A Note From Coach Mark

Happy New Year!

We hope everyone had a chance to spend quality time with family and friends during the holidays. (The coaching staff and I sure did.) Thanks to everyone who attended the Annual Cheer Bowling Party (photo above).

We are very excited for the second half of Season 10 and can't wait to get all of the athletes back into the swing of things. As a reminder, please call the front desk to schedule any tumbling make-up classes.

One of the most important ways to have a successful winter/spring is to keep our athletes healthy. Tumbling and/or allstar cheer progress is impossible without being healthy - individually or as a team. We appreciate your support and reinforcement at home to promote the importance of staying hydrated, eating healthy, proper hygiene, etc.

Looking back, 2018 was one of the BEST years Infinity has ever had!! We could never have imagined a year and a half after our move to Westlake we would be this strong. THANK YOU to each and every one of our athletes and families for helping us get here. Staying true to our approach and spreading the word to find athletes and families that share this approach is what made this happen. We are grateful and hope to continue to work together to maintain an environment where athletes can achieve their goals!

A Nutrition Tip from Wellness Babe...

Happy New Year! Almost everyone is using the turn of the calendar to set some new goals and abolish old habits. What are your New Year’s Resolutions? Can you remember how long you stuck with last year’s promises to yourself? What will be different about this year? How can we stick to our resolutions, for real this time?

Let’s start with the bad news: The best way to keep your New Year’s Resolutions is to put them in practice before the New Year. There’s nothing magical about a date on the calendar. If you wanted to start an exercise routine, you wouldn’t have waited until the New Year. That’s why a lot of us (80% by February, actually) are destined to fail. Don’t worry though, there are still some things you can do to stick with your 2019 New Year’s Resolutions:

1.) Be specific. Really specific. How much weight do you want to lose? And when do you want to accomplish that by? And by what means will you accomplish this? Instead of saying, “I will go to the gym everyday” you should say, “I will go to the gym at 7:00 am on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. I will do 20 minutes of cardio and 20 minutes of strength training. On Mondays, my strength training will focus on upper body. On Tuesdays…” Get the idea? Apply this to any new goals. If you want to do a better job of staying in touch with friends, set a schedule for when you’re going to call them, or be specific about when you want to email or send a text message. The more specific, the better.
2.) Have someone else to hold you accountable. It’s easy to make excuses when you’re the only one who knows about your resolutions. When you’re lying in bed and don’t want to get up to go to the gym, it’s easy to tell yourself you’ll try again tomorrow. But what if you had someone waiting at the gym for you? What if that person you’re trying to keep in touch with was waiting on the other end of the phone for you to call? Let someone know about your goals for this year. Ask them to hold you accountable, or set the goal with them.
3.) Be realistic. You’re not going to lose 50 lbs by next week. You’re not going to call that friend you want to keep in touch with every day. The goals you set need to obtainable and realistic. Start by setting your goal to make it to the gym three times this week, or to call your friend this weekend. Obtaining short term realistic goals will keep your momentum rolling though the dreaded month of February.
4.) Last, but probably most important is your mindset. Positive thinking is the only sure way to reach your goals for 2019. Your thoughts will manifest in your reality. So, if you think losing that extra weight is impossible, then it will certainly become impossible for you to accomplish. If you think you’re too tired, then tired you will become. Think thoughts of energy, love and success and those things will be yours in 2019.
You can do it!

Our first Nerf Night was a huge success. Stay tuned for more nerf fun in the near future.

Meet Our Seniors
Class of 2019
(Left to Right)
Katie Lester, Dana Paulick and Maddie Baughman

(We will feature Dana in February and Maddie in March.)
Katelyn Lester
(aka "Kevin" | "Katie")
Katie is currently a senior at Avon Lake High School, where she was a football cheerleader and on the cheer competition team that won the coveted Southwestern Conference "SWC" Championship this year!!

Katie has been an allstar cheerleader for 10 years! She has been at Infinity since her family moved here six years ago and prior to that she was at a gym called Gem City Jags in Dayton. Katie was a flier until 7th Grade so when Icon needed an extra flier for their pyramid earlier this season, she jumped up! If we count the one time she backed a prep in a pyramid, she's performed every cheer position. Katie is the personification of an Infinity athlete - a true team player to deliver whatever is best for the team!

She obtained her nickname "Kevin" because there were two Katie's in tumbling class which became confusing. Her original nickname was "Katie from Dayton" but when Kara shortened it to "KD" it sounded the exact same as Katie. Since KD are Kevin Durant's initials, Kara started to call her "Kevin" and it stuck.

Katie's favorite food is pasta; therefore, not surprisingly, a trip to Italy is on her bucket list. She has a twin sister and a brother who is a Freshman. They have two cats - Nippy and Midnight. Katie plans to study pre-med and hopes to attend Clemson University, The Ohio State University or University of Cincinnati in the fall.

One of Katie's favorite Infinity memories is when she made it to Finals at the 2016 D2 Summit. Here's hoping we can replace that memory with another trip to the Finals in 2019!
