How do I help my student gain confidence, increase athletic ability, lift safely, stay active….
Let us guide them to become the hero of their own story.
We’ve blended our youth program to gain the most out of the best programs out there. Strength and form with Starting Strength by Mark Rippetoe and CrossFit by Greg Glassman. I created this for my kids because I was unsatisfied with the programs available to them. This approach builds the body while taking into account the oddities of puberty.
During Summer Strength, students will learn proper form and technique. Dead Lift, Press, Bench Press, Back Squat, and Clean. These videos show gym owner, Andy McCann’s kids demonstrating these lifts: 2019 vs 2017 vs 2015. As students master form and gain strength, they will track their progress in our Wodify tool.

The focus of this class is to teach technique first and then to gain strength second. We only let the kids move up in weight as they demonstrate repeatable competency in the technique of that lift. This class is meant for boys and girls who want to improve their physical strength and body awareness.
Knowing nothing is a perfect place to start for a kid.
It is fine to start anytime in the first 2 weeks. After that it can be tough to catch up. We do a lot of form and technique drills to ensure we’ll be safe in the lifts over that time. It is also okay to miss due to camps, vacation, etc. This happens all the time.
