Club Communication

Keeping Healthy in Cold and Flu Season
With our medical advisors, we have been working on the best way to handle the Covid19 and strong influenza season. While there is a lot of talk about Covid19, it is important to put things in perspective and not panic.  Covid19 does have a higher mortality rate than the traditional flu but is still much lower than other viruses like SARS, and Covid19 seems to have more mortality consequences for those with respiratory challenges.  We will see many cases of Covid19 in our community, just like we have seen many cases of the flu. 
The single best way to protect yourself is regularly washing your hands with soap for 20 seconds or longer, followed closely by avoiding touching your eyes, nose, ears or mouth. At LSF, we are working hard to ensure the club is as clean as possible: we are deploying extra personnel to disinfect areas such as doorknobs, railings and weights. In addition, we have acquired new cleaning chemicals and equipment to help clean more challenging areas such as children’s toys.  
To help maintain as clean an environment as possible, we need your help: please use the wipes we have in all studios and work-out areas to clean anything that you touch.  Please use the hand sanitizer regularly.  Please cover your mouth with your elbow if you need to cough or sneeze.  If you are not feeling well, please refrain from coming to the club.  If you have other thoughts or suggestions on how we can best help keep everyone healthy, please contact us at  

Connect with us on Social Media!
Every month we have a wide variety of events, activities and programming for members of all ages.  LSF utilizes Social Media and our MyLSF App to keep you informed and ensure that you have all the information you need at your fingertips! Stay informed about all the programming, events and updates by following us on Social Media.  This is where we will keep the most up to date information regarding happenings and updates in the club.

Fitness for All

Book your 30 min Stretch Session today – 50% Off Your First Visit!
Participating in a regular stretching program not only helps increase your flexibility and range of motion, but also it helps calm your mind. Improved flexibility helps you to perform everyday activities with relative ease and helps delay the reduced mobility that can come with aging. Stretching also helps to improve circulation and increase blood flow to your muscles, which can shorten your recovery time and reduce muscle soreness. Email to book your Intro Session. Get 50% off your 1st Appointment!

 Mind Body Exercise Through Pilates! 
Whether you are new to exercise, an elite athlete or somewhere in between, the foundations of Pilates movement apply to you. Building from core strength, focusing on proper alignment, and a body/mind integrative approach make Pilates accessible to all. With thousands of possible exercises and modifications, Pilates workouts can be tailored to individual needs. The core muscles of the body are the deep muscles of the back, abdomen, and pelvic floor. These are the muscles we rely on to support a strong, supple back, good posture, and efficient movement patterns. When the core is strong, the frame of the body is supported. This means the neck and shoulders can relax, and the rest of the muscles and joints are freed to do their jobs, not more. Contact for more info.
Featured Instructor – Ed Dailey

Ed Dailey has been a cycle and tread instructor with LSF for the past 7 years and loves bringing the training that he does outside the club to our members. He began racing triathlon in 1996 and is now a world ranked 16-time ironman, ultra-distance runner and mountain biker. He has now set his sights towards becoming a dietitian. “I always ask my classes to focus on their goals, paint a picture of what that looks like, hang it in front of them and now let’s go get it today.”

Imaging – A Closer Look

When we talk about injuries, we often hear of primary care physicians and orthopedic specialists performing imaging in order to assist patients in treating musculoskeletal pain. Imaging can include, but is not limited to, MRIs, X-rays, or CT scans. Although these tests may help feed our curiosity to “look under the hood,” they may not always be the best place to start.

It is important to remember that our bodies are more than a static picture. Positive imaging findings do not always mean pain, and pain does not always mean there is structural damage. This topic has been heavily researched, and we summarize some of those findings in our most recent blog post this month. To learn more on this topic, go check out our blog at!
