High School Senior Kristen VanBenschoten from Cranford, NJ, has recently execeeded her personal records in Discus & Shotput. Kristin joined the track team as a Sophomore in the Spring 2010 season. She was able to set her personal records in Discus 89'6" and Shotput 28'3" during that season.
On 12/16/10, she received her initial ZenoLink evaluation and trained using her ZenoLink Progressive Skills Training program exclusively 2x weekly until the start of the Spring Season in 2011. She eclipsed her personal bests after the Spring 2011 season in Discus 114'1" and Shotput 34'11".
We are happy to say that she and her training coach Bruce Bowers from Acceleration Plus credit her improvement in Discus 24'7" and Shotput 6'8" to her ZenoLink PST program and apporaching her training in a truly functional manor specific to her sports.
Following her next evaluation on 7/5/2011, she has been working on improving Speed with part two of speed development program.
Kristin will be reevaluated again on November 15th 2011 at which point we will be working with her and Bruce in designing a program to prepare for her Senior year Spring Season.
Kristen has her eyes set on continuing her Track career in college with the improvements she has made using ZenoLink and we are confident she will continue to improve and achieve her goal.
On a side note, Kristen has also just started working with Throwing Coach Kevin DiGiorgio, owner of DiGiorgio Power Training Inc. which will add even more to her quest to excel in Track.
