Youth Strength Training Class–Step 1

This program is designed for 11 year olds to the end of 8th Grade, to teach them the principles of weight lifting and how to use machines on the Wellness Floor. Successfully completing the course earns you a YMCA muscle shirt to be worn when using the Wellness Floor, track and studios. Youth Strength Training shirts need to be worn until High School.
