Cornwall - December 3, 2011 - Students from CCVS recently visited Caveman Strong to challenge themselves on a more physical level.

The group of roughly 20 students come from the Living and Learning classes as well as the Alternative Learning program. They went through basic squat mechanics, proper pushup technique and were introduced to the prowler which is a weighted sled.

Teacher Michelle Gauthier says "as a teacher it was great to see the students completely and totally engaged in what they were doing. They were not only learning but also having fun while doing so. Having them go to Caveman Strong means a lot the students' teachers as a gym membership is not something that many of our students could ever afford on their own. It made me very happy to see my students having so much fun and challenging themselves, on so many levels."

Gauthier says the kids were able to visit Caveman Strong thanks in part to the generosity and funding from Denis Thibeault and The Eastern Ontario Training Board. Gauthier adds school Principal, Robert Currier, has also been incredibly supportive of this initiative. The group is expected to visit the gym every couple of weeks.

Caveman Strong owner Tyler Touchette says "having the students in a learning the benefits of fitness at a young age will help as they get older. As the kids become stronger, their self-confidence grows as well and increases their involvement at school and socially."
