While the summer brings sunshine, relaxation, downtime with the family, and picnic after picnic, it usually is accompanied by weight gain, and inconsistency at the gym. As coaches, we have grown accustomed to seeing class sizes dwindle, especially during the month of August. We cannot say how ecstatic we were to see larger class sizes of this August then we have ever seen in the past. As a result of this, look at all of the amazing accomplishments that were made by our athletes during the course of the summer!
If you found yourself falling into the rut that excessive eating, drinking, and an inconsistent gym schedule, tell yourself today that you are going to get back on track this fall! If you need some extra motivation, feel free to email any of your coaches at Shoreline Athletics. I guarantee that they can give you the push you may need. Honestly, the majority of the battle is just walking back through the doors. So; let’s do it; I’ll see you tonight! Perhaps your name will be on the accomplishment board for September.
