Sweat City Fitness: Summer Program for Youth Athletes in Santa Monica »June 15 - July 3

3/6 WEEK SUMMER SPEED & STRENGTH DEVELOPMENT
If you're the parent of a young athlete, I have a great summer program for you.
For the past several years working with young athletes, I've learned a very important thing: "Strength" is the backbone of athletic performance.
Strong kids run faster. Strong kids jump higher. Strong kids get hurt less. Strong kids play with more confidence.
So please keep reading if you're interested in seeing your young athlete have a "Breakthrough" summer.

Program Details:
This program is for athletes 9-18 years old, all sports welcome. Each session will be capped at 6 athletes to ensure proper attention to form and mechanics.

The program is 3 weeks long, but you may elect to do 6 weeks at a discounted rate. Athletes will choose whether to train 2 or 3 times per week.

We will hold 2 trainings each week at our training facility in Santa Monica to perform strength and flexibility work. We will hold 1 training per week at nearby Clover Park to work on speed, agility, and conditioning.
This program is 100% safe for pre-adolescents!

Here's the Results you Can Expect:

At the end of the program, your athlete will:

  • Improve body control and coordination
  • Understand the work ethic it takes to succeed at the next level
  • Move with the proper mechanics to reduce the chance of injury
  • Run faster, jump higher, move quicker, hit/kick harder
