Over the years, more kids are finding their way to the gym at younger ages. Some kids are trying to get stronger for their respective sports. Whether it’s football, baseball, basketball or whatever sport they choose, young athletes are being funneled to gyms to get stronger and enhance their athletic capabilities. While this is a good thing generally, a lot of kids do not have access to someone who can show them how to properly move under a heavy barbell. Sure, there is tons of information available on the internet, but having a teacher with experience is always better, and a lot of times young athletes don’t really know what to look for. A lot of schools do not have the funds or see the necessity of having a proper strength coach who can program and teach according to their kids’ needs. Unfortunately, kids can get hurt because they’re doing something they shouldn’t and don’t realize it, or they don’t know how to optimize their time and don’t develop as much as they could.
This summer at the Atlas Strength Shop in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, we will be offering a summer strength camp for athletes in the local area. We will host an eight week program that will give young athletes a chance to lift under the supervision of experienced coaches. The goal of this program will be to prepare them for their respective sports, if they play one, and to teach them how to train safely and properly in the gym. Our program will be designed with needs in mind to help build a foundation that they can expand on throughout their years. We remember what it was like walking into a gym for the first time and not knowing what to do and maybe feeling intimidated by the other gym goers. We will provide a safe and productive environment for everyone who partakes in the program and do everything we can to help them grow.
