Athletic Lab is made up of a diverse group of goal-oriented and hard-working individuals. That's why we take a moment each month to highlight one (or more) of our members in our member of the month feature. For the month of February, we've chosen three of our Scholastic Athletes. Ella Reaves Vaughan (ERV), Grace New, and Grace Nelson are lacrosse players at Cardinal Gibbons. Though they have spent their high school years on the same lacrosse team, and several months (or in some cases, years) training together at Athletic Lab, they will all be going off to separate schools to continue their lacrosse careers. ERV will be attending the University of Virginia, Grace New the University of Louisville, and Grace Nelson THE Ohio State University. All three have been working hard in their group private sessions as part of our Scholastic Sports Performance Program. You can check out our previous members of the month here. Name: Ella Reaves Vaughan (ERV) Age: 17 What sport do you participate in? Lacrosse How long have you been participating your sport? 6 years Can you tell us more about the school you've committed to? UVA is the perfect school since it’s located in the South and is a big ACC school; I especially love the coaches and how they unite the team together to make playing lacrosse even more fun. What is your favorite and least favorite exercise? Favorite: tie between sprinting drills and K-Box / Least favorite: pushups What do you feel have been your greatest accomplishments so far? My greatest accomplishments so far have definitely been committing to UVA in October of this year, along with becoming so much stronger (thanks to our squats) and faster with the help of Coach Matt [...]

On Saturday January 6th, the staff of Athletic Lab administered a training camp for all of the athletes who will be representing SONC at the USA Special Olympic Games in Seattle. Athletic Lab taught the athletes valuable techniques to improve their performance and reduce their likelihood for injury. Additionally, the athletes were put through a battery of performance tests that their coaches could use to assess their fitness and guide their preparation for Seattle. North Carolina Special Olympics (SONC) is gearing up to compete in the USA Special Olympics Games in Seattle during the Summer of 2018 and they're using Athletic Lab to help them be their best. In preparation for the upcoming summer's national competition, athletes from all over the state of North Carolina recently gathered at Athletic Lab Sports Performance Training Center for a training camp. Over 90 SONC athletes and their coaches from a range of different sports, including: track & field, basketball, bocce, bowling, flag football, golf, gymnastics, powerlifting, swimming, tennis and volleyball participated. "It's always such a rewarding experience and an honor anytime we're able to open our doors to Special Olympics. In association with Special Olympics, I often hear 'Winning is great, but attitude is everything.' This is a great motto for everyone and not just in relation to sport, but in life. It's very refreshing to see the camaraderie of the Special Olympic athletes and the enthusiasm they have for their sport. They don't look at or dwell on limitations, but they're instead focused on what they can do. Coming from all areas of North Carolina, it's not likely the athletes were all super familiar with one another at the training camp, but you'd never know it. There's always such a special [...]

Athletic Lab is made up of a diverse group of goal-oriented and hard-working individuals. That’s why we take a moment each month to highlight one (or more) of our members in our member of the month feature. For the month of January, we’ve chosen Jack Flood. Jack is a member of the Athletic Lab Track Club, and recently set lifetime personal bests for his total score (5,460), 60m, shot put and pole vault to take 2nd place overall and qualify for the USA Track & Field Indoor National Championships. Several weeks later, Flood improved in the shot put again and broke his club record in the event for the 2nd time in as many meets with a throw of 14.69m. You can check out our previous members of the month here. Name: Jack Flood What city were you born in? Blue Point, NY What’s your favorite exercise? Least favorite? Favorite Exercise: Power Cleans and Squats; Least Favorite Exercise: Turkish Get-Ups, by far! How did you first hear about Athletic Lab? I first heard about Athletic Lab back in late June after viewing a video on Devin Cornelius's Instagram. I saw he was still training for the Decathlon and I instantly went to the website. I saw what Eric Broadbent did and knew this would be the right fit for me. I then planned out a way on how I was going to move down (to NC). Coincidentally, my older brother Zach lived in Holly Springs, so in September, I decided to move down to begin training. What do you enjoy most about competing post-collegiately? No difference to me, I really love competing. What competition stands out the most to you and why? Competing in a Heptathlon [...]
