Teen & Preteen Fitness Programs
UAC youth programs build the fundamentals of fitness in our young community members. Active lifestyles in kids and teens results in not only physical health benefits, but also higher cognitive skills – (think improved school work performance!) – as well as improved self-esteem and self-image, paving the way for happy, healthy, active adults.
Junior Certification Program
Universal’s Junior Fitness Certification program teaches youth ages 12-15 proper weight training, fitness center etiquette, and safe use of cardio equipment. A Junior Certified teen may use selected fitness equipment without direct parental supervision, and must wear his or her Junior Certification badge in the fitness center. Students must complete one 3-hour training session and test successfully in specified fitness areas.
Sports Performance Training
The Sports Performance Program at Universal Athletic Club is designed to help youth ages 7-18 improve speed, agility, and self-confidence for an athletic foundation. Sessions take place in a fun, age appropriate atmosphere by certified trainers and sports performance coaches.
Before starting, all participants will complete an Athletic Evaluation. This helps determine a child or teen athlete’s strengths and areas for improvement. After the evaluation, the athlete and/or parent will meet with the coach to review the results and develop a training plan.
Camps & Specialty Events
From Birthday Parties to Kids Nights, Summer Camp and Field Trips, Universal Athletic is Lancaster’s top choice for kids activities every season of the year.
