Trainer Katerina Kountouris leads series of bodyweight only exercises.
Once asked for advice in following her career path as a certified physical trainer, clinical nutritionist and professional host, Katerina Kountouris gave a very clear and concise answer.
"Don't let anything or anyone stand in your way," she said. "Keep working hard and trying new things."
Considering high school athletes are up against the coronavirus pandemic — forcing social distancing and shelter-in-place restrictions — this opponent is fierce.
But Kountouris offers the perfect remedy in a series of at-home workouts to keep student athletes fit, strong and engaged.
Kountouris has teamed with MaxPreps by offering upbeat, challenging, but easy-to-follow, workouts. She's a Group X instructor who has hosted games for NBA and MLB franchises along with various other events. Keeping large groups motivated and informed is her passion and forte.
Her first workout for MaxPreps utilizes body weight only so follow along and keep fit for your team during this challenge time.
