Everybody Plank Now!

Monday, 20. November 2017 15:36

This fall, Bay Club Sports and Activities Center Manager and Fitness Trainer, Matt Beatty put together monthly fitness challenges for the membership.  Members are able to complete these challenges in the Fitness Center with oversight by the staff or on their own in the comforts of home.  Each challenge provides a calendar of daily exercises, with occasional “rest” days throughout the month.

Currently, members and employees are planking away for the November “Planks-giving” challenge.  The purpose is to gradually increase plank times throughout the month culminating with a three-minute hold.  And Matt is keeping the competitive spirit alive with a leaderboard displaying the various times for all participants.  While the calendar is just a guide, especially for a plank newbie, many participants are no stranger to the exercise and have already exceeded that three-minute goal.  Matt suggests that beginners start off slowly and to focus on correct form as opposed to time.  A well-performed plank for a shorter period of time is better than risking injury with improper form for a longer plank.

Done properly, planks are a great exercise for the core. They engage multiple muscle groups simultaneously, help to improve balance and also aid in reducing lower back pain.

Last month, Matt’s Fitness Challenge tested participants’ upper body strength, and with December approaching, members and employees can be sure something interesting is in the works!

Bay Club Tasting Brings out the Cooks!

Monday, 6. November 2017 14:18

Tasting-BlogMembers put themselves to the test in the kitchen last month as they prepared their favorite dishes and shared them with fellow members at the Bay Club Tasting.  This popular event held at the Golf House restaurant drew a record number of chefs who served their treasured dishes.  Each chef earned themselves a coveted Bay Club apron, as well as the approval from the fellow members in attendance.  While this event was “just for fun” with no formal competition, there was plenty of pride eluding from all those adorned in their new aprons.

Members in attendance sampled a wide range of dishes, from breakfast items to soups, and appetizers to desserts.  Some of the prepared foods included Tuna Wontons, Beet Borscht, Fish.  Chowder, Shrimp Mozambique, Tiramisu and more. There was plenty of laughter and delicious food to satisfy all who came out for the event.
