JEFF MAYERS

GENERAL MANAGER

Dear Members, ver the past six years, I have found the membership survey has been instrumental for the club’s management team and staff. While in the early years the number of responses were rather minimal, this number of members who have sent in their surveys has grown exponentially over the years. I can assure you the feedback received is beneficial for the future as every department that is incorporated into the survey will draft strategies based on the feedback provided. Examples of the suggestions that have been implemented include the Club in the Club concept and new member events.

O

As I have learned from experience over the years, stagnation will only set an organization back and the thoughts members share will only benefit our endeavor which is to constantly improve the offerings and services that are provided. Therefore, I hope that you take the time to provide your thoughts and suggestions that will benefit our club in the future.

8

Based on the feedback that is received, I will make it a point to provide updates in future Club Experience publications as to the path that will be taken for the future. I truly believe that it is imperative that our members have a voice and one that will be heard. In closing, I sincerely appreciate your membership. I will continue to work with the club’s management staff to provide our members with a most enjoyable club experience. Sincerely,

Jeff Meyers General Manager

WELLNESS:

A Lifestyle Choice By Jeff Mayers

W

hen we think of wellness, what comes to mind? How would you define wellness? Are there different types of wellness? These are all great questions and the answers to these questions will vary. Wellness stretches across many platforms. Finding what wellness means to you should have a positive impact on your lifestyle and well-being.

As we take a look into wellness, one writer shared that there is not a universally accepted definition of wellness.(1) When exploring definitions, seven different publications provided broadly defined interpretations. For example, one definition is “The quality of state of being in good health especially in an actively sought goal.(2)” Another definition is “An active process through which people become aware of, and make choices toward, a more successful existence.(3)” However when taking into consideration each of the seven definitions, there are some commonalities. These include the following; a choice one pursues, a positive outlook on your body, mind and soul and finally a quality, state or process.(4) Studies continue to support that exercise at any age provides multiple benefits even beyond weight control and weight loss, from preventing osteoporosis to relieving stress and promoting heart health.(5) Depending upon your age,

you can determine the best approach to take. For example at the age of 40, you may require a low impact workout whereas you burn calories. As you progress in life, your workout regimen should change, however remaining active will no doubt impact your life. Wellness is a lifestyle choice and one that can have a profound impact on your health and well-being. Understanding the importance, the club’s management and staff continue to innovate and create new approaches with wellness in mind. The variety of offerings which include Massage, Reflexology, Fitness and Wellness are complimented by the varieties of menu offerings at the club’s restaurants. As you read the subsequent articles, you will be provided an overview of what is offered throughout the club that you may find to benefit your overall well-being. As always, the resort management and staff are open to new ideas and suggestions that will benefit the membership. 1. Ryan Corte, OD What is Wellness and Why is it Important? 2. Merriam-Webster 3.

Lifestyle Dining By Robert Weil

W

hen it comes to health and wellness awareness, diet is quickly becoming front and center. More and more people are making diet part of their lifestyle. This healthier focus has resulted in an increase of varied food requests as they pertain to each individual’s needs. In addition, many Americans are becoming aware of food allergies. Now more than 15 million Americans have been restricted by food allergies. Over 90% Vegetarian of those food-allergies are a result of the eight most common food allergens; peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, dairy, eggs, wheat, and soy. Food intolerances are also becoming increasingly common–where they are not Gluten-Free necessarily life-threatening as an allergy— they can ruin your day.

Nearly one-third of meals eaten by the average American are consumed away from home. In our restaurants every day, at every meal period, the frequency of requests is growing. The multitude of diet trends like Dairy-Free low carb, sugar-free, low fat, Keto, and Paleo has gained popularity. Even lifestyle choices like Vegan, Vegetarian, and just plain food preferences based on personal likes and dislikes have been on the incline over the last several years. How do your club’s restaurants handle the surge of dietary restrictions and requests? We choose to do more by offering alternative substitutions and accommodating requests, rather than having multiple menus to cover the dietary needs. This way we are not narrowing choices in any one direction.

21 | CLUB EXPERIENCE MAGAZINE

Spring/Summer 2019


Our culinary team tries to be as flexible as possible with special requests; just ask your server, as many members and guests already know. Although our menus offer a variety of dishes directed toward specific dining requirements–often identifying those menu items with a symbol, we feel it’s our flexibility and the alternative products we offer (i.e. gluten-free breads, pizza, pasta, and cauliflower rice) that provide the most options.

We also allow for dish or menu modification. Just understand, this often requires additional time as we will be catering prepared ingredients to specific needs or requests. When it comes to allergens or health-based food intolerance, whenever and wherever your dining, be an advocate for yourself. When it involves food allergies, please be as clear with the server as you can. In addition, given the needs, we will also have a manager drop by the table to ensure these things are correct. Our aim is to make your dining experience as pleasurable and safe as we can.

Lisa Deschler | Massage Therapist

Deep Tissue Massage When you think about getting a massage, your mind probably imagines relaxing music, and the soft lulling motions of hands rubbing the stress from your back, neck, and shoulders. Spending a relaxing day at The Spa is by far a good way to do just that, but what about the benefits behind getting a massage? Unlike other massage techniques that focus on relaxation, deep tissue massage helps to treat the cause of pain by releasing muscle tension and focusing more on the deeper layers of muscle and fascia–the protective layer that surrounds muscles and joints. These deeper tissues can form knots and adhesions that can limit movement and hinder circulation. Deep tissue massage is known to alleviate aches, stiff neck, upper, and lower back pain, muscle tightness, sciatica, tennis elbow, fibromyalgia or arthritic pain.

Lisa grew up in Boston, Massachusetts; studied in California, then resided for twenty years in Europe. She is fluent in German. Her passion is Deep Tissue Massage using Neuro-muscular strokes. As a runner herself, she can relate to muscle soreness due to tough workouts. Another favorite of Lisa's is the Swedish Massage and the various Rituals we offer at the Spa. She enjoys having more time with the client which allows them to maximize their relaxation. Her main goal is to make sure that the client leaves The Spa feeling great and looking forward to their next appointment!

Karla Harris | Massage Therapist Karla started working at the Longboat Key Club over 13 years ago. Graduating from Sarasota School of Massage Therapy in 2008, she has been in practice for 11 years. During her career, she has become specialized in deep tissue as well as sports massage, with certifications in active isolated stretching (AIS, Mattes Method) trigger point and neuromuscular therapy, and other modalities as hot stone, bamboo massage, aromatherapy, and Swedish massage. Caring about every client is her main goal and to help them release stressful tension while leaving healthy and feeling relaxed.

At The Spa, we offer members and guests the opportunity to take advantage of services that can help to alleviate or manage chronic pain. We have eight licensed massage therapists with significant training in deep tissue massage. Services are offered in 50, 80 or 100-minutes.

Reflexology

Whether you play golf, bounce around the tennis courts, workout at the gym, or anything in between, there's a lot of weight and stress being put on your hands and feet each day. Reflexology is a relaxing therapy that can be used as an option for pain relief through a pressure point massage technique. This technique utilizes the feet, hands, and ears corresponding to areas of the body through pressure point manipulation. Imagine there are strings connecting areas of your body to specific zones located on your hands, feet, and ears and these areas of your body can be adjusted or managed through these zones. Reflexology has been used for thousands of years as an alternative treatment for a variety of conditions and is also known to stimulate the central nervous system, nerve function, increase energy, and boost circulation. Treatments can also be used to prevent migraines, back pain, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, insomnia, and digestive disorders. While people that suffer from injury or surgery can see a reduction in recovery time, people that suffer from sleep disorders, and depression may also see improvements. The benefits can go on. The Spa currently offers a range for service in 30 or 50-minute increments.

What about Steam?

The relaxing scent of eucalyptus and essential oils can be caught as you enter the tranquil separate steam rooms located in both the men's and women's spa locker rooms. There are many benefits to utilizing a steam room beyond the relaxation it provides. People who bask in steam often experience toxin release, and tension removal, while it is also known to open sinuses and promote healthy blood flow.

Benefits of a regular fitness routine include increased energy, stronger muscles and bones, better sleep, improved mood and mental health, and weight management which in effect, can help to combat certain diseases and increase your life span. If you are not out practicing your serve at The Tennis Gardens or perfecting your swing on the golf course, the fitness center is the place to be. Whether your focus is on improving your balance, stretching, endurance, high or low aerobic activity, or strength training, there is something to suit every need. Our Mind & Motion studio has increased the number of fitness classes to 55 per week. For those who enjoy the great outdoors, we offer Beach Yoga, Get Active, Beach Boot Camp, Splash Fitness, and Aqua Tai Chi. Member favorites include Piloxing (a combination of Pilates and boxing), Zumba, HIIT (high-intensity interval training), Vinyasa Yoga, and Stretchable You. These classes fill up quickly so make your reservations early.

If a group setting is not your preference, our personal trainers are available to assist you with your individual fitness goals. This year we have added many new pieces of equipment including a Prone Leg Curl, Tricep Extension, Angled Leg Press, Back Extension and two Adaptive Motion Trainer Ellipticals. We also have new logo dumbbells, medicine balls, and yoga blankets. So come on into the Fitness Center to jumpstart or continue your wellness journey!

Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) Q & A with Alisa Zavala

Personal Trainer, AIS Specialist, Group Exercise Instructor

Q: How do clients benefit the most from AIS? A: It increases the range of motion and mobility. It’s different than standard stretching and It feels great and helps to continue sports and a active lifestyle. The “lengthen and strengthen” is the best way to describe the basis of this style.

Q: Why is it a modality you chose to specialize in? A: I have to thank my clients and Longboat Key Club member for encouraging me to study AIS. Once I took the beginning AIS practitioner certification, I was hooked. Prior to this, I studied massage therapy at Sarasota School of Massage Therapy so I had a “feel” for it. With Arron Mattes as the creator/instructor as a mentor, I pursued the Advanced AIS Practioner certification.

Q: If someone is considering an AIS session, what would you say to them to persuade them to try it once? A: I’m excited daily on the progress and improvements my clients and I are seeing.
