Hey GymCat Fans!!!

I wish you could see what we’ve been up to in the gym lately. The team is already looking better this time around, and it’s only October! Thinking about how great we’ll be in three months is mind blowing. We all can’t wait to show everyone how much we’ve improved from last year.

Mandatory practices have begun, and the intensity in the gym, as well as in the weight room, has been ramped up. Even though we are all competing for a spot in the line-up, we are all doing it with the intentions of bettering the team. I really believe that this year is going to be something special, and I’m sure the entire team would agree that we have the opportunity to make a huge impact in Arizona Gymnastics.

The biggest goal for us this upcoming year is Nationals, and we won’t be giving up without a fight. The talent we have in the gym is incredible, and having such a talented team really motivates each of us to become the very best athlete we can be. Workouts in the weight room have also contributed a lot to preparing for the season. Our new weights coach, Rob Harris, is doing an excellent job at getting us stronger and into competition shape without irritating our bodies. His attitude in the weight room really pushes us to work hard and feel great about it after!

We’ve all been working extremely hard to prepare for the big teams we’ll be facing this year. I really believe, and I’m sure the rest of the team would agree, that this year is going to be something special. Get ready GymCat fans because we’re really going to bring it this season!
