Athletic Training and Fitness

The Everest S.E.L.F. platform is unique in its ability to promote a lifelong love for fitness. Our athletic training and fitness program is deeply embedded in our philosophy that a strong body supports learning. From athletic training and personal fitness programs to our certified chef-cooked meals, Everest exudes a positive, healthy environment. Everest provides the best opportunities and resources for today’s students to put into practice the key principles for performance training and health and fitness.

Every Everest student takes part in our athletic training and fitness program regardless of what level they are pursuing one or more skills. As part of the regular curriculum, students are assessed and evaluated 3 times per year and provided with customize training to maximize their athletic development and fitness. Advanced sports science is applied in developing sophisticated systems for the best results.

Everest Strength and Conditioning

Everest student-athletes take part in our strength and conditioning program up to 5 times per week.  The program introduces the fundamentals of movement mechanics, recovery and regeneration, speed and agility, resistance/strength training, core stability, and explosiveness training.

We have a movement first philosophy and follow a LTAD (Long Term Athletic Development) for different ages.  Age specific functional strength and performance testing is performed three times per school year to track and monitor individual progress.  Testing results are also provided online through Everest EOLC for parents to access.
