Program Description

Our Caveman Strong Kids program is designed to take the beauty and function of exercise and adapt it to the child’s unique and constant changing needs.

Our mission is very simple: to help children understand the definition of health and fitness by pairing exercise and fun so that they can build habits to last a lifetime. While fun and games are important, our main focus is movement, strength and conditioning. Caveman Strong Kids works at getting kids stronger and healthier by incorporating modalities of gymnastics, bodyweight movements, and weightlifting. Gymnastics will help the children with strength and mobility and vestibular strength, weightlifting will aid in bone density, strength and self-confidence.

We introduce fitness and health to your child by running, jumping hoping and skipping, tumbling and simply having fun. We always start the class with a simple warm up we then practice a skill, do a workout around 5 mins (with no weight barring exercise) and we always conclude with an interactive game.

Program Approximate Cost: 

The fee for the kids program will be 80.00$ (2 Month membership) per child if the parent is a member

Funding Sources: 

For programs outside the gym ( in schools or for community organizations ) funding is available.

Strategies For Sustainability: 

At Caveman Strong we are not an affiliate of any program. We are not a normal gym either. We are mix of many modalities that encompass only the best of each method. What you get when you buy a membership off of us is a membership to unlimited personal training or as we would call it – COACHING. The caveman way is all about natural foods to help achieve better health and the perfect physique.The staff at Caveman Strong refer to themselves as strength coaches but I see them as much more. They are teachers, mentors and role models.

Impact Of Program: 

From what used to be a small community gym has now transformed to a large community gym with new programs and a new location.With over 200 members, a strong kids program, team training, an Olympic Lifting club, community outreach programs and a facility on Cornwall Island – Caveman Strong is one the premier athletic training locations in all of Ontario.Caveman Strong now offers the biggest kids' fitness programs offered in the community, serving about 100 children according to Touchette.
