There are so many benefits to getting started with resistance training at a young age, including:

  • Increase muscular strength and power
  • Improve the cardiovascular risk profile
  • Improved motor skill performance which can enhance sports performance
  • Increase resistance to injuries
  • Improve psychosocial well-being and overall resiliency
  • It can help promote good exercise habits throughout the rest of their life

We all want the best for our kids, so enrolling them to learn how to properly train while getting stronger physically and mentally is a no brainer.
