The word AWP brings feelings of both hate and appreciation. I hate it because it is one of the hardest workouts I have ever done.
AWP stands for Athletes With Purpose. It’s a sports facility where you can go to basketball workouts. It’s kind of like having a personal trainer, only they make you do all this basketball stuff — and everything is full-out sprint.
The drills they have us do are really good skill builders. That being said, I find myself dreading the day of the week when I have to go. But at least my friend Briley went along. That made it more fun.
I hope to get more of my friends going to the Y now that they offer free memberships to seventh-graders. Then we can play even more basketball!
