Roller Con 2009 Challenge Bout Team Awesome vs Team Sexy

A little about me. I have always been athletic and into training and nutrition through the various sports I have played. Soccer, bar room boxing, snowboarding and surfing I don’t care what the sport is. When I started playing roller derby almost 4 years ago it was no different. I immediately wanted to be the best I could be. I would cross train, lift, study you tube videos and read up on the best ways to stay fit and hit hard. I focused hard on honing in my skating skills, while using cross training and balanced nutrition to help with muscle strength and recovery.

Derbalife is a mindset of skaters in the US, Canada, Australia and the UK who know that roller derby is about more that just looking cute in fishnets and roller skates. It’s about kicking major ass while looking good in fishnets and roller skates. We respect ourselves as athletes and strive to boost the level of athletic play in our sport. And the only way to hit hard, skate faster and look hotter in your hot pants is to combine balanced nutrition, cross training, and setting goals to constantly improve your own game.

As the season starts gets kicked into high gear, I challenge all you readers to ask yourself what it is that you want to improve about yourself this season. What do you want to accomplish over the next 12 months? What can you do if you put YOUR mind to it and created the steps to make it happen?

Ready to improve your game but you want some support in developling a game plan? Leave a comment and declair your goals!

  1. i mainly want to be hot. is that okay?

  2. I def need to work on my athletic goals. I know there is a whole world of training and nutrition things to work on but how to balance it? Esp. for me with babies and maybe future babies and a husband. I would be grateful to hear you talk about stuff like this. I really look forward to reading more of your stuff. P.S. I just re-read all of your 90-day blog. I may be a stalker. :) love you!


    • I will totally spend some time on balance! I know every skater has a ton of life stuff going on. How do we balance being epic rockstar skaters AND regular people? I will write a piece soon about pre planning and balance!

  3. You know I’ve got that big, potential, transfer on the brain, and I’ve just been thinking about you telling me: “Winners want the ball.”
    Thanks for all your inspiration and the kick-ass training you gave RSRD back in February. It really invigorated us and we’ve been getting better and better since.

    • Hells yes winners want the ball! You’re doing amazing Tricky! Remember, derby isnt easy. We forget that sometimes becuase we want so badly to be all stars on day one. You’ll get there, I swear! Remember, if it was easy everyone would do it.
