THE REC. POOL WILL CLOSE TEMPORARILY IN OCTOBER
CONSTRUCTION BEGINS OCTOBER 20TH

imgOur recreational pool will be closing temporarily in late October for re-plastering. We will remove all the old tile and plaster and install new tile & re-plaster the pool. The project will take approximately two weeks to complete. Briefly here is what will happen:

  1. We will close the pool the day before construction begins to prepare for the project. We will install a fence around the pool to insure safety.
  2. The lap pool will remain open during construction. We ask swimmers to please share lanes during the project.
  3. On October 21st, our contractor will begin removing the plaster & tile using a jack hammer. (The demolition process creates dust, so please be prepared.)
  4. After demolition the contractor will install new tile and will re-plaster the pool.
  5. After the plaster is applied we will immediately start filling the pool with water.
  6. We will have the Health Department approve the completed project.
  7. After approval we will re-open the pool. It may take a few days for the pool to return to the normal temperature.

We apologize to our swimmers for the inconvenience. This project was required by the County of Ventura. The good news is we will have a beautiful new pool when it’s done! Thanks for your support and understanding.

TENNIS NEWS

The Fall has finally hit us and now we are getting cooler weather! That heat wave a few weeks ago about got the best of me, but now I am ready to rock and roll! I am very excited about the Interclub season and also very excited about our new Junior USTA league that is starting up in a few weeks. Things are busy at the club and we would love to get new members involved with our junior and adult leagues. We should have something for everyone! I also hope many of you are signing up for the upcoming JM Elizalde Tournament. It should be a great time! We also have great clinic for juniors and adults this fall.

NOW IT’S YOUR TURN!

The first DREAM JEANS CHALLENGE took place in 2011. Month after month this challenge has helped many of our members (men too!) fit into their dream jeans in just eight weeks. Each time we run the challenge, members commit to following the simple nutrition recommendations and working out 3-4 days a week. The last day of the challenge is always a blast with everyone flaunting their new size!

Mark your calendar to join the next DREAM JEANS CHALLENGE the last week of October and invite your family and friends to join you because non-members are welcome also.

What should you expect?
  • During the eight weeks you will be challenging yourself each day and each week to build new behaviors and change old habits until they are part of your daily regimen.
  • It will be “challenging” at first, hence called a challenge, because it is new, but after the first 30 days your new behaviors will become a way of life.
  • This challenge is very different because it allows for some flexibility. The first research study to evaluate self-regulation with weight loss and weight maintenance over two years showed that one of the keys to sustained results is to end emotional eating (the “on” and “off” pattern you may know well) and instead allow flexibility to realistically be able to stick to your new lifestyle long term. You’ll learn about the 90% rule and how to enjoy your 10% to splurge when you choose to.
  • The challenge is your kick start to changing your behaviors including your exercise, nutrition, and above all your thinking differently for the long term, beginning your lifetime journey as the new you.

This challenge has been the catalyst for many of our members to reach their potential both physically and mentally. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn more, challenge yourself and set yourself a motivating goal to accomplish! Questions? Contact Fitness Director Danielle Williams at 818-219-4835.

INTERESTING AND FUN FITNESS FACTS

imgWith Fitness Director Danielle Williams

  • Fitness consists of 4 components: 1) The body’s ability to use oxygen as a source of energy. 2) Muscular strength. 3) Endurance. 3) Flexibility/body composition.
  • It is estimated that only 22% of American adults participate in regular, sustained physical activity for at least 30 minutes 5 times a week.
  • On average, it takes about 12 weeks after beginning to exercise to see measurable changes in your body.
  • Approximately 25% of American adults are sedentary
  • No matter how poor your current level of fitness, you can start an exercise routine and become fitter and healthier at any time.
  • Walking at a fast pace burns almost as many calories as jogging for the same distance.
  • The word ‘gymnasium’ comes from the Greek word “gymnazein”, which literally means “to exercise naked.”
  • It is scientifically suggested that walking at a fast pace for 3 hours or more at least one time a week can reduce your risk for heart disease by up to 65%.
  • Just adding any type of movement into your daily routine can increase your level of overall health and wellbeing.
  • Strength training involves training both the muscles and the nervous system. Together, they make what is called the “neuromuscular system.”
  • Men who workout with a female partner are shown to lift heavier weights and get better results.
  • To lose one pound of fat, a person has to burn roughly 3,500 calories.
  • When the body is at rest, it takes in about 10 litres of air per minute.
  • There are over 640 muscles in your body.
  • Muscle is about three times more efficient at burning calories than fat, even when at rest.
  • You should always breathe correctly when exercising. It is said that underwater swimming is the only time you should hold your breath during physical activity.
  • Since your brain is distracted by what you are hearing when you listen to music, you don’t concentrate on what you are lifting. This causes you to lift more weight.
  • Exercise is more effective at increasing your energy levels than caffeine.
  • Most American models are thinner than 98% of American women.
