What’s the #1 Thing Judges Look for at Auditions?

Notes from GeNienne

I get this question all of the time from our Lovelies… And the question is warranted. We all want to know what the “secret sauce” is or what is the one thing that we can do to make the team. So it’s a good question but it’s also a question that is very hard to answer.And often my response is, “Well… It depends.”

But to attempt to answer this question… I would have to say that the judges are looking for the “full package.” However each team’s definition of the “full package” will vary.And you know my response is that you need to have the knowledge the style and the glamour and walking to auditions with confidence. This will help you show the judges that you are the “full package”.

But here is the quick overview of my response to this “Q”… but be sure to watch the video for the longer response…

1. It Depends… Just like I mentioned above, it really just depends on the cheer/dance team, judges, slots needed to fill, etc.

2. Full Package

3. Knowledge

4. Style

5. Glamour

Tip: You have to do your research to determine what the “full package” means to the team you are auditioning for. Every team is different and; therefore, had different expectations and needs to their team. Do your RESEARCH!!

Help! I ate WAY TOO MUCH over Thanksgiving! How do I get back on track from the Holidays?

Notes from GeNienne

The Holiday season is always the hardest time to stick to our workouts and eating regimen. Especially during Thanksgiving and December because these are two back-to-back months where we are with family and friends and of course… Food. So this week we are going to focus on how to get back on track if you were not able to stick to your regular workouts and eating regiment over the holiday season.

Here are the 5 Tips (or “5 Gets”) to Get Back on Track & Bounce Back from the Holidays:

1. Get Over It! It’s okay… forgive yourself if you get a little off track during the holidays.

2. Get Focused or Re-focused. Now is the time to get back on track. Schedule your workouts and your meals accordingly. Get out a calendar and write down your plan.

3. Get Fluids… I recommend water! You should be drink at least half of your body weight in ounces of water EVERY day. Yes… EVERY day!!

4. Get Raw. Eat raw, unprocessed foods… eat the simplest form of food that you can. Stay away from heavy, starchy, white foods.

5. Get Moving. Go back to #2 above… and add your workouts to your calendar.

Try to workout in the morning if you can so that other activities don’t take over your day.

Tip: Remember to develop a monthly schedule of your workouts and a weekly schedule for your meals. PREP you mind for your workouts and PREP your meals once a week.If needed, get an accountability partner to help you stay on track!
