WeTrain Takes Over Practice

DSC05494

WeTrain takes over practice to give our athletes an edge for future competition. WeTrain brought their high energy and love for working out to shake up our athlete’s basketball practice on Wednesday, March 9th. WeTrain, an on-demand personal training company, split our athletes into two groups to give our athletes a more personalized workout session. While one group worked on their basketball skills, the other group rotated through stations to shake up their routine workout and learn new exercises and after our athletes completed the rotation, the groups switched.

WeTrain took their most popular workout categories and made them into stations for our athetes and in each station, our athletes each got personal attention to ensure they were doing each exercise with the proper form. At the end of each group’s circit- WeTrain tested our athletes’ speed by playing Sharks and Minnows and at the very end of the night, both group came together to play Knock Out – with an impromptu dance party happening as athletes and trainers alike waited to knockout each other!
