And last but not least…
Newman High Performance: For any Newman athlete high performance needs no introduction. Coach Nick has been posting daily workouts on his Instagram to help all students, athletes or not, stay in shape during our time off. These workouts use household equipment (so no crazy weight racks required), and are especially great for all of us missing spring lifts for fall sports.
