Dark Horse Athletic in partnership with Repsol Sport Centre is proud to offer this new program instructed by Olympians. Participants learn fundamental skills in a multi-sport environment to develop athleticism and foster an intrinsic love of sport. The program is focused on personal growth and fun. A typical Dark Horse session includes at least 15 minutes of free play and begins with a short discussion relating to one of the ‘four pillars’ of the program. Then onto a group warm-up with dynamic stretching, running form work and skating or skiing simulations to train the muscles of the lower body. After the warm up, the kids are divided into smaller groups for specific sport/balance/core training. Groups typically have a maximum of 7 or 8 kids per coach.
4 Pillars of Dark Horse Athletic
- FUN: Kids quit sport at alarming rates when it’s not fun.
- OWN IT: There is tremendous value in failure, in terms of growth and motivation, but only if one accepts responsibility and learns from one’s mistakes.
- CHALLENGE: Winning is fun but challenging yourself against a better opponent is also fun whether you win or not, and that’s how you get better.
- TEAMWORK: The concept of team is integral to growth and a broader perspective beyond one’s self.
REPSActive for Life
NEW FOR FALL 2017! This 6 week program will use resistance training to work every muscle group with an intensity that creates a massive metabolic disturbance, leaving your metabolism elevated for several hours post-workout. REPS focuses on training the large muscle groups, legs, glute, back and chest in order to burn more calories and elevate metabolism more than an isolated approach.
The first two weeks will concentrate on mobility and correct execution of the primary exercises to be used throughout the program. The following four weeks will focus on a hypertrophy REP phase to build muscle, burn calories and condition your body efficiently. One of our Certified Personal Trainers will be on-hand for each 90 minute session to lead and you through the circuit workout. You will need approximately 40 minutes to complete the circuit. You choose the days and times that work best with your schedule and may attend as many sessions as you want during the program.
Attend any of the class offerings throughout the week. We recommend 3 times/week.
