Youth Classes

A strength & Conditioning Gym for kids & Teens

The success of young athletes, regardless of the sport they play is based on 3 factors: SKILL DEVELOPMENT (their sport practice), ATHLETICISM (S&C) and INJURY PREVENTION (S&C) for longevity.

Whether your kid is involved in court sports such as tennis, netball, or basketball, or field sports such as rugby, AFL, cricket, hockey, or soccer, our programs are designed to develop the physical abilities that are necessary for success on the field or court.

The Programs at our kids and teenager Brisbane gym are split in 2 groups: the YOUTH ATHLETIC FOUNDATIONS (7-11yo) and YOUTH ATHLETIC DEVELOPMENT (12-16yo)

The FOUNDATION group focuses on developing general fitness, movement competency, and speed and agility. These foundational skills are essential for all sports and will give your child the tools they need to excel in any athletic pursuit.

Our Youth ATHLETIC DEVELOPMENT group will take their athletic performance to the next level, focusing on strength development, acceleration, and agility. These skills are essential for success in field sports such as rugby, AFL, and soccer, where speed and power are key. They are also important for court sports such as tennis, netball, and basketball, where agility and quickness can make the difference between winning and losing.

Developing superior athleticism is not just about winning games. It’s also about building confidence, self-discipline, and mental toughness.

These qualities are essential for success both on and off the field or court, and they will serve your child well throughout their lives.

So whether your child is a beginner or an experienced athlete, our Youth Strength and Conditioning programs are designed to help them reach their full potential and achieve their goals. Contact us today to learn more and to enroll your child in our programs.

The aim of ATHLETIX gym is to play a significant role in children’s physical and mental development; that is why we offer various kids and teenager fitness classes. You can choose the program as per your requirement. Check out our program for children in Fortitude Valley.
