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.

So I'm injured: now what?

Whether this is a surprise to you or not, I am here to tell you that often no matter how “fit” people think you are or how careful you think you are being with your body, it is likely that at some point you will experience an injury.

Fishing, Running, and Sunshine: The Keys to a Successful Ski Season

Summertime in Alaska is crazy. We all go into overdrive, and it seems like for most of us, the level of activity ramps up with the increase in sunlight. As a professional cross-country ski racer, summertime is actually the part of the year when I have to train the most. In our sport, it takes so long to make improvements that we need every workout, every day we can get, in order to get faster by next season. We train May through November, then compete almost every weekend December-March while training every day to prepare for the big events. After the Olympics in Korea in 2018, where I finished a career best 6th place in the Team Sprint event, I am more motivated than ever to train as hard as possible. Unfortunately, or fortunately, this means I somehow have to find a way to mesh the demands of training two or even three times a day with the summertime Alaskan lifestyle.

Less Screen Time, More Play Time

Just two weeks ago, I attended an education conference in New York City on learning and brain activity in youth and children. The chief concern at this conference was the preponderance of screen time, primarily cell phone usage, teachers witness among their students. While studies have not made a direct correlation to the rise of anxiety and depression seen among children and youth to electronic device habits, bullying and obesity have been positively correlated to cell phone usage by these groups. Consistent with these findings is a greater sense of social alienation found among children and teens who are now logging long hours on their electronic devices and becoming sleep-deprived in the process.

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.

New Year Resolution: Ditch the Fitness Resolutions

on Jan 12, 2018 10:35:47 AM By | The Alaska Club | 0 Comments | New Year's Resolution workout healthy living weight loss
New year, new you. It’s easy to tell yourself this will be the year you wake up every morning to work out, stop eating fast food and give up soda cold turkey. But after two weeks of a jam-packed gym post New Year’s, the crowd soon dwindles back down to the regulars and we find ourselves ordering a diet Coke in the nearest drive-thru. In fact, one-third of New Year’s resolutions don’t make it passed January.

Gear Up For Goals

Gym clothes. You have to admit, even when you’re cramming your 20 pairs of leggings or tanks into a drawer, it won’t stop you from buying more. It just seems we can never have enough. But are we buying the right clothes? We can all admit, sometimes we go for style over practicality, which begs the question, what should you really be looking for in your gym apparel?
