WEEKLY WORKOUT 
June 22nd-28th
Below are Coach Jennifer and Coach Maureen's Workout YouTube videos for this week. Coach Maureen and Coach Jennifer will be doing the 30 Min HIIT Cardio or the 30 Min Cardio Video 4 to 5 times a week. We will be doing the 6 Minute Ab Workout 3 to 4 times a week. We will also be doing the 25 Minute Yoga for Swimmers Video 2-3 times a week to help maintain our flexibility. 
 
Flexibility: Make sure to keep focussing on your flexibility and stretching. New activities and workouts can tighten different muscle groups.  Make sure that you are stretching at least 2-3 days a week. Feel free to stretch more if needed.
  
Additional Cardio Recommended: In addition to the videos, Coach Jennifer goes for a 1 hour walk or bike ride each day with her dog and family. Coach Maureen also hikes with her dog Cali each day. What else will you do to stay active?  Make sure to find something you enjoy doing.

VJO DINNER FUNDRAISER OVER
Thank you Panlilio Family!
Unfortunately we are unable to host our last VJO Dinner Fundraiser this week. Work schedules have changed for the Panlilio family and unfortunately time does not allow them to host any additional VJO Dinner Fundraisers.  We can’t thank the Panlilio Family enough for the amazing dinners and fundraising opportunities they provided our team. The dinners were absolutely phenomenal. We hope to be able to continue these dinner fundraisers again in the future. 
We give a BIG “Thank you” to the Panlilio Family!

 
 
 
 
 
 
Go SHARKS!
We are all in this Together!
 
 
 
 
 
 
Make sure to take advantage of your time and get better at something each day.  
Keep up your workouts!
