How Long Have You Been Training at PSP34.5 years

Favorite Movement/Lift: Deadlift

Favorite Part of Training at PSP3Getting to workout side-by-side and make friends with athletes that play different sports.  Oh and the gainz.

Advice to Other Athletes: “Staying positive is huge.  When things get tough, remember to stay positive and keep in mind that you’re playing your favorite sport and it should be fun.”

“What a transformation that Luc has made in his time with us.  Luc was one of our first athletes, our first ice hockey athlete.  He came in the door with little weight room experience though had big dreams of hockey beyond the high school ranks.  Luc dug in and worked his tail off for those 4+ years and I could not be more proud of where he is today.  Him and his parents trusted in us to get him prepared physically for the rigors of ice hockey and stuck with our process of long term athletic development.  It is due to that that Luc has stayed healthy throughout his high school career as well as his continually growth/development.  I know that he will be a force on the ice and in the weight room for the Cyclones this fall/winter and I look forward to watching him via the Internet!  Best of luck Luc, we might have to have a staff winter trip up to NH!”

How Long Have You Been Training at PSP31 year

Favorite Movement/Lift: Deadlift

Favorite Part of Training at PSP3The atmosphere created by the coaches and athletes, as well as the workouts themselves

Advice to Other Athletes: “Don’t be afraid to give it all you got and just go for it.”

“As quirky as they come, Alexis is always good for a great laugh!  She is constantly smiling and enjoying the simple things in life.  But don’t let her joyfulness fool you as she is a very fierce competitor.  She knows what it takes to be a great runner and has worked very hard to become one.  As a member of the BVNW XC/T&F teams she has been there leading by example day-in and day-out.  Alexis constantly pushes herself to try new things as she did this year in trying the 300m hurdles.  Going in to the challenge with a positive mindset and can-do attitude she honed her craft and got herself all the way to the State meet.  It is this intrinsic drive to continually push herself that will help her succeed in life.  We are excited to see what the next chapter holds as heads to the University of Central Missouri, and we wish her the best of luck!”

Senior Spotlight 2017: Noah Janofsky

We are proud of all of the hard work of each one of our seniors! Learn more about them below:

 

Senior 2017: Noah Janofsky

 

Janofsky, N Senior 2017

 

Stats: 5’9″/170lbs

Year in School/School: Richmond Generals (Blue Valley High School)

Sports Played: Ice Hockey

Favorite All Time Athlete(s): P.K. Subban

Sports Goal: To play collegiate hockey

Most Memorable Sports Experience: Winning a State/League Championship my junior year with the Kansas City Jets.  We had such a great team and I was fortunate enough to score the only two goals in the championship game while playing with some of my best friends from over the years

How Long Have You Been Training at PSP34.5 years

Favorite Movement/Lift: Deadlift

Favorite Part of Training at PSP3I love the competition that is in the air every day.  Everyone is pushing everybody else in the gym to work their hardest and to be their best

Advice to Other Athletes: “Be proactive and don’t get complacent.  It took getting cut to make a significant change in my life that I wish I would’ve made years before.”

“As one of our hockey guys Noah has a mentally tough attitude that allows him to grind through the pain during grueling workouts which has helped him reach his goal of playing hockey at the next level.  He wasn’t always this way though.  Noah made a major change in his attitude and effort after his first year with us and it has paid off immensely.  When he first started with us there was reluctance, uncertainty and poor eating habits that slowed his development down.  Since he decided to burn the boat and be all in he has made an amazing transformation into a legitimate force on the ice.  We could not be prouder of who Noah has become not only as an athlete but as a young man.  We are excited to see what he does in the future!”

Favorite Part of Training at PSP3The family atmosphere

Advice to Other Athletes: “Always give it your all, never settle for anything other than your best effort.”

“I got the pleasure of meeting Carson when we started our baseball team training at Blue Valley West this past winter.  I cannot say enough about Carson’s tenacity to be his very best at everything that he does.  With no aspirations to play college baseball one would think that Carson would cruise through his senior year but that was far from the truth.  Carson set a high goal for himself, to be the best pitcher in a dominate conference and he came in every day working to be that guy.  I know that same mindset will carry over into college and beyond as Carson has chosen to attend the University of Missouri to further his education.  We wish Carson the best and look forward to following his journey!”
