Summer Strength & Conditioning
This arm of the program allows enrolled students who have been training throughout the school year to continue that training during the summer; it also serves to introduce those upper school students who are newly enrolled to Westminster (or just new to strength and conditioning training) to the Strength & Conditioning program. For an excellent price (especially when compared to the cost of a personal trainer), our athletes receive instruction on proper lifting and running techniques, plyometrics, conditioning and diet. Contact Greg Schoenberg with questions.
Strength & Conditioning Classes
Students have the option to enroll in Strength & Conditioning classes (level I followed by level II) during the school day while earning one half credit toward their physical education graduation requirement. These athletes do not need to stay after school to work out and could instead use that time to study or practice sport-specific skill work.
Middle School Strength Training
Any Middle School student interested in lifting weights is invited to the weight room every Tuesday and Thursday from 3:45-4:30 p.m. You will be taught basic weight room procedures and learn a strength training routine specifically designed for your age group. There is no sign up required.
If a student is unable to fit one of the Strength & Conditioning classes into his or her schedule, he or she can work out after school on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 3:45 to 5 p.m.
These athletes are in “maintenance mode” because of the training they do in the off-season; this arm of the program is thus designed for athletes who need to maintain their levels of strength throughout the season. They work out two times a week for 30 minutes; these workouts focus on four lifts with slightly lighter weights. The student’s sports coach will address the conditioning element.
