Introducing Miss Rachel Lewis VillaSport Rising Youth All-Star Colorado Springs, Colorado When Rachel Lewis joined VillaSport Colorado Springs in 2009, she was 2½ years young and just getting comfortable with this thing called walking. As a toddler, Mom and Dad, Sandra and Eric Lewis, enrolled Rachel in StarBabies, where children up to 36 months learn to feel comfortable in the water and begin to develop a love for swimming. Rachel continued through the VillaSport Starfish Swimming Program and today, at age 6, she is water-safe. Rachel showed an interest in other sports and has participated in many youth programs, including the VillaKids tumbling classes. Having passion for a little competition, Rachel enrolled in the VillaSport youth Fall soccer and Spring basketball leagues. She also participated in the sports clinics to hone her emerging skills. Her dad, Eric, tells us that at first Rachel was a bit frustrated, particularly with basketball, but with some instruction from our sports associates and practice, Rachel is shooting, making baskets, and most importantly, having fun. Matt Baarts, Sports Coordinator, tells us that Rachel has shown major improvement in her soccer skills since attending the soccer clinics. Her coordination increased dramatically and she has blossomed from a child into a young athlete. QuickStart Tennis was introduced at VillaSport in Spring 2013. Being the young athlete she is, Rachel was one of the first to enroll. She is making great strides in the tennis program and is VillaSport’s youngest athlete to move up the progression levels to “blue” this Fall. We understand she can’t get enough of the racquet and insists on playing at home too, using the garage door as a backboard. While only 6 years old, Rachel has displayed a great deal of maturity in all her sports activities. She has an outgoing personality and shines on and off the court, field or pool. Our VillaSport sports associates all agree — Rachel’s attitude and fun-loving ways put smiles on all their faces. Thanks, Rachel, for participating in so many of the VillaSport youth programs. You are our super youth all-star!

Introducing Bogy Yordanov The Woodlands, Texas Bogy Yordanov is an active 25-year-old who has been training at VillaSport since late May 2013. He travels heavily for work to remote locations with no access to a local gym or athletic training facility, which makes it challenging to maintain a consistent routine. Having the help and guidance of his trainer, Patrick Mirrielees, has been extremely beneficial. Bogy had a specific goal in mind when he came to VillaSport. He wanted to whip his upper body into shape, build a solid core, and correct his posture when standing and sitting. He told Patrick about his extensive work travel and wanted more free-weight and calisthenics-based workouts due to equipment limitations. Patrick created a nutritional plan for him to follow, as well as a break-in routine. Patrick introduced Bogy to the TRX suspension trainer within minutes of his first session, although Bogy wasn’t very confident that the TRX would help him build the upper-body strength he was looking for. He discovered, however, after the first set that he couldn’t have been more wrong. One thing he quickly realized was the importance of performing the exercises with a good tempo and proper form. After working with Patrick for a mere three weeks, Bogy was getting compliments from friends and co-workers about how much bigger his arms were getting and how much better he looked physically. The workouts are always fun and fresh, and Patrick does NOT back down. If Bogy is struggling, Patrick may come in and help him a bit, but the fact that he doesn’t go easy on Bogy is something Bogy really enjoys. Not only does it help him reach his goals faster, but it also helps him discipline his mental state, which can quickly make or break a workout. For those of you reading this article, use this as motivation for pursuing your own success story. We all have the potential to better ourselves. Set goals and tackle them head-on. Be the example!
