As the new year comes around, many people start thinking of that perfect New Year’s resolution.  And one of the most common resolutions is health and/or exercise related.  This year, the Bay Club is helping members and staff focus on their health for 2019.

Sports and Activities Center Manager, Matt Beatty has put together a program entitled Winter of Wellness and the goal is overall self-improvement.

The program is team-based with one staff member heading a team of five Club members.  Individuals will earn points for their teams in a variety of ways, including exercising at the Fitness Center on their own or with their team, taking various fitness classes offered at the Club, personal training with our Fitness Trainers, attending a Wellness Lecture or Weekend Wellness Walks.  Matt will be conducting weekly Fitness Challenges and monthly Fitness Gram Tests.  And the Golf House restaurant is also joining in by offering special monthly heart-healthy dinners.

A total of 51 members and staff have signed on to be a part of this great program.  It runs through the end of March and the team with the most points at that time will be crowned the champions.

The competitive banter has already begun and everyone is excited to get started earning those points while improving their health!

New Fitness Equipment at the Bay Club

The Bay Club recently added some new Life Fitness cardio and strength equipment to the state-of-the-art Fitness Center.  The new Ellipticals, Treadmills and MJ4 have seen a great deal of use by the membership.  The MJ4 is a multi-faceted piece of equipment that enables  four members to train simultaneously with exercises including lat pull-down, tricep extension and seated row.

Bay Club Fitness Trainer, Matt Beatty suggests these particular exercises for golfers and tennis enthusiasts alike to help strengthen the upper body.

Lat Pull-down

The lat pull-down is a strength training exercise to develop the latissimus dorsi, rhomboid and trapezius muscles.  It performs the functions of downward rotation and depression of the scapulae, combined with adduction and extension of the shoulder joint.  This is a great exercise for posture and upper body strength.

Tricep Extension

The tricep extension, an isolation exercise, targets one muscle group with movement occurring at only one joint.  This allows exercisers to focus efforts on just the tricep muscle.  Other exercises work the triceps as secondary muscles, such as the chest press or push-up.

Seated Row

For beginners, the seated row develops muscles of the back and forearms.  It is an excellent all-round compound exercise for developing the middle back while offering useful arm work as well.

And lastly, the seated cable row works the back muscles in general, particularly the latissimus dorsi.  This pulling exercise also works the forearm and upper arm muscles, as the biceps and triceps are dynamic stabilizers for this exercise.  The hamstrings and gluteus maximus, also stabilizing muscles, come into play with this exercise as well.

Activity levels at the Fitness Center are a good indicator that the new equipment has been met with great enthusiasm from members looking to up their fitness game.
