StrongKid.com supplies resources to enhance the health, fitness and sport performance of children and teenagers. We do this by providing research-based information on youth strength training for educators, teachers, parents and fitness professionals. Guidelines by the American College of Sports Medicine, the National Strength and Conditioning Association and
the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology are helping us promote safe
and effective strength training practices to improve the health and
fitness of youth and teens.
StrongKid.com was founded by Dr. Avery Faigenbaum in 2001 to dispel the myths associated with youth strength training and provide reassurance that regular strength exercise can be safe, effective and enjoyable for boys and girls provided that age-appropriate training guidelines are followed.
As a pediatric exercise scientist with 20 years of experience working with children and adolescents, Dr. Faigenbaum shares his experience, knowledge and research about youth strength training on strongkid.com.
