The LHS Weight Training & Condition Room is Improving
PE teacher, Mike Gathright, has a desire to expand Lakeshore’s “weight room” into more of a fitness environment.
Gathright shared that “Adding cardio machines as we have through the LEF over the last five years has greatly enhanced our ability to serve more students. This year’s additions of adaptive machines expands the opportunity to students who are looking for a unique cardio workout, rehabbing an injury or have a physical limitation that might keep them from using a standard cardio machine.”
Gathright received a grant from the LEF to purchase two cardio machines; Precor AMT and an Octance Lateral Elliptical. Both are “adaptive” machines meaning that they can accommodate students of varying fitness levels as well as those with physical diverse-abilities.
Any student who has access to the Weight Training & Conditioning Room with a PE class or a coach after school has access to these machines.
