ADULT SWIM CLASSES RecSports offers the Adult Learn to Swim class for non-swimmers and beginning swimmers. RecSports also offers the Stroke Development class for those who want to become a more efficient and stronger swimmer while learning new strokes and improving technique. Visit the Aquatics page at recsports.ufl.edu for more information. SWIM CLASS INSTRUCTION SCHEDULE ADULT LEARN TO SWIM STROKE DEVELOPMENT

7 PM, 7:30 PM OR 8 PM 8:30 PM

• Classes are Monday & Thursday nights at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center Pool. • Each class is 30 minutes long. REGISTRATION Email aquatics@recsports.ufl.edu, each week to register for a class, with the subject line titled Swimming Instruction by Thursday of the previous week. Please include desired time, date and class title. You will receive a confirmation email by 3 p.m. on the Friday before the class. Space is limited.

TAKING THE PLUNGE The RecSports Aquatics program offers several different swimming classes that range in expertise from beginner to advance. Taught by certified instructors, the classes will teach you how to swim for the first time or help you improve your technique. Classes are held at the O’Connell Center Pool and are available for free to students, faculty and staff with a valid Gator 1 Card. Brittany Jesewitz, a fourth year Health Science major, has been a RecSports Lifeguard and Water Safety Instructor for three years. Her background as a high school water polo player and a swim team coach enables her to successfully train each participant and help them meet their goals. “Everyone that comes to class has the same goal of getting better; no participant will be judged by their instructor or other swim students,” Jesewitz said. “We have instructed participants that have deep inherent fears of the water and we help coach them through the process, standing by them and the courage it took to show up in the first place.” Classes can range from one to eight participants depending on how many sign

up that week. The small group environment provides the one-on-one instruction needed to be successful. The instructors are able to tailor the lesson to each individual’s needs. “Although the classes are in groups, the lesson itself is individualized and focuses on the goal that the participant wants to achieve,” Jesewitz said. “Participants’ goals range from just swimming comfortably enough not to feel like they are going to drown to learning a flip turn or even training tips for a triathlon.” Kelly Livingston, an Accounting Coordinator II for the College of Medicine, is a swim student who began her first Adult Learn to Swim Lesson in October. She has found success in her swimming efforts and has moved on to the Adult Stroke Clinic to learn new techniques and swim strokes. “I was nervous going to the first lesson and seeing the swim club and others practice was quite intimidating, but I took the plunge and followed through,” Livingston said. “The instructors were very professional and were able to help folks of all skill levels. At no point did they make me feel embarrassed for my lack of swimming skills.”

After only two months of taking the swim instruction classes, Livingston has begun training for a sprint distance triathlon in Ocala this March. “I never could have advanced so quickly without the help of the instructors, their relaxed attitude gave me the confidence to continue,” Livingston said. “Going to the lessons and getting feedback from the instructors has improved my stroke significantly and has given me the knowledge I needed.” Whether you are wanting to learn how to swim for the first time, learn a new stroke, or improve your technique, take the plunge and sign up for a swim class!

WOMEN’S WATER POLO The reigning Southeastern Conference champion Women’s Water Polo club is currently nationally ranked after last year’s undefeated regular season. Among last season’s successes was a 5-0 record at Notre Dame’s annual Irish Invitational which included a win over Carthage College, a Division III team. The Gators continued to pummel the competition, defeating conference rival UCF in all three match-ups. The Gators earned a spot in the National Collegiate Water Polo Association National Championships where they finished 5th overall. Highlights from the fall semester included the Gators hosting the annual Fall Classic Tournament at the Florida Pool. Several teams from in and out of state participated in the event in which the Gators finished undefeated for the second year in a row. This season, the team looks to continue its dominance within the Southeastern Conference and make a return trip to the national tournament. The team looks promising with many returning players and a strong freshmen class ready to blow the competition out of the water.

MEN’S ULTIMATE The Men’s Ultimate club was founded in 1982, 14 years after the invention of the sport in New Jersey. In 2006, Florida burst onto the College Ultimate scene, earning its first bid to Nationals and capturing the College National Championship. Since then, Florida has been one of the most competitive ultimate programs in the country, with National Championships in 2006 and 2010 and a top 4 finish in four out of the past six years. The Men’s Ultimate club has grown to over 70 members, divided into A, B and C teams. Last year, the B team brought home the first ever B Team College National Championship. This year, Men’s Ultimate kicked off the fall semester by hosting the Gainesville Fall Classic (GFC) October 15-16. Teams from Tallahassee, Tampa, Orlando and Gainesville competed in this tournament. The GFC featured eight teams playing six games each offering an early look at several college squads who will compete for a bid to the Southeast Regional Tournament in April and potentially College Nationals in May. Florida A team completed a perfect 6-0 record for the weekend, defeating the Florida A alumni team in the finals. Men’s Ultimate is off to a great start, but still looking to improve. Both the A and B team rosters consist of many young players, including first-year captains on both squads. It will be a challenge preparing new members to compete against some of the most experienced and skilled college players in the nation. The club’s mission is to elevate its teams to the top tier of college ultimate with an overall goal of winning Nationals in May.

SWIMMING The Swimming club has been active since 2003 and became an official sport club in fall 2011. The Swimming club is a competitive swim club made up of former competitive swimmers as well as new swimmers. The club has experienced great success in recent years finishing second at Nationals in 2008, 2009 and 2011 as well as first place in 2010. Club Swimming has continued the trend this year as both the men’s and women’s teams went undefeated in the fall. The club dominated at the University of Georgia relay and sprint meet in October. The Men’s and Women’s team took first and second place respectively while the team won overall first place. Club Swimming is on track to qualify for nationals and has positioned itself as a top contender to win it all.

SKIMBOARDING CLUB The Skimboarding club has been active since 2007 and became an official sport club in the spring of 2010. The club holds meetings, beach trips and competes in the National Collegiate Skimboarding Association, which fosters the participation, growth and competitive nature of the sport. On November 19, the club attended the first contest of the year in Deerfield Beach to prepare for Nationals this April in Vilano Beach, FL. The Skimboarding club focuses not only on competition, but also community outreach projects. The club works closely with PEW Research Group and its effort to stop long-line surface fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. On November 11, the club hosted the first ever Tarp Surfing Event at the Broward Outdoor Recreation Complex. The event provided students with an opportunity to experience the feel of beach waves while not leaving Gainesville. The club plans to hold this event again this spring.

MEN’S RUGBY The Men’s Rugby team was founded in 1969 and plays at a Division I level in the Southeastern Collegiate Rugby Conference. The club is currently ranked 4th in D1-AA Collegiate Rugby. Men’s Rugby went undefeated in the fall, capturing 1st place at the Florida Cup Tournament in November. The club has also been invited to play in the 2012 Collegiate Rugby Championships in Philadelphia this June. Men’s Rugby also focuses on giving back to the community by giving blood. The club held recordbreaking blood drives with Life South in the fall.

TAKE ON THE NEW YEAR When you work at a gym there is a universal rule that everyone follows: nobody takes off January 1. Anyone familiar with New Year’s resolutions should understand the importance of this rule. January 1 is the busiest day of the year for the fitness industry. Tons of bright eyed, newly passionate, fitness enthusiasts flood the gym with newfound intensity and Nike Frees. By midFebruary the novelty has worn off and those once passionate enthusiasts have developed a chronic case of shin splints from the treadmill. So how do you break the cycle and make 2012 your most successful year for your health and wellbeing? Two words: goal setting. Developing clear and concise goals will help you maximize your results and ensure that you stay on track in 2012. I realize by just saying the words “goal setting” you are not going to jump right out of your seat and into the frontline of the Boston Marathon. I have outlined some simple and applicable tips on how to set realistic goals for 2012: Jason Vlastaras Personal Training Program Assistant

1. Try setting goals that are event specific This year, instead of saying you want to lose ten pounds, try signing up for a half-marathon. You can always push back the date of when you want to lose ten pounds, you cannot push back an event. In addition, when you finish your event you will feel far more accomplished and most likely see the physical changes you were originally seeking.

2. Set setting an “ultimate” for event yourself 1. Try goals goal that are specific Also include several smaller goals for you to accomplish along the way. As you complete each smaller goal you will gain confidence and build “results momentum.”

3. Visualize where you want to be Visualization is a common tool used by high-level athletes. Simply see yourself completing your goal, then go into detail. How will you feel, what will your fitness level be, what will you look like?

4. Do not negotiate with yourself How many times have you set the alarm so you can get up early before class and workout? Four snooze buttons later you have missed your timeframe and your workout. The hardest part about working out is just getting to the gym, everything else is icing on the cake.

achieve your event-based goal planning this Spring with Recsports

1. SIGN UP! Sign up for one of our new Small Group Training class: Strong Gator Training, Triathalon Training or New Year, New You.

5. Write it down! Set goals that are specific and attainable, then put it on “paper.” Tell your friends, post it on facebook, tweet about it. Make your goals known, establish accountability with yourself and others.

MASSAGE TYPES DEEP TISSUE

ORTHOPEDIC

Deep Tissue Bodywork is applied with the intention of accessing the deeper layers of the body. Pressure is applied to resisting points in the body until the resistance is released. Deep Tissue Massage helps with chronic pain and injury rehabilitation.

Orthopedic Massage involves therapeutic assessment, manipulation and movement of soft tissue to reduce pain and dysfunction. The focus is on restoring structural balance throughout the body to promote both prevention and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal dysfunctions.

SWEDISH

SPORTS

Swedish Massage is a vigorous system of treatment designed to energize the body by stimulating circulation. The strokes, all flowing toward the heart, are used to manipulate the soft tissues of the body. Therapists use a combination of kneading, rolling, percussive and tapping movements, with the application of oil, reducing friction on the skin. Swedish Massage benefits include generalized relaxation, dissolution of scar tissue adhesions, and improved circulation, which may speed healing and reduce swelling from injury.

Sports Massage is designed to enhance athletic performance and recovery. There are two contexts in which Sports Massage can be useful to an athlete: pre-event and post-event. Pre-event massage is delivered at the performance site to establish blood flow and warm up the muscles. Post-event massage serves to calm the nervous system and begin the process of flushing toxins and waste products out of the body. Post-event massage can reduce recovery time, enabling an athlete to resume training much sooner than rest alone would allow.

STRENGTH & CONDITIONING OLYMPIC LIFTING The Strength and Conditioning program offers Olympic weightlifting at the Southwest Recreation Center. Complete with Olympic lifting platforms, racks, bumper plates and chalk, the Olympic lifting area is a controlled space where students who meet specific criteria may perform Olympic-style lifts. Olympic weightlifting is a ground-based barbell sport in which one attempts to lift heavy weights for full body development. Two lifts, the Snatch and the Clean & Jerk, are performed by driving against the ground, putting the body into triple extension, driving the body under the weight and “catching” the weight in the final position. WANT TO TEST OUT? Any student/member who has a sound background in Olympic weightlifting is encouraged to test out and utilize the Olympic lifting platforms. In order to pass the practical test, one must correctly perform a Front Squat, Overhead Squat, Deadlift, Clean & Jerk and Snatch as evaluated by a RecSports Professional Fitness Staff member. Olympic lifting hours, test-out criteria and test-out appointment times can be found on the Strength and Conditioning page at recsports.ufl.edu.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS I really enjoy personal training at UF because my trainer not only focuses on the mechanics of training during the session but also encourages me to set and actively work towards goals so I am always moving forward. He is also really good at modifying and adapting the intensity, types and duration of exercises so that I’m always getting the best workout and at the same time not getting tired of the same exercises. Personally, I find it hard to get out of bed and make it to the gym every day. I lack motivation, and I get bored working out on my own. Getting a trainer was great! Not only does she provide the motivation I need to be active and healthy, but she has become a good friend and a great work out buddy!

My trainer has instilled in me an appreciation for a holistic approach to health that includes attending to fitness, diet and emotional wellbeing. Capitalizing on my love for competition, he strives to motivate me via short-term goals during each session as well as by helping me implement and monitor my progress toward longer-term fitness goals. His approach to personal training is demanding yet also stimulating, inspiring and personable making each session a very rewarding accomplishment on the journey to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

FRATERNITY BROTHERS TO BLOOD BROTHERS The 5v5 Intramural Sports basketball league draws interest from students, faculty and staff. There are several different leagues including Men’s and Women’s Competitive, Men’s and Women’s Recreational, Co-Rec, Fraternity, Sorority and Graduate/Faculty/ Staff. The University of Florida Intramural Sports program has seen some extremely talented basketball players. Two teams have consistently showcased their talents on championship night, Zeta Beta Tau and Seitz Union. Erik Tarrash, the captain of the Zeta Beta Tau (ZBT) team, has competed for two years in the Intramural Sports basketball league’s Fraternity division. He has helped lead the team to an overall Fraternity League Championship by beating the Tau Epsilon Phi (TEΦ) fraternity in 2010. ZBT has won three of the last four Fraternity Blue League Championships since 2008 and Tarrash believes that it is due to how close the brotherhood is and how much chemistry they share even before stepping on the court. “We’re all close friends so we play pickup basketball games at Southwest Recreation Center whenever we can, this is probably

where we develop most of our chemistry to produce on the court during games considering we don’t have any team practices,” Tarrash said. “Not only do we become closer as a team by playing in the league and sharing memories together, but with the large audiences that we draw to games, it helps bring our fraternity closer together as well as tie the Greek community together.” From fraternity brothers to blood brothers, Justin Seitz has won two championships in the Men’s Competitive League with his brothers Matt and Stephen Seitz. The three brothers are key factors to the success and consistency of their team, cleverly named the “Seitz Union.” “I’ve been playing basketball with my brothers ever since we were in diapers,” Justin said. “My dad played and coached in college, so we all loved the sport and played together growing up. We had so many intense games in our driveway and we probably took thousands of shots together late into nights keeping the neighbors awake.” Even though the three brothers have come together to form one of RecSport’s most

feared 5v5 Intramural Sports basketball teams in recent history, it does not stop the sibling rivalry from spilling over onto the court. “We do sometimes argue on the court, but overall the RecSports Intramural basketball league has brought us closer together,” Justin said. “We really support one another and want each other to do well. At the end of the day basketball is just a game and it is great to be able to spend time playing a sport you love with your brothers.” Both Justin Seitz and Erik Tarrash enter this year’s season with the hope of winning their respective championships. Each team has added new players, both expecting to be even more dominant than they were in years past. While registration is still open, be sure to sign up a team and attempt to dethrone these former champions. In addition to the normal Intramural Sports leagues, RecSports will be hosting the annual Swamp Shootout extramural basketball tournament. Whether you are looking for some high-level competition, a new outlet to socialize, or another way to stay healthy and fit, RecSports offers a league suitable for any skill level.
