How many times have you wondered where you would be today as an athlete if you knew then what you know? If you had someone who could get you to the next level at an early age, have run faster, hit the ball 300ft, able to slam dunk?? Why wait until your child gets into high school for advanced training. Why wait until they are in college to train at an elite level.
Well I am here to make sure that young athletes have every chance to reach their goals now rather than later. Even if you just want your child to feel better about how they look, their health, or just be more active.
Let’s first put to rest the “MYTH” about youth training. I am sure you have all heard the stories… “My child will remain short if he/she strength trains”… “His/her bones will not grow”… “Their tendons are too weak”. Are you ready for this! They are all wrong, studies have shown that strength and resistance training is not only safe but actually benefits your child’s development in many ways.
When performed properly, strength training not weightlifting or power lifting actually strengthen bones, ligaments and tendons which in turn reduce the risk of sports related injuries.
For kids, what are the benefits of strength training?
Done properly, strength training can:
- Increase your child’s muscle strength and endurance
- Help protect your child’s muscles and joints from sports-related injuries
- Improve your child’s performance in nearly any sport, from dancing and figure skating to football and soccer
Keep in mind that strength training isn’t only for athletes. Even if your child isn’t interested in sports, strength training can:
- Strengthen your child’s bones
- Help promote healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels
- Help your child maintain a healthy weight
- Improve your child’s confidence and self-esteem
Now that you know the facts, don’t let another day go by. I am a certified professional trainer of youths. Most coaches, whether it is a team, pitching, hitting, or other coaches are not certified on how to strengthen young athletes. Just because someone is a coach, it does not necessarily qualify them as strength and conditioning trainer and will more times than none incorrectly train your children. Let me help you maximize your child’s full potential and have them performing at high school and college levels TODAY!
Take the first step at helping your children become a healthier person and an elite youth!!
