     “Coach Marty Mills is a very valuable mentor for me as a strength coach. His system of developing functional athletes is second to none. The time that I have spent observing and talking with Coach Mills regarding all areas of strength training have helped me to develop a coaching philosophy that brings out the most in ALL athletes. The success of the teams and individuals at Center Grove High School are directly related to the hard work and dedication of Coach Mills. In my opinion, he has set a very high bar for strength coaches in the state of Indiana to achieve. His passion and work ethic inspires me to work hard every day in this field.”

Is resistance training for youth safe and effective???

One of the unfortunate myths regarding the training of young athletes is the notion that resistance training is either unsafe or unhealthy for younger adolescent and pre-adolescent athletes.  Studies show that young athletes who participate in a regular, well-supervised strength training program generally experience fewer and less severe injuries on the field than athletes who train improperly or not at all.

P.E. and Youth Athletic Development for Homeschool and Virtual Learning Students

FALL PROGRAM (10/27-12/22), 2 Days a week, 60 minutes

Who: Home School Students and Students doing Virtual Learning.  Grades 6 and up.
What: AGE APPROPRIATE resistance training, speed and agility training, fun & games!
When: Tuesday and Thursday 11am-noon. 
Where: School of Strength, 1480 Olive Branch Parke Ln.. Ste 100, Greenwood, IN  46143
Why: The lack of movement, free play, and physical education has become an absolute epidemic amongst our youth today. Not only are childhood obesity rates skyrocketing, kids are also losing the ability to perform very basic and necessary movement skills such as skipping, jumping, crawling, etc.

Our youth development programs are centered around giving kids the opportunity to perform these essential movement skills and develop critical foundational strength and self confidence that will set them up for success for years to come. They will also have the opportunity to learn important life lessons that the weight room and training offers such as work ethic, consistency, ……. while learning the importance of  but having fun at the same time! 

Grant "Rufus" Gardis

Coach Grant Gardis will be running this program.  I've known Coach Gardis many years, he's one of a kind!  He is retired and is now working at THE School of Strength.  Coach Gardis is one of the leading authorities in the country on Long Term Athletic Development.    

Here's a written interview he did a few years back:

CrossFit with Kettlebells???

I would really love to teach adults how to do CrossFit workouts without Barbell Olympic lifting, running or jumping.

I’m a certified USAW Weightlifting Coach. I’ve been teaching the Olympic lifts to athletes for 20 years! That being said, you do not have to do barbell lifts to do CrossFit, especially if you are an adult.  

High rep training of Olympic movements is safer and more effective with Kettlebells than with barbells.  

CrossFit with Kettlebells is more “joint friendly.” Kettlebell lifting, when taught correctly, strengthens muscles and bones and is easy on the joints.

Kettlebells provide an amazing cardio workout that build strength! My best cardio workouts never involve running, jumping, or Olympic lifting.

This method would be unique in the CrossFit community in that all the WOD’s (Workout of the Day) would be done primarily with Russian Kettlebells.


We program movements, not muscle groups.  Every workout has strength, cardio, core and conditioning with common sense programming.  We do appropriate lifts, appropriate reps, appropriate sets, appropriate rest breaks with appropriate loads.  

We do the following whole body movement patterns every week, and they can be done with Kettlebells or Barbells!

-Upper Body Push Pattern
-Upper Body Pull Pattern
-Squat Pattern
-Hip Hinge
-Whole body explosive exercises (swings, snatch, clean, etc...)
-Loaded Carries/Sleds
-Single leg movements
-Iso Core (ab wheel, planks, etc...)

Since our Kettlebell-Based program focuses on big human movements, these workouts are for every age group and fitness level!  EVERYONE can do CrossFit workouts the way we teach it at THE School of Strength.  Give it a try, I promise you will not be disappointed :)
