Junk Yard Dogs is the name of our Youth Strength & Conditioning program for athletes ages 13-18. JYD is a customized and cutting edge preparatory strength and conditioning program for youth athletes looking to build overall fitness and improve performance in their chosen sport(s).

We pride ourselves in our ability to design training programs specific to the demands and rigor of each sport and athlete. Athletes will become fluent in quality functional and sport specific movements through mobility, strength and power development, all while amplifying self-confidence and a positive outlook on health and wellness.

The one hour class usually runs as follows: 10 minute warmup, 5-10 minutes of mobility, soft tissue, and stretching work, 30 minutes of strength and skill development, 10-20 minutes of conditioning that blends strength and intensity together, plus 5-10 minutes cool-down, soft tissue and recovery work, and core strength development.

Our Junk Yard Dogs program is FUN and challenging for our athletes. We love seeing our youth athletes gain competency and confidence in the gym, and then go kick butt in whatever sport they wish to pursue. We have had great feedback in helping athletes gain an extra edge on the competition, as well as stay injury-free throughout the year. We want to see our kids succeed, and it is a pleasure to be a part of developing their life long love of fitness!
