Tommy and Evan have been coming twice a week this summer on top of football camps, lifting, and school agility. Despite their busy schedule they come ready to work and make the most of the summer. The summer is the best time to develop as an athlete! Here is a portion of their workout off the super treadmill with heavy sled pushes, thrusters, and bar jumping burpees.
Acceleration Iowa Athlete Molly Platte was a huge part of the 14UA USSSA State Championship teams catching every game on the way to the title. Congratulations Molly you have worked hard and deserve it!
Congrats to the two newest members of the cheetah club. Brigid Smith and Kaylee Hudspeth both travel from over 2 hours away to workout at our Ankeny location 3 times per week. These girls push themselves through back-to-back workouts every time they come in and it has been exciting to see them improve every session. Both girls are proud members of the super cheetah club after maxing out at 19.0 mph on the tread. Keep up the good work ladies!!
Congrats to Dowling Catholic Senior, Nathan Leon, on being the newest member to the Cheetah Club! He has been working extremely hard this off season to prepare for football season. Awesome job Nathan! Keep up that great work ethic!
This month’s Acceleration Iowa Athlete of the Month is Collin Schroeder. In the fall he will be a 9th grader at Iowa Christian Academy. Collin has been training at Acceleration Iowa for one year and participates in track, basketball, and archery.
This past track season Collin placed 1st in the 200M dash at the Bluegrass Conference meet, where his team won for a second straight year! Last fall Collin broke his personal record in the 400M by running a blazing 59.2 in Guthrie Center. Earlier this year he placed first at the Winter Iowa Games in archery. His favorite memory at AI was during a 400M workout where he finished first 5/6 times.
Congratulations Collin! We are all excited to see where your hard work takes you, keep it up!
Congratulations to Centennial Junior Kendyl Lindaman on breaking the state home run record against Ankeny Monday night. It was Lindaman’s 55th home run and we expect to see plenty more during her career. Check her interview with the Des Moines Register out below.
Ricky Chestnutwood was introduced to the game of Rugby just a few years ago and it has proven to be a sport he was made for. He recently signed with Lindenwood University to play D1 rugby which has been a life-long dream. He has been working out at Acceleration Iowa to get ready for his first season. Congratulations Ricky!
Missouri Tiger, Dallas Center Grimes graduate and former Acceleration Iowa Athlete Paige Lowary will get the honor of representing the United States of America on the Junior National softballs team! Congratulations Paige and good luck!
Congratulations to all of the girls on making it to the semi-finals in state!

They finished their season at 14-7. Congrats on a great season ladies, you’ll get them next year!
