Parkside The Face of Fitness in RECenters With more than 25 years experience in fitness, I know one thing for sure—one size does not fit all. On the path to fitness, the journey is as unique as the traveler, which is why our Park Authority fitness team is committed to understanding each customer’s individual fitness needs.  By meeting you where you are in your journey, our professional staff provides support and helps you navigate obstacles and move closer to your ultimate fitness destination. We understand the importance of listening, learning and relating to you so we can better serve you.  Our customers told us they wanted more drop-in fitness classes, and we responded with more than 400 drop in classes per week at county RECenters. New schedules offer a wider variety of classes at expanded times and days to accommodate busy lifestyles. In response to customer feedback, we also now offer advanced and specialty registration classes, such as level II and III Pilates and yoga as well as classes that address the unique fitness needs of active older adults and people with special needs.  We are also planning to expand child care services along with classes and camps designed to meet the needs of our younger customers and to support family fitness. Our fitness center staff members are always available to provide free orientations. Fitness center equipment has been updated to accommodate all fitness levels from the beginner to the competitive athlete. If you need extra help, our certified personal trainers are available to provide one-on-one assistance, and in 2018, expanded wellness coaching programs will be offered to help you identify and maintain healthy lifestyle choices for improved well-being. Our certified fitness team welcomes the opportunity to serve you and your family’s fitness and wellness needs.  One size may not fit all, but all shapes and sizes fit – and can get fit – at your neighborhood RECenter.  So come on in, and find your fit at Fairfax County RECenters.  We can’t wait to meet you!

INOVA Partnership Expands Rehab Services to RECenters It’s easy to take mobility for granted until you lose it. Just ask Frank Kelley of Annandale, an archery and fencing coach who once trained at the Olympic training center. He was setting up for a class one day when he suffered a debilitating back injury that left him unable to walk. “I strained my back moving heavy archery targets,” he recalled. “The impingement on my sciatic nerve caused pain and numbness, and I lost the feeling in my right toe.” Unable to walk or work, the 69-year-old grandfather worried what the future would hold. “Anticipation of the unknown is a fearful thing,” he said. Kelley found healing last winter in the Inova Physical Therapy Center at Audrey Moore RECenter. After a few physical therapy sessions, he says he could walk with a cane, and within a few months, he could walk without assistance and without pain. “The therapist was very good,” he said. “The whole process from beginning to end was outlined, and the physical therapy was effective and intertwined with the exercise room.” The partnership between Inova and the Park Authority puts medically-based, rehabilitative services as well as communitybased exercise programs all under one roof. The pilot program at Audrey Moore RECenter in Annandale has been so well-received, it is being expanded to Cub Run RECenter in Chantilly and Spring Hill RECenter in McLean. “This partnership gives people greater accessibility to physical therapy when they are injured,” said program director Ben

After being released from rehab at Audrey Moore RECenter, Frank Kelley purchased a RECenter membership so could continue making progress on his own. 6

Program director Ben Igwe and physical therapist Jiseon Park evaluate Wayne Arrington at Cub Run RECenter.

Wayne Arrington works with a physical therapist from the Inova program at Cub Run RECenter. Igwe, one of the licensed physical therapists based in RECenters. “A traditional physical therapy office has a lot smaller space, and the RECenters have additional resources such as fitness rooms, gyms and pools that can also be valuable rehabilitation tools.” Wayne Arrington of Chantilly is among the first people to take advantage of the new Inova physical therapy services at Cub Run RECenter. The 65-year-old retired database administrator suffers from back pain, and in addition to finding skilled therapists at a convenient location near his home, he is impressed with the way the medical professionals use technology to help patients continue with exercises at home. “They have a real nice system where you go online with a smart phone, and an app takes you through the exercise routine,” he said. “It’s an excellent tool, and as the therapist adds exercises to the list, the app runs through them for you including number of repetitions and duration. It’s worth its weight in gold!” While Arrington is just beginning his physical therapy program, Kelley is back at work teaching archery and fencing, pain-free. He attributes his healing to the physical therapy he received through the Inova partnership, and consistent exercise at Audrey Moore RECenter once he was released from rehab. “The equipment is great,” he said. “As soon as I got done, I bought a membership.” To learn more about Inova’s services at Fairfax County RECenters or to make an appointment, call 1-877-604-6682 or visit www.inova.org.

The Fit in 30 class packs a lot of exercise in a little time.

Park Authority Introduces New Drop-In Fitness Classes Spice up your gym routine with drop-in group fitness classes – free with your RECenter membership or daily admission! With hundreds of class offerings each week, there’s an option to suit all fitness levels and busy schedules. One of the newest classes is Fit in 30 at Audrey Moore RECenter. Using weights and your own body for resistance, you get a total-body workout in just 30 minutes. “I love it,” said student Monica Moore of Annandale. “It’s super-efficient, you get a really good workout in a short amount of time, and the instructor varies exercises from week to week.” For more intensity, try 30/30/30 – a new combo class that starts with 30 minutes of cardio and strength-training followed by 30 minutes of core work and 30 minutes of stretching to improve flexibility. You can pick just one, two or all three 30 minute segments. Silver Sculpt is geared toward the 55+ crowd and anyone else who wants a great workout that’s easy on the joints. The new, 55-minute class begins with a stretching warm-up and progresses with low-intensity cardio exercises, strength-training with weights and stability ball exercises for balance. “I think it’s excellent,” said Phyllis LaPlante of Fairfax during a recent session at Providence RECenter. "The Qigong elements promote energy and the exercises help with strength and balance.” For more intensity, try Les Mills BodyCombat, a new, high-energy, martial arts-inspired workout that challenges you to punch and kick your way to fitness. Or, check out High Fitness, a new choreographed interval-training class with intense cardio peaks and toning tracks set to music you know and love. Winter 2018

Several other new classes complement our established drop-in options including Zumba, Pilates, Yoga, TRX and many more. Visit the web to see the fitness calendar at each RECenter, and give your gym routine a boost with drop-in group fitness classes. Group fitness calendars are available at all Fairfax County RECenters and online at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks. Classes vary by location, and your RECenter membership gives you free access to drop-in fitness classes at all Fairfax County RECenters!

The Silver Sculpt class, taught by 73-year-old Richard Chew, mixes East Asian arts with light cardio for a well-balanced workout.

Experience the NEW Burke Lake Golf Center After an 18-month construction and renovation project, the new Burke Lake Golf Center is getting rave reviews from customers. At press time, the new clubhouse with expanded dining facilities and a dedicated pro shop was just about completed and set to open by the end of October 2017. “I love it,” said golfer David Lawson of Springfield. “It’s a whole lot better than what we have now with more space and a bigger pro shop.” “We’re looking forward to providing expanded service to all of our customers,” said manager Lewis Musolf who has worked at the course since 1997. “Our regular patrons have been following the construction progress throughout the spring and summer golf seasons and they’re really impressed.” The new clubhouse is the first major construction project at Burke Lake Golf Center since it opened in 1970. It comes on the heels of a new, double-decker driving range that opened in April. Thanks to covered, heated stations, golfers will now be able to comfortably practice their shots and take lessons from Burke Lake Golf Academy during cold winter months. “It’s beautiful,” said Burke Lake Golf Academy manager Meg DeMott. “For the first time, we have dedicated office space for the academy and easy access from the range to the new clubhouse.” The dedicated clubhouse dining room and outdoor patio offer golfers and nongolfers an expanded menu and a relaxed atmosphere for casual get-togethers. In addition, wi-fi access at both the range and the clubhouse make Burke Lake Golf Center an ideal place to stay connected while you’re away from the office. The new facility with 21st century amenities was funded by the 2008 and 2012 park bonds Top: A rendering of the new clubhouse and will replace the aging infrastructure to dining area.

Discovery Trail Leads to New Bikes for Three Kids and a Dad!

Happy bike winners Evan Willis, 10; Patrick Gallager, 13; Asa Collegio, 7 and Brian Viskupic, 44 receive new bikes and safety helmets as winners of the 2017 Fairfax County Park Authority Discovery Trail Map bike drawing. The prizes were awarded at the Spokes, Etc. shop in Fairfax on Oct. 9, 2017. “This is the first time I’ve ever won anything out of hundreds of contests we’ve done,” said 13-year-old Patrick Gallagher of Herndon in amazement as he approached the shiny new bike he won in the Fairfax County Park Authority’s Discovery Trail Map drawing in September. Gallagher was one of four winners who received new bicycles and safety helmets from Spokes, Etc. and Trek through the Fairfax County Park Foundation. Their winning tickets were among 935 drawing entries from participants who visited at least eight of the 12 featured sites on the Discovery Trial Map this past summer. All drawing entrants received a prize packet full of tickets to amusements such as mini golf, carousel, boat and train rides and camping valued at $93. This is the fourth year the Park Authority has offered the Discovery Trail Map summer fun activity, and it is the first year adults were eligible to win prizes. Brian Viskupic of Falls Church, the first adult drawing winner, decided to give the bike to his wife, Lara Fabiano, so they could enjoy riding together with their children. “We’re very excited because I didn’t have a bike, and everyone else did, and now we can ride together as a family,” Fabiano said.

To request accommodations, or for more information about adapted program opportunities, call (703) 3248563. The Park Authority makes every attempt to provide accommodations; however, fulfillment of requests received with less than 10 days’ notice cannot be guaranteed.

Facility Accessibility

The Fairfax County Park Authority offers parks and facilities that are accessible to all of Fairfax County residents. For information on accessible features or issues associated with usage, call (703) 324-8563 or visit www.fairfaxcounty.gov/ parks.

Follow guidelines when registering

If it has been a month or longer since the student has participated in a swimming lesson, we suggest repeating the previous course completed. If you have any questions about which class is right for you or your child, please contact the Adapted Aquatics Coordinator at 703-324-8565. For safety reasons and to ensure customers get the maximum aquatic program benefits, the Park Authority reserves the right to remove students from an inappropriate class and either issue a refund or place them, when possible, in a class that better matches their ability.

Practice and Repetition are keys to success

Each student progresses at a different speed in learning aquatic skills. Students often repeat a level several times before developing the endurance and skill proficiency necessary for advancement. Repeating a level does not constitute failure; it is to be expected. Mastering skills takes time, practice, and patience.

Adapted Aquatics The Park Authority’s award-winning Adapted Aquatics program offers individualized swimming and water activity instruction for individuals with physical and intellectual disabilities. The program’s structured setting is ideal for individuals who aren’t ready to learn basic swim skills in a general recreation environment. Classes are conducted by certified instructors and trained volunteers to support a low student-to-instructor ratio. For more information, call (703) 324-8565.

Aquatics

Aquatics The Fairfax County Park Authority’s aquatic facilities offer something for everyone. From infants to senior citizens to people with special needs, we serve all levels of swimming ability and aquatic interests. Monthly calendars listing pool hours are available at the Park Authority’s nine RECenters and online at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks.

Follow guidelines when registering

If it has been a month or longer since the student has participated in a swimming lesson, we suggest repeating the previous course completed. If you have any questions about which class is right for you or your child, please contact the aquatic staff at your favorite RECenter. For safety reasons and to ensure customers get the maximum aquatic program benefits, the Park Authority reserves the right to remove students from an inappropriate class and either issue a refund or place them, when possible, in a class that better matches their ability level.

Practice and Repetition are keys to success

Each student progresses at a different speed in learning aquatic skills, depending on a number of factors including class attendance, coordination, water familiarity and outside practice. Students often repeat a level several times before developing the endurance and skill proficiency necessary for advancement. Repeating a level does not constitute failure; it is to be expected. Mastering skills takes time, practice and patience.

Combining course levels

When enollment is low, course levels may be combined to avoid class cancelations.

Small-Group Swim Lessons RECenters now offer small-group lessons. This new lesson option complements the Park Authority’s other swim instruction offerings: • Private Lessons for students ages 3 to adult offer one-on-one instruction solely based on the student’s skill level. • Semi-private lessons for students ages 3 to adult offer instruction between two participants of similar ability and one instructor. • Small-group lessons will offer the same curriculum as the larger, traditional group lessons but to a smaller group of swimmers. Small-group lessons lower student-to-teacher ratios, offer more personalized instruction and more practice time than large-group lessons. • Traditional group lessons offer a comprehensive curriculum for participants ranging in age from 6 mos. to adult.

Practice Healthy Swimming Habits

Accidents in the pool involving vomit or fecal matter require the pool to be closed to clean and sanitize the water. Under Health Department standards recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), accidents involving fecal matter now require longer pool closure. Prevention is far better than clean up, so please follow the CDC guidelines: • Children (and adults) who have had diarrhea in the last two weeks should not go swimming. • Be sure to use the bathroom before getting into the pool and take frequent bathroom breaks. For public health reasons, standard diapers cannot be worn in the pool. Children who are not yet toilet trained must wear snug fitting plastic pants and/or a swim diaper under their bathing suit. Waist and legs on plastic pants or swim diapers must be snug enough to contain matter that could contaminate the pool. Please check diapers often, and change them in the locker room not on the pool deck. • Adults who have continence issues should refrain from using the pool. • Shower before entering the pool and after using the toilet. • Avoid swallowing pool water or even getting it in your mouth.

Ice Skating

Ice Skating • Offered at Mt. Vernon Ice Arena at Mt. Vernon RECenter and Fairfax Ice Arena. • Plan to arrive at least 30 minutes before your class begins to allow ample time to “gear up”. • Prior to the first class, students should attend a public session to become accustomed to the ice and to determine proper skate fitting. • Recommended clothing is a sweater or jacket, knit hat, gloves or mittens and warm, comfortable, slacks. • Ice skating classes include free admission to public skating sessions equal to the number of classes. All group-lesson students are entitled to free rental skates for use during lessons and practice sessions. • Although there are no equipment requirements except as noted in Hockey 1 and up, head protection (hockey or biking helmets), knee and elbow protection are strongly recommended.

Private Lessons

For information about private ice skating lessons, call the Mt. Vernon Ice Arena programming office: 703-768-3224.

Biking Programs

Fishing Programs Fishing Clinic

Bike riders of all ages and skill levels are bound to love the new pump track at Lake Fairfax Park. The track is a continuous loop of dirt berms and rollers that enable you to ride without pedaling. The name comes from the pumping motion used by the rider’s upper and lower body as they ride around the track. It’s a great workout and lots of fun! Almost any bicycle will work; BMX bikes, mountain bikes, kids bikes - even “scooter” bikes can be used on the pump track. All you really need is a bike with knobby tires and a safety helmet. It’s a great way to increase bike handling skills for younger riders and for the whole family to enjoy cycling in a safe, traffic-free environment. The pump track is accessible dawn to dusk year round.

Pet Place

Pet Place Our dog obedience classes help build a strong relationship between pet and handler by developing understanding and communication. Flexible training methods are employed for home management, problem solving and correction. Please note: • Dogs that display fear or aggression are not permitted in Park Authority classes. • Bring a shot record with proof of DHLA rabies and parvovirus shots to the first class. • All dogs must be legally licensed, vaccinated, wearing a visible dog license and leashed when entering or leaving the class area. • Check with instructor at first class for proper leashes, collars and other equipment. • An adult must stay with child handler if student is younger than 16 or does not have own transportation. • All classes are held outdoors. • Register the handler, not the dog; one handler/ one dog per registration. Some classes may have supply fees so check class descriptions for details. Any supply fees are payable to instructor at first class and are non-refundable.

Off-Leash Dogs Welcome in Special Dog Parks

Owners of well-mannered canines can take their pets to fenced, off-leash dog parks for free play, a good run or a friendly romp with other dogs. FCPA has nine established dog parks: • Baron Cameron, 11300 Baron Cameron Ave., Reston • Blake Lane, 10033 Blake Lane, Oakton • Chandon, 900 Palmer Drive, Herndon • Grist Mill, 4710 Mt. Vernon Memorial Hwy., Alexandria • Lenclair, 6725 Lenclair St., Alexandria • Mason District, 6621 Columbia Pike, Annandale.  • Rock Hill District Park, 15150 Old Lee Road, Centreville. • South Run, 7550 Reservation Drive, Springfield  • Westgrove, 6801 Fort Hunt Road, Alexandria   Most of the Park Authority dog parks are public/ private partnerships, developed in cooperation with sponsoring organizations of pet owners. Volunteers assist with monitoring and cleaning up the facilities, making users aware of dog park rules and regulations and reporting maintenance needs to the Park Authority. Dog parks are open year-round from 7 a.m. to 30 minutes after sunset on weekdays and from 8 a.m. to 30 minutes after sunset on weekends and Federal holidays.  Neither Fairfax County nor the Fairfax County Park Authority is liable for any injury or damage caused by any dog in the off-leash area. For off-leash dog park rules and regulations, visit www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/ parkrules/dogpark.htm, or call (703) 324-8594.

Dog Training One-on-One

Lake Accotink Park offers individualized dog training lessons taught by an instructor with more than 20 years of experience actively training dogs, training other people how to train dogs and competing in dog sports. Sessions are customized to your dog’s level of behavioral development and tailored to your schedule. Includes a pre-session phone consultation with the instructor to determine your goals and to set a date and time for your first session. An excellent option for busy people who need more flexibility than weekly lessons can provide.

Dog ObedienceClasses

(9-Adult) Class is designed for family units of two or

three who want to train the dog together. Handlers learn how to train their dogs to sit, lie down, come and stay and walk on a leash. Class also includes home management and problem solving.

One adult per family must be present at each class, and all family members must be age 9 or older. 1DB 8--55 minute lessons--$139 Location Day Time SpHillREC SpHillREC

In 1951, Betsy Eakin Walsh’s grandfather, LeRoy Eakin, Sr. donated 14 acres in the Accotink Stream Valley which became Fairfax County’s first park. Later, the Eakins donated 240 additional acres for parkland and established a family trust to help support that park through the Fairfax County Park Foundation. “I’m proud to continue ‘Daddy Roy’s’ legacy to help ensure that exceptional parks are available for my grandchildren,” said Betsy, who included the Fairfax County Park Foundation in her will. “My ACY CIRCL EG hope is that other individuals and families will be inspired to join the FCPF Legacy Circle to enrich Fairfax County parks. It’s an investment that will reap dividends for future generations!”
