Fitness Program

Girls working out in Martin CenterAfter school group fitness classes are offered in the Martin Center for those Upper School students not partaking in a season of sports. Classes are offered during every sport season each day after school. Students looking to earn a credit during that season must complete the class requirements of 3 classes per week for the duration of the season. The goal of fitness classes is to empower the students to feel confident in the weight room all while learning new and exciting ways to stay healthy. 

In-season team lifts are coordinated with coaches each week and provide sport-specific workouts for each team. The goal of in-season team lifts is to reduce the risk of injury and improve sports performance.


All fitness classes and team lifts are run by our strength and conditioning coach and Fitness Coordinator, Emily Sargent.
