Vivian Lopez walked through the doors of Champion’s QUEST back in July of 2015 looking to increase her strength on the soccer field, as well as her technical ball skills. Vivian’s long-term goal is to play soccer professionally.
Currently, Vivian plays center midfield for her club soccer team TFA-S.E.L.A ’05, coached by Frank Lopez. Vivian and her team recently competed in the Southwest Soccer Club Labor Day Classic tournament this past weekend. Her team went undefeated, totaling 14 goals scored and conceding none, on their way to winning the championship.
Other tournaments that Vivian’s TFA team have won this summer include the Southwest Soccer Club Summer Classic in Temecula, the Nike Pyramid Cup in South Bay, YVYSO Spartan Cup in Yucaipa, CSL Cal Cup and Celtic Cup in San Bernardino.
At Champion’s QUEST, Vivian attends Speed and Strength clinics to develop her athleticism on the soccer field to complement her technical skills. In just over a year of training, Vivian has shown progress across the board in her athleticism. She improved her power by increasing her standing vertical jump from 14 to 17 inches. Vivian also made significant strides in her speed by lowering her 10-yard sprint time from 2.28s to 1.87s and her 5-10-5 change of direction times by over a second.
However, Vivian showed her biggest improvements in her total body strength. She increased her push up score from 5 to 40 repetitions (1 minute limit) and her plank hold time by 3 minutes! In total, Vivian has improved her athleticism by over 380% since beginning training at Champion’s QUEST.
Keep up all the hard work Vivian! I’m excited to hear of your continued success on and off the soccer field this year. Enjoy your Play It Again Sports $20 “Fun Bucks” coupon at the Los Alamitos location on Katella. Click below to try out on of our athletic performance clinics!
