From Coach Louis
What stands out about Riley?
Riley has a strong work-ethic and an internal desire to improve. She isn’t incredibly vocal in class but she leads by doing. She is quick to take initiative to grab a taller box for jumps or add some pounds to the barbell for her next lift. When she speaks up in class, it’s usually to encourage someone else in the class. She is a leader in the class by trying to do better for herself.
Riley is very coachable. If I give her some insight to a movement that she needs to correct, she’s willing to adjust and correct it.
Riley is not afraid to lift weights and push herself. She’s is not intimidated by the boys. In fact, she will outlift some of the guys with good form and technique. I will use her as a demonstration because she can get into the right position and execute the movement correctly. I hope Riley has continued success as she trains and plays her sports. We love having her at goperformance.
