If you can’t be an Olympic athlete, why not work out like one? With the 2010 Vancouver Games quickly approaching, we can’t help but feel inspired to become a little bit faster, a little bit stronger and a little bit better. Even though we can’t enjoy the snowy slopes here in Phoenix, we are still learning a few things from this year’s top contenders.
Lindsey Vonn:Forget Picabo Street, Lindsey Vonn is dominating the slopes, and emerging as one of the best female skiers in the world. With multiple World Cup medals under her belt, she’s returning to the 2010 Games for the second time. Keep an eye out for Lindsey as she will be completing in multiple events with the U.S. ski team.
- Inspiration: So what do we take away from Lindsey’s career? She’s one tough chick. Known for a number of nasty spills, it isn’t uncommon for her to get back up and try again. Despite bumps and bruises she’s living our motto “No Excuses”.
Apolo Anton Ohno: We all know Apolo for his numerous trips to the Olympics, and of course those impressive quadriceps! He’s back on the speed skating rink, and likely to find himself on the winner’s podium once again. We are hoping to witness more new world records with his name on them.
- Inspiration: Apolo knows one of the secrets to staying happy and healthy: take chances. On a recent break from skating, Apolo dominated the hit television show Dancing with the Stars. Follow his lead and sign up for a new activity this week. Dancing, hiking, swimming, body building—do something that is out of your comfort zone.
Shaun White: Untouchable is the word to describe Shaun White. From a young age he has pioneered the sport of snowboarding. Although snowboarding has had a tough time keeping its name as an Olympic sport, that hasn’t stopped White. He’s still pushing the limits by creating wild tricks of his own.
- Inspiration: Shaun doesn’t take “no” for an answer. He knows what he wants to accomplish, and won’t stop until he gets there. Even on your toughest days, keep your focus. Remind yourself of your goals, and surround yourself with people who will encourage you to achieve them.
Tune in to the Olympic Games next month and find your own inspiration: http://www.vancouver2010.com/
