The Sault Ste. Marie Gymnastics has been working with Tyler Belanger
who owns 17 Barbells to create a Conditioning Program for our
Recreational Program to help the children build strength, coordination, endurance and flexibility. The children will be making use of the conditioning corner in the back of the gym as well as conditioning on the floor at various times throughout the session. In addition, our warm ups have also been enhanced to include conditioning components tailored for each age group.
Our staff has taken a workshop on how to implement and teach the proper techniques and skills needed to work with each child’s individual capabilities (both strength and weaknesses). We will be working with your children to learn squats, push-ups, rings, rope climb and building strength. They will get to use ropes, rings, weights, balls, etc.
For the Fall 2019 session every child will be taught a conditioning program based on their class. This will improve both strength and flexibility based on age and ability using techniques and equipment taught in this workshop, while leaving room for an individualized approach to each athletes fitness.
Reports will not be given this session, however for a more detailed look into what your child has accomplished in this program you can ask in the office at the end of the session.
We are excited about this new component and hope that your children will enjoy it!
