Subject: Why You Should Make Friends with the Indoor Rowing Machine 

Club Fit Personal Trainer Candice O'Brien

Hi, I’m Candice O’Brien — Certified Personal Trainer, Spin Instructor, and Fit Coach at Club Fit Briarcliff.  I have over 20 years in the fitness industry.
My passion for running, and ONLY running for many years, led me to several injuries, due to overtraining and the fact that I NEVER stretched or cross-trained. As a single, working mother, there was no time for that stuff!!  While injured and not able to run, I joined a gym to do some strength training (recommended by a physical therapist).  It was at that time I decided to hop on a rowing machine as a warm up before moving on to weights.After five minutes, it became evident that there is more to this machine than meets the eye… it turned out to be my best friend!

Some of the benefits of rowing include:
• Increased strength and cardiovascular endurance
• Improved posture and core strength
• Low impact; ideal for all ages and fitness levels
• Burns tons of calories

Club Fit Member Spotlight: Nancy Brophy

September 28, 2018 by jeanne

Stronger Than Ever

By Jeremy Brown

 

Nancy Brophy has been a member of Club Fit since its earliest days and shows no signs of slowing down!

When Nancy Brophy first came to Club Fit back in 1973, it was a very different place than what it is today. “There were just six tennis courts and you didn’t have to be a member,” she recalled.

As the ’70s gave way to the ’80s, the trend of racquetball began to grow. Brophy, always eager to take on a new challenge, decided to give it a try. “I’d never heard of it, but I like to try anything new,” she said. “So I gave it a go and I’m still playing twice a week!”

Born and raised in Peekskill, Brophy says that she always had a high energy level, most likely inherited from her mother, and has remained active well into her adult years. “I play golf, tennis, and racquetball,” she says. “And I used to ski, although I don’t do that anymore.”

When she’s not playing hard on Club Fit’s racquetball courts (where she can still be found every Tuesday and Thursday), Brophy is working just as hard as the director, owner, and founder of the Tom Thumb Preschool in Mohegan Lake. Brophy founded the school 50 years ago in 1968 when her circumstances forced her to think outside the box.

“I was teaching at Copper Beech Middle School, and I was going to have a baby,” she recalls. “And the laws at that time were when women began to show, they had to take a year off. They couldn’t teach and be pregnant.”

Not wanting to stay idle, Brophy sought out a piece of land owned by her father and decided to start a school.

“I had a year off with nothing to do,” she says with a laugh. “And here I am today!”

During her half-century teaching the children in and around Mohegan Lake, Brophy has seen the kids she once taught grow up and come back to her school to enroll their own children.

“The special part of it is that every day the children are the challenge,” she says of the joys of teaching. “I have a wonderful staff, hundreds of people who’ve worked for me over the years. My teachers and staff make possible my dreams for children come true. I’ve had a great run and I’m still there every day!”

But, she says, “I don’t let anything interfere with racquetball!”

That commitment to her twice-weekly racquetball games is part of Brophy’s philosophy of staying active and keeping oneself in shape. In fact, she is so devoted to that philosophy that she makes physical education a key component of Tom Thumb’s curriculum.

“Even with my four and five-year-olds, I’m teaching them how to hold a racquet and hit the ball against the wall,” she says. “They love to do that. I also try and teach them how to putt. We have some artificial turf where we do putting. Kids should have physical education every day. And I’m afraid for this new generation because they’re not active enough.”

Brophy’s devotion to staying fit is part of what drew her to Club Fit, but it’s not the sole reason she’s remained a member for forty-five years. “It’s a great place to be,” she says simply. “They’re accommodating, the place is immaculate, and they throw wonderful parties for the members! They’ve got a lot of competition, as I do. And they’ve managed to stay afloat and keep getting better.”

Subject: Become a Stronger Runner — Build Strength, Stay Healthy and Run Faster

Club Fit Personal Trainer Leslie Schneider
Club Fit Personal Trainer Leslie Schneider

My name is Leslie Schneider. I am a Fit Coach and Personal Trainer here at Club Fit Briarcliff. I decided to offer a workshop on Strength Training for Runners since so many runners I encounter have suffered running related injuries including myself. Whether it is Achilles tendonitis, shin splints, or runner’s knee, all of these conditions can be practically eliminated with a regular strength training program designed with runners in mind.

I took up running myself in the early 1990s. I loved the ease of just putting on a pair of sneakers and taking off. It was made all the more fun by participating in 5ks, 10ks, half-marathons, and more. The high from a good run is the ultimate reward. And I don’t want to give it up.

Over the years I’ve dealt with various overuse injuries that came about due to weak or unbalanced muscles. I’ve learned that by incorporating specific strength training and agility exercises at least 2X a week you can continue running virtually injury free for years to come.

Club Fit Member Spotlight: Loretta Whipple

August 30, 2018 by jeanne

Still Going Strong

By Jeremy Brown


Loretta Whipple has been a member at Club Fit for four decades, and she’s showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

During the 1970s, while attending graduate school at West Conn, Loretta Whipple struck up a conversation with her professor about their extracurricular activities. The professor told her he was a member of Club Fit in Jefferson Valley and waxed rhapsodic about racquetball. Whipple was immediately intrigued. “I investigated it,” she said, “and joined up with a group of ladies who played racquetball there, loved it, and stayed with it for many years.”

Whipple started playing racquetball at Club Fit back in the days when there were still eight courts available and she and her husband quickly became very involved in the sport. “We soon got wrapped up in racquetball and played frequently,” said Whipple.

An active traveler and adventurer who has visited all 50 states, Whipple came to Yorktown from the small farming town of Peabody, Kansas. “I was a farm girl,” she recalled. “After school, I went home and gathered eggs, fed the chickens, milked the cows, all those sorts of things.” When she arrived in Yorktown and began teaching 5th grade at Crompond School. Whipple made sure to bring a little bit of her hometown with her. “Kansas’s birthday was always a special day in the class,” she said. “And for a number of years, I actually made a sheet cake in the shape of Kansas and decorated it with products or towns related to the state. It was always a special day!”

Whipple’s impact as a teacher was strong enough that remains in touch with three of her students who had her as a teacher back in 1966. “That was 52 years ago and today they’re getting ready to retire! As a teacher, that’s one thing that’s a lot of fun, to see students that I’ve had through the years come over and say, ‘Do you remember me, Mrs. Whipple?’ It’s nice that they acknowledge some of the things that we have interesting conversations about their lives today.

Although she retired in 2000 after nearly 40 years on the job, Whipple continued her adventurous ways. That same year, she and her husband, Fred, made the journey all the way to Churchill, Manitoba to view polar bears in their natural habitat. “We took a lot of pictures of the polar bears on the tundra,” she recalled. “And then I came back and went to different classes and made presentations with the pictures that we’d taken. It was a lot of fun!”

Today, Whipple remains as active as ever. She and her husband visit Club Fit three times a week, and more in the winter months. “We love the variety of programs,” she said. “They have the swimming pool, they have racquetball, they have tennis. They have so many different types of classes, from spinning to yoga and many others. Club Fit is a family-oriented club, but they also have programs for seniors and programs for teenagers. They appeal to a wide variety of people and it’s very exciting to be a part of that.”

During their visits to the gym, Whipple’s husband tends to work out in the aquatics center, while she herself takes classes or works with a personal trainer. “It’s just something that’s a part of our life,” she said. “It’s never a case of our feeling lethargic or saying, ‘We’re too tired to go today.’ Having the space in our day to go to the gym is just something that’s always there and we do it often!”

This sense of staying healthy and active is something that’s important to Whipple and something that she hopes other people take seriously. “There are a lot of people that don’t feel like they have the time to develop an interest in going to the gym,” she said. “Age is a factor that diminishes your agility, your flexibility, your balance. So when you’re participating in activities and having the help of the personal trainers, exercise really makes a difference in people’s lives. It keeps you healthy mentally as well as physically. I think it’s important, that’s the bottom line!”

September Fitness Member of the Month

Barbara Cochran is our Briarcliff Fitness Member of the Month for September 2018

 

Club Fit Member Barbara Cohen
Barbara Cochran is our Club Fit Briarcliff Fitness Member of the Month for September 2018

Barbara Cochran has been a member since 1993. One thing that she has learned about Club Fit is that it stays the same even as it changes, all while continuing to be a great health club. But the one constant is that everyone knows your name, there is always something new to try, it is clean with up to date equipment and professional staff.

Even on days when I may not want to work out — and it is work — I am greeted at the door, often by name, and the energy of fellow members gets me going.

I have always appreciated the fact that Club Fit offers new workout options and continually updates the programs. The original spin classes were held in a small studio with bikes that had three or four “clicks” to add resistance, while members listened to the instructor and music through their own headphone sets and radio setting. And we had to line up to sign up! Contrast that with the state of the art spin studio and equipment we have today!

But even if a spin class is no longer part of my cardio routine, I have found so many other options that meet my changing work out needs. TRX and Hoist Roc-It classes are quick and effective. There is always a new class or cardio machine to try with a willing staff to assist. Myzone is a great tool and I use it every day. I love the competitions and the motivation it provides me during my workouts.

My husband and I think of Club Fit as the health insurance that helps us maintain an active and healthy lifestyle. We both have bounced back from health challenges much faster because of our regular visits and workouts at Club Fit over the past 25 years.

Thank you Club Fit for your commitment to staying the same while always changing! I am honored to be Member of the Month.

Tiana is an excellent coach that has a tremendous understanding of fitness and movement patterns. She was able to modify each exercise to make it both safe and effective for me. Thank you for everything, Patrick”

The goals of the Training Challenge include losing weight, improving stamina and strength, and becoming the strongest version of yourself.  Keep an eye out for future challenges!
