The back of one of my favorite team t-shirts says, “Cheerleading…not just a sport, a lifestyle”. It’s probably the most accurate sentence about cheerleading I’ve ever come across. Cheerleading originates in collective spirit and passion demonstrated by an ever-changing, heterogeneous group of people who gathered around sporting events. (more…)

MY #1 EXERCISE SECRET
(…and it’s exactly what I do for working out)
“What do you do for exercise?”
This is a question I get ALL the time! And since we’ve since we’re feeling good and ready to head into our new season feeling strong, I wanted to share what I do for exercise and how you too can get on the fitness bandwagon!
Parent’s I get it, you want your cheerleader to be on the best team, and cheerleaders, you want to be on the team with the highest skills. Remember, you have to work toward each skill and goal in order to be the best for yourself and your team, that means what ever team you happen to be placed on. Let’s talk about some tips for overcoming some physical and mental blocks.
To be successful you have to put 95% of your focus into the mental part of the sport along with the 5% of physical portion. It is so important to stay focused on the skill at hand you are working on. Keep your head in the game, and don’t be distracted by other things going on around you.
DON’T JUMP AHEAD
So many times I have seen cheerleaders lose focus on the mental part of this sport, simply because they aren’t living and focusing in the moment, they are jumping ahead and that could potentially be grounds for failure. You want to put your energy in the moment and what you are placing your emphasis on at that time.
REMEMBER TO BELIEVE
One of the most important things I always tell the girls on the team, is “You have to believe in yourself, you have to know you can do it in your mind and in your heart.” It’s one thing to physically be working on the skills, it’s another thing to have that self-doubt putting that fear into yourself. You need to have to the self-confidence in yourself to know that you CAN do what you are working at.
Don’t forget to join the CHEERFIT Movement with your cheerleader and discover that you can also be #CHEERFITSTRONG.

CAN YOU SHARE WITH US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR JOURNEY AND HOW YOU GOT TO WHERE YOU ARE TODAY?
We returned home 12 hours after Hurricane Harvey tore my town apart. There was no water, no power, no cell service and no home to come back to. We were blessed enough to have friends in town to stay with. As soon as we returned, we helped. I picked up shingles torn from roofs and dragged tree limbs to the street. At noon and 6pm, I’d go to the local shopping center and help hand out warm meals to the community. I learned that no one is too small to help. I also learned that we should always be willing to help and never afraid to ask for help.
I learned that no one is too small to help.

I have always been a big dreamer! How about you? Do you ever daydream or do you ever think about your dreams and aspirations?
Dreaming big is really where it all starts! When you listen to your dreams, really listen to them, you become better connected to who you are and what you want. You find what makes you happy! Connecting with that inner part of you, that very special place in your heart that knows you best, and listening to your dreams helps you discover who you are.
Listening to your dreams gives you the freedom to know and become who you are meant to be!
Having a sense of who you TRULY are and expressing the real you helps you gain confidence and that leads to great things! Leaders are confident. Change makers are confident. People who step out of the box and create good are confident.
All of this leads me to this…
Always believe in yourself and in your dreams; in being true to yourself and expressing who you truly are, you gain confidence… and confident girls create positive change in the world!
So, go ahead and DREAM BIG! The sky is not the limit for you, beautiful girl! Believe in YOUR dreams because they will never steer you wrong.
