Gym For Kids - March 18-22

Introduction to Weight Training & Exercise for Boys & Girls


All the stuff I wish I knew when I was 14!


Weight gain and unhealthy living get worse after high school when sports and gym class are no longer a daily required part of a students day. Exercising in a gym is now the long term answer to weight management & health. 

This program is designed for Junior High and High School (Ages 12-17) Boys and Girls. It is not designed for only 'athletic' children, but rather all children who may have shown an interest in weight training in a home or school gym.

What is this program all about?

Introduction to the weight room machines, dumbells, and cardio pieces, basically giving you all the info I wish I knew when I started in my basement and the Three Oaks weight room in Grade 10. Program runs Monday March 18 - Friday March 22 at 11am for 60 minutes.

Check Out Our Program from July 2018


Day One

 Day 1 in our Gym for Kids program finished up. 6 boys and 4 girls have joined us for the week. On Monday we went over general themes like sets and reps, gym etiquette like sharing equipment, putting our weights away and personal hygiene (ie not being the smelly kid lol). Our workout focus was the back muscles (pull-ups, rows, pull downs) along with an intro to steady state cardio. 


Day Two

 Tuesday we focused on shoulders (press overhead, side, front and rear raises) along with a 7 minute blast of interval cardio.  


Day Three

Wednesday is traditionally our leg day as it gives a mid week break for the upper body which was worked the first two days. Today we focused on leg press lifting from 45lbs to 275 lbs, lunges, deadlifts, squats and leg curls. no cardio today as we rest the legs after leg training.


Day 4

Day 4 in our Gym for Kids program now wrapped up. Day 4 was biceps and triceps with interval body weight cardio in the classroom (our famous 3 minute song finishers) 


Day 5

 Day 5 finished up with stomach and glutes (bum). We performed planks, bicycles, donkey kicks and hip extensions ( which got a lot of laughs!)
