Nebo School District provides professional development to educators in a variety of areas so students are receiving the latest 21st century instruction.
Last week, weight training and body conditioning teachers trained and taught by health and fitness industry experts. The purpose of weight training is to improve strength and performance, promote safety, reduce injury, build muscle and raise self-confidence.
Nebo’s own, Dr. Everett Kelepolo, Athletic Director, and Mr. John Allan, Health and Physical Education Specialist, have a vision to make sure Nebo educators are trained and certified to provide the best possible education for students.
Dr. Everett Kelepolo said, “Our intent is to help students increase their performance and to reduce injury. It is important to look at the welfare of students and protect them. This additional training and certification for teachers will provide more knowledge and help protect our students.”
Mr. David Shroshine of ASAP Training in Orem, Utah explained his training with athletes. He demonstrated warmups, functional evaluations and strength training.
Mr. John Peabody from IHC Physical Therapy in Spanish Fork, another expert, addressed how to use physical preparedness to prevent injuries. With the amount of time our current athletes are spending on sports, injury prevention is the key.
Congratulations to Gwen Reed for winning this week’s “Where Are We Wednesday?” challenge.
