Pre-Camp Fitness

Summer is here and camps are getting started. It’s essential that athletes come to camp physically prepared so that they can get the most out of their summer training. With that in mind we have created a list of pre-camp fitness activities.

Pre-Camp Fitness Preparation

Please arrive well rested and in good physical condition! We suggest a fitness program that includes aerobic activity (bike, run, or swim), and a 50 push-up / 100 sit-up routine on a regular basis.

  • Run 1 mile or bike 3 miles (or other similar aerobic activity)
  • 10 minutes of stretching (Legs, back, shoulders, arms, neck)
  • 60 sit ups (30 crunches, 30 twisting sit up (bent knees, touch elbow to opposite knee)
  • 50 Push-ups (10 each: regular, circle grip, wide arms, pike position, regular)
  • 20 side crunches each side (lie on hip, legs bent arms across chest)
  • 30 Back crunches (Extended down on stomach, hands under chin, shoulders back)
  • Warm down with 10 minutes of stretching

Youth Trampoline Camp

Please arrive well rested and in good physical condition! We suggest a fitness program that includes aerobic activity (bike, run, or swim), and a 50 push-up / 100 sit-up routine on a regular basis.

The Path to Mastery in Sports

Not to scare you, but the widely accepted Outliers principle for success in any activity, not just sports, calls for 10,000 hours of learning and practice. Assuming Freestyle America athletes are seeking a mastery of sorts, let’s do a bit of math.

A 10 year old would like to be a masterful half pipe skier, determined to make the 2022 Olympics. The 10 year old, having just finished War and Peace reads Outliers and plans out her 10,000 hours. Well, over 10 years that’s 1,000 hours of training per year or fifty 40 hour weeks per year, Yikes! Sounds like a full time job. Better line up a few sponsors, and Mom and Dad better be sick at home-schooling, or better yet, high tail off to a ski academy at the age of 10! Isn’t math fun!
