DETROIT – To prepare local athletes for the upcoming sports season, Henry Ford Hospital is hosting a sports conditioning program June 17-Aug. 19 that focuses on improving strength, speed, agility and flexibility.
Participants will train two days a week and can choose from two conditioning tracks – Mondays and Wednesdays or Tuesdays and Thursdays. Workouts are two hours and can be isolated to the upper or lower body. It is geared for athletes ages 12 to 24.
