Favorite Distance

Even though I’ve done more half marathons than any other race distance, truth be told, my favorite distances are 5 and 10 miles.

Countering Aging

on May 7, 2024 9:03:14 AM By | Barbara DuBois | 0 Comments |
When it comes to health and fitness, senior citizens are in a decidedly different realm from their younger peers. The facts seem dire but are not irreconcilable with a healthy lifestyle. Bones are drier. Joints are not only dry but possibly arthritic. Reflex time is not as sharp. Metabolism has slowed. Tolerance for cold is diminished, but so is tolerance for heat. There are many biological reasons for this.

NYC Marathon for ALS

on May 1, 2024 1:32:55 PM By | Janet Warner, Executive Director of Fitness Services | 0 Comments | Augie's Quest
I did something this week that I was certain I would NEVER do. I signed up to run a marathon. Not just any marathon – the New York City Marathon. Whenever I’ve been asked “are you gonna run a marathon now”, my reply has always been, I’m only half crazy. Yes, I’ve run several half marathons. However, as I crossed the finish line I’ve never thought, gee I wish I could do that again - right now. I’m also very aware of and respectful of what it takes to train for and run a marathon. It’s a commitment.

The Loneliness Epidemic: Strategies for Thriving in Alaska's Winter

on Feb 14, 2024 1:35:23 PM By | Barbara DuBois | 0 Comments | Community mental health winter
Let’s be real. Winter is hard in Alaska. It may pose opportunities to do sports outside that we otherwise would not do such as skating, hockey, snowboarding, skiing, cross country skiing, skate skiing, but it is still hard. The ice, the cold, the darkness, the sense of being boxed in-otherwise known as cabin fever, the feeling of isolation all means we need to try harder to do what we need to do to stay happy and healthy.

Start Your New Year with “Superfoods”

on Jan 9, 2024 10:13:53 AM By | Elize Rumsley – RD, LD, CDE, MS, PhD. | 0 Comments |
"Superfoods" is a term used by lay people to advocate for foods that are rich in nutrients and claim health benefits due to their high content of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other beneficial compounds. Every year the food industry recognizes one food as being the “superfood” and then you see a range of that food product in the market. While the term "superfood" is a marketing term and not a scientific classification, the experts agree that consuming nutrient-dense foods can contribute to overall health and well-being. The key is to incorporate the whole food itself into the diet. Highly marketed processed products are often an expensive gimmick.

As we commence the New Year with aspirations to do better, we know that most people who make resolutions, particularly in matters of health, fail. Fully 95% of people who go on a diet, do not achieve their goal. Many even gain weight in the process. There is definitely a better way. Success is at hand, and it is done one day at a time.

Holiday Survival Tips

on Nov 30, 2023 10:56:48 AM By | Barbara DuBois | 0 Comments |
Let’s take a look at how we can better navigate the holidays. The holidays should not be fraught with self-remorse in ostensible lapses in our otherwise general positive health practices. When we were kids, Christmas was the pinnacle of the year. Fond memories abound of mom’s homemade cookies, grandma’s pecan pies, and dad’s basted turkey. The holidays had this aura of hustle and bustle with visitors, family gatherings, decorating of the tree, concerts, and the alluring mountain of gifts. As kids we were so excited, we were ready to pop. Little did we understand the heavy load that burdened our parents with all the preparations. Just the shopping list alone was daunting, let alone the baking, decorating, gift wrapping, card writing, and driving kids hither, thither, and yon. Choir practice, dance rehearsals, parties, and the never-ending-days stacked with events seemed to add on more responsibilities, and strain to the already harried work-a-day world.

There’s nothing like basking in the glow of a great workout. You likely worked up a good sweat, relieved some stress, and got your endorphins flowing. After a shower and a nutritious post-workout meal, you should also consider taking time out to recover. I asked Fitness Director for TAC West/Club for Women, Personal Trainer, and Group Fitness instructor Stacey Ledgerwood for some tips on getting the most out of your rest days.

I don’t have the time to work out!

That was my reasoning for not getting in a steady rhythm of working my body for years. Between being a wife, mom of two young kids (and thus a constant house cleaner), and a full time REALTOR there was always a reason I could find to not put in the effort to get my body moving. I would try a group fitness class here and there. I would try on my own to go in and just jog. The will to go back always petered out.

What, When and How You Eat Matters

I recently returned from a conference and there were lot of discussions around weight management using the new medication Ozempic. Unfortunately, if you do not change what, when and how you eat, you may be disappointed with the result and will learn quickly that this is not a magic drug for all. Also, as soon as you quit taking the medication, all the weight may come back.

Discover Your Strength

I remember the first time I tried Group Power. I walked into the West club’s group fitness room full of people who seemed to know exactly which weights to grab off the racks, how many, and how to set up their bar and bench just right. My head filled with thoughts like what if I lift too heavy or not enough? What if I drop my weighty bar on myself or even worse, someone else? How sore will I be tomorrow? Fast forward more than 10 years, Group Power is one of my favorite classes and I now consider strength training a must in my regular fitness rotation. Whether you enjoy the camaraderie of a Group Power class, prefer to strength train solo or with a personal trainer, chances are you too, were once unsure how to add weights to your workouts.

The components of good health are myriad. One can think of them as a mosaic or a quilt, or maybe a work of Picasso or Monet, multiple colors, varying segments, merging, and blending into one wholistic, interacting, non-separable entity. You know the ingredients or patches and patterns well as you have heard them all so often: a good night’s sleep, movement, stretching, strength training, a nutrient-rich diet of water-based foods rich in roughage, antioxidants, and all manner of numerous undetected healthful components.

The Fresh Face of Spring

When I read that The Alaska Club was now offering Hydrafacials, I immediately made an appointment. Though I’d never had a HydraFacial, the benefits sounded like the very things my skin needs during this time of year: rejuvenation, exfoliation and hydration. After a long winter of outdoor sports, indoor classes at The Alaska Club and slathering my face with whatever moisture I can get my hands on, my skin is weathered, dull and tired. As a busy mom of three teenagers, I rarely take time for me and only me, but having this HydraFacial was the best hour I spent all month. I have been sharing the experience with all my girlfriends and now I am excited to share it with you all, too.

Movement is Medicine

Mental health is a cooking hot topic commanding attention in the halls of Congress, the schools, the churches, the workplaces and literally every major institution across the land. The most important recent study to come out on mental health was just published by the British Journal of Medicine on February 16. The findings? Movement is medicine! Physical activity has such a profound impact on mental health that the researchers who conducted the study at the University of Australia discovered that “…physical activity is 1.5 times more helpful than therapy or leading medications for reducing symptoms of depression, anxiety and distress.” The mind-body connection has long been well-known, but the degree of physical activities’ effectiveness is now without a doubt.

Exercise Snacks & Physical Health

How many snacks do you take in a day? If you’re taking exercise snacks, indulge all you want. Exercise snacks are defined as short bursts of movement. They can be as simple as climbing stairs instead of taking an elevator or standing up from your work desk to do wall pushups or a series of squats. The time you spend is short, but according to research, the benefits are great.

Coronary heart disease (CAD) is the most common type of heart disease in the US and continues to be the leading cause of death in the country. Changing lifestyle behavior by choosing healthier foods, being physically active, losing weight and quitting tobacco are the keys to prevention and management of this condition. It is not as difficult as you might think! Instead of making big changes all at once, try to make one small change at a time and try to be consistent on a daily basis.

Be a healthier, happier you this year!

on Jan 16, 2023 2:13:27 PM By | Barbara DuBois | 0 Comments |
Strategy and motivation are everything when it comes to keeping New Year’s health resolutions. I’d like to tell you that it is simple but change rarely is as we are battling a lifetime of habits. Health, sports, and psychology journals are replete with articles on motivation and the human psyche. Much to my surprise, when I was interviewing world class athletes for my doctoral dissertation, motivation was a frequent theme that came up. I always thought elite athletes were just driven people with no need of motivational techniques whatsoever. Au contraire. The methods that these successful athletes use are not just ones that are beneficial to world class sportsmen and women but are applicable to average-everyday-citizens also. Using the templet of Northwestern Medicine’s article’s suggestions in, “Successful Strategies to Meet Your Goals,” (and my own commentary,) the tools are clearly workable for anyone, elite athlete or average-everyday-citizen.

Avoid Stress Eating Over the Holidays

The joys of the holiday season are usually paired with the stress of trying to do last-minute shopping, preparing for gatherings or visitors, travel or the rush to send out holiday greeting cards. Unfortunately, this stress contributes to making poor dietary choices. With so many high calorie holiday treats offered at social events during the holiday season, the temptation to partake is irresistible. For many people, weight shed during the year mysteriously returns come January. Each year the cycle repeats; but, it is possible to break the cycle. Why not enjoy these annual festivities without feeling guilty on January 2nd? Here are some tips to consider:

Be Prepared, the Alaskan Winter is Almost Here!

No doubt about it, winter is around the corner. This means a whole host of measures are in the works for Alaskans to get ready. Getting ready for winter means a wide variety of preparations. We drilled hooks into our garage ceiling to hang the bikes up and make room for one of the cars. The chimney will get inspected, the fireplace cleaned, and wood delivered. Carpets are shampooed, closets sorted out. Coats are donated to the homeless shelters along with hats, gloves, and scarves. The tires on the cars have been replaced with studded tires along with the oil changed and the various fluids checked. The pantry has been well stocked with non-perishable foods to reduce driving on ice and facilitate the ease of making meals. My neighbors are even insulating their garage and ceilings to reduce their heating costs.

Why I Run

I have been asked many times why I smile when I run. Truthfully, I have no idea, and in fact, I don’t even know that I am smiling when I run 90% of the time. I can tell you that I have loved running for more than 30 years and sincerely hope I have at least 20 more years left in these legs. My running routine was acquired over time, but the smile comes naturally along with those jogging steps.

Summer in Alaska is the perfect time for outdoor activities, and going fishing is one of them. We are fortunate to have an abundance of different types of fish here, and I hope you had the chance to harvest your own. For the first time this year, I caught my weight in red salmon. While fishing, it was delightful to hear people exchanging recipes on the beach. Another popular topic was the health benefits of salmon.

Easy Ways to Spend More Time Outside

There is nothing like a stretch of summer sunshine to inspire Alaskans to venture outside. For some, it’s difficult to transition to new routines and new outdoor options. I get it! You like your gym routine, don’t want to get dirty, don’t have the right shoes/equipment … trust me, I have said all those things and more to talk myself out of going, but over time I have realized that there are just so many ways to get after it in Alaska and summers are short, so we must take advantage of every opportunity. Despite the good weather, motivation can still be an issue, and I also hear you on that one. I polled my family and some friends for recommended strategies and outings for these warmer temps.

I was in “advanced maternal age” when I had my first baby, so my husband and I went for it and had two more without thinking about it because we didn’t have time to waste. Parenthood is amazing in all the ways everyone promised it would be, except it isn’t always amazing for the workout routine! I am happy to share some strategies I employed to survive and stay in sort-of “good” shape and sane…. And also share some of my favorite moments doing events with my kids.

On May 14th, I had the honor of participating in the Mrs. Alaska 2022 pageant facilitated by the generous sponsorship of the Alaska Club. While I did not win the title, I won something that, in my view, is far more prestigious– the “Woman of Achievement 2022” award. This title is given to those who the judges considered worthy of recognition for their life’s accomplishments, and I am honored to have received it. When I entered the pageant, I was ambivalent about winning anything. Still, I felt drawn to the pageant’s emphasis on women having a strong sense of mission, physical fitness, and the resulting elevation of their self-esteem.

Itchy mouth after eating raw fruits and vegetables?

Spring is here, and so is the pollen! Did your doctor tell you that you are allergic to trees, grass, or weeds pollen? You're used to the usual symptoms; breathing problems, sneezing attacks, and teary, itchy eyes. But then you notice that some fresh fruits, vegetables, and tree nuts are starting to cause an itchy mouth, scratchy throat, itchy ears, and swelling of the lips, mouth, tongue, and throat— even when there is no pollen around? You may have something called oral allergy syndrome.

Early Risers Get the Worm!

Are you an early bird or a night owl? Most people are a moderate hybrid of these two choices but there are extremes in either direction. I, for one, am a semi-early bird. I get up around 6:00 AM, but I’m not exactly a fast mover when I do get up! My husband is a night owl, but he will get up long before I do anyway, except for weekends. Either way, daylight savings time is currently allowing us more time in the evening to spend hours outside. Plus, the additional light we have been gaining makes it easier to get out of bed early.
