Perseverance Strength and Conditioning

Student and trainer work together in the gym
Perseverance Strength and Conditioning (PSC) works with The Pennington School to help equip students to face, fight, and persevere through challenges, both on and off the field.

The PSC program starts in the weight room, where coaches use exercise to teach students that growth is rarely comfortable—and the only way to get stronger is to learn how to push through the discomfort. Ultimately, their goal is to build character and discipline in our students, which transcends the walls of the gym and permeates their everyday lives.

The entire School community, parents included, has full-time access to PSC’s team of certified strength coaches. PSC provides daily supervision of the weight rooms as well as the design and implementation of customized strength, conditioning, and physical education programs.

There are several ways to get involved with Perseverance Strength and Conditioning. On a complementary level, students have access to the PSC team through Pennington-sponsored activities, such as team strength and conditioning, physical education classes, and the after-school intramural fitness program. On a professional level, students can work with a PSC coach one-on-one to pursue individual goals and to fulfill their athletic activity credit for a given trimester.
