From Coach Lane
Three words that describe Brody – tenacious, happy and determined.
I call him “Brody the Beast” because he is always in beast mode in the gym. I have to tell him to slow down and take his time on exercises. He is there to work hard and give it his all. He goes as hard as he can for as long as he can. He gets it from his mom!
When Brody started doing training with us at goperformance he wanted to get in shape for soccer and improve his overall endurance for school.
Brody is only 9 years old. He’s our youngest athlete of the month. He already understands that in order to improve you have to practice. You can just sit by and hope to improve. He wants to win and has the mindset of a winner.
Brody has signed with Atlanta United. I am so excited for him. It’s a true honor to be selected. We joke with him that he’s the youngest sponsored athlete we’ve ever coached.
