Kids think they know it all--- and unfortunately so do some adults.
Strength and Conditioning for athletes is serious business. Do it on your own or have an incompetent coach or trainer and they could possibly severely retard or stop athletic and fitness prowess & progress--
Short-Term Or Permanently!
We understand not everybody has the time to attend Improvement Warrior Athlete New Albany on a regular basis.
Some want to do it on their own-- either at home or at the gym. That is fine, but we at IWA know the dangers of that. Because we see it with all the kids (and adults) who come into our program. 95%+ all need major form corrections.
Especially with an unqualified coach and/or doing it on their own.
We want to make sure that success is guaranteed when performing every single exercise.
So if you child is performing any of the following:
- Barbell Lifts
- Olympic Lifts
- Kettlebell Training
- Dumbbell Training
- Jump Training
- Agility Training
- Plyometric Training
- Speed Training (form)
Then you need to have your child come in for the AR Weight Training Assessment.
The body is adaptable. Performing exercises or athletic movements with crappy form will produce a crappy results. And will leave your young athlete at a much greater risk for injury.

'Strength Training on machines which restrict the movements of the joints involved....thereby reduce the functional or sport-specific capability of many of the muscles used to execute that (sporting) movement).
