The Weight club is tailored to middle school student-athletes and follows the guidelines associated with the BFS Readiness Program which is designed for those students who are not yet ready to engage in the heavy weight training utilized by more mature student/athletes. After a student goes through the BFS Readiness Program, he or she will then graduate to the BFS Set-Rep System. Each student will have their own personalized record log book that will reinforce where to start, how to do the exercises, how to progress, how to coordinate other athletic activities into a total program and finally, how to graduate. Strict supervision is a must along with the teaching of proper technique to make the BFS Readiness Program work. The BFS Readiness Program has been endorsed and approved by medical doctors, orthopedic specialists and many professional organizations.
Day: Starting this Winter
