Montgomery TennisPlex now offers fitness training for youth and adults seeking to improve athletic performance, improve general fitness and/or prevent injuries. Marceleus Venable, the new Fitness Director, brings 12 years of experience and over 25,000 clocked training hours to the PLEX. He is a certified personal trainer through the National Strength & Conditioning Association. He also holds several specialized certifications in Youth Fitness, Posture, Flexibility and ACL Prevention. People can now take advantage of the variety of programs offered.
The athletic performance program is for athletes starting from age 9 and up who compete in field or court sports. This high performance development program is the answer if you want to gain the competitive advantage through strength, speed, agility and quickness training. These sport-specific workouts are offered on an individual, small group or team basis and ensure that athletic goals are met while minimizing the risk to injury.
The youth training program is for ages 5 through 14. This program improves motor, spatial and cognitive skills through movement-based games and obstacle courses. Due to a reduction in physical education in many schools and a general lack of activity, childhood obesity and similar health challenges have become pervasive and this program ensures that youth get high quality exercise and have fun at the same time.
For adults seeking to re-engage in fitness activities or looking to take their current fitness to a higher level, boot camp programs are a great option. These 45-minute total body workouts focus on blasting fat, burning calories to get you moving and feeling better — even for those on a tight schedule.
