Online Scheduling Now Avalible

I have begun to accept online registration for private lessons through my Full-Out Cheer Cheer & Fitness website. I will be tweaking and modifying the system within the next few weeks to ensure the simplest scheduling experience possible. This new online registration should make scheduling lessons simpler both myself and my clients. It will also avoid any communication issues with private lessons.

To schedule a lesson:

  • Click HERE or on the “Book Lessons Now!” button on the top of the page.
  • Chose your location for your lesson under the “Categories” tab on the left side of the page.
  • Chose the kind of lesson you would like to schedule under “Services.”
  • Chose the date and time you would like from the list available sessions.
  • Enter your/your athlete’s contact details.
  • Confirm the details you entered are correct and your done!

Happy scheduling everybody! Don’t forget to like the Full-Out Cheer and Fitness page on Facebook!

As a few of you might know, I like to post on the fierce board. fierceboard.com is a online community for cheerleaders, coaches, parents, and fans. Some athletes regularly ask questions related to tumbling skills. Using my years of experience, I try to answer some of their questions in a way that will thoroughly help them understand the skills they are trying to master. The following was an example of one of the questions I answered.

So what’s happening here?

Basically, this is going to be the launching site for a new project I am working on called FULL-OUT Cheer & Fitness. Full-Out’s goal will be to revolutionize the way cheerleaders learn new skills and prepare their bodies for the high demands placed upon them during the competitive season.

In the upcoming weeks and months I will begin to add more information about the project. But in the meantime this site will remain a blog where I write helpful articles, comment on industry news, and keep my followers up-to-date on my endeavors. If you have any cheer or fitness related questions feel free to email them to coach.matt@cheerfullout.com and if I like it I will answer it with a blog post!
