Spring Semester 2019

Hi everyone,
The semester 2 schedule will be up within the next week on the site and on the door.  We are just finalizing some of the afterschool supervisors at this time.  Here is some information that will help you start accessing the facility during semester 2 before things get fully underway.

Despite the initial date for opening being posted as February 11, our amazing supervision team has moved up the date and is able to offer access beginning on February 4, 2018.  Please make sure you take the time to thank them for taking time out of their busy lives to help students pursue fitness with as few interruptions possible.

Lunch hour access will resume on Monday February 4, 2019 as well, but will be closed on January 31 & Feb. 1.  Sorry for any inconvenience.

Those looking to learn more about lifting, training, performance and overall fitness/health are urged to register for the Sports Performance program offered in period 1 & 2.  This is not just an athlete course and will be undergoing a name change for next school year in order to accurately reflect the inclusiveness and community we promote.  The space and style of training is for anyone and everyone who is looking to advance themselves in the capacity they choose.

Good luck Judo athletes!



GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF OUR JUDO ATHLETES IN THE UPCOMING WEEKS!


Currently, we have a number of LCI Fitness trainees and Lethbridge RTC Judo Athletes who are off in Montreal right now, at a National Training Camp, as they peak for competition on January 12 - 13, 2019 at the Elite National Championships.  These individuals work their butts off day in and day out balancing school work, strength and conditioning and judo work every single day.  They are a dedicated crew and a pleasure to work with.  Good luck to you all and may strength be with you!

The day before Christmas break has value!

There seems to be a common misconception out there these days that valid things do not happen in schools the day before the Christmas break.  That it is a day full of fun and games and not truly a valid teaching/instructional day worth attending.  My classes and I would like to challenge that perception!  LCI Fitness Sports Performance classes crush it to the end with multiple individuals hitting PR's and finding there technique!  Displaying the Grit, Respect, Empathy, Responsibility and Growth required to show up and invest in themselves and the people around them to the bitter end.  So proud to be a part of this community and watch these young adults follow through on an unwritten pact we made with each other at the beginning of the semester.  Results never lie!


Another day of business as usual at the office


Combined LCI Fitness and The Athlete Project athlete showing you that it may be the last day but that just means it is time to hit some PR's!!

Making Corrections

Here at LCI Fitness we spend a lot of time working on developing the correct technique and movement in our participants.  Consistently performing correct mechanics is one of the driving forces behind our program and allows us to create success in a safe manner with all of our participants.  This is one of the young lifters involved in the program at LCI.  This young lady always works hard to make the best of every training session every day.  This video shows an unsuccessful movement and the successful movement that was created after going through some feedback and cues to make changes.  So cool to see young people killing it!
