Meet Paige Herman, our newest sponsored athlete. Paige is part of a competitive cheer team as their “Flyer”. Paige is the epitome of what makes a World Class Athlete.
Being a flyer is a very active position on the team…Paige is the top person, in what ever stunt is being done…she does more than just getting lifted and tossed by the bases. She needs to be very fit and strong and must be able to climb, jump, balance and twist when the team is stunting.
Paige works hard to ensure that her technique is perfect and she has an awareness of her body in that she is very able to just sense whether her body is in proper alignment or not. This is critical to performing the best stunt. Watching her perform, you can see that she has an amazing control of her body and incredible balance. Finally, Flexibility is key to the position of flyer and Paige is beyond flexible…In other words this kid has all the physical abilities, the drive and the desire to be the best but most importantly she is an incredible person. We feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with this young athlete and be part of her journey to worlds.
Providing sport/athletic massage as part of a sponsorship program is critical to our athletes overall maintenance program, helping to keep their bodies injury free and ready to perform during their playing season.
