Member Testimony: Best Group Fitness Classes in Chicago!
“I’ve been a member of Lakeshore Sport & Fitness for over six months and applaud the desk, owner, staff, instructors and cleaning staff that welcome all members.  I sincerely appreciate the hands-on customized assistance each instructor gives to students during the class.  No matter what your level, Joanna, Melissa, Brendan, Tatiana, TonE and all the instructors, guide you according to your level of ability. This is the first place in over ten years of paying for health clubs where I feel there’s exercise formats for everyone with down-to-earth staff and instructors.  From barre class and weight training to yoga to pool to outdoor activities to wall climbing, there’s all types of exercise that fit your needs.  After six months of going to Lakeshore for just 3-days a week, I have a great new energy level.  I highly recommend Lakeshore Sport & Fitness!” – Laurie O.

Thanks Laurie! We love our group fitness class too. Need help deciding what group fitness class is best for you? Please reach out to MarceloE@LakeshoreSF.com.

Physical Therapy for Vertigo!
Vertigo is the sensation of spinning or that the room is moving around you. There are a number of conditions that can lead to vertigo; inner ear disorders, migraines, tumors, head injuries or stroke. In most cases, the cause of vertigo involves the inner ear, part of the vestibular system (your body’s balance system). It uses the organs of your inner ear to relate to your brain where your head and body are in space to keep your eyes focused and body stable.  One of the most common causes of vertigo is Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). BPPV is an inner ear disorder that produces short periods of spinning when your head is in a certain position. BPPV occurs when tiny crystals in your ear are dislodged and move into another part of the ear (semicircular canals) where they are not supposed to be. Physical therapy can be quite effective in treating BPPV.  The therapist will conduct a series of positional tests to determine which inner ear is the culprit and which of the six semicircular canals is involved.   Specific head motions or maneuvers to reposition the crystals within the inner ear are then performed to relieve the symptoms of vertigo. Oftentimes, patients experience relief after just one treatment.  Successful rehabilitation also includes balance exercises to help strengthen your vestibular system.

Lakeshore Sport & Fitness is fortunate to have the experienced physical therapists of Lakeshore Physical Therapy on site at both locations.  Click here for more information or to schedule an appointment:  www.lakeshore-pt.com

Benefits of Summer Camp for a Child!

We all know that camp is fun, but did you know there are actually psychological benefits of sending your child to Summer Camp too?  A study done by the American Camp Association found that children who participate in summer camp have an increased sense of independence, willingness to try new things, and appreciation for individual differences.  Camp Lakeshore officially begins on June 3rd, so register today and watch your child grow, laugh, and learn!  Check out our Camp Brochure for a full list of offerings and email LPCamp@LakeshoreSF.com for more information.

Make the Most of Side Stepping!
Weakness of the hip abductors is quite common and often present with hip impingement, iliotibial band syndrome, patellofemoral syndrome and chronic ankle sprains.  One popular hip abductor strengthening exercise is side stepping with a resistive band. It is important to note that muscle activity of the gluteus medius (gathered via electromyograph) is higher in the squat posture compared to the upright posture.  The muscle activity is also higher in the stance leg than the moving leg. 

When performing the exercise, try to squat and maintain the squat position while side stepping for the best glute workout.  View the full research article here:  https://www.jospt.org/doi/pdf/10.2519/jospt.2015.5888.

Club Improvement Update!
A Note From our Lighting Experts, SportsInteriors – dramatic difference!
After a successful tennis court lighting transition, our vendor and installer, SportsInteriors, followed up with us to let us know that in our first reading, we showed a 42% increase in light level readings. They were quoted as saying the following:
“With this conversion, we can safely say Lakeshore has the highest quality tennis lighting of any club in Chicago. The results were at or above expectations. Besides the dramatic increase in light levels, you will also see a very nice decrease in light variance. This shows that the new lights have a much better lumen distribution providing a higher quality of even lighting throughout the court. Another benefit is the quality of light, while that is not captured on the light meter, your players will all experience a much cleaner, whiter light quality that will further enhance the perception of light level increases. This quality increase allows players to pick up the ball easier and improve their playing experience.”

New Furniture at Harvest Restaurant on the Roof!
Take a peek at the brand new dining room and bar furniture for Harvest! We can’t wait to see you and yours enjoying dinner and some sunshine with the best views of Chicago!

The 3.0 LSF Travel Team seals victory vs CPAC (E) in CITA league play!
It was a tight final with both teams very evenly matched. The matches in the final were so close it only took a few points at the crucial moments to take the title.

LSF 3.5 Woman’s CITA travel team has won the League Championship!

In an outstanding effort in the play-off and regular season our players were the team to beat and had a challenge on their hands as the top team. After a close semi-final, winning it with a tie-breaker, LSF moved into the finals on 5/8 at host site Glenbrook Racquet Club against River Trails Tennis Center. With some extremely exciting and hard fought matches LSF wins the league Championship CUP!

The 4.5 LSF Woman’s travel team WON what most of the city calls “The Fullerton Classic.”

This is when Lakeshore competes against Midtown in CITA league play.

It was an ultra-competitive final, with both teams neck and neck all the way through. As the matches progressed, LSF eventually came out with the victory after 2 1/2 hours. The final score being 4 matches to 2 matches to win the Championship Cup!

Focus on Your Fitness This Summer!

“1 Goal” Challenge is Back

Summer is right around the corner and the PT360 team is ready to help you focus and achieve your summer fitness goals!   Introducing our 3rd annual 1 GOAL challenge.   In this challenge you get to decide on your own goal.  If you achieve the goal you win a prize, it’s that simple!  

In this program, you get four 1-on-1 personal training sessions.  You also get to choose between three optional group sessions each week. The choices will be between a strength, flexibility, and endurance class.  You can switch it up every week if you like, or stick with the same class. It’s your choice!

Do not limit your goal to weight loss, or muscle gain.  Can you carry a bag of groceries up a flight of stairs without being winded?  Can you touch your toes?  Can you do a handstand?   We can help you with all these goals!  The best part about it is that you can win prizes for doing so! 

For more information please email PT360@LakeshoreSF.com.

Make the Most of Side Stepping 

Weakness of the hip abductors is quite common and often present with hip impingement, iliotibial band syndrome, patellofemoral syndrome and chronic ankle sprains.  One popular hip abductor strengthening exercise is side stepping with a resistive band. It is important to note that muscle activity of the gluteus medius (gathered via electromyograph) is higher in the squat posture compared to the upright posture.  The muscle activity is also higher in the stance leg than the moving leg. 

 

When performing the exercise, try to squat and maintain the squat position while side stepping for the best glute workout.  View the full research article here:  https://www.jospt.org/doi/pdf/10.2519/jospt.2015.5888

Are you Suffering from a Weak Core?  Try our Pilates reformer classes!

Exercising on the Pilates Reformer requires proper form and technique. The focus of proper positioning is within the core, your abdomen and lower back muscles. By conditioning the core muscles, they will contract with all movements to stabilize and align your spine. A strong core will increase the effectiveness of all exercises due to your ability to maintain proper alignment. Core strength increases your ability to generate power to your muscles and decreases the risk of injury.  Contact LPPilates@LakeshoreSF.com for more information.

 

Our Massage Therapists Can Help You Become More Flexible!

For athletes and non-athletes alike, massage can improve the range of motion and flexibility of your muscles.  Massage helps to stimulate blood circulation around your muscles, which increases the flow of oxygen and nutrients to your muscles, leading to increased flexibility among other benefits. Email LPSpa@lakeshoresf.com for more information or book your service on the MyLSFApp, go to Bookings -> Spa.

  • A comprehensive body scan, using our InBody machine, to measure muscle mass and body fat, identify areas of weakness and opportunity
  • A full movement screening to check form, so exercises can be prescribed based on test results to correct weakness or imbalance.
  • A cardiac output test to measure cardiovascular fitness levels.
  • A conversation to better understand your fitness goals

The consultation is scheduled with one of our certified personal trainers matched with you based on your preferences, fitness background, and schedule. After the consultation, you and your trainer schedule a complimentary 60-minute workout to begin the process of achieving your goals.

Taking advantage of these services can be an excellent way to begin (or continue) getting into the best shape possible, learn new exercises or modalities to switch up your workout routine, and make sure you’re getting the most out of your membership.

Ice vs Heat: A Hot (or Cold) Topic!?
One of the questions we most commonly field when patients have first sustained an injury is “Should I ice it, or would heat be better?” Both heat and ice are conservative, beneficial modalities, but to better understand the benefits of either, look at the physiological effects of each in Lakeshore Physical Therapy’s recent blog post (http://lakeshore-pt.blogspot.com/).

Insurance Accepted at Lakeshore Physical Therapy
With locations in both Lakeshore Sport & Fitness clubs, Lakeshore PT is easily accessible and convenient for your treatment.  Equally beneficial is the fact that physical therapy is a covered benefit through most health insurance plans.  Lakeshore PT is ‘in-network’ with BlueCross and BlueShield, Aetna, UnitedHealthcare, and Medicare.  That means the clinic is a preferred provider and the member usually pays less for services.  If you have an insurance coverage question about your specific plan, please stop by the clinic and we are happy to share our expertise.  IC location: 312-801-8440.  LP location: 773-770-2419.
