October 31st, 2014 | No Comments | Posted in Health and Wellness

The Power Plate® Pro7™ is the perfect tool to step up your high-intensity interval training (HIIT) and get the results you are looking for fast. The Power Plate platform uses multi-directional vibrations to cause your muscles to rapidly contract and release. This stimulation helps build strength, improve circulation and balance and burn fat.

Experience the Power Plate and its many benefits for yourself. Try this fun Power Plate HIIT workout designed by ProMedica Wildwood Athletic Club’s master trainer, Sommer Vriezelaar.

NEW! Facial Rejuvenation Cupping

October 31st, 2014 | No Comments | Posted in Wildwood Athletic Club

NEW! Facial Rejuvenation CuppingCupping is considered to be one of the oldest natural healing therapies. History tells us that Archaeologists found evidence of cupping therapy being practiced as early as 3,000 BC.

Facial cupping is a traditional, time-honored treatment favored by millions worldwide because it’s safe, comfortable and remarkably effective. Women in Asia, Russia, and Europe have been utilizing this remarkable technique for rejuvenation and maintenance for many generations.

Small suction cups made expressly for the face are used during facial rejuvenation cupping to create a gentle vacuum which lifts the skin and facial tissue. Lifting the facial tissue activates lymphatic drainage to eliminate toxins, cellular waste and excess fluid in the face and neck. It moves out toxins and stagnant blood and ushers in new, nutrient-enriched blood and fluids to detoxify your face, thereby repairing and nourishing it. The invigorating action increases elastin and collagen, which softens line, wrinkles and scar tissue, revealing a more youthful appearance. In addition, facial cupping is also effective at draining your sinuses, dredging infection and inflammation, relieving pain following dental work, and treating acne.

For more information or to schedule a facial rejuvenation cupping massage, call the club at 419-539-0235.

Do you ever feel like there is not enough time to spend with your family and get the amount of activity into your life? Why not make exercise as a family activity? My daughter Rebecca and I have been working out together since the mid-90s when she was in high school. Our activities include group fitness classes, using the gym equipment and walking with other members of our family. In fact, Rebecca’s desire to become a group fitness instructor inspired me to do the same. We have attended many workshops together, including some of our group fitness certifications.

Exercising together allows us valuable time together while accomplishing our fitness goals. Because I am also full-time, fourth-grade teacher and Rebecca is busy raising four children of her own, our free time can be scarce. We use our workouts as a time to motivate each other as well as to catch up.

Look for Rebecca and me working out together at ProMedica Wildwood Athletic Club. If we are not working out together on the floor, you may find us in leading or participating in one of our group exercise classes. I teach Aqua Aerobics, Cycling, Group Active, and Yoga. Rebecca is an instructor for Group Power and PiYo. Bring along a family member the next time you are exercising and see how rewarding it can be.
