The Sports Specific Conditioning (SSC) Program offers various options to CYC members. As a support program, young athletes and students from CYC can train specifically as a supplement to their sport, or their general lifestyle. Athletes and students alike can increase vital attributes like stability, strength, flexibility, conditioning and speed.
The program is designed and focused on achieving individual as well as team goals. The SSC Program can train football players, or athletes involved with basketball, soccer, swimming and much more. Also available in the SSC program is general and functional fitness. Many members take SSC classes to increase general fitness, maintain healthy bodies, and improve self-esteem. A child does not have to be an athlete to benefit from weightlifting and cardiovascular training.
SSC also prepares dedicated individuals to become student coaches. These coaches become proficient lifters and also learn various nutritional and stretching techniques. The student coaches will be more prepared to enter a field of physical fitness, if desired.
Class participants begin as novice lifters and are expected to work up to being experienced lifters requiring little to no supervision. Each student receives a training folder with basic programs aimed at progress through new challenges. Progressions are handed out weekly and many programs are available for students as well as athletes.
The program runs from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Usually members agree to a consistent time frame (generally 1 to 1.5 hours in length at least 2 days per week) within the open hours to train with the coaches. After 7:00 p.m. proficient lifters can workout without the interruption of open hours. There are also additional specialty classes offered like speed and agility, extreme balance training and flexibility development.
Basically, SSC is like group, personal training from skilled coaches.
