RHINO DEN: Fun House & Jr. Strength/Conditioning Programs

FUN HOUSE: In this 8-week program, Coach Rob of Rhino Den, will use bands, ladders, obstacle courses and other easy to use equipment, to provide the best speed & agility training sessions for your child! Why is strength training important for youth? When done properly, strength training can; increase muscle strength and endurance, help protect your child’s muscles and joints from injuries, as well as help improve your child’s performance in nearly any sport. Strength training (or resistance exercise) increases muscle strength by making muscles work against a weight or force.

JR. STRENGTH & CONDITIONING: The CGJRSCP will be powered by Rhino Den This program will cover proper movement patterns and techniques required in training for both competitive (athletes/athletics) and non-competitive (Recreational trainers) attendees.
