We are bringing back the Athlete of the Month award at Yoga Athletex for 2019! We want to use this platform to showcase our amazing members who put in so much personal work at our studio. We may be biased, but we have some of the greatest athletes training at Yoga Athletex and we want you to know about them. Some of these members are youth athletes working towards athletic & academic scholarships, some are former college athletes, trying to stay in shape and maintain their active lifestyle while transitioning to the working world, and some are adult athletes that are competing in marathons, triathletes or just wanting to move well, and move often. We love every single one of our members and want to take the time each month to stop and recognize their accomplishments and hard work. First on deck for 2019 is… Logan Lednicky.
For January, we nominated Logan Lednicky who is more than deserving of this! She is a volleyball athlete and has been training at Yoga Athletex since the beginning of 2018. We have been able to watch her grow as a young lady and watch her grow as an athlete & it has been very heart warming. We’ve had the privilege of getting to watch Logan play volleyball in her high school playoff game this past season, where she was a freshman starting on the varsity team! She comes to Yoga Athletex to train like the competitive athlete she is, with lots of determination, and we have seen the payoff. We love watching her better herself through not only jump training classes, but also restorative yoga & mobility classes. We asked Logan some questions, and wanted to share them with all of you, so you can get to know her a little bit more.
Q+A with Logan:
How long have you been practicing/training at Yoga Athletex?
I have been training at Yoga Athletex for a little over a year.
What benefits have you received since training at Yoga Athletex?
I have increased my vertical at least 4 inches, gotten rid of old knee problems, and gained a lot more endurance.
What is your sport?
I play volleyball.
What is your favorite class at Yoga Athletex and why?
My favorite class is jump training because it targets volleyball specifically. I have gotten so much better at using my power in to jump up rather than out which has helped me so much on the court when facing big blockers.
Any advice for new people trying out the studio?
At first the classes will seem really hard, but don’t stop. Just keep going as much as you can and it will get easier over time, and once that happens you can push yourself in the workouts even harder.
I started coming to YAX to increase my vertical but by taking the the other yoga and mobility classes it has helped me get faster on the court, become more flexible, and improve my form.
