Strength and Conditioning Gym

Play the video to learn more about the Strength and Conditioning Gym at the AIS with Cameron Girdlestone.

After watching the video, take some time to discuss your thoughts around the following questions:

  • What does ‘conditioning’ mean when we talk about our health and fitness?
  • Which piece of equipment looks the most interesting to you? Why?
  • Can you make every muscle in your body stronger? Why? Why not?

Activity: Does being taller mean you are stronger? Investigate the relationship between height and upper body strength by designing a climbing activity with the equipment available around your school, and inviting everyone in your class to try it out. Who completed the activity the fastest? Who found it easy or hard? How could the people that found it harder improve their upper body strength?
