   Dear Members,

          id you know that moderate exercise can help boost your
          immune system and prevent a cold from occurring? With
         colder weather upon us, there are several things that you
   can do here at the Club to avoid getting (or giving) colds and flu.

   Many of these practices can also prevent MSRA, a staph bacterium
   usually associated with hospitals and nursing homes, which has been surfacing in school settings recently.
   While health officials confirm that the risk of contracting MSRA in gyms is low, the Club continues to
   do its part by wiping down all equipment frequently and eliminating props, such as yoga mats, that are
   more difficult to clean.

   Here are some things you can do to help yourself and your fellow members:

   • Wipe down all exercise equipment after use—this includes cardio and weight equipment, exercise mats,
     Spinning bikes, etc.
   • Use the anti-bacterial hand sanitizers located in the group exercise studios and Fitness Center
   • Practice common etiquette—use a tissue to clear your nose/throat and refrain from using Club towels or
     the showers

   If you have symptoms of a cold with no fever (i.e., symptoms are above the neck), then moderate exercise
   is safe. If your symptoms indicate the flu (i.e., muscle aches, tiredness, swollen lymph glands), then you
   should wait a few weeks before you are feeling better to resume exercising.

   And of course, be sure you eat a balanced diet, get adequate sleep and avoid too much stress.

   In a recent New York Times article, Dr. Kent Aftergut, assistant clinical instructor of dermatology at
   the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, suggests sanitizing fitness equipment before use
   or put a towel over the bars. Dr. Kent also recommends not staying in hot sweaty clothes, which can be
   a breeding ground for bacteria, and using an antibacterial soap. Other suggestions include washing your
   hands often, using your own yoga mat and showering with flip-flops.

   We encourage you to use these tips to ensure your good health over the holiday season.

   Have a happy holiday! We look forward to serving you in the New Year.

T idb it s for the N ew Year
If you are like most, you spend the holidays contemplating what nutrition
and fitness changes you’d like to institute when the New Year hits. For some
of us, it’ll be spending more time at the Club, others will work on eating
smaller portions, and still others will work on one particular part of their
diet such as calories, vegetables or fats. No matter what your 2008
nutrition plans are, below are some tidbits to get you thinking.

… An average bagel is 300 calories or equal to 3 or 4 slices of bread.
… Broccoli is a good source of calcium in case you don’t like to drink milk.
… The average calorie need of an adult male is 2,500 per day. Female is 2,000.
… Bananas are a great source of the mineral potassium but so are potatoes.
… Smoothies often have 400 to 450 calories – the amount found in 6 pieces of fruit.
… Butter and margarine have about the same amount of fat and calories – just different kinds of fat.
… The average person eats less than 2 servings of vegetables per day but the goal is to have 3 to 5 servings per day.
… The nutrition in your meal can be judged by how many colors are on your plate. The more color, the more nutrients.
… Low fat cookies often have the same amount of calories as regular cookies. They replace the fat with more sugar!
… Wheat bread and white bread are the same thing except wheat bread has added molasses or caramel coloring
  to make it look dark like whole wheat bread.

Make Swimming More Fun
Each year more people swim more than
any other sport. Here are some different
ways to make swimming more entertaining.
1) Switch speeds. Don’t swim the same
pace for the entire workout. Mix it up with
slow, medium and fast laps.
2) Use the clock. Swim 50 yards, take a
10-second rest and repeat 8-10 times.
Keep your times consistent. Intervals keep
you honest and keeps your heart rate up.
3) Vary your strokes. If you normally
swim freestyle choose a different stroke or
work on different sets of muscles.              Swimming truly is a sport for life. Children have a natural affinity for the

     Making Wishes Come True Again
     This year’s Mr. PeeWee Benefit at Pacific Athletic Club raised
     more than $90,000 for the Greater Bay Area Make-A-Wish
     Foundation. Highlights include the Winemakers Reception,
     Black Tie Dinner and Pro Am Tennis Tournament. At the
     Black Tie Dinner, VIP Wish Kid Jericho Rajninger told of his
     wish to build a robot for other sick kids at UCSF Hospital. The
     Pro Am tournament featured tennis legends such as Scott Davis,
     David Pate, Don Johnson, and Bob Lutz. Paul Goldstein and
     Kannan Ayyar defeated David MacPherson and Michael Kaiser
     in the final match. We would like to thank all of our sponsors                       VIP Wish Kid “Jericho Rajninger and family
     for their generosity.
