President’s Message

Dear Members:

Welcome our new pickleball pro Barry Ko. Barry was at our Make-A-Wish fundraiser and was a big hit. If you are interested in lessons from Barry, email him at kopickleball@gmail.com. He’s eager to improve your game.
With all the adverse publicity, the club is reluctantly skipping the Halloween Party this year. The focus seems to be on school and close to home participation. Sorry, sign of the times.
The transition to the new front desk check-in and billing software, as expected, isn’t going smoothly, there are a few ripples. The good news is that things are improving daily; we’re getting there, please be patient. If you experience any problems with your bill, please contact Boyd, the club’s bookkeeper, at bookkeeping@oaklandhills.com, he’s here to help.
The club’s open house party is scheduled for December 10, 5:30 – 7:30 PM. We are hoping for a large turnout, historically we’ve had as many as 400
attend. That may be optimistic this year but we are hoping you will be here. This ADULT event is free, a thank you to all of you.
Holiday hours are coming up for Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Eve and New Years Day – 8:00 AM – 3:00 PM, no babysitting.
This year is wrapping up fast. Where did all the time go?

Cordially,
Oakland Hills Tennis Club, Inc.
Jim Thompson, President

Get your heart pumping with the aerobic exercise, fast walking, or cycling for 35 minutes a week may improve thinking skills in seniors with cognitive impairments according to a study published in Neurology Medical Journal. OHTC offers six
aqua classes a week from beginner to more advanced. We have three instructors who teach twice a week. Classes are at 9AM Monday through Friday and 9:00am on Sundays. The class is open to everyone not just seniors!

Fitness Facts
Yulia Wynn, Director

Dear Members,

Let’s stay strong and healthy in 2022! There are many ways to do that. How about trying a fitness class? If you’ve never taken a group fitness class, then you’ve likely never experienced the many benefits, including extra motivation and friendly competition.

PERSONAL TRAINING WITHOUT THE HIGH COSTS
A group fitness class allows you to work with a fitness professional – minus the cash. While the trainer may not be available to you at all times in a large group class, they’re always there to answer questions when you have them. You can learn a lot just by watching and listening!

MOTIVATION AND ACCOUNTABILITY
Head to a group fitness class on the days you’re not motivated to work out. With a teacher telling you what to do, the session is less work for you, while still being effective.

GROUP FITNESS IS FUN. PERIOD.
One of the most popular reasons for taking a group fitness class is the simplest: they’re just plain fun! With music playing and everyone else working with you, sharing in the struggle and the success, it can feel more like a party than a workout.

COMPETITION AND CAMARADERIE
Everyone is “in it together” in a group fitness class, which naturally lends itself to camaraderie among members. For people who like to be social, this is an important factor. For those who are competitive, the social aspect is valuable because with a little camaraderie comes friendly competition, pushing you to work harder than the person next to you.

PREPARE FOR YOUR FIRST GROUP FITNESS CLASS
Bring a towel for sweating Bring a water bottle; Talk to the instructor before class if you have any questions or concerns. It’s good to tell the teacher if you have an injury of some kind, for example. Talk to other members. While this isn’t mandatory, other people may give your insight on what to expect as a first-timer.
More questions? E-mail me at groupfitness@oaklandhills.com
In health, Yulia Wynn / Group Fitness Director at OHTC

Group Fitness
Yulia Wynn, Director

Dear Members,
It happens each year: the dishes you’ve been craving all season long are finally passed around the table, and before you know it your plate is piled up to your head with turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes — all smothered with a heaping portion of gravy. It’s a masterpiece, yes. But it’s also a single meal that can total anywhere from 2,500 to 4,500 calories (nearly twice the
calories recommended daily). It’s not all bad news, though. That Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot will earn you a delicious slice of Mom’s apple pie. But you just might think twice about the gravy: a quarter-cup will cost you 50 burpees!
If you are hoping to start Thanksgiving morning with a tough workout, consider a high-intensity 60-minutes of cycling at 8 AM with Michelle! This class will get you more than ready to tuck into some turkey—all before 9 AM! Come and pedal off that extra energy!
Another way to use all that fuel before your hefty Thanksgiving meal—and that second plate as well—is heading to Sally’s class for the Thanksgiving Turkey Burn bootcamp at 9 AM. This 60-minute workout will utilize weights and equipment. While challenging, this bootcamp is designed to be doable for all fitness levels. Finally, Robin is hosting a 60-minute soulful slow flow Tai Chi
session at 10 AM.

Have you met Jaime yet?

For Jaime, nothing boosts her mood or productivity like a solid workout and regular yoga practice. As a NASM certified personal trainer and Yoga Alliance member, she prioritizes form, function, and purpose. Jaime safely leads you through movements to increase your strength and range of motion, concluding with appropriate cool down and relaxation techniques. When she’s not around the club, she is busy running around to care for her three young daughters. Take it from her, all the efforts spent in fitness and self-care
significantly enhance energy, patience and relationships!

Massage Messages

I have no doubt that most of you heard before that massage therapy can improve your overall health. But did you know that according to the National Institutes of Health, massage is used by more than 15 million adults in the US as a treatment for osteoarthritis? Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. Osteoarthritis occurs when the flexible tissue at the ends of bones wears down. A massage therapist can lightly stroke or knead the inflamed area to increase blood flow and release a soothing warmth.
When done by a trained massage therapist on carefully selected patients, massage therapy is a very valuable addition to traditional osteoarthritis treatments, says Valerie Voner, a licensed massage therapist, former coordinator of the massage therapy
program at Cape Cod Community College in West Barnstable, Massachusetts, and founder of the New England Institute of Reflexology and Universal Studies. Just be sure to talk to your doctor or physical therapist before giving it a try.
