Youth Fitness at The J  

Youth Training

Ages 8-12 and 13+
September 6 - October 28

The J's Youth Training is an 8-week program. Each session runs 60 minutes with the option of sessions 2 days/week (16 sessions) or 1 day/week (8 sessions). A Create-Your-Own-Group option is also available. 

This program develops athlete’s physical and mental conditioning taking their performance to a new level on and off the field or court. Advance your child’s strength, speed, cardiovascular capacity, mobility, power and more!

Whether the sport is football, baseball, soccer, basketball, volleyball, softball, tennis, golf or track & field - Youth Training includes programming to challenge core strength, develop physical stamina, and improve total body power.

Program Overview:

Agility: (Increase mobility, foot speed and lateral movement technique)

  • Develop lower body mobility to strengthen muscles, tendons and ligaments surrounding the hip, knee, and ankle joints.
  • Increase change of direction speed and quickness (separation and closing speed)

Speed and Reaction: (improve total body power and muscle endurance)

  • Reactive agility may be the most underrated and underused training method for athletes. Recent studies have shown that the best athletes have better reactive agility. It is the decision-making aspect, and the reaction to an external cue, in these drills that make them so beneficial. Incorporating these drills into your program will improve play on the field or court by helping the athlete react faster and anticipate the next move of the opponent.


  • Increase cardiovascular levels for durability
  • Decrease recovery time and lactic acid build-up in the legs
  • Maintain a high level of speed for the duration of the competition
