Great California ShakeOut

Today at 9:48 AM Crespi Carmelite is participating in the annual Great California ShakeOut earthquake drill.  All student and school employees will be going over their designated roles and procedures to recreate an actual emergency situation. 
You are only receiving an email regarding this drill at this time, due to the current vetting of emergency notification systems.  When we have selected one in the very near future, you will begin receiving phone blasts from the school.  Until that time, please keep checking emails as well as the school website and as always Crespi Connect and our new Crespi App. 
Thank you.

The Strength & Conditioning program at Crespi Carmelite High School serves all 13 athletic programs through strength & conditioning courses and before and after school programs. The Student Wellness program serves the entire student body including faculty and staff. In conjunction with the counseling department, we look to foster the development of the mind, body and soul.

Strength & Conditioning

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide research-based training that builds the “complete” student-athlete capable of competing in sports at the highest level and to help our student-athletes learn discipline, teamwork, and responsibility while developing confidence and a strong work ethic. 

Our training programs are designed to develop both physical and mental toughness with the overall goals of performance enhancement & injury prevention. Crespi Carmelite High School student-athletes and the strength and conditioning staff have very high expectations. Much of what is done in the weight room is designed to seamlessly integrate with the mission of the school while striving for athletic excellence. 

Training Objectives

Training Philosophy

We will perform a variety of exercises and increase resistance levels progressively. Some of the variety in our training includes performing Olympic lift variations, plyometrics, powerlifting, body weight training and medicine ball circuits. Most people understand the value in enhancing strength, power and speed, but not many understand mobility and stability. Joint stability is the foundation for developing strong muscles that surround a joint which helps prevents injury and enhance performance. Joint mobility is the foundation for developing efficient movement, which also helps prevent injury and enhance performance. Therefore, joint stability and mobility will be a daily training focus. 

Student Wellness

Mission of Wellness

Students, staff and families across the country face increasing health risks that can affect their wellness and ultimately their quality of life and life span. At Crespi Carmelite High School, we recognize the critical relationship between student health and student achievement in academics and athletics. We are committed to empowering students, staff, parents and our community with the education and the environment that supports a healthy, productive life. Our mission is to incorporate activities and events into the school curriculum that will enhance learning, encourage healthy lifestyles, build camaraderie, and provide support and motivation for the Crespi community.

Crespi Carmelite High School seeks to promote wellness by supporting the following six components of the total learning environment: nutrition, regular physical activity, social, emotional, behavioral and spiritual health. Short and long-term benefits of our wellness program include fostering the overall development of the mind, body and spirit, improved student attendance, improved academic performance, improved athletic performance, motivation to become better self-managers of healthy lifestyle choices, develop and practice strategies to better cope with social/emotional stress and empowering life-long adoption of healthy behaviors.
In the area of proper nutrition, studies show that there is a link between nutrition and cognitive and physical functioning. In addition, many of the leading causes of death in the United States such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, obesity, hypertension, and cancer have a nutrition-related component.
Recently, we have reviewed our school food and beverage offering with students, staff and parents and have taken further steps toward the goal of improving the quality of nutrition on campus. Below are several helpful links to help educate and improve nutrition choices.
