • Physical Maturation - General stability and coordination are developed well before puberty. As long as your child can complete basic body weight movements, they can be physically mature enough to strength train.

  • Mental Attentiveness - Sets and reps are prescribed by a trainer throughout a training session. Your child will need to be accountable for their own workout without taking shortcuts or forgetting exercises.

  • Training Age - An eight year old that has been training for 2 years can move a barbell weighing 60 lbs. more efficiently than a twelve year old who never trained before. The body is constantly learning to adapt to stressful situations. With proper supervision a child can start training at any age.

If you are not sure if your child is ready, bring her in to try out a class. Our trainers would be happy to run your child through a short workout. They can provide feedback to help you determine if your child is developmentally ready for structured strength training.
