Strength & Conditioning
The mission of the Morristown-Beard School Strength and Conditioning program is to provide each student athlete with an opportunity to achieve their physical potential in the safest, most efficient manner possible.
Our training philosophy is centered on safe, efficient, and effective exercise programs tailored to meet each athlete’s individual needs. A certified Strength and Conditioning coach supervises each athlete, and workouts are monitored and recorded to track progress. Regardless of the sport being played or the athlete’s goals, we promote hard work, consistency and self-improvement.

Over 20 different pieces of strength equipment from industry leaders such as Cybex, Atlantis, Magnus, and Nautilus. In addition, there is a free-weight area, which includes power racks, dumbbells, kettle bells, an assortment of barbells, and functional training equipment, which allows for endless exercise choices.
An area is set for warm-up and cool-down exercise. This area also includes medicine balls, stability balls, and balance discs to work on abdominal and lower-back strength. Our coaching staff is well-versed in the trends of the fitness industry and continuously updates the program to meet the growing needs of the student athletes, either by developing new exercise programs, or by adding new pieces of exercise equipment.
The exercises chosen by our Strength and Conditioning coach are geared around stabilizing the joints most often injured during athletes. Unfortunately, injuries do happen. If an athlete becomes injured, it is important to report your injury to our certified Athletic Trainer, who is qualified to evaluate and treat athletic injuries. He/she will determine whether an athlete requires additional medical treatment from a physician. Once the doctor clears an athlete, our Athletic Trainer will work closely with our Strength and Conditioning coach to help rehabilitate and strengthen the injured area to avoid further injury.
