COMMUNITY BRIEFLY: Local soccer coach turns to personal training
During the fall soccer season, you will find Cassie Carter walking up and down the sidelines shouting encouragement to members of the Carson High varsity girls soccer team.
Carter, after graduating from the University of Nevada in May, has started a personal training business through Atleta. She is doing boot camps, personal training and sport specific training.
Starting next week, she is starting a summer cardio conditioning and summer strength conditioning programs at Mills Park.
Both programs are open to all athletes at all schools. Carter said she hopes to raise the bar for sports in Northern Nevada by getting the athletes fit before their season starts.
The cardio program is Monday, Wednesday and Friday for four weeks starting July 12 and is $90. The strength program is Tuesday and Thursday for four weeks, starting July 13 and is $60. Both classes go from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
The athletes also can attend both classes for $130. Registration is done at the Carson City Aquatic Center. The athletes must obtain a liability form and have it signed prior to working out (these are available at the pool).
For more information, contact Carter at 297-1719.
