Balance Strong Fitness Series

Shawn Tegtmeier with Be Amazed Training and Dana Tress of Smith Balance+Concussion Center are collaborating to offer you a strength training series that focuses on all things balance!

This class combines the two and offers a 6-week fitness series focusing on the following topics:

*Balance in everyday movement

*Vision & proprioception

*Vestibular health

*Strength and resistance exercises

The next session runs January 6 - February 10 and meets weekly on Thursdays from 1-2pm.

Space is limited to 10 participants per class. Cost is $90 per participant for 6 classes.

Winter Middle School Running Camp

If it doesn't challenge you, it won't change you. - Fred DeVito


The Winter Middle School Running Program is designed to help get kids those base miles they need going into the Spring track & field season, while also building a STRONG runner! Strength & form will be a large part of our focus. Strong athletes run faster and farther! One day a week will be devoted to specially working on strength training.

The camp will meet at Smith Physical Therapy & Running Academy (110 W Woodstock St, Unit A, Crystal Lake, IL) on Mondays and Wednesdays from January 17th until February 23rd from 3:30pm-4:30pm. As long as the weather is over 20 degrees, we'll be running outside! In the event the weather doesn't cooperate, you'll be notified via email before camp starts, and we will stay indoors.

There's no better time than the present, so let's get to it!
