YOUTH DEVELOPMENT IS ONE OF OUR CORE VALUES.
The YMCA believes it is important to offer a variety of activities to promote good mental and physical health in our youth. We are constantly striving to create new programs that will enhance the well-being of area youth.
The YMCA is more than a gym, we're a community!
YOUTH STRENGTH TRAINING
Classes will be held on Tuesday evenings from 5 -6 PM, September 5 through September 26
Max 20; Min 5
Member $40; Non-Members $60
Taught by Juan “Tony” Nevarez
Training will include Squats, Bench, and Deadlifts.
Squat: always starting with safety, followed by basics of movement, followed by demonstration and evaluation of class individually.
Bench: start with safety, followed by basics of movement, followed by demonstration and evaluation of class individually.
Deadlift: start with safety, followed by basics of movement, followed by demonstration and evaluation of class individually.
Once the individual has shown proficiency in beginners coarse more in-depth and advanced courses could be taken.
The safety of each lift will be strongly enforced due to the difficulty of each of the lifts. This will be demonstrated and talked about in detail and is how every class will start. The importance of proper form will be shown and spoken about.
Each class will roughly be as follows: Safety talk, why it is important to lift safely. The form is the next topic, how form can affect or not affect how well you lift. Demonstration of lift and multiple variations, not everyone is built the same. Class performs lift first as a whole then individually to make sure that each person is able to grasp the importance of proper form.
The beginner class should be only an hour at most. The advanced classes will have to be longer and have a smaller cap for the number of participants. Max 7.
