Teen Free-Weight Training Program
At the Foothills Area YMCA, safety is our top priority. Our policy for teen equipment usage is that members 12-14 may use any cardio and selectorize machines, members ages 15+ may use any equipment in the gym unsupervised. However, if you would like your 13 or 14 year old to learn to how to use equipment in the free-weight area, your teen can work with a personal trainer to learn how to use free-weight equipment safely.
- Develop a challenging and safe exercise program specific to the teen’s current capabilities and individual needs. As the teen progresses, more exercise modalities will be introduced to them.
- Learn about proper exercise techniques and safety features on equipment to reduce the risk of exercise-related injuries
- Build strength, postural awareness and core stability to progress to more advanced equipment
