Weight Room

The newly renovated School Weight Room features equipment that will allow its students the opportunity to explore a large variety of exercises to promote a beneficial fitness level and maintain an active and healthy lifestyle. Whether the student wants to begin a diligent training regimen of lifting heavy weight, or if they just prefer to run the treadmill or use the bike, PWA’s students will receive a positive experience in the fitness weight room. 
 
Each and every student wanting to use the weight room facility MUST complete a registration form and obtain a PWA ID card in order to be granted access to the facility. The ID Card is available in the School’s Main Office.
 
General Exercise & Training Tips
o   Make sure your whole body is warm before doing intensive exercises.
o   Ensure you have the exercise technique memorized before increasing the lifting load.
o   Focus on being balanced and in control of your body when performing any exercise with or without weight – this leads to improved  
           stabilizing muscles as well as the primary and secondary muscle groups.
o   Know your limit!! Too much weight too soon leads to accidents and injured muscles/tendons and joints and may take a very long time   to recover.
o   Stretch at the conclusion of your workout – this will help with the rest and recovery aspect of training and allow for stronger benefits for the next workout session and to your body overall.
o   Bring a water bottle – stay hydrated.
o   When in doubt, ask the question. PWA is full of knowledgeable staff with backgrounds in Physical Education, Training and Sports.
   
Ask around for recommendations about what type of training regimen is best suited for you and your goals.
