Student Athletes EOH

Posted: Updated:

As a new school year gets underway, student athletes are preparing for their various sports though-out the year. At Minot's YMCA, they are offering a new program designed to keep athletes on top of their game.

No matter what their sport, an athlete has to put a lot of work into it. These Minot High School football players are being trained at the YMCA in Minot. These are the type of exercises that will be included in a new program beginning September 9th, called APEX, or athletic performance extreme.

Kolton Larson, athlete, "I would recommend for anyone looking for that edge to stay stronger"

The YMCA has offered kinetics for students in the past, but this year they taking the training to a new level. APEX is individual training, in a group setting. Here's how it works: students are evaluated at the beginning, and then a program is designed for their individual strengths and weaknesses.

Kyra Brookins, Exercise Physiology " it's a good program, good trainers, all certified, it is for the individual, not a cookie cutter program"

APEX is open any athlete 12 and older, boys or girls, any sport. The trainers will target strength and conditioning, improving functional movement, speed and agility, as well as sports nutrition.

Kyra Brookins "I love seeing the athletics improve reaching their potential"

For YMCA members, the cost per student is 399 dollars for 8 weeks. The session is offered two days a week at the "Y" plus a home exercise program.

Kolton "as the coach says, you don't get better just because you get older, you have to work at it, to meet the competition"

Again the date it begins is Sept. 9th. To register go to Apexnd.org. For Eye on Health, I'm Carla Burbidge
