Strength and Conditioning Program
Cannon's Strength and Conditioning program focuses on four key areas: injury prevention, sports performance, self-confidence, and fitness for life. Our full-time strength and conditioning coach, Shawn Powell, as well as our assistant coach, Travis Webb, work with student-athletes on a daily basis. As a result, they have noticed an increase in performance and a significant decrease in non-contact injuries. In fact, injury treatments decreased more than 60% in the center’s first two years of use.
The Strength and Conditioning program offers movement sessions that focus on straight ahead speed (SAS) and lateral speed and agility (LSA), as well as strength sessions. Student Athletes advance in the movement and strength progressions on their own individual time frame. The goal is for every student athlete at Cannon to participate in the program. Cannon offers a summer program for all Cannon athletes regardless of what sport they play at no extra cost.; there is no need for our athletes to go to other private facilities to train.
The 4,100 square-foot Andrews Strength and Conditioning Center is a state-of-the-art center designed to enhance physical education of students in all grades—from junior kindergarteners learning coordination to varsity football players preparing for a Friday night game. The first floor includes eight fully-equipped strength stations featuring Legend Fitness racks with benches, 90 lb. PowerBlock dumbbells, and 6, 8 and 10 lb. medicine balls and bands. There are also sixteen 45-lb. lifting bars and four 25-lb. lifting bars, eight kettle bell handles, four sets of plyo boxes, and ten sets of Jungle Gym XT suspension trainers. The second floor features four spin cycles, two treadmills, and two rowing machines for rehabilitation, conditioning, and low-impact cardio work.
