As we approach 4 years of operation at CrossFit Strode Station, we are extremely
proud of how far we have come. The goal has always been to be more than a gym
but to facilitate health and wellness into our community. We wanted to become a
vehicle to help create a difference in Central Kentucky. We have been fortunate
to develop great community partnerships and a strong membership base to help
us drive that improvement.
CrossFit Strode Station is excited to announce a new venture – We will be partnering
with Clark County Public Schools to bring CrossFit to students enrolled at Phoenix
Academy! Beginning in January, the coaches of CrossFit Strode Station will begin
visiting adolescents at Phoenix Academy four days a week to work with up to
30 students during the Spring Semester. The partnership has been made possible
by funding provided by the Greater Clark Foundation of Winchester.Funding will allow
Clark County Public Schools and students of Phoenix Academy to purchase
equipment (such as medicine balls, jump ropes, sandbags, etc.), receive
Functional Movement Screens from KORT Physical Therapy, and get direct
services from our CrossFit coaches. Programming will target general physical
preparedness through direct training with our coaches, as well as social-emotional
functioning and interpersonal skills through opportunities for students to establish
relationships with positive community-based role-models and become leaders
within their peer groups. Through the course of this partnership, we hope to see
students improve their confidence, increase their self-efficacy, build resilience
and perseverance, enhance practical problem-solving skills, and improve
their overall health and well-being.
Stay tuned for updates as we begin working with students at Phoenix Academy!
