Epic Obstacle 55 minutes                                                                                                                
This class is our Kids Skills Basics class with an integration of climbing on our bouldering wall and a fun filled NINJA style obstacle course, which will challenge core stability, mobility and strength.


Class begins with our La Sierra Warmup, which involves dynamic stretches, push ups and ballistic movement to properly warm up the body. The participants are then put through our gymnastic holds, a challenging obstacle course, and climbing on our bouldering wall.


Bouldering is rock climbing stripped down to its raw essentials. Your challenge is to climb short, but tricky bouldering "problems" (a route, or sequence of moves) using balance, technique, strength, and your brain.
*This class does not include the amount of climbing that you can get in a one on one session.

Teen Strength (boys only) 60 minutes

This class is specific for boys, ages 13 and up, that are interested in getting stronger, and want to learn proper lifting technique.

Too many times, boys enter middle school and high school and are introduced to the weight room and have no idea how to lift. This scenario is a perfect storm for injuries.

Grassroots aims to teach teens proper technique and programming, when it comes to working out in a weight room, at school, at the gym or when they go off to college!

Tween Strength (boys only) 60 minutes

This tween strength class is specifically designed for tween boys in the 10 - 12 age group. 

This class was created to give pre - teen boys a supportive environment to get stronger and improve their agility, endurance, and overall strength using mostly body weight exercises and drills.

The coach will guide the boys through programming that teaches them how to properly workout and become more confident.

Tween Strength (girls only) 60 minutes

This class was created (similar to our women's only class) to give teenage girls a supportive environment to get stronger in.

Strength is something that is both physical and mental, and teens tend to judge themselves when it comes their body. Surrounded by other females, the coach will guide the girls through programming that will work to improve their agility, endurance, and overall strength using mostly body weight exercises and drills and partner work. The girls will learn how to properly workout and how to support each other as strong girls becoming strong women. .

Parkour "Pre-Team"

This class is invitation based and for kids who are interested in moving up to our "Team" and or who are not yet ready to join the team level.

Parkour is a discipline and form of movement that uses the principal patterns of movement. Running, Crawling, Climbing, Vaulting, Jumping and Landing are all things we as humans are inclined to do. Parkour allows people to take full advantage of their surroundings and repurpose public spaces to train and move in ways that liberate the mind and body.

Classes start with a basic warm up and involve dynamic stretches and mobility drills to increase range of motion for our jumping and landing sequences. After the warmup, we go into our conditioning and strength portion where we work on different methods of support holds and calisthenics, ending with plyometrics and a review of the landing continuum. Class will break down into stations where they will practice parkour techniques individually. The multiple stations will then be added into one large course and the children will apply the methods they worked on in smaller groups. Classes also involve games and teamwork to emphasize community and working together. Children will learn to overcome physical obstacles together and thru doing this they will have an easier time believing in themselves when faced with everyday situations.

This class is invitation based and for kids who are interested in taking parkour to the next level. The focus of this class is to get kids competition ready. While competitions are few and far between for this developing sport. We will be trying to enter our kids into some parkour events during the semester.

The most fertile minds and bodies to create lasting positive change is through our children. The goal in physically training any child under the age of 12 years old is to develop sound motor skills and optimal movement coordination. Competitive and non-competitive drill scenarios help train the body and mind to tap into peak performance. Beyond the strength gains, Grass Roots Fitness Project requires the format to be fun in order to create lasting success and interest in staying healthy and strong for years to come.
