Fitness Programs

Durham Academy’s fitness programs revolve around a commitment to the health, performance, wellness, accessibility and the individual needs of our students. Students have access to the weight room during their free periods, after school and over the summer where they are able to use exercise bikes, treadmills, ellipticals, a rowing machine and a diverse array of strength-training equipment.

The weight room is staffed by Coach Jordan Babwah, our full-time strength and conditioning coach and fitness director. Coach Babwah ensures the safety and proper development of our students by incorporating philosophies and techniques derived from the National Academy of Sports Medicine, the National Strength and Conditioning Association and the Exercise and Sports Science program at UNC-Chapel Hill.

In addition to working with our sports teams and PE classes, Coach Babwah designs programs tailored to helping individual students accomplish their own personal fitness goals.
