Perfect for Beginners
Full-size, complicated equipment can be intimidating for students to approach and use properly. Instead, these machines offer a scaled-back, friendlier option for students ages 10-14, allowing them to reap the benefits of proper cardio and strength training. Their accommodating size, brighter coloring, and uncomplicated setup makes teaching good fitness habits easy and maintaining them even easier! The result is a healthy attitude towards fitness and the development of a lifelong emphasis on working out.

Why incorporate youth strength training into my fitness program?
While it is true that young muscles, cartilage, and tendons should not be subjected to the strains of body building or power lifting, strength training with light resistance and an emphasis on technique and safety can be very beneficial.
Learn Proper Workout Habits. Qualified adult instruction and supervision is a must, as is stretching, warm-up, and cool down.
Improve Muscular Strength. For tracking progression and setting goals, focus on repetitions and proper technique rather than adding more weight.
Feel Better Inside and Out! Whether they are involved in sports or not, youth involvement in strength training helps build self-esteem, promotes healthy hearts, boosts the metabolism, strengthens bones, and lays the foundation for lifelong healthy and active lifestyles.
