What is the "Reveal Your Champion" program?
Reveal your Champion is a one-year training program that provides a variety of workouts focused on different areas of fitness to help you become the best athlete you can be! Each month program participants will set goals and work to achieve them. The program also includes health and wellness activities in addition to the workouts. WE are going to help YOU Reveal Your Champion!
How does it work?
Each month a new program will be published on the Reveal Your Champion website. Each day will consist of an activity or workout. You will be able to access all of the resources, including pictures and videos, here on the Reveal Your Champion website to help you complete the program. Prior to the beginning of each month you will set a goal for that month which will help you Reveal Your Champion!
READY TO GET STARTED?
It is time to Duck, Dip, Dive and Dodge our way through Month 6 of RYC. In this month, we will be focusing on agility and speed. These workouts are all about doing fast, coordinated movements. That means we need to be quick, nimble, and ready to move in any direction as quickly as possible. Want to be faster? Participate in these workouts to improve your speed and reaction time. Every sport you train and compete in requires you to have a fast reaction time, or perform precise movements. This is the perfect training month to make sure you are ready for when they yell “GO”!
So, what makes this month different?
Self-Care Sunday: There is no prescribed workout/challenge, but instead the athletes are encouraged to take time for themselves and reflect on what their body needs and goals.
Maximize Monday: We will be working on improving our overall athletics, as well as our posture and athletics stance.
Thriving Tuesday: Testing our rapidness and quick movements, while focusing on improving our multidirectional speed.
Transformational Thursday: Building our leg muscles and skills to accelerate and decelerate. Make sure you have lots of water and your running shoes on.
Friday Agility Challenges: General speed and agility. Putting all your hard work you put in this week and see what you can achieve.
Saturday Sprints: Focus on building Linear speed. Find a flat, open space to sprint for 10meters to 100meters. Make sure to have your speed shoes on.
We are continuing to pair our monthly focus workouts with general workouts to make sure we are building well-rounded and strong athletes.

Reminders: Have your best workout. Make sure there are no electrical cords, loose carpet or furniture in your way. Clear away any objects or hazards and have a 6 feet by 4 feet open space. Workout with bare feet or wear running shoes, and make sure they are tied. Have water available to drink and remember to breath and have fun!
