WELCOME NEW MEMBERS MATTHEW, CALE, NANCY LYNN, CHRISTOPHER, KATE & CAMILLE ANGELELLI Primary Sponsor: Robert Bradshaw The Angelelli family relocated to the Beach from Suffolk late last year. Matt accepted a position as the division chief of psychiatry in Sentara Medical Group, and he is based out of Virginia Beach General. He is a University of Virginia graduate. He and his wife, Cale, are members of Cedar Point Country Club and Farmington Country Club. Matt served on the Board at Cedar Point and was President of

the Cedar Point Civic League for several years. Cale was born and raised in Charlottesville. She graduated from Boston College and when she is not busy taking care of her family, she volunteers her time with the Suffolk Junior League and various other non-profit organizations. The entire family enjoys time out on the water, golf, tennis and horseback riding.

CHARLES & SUSAN BARKER Primary Sponsor: The late Joshua P. Darden, Jr. Charles and Susan were both born in Norfolk and eventually moved to Virginia Beach. Both graduated from Princess Anne High School and were soon married after graduation. Charles continued his education at several local business schools, and also attended business classes at University of Michigan and Old Dominion. His continuing business interest led him to the General Motors Institute in Detroit and an outstanding career in the automotive business. In 2005, Newsweek named him “One of the Top Ten Import Dealers in the U.S.” and in 2006 he was named the “Time Magazine Dealer of the Year for Virginia.”

Mr. Barker started his auto career with the late Josh Darden of Colonial Chevrolet in Norfolk and eventually became president and CEO in 1976. He and Darden became partners in 1980 and went on to build the Colonial Auto Group consisting of eight franchises. In 1990, Charles went out on his own, and today has built the Charles Barker Automotive Group which enjoys one of the best reputations in Hampton Roads. He also had two dealerships in Florida and one in New York, but has since sold them. One of Charlie and Susan’s proudest accomplishments was establishing their “Champions for Kids Foundation,” which has given over $3,000,000 towards scholarships for all Virginia Beach High Schools, the Access College Foundation, and a multitude of other causes for children across Hampton Roads and Virginia. Charlie was named “First Citizen of Virginia Beach” in 2011. Charlie and Susan’s daughter, Alexis, who is a sophomore at the Benjamin School, reside in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

Princess Anne Living - March/April 2014


Your PACC Operations Team and Pool Committee have been working hard in the off-season to get ready for an exceptional summer season. Brian Triolet, our new aquatics director, has been searching high and low to build an excellent staff of coaches, lifeguards and pool managers and has put together an extraordinary team of coaches for the 2014 summer season. Our head coach for swimming is Allison Mickunas. Allison has been a dedicated member of the PACC Operations Team since 2009 fulfilling many roles including assistant swim coach, assistant manager, swim instructor and lifeguard. Allison is currently the head swim coach at Salem High School. Allison will be assisted by Becca Jones, whose passion and knowledge of swimming is unequivocal. Becca swam for Auburn from 2009-2013 where she was captain of her team, a NCAA Division I All-American and USA National, World Championship and an Olympic Trials qualifier. Becca is currently in the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program at New York University. Our head dive coach will be our very own Katie Shafer who has been our assistant dive coach since 2010. Katie is a former Radford University Diver where she holds the school records for both one and three-meter diving. She is currently at ODU completing her masters in elementary education. Kate Cashwell will be assisting Katie Shafer. Kate has been at PACC since 2012 as a lifeguard and is a former PACC diver. She was a very successful high school diver and qualified for district, region, and state competitions multiple times. Kate is finishing her sophomore year at Virginia Tech. Both Katie and Kate have also been assistant coaches for K2 Diving Club for the past several seasons. As for diving, the PACC Diving Invitational is tentatively scheduled for July 17th. Brian and Katie are planning to make the diving team an AAU club-sanctioned team for the summer, which will allow our divers to compete in other AAU competitions including AAU Nationals if they have a qualifying score. This will also allow the teams that come to our meets also have this opportunity as well if the meets are sanctioned. Hopefully Mallory will continue to have a dive team again this summer and we will travel to their pool for an away competition!

Princess Anne Living - March/April 2014

This may only be the March/April issue of Princess Anne Living, but it is not too early to start thinking about planning your summer. As you can tell, we have an all-star team of coaches assembled to work with our kids! If you have a child or children between the ages of 5 and 18, we would love for them join the swim and dive teams. Being a member of these teams is a wonderful opportunity to develop competitive skills, friendships and memories that could last a lifetime. We will be competing in the Dolphin Division of the Virginia Beach Swim League. As spring approaches, we wish you well and look forward to seeing you pool side in May!

Willie L. Riddick Head Maintenance Engineer

Willie Riddick has been with The Princess Anne for 33 years. Needless to say, he has seen many changes during his tenure. Willie remembers most every detail about the old clubhouse, i.e. the furniture and fixtures; six or seven architectural changes and construction projects; the old piping and heating/cooling systems; even the 4” height differential between the sides of the hallway on the second story and the way the floors creaked and made walking in a straight line difficult. Willie remembers being awakened at 11:30 at night when the phone rang. On the other end was Keith Harris, assistant manager, who said that one of the occupied guestroom bathrooms had sprung a leak and water was shooting straight into the air like a geyser at Yellowstone. Willie was able to provide technical instructions to solve the problem over the phone and bring calmness to the messy, wet situation. As he fell back to sleep, it didn’t bother him that he would have to repair the split water line the next morning. Another quirk of the beloved, old clubhouse was an aging plumbing system that controlled the sprinkler system. Unfortunately, when the water pressure dropped, an alarm would sound on the second floor. Usually this occurred during the day, but one night the alarm sounded and all of the guests were awakened. “Some things were just out of my control,” chuckled Willie. Born and raised, in Virginia Beach, Willie loves being by the water and beach. When he initially came to work at The Princess Anne, he worked only during the summer while attending classes at Christopher Newport University. He also took practical courses at American Technical Institute like heating and air-conditioning systems, plumbing, and electronics to name a few. Willie even took courses in pool management in Suffolk to learn about the old pool’s liquid gas filter system. He’s thankful that this system was replaced when the new pool was built in 1992. Throughout


the years, Willie has pursued different courses of study and this quest for knowledge continues today as he stays current with today’s systems. Needless to say, Willie has A LOT for which to be responsible. He knows and understands every aspect of every building on the PACC campus, and is also familiar with every acre of land. Willie has one daughter who is in her senior year at Delaware State College. She hopes to pursue a career in the health field after graduation. For fun Willie loves to go fishing in the ocean and Bay. Weather is never a deterrent, especially when the bass or rockfish are running. Another of Willie’s hobbies is flying both single-line and stunt kites. The last time he flew, Willie launched a kite with a fishing pole using 10 lb. test line. The kite, with a six-foot wing span, climbed to over 200 feet in the air and Willie attracted quite a crowd. The best part was, the fishing reel made it easy to bring in the kite. Willie has a gift for making difficult tasks easy. He is able to solve most any problem that comes at him. There haven’t been two days that were the same for Willie in 33 years, as every day has brought new challenges and a unique set of circumstances. According to Willie, organization is very important, because there is no way to predict what will happen in advance. He says that it also helps to prioritize and do a job correctly the first time. Always calm, cool, and collected when others aren’t, Willie manages to take things in stride. He never gets frustrated and never panics. Willie laughs and says, “I’ve been here so long that not much surprises me!” It’s no wonder that he has received many awards for excellence over the years.

Farewell Sean Tate Each year, members of the Operations Team are recognized for excellence in their job performance.

Of special note, Sean Tate, Director of Security, was recognized as Team Leader of the Year along with Denise Johnson, Human Resources & Accounting Manager. Sadly, Sean passed away on January 15th after being hospitalized with pneumonia nine days prior. Sean faithfully served The Princess Anne for 18 years and was only 45 years old when he died. He will long be remembered for his loyalty, compassion, dry sense of humor, and the vigilant and stealth-like manner with which he watched over the clubhouse and PACC property.

Evening Speaker Series

Drug Trafficking in the United States Thursday, May 1st Trafficking illegal narcotics is a multi-billion dollar industry. Narcotics are trafficked into the United States, the world’s largest consumer of illegal narcotics, from all parts of the globe. Without question, South America and Mexico are world regions responsible for a major portion of the illegal narcotics smuggled into the United States. The people and organizations are more and more sophisticated in the manner and means by which the goal of supplying the ever-growing mass consumption of illegal narcotics is achieved. Chuck Griffith has seen the illegal narcotics trafficking revealed at various levels, from street users and dealers to some of the world’s most significant traffickers. He’ll share some of what he’s learned about the trade, focusing on South America and Mexico, and tell you why drug trafficking isn’t going to end any time soon.

Charles D. Griffith, Jr. (a.k.a. Chuck) has vast prosecution and management experience on both the state and national level. Chuck began his career as an Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney in Norfolk, Virginia, where he prosecuted hundreds of varied state misdemeanor and felony offenses, including a significant number of jury trials. In 1987 Chuck continued his career of public service as an Assistant United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia where he was a member of the Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force. In 1992 Chuck resigned his position as federal prosecutor to seek election as Norfolk’s Commonwealth’s Attorney. Elected in 1992, and re-elected in 1993 and 1995, Chuck served 8 years as Commonwealth’s Attorney for Norfolk before his appointment as a judge with the Norfolk Circuit Court. When he was not re-appointed to serve as a judge by the Virginia General Assembly, Chuck

accepted a position in 2010 as a Trial Attorney with the Narcotic and Dangerous Drug Section of the Criminal Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, where he prosecuted international drug trafficking organizations. In 2012 he transferred to the Office of Enforcement Operations, Policy and Statutory Enforcement Unit, of the Criminal Division, where he reviews requests from federal prosecutors for special permissions and makes recommendations to the Attorney General and the Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division regarding those requests. He is currently a Deputy Chief in the Office of Enforcement Operations, managing and supervising attorneys and support staff within the unit. Chuck graduated from Elon College in 1978 with a B.A. in Philosophy and from Washington & Lee University School of Law in 1982. Chuck and his wife, Margie, currently reside in Alexandria, Virginia, with their labradoodles, Honey and Griffy.

Why Parenting Without Punishment Helps All Of Us Thursday, March 20, 2014 Coffee: 10:00 a.m. Presentation: 10:30 a.m.

Emily Hunter Slingluff, a long time member of the Princess Anne Club and resident of Virginia Beach, is a graduate of Sweet Briar College. After working at The VirginianPilot, she married and then went through a sad time thinking she might never be able to have a child. But she did have two children, and, many years later, was asked by a director of Norfolk Academy if she would write down what she and her husband had done with their children before they entered First Grade. The book she then wrote, A Present to the Newborn, was praised by a psychologist with the Norfolk School System as a “work of genius.” Her new book, Parenting without Punishment, is 3 points for parents in 3 short chapters. She said it took her over twenty years to write it. A comment from a reader: “This book could change the world if more parents took her advice.”

Princess Anne Living - March/April 2014



It’s that time again to sharpen our golf skills and prepare for the golf season ahead! Part of this preparation involves sharpening your knowledge about the Rules of Golf and especially how they pertain to the Princess Anne Golf Course. Take the following test and see if you are ready to play the game as it was meant to be! These questions reflect just a small random sample of The Rules of Golf. 1. A player accidently strikes and moves his ball during a practice stroke. Is he penalized since he did not mean to strike it? Does he have to put it back in to its original position? Does it matter where he is on the course?

If the ball is teed, it is not in play until a stroke is made at it. (A practice stroke is not counted as a stroke.) Therefore, there is no penalty and no stroke, as if it never happened. Anywhere else on the course, if the ball was in play, there is a one stroke penalty and the ball must be replaced. Please note the practice stroke does not count as a stroke. A stroke is when the player intends to hit the ball. Rule 18-2a

Definition of “stroke.”

(i.e. showing him the effect of the wind). In match play, if a player plays out of turn, his opponent can require him to replay the stroke, but there is no penalty. In stroke play, there is no penalty.

4. Is the player who marks and lifts a ball the only one who may replace it?

A ball that has been lifted must be replaced by: 1.) the person who lifted it; or 2.) the player; or 3.) the player’s partner. If replaced by someone not permitted and the error is not corrected before being played, the owner of the ball is penalized one stroke.

Rule 20-3a

5. May my opponent stand behind me on an extension of my line of putt while I make my putting stroke? May my partner stand behind me?

2. If the wind moves the ball instead of the player, does he have to put it back to its original position? Is he penalized for the wind?

If a ball at rest is moved by: 1.) the player, his partner, his caddy, or his equipment; 2.) his opponent, a competitor, their partners, their caddy or their equipment; 3.) any outside agency (i.e. a dog or maintenance equipment), the ball must be replaced. Wind is none of the above (neither is water or gravity). A ball moved by the wind must be played from where it comes to rest; it must not be replaced. Rules 18-1, 18-2, 18-3, 18-4 Definition of “outside agency.”

3. Does the location of a ball on the course have any bearing on the order of play? For example: Would the player in a bunker go before the player on the green regardless of how far away they are?


Rules 10-1b, 10-1c,10-2b, 10-2c and 22; Decision 10-2b/1

Rule 14-2b is very clear. It states: “A player must not make a stroke with his caddy, his partner or his partner’s caddy positioned on or close to an extension of the line of play or the line of putt behind the ball.” Your opponent may stand there but it would be very discourteous not to move if asked. The penalty is two strokes in stroke play or loss of hole in match play.

6. What is a way to remember if I get one or two club lengths when taking relief?

If you are entitled to free relief (i.e. a cart path or ground under repair), you drop within one club length of the nearest point of relief. If you are taking a penalty drop (i.e. a lateral water hazard or unplayable ball), you drop within two lengths of the prescribed point. You might consider that the penalty stroke is the price for the extra club length.

Rules 24, 25, 26 and 28.

In match play, the ball that is away is always, always, always played first, even if the player’s first putt stops one inch from the hole. In stroke play, the Rules state that the ball that is away must be played first; however, there are circumstances involving courtesy, pace of play and a ball interfering or assisting play when the closer ball may be played. This must not be done for the purpose of assisting a fellow-competitor Princess Anne Living - March/April 2014

THE GOLDEN RULES 7. What if a player hits the wrong ball out of a bunker, is he penalized? It looked like his ball and it was the only one visible in the bunker.

Rule 12 states that a ball may be lifted for identification anywhere on the course. Therefore, there is no excuse under the Rules for playing a wrong ball (Rule 15-3) and you would be penalized. There is a specific procedure to be followed when lifting a ball for identification: 1.) You must first notify your opponent or fellow-competitor and give him a chance to watch both the lifting and replacement; 2.) you must mark the ball before lifting; 3.) you must replace the ball and 4.) you may not clean it more than necessary to identify it. If any or all parts of the procedure are not followed, the penalty is one stroke. The penalty for playing a wrong ball is loss of hole in match play. In stroke play, the penalty is 2 strokes and the error must be corrected by playing the correct ball or proceeding under the Rules (i.e. lost ball, water hazard). Failure to correct, results in disqualification.

11. A player plays his approach shot to an elevated green. After arriving at the green, he holes a ball he thinks is his. Upon reaching the hole, he finds his original ball in the hole together with the ball he just putted, which was another player’s ball. What is the ruling?

When the player’s original ball was holed, he had completed play of the hole and could not be penalized for playing a wrong ball. This is true in either match or stroke play.

Decision 1-1/4

12. Two players are playing hole #2 in match play. Player A tees off and makes a hole-in-one. Player B tees off and does not make the green. When they go to their balls, they realize they must have switched balls when practice putting after hole #1 was completed. They played the hole using each other’s balls. What is the ruling?

Rule 15-1 states: “A player must hole out with the ball played from the teeing ground unless the ball is lost, out of bounds or the player substitutes another ball, whether or not the substitution was permitted. If the balls were switched between the time they completed #1 and the time they teed off on #2, there is no penalty to either player because the players are playing with the ball with which they teed off. Furthermore, a player is allowed to substitute a ball when starting play of a hole. It does not matter where he gets the ball.

Decision 15-1/1

8. If player concedes a hole to his opponent and then learns that the opponent has played a wrong ball from a bunker; is there a penalty or does the concession stand?

When the opponent played the wrong ball from the bunker, he lost the hole (Rule 15-3). The concession was irrelevant.

Decision 2-4/9

9. If your ball is under a tall bush are you penalized if you knock some leaves off during your practice swing? How about a limb?

A point to remember about penalties: there are no two-stroke penalties in match play. Any penalty that is two strokes in stroke play is loss of hole in match play.

Rule 13-2 prohibits a player from improving the area of his intended swing. In order for there to be a penalty the leaves or limb must: 1.) be in the area where the player’s actual swing would be affected; 2.) the area must have been changed to give the player a potential advantage (creating more room to swing or eliminating a distraction). If the area of the swing was improved, there is a two stroke penalty in stroke play, and loss of hole penalty in match play.

Check your answers. If you got less than 5 correct, you need to stay off the course and study your Rules book!

Rule 13-2, Decision 13-2/0.5

10. In a lateral hazard, are you penalized if you touch the grass on your backswing? What about pine straw or a pinecone? It seems like the same thing.

Rule 13-4 allows a player in a hazard to touch grass, a bush, tree or other growing thing, so there is no penalty. On the other hand, pine straw and pine cones are loose impediments; the Rule specifically prohibits moving or touching loose impediments except during the stroke, which is only the forward movement of the club. The penalty for touching or moving a loose impediment in a hazard (bunker or water hazard) is two strokes in stroke play, or loss of hole in match play.

“Until next time, keep the questions coming!” RW Guru The Mighty Rules Guru

Note to Rule 13-4; Rule 13-4(c).

Princess Anne Living - March/April 2014



S p rin g h a s S p r u ng! Following many snowy and frosty mornings this winter, spring is right around the corner! Your Golf Course Maintenance Team is excited that a new year has begun and looks forward to continually overcoming the challenges of the Mid-Atlantic weather. One challenge with which we contend, bunker washouts following a hard summer rain, has gotten easier because the Club invested in another round of Better Billy Bunkers this winter. The 2014 rendition of bunkers includes the front right of #15 green, the right of #17 green by the cart path, the front left of #18 green and two of the three bunkers around the practice green near the first tee. The Greens Committee is committed to having the new Better Billy Bunker as well as the original sand near the practice green to allow the members to practice from both types of sand. Here are a few pictures that depict our process:

A new Sandy Waste Area was added to #6. In prior years, this area has been over-grown and complaints were received about the high grass. Per the pictures below, drainage was added, some of the high grass was removed, and then sand was added along with natural plant material. The goal for these areas is to make them look natural, provide access for carts without having a “cart path� and hopefully allow members a better playing surface to find balls and advance their next shot. The pictures below show the before and after of our progress.


Princess Anne Living - March/April 2014

FROM THE GREENS This year the Greens Committee will also be finding new members for the Quality of Care Campaign. If you remember from last year, the Committee spotlighted members who cared for their course by raking bunkers, filling fairway divots and fixing ballmarks. We hope that you will be caught doing something good! Thank you Talbott Jordan!

The Princess Anne has also embarked on a Long Leaf Pine Restoration Program. The City of Virginia Beach approached us to be the pilot location for this new program that will hopefully bring back the once stunning long leaf pine to the Tidewater area. The long leaf was once the dominate species of tree in this area and due to logging and progress, was all but erased from this area. The specimens you see around the course are mostly the LobLolly Pine that is more efficient at reproducing that the long leaf. Candidly the City is looking for more ways to introduce the long leaf in our neighborhoods, so if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact Matt Boyce at the Club. Here are a few pictures of our first phase:

FROM THE COURTS Breakers Boulevard construction is nearing completion and winter is fading! Hurray for warm weather! Ladies Spring Lunch League will return in the middle of April, after the bubble is taken down. The sign-up sheet will be at the desk in the pro shop, and be watching for an e-mail campaign as well. If you would like to get involved, please do not hesitate to ask one of our team members about participating! Our Cup Events kick off in April with the Virginia Cup on April 26th featuring our top male players competing in a doubles event at Westwood Club in Richmond. May brings the Fun Cup at Norfolk Yacht on the 4th. The biggest change to the calendar this year is the Member/Guest Doubles Tournament which was held around the 4th of July weekend for the past five years. Many have expressed concerns about this time period because of family obligations during holiday weekends, so it has been moved up a week to June 27-29th. We hope this date

will be more convenient for a majority of our players and look forward to a big showing this year! A new event was added at the end of January, the CHKD Warm-Up Round Robin. It was hugely attended and everyone seemed to enjoy the fast moving “no serves” format with a pro starting each point with a “fed” ball on each court in lieu of the serve. 35 players showed up and had a blast playing a different team every 15 minutes, with the whole event lasting three hours! This gave teams a great opportunity to practice two weeks before the big event, the CHKD Winter Open Mixed, which once again had a huge turnout, attracting 61 teams. Another large donation was made to the CHKD, thanks to those who participated and/or sponsored the tournament. Results are featured on the next page.

PING PONG PALOOZA Ping Pong Palooza drew many competitors to join in the tradition. As in years past, Kettler provided 12 new tables, making this a unique and fun event at our Club. An extra night of ping pong was offered the week before for players to practice for the event. Results were unavailable at press time.

UPDATE ON TECHNOLOGY & ONLINE COURT RESERVATIONS SYSTEM Please note that we have taken our on-line reservation system off-line while we work with the providers to improve its functionality. Please call the pro-shop to book a court at 428-7803.

Junior News The holidays were kicked off the right way with our Holiday Camps which were very well- attened! It was great to see some new faces and bring everyone together before the break. There were even some nice days to have lunch outside on the new balcony!

Here are the particulars:

Spring Junior Team Tennis starts in May and we will once again live up to our reputation as the model of success and cooperation for this program. Our Mid-Atlantic JTT Coordinator, Matt Barnhart, references the PACC constantly in his presentations about how an exclusive and private premier club can boast more JTT teams from its junior program than all other clubs in Hampton Roads combined. He even invited our Tennis Director, John Fraser, to give a presentation at this year’s Mid-Atlantic Conference in Washington, DC on January 25th. John said in his speech that it was a huge collaborative and cooperative effort on the part of his team, the parents and, of course, the kids in order for the program to be a success. He felt that JTT was the future of tennis because it gives kids of all ages and levels an opportunity to play weekly matches with their buddies on a team regardless if they have any aspirations in the game or not. After a record high 12 teams last season, we look forward, with your efforts, to another great year!

2) Second, a team name (examples: “Thrashers” or “Destroyers”) needs to be invented.


1) A parent or two is needed to volunteer to be a team captain or co-captains.

3) A team code is needed, which will be handed out by Jennifer Toomey, our coordinator. 4) At least 6 players need to be recruited, 3 boys and 3 girls, but a team can have up to 16 (we can help with that). Players will use the team code to register for the team. 5) It’s not required, but certainly recommended that one of our pros be the team coach and set up a weekly team practice/ clinic. 6) Matches are typically played on Sundays either at ODU, Owl Creek or Lynnhaven Middle.

Princess Anne Living -March/April 2014


Summer Camp Schedule

Quickstart 36-Future Stars Ages 4-11 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Last year morning summer camps were revamped and hugely successful because of the flexibility that was enjoyed by both kids and parents! Therefore, again this year, age-groups will be will be combined so that children can stay for more than just one hour. Parents will only be charged for the hours that their children are participating, even if the time is not sequential. Camps are held weekly, beginning June 9th. Here is the schedule:

Pro Shop News All the new racquets have arrived, including the Babolat Strike, the Wilson Pro Staff Spin, and the Head Radical. Stop in to demo one today. Also please check your racquet bags to see if one of our demos was mistakenly taken, as quite a few of them are still outstanding. Remember, when it comes to strings, there is a dizzying array available and each can have a significant impact on the way a racquet performs. Our team is extremely knowledgeable on the subject and can steer you in the right direction as far as recommending the best string based on your game style and racquet choice. A string’s performance drops off rapidly over time and needs replacing regardless of whether it’s broken or even showing signs of wear. The rule of thumb is to restring your racquet as many times in a year as you play in a week so for instance if you play twice a week then restring every 6 months.

JTT teams, Academy and Elite 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Pricing: $15/hour with advance sign up or $18/hour drop-in

New Nike Apparel and ASICS shoes! An abundance of new merchandise has been added to the tennis pro shop this season, from racquets with new technology to new shoes…ASICS! Our team is very excited about these new additions and hope you will feel the same!

John’s Tip Key Components of the serve: If you freeze your motion right after releasing your toss, do you look like any of these photos? Despite the wealth of different styles out there on the serve, everyone should have some commonality in the “key components” of serving. Look at the photos of these three pros from different walks of life, and notice how similar they look at this particular juncture of the serve. We call this the “check mark” component or “trophy pose” component for obvious reasons, but this is where your non-dominant arm should be after the toss as well as your racket before it drops into the “backscratch” position prior to the racket head “lassoing” around toward the ball. At the “check mark” position, you can see that the knees are bent, also known as the “loading phase” before launching or “unloading” up to the ball. Ask your pro to take time to video your serve before working on these key components to see if you are close. If not, spend time on it by actually starting your delivery from the “check mark” position rather than your normal “ready” position. This will reprogram your muscle memory and once you get a “feel” for the motion, and you can then incorporate all these components.

The Skinny on the Fat Burning Zone

“Fat Burning Zone”

A member asked me this question: “I’ve read that if I want to burn more fat and lose more weight while exercising, I need to exercise in the fat burning zone. Is this true?”

The short answer is, no, not really. Although it’s technically true that exercising in the so-called “fat burning zone” (at a lower intensity level of about 60% to 70% of maximum heart rate) does use a higher percentage of fat calories for fuel, the overall total calories burned is still fairly low. The reason is simple. Fat is a slow-burning fuel that requires oxygen to convert it to a usable energy, so it’s great for long, steady, slow exercise, like backpacking, or cycling a long distance. Most people have enough stored body fat to fuel low level activity for days and days without running out of energy, but if you want to go fast, work all-out, or burn the most calories per minute, you need to rely on the fasterburning carbohydrate (glycogen) for energy. Converting fat to fuel takes longer, and requires lots of oxygen. In the strictest definition, this is called aerobic metabolism. High intensity training (HIT), on the other hand, tends to use anaerobic metabolism, or glycolysis, to quickly convert stored glycogen to energy for exercise. The downside of anaerobic metabolism is that it has a limited supply, and when you run out of stored glycogen, typically around the two hour mark, you’ll have to slow down and start using aerobic metabolism or refill your glycogen stores with some easy to digest carbohydrates. To further complicate the fat-burning zone theory, you need to recognize that when we exercise we use a combination of energy systems throughout the workout. Athletes are rarely exclusively in the aerobic or anaerobic zone. Now to the real question. If your goal is weight loss, and burning calories is the way you are trying to lose weight, you are better off exercising at a higher intensity 2-3 times per week, and burning more overall calories from both fat and stored glycogen. You still burn more total calories, and more calories from fat, at a higher intensity. Pushing your pace, alternating bursts of high and low intensity (interval training), and adding some all-out efforts forces you to activate the anaerobic system (70-90% of your maximum heart rate), which results in a greater number of total calories burned during your workout, which is what ultimately determines fat loss from exercise.


Still not convinced?

Let’s do the math. The chart below details the fat calories expended by a 130-pound woman during a typical exercise session. In this example, the woman burns more total calories and more fat calories at a higher intensity.

Low Intensity (60-65% MHR)

High Intensity (80-85% MHR)

Total calories burned per min.



Fat calories burned per min.



Total calories burned in 30 min.



Total fat calories burned in 30 min.



Percentage of fat calories burned

So, Is Low Intensity Exercising Just a Waste of Time? Before you start doing all your workouts in the high intensity zone, keep in mind that exercising at a high intensity all the time is just not smart. It can easily lead to overtraining, injury, and exercise burnout. Low-intensity cardiovascular exercise has many benefits, and for some people, it is the best way to exercise. One reason some people are better off sticking with a lower intensity workout is that working at the high intensity is difficult. Yes, it’s hard work. You can’t go very long without running out of fuel, so it’s not going to be something you can do for hours on end. Unless you train at a high level, you probably have enough glycogen to last about two hours before you run out of glycogen and need to refuel, or slow down. Refueling with the right food is one way to maintain a high intensity over hours and hours, and why ultra-endurance athletes snack on energy bars, bananas and power drinks. This isn’t necessary for most recreational exercisers who rarely work out for more than an hour. If your typical workout routine includes an hour at the gym, you don’t need to worry about running out of fuel if you work hard. So going for a high-intensity effort, at least a couple times a week, is a simple way to make the most of your workout time.

Princess Anne Living - March/April 2014

LIFESTYLES & FITNESS High intensity workouts aren’t for the timid. And they aren’t for a beginner. They require a lot of effort and you will need to gradually build up your body to handle those efforts. You can’t go from couch potato to high-intensity queen overnight. You need to get your muscles, joints, cardiovascular system, and even your mind prepared to handle the stress, or you could easily overdo it and wind up injured or ill. So, while high intensity gets you fit faster, and burns more calories, low intensity exercise should still have a place in your workout schedule. In fact, longer, slow endurance exercise should be a regular part of a well-balanced, healthy lifestyle. Recovery is faster with low intensity movement. Going for a hike, taking a casual bike ride, or just stretching are excellent low intensity activities. Mix it up with shorter, higher intensity workouts and power training to add variety, burn calories and build endurance quickly. Be smart, listen to your body, and mix up your workouts in the way that works best for your goals and comfort zone. We have a multitude of high intensity exercise classes at The Lifestyles Fitness Center. Any of the instructors can modify your program to any level of fitness. So, why not try one today? Good luck and I’ll see you at the gym.
