Basketball Cycle with the Germantown Lady Panthers

I felt blessed to work with this amazing group of young athletes and show them how they can put in specific relevant work on the bike while giving their joints a break.  What an amazing experience and what a talented group of young female athletes.  I was shocked to see how many of these young girls already had ACL tears and they are still in High School!  We have to do a little better as porfessionals on educating not just the kids but the parents  about why cross-training is important for young athletes.

Launch Sport Performance -Sports Specific Cycling Sessions

Today we had the first actual RL52 Cycling sports specific session at Launch Sport Performance in Rockville, MD - Pre-Season Football Cycle! It was amazing to actually see football players on the bike in the cycling studio going through the sports specific sets, mimicing actual on-the-field work on the bike and listening to their feedback and reaction to this type of training.  Oh yeah and the bike moves from side to side - its not just your ordinary bike...but an amazing cross-training tool.
