The ladies that make up the Dallas Desire football team have shown they know how to handle a pigskin but before the girls can storm the field they hit the gym. If you think this team’s training program is routine Metroflex Gym trainer Steve Trentham says think again.
“We’re going to take them out and do some unconventional stuff,” said Steve Trentham.
Part of this unconventional workout includes lifting heavy, monster tires that weight over two hundred and fifty pounds. Not an easy task unless you’re a Dallas Desire.
“It’s definitely an intense environment,” said Trentham. “This is not a powder puff team or someone that’s going for something that’s routine or easy. They’re playing full, contact football. They’re trying to knock each others heads off.”
Lingerie may be this team’s uniform but don’t be fooled. It’s full throttle football and these girls love it.
“It’s definitely not touch football,” said Dallas Desire Quarterback Linda Brenner. “It’s full contact, smash mouth, tackle football. We’re trying to kill each other out there.”
Metroflex Gym’s unique style of conditioning has helped fast track the team to peak, physical condition.
“We went to their season opener and these girls are hitting,” saidMetroflex Gym Owner Greg McCoy. “They’re not playing around. The intensity is through the roof because they want to be better then the girl across from them.”
This team is looking to improve after they went win less in 2010 and are looking to breakout in 2011.
“You’re going to be surprised,” said Dallas Desire Running Back Candi Forbes. “It’s so intense and there’s a lot of talking, attitude and competition.”
During their workouts it’s all business. When it comes to football it’s all or nothing. According to this team the only thing girly is the lingerie.
