Elizabethtown, KY (PRWEB) March 13, 2013
Resistance band expert and trainer Dave Schmitz will be giving a presentation at the 5th Annual International Youth Conditioning Association Summit at the end of this week. Schmitz plans to attend the sessions this Friday and Saturday.
Held annually, the International Youth Conditioning Association Summit brings together experts in the fields of youth fitness and athletic development. It is scheduled for March 15th and 16th.
“I have been to the IYCA Summits before, and every time I walk away feeling like I learned new things about how to develop athletes from an early age,” says Schmitz. “Similarly, I hope that my teachings about the power of resistance band training show other trainers something new.”
Schmitz is no stranger to developing young athletes with workout bands. Since his time as a physical therapist nearly two decades ago, Schmitz has worked hard to spread awareness of the benefits of exercising with exercise bands.
Schmitz, like other trainers at the 5th Annual IYCA Summit, hopes to show that developing young athletes requires an acknowledgement of their unique developmental needs.
“I would never give a kid the same resistance band workout program I would give to an adult,” Schmitz says. “At the Summit, all of us hope to express to the audience that developing the athlete should always come before focusing on the outcomes of games.”
As he references, Schmitz will be appearing at the event alongside a slew of notable youth fitness specialists. Included on the speaker list for the 5th Annual IYCA Summit are Eric Cressey of Cressey Performance, Dr. Toby Brooks, and Mike Robertson.
