Fitness Corner with Dr. Andre Acebo
Chiropractor and Strength Coach
With the new year, many of you are wanting to get in shape. But what does “In Shape” mean? Do you want to drop some body fat, gain some muscle or tone-up your body? How is your flexibility, balance, and cardiovascular health? Regardless of your health and fitness goals, be assured your diet, rest, and stress levels must be taken into account.
Here are some questions to ask yourself and some insights from those that have successfully gone before:
Why do you want to get in shape? Be specific: is it for health, appearance, or confidence reasons. Do you want a higher functioning body for sports or a rigorous lifestyle? Chances are it’s a mixture of many reasons. Name them and use them to stay motivated and on track.
What keeps you from sticking to your plan? Is it time, finances, fear of failure, hard work or injury? For every reason not to exercise or eat healthy, I promise you there is a solution. A solution that's unique to you.
How do I go about it? The gym, sports, outside physical activities? They all have their place. Your first priority is to find what you like, so you will continue to do it. Find healthy foods you enjoy for the same reason= sustainability (more on this later).
Researchers studying successful body transformers, have found these common traits: They Track: What they eat, their workouts, their progress, even their feelings! They are part of a Community: accountable to and encouraged by at least 1 other person. Usually, the more people the better. Their eating and training plans are Sustainable: meaning consistent, progress over the LONG haul. And they have the right Mindset: we become our most dominant thoughts. Think progress not perfection.
If you need help answering these questions? Or developing these personal strategies, we are here to help! Our Personal Trainers can walk you through each step of your fitness journey.
Give me a call or shoot me a text and I'll find the perfect trainer that's right for you!

4 Reasons Your Next Workout Should Be a Swim WOMENS HEALTH- BY WALTON & AMY ROBERTS
Getting into the pool generally connotes a relaxing tropical vacation or a cooling dip on a hot summer day. The concept of swimming laps, on the other hand, may evoke a very opposite feeling.
Don't let it! Swimming is awesome cardio, completely no-impact on your joints, and a calorie-torching total-body workout. It also stretches and lengthens your body—something your body probably doesn’t get enough of. Here is four reasons to start swimming:
You've heard this before: for optimal fitness, it’s essential to mix it up. And with swimming being so different from any other workout you put your body through in the gym, on the road, or in a studio, it's ideal for working muscles that have been unintentionally neglected. It’s a low-impact workout that gives runners, gym folks, and anyone that walks around or sits in a chair a break for the overworked and tired joints of your hips, knees and ankles.
2. Awesome Abs
That swimming can strengthen your arms, legs, shoulders, and glutes is obvious. Less so is the benefit it has on your core. "Water is 724 times denser than air and provides a constant and consistent resistance that forces the entire body to get involved in creating forward momentum," says Walton. The core, which holds everything together, gets amazing toning in the process, without a single crunch or sit-up.
3. A Stronger Heart
Swimming is a huge boon to your aerobic fitness, too. It forces your body to learn a new breathing pattern—being face down in water will do that pretty quickly. "By expanding the depth and volume of each breath, you're forcing the lungs and heart to process oxygen more efficiently," says Walton. Your heart muscle will literally grow stronger.
Swimming is a pretty great confidence booster, too. Learning or honing a new skill, overcoming the nerves associated with the potential risks, and finding the zone in which you're totally one with the water is extremely empowering. "Setting the goal to swim 25 yards [standard pool length] or more can be a life-changing experience.”
For our younger swimmers, now is the time to start back with some lessons to get ready for our warm summer months. Our pools are 80 and 85 degrees (plus or minus two degrees due to weather changes). Contact our club today to sign up for Private, Semi-Private and Group Lessons, Swim Team, Dolphin Explorer, Water Aerobics, and Master’s Programming.

What Will Make Me a Better Player?
As we start to get ready for the spring tennis season with renewed gusto and energy and as USTA leagues start up again, I thought we should revisit those fundamental tactics that may have gathered some rust since the cold and rainy weather may not have allowed us to put much time in on the courts these past few months. Since most of us have partners when we step on the court, take a look at the following strategies we all should work on to develop a better all-around doubles game.
- Will I improve my split-step (or do I even have one)? This move is one of the most basic moves in tennis and one of the most overlooked. Very few club players split-step; never mind doing it well. A short hop just before your opponent strikes the ball will help you get in balance; helps develop better anticipation, and a quicker first step to the ball. This is essential in the fast paced world of doubles.
- Will I play the net more? While many club doubles is played with the “one-up/one-back” formation, to be a great doubles team you have to learn to play the net as a team. It’s the easiest way to control the point (teams that hit the first volley typically win 70% of those points) and have a lot more fun!
- Will I Be More Active? Your job as a net person is to get inside the opponent’s head, typically by poaching and movement. No one wants to be embarrassed by being passed down the alley, but for every alley winner that gets by you, you’ll win a lot more points by poaching, controlling the middle of the court and forcing errors. Lose a point now and again down the alley, but win the match by being active.
- Will I Improve My Serve? In doubles, a great serve will keep your opponents off-balance and set up your partner for offensive volleys. Great doesn’t necessarily mean powerful. Accuracy and consistency are the most important aspects of a doubles serve.
- Will I Improve Your Return of Serve? Typically you won’t win points outright returning a serve. Attempting to, will lead to a lot of errors and give your opponents an easy “hold” of serve. You must make your opponents play the ball. Develop a slice return to keep the ball low and develop a “chip lob” over the head of the server’s partner to keep them off balance. Also, developing a plan for your return before you swing will typically enable you to get the ball back more consistently and back to the area of the court where you want it to land.
- Will I practice to hit the three winners? In higher level doubles, you’ll win most of your points with three shots: down the middle, at your opponent’s feet and over their head. Pounding your opponents with these high percentage shots enables you to control the points and the match more effectively.
Remember good doubles is a game of coordinated movements and positioning, but develop these individual skills and strategies and they’ll go a long way towards increasing your match winning percentage.
