The official workout program of the Patriots Cheerleading Squad is BMAX (bmaxstrong.com). “It’s a perfect fit for their on-the-go schedules because you don’t need machines and it can get done in less than 30 minutes. Plus it delivers cardiovascular health, flexibility, muscular strength, muscular endurance, and body composition,” says squad trainer and BMAX creator Andy Berler.

4 BMAX workouts per week that include:

  • 3-minute dynamic warmup
  • 18 exercises: (dynamic, compound, and static moves) for 30 seconds on, 30 off
    core chiseler: 5 core moves for 50 seconds on, 10 off
  • On rest days: one day off and one day cardio, including running outside, on a tread climb, or their favorite class.

“We love to incorporate the Gillette Stadium ramps and stairs into training. We also have access to a running trail, a cycling studio, and the company gym on the grounds,” says Tracy Sormanti, director of cheerleading.
