Q: Tell us a little about yourself.
A: I’m 15 and a sophomore at Whitesboro High School. My favorite subjects are math and science. I play Ice Hockey for the Clinton Lady Warriors and the CNY Bobcats. I also play lacrosse for my school, the Whitesboro Warriors. I really want to play hockey at RIT or Clarkson University while I study to become an engineer.
Q: How long have you been training at O.B. Training & Sports Performance?
A: My first 3 months were during the summer of 2014. Then I took the winter off for the hockey season, and started again this past June. So far I’ve been coming 2 to 3 days a week for 7 months and counting.
Q: How has training at O.B. Training & Sports Performance helped you become a better athlete?
A: O.B. has had a huge impact on my athletic ability. I’ve become so much faster, stronger, and my endurance is so much better. Without training here I never would have been able to make the varsity hockey team. My coaches even told me I’m one of the strongest players on the team. I owe it all to my training.
Q: What’s your favorite and least favorite exercise?
A: I love sled sprints, if that counts as an exercise. My least favorite would have to be split-squat jumps. Those are just awful.
Q: How has training at O.B. Training changed you as an athlete?
A: My view on exercise has definitely changed. I look forward to coming each and every week, there’s never been a day where I dread going to O.B. If anything, it brightens my mood. I have so much more fun working out, and I constantly strive to be stronger. It’s like an addiction.
Q: What’s your favorite cartoon character and why?
A: Scooby-doo, hands down. He’s a talking dog that solves mysteries and likes to eat. How can you not like him?
Q: Who is your favorite professional athlete?
A: Meghan Duggan, captain of the U.S. Women’s ice hockey team. I met her at a camp one time, and she’s the most funny and down-to-earth person you’ll meet. Her passion for hockey is so obvious and she’s just the type of player everybody wants to be.
Q: What superhero would you compare yourself to?
A: Batman. He’s got no real powers, he works to be great.
Q: Would you rather only be able to listen to Lady Gaga songs OR reread all 56 pages of ITunes terms and conditions, every day for the rest of your life?
A: Listen to Lady Gaga. She’s not the worst artist in the world.
Q: If you could only eat one food all day every day what would it be?
A: Chicken. I never grew out of the chicken tender phase like my mom always hoped I would. I’m eating a crispy chicken sub right now actually.
