F.I.T. Programs (facing It together)
Core and balance
Stabilization, STRENGTH, and POWER
The Core muscles control the center of gravity and can be considered the foundation for all movement. The focus here will be the abs, legs, gluteus, and back… coupled with balance training which will challenge the youth’s limit of stability. Training towards obtaining a strong core will assist youth with having proper posture and healthy spinal alignment.
We will use circuit style training in which the youth will perform each exercise for 30 to 60 secs with minimal rest between each station. We will move to the tune of the latest kid friendly music and have fun as we get FiT.
strength and resistance
OPT Model, NASM
Proper strength and resistance training has been known to reduce the number of common injuries. We will use medicine balls, ropes, body weight, dumbbells, etc. while getting creative, yet, effective with our training. We will move to the tune of the latest kid friendly music and have fun as we get FiT.
With the use of jump ropes, reactive balls, short hurdles, and floor ladders, we will train in a modified system to include the use of explosive movements. This will allow the youth to enhance their agility and reaction. This program sets the stage for muscular development and reactive strength. The drills are set to be FUN and engaging and will have the youth asking for more.
