Ready, Set, Gold!
The LA Y, in partnership with the Southern California Committee for the Olympic Games, are offering students and their families an opportunity to join Olympians and Paralympians in virtual workouts and mentoring.
Hear untold stories from the greatest athletes in the world, with each episode examining a pivotal moment that defined the athlete's career. Follow along every week with local athletes from different Los Angeles neighborhoods, learn different sports, and leave with a new social-emotional learning tool like growth mindset, goal setting, perseverance, and more.
"All of the workouts build on the foundation of small muscle groups required for sports performance. It is the small motions that can make a difference along with biomechanics that give an individual the platform for healing, wellness and performance."
