About the Program 

At the YMCA, we have two primary goals for our Iron Teens Program. 

Our first goal is to help our youth elevate their love for health and fitness that lasts into adulthood. Studies show that youth who exercise have stronger bones and muscles, have more control over their weight, reduction of anxiety and depression, and reduced risk for developing health conditions. 

Our second goal is to help them build strength to protect them from injuries. They will learn specific movement patterns that make them less likely to get injured in sports. 

Iron Teens will ideally be a group atmosphere where teens will learn how to lead others through inspiration, communication and encouragement. This class will be led by a certified personal trainer who will keep a close eye on the participants during the entire class, offering cues, motivation, and support. On top of all of the health benefits, completing Iron Teens will help our youth be more confident and safe in the weight room environment. 

After completing the class, youth will be permitted to use the fitness center without adult supervision. Because the Y aims to teach youth the importance of reliability and honoring commitments, 100% attendance is mandatory. To successfully complete the program, participants must pass a test at the end with a 75% or greater. We encourage all youth 12 years and above to take their health into their own hands with Iron Teens!

Iron Teens is instructed by trainer Nolan Conley.
