"Before I started personal training at the HLC with Tim, I never really lifted weights too much," Whitney says. "With the training, I've gained a lot of strength throughout my body which has really helped me become a better sprinter when I skate; if you don't have a strong sprint you'll never be able to win a race. If it weren't for the development of my sprint, I probably wouldn't have made the national team. Thanks Tim!"
