Congratulations to Josh Bushong, Actualize Sports Athlete of the Quarter!

Josh is a Senior scholar-athlete at Wenatchee High School. Lacrosse is his primary sport, playing Defender for both Wenatchee High School and the Seattle Starz Elite Lacrosse Team. Josh also brings his athleticism, tenacity and physicality to the Wenatchee High School Football arena.

 Josh first started working with Actualize Sports in November of 2017 as part of the yearly Off-Season Strength & Conditioning program Actualize administers for the Wenatchee Valley Lacrosse Club. During his nearly three years at Actualize, Josh has conducted team training and participated in an elite male high school and college group to maintain his edge year-round.
The result has been amazing progress across the board—transformation of body, strength, performance, speed, agility and conditioning, while also reducing his likelihood of injury. Josh has also matured into a confident and passionate leader who leads both by example and word. His teammates and training partners would surely attest that nobody is more determined nor works harder than Josh, and his example is infectious and calls others up to a higher place.

Josh’s parents (Jason and Jen) shared:
“We are so proud of Josh’s commitment to pursue his future as a student-athlete at the college level. We look forward to seeing his accomplishments on the lacrosse field and in the classroom. His focus during these trying times of a pandemic will reward him with great success in his future endeavors. We also want to thank Actualize Sports for providing professional caliber coaching in a safe environment for Josh to expand his physical and mental dedication to becoming a better athlete and human being.”
Josh plans on playing collegiate Lacrosse and is enjoying the recruiting process of visiting schools and exploring where his scholastic and vocational interests lie. He is particularly interested in studying aerospace or mechanical engineering. Wherever he ends up, he will quickly become a leader and asset to the Lacrosse team and school, and an encouraging presence to those who are fortunate to encounter his influence.
Josh, I can’t imagine you doing anything half-ass and in the pursuit of excellence. I can’t wait to see you put your hard work into action on the athletic fields this year and in life in the years to come. Proud of you! Coach Blaine
