Have you started thinking about those upcoming tryouts? If not, you
should. Tryouts will be here before you know it, and the time to get ready
is here. I know, tryouts can be intimidating–for everyone. It does not
matter if you are a seasoned veteran on the team, you are trying out for that
college team, or this is your first tryouts ever, there is a lot that goes into
being tryout ready.
And, the trick to being tryout ready is to starting preparing now.
Fitness is a powerful tool that any cheerleader can use for
success. Anyone getting ready to tryout should start working on a fitness
routine 2-3 months before tryouts. This is the time to strengthen both your
body and your mind. As an expert fitness trainer for cheerleaders, I want to help you
walk into tryouts with confidence and walk out with a spot on the team. To help
you best prepare, I’ve put together a few of my favorite fitness tips and
exercises, straight from our Tryout Prep Program.
