SCHEELS Athletic Expert
Staying in tip-top shape both mentally and physically has always been at the forefront of Amanda Levin’s life. A Summit League champion in the heptathlon while competing at North Dakota State, Levin enjoyed a very decorated career as a member of the Bison. Being a part of a historic program like NDSU’s helped Levin transition to the SCHEELS team upon graduation.
Now an Athletic Expert, Levin has brought that hard-working mentality to her work at SCHEELS. Not only that, she has continued to put physical and mental wellness as a top priority. In 2021, she is looking to accomplish a goal that may throw some people. Levin wants to drink more water this year, but the benefits of staying hydrated are endless.
Levin has felt the difference in staying hydrated already. “One of my big goals for 2021 is to simply drink more water,” she said. “The effects it has on my body are very noticeable, I feel better during the day, it benefits me during the day and really helps me relieve my stress throughout the day.”
While hydration is a key to 2021 for Levin, it is also finding where her weaknesses lie. Whether that be in fitness or in life, Levin states that taking personal inventory is vital to wellness. Being able to identify weaknesses can lead to them becoming strengths if acted upon properly.
“A lot of my weaknesses come from things outside of my comfort zone, but that is where I have found most of my strength,” she said. “I found it inthings that I thought I couldn’t do but I pushed through and found out who I am and what I’m capable of.”
