Over the past year I have found myself working with more and more younger clients, so much so that a large section of my client base are under the age of 18. I’ve greatly enjoyed working with these youngsters and now I have dedicated much more of my time to specialising in youth physical development.
I coach a wide range of backgrounds and abilities, from national level athletes, to weight and health management, to preparation for a future in the military, and anything in between. I use a variety of exercise types to do so, including resistance training. There’s often a stigma that goes with resistance or ‘gym training’ for adolescents, which if performed poorly I can see why.
However, in more recent years there has been much research that suggests; when carried out correctly and safely there are many positives that can be achieved, such as; bone health, injury prevention, increased motor skills, body composition, etc, etc. If you’d like any more information on what mode(s) of training your child would benefit from feel free to ask.
