Strength and Conditioning
Mount Paran Christian offers a comprehensive strength and conditioning program to enhance sports performance for all of our student-athletes.
Starting in middle school, athletes may participate in summer workouts included as part of their general athletic fee. Zero block strength and conditioning is offered to all high school athletes. Team conditioning and weight training is offered to all Eagle sports. Additionally, athletes may attend sessions after school Monday through Thursday.
Elite athletes don't rely on God-given talent alone. They put in relentless effort to pursue excellence in their craft. The MPC sports performance program takes strength and conditioning to the next level.
MPCS employs a full-time manager of sports performance. This role does not coach a team, but is fully dedicated to building and strengthening on both our male and female student-athletes. From curricular physical education to health and fitness, students learn how to train and care for their bodies. Athletic training consists of calisthenics, agility, weight-training, and proper nutrition. Additionaly, a certified trainer leads a team of sports med students who assist athletes with rehabilitation and game prep.
The strength program leads athletes in the annual Iron Eagle tradition of sports performance competition. The MPC Night of Champions allows football players who've developed their summer skills to participate in a strength competition and measure their progress.
