As we work to build our Local Strong Community, it is important to us to start with our young people. We have partnered with Odyssey Prep in Goodyear to bring an after school program to their K-5th grade students. Starting Tuesday, September 8th Coach Cole McGuire will be teaching 1 youth fitness class per week at the Odyssey Campus in Goodyear. The first quarter will consist of 7 one hour classes on Tuesday afternoons from 4:15-5:15pm.
Our goal of this class is to make fitness fun, to teach foundational skills, movements, goal setting, basic nutrition, teamwork and various real world skills including math, social skills, motivation and focus. Students will learn the importance of fitness and nutrition, and have fun while doing so. A typical session will consist of a group warm-up, foundational movement development (squatting, push press, sit-ups, kettle bell swings, etc.), CrossFit style workout, game, and cool down/stretch. Coach Cole is certified to teach Elementary Education and K-12th grade Special Education in the state of Arizona, and is a CrossFit Level I trainer.
Registration is open now. You can register online at Odyssey After School Program or call the gym at 623-932-4338.
