WHAT'S HAPPENING AT THE CLUB?
It's picture day at the club! We will be having photo shoot throughout the club tomorrow, Tuesday, October 5th. We would love for you to be a part of it. Come and join us for your regular schedule; whatever it is you like to do on Tuesdays. We encourage you to wear a bright, happy outfit for the day and bring your best smile! Group Fit classes, the weight room, adult tennis, and childcare will mostly be photographed and filmed in the morning. Kids classes, kids club, tennis and 4300 will be in the afternoon.
If you are a little camera shy, no worries, still come to the gym and enjoy your favorite activities and if the photographer comes by, just give him a thumbs down and he'll skip you. If you don't mind being in pictures, please fill out a Model Release form so that we can use your picture in the club, in our marketing and/or on social media. If you have any questions or concerns, you may reach out to Mickenzie at [email protected].
ELEVATED NUTRITION: REAL CLIENT – REAL RESULTS
Ethan just finished a 3 month Nutrition program with Krystykka at Elevated Nutrition. We asked him to share with us a little of what his experience was like. While creating change in our diet is not always a favorite topic for many people, Ethan saw some major successes. They were real changes he saw in himself: more energy, more attentive and successful at work, and healthy eating becoming an enjoyable and preferred lifestyle. Things that last, things that make you change the way you look at the world; through a bright, new, healthy lens!
What did you like best about nutrition coaching?
Krystykka set realistic expectations and ideals for nutrition. Before going into being coached by Krystykka, I thought I had a decent ideal of what good nutrition was. After certain suggestions were made my mind opened about what nutrition is about. It was nice to see day to day activity of tracking and seeing the overall intake of the day. It is a challenge to avoid eating unhealthily but with the fantastic help from Elevated Nutrition it seemed to be less of an obstacle to deal with.
How do you feel like you changed? Mentally, physically, overall health?
After changing aspects of my diet and taking awesome suggestions from Krystykka, my overall day to day was better. I felt more energized in the morning, and throughout the day. My workouts were becoming easier to get through and I hit major personal records in lifting and running! I was on point and very attentive during work and my studies.
What do you think was the most helpful about working with Elevated Nutrition/Krystykka?
Krystykka is very straight forward, and very real about nutrition. She is not afraid to tell you how it is, which is not a bad thing at all. Elevated Nutrition was able to give great perspectives during the nutrition coaching process. Being able to meet and communicate with Krystykka made the coaching process very enjoyable. Overall, the working with Elevated Nutrition, and Krystykka was a fantastic time.
What did you learn most about yourself?
I learned that eating healthy wasn't as hard as I made it out to be. As easy as it can be to go out and get something unhealthy to eat; it was easier to cook a healthy meal at home that contributed to my fitness goals! I learned that I enjoyed healthy foods more than I did unhealthy. After I got used to eating heathy, eating unhealthy would just throw my whole day off!
Would you recommend Elevated Nutrition to a friend? Why or why not?
Absolutely! Krystykka is a fantastic nutrition coach who cares about your fitness and nutrition goals. The opened end communication was always on point! Going to consult to make a game plan was as easy as it could be! All questions were answered promptly and honestly! Anyone who is looking for a realistic nutrition plan, Elevated Nutrition is the way to go.
MEMBER SPOTLIGHT: BRING ON THE COMPETITION
Last month OAC members David Johnson, Shalece Sanders, Leon Gardner, Joseph Nielson, and Ethan Sunday (left to right) competed at the USPA Drug Tested Western States Championship and Joseph in the USPA Utah State Championship the next day. If you have ever been in the weight room or 4300' SC any given morning, you may have bumped into one of these powerhouses.
David competed in the 198# Men's Masters 65-69 division. Between Squat (253lbs.), Bench (176lbs.) and Deadlift (347lbs.) he lifted a total of 777 lbs. He won his division and set Utah State records in all three individual lifts and total pounds!
Shalece signed up for just about every division available to women, and with good reason, she just about swept the house. Her lifts included Squat (181lbs.), Bench (165lbs.) and Deadlift (292lbs), totalling 639 pounds. She brought home so many medals (6 total), had she not been a powerlifting champion, it would have been tough just to carry them all home! She took Gold in Bench Press Masters division and set a state record.
What Leon lacks in sight; he makes up for in strength. Although blind, Leon set unprecedented records for his age and experience. Pound for pound Leon was the strongest man at the competition! He won the Best Lifter award for the entire Master division (everyone over 40). The judges apply a formula to compare lifters of different weight classes to determine the best pound-for-pound lifter. He out-totaled all of the other lifters but one, outscoring a man almost half his age. Not only did he achieve a bench press personal best (248lbs), but also set a national record in the Master's division. Leon is proof that there are no excuses for, nor limits to, what one can achieve.
This was Ethan's first powerlifting meet ever. He successfully set a personal record by deadlifting 501 lbs.
Finally, Joseph competed in the 275# Mens Master 40-44 Full Power and Bench categories. His lifts, including Squat (446lbs), Bench (380lbs.) and Deadlift (507lbs.) came to a grand total of 1,333lbs. He placed second in full power and first in bench by setting his own PR and a new state record! He now has his sights set on his next Strong Man competition. It's a great day when your hard work pays off. Congratulations to each of these hardworking and talented athletes on their great accomplishments!
A CELEBRATION A YEAR IN THE MAKING
September 8, 2020 was a crazy day for Northern Utah. Trees blew over, roofs blew off, trampolines skittered across roads, fences tumbled to the ground and at the Ogden Athletic Club our tennis bubble collapsed. But now one year later we're here celebrating a successful and beautiful recovery. We want to thank all those who helped us celebrate the grand opening of The Dome. From the Weber/Ogden Chamber Strikers, to the members and future tennis stars, to the Weber State Tennis Team and the staff at the OAC, it was a celebration of the beginning of a new era of Tennis at the OAC. Thank you for being a part of it!
As the weather turns colder and fall sports end, get your kids started in something they can play all year round! With state-of-the-art indoor tennis facilities and lessons offered daily, your child will learn a sport that they can play for a lifetime, even during the winter!
