Caring for the Body…

Website_2016_New_Group.184155241_stdThe positive effects of physical activity and exercise on the mind are well documented. At Muir Wood, we believe that fundamentally changing attitudes and behaviors in teens should involve changes to physical routines. To that end, all of the boys residing at Muir Wood are offered the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of physical exercise at The Ultimate Proving Ground Gym in Petaluma.

The Ultimate Proving Ground offers personal, buddy, and small group training in traditional mixed martial arts, football, lacrosse, basketball, soccer, volleyball, track, boxing, wrestling and strength & conditioning. The gym also offers human powered cardio equipment and three complete strength & conditioning areas. The boys are accompanied and supervised by a Muir Wood therapist during gym visits.
