And we finished it all off with some awards and pictures which I have emailed to the parents. If your son or daughter participated but you didn’t receive the photos let me know and I’ll ge those to you.
Now some people might think this wasn’t very productive with all the fun and games that were going on.
Far from it!
As coaches we noticed definite improvements in posture and core stability. We observed ideal technique on basic squatting, hinging and pressing movement patterns. There was a dramatic change for the better in the ability to reduce speed, control movement and change direction.
In a way it kind of felt like Mr. Miyagi in the Karate Kid where we had the athletes perform particular drills as part of a game which later resulted in improved athletic performance.
And while we observed and recorded all these benefits, we are going to be changing the way we are doing things with our Youth Fitness Training. We are going to be employing a new model of training that is geared more towards long term athletic development. A model that is more specific to the individual rather than generic goals. And a model that rewards the process and the establishment of positive habits rather than the immediate goal.
With that in mind I want to announce our Fall 2011 Youth Fitness Training will be starting up next week September 12, 2011.
Unless the weather allows us to be outdoors the training will be at our facility at 1511 Sutherland Ave.
1 day per week $47/month
2 days per week $87/month
At a little over $9 per session we expect this fill up quickly.
To reserve your spot stop by our training facility at 1511 Sutherland Ave and lock up your spot today.
ps…a very special thank you to Kayla, Megan and Jordy for doing an awesome job with the Youth Fitness Training this summer!
