Member Testimonial: Brian Crouse

My journey began on September 22nd, 2019. My best friend called and during our conversation, she told me she had lost 80lbs in the last 8 months. She showed me a pic and she looked amazing. I was not about to have her show me up, so I asked "HOW?". She was eating healthy. She had cut out most carbs and sugars. I was 386lbs and had already thought about getting healthy; and this was the last straw.

Is That Boost Really Beneficial?

on May 2, 2019 3:07:32 PM By | The Alaska Club | 0 Comments | food workout diet fitness routine supplements
Trends are everywhere you look, and now we’re seeing more of them in the gym. It’s no longer where you wear your grungiest of clothes. Now, women and men are decked out in stylish and carefully tailored Gym Shark and Lululemon apparel. They could slay at the gym or even on a runway. Gym trends even transcend apparel and influence supporting workout items. Now you’ll see about 70% of the gym sporting large Beats headphones, a resistance band they bought with a social media influencer code, and one of those nifty looking shaker bottles.

Go on Autopilot

on Nov 2, 2018 9:33:07 AM By | Barbara DuBois | 0 Comments | swimming fitness fitness routine
For three years now, on an average of six days out of the week, you will find me in the Alaska Club pool sometime between 6:45 AM and 7:00 AM, everyday but Sunday. Some days I’m in the water for 20 minutes, some days for an hour. It is simply the most important thing I do to start my day. That kick-back-post-swim-rejuvenation feeling of well-being is so priceless, there is nothing like it. It’s an internal blast of energy that comes seemingly out of nowhere. Most swimmers experience this. I’m not the only one either who knows this and is consistently there at that seemingly ungodly hour. The regulars know each other by face, if not by name. We all have seen the same swim team members, various coaches, water-aerobic teachers, Richard the mechanic who works all night and me, the autopilot teacher. I say autopilot because I convinced myself about three years ago that I would be a better teacher, friend, colleague, wife and person if I peppered my life up with a pre-work work-out. Hence, I jump start my day with some smooth, gentle activity that energizes me in a seemingly non-arduous manner. Sometimes I swim in a lane with Richard and we discuss my crazy brother in Florida, or we just joke incessantly while swimming. The other morning another swimmer gingerly pointed out that my neck tie was precariously untied and we laughed raucously while discussing our mutually embarrassing water experiences. Many times, I simply am entranced in meditative swimming and zone out my surroundings.
