Friday Reads and News Feeds- Take 1

T.G.I.F People!!!!! I know most of us still have to work (and I still have to work through tomorrow), but who cares! It’s Friday!!

Well for starters, I have been working with a very diligent and hard working young lady that goes by the name of (Kit) Oloffson. Coming out of 8th grade as a non-starter, she wanted to make her high school freshman volleyball team. NCHS has a good 60 girls or so, if not more,  that try out to make the team. Not being a starter at her previous school doesn’t give her the greatest of chances, but it gives her a chance none-the-less.

A great way to spend mother-daughter time (I know...they need to bring their butts down...it was mid-take I promise)

Even though we have only trained a couple times a month on average, the “homework” workouts and her conditioning from camps helped quite a bit.

*Note: Goes to show you don’t NEED to be in the gym ALL the time, you just need a plan of action and DO IT!*

The amount of improvement over the summer has proved to pay off. She new she belonged on the team, the coaches just had to see it or themselves. I’m a National Champion Powerlifting Coach, but I have to say that THIS coaching win has to be tops. To help a child achieve their dreams is priceless. ROCK ON, KAYLA!!!! 🙂

To add to the awesomeness, my training is going quite well. If you haven’t yet, you can follow my training progress here for the next 6-8 weeks or so before reaching the ultimate destination, the World Championships in Las Vegas!!!!

I’ve never been west of Mizzou so it’s an exciting time for me.

 

I love making random posts like these. I’ve always wanted to anyways to add a little more volume to my blogging as I need to write more (clearly).

So, I’d like to leave you now with some good reads for the week. Enjoy and have an awesome weekend. Peace and chicken grease!!!!
