How old do I need to be to train at the facility?
This is usually a pretty difficult question for us to answer as it will vary on a case by case basis depending on athlete movement quality, history in the weight room, and overall physical and mental maturity. For athletes looking to come out here for more advanced full-time training, we usually draw the line at somewhere around 14 years old. This is generally based on what we feel the individual needs are for a younger athlete are versus what we provide for the typical in-gym trainee here at the facility. For athletes aged from 8 years old to *roughly* 13 years old, we have a youth session that will be starting up at the end of the Summer that is 3 days per week. We feel the drills, environment, and structure of the youth session is more in-line with what a younger athlete’s training demands truly are.

If you are a younger HS athlete looking to train with us as a regular trainee, it is important to take note of a few things. Firstly, you will be treated no differently than a college or professional athlete, so the expectation is that you will be able to handle yourself as such. Secondly, the gym’s culture is primarily shaped by college and professional athletes, so you will be exposed to that type of environment upon arrival. Lastly, you will be mixed in with higher level athletes (we do not differentiate slots on skill level), so it will be a great opportunity to learn from their routines, habits, and work ethic; take advantage!
If you have any additional questions regarding on-site training for younger athletes, please do not hesitate to give us a call at 425-523-4030 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
