Ryan Guenther provided our week's program about the Faribault Summer Strength and Conditioning program. Faribault Public Schools built the strength training program in 2014 to increase diversity and athletic participation in Faribault public schools while increasing each athlete's skills in all sports.
 
The program looks to foster good mechanics and a healthy, safe environment for 6th to 12th-grade students. The program has grown from roughly 50 students in 2014 to 100 students in 2019 to 240 students in 2021. Some of the program's success of growth is due to access to the program free of enrollment fees as they were free in 2021 & upcoming in 2022 from government funding through the STEAM grants.
 
 Ryan stressed the return of strength training in all sports across the board regarding winning and success "It makes our athletes stronger, faster, more confident earlier." Ryan expressed. The program prides itself on looking like the community and embraces diversity through a positive atmosphere. Challenging students to better themselves through teamwork. If you are a student in need of a good summer program this year, please get in touch with Ryan.
