Introducing a new and improved version of Personal Fitness!
Who is this program for?
This program is for students who are serious about their fitness, but prefer not to use barbells (or do not have regular access to such equipment). While “strength” will absolutely be worked on, the emphasis here is on movement, work capacity, and conditioning. Through the use of medicine balls, dumbbells, and kettlebells, students will complete daily workouts at varying weights, volumes, and intensities, keeping things fun and challenging. Personal Fitness is an advanced training program—with barbells removed from the equation.
The most notable updates found in this program are:
- Consistency Across Programs
Formatted to more closely match other PLT4M weight training programs, this program can be offered as an alternative to Personal Weight Training or any of the Athletic Weight Training programs.
- Simplified Workout Format
Video instruction has been condensed to provide a smoother workout experience. Students will also see suggested time domains per section to help with time management in their workout.
- Better Tracking
Consistent with other PLT4M fitness programs, we've included a series of fitness assessments in the first and last weeks of the program, thus providing another progress benchmark opportunity for students.
How to assign this program:
→ If you are currently following Personal Fitness, you don’t need to do anything—we’ve replaced the old program with the new workouts.
→ If you’re not currently following Personal Fitness, and would like to assign this program, we recommend giving your group access to the program.

The perfect program for students and athletes that are serious about their fitness, but don’t desire to throw around barbells or heavy weights every day (or do not have regular access to such equipment). While “strength” will absolutely be worked on, the emphasis here is on movement, work capacity, and conditioning.
Over the course of the program, athletes will work through a multitude of movement variations, from bodyweight to loaded MBs/DBs/KBs/etc, and do so with varying weight, volume, and intensity. Each day’s main “workout” will be unique, keeping things both fun and challenging, and helping all athletes to develop true all-around fitness and performance.
24 Total Training Sessions | 8 Weeks, 3 Sessions Scheduled Per Wee
Each workout is designed to take roughly 30-40 minutes
Each session contains a brief guided warm up, followed by targeted Mobility, Core, or Strength work. Next we dive into hyper specific movement prep so as to warm up directly for our Pillar Workout of the Day.
These "finishers" combine movements and fitness elements into varying time domains and formats, designed to constantly engage and motivate for the best results. Each will also come with the ability to log scores and times for tracking over time.
Grades 9 – 12 – Students who already have a complete fundamental fitness education, including weighted movement and baseline strength assessments (for weight prescriptions), and wish to continue the pursuit of holistic, lifelong fitness.
