If any team in the state of Delaware knows about athletic success, it’s your local Cape Henlopen girl’s lacrosse team. The Cape Henlopen girl’s lacrosse team has been training at the Body Shop Fitness Center for the past seven years. At the Body Shop, Adam David Howard B.S.CPT, owner, has been introducing the girls to many important elements of fitness. The girls have been participating in sports specific personal training, yoga, zumba, spinning, and most recently nutritional counseling. Understanding the importance of nutrition in sports, Adam contacted local registered dietician Lisa Harkins to provide the girls with correct information concerning sports nutrition. Lisa distributed hand-outs addressing sports nutrition, healthy snacks, pre/post workouts meals, and various hydration tips.
