Bianca Waiton Fitness, Workout Library, Workouts

When NAKOA was asked to be the Sports Performance provider for the Charger’s Cheerleaders Performance Coach Sean Maguire happily stepped up to the task knowing that Cheerleaders need to be trained and conditioned just like players on the field they cheer on. It takes a ton of strength, power and muscular endurance, not to mention that amazing figure we see on the sidelines to be a Charger’s Girl. So just what are they doing to maintain such awesome bodies? Check out Coach Sean going through one of the Chargers Cheerleader workouts in the video below. We know he’s not as pretty as the girls but he’s definitely got what it takes to keep them in shape! ­ See more at:
