Cows on the run

Article: Victoria Harper

Ever wondered how cows get fit? Do they need to? I am not sure. It all started with that advert – the cow fulfilling her dream of being a horse galloping across a deserted beach. Her dream made true as a thank you for all the milk she has given us. Now I can’t help but wonder how we could thank our Jersey’s. After all – they are, you have to admit, a little more classy than their black and white cousins and perhaps with their sunshine hues, their giant lashed doe eyes and svelte figures, a little more sexy, (to other cows of course). So, perhaps you wouldn’t be surprised to discover that actually their milk, which we have always known was good, is also quite possibly nature’s answer to rehydration for sports fanatics. Invigorated and relishing in your post work out glow, you feel good, but it is quite likely your body is gasping for fluid. Before you reach for the bright, sugary commercial drink or gulp back your bottle of water. Pause and think of drinking something which our golden cows have donated naturally. It is well known that milk is good for strong bones, teeth and growth, but a study by Dr. Susan Shirreffs from Loughborough University has shown that milk as a post- exercise drink can restore and maintain hydration status equally as well as or even better than a commercially available sports drink. Milk also offers a long list of nutritional benefits for sports men and women, including protein for muscle growth and repair, carbohydrates for energy, fluid and electrolytes for re-hydration,

and vitamins and minerals for healthy bones and body. Jersey Milk could be even more helpful and beneficial to sports people and others though, as it contains 20% more protein, 20% more calcium, and a higher concentration of minerals and vitamins than the milk of other breeds. A study by Emma Cockburn, from the Department of Social Sciences at the University of Northumbria, also reveals that drinking milk can help alleviate active muscle soreness and drops in muscle performance. She claims sports men and women need only drink as little as half a litre of milk following exercise to have the beneficial effects, but it should be drunk immediately following exercise for the full benefits to be felt. Over the sea, a Washington based Milk Education Programme has even gone so far as calling milk a ‘true fitness drink’, citing the fact that it contains high quality protein which, along with exercise, helps build and keep muscle looking fit and healthy. So, though I am still not sure how cows stay fit, a spot of their white stuff after your workout could go a long way to helping you keep on track and perhaps our Jersey’s would like a free yoga class or two as a thank you.

Ditch the workout – Join the party Zumba is a Latin – inspired, feel-it-to-the-core dance fitness party that leaves you exhilarated about your day. Latin America’s latest dance craze is so infectious you won’t even notice you’re exercising. Zumba was created in the mid 1990’s by Colombian Alberto ‘Beto’ Perez. Inspired by the traditional cumba, salsa, samba and merengue music he grew up with. People of all ages are falling in love with its infectious music and easy to follow dance moves. You’ll be so busy strutting your stuff that you’ll forget you’re actually exercising. With its unique rhythms and motivating music, Zumba Fitness will make you feel alive and full of energy. It’s a total-body workout!!!!!! With its non-stop hip swivelling, shoulder-shimmying and fabulous footwork, Zumba Fitness combines cardiovascular and interval training to torch fat and calories, whittle your middle and sculpt your hips, butt and thighs. Get ready for the sleek, sexy physique you’ve always dreamed of.

2 Active Life

movement raise and lower your heart rate, helping your body to burn fat more efficiently. You’ll want to return again and again.

You’ll find Zumba Fitness to be like no other fitness system with its scorching fusion of world music and spicy dance rhythms – to make you feel like you’re at a party or a club.

Springfield Stadium – Jo Matson is teaching Zumba on Wednesday at 5.45pm and Saturday at 9.15am.

If exercise is fun and easy to do, you’ll stick with it, which is the key to long-term health. That’s why Zumba fitness utilises aerobic interval training (combining fast and slow rhythms) to deliver an addictive, high energy workout. These intervals of fast and slow

So if you would like to: • • • • • •

Have more energy and stamina Feel brighter, clearer and healthier Improve your skin Maintain a healthy weight and have a flatter stomach Eliminate waste matter and toxins Help to clean/oxygenate the blood cells

Detox Juices Lemon Essence 8 carrots, 1 apple, juice of 1 lemon, 2.5 cm (1 inch) ginger root.

Papaya Parade 2 firm papayas, 2 pears, ½ teaspoon grated ginger root.

And if you would like to say goodbye to:

Grapes Galore 20 green grapes, 10 strawberries, 1 apple, 2 sprigs of fresh mint.

• • • • • •

Skin issues/ill health Food allergies/sensitiveness Body odour/bad breath Fatigue/tiredness Digestive issues/bloating Fatty deposits/weight gain

Then you are encouraged to pursue a detox programme for an improved long healthy life. You can do this by simply cleansing the whole body within, effectively ridding the body of cellular waste materials and other damaging agents.

Berry Blitz 1 punnet of your favourite berries or even mixed berries (strawberries, blackberries, gooseberries, raspberries) 2 peaches, 1 apple.

Ginger Enlivener 2 apples, 2 pears, small piece of ginger root. Wakes up the taste buds first thing in the morning.

Pineapple Pick Me Up Simply the juice of 1 pineapple.

You don’t need to search far and wide for good detox ingredients. Local fresh fruit and vegetables and other fresh local produce are ideal for a detox diet. This can help support local businesses too.

Fruit and vegetables should be peeled and cored before juicing. Ginger root should be peeled and grated. For more ideas contact Debbie or Tony at the gym.

please note that any detox diet plan should be done for short term intervals only and up to 3 times a year. It is advisable to consult a doctor before embarking on any detox diets.

Why Detox?

For further detox details/herbal detox supplements please contact Tony Knowles or Debbie Major at the Fort Regent Active Gym desk.

Well, for starters if done properly, it’s a safe and effective way of clearing the body of: stagnant matter, damaging agents; toxins/metals/free radicals, water retention, fatty deposits and liver/ bowel issues. A good detox programme acts as a pre-cursor to any future diet due to its ability to cleanse the body. A regular detox is certainly one answer for anyone who wishes for a prolonged positive state of health. It is preferable to detoxify the body every four to six months. The main reason for us to detox regularly in the current social environment is due to our poor diets, bad eating/cooking habits, day to day stresses and busy lifestyles. We are constantly overwhelmed by toxins on a daily basis from various different sources including: food/air pollution, additives/preservatives, excess sugars and salt, pesticides/chemicals and drugs/medications. Many toxins are fat-soluble and therefore attracted to our fat tissue and cell membranes. These toxins are stored in the fatty parts of our body for many years; which will eventually lead to a ‘toxic overload’, resulting in ill health.

4 Active Life

Toxic Overload: If left, a body full of toxins (which can become a bad acidic environment) will affect the body’s own natural defence system causing a low resistance to bacteria, infections and disease. Another concern is the low quantities of good fibre in the modern day diet which creates irregular or infrequent bowel movements, adding to the toxic overload. Toxic overload occurs after the toxins have been absorbed by the body; when waste matter is then carried to the bowel to be finally eliminated, a term simply known as ‘not eliminating properly’.

Do you feel

out of shape

after the festive season?

If you do, don’t worry we’ve got the perfect solution called Circuit Training. It’s a one hour, high intensity, all over body workout, that consists of a mixture of weights, cardiovascular and core exercise stations which when combined gives you a fantastic workout. It has the potential to shed the pounds, tone up those muscles, improve balance and cardiovascular fitness. The workout consists of: • A thorough warm up and explanation of exercises • 8 to 12 stations • 30 – 60 sec on each station • 3 – 4 circuits • After going through a full circuit you will have a short rest • Cool down and stretches Whilst circuit training can be a high intensity workout, participants are encouraged to train at their own pace.

There are always lower impact options available and our gym staff are qualified to give alternatives to cater to certain injuries or restrictions, so the class is suitable for beginners to advanced level. There is always something different to try with new exercises and combinations to train your body in different ways. We use many types of equipment including; • Ropes • Barbells • Dumbbells

• • • •

Skipping ropes Kettle bells Benches TRX bands

This wide variety gives you a well rounded, all over body workout. ‘WATCH THIS SPACE’ – For those extreme fitness goers, keep an eye out for the Tabata classes to be introduced in January.

After school lessons

How to book

After school lessons follow the Amateur Swimming Association’s national plan for teaching swimming from level 1 to level 8. Levels 1 to 4 are in the small pool and levels 5 to 8 are in the main pool. When children have achieved level 8 we recommend that they should join one of Jersey’s swimming clubs.

If you would like more information or to book swimming lessons at Les Quennevais Sports Centre, please email sport@gov.je or phone 449880 and include the following information about your child:

Adult lessons

We are able to provide swimming assessments at 4pm on Saturdays to ensure your child starts in the correct class for their ability.

These take place on a Wednesday evening with beginner lessons in the small pool and improver/stroke technique lessons in the main pool.

What does my child need to bring? Children should bring: • swimming costume • 20p for the locker • towel • goggles (optional) - these should be tight-fitting to prevent leaks

• • • •

name address ability level (if known) preferred day of lesson

If your child is already attending Les Quennevais Sports Centre then you will receive a re-enrolment form in the post before the start of the next term.

Nordic walking has been added to the activities provided by exercise referral instructors. Instructors Aly Bellee and Liz De La Haye successfully completed Nordic walking instructor training with Nordic Walking UK and have run a couple of 6 week courses since qualifying in the summer. The courses have been based at FB Fields and Les Quennevais Playing Fields but walks often take place away from these facilities. Nordic walking is a special technique that involves the use of poles to ensure that walkers utilise upper body muscles at the same time as using leg muscles. The poles assist the walker to move faster which results in them using more energy. It is an effective cross training method and is a great way to be sociable whilst exercising in the fresh air. Adjustable poles are provided by exercise referral for those attending courses, if you wish to buy your own set the instructors will provide you with information.

Tell me about exercise referral so I can access these activities Exercise referral is a 10 week programme of physical activity. It is aimed at people who are not used to physical activity and who have certain medical conditions. Exercise referral is accessible to people from the age of 16. There are regular sessions throughout the week at Fort Regent, Les Quennevais Sports Centre and Springfield Stadium. If you are interested in taking part in regular physical activity then you should

Update me

Technology reduces energy consumption

PITTER PATTER All the team would like to congratulate Laura Jacques on her great pregnancy news.

Article by: Alan Le Pavoux, Supervisor of Education, Sport and Leisure Facilities Langford and Oakfield Sports Centres

smaller than a mobile phone. I am pleased to say that they work brilliantly, use a fraction of the electricity and will not need to be replaced for at least ten years.

As this only takes place every 6 to 8 years it was an ideal opportunity to review our energy consumption to make some alterations and savings.

The lights in the changing room were fitted with energy saving light bulbs which aren’t as efficient as the newer LED’s. They had a nasty habit of becoming dimmer over time until we had what has been described as mood lighting. Although still using the same amount of electricity our customers sometimes found themselves in a dingy changing area. This required considerable number of man hours just changing bulbs. Not any more, we now have bright energy efficient LED units that will not fade and will not need replacing for at least 10 years, two savings, one in power and the other in labour.

Having considered the options we decided that it was best to reduce the amount of energy used where possible. As the pool was fitted with a highly effective pool cover during the build and the air heating unit is able to turn off the air heating at night when the pool is not in use, we could not make any savings there. We then looked at the filtration system and after running some tests it was decided that we could fit some voltage optimisers. These rather bland grey boxes have some very clever electronics inside that reduce the amount of energy consumed by the filtration pumps. This has resulted in an 80% reduction in the electricity used to filter the pool, a system that runs 24 hours a day. As part of the Sports Division’s environmental policy we also took the opportunity to change the lighting used in the pool hall changing rooms and reception areas. We removed the old pool up lighters with their inefficient bulbs which produced almost as much heat as light. These bulbs had a burn life of about 3 years and cost about £150 to replace. We have now introduced new LED units. When I saw these units I found it hard to believe that they would light the pool hall as in the centre of each was a small group of Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs)

The introduction of a recycling station has proved popular and enables us to separate waste at source and direct it to the appropriate places for recycling. We will be adding another unit to the lower ground floor as soon as funding is available and aim to recycle all possible waste by the end of next year. So how do you find out information on environmental issues? Take a look at our Eco-Active notice board. This is an educational initiative we have set up to provide our customers with relevant information both locally and globally. We will continue to develop and update this on a regular basis so if you visit Langford please stop to have a look as you may save yourself some time and money and help to save the planet for the next generation.

NOVEMBER MOVEMBER Fort Regent staff members grew moustaches for ‘Movember’ to raise money for cancers that affect men. The rules are simple, start November 1st clean shaven and then grow a moustache for an entire month. The moustache has become the ribbon for mens’ health. (Pictured from left to right: Dom Sampson, Ben Manning, Michael Le Vaillant, James Carson and Michael Donoghue).

Mrs Hamon has held an Active membership for 12 years. A member of the Fort Regent bowls club, Mrs Hamon attends the gym four times a week. Commenting on her win she said “This is the first time I have won anything. I am delighted though I will have to ask my grandchildren to set the gadget up for me.” Judy Rahman has only been an Active member for two months and living in the Springfield area, the centre is right on her doorstep. She is delighted to be one of the winners. Mr Walton has been an Active member for two years. He regularly uses both Fort Regent and Les Quennevais, making the most of the facilities available including the swimming pool.
