Strength training has huge overall physical benefits, especially for young people. Benefits include increasing muscle strength, endurance, flexibility, speed, power and agility, all of which improves sports performance and also reduces the risk of injury.  


Regular strength training can help young people feel more confident about their physical abilities, which can translate into improved self-esteem and self-confidence in other areas of their lives. It can also help with stress and anxiety levels.

Hear from our qualified coaches

At the heart of this programme is encouraging a sense of adventure, passion and joy in kids and teens when playing their favourite sports, trying new things and tackling life’s challenges so they can step out of the gym or sports hall environment knowing they can do whatever they set out to do.

Plus coaching kids is a great feeling, especially when you make it fun for them to learn. -Chelsea, Brand X Method coach.
