Functional Strength Training for Physical Education

Several years ago, Next Level owner Nate VanKouwenberg created a comprehensive staff development workshop called Functional Strength Training for PE to improve the quality of fitness units and HS strength and conditioning programs.

As a Physical Education teacher and strength and conditioning coordinator in the Victor Central School District, Nate used his experience developing Victor’s K-12 Functional Strength Training curriculum to create this workshop.  Over the years, Nate and his Next Level staff have presented at countless conferences and school districts to help teachers and coaches improve the quality of their programs.

His book, Functional Strength Training for Physical Education, was published by Human Kinetics and set for release in April of 2024.
