Nina’s Quest

Posted by michael stanwyck

This is Nina. Maybe 3 or 4 weeks ago she couldn't do a single double under. None. Zero. Nada. Zip. Not one. Not even close. I don't think she'd mind me telling you that she was actually really bad at them. Then one day she had a little breakthrough. She got a little purchase on it and didn't let go. She immediately started practicing (a lot) and setting goals for herself. Yesterday she did a workout with 200 double unders in it and completed every single one. She also managed to do 10 in a row. I don't know what it was that led to the breakthrough, that just takes time, but I do know what led to the success. It was that "not letting go" part. That commitment is all you really need to attain your goals. Her next goal? Getting up on the board. I'd watch out if I were you.

In Their Own Words...
My daughter has been going to CFLAKids for nearly two months and she loves it. I love it for her. She is, in general, very athletic and coming here fosters her desire to be competitive, which is important to me. Girls should be able to let this side thrive, if they want it.. The classes make her stronger and faster and more able to enjoy the other sports she's involved in. - Danette R.
