Weight Training and Athletic Fitness


Course Description: Weight Training and Athletic Fitness class is focused on learning the basics of weightlifting and personal fitness.  During class you will be introduced to a wide variety of weight training exercises as well as total body fitness.  If you’re thinking, “I have never been in a weight room before,” this is not a problem.  The truth is that you are not alone.  Many kids your age have never been in a weight room or have used the equipment.  Each machine will be explained and demonstrated for you. We will also gage your personal fitness by using a variety of drills and exercises to push yourself to the next level.  With the use of plyometrics and special drills, we will work on speed, agility, power, quickness, and reaction time to have an overall understanding of what the human body is capable of accomplishing.  If you enter this class with an open mind and are willing to try new things, you will get more out of this class then you initially expected.
