Sports Strength & Conditioning at MAYEDA (grades 5-8)

If you are already playing a sport or have never played a sport at all but care about your health & fitness then this is the class for you! Get the competitive edge high school and college athletes have by adding a fun offseason strength & conditioning to your program without the hard core approach, not to mention improving risk of injury. If you don’t play a sport you will be introduced to lifelong principals that will help you discover activities you ENJOY and will want to do in the future. Because of our small class size we are able to give individualized attention and help you to be successful. Your coach is a former baseball player and Certified Personal Trainer.

Sports, Health & Fitness (grades k-4 Burnett)

Come learn a new sport every 2 weeks: Lacrosse, Golf, Volleyball, Basketball to name a few! We mix together fun strength & conditioning activities with flexibility, sports and nutrition. We always speak in correct anatomical terms so by the end of the semester everyone will know right where their gastrocnemius is! Our objective is to give the kids all the tools they need to live active & healthy lives so they don’t have to hire us as personal trainers at Sol Gym in a few decades. Arm them with knowledge in a fun, sports activity way. Because of our small class sizes each student gets personal attention to help find success and hopefully discover a hidden talent. Our instructor is a Certified Personal Trainer.
