Cadets take on Crossfit

Air Cadets from 902 Summerland took advantage of one of Summerland’s local physical fitness establishments this week.

Air Cadets from 902 Summerland took advantage of one of Summerland’s local physical fitness establishments this week.

Thanks to the generous donation from CrossFit South Okanagan, the cadets were given a one hour session with personal trainer Séan Cassidy.

Cassidy took the cadets through a range of body movements and gave some education on the importance of technique and mobility to lead an active and healthy lifestyle.

Towards the end of the session the cadets were then put through a workout of the day, or WOD for short. The workout had the cadets moving and working hard but at the end of it everyone was all smiles.

Physical fitness is one of the three aims of the air cadet program. The squadron staff are always searching new and fun ways to ensure the cadets stay active. CrossFit workouts incorporate elements from high-intensity interval training, Olympic weightlifting, plyometrics, powerlifting, and gymnastics. CrossFit, in addition to working out, is about teamwork and community.

902’s CrossFit session is just one of the fun and exciting activities the Squadron has planned for the 2014-2015 training year. 902 is now accepting applications for youth aged 12-18 to join air cadets. 902 parades regularly Wednesday evening from 6:15 to 9:30 p.m. at the Harold Simpson Memorial Youth Centre located at 9111 Peach Orchard Road in Summerland.
