Sponsor Spotlight: Transformation Athletics

OHRD is proud to share another one of our 2018 sponsors: Transformation Athletics! Transformation Athletics was born when former charter skater, The Smacktivist, saw a need in the community for body-positive fitness training. The key principles of Transformation Athletics are: all bodies are good bodies, all bodies are worthy of love, all humans deserve access to trauma-informed modalities of healing, and fitness is for everyone. Taking a trauma and mental health informed approach to coaching, Max works to empower their clients to make healthy choices based on their individual needs. Max is an ISSA certified personal trainer and corrective exercise specialist and enjoys working with the trans and queer community, and athletes alike, to help folks find healing in strength.

2018 Derby Resolutions

Happy 2018! With the first full week of post-break practice complete, we checked in with members of OHRD to see what plans they had for the upcoming season! Some common threads emerged: Putting more time into off-skates workouts and building derby skills, so we start the season right where we left off (or better!) Working on our mental game, both in playing smart and having fun. Encouraging each other, working together and supporting our teammates so that we are the best team we can be — which hopefully leads to a winning season with ALL the points! Is your 2018 resolution to get in shape, learn to skate, or make a bunch of new friends? Do all three at once! Check out our next WannaBe Clinic! Picture by: Matthew Hatcher
