This article is sponsored by our friends at Daman’s Strength Training in Beaver. 

Daman Strength Training has been innovating fitness and exercise for the past few years. There really isn’t anywhere else within the friendly confines of Beaver County you can go to participate in classes they have to offer, get the top-notch instruction from their teachers, and exercise in a facility such as theirs.

They’ve targeted high school athletes, moms, dads, ex-athletes, and now they’re going after a completely different target audience: the non-athlete. That’s correct. Daman Strength Training is launching year two of a class that is specifically geared toward adolescents who don’t move, don’t exercise, and have low confidence and self-esteem: the Movement Camp for Kids.

The coaches at DST want the kids who are playing PS4 or Xbox 1 three or four hours a day to join them. These coaches want to transform the lives of kids who ordinarily wouldn’t even touch a weight, a sandbag, or a kettle bell. Why? Because they want to make a difference.

Movement Camp for Kids was VERY popular last year. In fact, the class sold out. The goal is to create and form new habits for adolescents who, as I mentioned, lack any sort of exercise or movement in their lives. I’m sure everyone can think of at least one type of young teen who can benefit from this program! Below, you can read more information and details about the program from the coaches at Daman Strength Training.

The DST Process

We’ll start off by teaching proper movement patterns through simple bodyweight exercises and games. This will teach everyone how to position their body safely and effectively.

After a foundation has been set with bodyweight exercises we will begin using BASIC tools such as sleds, sandbags, and kettle bells. This will teach everyone how to safely apply force to objects other than their own body.

Consistently throughout the program we will keep everyone moving with the idea of athleticism in mind. Whether your child is an athlete or not we want to improve their movements which in turn will improve their quality of life!

Program Philosophy: What can I expect?

We will focus on four things throughout the Movement Camp for Kids classes.

  1. Movement Quality
  2. Improving Strength / Fitness
  3. Nutritional Education
  4. And… FUN!
