Strength and Conditioning

Program Overview

The Fox Chapel Area High School Strength and Conditioning Program is designed to help female and male student- athletes in their athletic development in a safe and structured environment. The program, offered free of charge, aims to develop young people as athletes first, and then sports-specific players. Promoting healthy lifestyles and teaching scientifically-based training methods are part of the holistic approach taught by the program’s certified athletic trainers and coaches. The workouts also focus on building strength, power, speed, agility, and flexibility.
