New Strength & Conditioning Programme for Young Athletes

05 Sep

The club will be launching a new weekly strength & conditioning programme aimed at young athletes aged 11-16 at City Academy School, St George just 5 minutes away from Whitehall Athletics track, starting on Friday 7th October 2016. Each session will run from 6 p.m. until 7.30 p.m.

These sessions come highly recommended to athletes across all disciplines as it is widely acknowledged that stronger athletes produce a consistently higher level of performance and get injured less often.

These sessions will focus on:

1)     Learning the techniques for weight lifting

2)     Resistance exercises with body weight

3)     Circuit training

4)     Medicine ball exercises

5)     Fundamental movements – Agility, Coordination and Balance  

6)     Elements of Athletics 365 ( multi skilled approach to developing young athletes)

The first 10-12 weeks will focus on developing a good strength base. Then the older/stronger athletes will be set more advanced programmes (involving weights where appropriate).  

You can choose to pay in a block or pay & train (it works out at £2 per session in a block or £3 per session for pay & train). If you are interested please contact Jon Jackson at  There is a limit on numbers, so please book up early to secure your place.
