Strength training for youth, when done appropriately and under proper supervision, can have several benefits. Here are five potential benefits of youth strength training:
Improved physical performance: Strength training can help improve strength, power, and endurance, which can improve overall physical performance in activities such as sports and recreation.
Reduced risk of injury: By improving strength and coordination, youth strength training may help reduce the risk of injury in sports and other physical activities.
Increased bone density: Strength training can help increase bone density, which is particularly important for youth as they are still developing bone mass.
Improved self-esteem: As youth become stronger and more confident in their physical abilities, they may experience a boost in self-esteem and self-confidence.
Improved overall health: Strength training can help improve overall health by reducing the risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes and obesity, and by promoting a healthy body composition.
At RF, we are currently expanding our Youth Strength Training Program. Our focus is on teaching the fundamentals of strength training and technique. We want our young members to learn the ins and outs of working out in a supportive and helpful atmosphere.
As we push for strength, we will emphasize quality over quantity. Our youth training schedule is Tuesdays at 4 pm, Thursdays at 4 pm, and Saturdays at 9 am. Classes run 60-90 minutes and we have options to train 2x per week ($180 per month) or 3x per week ($225 per month). * All membership fees are recurring billing and follow a month-to-month commitment. If you are interested in training with us, reach out for a complimentary intro session. Schedule an intro session with us here.
