MVC Sponsor: Life Time Fitness


As a fan, do you ever wonder how The Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders keep their energy and stamina through game day? Well look no further, than to the expertise of physical training from the premier clubs of Life Time Fitness.  Trainers Ryan Svenby and Andrew Knuth, both out of the Lakeville Life Time club, are the two highly educated and experienced trainers that facilitate and motivate the 35 MVC ladies through two workouts a week at their practices.  The workouts with Life Time are also incorporated into the MVC Prep Classes, workshops and auditions.  Because Life Time is the official fitness and nutrition sponsor of the MVC, they have access to the best advice, trends and trainers in the fitness industry.  Each MVC is individually coached to achieve her goals and best level of fitness.   The focus of each workout may vary, with exercises such as resistance training, cardio, strength and yoga for flexibility.  

Thank you Life Time for not only getting the team photo shoot ready for our new calendar, but also for allowing us to shoot our calendar at the Lakeville Life Time Fitness Club! Make sure to check out the final product as it is available now at for purchase. The MVC is thrilled to showcase our love for fitness each and every day, and of course, especially on game day!!! SKOL Vikes!!!
