Today I spent some time with an outstanding high school athlete, volleyball player Lanie Wagner of Xavier College Prepatory. Lanie started working with us at FITLIFE Health Systems in our Functional Training Program in December of 2015 and has continued to train in our P.A.S.S.S program when her schedule allows. Volleyball players, like most high school athletes, have very little down time due to the commitment of playing both high school and club. The demand on their bodies is great. In order to keep playing at a high level, taking care of their bodies is a must.
Lanie understands these demands and works extremely hard at being in the best playing shape possible. Pretty tough for someone who practices 2-3 times a week, plays tournaments on the weekend, attends a rigorous academic high school and has a social life. Her awards on the volleyball court are many and impressive including;
- AZ Volleyball Gatorade Player of the year Nominee
- Premier Region player of the year
- AZ Republic Top 8 players in the state
- 6A Conference player of the year 2017
- 6A Conference First Team
- MaxPreps All American 2nd Team
- XCP Varsity MVP and 4 year Varsity Letter
- Arizona Academic All American from AZ Central
Lanie is going to continue her volleyball career next fall at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee. She is an outside hitter and will have a good chance of playing as a Freshman. Her work ethic exceeds many athletes her age and this drive and determination will serve her well at the college level.
Good Luck Lanie!
I hope you have enjoyed meeting another FITLIFE client. We truly have an incredible group of people to work with every day. Have a safe and healthy weekend.
