Our resident athletic trainer, Billy Locke, has been teaching our ShapeUp students the fundamentals of fitness in his physical activity workshops. With over 16 years of training experience under his belt, Billy knows how to motivate and challenge our students to reach their full potential.
At Belmont High School last week, Billy led the students through ladder drills that focused on improving coordination, core strength, and flexibility. At Monroe High, he talked about the importance of aiming for both strength and flexibility, emphasizing that "those are the best athletes: the strongest and most flexible."
At the end of the workshop at Monroe, Billy gathered all the students together in a circle with their hands in the center to shout out their common goal: "Fit for life!" Check out the videos below to see Billy's exercises for staying fit for life.
