Club News Spa News What can I do about my skin discoloration? This question comes up repeatedly during the course of my day. The proper term is Hyperpigmentation, which is a common condition in which some areas of the skin become darker than the surrounding areas due to an excess of melanin. Hyperpigmentation is challenging to treat due to it’s complex and recurrent nature. It can however fade considerably over time with the use of skincare modalities that thin the skin and in so doing, reduce discoloration. A series of Chemical Peeling and Microdermabrasion individually or in combination therapy is generally my recommendation. In conjunction with professional treatment, the topical cream Hydroquinone can be applied to

assist in the lightening and fading of these areas. The proper and safe use of Hydroquinone should be discussed with your esthetician.

At Pro Karate Center we understand the problems unique to youngsters, and concerns parents naturally have. This well organized, professionally planned children’s Isshinryu program is designed to help parents in the task of  building a child’s self confidence, self discipline, positive outlook, and self esteem.

Fitness Tips Nutrition or Training Which Is More Important? By Tom Venuto, NSCA-CPT, CSCS www.burnthefat.com Legendary bodybuilding trainer Vince, “The Iron Guru” Gironda was famous for saying, “Bodybuilding is 80% nutrition?” Which is really more important, nutrition or training? This IS an interesting question and I believe there is a definite answer. The first thing I would say is that you cannot separate nutrition and training. The two work together synergistically. Regardless of your goals - gaining muscle, losing fat, athletic conditioning, whatever -you will get less than-optimal or even non-existent results without paying attention to both. In fact, I like to look at gaining muscle or losing fat in three parts - weight training, cardio training and nutrition - with each part like a leg of a three-legged stool pull ANY one of the legs off the stool, and guess what happens? Nutrition and training are both important, but at certain stages of your training progress, I do believe placing more attention on one component over the other can create larger improvements. If you’re a beginner and you don’t posses nutritional knowledge, then mastering nutrition is far more important than training and should become your number one priority. If you’re still eating lots of processed fats and refined sugars, cutting them out and replacing them with good fats like the omega threes found in fish and unrefined foods like fruits, vegetables and whole grains will make an enormous and noticeable difference in your physique very quickly. If your diet is low in protein, simply adding a complete protein food like Page 8

chicken breast, fish or egg whites at each meal will muscle you up quickly. The muscular and nervous systems of a beginner are unaccustomed to exercise. Therefore, just about any training program can cause muscle growth and strength development to occur because it’s all a “shock” to the untrained body. You can almost always find ways to tweak your nutrition to higher and higher levels, but once you’ve mastered all the nutritional basics, then further improvements in your diet don’t have as great of an impact as those initial important changes. At this point, as an intermediate or advanced trainee who has the nutrition in place, changes in your training become much more important, relatively speaking. The more advanced you become, the more crucial training progression and variation become because the well-trained body adapts so quickly. So, to answer the question, while nutrition is ALWAYS critically important, it’s more important to emphasize for the beginner (or the person whose diet is still a “mess”), while training is more important for the advanced person. Once you’ve mastered nutrition, then it’s all about keeping that nutrition consistent and progressively increasing the efficiency and intensity of your workouts, and mastering the art of planned workout variation, also known as “periodization.” The bottom line: There’s a saying among strength coaches and personal trainers...“You can’t outtrain a lousy diet!”

Keep a journal of how you feel after exercise. Keeping a journal that details how you feel after exercise can be powerfully inspiring. Detail your feelings of accomplishment, especially after a great workout. When you don’t feel like exercising, look back on the good workout days for some instant motivation, in your own words.

The number 1 goal for your return of serve is to get the ball in play. This is something many players unfortunately misunderstand! The return of serve is a difficult shot unless your opponent has a really bad serve. The ball is coming at you at a very different angle than you are used to from hitting ground strokes and you don’t get to hit many returns in a row to get into any kind of groove.

Those who don’t want to rely on the bigger, stronger, faster fighter approach to self-protection and fitness will find this unique program of skill development and life enhancement study very gratifying. True self-protection is bigger than just winning a physical fight. Winning in life involves overcoming personal obstacles and understanding yourself and those around you. The ability to skillfully manage verbal, emotional and psychological confrontation is not taught in most martial arts programs. These are standard lessons in the programs at Quest Martial Arts. Real Ninja training involves an in depth knowledge of the human Page 14

The Ninja developed a complete martial system hundreds of years ago which could easily be considered the original “mixed martial art”. Modern day Ninja like Grandmaster Stephen K. Hayes and Senior Master Mark Sentoshi Russo (owner of Quest Martial Arts in New Tampa) continue this tradition of adaptation to fit current changes. These changes affect the types of attacks one might face in a self-defense scenario. These modern Ninja Masters continue the tradition of sensible adaptation. The Ninja have always sought to live in harmony with nature and fellow man. However, when the safety and health of his family or himself, or the security of his community are threatened, there has never been a more effective agent than this legendary warrior. The modern Ninja credo at Quest Martial Arts is “Life Mastery Through Martial Arts.” Students are quick to describe how this unique training for body and mind result in a stronger spirit and a growing sense of control in their lives. Who doesn’t want that?

Time has passed. The word Ninja now appears in connection with everything from food processors to flea and tic medicines. People know the difference between a Ninja and a terrorist. Perhaps the time has come for us to step back into the light of day. In this age of sport and entertainment martial arts, where winning is based on age and athletic supremacy, people are wondering if there is a program of more practical selfprotection; one that is not dependent upon superior speed and strength, one that they might actually participate in. The answer is yes.

Ninjas continually perfected scientific methods for defeating opponents bigger, stronger, faster and perhaps better armed than themselves. Effective techniques, sensible use of surroundings and objects at hand, as well as strategic approaches to danger were the things that mattered when losing was not an option.

His heart stopped on June 6, 2012. And that’s where his

story begins.

It was a regular Thursday afternoon when Chuck felt his first symptoms — intense nausea, chest pain and profuse cold sweats. Sensing it was a heart attack, he asked his son to call 9-1-1. Chuck was rushed straight to the Florida Hospital Tampa ER. Their expert medical team never once gave up on Chuck. Not after he flatlined. Not after they tried four times to revive him. Not even after his

heart stopped for a full five minutes. At the Florida Hospital Pepin Heart

Institute, located at Florida Hospital Tampa, an emergency heart catheterization saved Because he was able to reach Florida Hospital Tampa in time, Chuck

Books for Troops

2nd Annual Book Drive Starting October 1st Books for Troops will be collecting paperback books for its annual book drive in support of deployed troops around the world and local veterans. This year volunteer support is being provided by the GFWC LutzPasco Junior Woman’s Club. “We are so excited about all of the community support we are receiving this year. Everyone is stepping up to participate in some way,” said Patricia Murphy, Executive Director of Books for Troops Tampa Bay. Books for Troops began as a project for the General Federation of Woman’s Clubs. In May 2011, while delivering magazines to the James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital

in Tampa, Murphy was approached by a young man in a wheelchair. “This young man that couldn’t have been more than 20 years old and had lost his leg in the war was thanking me. He said, “Being here, remembering has been so hard...the magazines help me get through it. Help me keep my mind off everything.” We chatted for a little while and he said he wished he had an outlet like reading while he was deployed. He wasn’t living on base then. He lived in a tent on the outskirts of a small village in Iraq.  “I thanked him for his service and as I stepped into the elevator I burst into tears.  When I got home I realized that this was a project that means something to people. It’s little but it makes a huge difference and that was the beginning of Books for Troops.” Since that day Books for Troops has shipped over 5000 books to troops overseas and delivered 2,000 books to local veterans. “It has been a pleasure and an honor to serve those that do so much for us every day,” said Murphy.

Volunteers from the GFWC Lutz Pasco Junior Woman’s Club & GFWC Lutz Land O Lakes Woman’s Club at the Books for Troops Book Drive Committee meeting.

a collection box or make a donation please contact Patricia Murphy for more information at BooksforTroops@verizon.net or friend them on Facebook.com/BooksforTroops GFWC Lutz-Pasco Junior Woman’s Club is accepting new members age 18 and above. Please visit their website for club and membership information on MeetUp.com. GFWC Lutz-Pasco Junior Woman’s Club is committed to community through volunteer service. Books for Troops Collection Sites

This year there will be collection sites throughout north tampa. “We are accepting action adventure, suspense, mystery, comedy & comic books. Any books that the Troops can read during their down time. The most important thing is that they are in very good condition. Some of the books will be delivered to hospitals and nursing homes and it is imparative that they are clean,” Murphy said, “We cannot accept books about religion, the apocalypse or pornographic materials.” “I would love it if other members of the community would show their support by collecting books at their businesses, offices or house of worship. Together we can make a difference.”

Tampa Palms Women’s Club

The Fall Season Starts

A

fter enjoying their summer break, the  Tampa Palms Women’s Club kicked off their fall season with a New Member Luncheon at Compton Park. Membership Chairperson Audrey Bartley introduced 8 new members and several guests who were curious about joining the group.  A nice group of guests mingled with new and existing members. The guests were given  a small potted flower to nurture and grow. This gesture did not go unnoticed as some guests signed up to join for the year. President Ginny Welch presided over the group and introduced each officer to discuss their upcoming projects for the fall. Following the

meeting, guests and members enjoyed a sumptuous pot luck luncheon. The first fundraising activity is the Annual Tampa Palms Womens Club ‘Arts and Crafts Under the Palms’ art festival. It will be October 20th & 21st from 10 am to 4 pm at Market Square,  where BJs is located (Bruce B. Downs and I-75).This exciting event will feature artists and crafters from all over Florida displaying their original works of pottery, jewelry, flowers, wood carvings and many other unique items.   As in previous years, there will be vendors stimulating your senses with hot dogs, hamburgers, kettle corn, cookies, snow cones, salads,

and frozen treats. There will be free face painting for the children.  Please mark your calendars for this two day event and plan to bring your family and friends to start your holiday shopping. Proceeds go to support the many charities that TPWC donates to throughout the year, including Pedal Power, Kids and Canines and Hillsborough House of Hope. Applications are now being taken for vendors wishing to participate in this two day show. This is an excellent opportunity for artists and crafters to display and sell their original work. Besides all the volunteering and fundraising, the group also visits local businesses each month. In September,
