Strength and Conditioning

The goal of The Walker School Strength and Conditioning program is to provide student athletes with proper instruction to prepare for competition and prevention of injury.

 

 

Classes

The Walker School Strength and Conditioning program is an evolving department focused on providing safe, structured, and beneficial training for Walker student athletes. Fitness classes are offered to all upper school students. Proper lifting and spotting techniques are taught in each fitness class and each class offers a wide variety of training protocol.

Facilities

The 3300 square foot weight room was renovated in 2009 and accommodates all fitness and strength training classes. The weight room has been outfitted with a complete line of Hammer Strength, Life Fitness, and Intek equipment. The basis of the Strength and Conditioning department is based in Olympic and multi-joint lifting , and the equipment and layout of the new weight room supports this ideal. All Olympic lifts are performed on 5 Olympic platforms completely outfitted with Intek bars and bumper plates. The 5 double power racks handle all squat and bench work. The conditioning area consists of 2 Life Fitness treadmills and ellipticals, 2 Airdyne bikes, and 2 Concept 2 rowers. The open floor plan also allows for dynamic warm-up, stretching, and plyometric training.
