With the launch of our new Triangle Sports Performance Summer Program, we want to talk about the benefits of sports training for young athletes.

So, the answer is OF COURSE!

Young children are encouraged to get out and participate in physical activity, especially in this technology driven generation where cell phones, video games and TV shows pull us inside and on the couch. Physical activity can easily be obtained through PE classes and through any kind of sport that they might play.

However, young athletes that are serious about their sport need a different kind of training as they continue to develop and grow in the developing young stages of their lives. The specific training is targeted around the developmental stages that the athletes are going through and aims to lessen/prevent injury during practice or a game.

Training usually consists of a combination of resistance training and strength training. Not only does strength training help promote bone and muscle growth, it also helps to maintain a healthy blood pressure, cholesterol level and weight. The last benefits may not be super beneficial for them now, but they will definitely be thankful for it when they get older.

The internal effects are just as important as the external. What are the external, you ask? Training can easily boost a young athletes confidence and self-esteem. Think of your child scoring that touchdown or goal during the soccer game and having a crowd cheer for them. Can you imagine the smile on their face as their team high fives them?

During our program at +BEYOND Fitness, our goal is to help our athletes reach their performance goals, gain a competitive edge and minimize their risk of injury. Our coaches have a passion for helping athletes to achieve their goals and love to see their students excel and get stronger and better. The classes start on May 2nd and last through July 22nd and will be on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6PM at BEYOND Fitness. During a special free trial, we have already seen fantastic results in our athletes and we can't wait to see what kind of results that the summer program will bring us!
