The October athlete of the month goes to the Indianola group of Anna Hoyman, Ellie Jensen, Maddie Glascock, and Tommy Glascock who attend sessions at our Waukee location. This group has been the model of consistency and they always bring a lot of positive energy to the gym. They lead by example with the way they put forth tremendous effort but they also lead vocally by giving encouragement to other athletes. They have all seen outstanding results so far this fall making the cheetah club and increasing their overall athleticism. We look forward to continuing this progress and have them ready for a fantastic basketball season!

CIA swimmers Andrew Rottinghaus(left) and Grant Nelson(right) working on their posterior chain during a workout. Both of these guys have worked extremely hard these past few months. Recently they have been coming in right after swim practice to get their dry land training in! This hard work and dedication will pay off during the season. Keep up the great work!

Good luck to Ankeny native and AI athlete Joel Lanning as he will be making his first career start for Iowa State when they host Texas this weekend. We have enjoyed watching Joel earn a starting spot after throwing 4 touchdowns during the last 2 games, including 3 against #2 Baylor last weekend. Good Luck Joel!!!
Shout-out to the newest members of the Cheetah Club at Acceleration Iowa in Ankeny. Olivia Parker maxed out at 17.0 mph after training with us for just 3 weeks. Conor Riordan and Kobe Naber both ran 20.0 mph for 6 seconds. Only in 7th grade, Kobe is one of the youngest members to earn a spot in the cheetah club!!
