Spring is here and our rooftop restaurant, Harvest, is gearing up for the season with an early season wine tasting. The event will happen regardless of weather.  Join us outside weather permitting or inside in Indoor Harvest free from the elements. From the family that supplies grapes to Cakebread, Far Niente, Duckhorn and Quintessa, join host, Ryan Hill, and taste his family’s’ award-winning wines! Learn how to taste wine like a winemaker and discuss why certain wines remain 100% estate and why others become award-winning blends. Seven wines and light bites will be served.

Masters Swim Team Wins Big at STATE!!!

Our very own Masters Swim Team took 3rd place at the ILMSA Short Course State Championships earlier this month. The team was comprised of swimmers ranging from 25-77 years of age competing. There were two individual high point trophy winners: Alex Fraser won the 30-34 age group and John Morrison won the 45-49 age group. There were a slew of 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishes including 3 coaches and our very own Group Fitness Director, Marcelo, with a 2nd place finish in the mile. Overall, the team was small, but very mighty! Visit our App or website to view the schedule of upcoming Master Swim practices so you, too, can get in on the action.

Club Improvement Update!

We will be working in May to change the lighting system over the tennis courts. This project will not only brighten the space for players, but will utilize lights that are more efficient and environmentally friendly.

The rooftop tennis courts will be getting a makeover!  Once the Chicago weather becomes a bit more consistent, we will schedule the re-surfacing of the outdoor tennis courts.  Enjoy tennis or pickleball outdoors this Summer!

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.

 

Triathlon Training – You’re One Stroke Away from Setting a Personal Best!

Triathlon season is upon us! Did you know we offer 1 hour adult one-on-one swim sessions ($75 for members and $110 for guest) as well as 1 hour triathlon level swim sessions ($90 for members and $130 for guest)?

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
