REVISED LATE FEE POLICY
We have switched over to a new accounting and member
check-in program for the club. We feel this new system
will allow us to better serve the members and meet new
regulations. The system requires a late fee to be calculated
on the amount owed versus a flat fee as we have done in the
past. Starting in February late charges will be imposed on any
balance remaining unpaid after 30 days computed at 1.5%
per month (18% per year). If you have not already done so
we offer EFT so that your payment will automatically be made
to help avoid late fees. Any questions about your balance or if
you wish to have your account paid automatically by EFT please
contact our accounting office. Thank you.

GROUP EXERCISE
WELCOMES YOU TO 2014!
Group Exercise welcomes you to 2014! Now is a great
time to try a new class and/or re-visit other classes.
We offer a variety of classes from Cardio to Yoga to
Pilates to Qigong. If water is your love try our Aqua
Combo classes and Masters swim teams. All ages
are welcomed.
GROUP
EXERCISE
Wall PLank
Stand in front of a wall at arm’s length. Reach forward from your shoulders and
plant your palms on the wall, fingers wide, middle fingers pointing straight at the
ceiling. Firm your fingers into the wall and draw your navel back as you lengthen
the tailbone towards the floor. Lift your ribs from the pelvis. You want to work with a
natural lower back curve but an active belly.
Keep length in your spine as you begin to walk the legs back, folding at the waist,
and walking your hands down the wall. Eventually you’ll come to an L-shape as seen
here. If you can’t get there today without feeling pain or rounding in the lower back,
bend your knees and maintain the proper spinal alignment.
As you lift the navel and lower ribs into the body, reach long
through the tailbone and legs into the floor while reaching
the spine, arms and head towards the wall. Repeat for 10-20
breaths. Move to another pose after a few breaths.
If done properly, this tried-and-true asana can be excellent for
spinal traction and back health.

FITNESS
CROSSFIT 101
CrossFit is one of the fastest growing strength and conditioning programs today and is now being offered at
The Los Gatos Swim & Racquet Club as CrossFit LGSRC. It’s not a traditional, specialized training program
like doing isolated weight training for a certain muscle or aerobics, its a very tough workout. Here’s what you
should know before you get started.
What is CrossFit?
CrossFit Advantages
CrossFit combines strength training, explosive plyometrics,
speed training, Olympic- and power-style weight lifting,
kettle bells, body weight exercises, gymnastics, and
endurance exercise. By doing this, CrossFit targets
what it calls the major components of physical fitness:
cardiorespiratory fitness, stamina, muscular strength
and endurance, flexibility, power, speed, agility, balance,
coordination, and accuracy.
CrossFit workouts are highly intense and do not take a
long time to complete. You can get a great workout in a
short period of time. Athletes and ex-athletes will enjoy
the challenges of each WOD, as they are similar to sports
conditioning. Training the CrossFit way requires you to work out 3 to
5 days per week. The workouts are highly intense and
short, taking about 5 to 15 minutes to complete. CrossFit
workouts typically combine explosive exercises done in a
circuit format: One exercise follows right after the next, with
very little rest in between. The main CrossFit exercises
involve the whole body and include pushing, pulling, running, rowing, and squatting.
The CrossFit WOD
CrossFit LGSRC posts a Workout of the Day (WOD) on
its web site. Some of the WOD are specially named after
women or military heroes. The WOD changes each day and
there are a lot of them. And they can be quite demanding.
CrossFit LGSRC is not your typical fitness gym. You will not
see the endless supply of cardio equipment or resistance
machines, and members don’t perform their own personal
routines. Instead, it’s a warehouse-like facility where
the exercise equipment consists of a bunch of bumperplated Olympic weights, plyometric boxes, medicine balls,
dumbbells, and kettlebells. Pull-up bars, climbing ropes,
gymnastics rings hang from the pull up rig. The only cardio
equipment you’ll see are rowing machines. If you want to
run, hit the road of the surrounding area. The workouts
are completed in a group setting. Everyone does the same
WOD and it’s a different WOD every day.
There are a large number of WOD routines and they are
always changing. This adds to the excitement of each
CrossFit workout and decreases the risk of becoming bored.
Marathoners, triathletes, cyclists, and long-distance
swimmers should dedicate most of their training time on
their sport’s specific needs. However, CrossFit is a good
way endurance athletes can train with weights and not
interfere with their main objectives, due to the short amount
of time needed to complete each WOD.
Also, there are alternative CrossFit programs dedicated to
endurance sports, football, and gymnastics.CrossFit is a
good way for mixing up the common exercise routine by
providing variety.
CrossFit Bottom Line
Like most other exercise routines, CrossFit has advantages
and concerns. The workouts are fast-paced, challenging,
and constantly varied.
If you are healthy and can endure grueling workouts,
then give it a try. You will probably enjoy it, just like most
“Crossfitters.”
New CROSSFIT COACH - SARAH PIERCE
Coming from a high school and college sports background, Sarah’s competitive
nature fits in well with CrossFits perscription of intensity. Having spent years in
the old “Globogym” routine of cardio and abs, Sarah found CrossFit in late 2007. Sarah has competed in CrossFit events since 2008 and has consistently placed in
the top 10 female competitors in Northern California.
