Nicole Branagh and the Importance of Endurance

Olympic volleyball player Nicole Branagh made her second visit to Denker Elementary in December.

The students worked on their endurance with Coach Nicole as they continued to prepare for the FitnessGram.

For 15 minutes the students did as many rounds of activity as possible, which consisted of 1 lap, 10 push ups, 1 more lap and then 10 sit-ups.

It wasn't easy but the students pushed through and worked really hard throughout Coach Nicole's visit.

“Don’t ever give up!" Nicole told the students.

"Don’t be afraid to walk through the open doors when they come.  There is so much to learn and it isn’t always easy but it will be worth it," she said.
