Busy Schedule? Here’s how to Stay Organized!

Busy Schedule? Here’s how to Stay Organized!

Now let’s face it… EVERY Cheer Parent is truly a SUPER HERO!

Whether it’s getting kids to cheer practice, school, or competitions… these schedules can get pretty CRAZY!

Luckily we have some AMAZING TIPS on how to STAY ORGANIZED and be able to GET EVERYTHING DONE!

1.  START TO SCHEDULE EVERYTHING!

I rely heavily on my phone and calendar to get everything straight. I am one of those moms that will completely forget that I have to do anything that day until it is time to go. I make sure everything is always set in my phone as soon as I find out about it, then I write it on the calendar in the kitchen at home so she can check it as well. The calendar in my phone is also color coordinated. Each event has its own color, whether it is Cheer, archery, doctor appointment, or her dad’s weekend. For archery tournaments and practice I also use my calendar and phone!

STAYING ORGANIZED IS KEY! WHETHER IT’S YOUR PHONE, PLANNER, OR STICKY NOTES; STAYING TRUE TO YOUR SCHEDULE WILL HELP YOU THROUGH YOUR DAY! : )

2.  FORGETFUL? USE ALARMS!

My daughter has a phone with an alarm that will go off forty-five minutes prior to cheer practice. This allows her to know when to get ready! I have another alarm that will go off fifteen minutes from when we need to leave. With all these alarms we are able to get through the day right on schedule. I can also get her one year-old brother and his bag ready before we head out.

ALARMS CAN BE YOUR BEST FRIEND AND LIFE SAVER!

3.  KEEP YOUR AREA ORGANIZED

We have specific places for EVERYTHING!

Practices and competitions require LOTS of specific items and sometimes it can get a little hard to keep track of everything! But we were able to find the PERFECT SOLUTION!

  1. Bows
  2. Practice Shirts
  3. Practice Uniforms
  4. Cheer Shoes
  5. Competition Uniform
  6. Team Cheer Bag
  7. Water Bottle
  8. Extra Accessories


WE WERE ABLE TO ORGANIZE ALL THE ITEMS IN HER CLOSET RIGHT BEFORE WE START OUR DAY!

Before we go we always double check all our bags the night before before we go to competitions, also the morning of JUST IN CASE!

I am a mother of two amazing kids. One is a 9 year old, crazy, cheer kid, the other just turned one and never sits still. I was a truck driver for 10 years and now I drive a school bus. My daughter has been in cheer for 5 years and we have been working out together since she was five years old. CheerFit lets us continue to work out together while home with her baby brother.

Overcome Injury with These 3 Tips

Overcome Injury with These 3 Tips

Transformations come in all types of ways! From advancing skills to overcoming injuries – there is no better feeling than the feeling of overcoming challenges and reaching your goals! Today we meet CHEERFIT Ambassador Camarie who has learned to stay motivated through injury and stay strong both mentally and physically. Camarie’s mom shares,

Camarie broke her arm January 18th during cheer practice, not one time has she missed practiced or complained she continued to go full out. She was fully released back to cheer the first week of March and is continuing to push for goals. Being a CHEERFIT Ambassador has helped her maintain her strength in other areas when she wasn’t able to use her arm. Once released the workouts helped her regain arm strength and pick up right where she left off! #cheerfitstrong.

After just getting released, Camarie is right back at it..tumbling and stunting like nothing ever happened!
Camarie’s transformation journey from overcoming injury to being cleared is a true reminder to us all that through determination and having the right attitude…anything is possible! 

We were so motivated by Camarie and her transformation journey that we checked in with her to ask if she could share some tips for staying MOTIVATED DURING INJURY!! And this is what she said…

The Top 5 Things to Know for Tryouts

The Top 5 Things to Know for Tryouts

MY TOP 5 TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL TRYOUT

With the craziness of competition season, it is easy to find yourself skimping on your daily workouts…

THAT ENDS NOW!

1. KEEP YOUR BODY IN TIP TOP SHAPE

As an athlete it is very important to keep your body in tip top shape all through out the year. So pump up the jams and get to work on your favorite workout. Some of my personal picks are the CHEERFIT Bootcamp DVD and the IG LIVE Tuesday Workout Parties on Instagram.

Anything that works for you personally to get you in the frame of mind to push a little harder is what you need!

2. TREAT YOUR BODY RIGHT!

Nutrition plays a big part in helping you feel energized. Fuel your body with fruits and veggies and hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! All of the extra workouts and practices take a toll on your body and in addition to exercising and eating right you should also make sure you get enough sleep.

Tryouts can be very stressful and your body needs its rest in order to perform your best!

3. CONFIDENCE IS KEY

Confidence plays a huge part in your success as a cheerleader. For me, this has been the biggest obstacle to overcome. I have been battling a mental block on and off for a little over a year now. I just couldn’t understand why my mind wasn’t allowing me to throw skills I had for years and was really hard on myself. I know now that I am often my own biggest enemy and the only person holding me back. Once I realized this I found it so much easier to relax and just do my thing. I am throwing my skills again, but I think some days will always be harder than others.

For anyone struggling through a mental block I just want to let you know that you’ve got this, once you believe in yourself the

SKY IS THE LIMIT!

4. ALWAYS GO THE EXTRA MILE

Show your coaches that you are putting in FULL EFFORT. If you are struggling with a specific skill this is especially important. It is important to regularly attend tumble class, but with tryouts approaching it’s never a bad idea to go to a few extra tumble classes, set up a few privates, or go to open gym. Most gyms also provide clinics before tryouts, these really help me out! They give you a feel of what your coaches are looking for and usually a run down of how tryout day will go and give you a chance to clean up your skills. I went to all of the clinics my gym offered last year and found that it helped ease my nerves before the big day.

When your coaches see that you are trying your very hardest to nail your skills they will be MORE willing to HELP YOU!

5. TRUST YOUR COACHES

Your coaches know what you are capable of. Trust them, even if you may not be placed on the team of your dreams. Our coaches always have our best interest at heart! There are a lot of different factors that go into making a successful team, not just tumbling and stunting skills. A coaches job is to give their team the best chance they can have at winning throughout the season and they will put you in a team that you WILL EXCEL ON!

How My Daughter Inspired Me to Get #CHEERFITSTRONG

How My Daughter Inspired Me to Get #CHEERFITSTRONG

Being motivated, having confidence within yourself and having someone else have confidence in you,
having the support and encouragement to try is what being #CHEERFITSTRONG is about.

“Hey Mom, Let’s work out!”

I see this in my daughter, Savannah, who has been an ambassador since July 2016. When she came
up to me one day and said “hey mom, let’s work out,” I admit I was a bit skeptical. Okay, I take that back,
I was rather hesitant. I am not in the best shape, would rather do a million things other than get my
“fitness” on, but I gave in. We started on out with stretching and watching the CHEERFIT Training DVD,
we did some walking everynight when it was nice out (we live in NY…it gets cold fast). We put on some
workout music and do our workout routine. Savannah is 10 and she is keeping a log of my progress
now.

When you have someone else to help you along the way, it really makes this thing called a workout a lot
more fun. Trust me, as you get older it’s a lot harder than it seems to get motivated and find the energy
to put in the work. Cheerleaders certainly do know how to pump you up and encourage you to keep
going and push yourself. Plus it doesn’t hurt if that very cheerleader happens to be your daughter.

So get out there Cheer Moms! Join the CHEERFIT Movement with your cheerleader and discover that you can also be…
