Strength & Mindfulness
This class is for kids aged 9-13 who are looking to expend some of their energy, develop their coordination and flexibility, and learn proper form and technique.
It brings together strength-building exercises and relaxation techniques, so that they have the tools they need to develop a healthy mind-body connection when doing any physical activity.
It begins with fun, high-energy movements that give them the opportunity to build strength, endurance, coordination, and stamina. The class will then end on a more relaxed note, focusing on proper breathing techniques, flexibility, and mindfulness, for an effective and efficient cool-down.
This program is for children interested in learning the fundamentals of weightlifting. The focus is on forging strong movement patterns and learning basic lifts.
It’s geared toward kids aged 7-11. We will be introducing them to the fundamentals of lifting. It’s a non-competitive group, but the children who participate are really interested in learning and most are in our after school program and enjoy fitness.
Other children participate in the Jr Lifters program are also involved in competitive sport and use this program as a complement to their programming.
They will be using wooden dowel sets, weighted bars, balls, cable pulleys, and their own body weight.
