The AIM Companies is pleased to welcome aboard a newly sponsored athlete. Twenty-two-year-old Alexandra Frisk is a hockey goalie from Langley, British Columbia, and presently studying in Alberta at Red Deer College, where she plays for the RDC Queens ice hockey team.
Among Alex’s many sport achievements, her most recent was being selected to play on the Canadian senior women’s inline (roller) hockey team. In June 2016, the world championship was held in Italy, where Team Canada took home gold in the final against Team USA.
Her fascination with the game began around the age of seven, when her dad taught her to play ice hockey. It wasn’t long before Alex was playing boys’ roller hockey and then on to girls’ hockey teams. “I’ve played all over North America on both American and Canadian teams,” Alex stated. Along the way, she received numerous accolades, including top goalie awards, a silver medal and a scholarship player award.
But her life hasn’t been only about school and hockey. Alex is also involved with her church, volunteering for mission trips in Guatemala and the Dominican Republic.
In the summer of 2015, Alex began using AIM products when she had to have her wisdom teeth removed by her dentist, Dr. Lanny Donald, Chairman’s Club Director. “I took BarleyLife before and after surgery. Everything went well, and there were no complications,” Alex explained. “I took BarleyLife three to four times a day for a week and recovered really fast.”
Along with helping the healing process, Alex found that her energy levels increased and her mind was more focused. “I decided to continue taking BarleyLife because I wasn’t taking any vitamins. I knew it also had a lot of other nutrients that would help me as a student athlete.”
In the fall, Alex returned to Alberta, studying pre-optometry and playing goalie for her college team that would go on to win the 2015-2016 ACAC championship. “I had also started taking the Sports Pack—Peak Endurance, ProPeas and Red Rush—to help me with the academic and athletic demands. They really made a difference. I was the top goalie.”
Unfortunately, like many students, Alex ran short of money and was unable to keep ordering AIM products. “My game changed completely, and I definitely noticed a decrease in my performance.”
This past summer, Alex worked two jobs, seven days a week, to save up for her studies and athletics. Her sponsor, Lanny Donald, gave Alex AIM products.
Now as an AIM-sponsored athlete, Alex Frisk is regularly provided the nutrition she needs to stay at the top of her game as she aims for the 2017 Team Canada Trials and the next world championship.
