Youth Strength and Conditioning

Youth Strength And Conditioning

At Pontifex Physiotherapy we are proud to support our youth and setting them up for a great future. This is why we have developed a Learn To Lift Program for ages 13-18. This program will develop life long skills and fundamental principles of lifting weights. Everyone that completes the program will walk away with the confidence to continue developing these new skills and valuable lessons throughout life.

The Package Includes:

  • 6 x 1 hour gym based sessions with instruction from physiotherapists with experience in strength and conditioning

  • Key exercises aimed at developing functional strength for injury prevention and increased performance

  • Learn lifelong skills in lifting weights in key exercise movements

  • Individualised Home exercise program included and upgraded weekly with an video-based exercise app (Physitrack)

  • Video analysis of key exercises to ensure you are performing the exercises correctly in the gym or at home

  • Each session is available for Private Health Insurance Rebate*

  • All 6 sessions to be booked on sign-up day to receive the discounted rate

The principles of strength and conditioning training can be applied to anyone who wants to improve their health and function in everyday living. These health benefits include:

    • Increased energy levels
    • Increased strength and functional ability
    • Promotion of better sleep and recovery
    • Improvements in body composition
    • Reducing the risk of conditions such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease

Key Exercise You Will Learn and Become Competent In Performing:

  • Warm-up routine

  • Deadlift

  • Specific Shoulder Strengthening Exercises

At the conclusion of this program, patients will be confident to continue a lifting program either with a home gym setup or at a commercial gym. The best benefit for both participants and their parents/guardians is that patients will gain lifelong lifting skills and understanding how our body is designed to move. This will help reduce the risk of potential significant back, neck and shoulder injuries that plague today’s society.
