Q&A with Rox Pro Brooke Sweat
Posted on 19 December 2013
We decided to catch up with Rox Pro, Brooke Sweat to see what she has in store for the offseason and the holidays. You’ll be surprised to know that this beach pro loves to head straight for snow whenever she has the chance.
What type of training do you do in off-season?
My body was a little beat up after a long 2013 season so I've been working my butt off with the trainers at ProSport Fitness/Therapy in Newport Beach to get ready for 2014. They introduced me to Foundation Training - learning how to use my body/muscles correctly has rapidly increased my strength, balance and flexibility. Of course still lifting and doing cardio and plyometrics.
Do you have any trips planned for the holidays?
I visited my brother, Brett, in North Dakota for Thanksgiving! Even though there is absolutely nothing up there (besides oil) it was so much fun to see that part of the country and just relax! Mom sent a Honey Baked ham so we were all set for Thanksgiving dinner (I don't and can't cook)! Beginning of December my family took a trip to Snowmass, Colorado for some snow skiing and boarding! We used to go every year as kids, but we hadn't been in about 5 years so it was a blast to get back out there!
Do you have a New Years resolution?
I have never made a New Years resolution and I don't plan on changing that this year!
What are you going to ask Santa for this year?
I have no idea! I'm just excited that I'll be home in Florida spending time with all of my family. They mean the world to me - being with them is all that matters!
Do you have any big plans for the 2014 beach seasons?
I am planning to play a full FIVB season again in 2014, but I'm really looking forward to the AVPs! I love playing in the states in front of our fans! I'm enjoying my "time off" but I'm anxious to get back out there and get the season started!
Brooke, 27, has had a great pro beach career so far, even winning the AVP’s Best Defensive Player in 2013. We are lucky to have Brooke be apart of our team and wish her the best of luck for the upcoming season!
