Youth Strength & Conditioning Training (11 - 16 years)
Whether you’re starting your path towards life-long wellness or trying to maintain or gain that competitive edge, there is no better time than adolescence to begin a good strength and conditioning program. It’s during these years when most athletes and health-minded individuals decide to pick up the dumbbells for the first time. Beginning a safe and effective program is the first step towards athletic success and a well-balanced healthy lifestyle.

Fitness Safety Orientation Program 
Children ages 10-12 must be on a family membership and may use the gym alone for cardio only if they complete the orientation sessions with a trainer. The orientation is free and teaches them how to use the cardio equipment safely. Teens ages 13-17 may be on a family membership or purchase an individual student membership. They have full access to the fitness facility and group exercise classes if they complete the orientation sessions with a trainer.
