Our Youth Programs are inspired through the very best knowledge and resources that the world has to offer, but more importantly, they are specific to Youth training and ALWAYS at the forefront of that is “What is best for the kids”.
The Brand X Method weaves together foundational motor pattern training, the most advantageous elements of play, and targeted physical literacy enhancement within an individualized program design. Youth who stick with the program become competent, confident, and motivated to level up the enjoyment and performance of their current activities, dive into new things with the same verve, and meet new challenges head on. They move through their lives with freedom and fearlessness.
The magic of our method is that we leverage the existing capabilities of any and all youth in our care and help them discover and transcend their own limits. The medium in which this artistry occurs is physical literacy.
The Brand X Method defines physical literacy this way:
“The capacity to interact with the environment and is characterized by the physical competence, confidence, motivation, as well as knowledge and understanding, to pursue and master the broadest possible range of physical activities throughout a lifetime.”
Let’s break this down in a way that allows us to see how teaching primal movement skills such as hinging and squatting using The Brand X Method in a structured, typically predictable exercise environment increases the ability to take action in unpredictable contexts inside and outside the physical realm.

Our solution to tackling these issues is to deliver a world-class Youth program specifically designed from kids through to teens, underpinned by the expertise and professionalism of The Brand X Method.
