Too young for the gym? You can’t be too young to get injured. 🤔

The majority of leg injuries in sport happen when landing or changing direction. (Actual scientific fact 👨🏼‍🔬)

🏋🏼‍♂️ These injuries are usually down to weakness and could be avoided by properly preparing the body for sport.

💪🏼 It’s not about big muscles, it’s about strong muscles that protect the body.

If your child is playing sport then you need to read this.

Does your wee one light up on Saturdays with excitement over the fact that it’s game day?

They get to stick their boots on, pull on their strip that makes them feel like one of their heroes they watch on the TV and they go play a game that they love with their pals.

As their parent you are the one that gets to watch on with pride as they give their all on the pitch, no to mention provide all logistical support (lifts, equipments, trips to McD’s after the game if they score etc).

It’s safe to say you are invested in your kids athletic endeavours.

Which is why Youth Train & Gain is something you need to know about.

Youth Train & Gain is the flagship youth training program in Glasgow with countless top level youth athletes and very happy weans attending on a weekly basis.

Youth Train & Gain is a group based weight training program that’s ran in our private facility in Glasgow city centre.

We designed this class because we wanted to provide a class that improves kids performance in their chosen sport and gives them a positive introduction to weight training that sets them up for a lifetime of physical health.

So as you watch your bundle of joy playing the game that they love on this bitter Saturday morning think about how much Youth Train & Gain could benefit them.

For more details on how you can get your little star Athlete involved in Youth Train & Gain send us a message.

Have you ever read one of our posts about Youth Train & Gain and thought, what do the weans do in those classes?

If you have then today is your lucky day.

Because you’re about to get a wee peak behind the curtain of a Youth Train & Gain class.

Each of our Youth athletes has their own individual plan that is designed to strengthen their weaknesses and develop the qualities that they need to excel at their chosen sport (and life in general).

Individual plans mean that the finer details vary but what’s that old saying again?

‘Methods are many, Concepts are few’.

Every one of youth athletes work on their total body strength with compound moves such as overhead press and squat.

We also have them doing a lot of jumping and landing because this is a highly effective way of improving coordination, athletic performance, joint strength, ligament & tendon strength, and making the wee ones less prone to injury.

Each plan has progressions in place so that every session presents a new challenge for each athlete which keeps them moving forward towards their goals.

That’s the technical stuff.

The other side of things is all about kids getting together, having fun, and introducing the youth of today to the gym based exercise in the most positive, welcoming, and fun atmosphere you will find.

Not too mention the world class tunes that nearly take the roof off during every session.

Got any further questions about Youth Train & Gain?

You can message us whenever you want and we’ll fill you in on the details.

Imagine hitting out with that social hand grenade of a statement at a family dinner?

There would be uproar!

You can imagine your Auntie Janice giving it ‘Shut it ya dafty’ and your smart arse brother hitting out with ‘Well how do you explain the curved horizon then?’.

But what if you hit out with ‘KIDS SHOULDN’T LIFT WEIGHTS’?

You’d probably have a whole table in agreement.

Which is mental because those two statements contain the same amount of truth, ZERO.

Kids should absolutely be lifting weights if they enjoy it, if they play a sport, and if they want to set themselves up in the strongest possible position for their future.

Now, let’s define what ‘lifting weights’ means in the context of youth training.

Youth weight training should be tailored to the kids individual needs, focused on developing total body strength, core stability, coordination, and resiliency to injury.

It’s not about asking weans to do dangerous exercises or weans walking about with bulging muscles.

The proof of Youth weight training can be found by looking at our regular Youth Train&Gain crew.

These guys turn up every week to their private group session and work hard on the tailored training programs that have been designed to maximise all the attributes laid out above.

Youth Train&Gain is a way to make your kids chosen sport more enjoyable for them as they will be physically superior and their injury risk will be much lower.

If you want to find out more about Youth Train&Gain and how it can benefit your mini athlete then contact us directly and we’ll lay out the entire process for you & answer any questions you may have.

We want to say a massive well done to our very own Leah Donnelly, who’s football team won the South East Kim Little U13’s League this weekend!

Although Leah hasn’t been part of our Young Team for very long, we can see how passionate she is about playing football - and the effort she puts into her sessions really shows how much she wants to improve her game 💪🏼

Again, massive well done Leah, it’s well deserved ⚽️💯

What about the youth of today eh?

Smartphones, computer games, flossing, youtube, and dabbing (not sure that’s still cool).

Not like back in your day when you old dear would chase you out the house at the crack of dawn and you wouldn’t even dare think about asking to play inside.

Back in your day when all you needed was a ball and some jumpers, or some chalk and skipping ropes.

Back in your day when you used to chace the icey down the street and pay for sweeties with bottles of limeade and Irn-Bru.

Kids are changing aren’t they?

That’s something that you can’t do a single thing about, we are in a tech obsessed world and kids are going to be influenced by that no matter what.

But kids are still kids.

They still run about daft, have wild imaginations, drive you up the wall, fill you with pride, make you laugh, make you greet, and are the motivation behind why you go to work in the morning.

They also still love getting involved in clubs and you have no doubt introduced your youngster to something that they cannot wait to get to every week.

It’s almost more of a requirement today because of the lack of outside playing time that kids have in comparison to previous generations.

That’s the same responsibility that inspired our Youth Train & Gain classes.

We knew it wouldn’t be easy to market thanks to a TON of misinformation about weight training being bad for young kids (which it total nonsense and no it doesn’t stunt their growth).

But we were determined to provide a safe, inclusive, and fun environment where kids could improve their strength and resiliency to injury as well as one where parents felt their kids were under the watchful eye of expert coaches who had their best interests at heart.

And that is why Youth Train&Gain was born.

With countless testimonials from parents and kids we know that we are providing a valuable service to the people of Glasgow.

We also know that we can reach more parents and show them just how valuable Youth Train&Gain classes can be for their kids health, performance, and well being.

Watch this space people, Youth Train&Gain is going BIG.
