This year we are very fortunate that we are offering weight training for 7th and 8th graders.  The weight training classes are helping students learn the importance of weight training.  We also hope this promotes a positive lifestyle in our students and encourages them to exercise.  


  • Weight Training Program:
    The focus of our weight program to build strength and muscle by not over training.  Muscles need time to rebuild and recoup from their previous workout.  We are going to focus on two muscle groups a day and train those muscles hard.
