Magnuson Athletic Club is teaming up with Basic Athletic Measurement (BAM) to test and measure youth athletes’ power, speed, agility, muscular endurance, and core strength. The combine will focus on soccer tests, but all athletes are welcome! These scores can be used for setting goals, evaluating progress, and benchmarking.
Registration is open at the MAC front host desk!
Open to ages 12-18 years for members and non-members.
Why attend the combine?
• Measure your athletic performance with the same system used by the NBA Draft Combine.
• Get accurate, reliable measurements from an unbiased third party with 25 years of experience testing elite athletes.
• Compare your measurements with other top athletes in the region.
• Understand how your results compare with those of elite athletes and use this data to set goals and optimize your training regimen.
• Collect valuable information that can be used in the prevention of injury and in rehabilitation.
• Improve your “discoverability” by taking part in a process that helps athletes maximize their performance and helps coaches find athletes that fit their needs.
Recognizable by his self-described “nerd glasses,” Gian-Carlo first discovered the MAC as a member, but soon decided it was a place he wanted to be a bigger part of. “From the moment I stepped into the MAC, I just really loved being here,” he says. “I already enjoy working out, but when you can do it in an environment like this, with the high ceilings and all the sunlight, it makes it even better.”
Every Weekend I post – What’s cooking ! This weekend it’s foods (and activities) to keep me on track and focused while enjoying family time and having fun!
So this weekend what’s cooking is easy foods that keep me balanced and cool. Why? the in laws are in town. No , really I enjoy my time with my in-laws, but this also means nieces and nephews and cousins.. lots of family. This means lots of events with lots of different foods, that may not be my first and healthiest choices.
So.. to keep my healthy eating in check and feeling energized and good.. I am making these two recipes. These will be my back ups to eat before not so healthy functions ( and not give into the less healthy temptations around me.. or just have less of those tempting treats)
Also – it’s important to reset yourself, when you’re zapped and feeling overwhelmed. I make sure and take some time for myself, before hanging out with family, this way I get to clear my head .. and have more energy and better mood for loved ones. This morning it was a jog around greenlake and Kettlebell class at kettlebility!
Tomorrow am – it’s Spin and Yoga at Live Love Flow (12th and cherry- Cap Hill) folllowed by delicious green smoothie at Heleo! What a way to start the day! (seriously) wish I could do that every day.

“If I can’t see anymore, do I have to cancel my membership?” This was the first question Clarence Haverstock asked me in his first visit to Magnuson Athletic Club. It was an atypical question, but soon I would learn that Clarence is not your typical gym member.
When his doctor diagnosed him as borderline diabetic at age 82, Clarence became determined to make healthy changes to his lifestyle. He improved his eating habits, started taking daily walks with his wife, and joined a gym. By his 85th birthday Clarence had lost 50 pounds and his health improved dramatically.
When macular degeneration in both eyes made it difficult to navigate his old gym, Clarence went in search of a new facility and was attracted to the wide open spaces MAC offered. “The open space between the machines makes it easier for me to use them,” he explains. “I feel comfortable getting on and off my bike and finding my way between the weight machines.”
Since joining MAC, Clarence has become a regular fixture in mid-week Fit4All classes and enjoys the camaraderie he shares with his classmates. “Even if we don’t know each other’s names, we enjoy talking to each other,” he says. He also likes the resistance band and cardio exercises instructor Sue Ihlanfeldt designs for them. “She keeps you moving, and that really keeps me moving,” he says with a smile. Now a couple months shy of his 89th birthday, Clarence is determined to keep being active. “The staff and other members keep me coming back, and I’ll keep coming as long as I can keep finding my way down here.”
I find cooking to be therapeutic. It doesn’t demand from you, you can be loud and messy and in the end you get a great product that makes you feel great. I have a much better week if I have healthy options on hand, and don’t have to think about what I’ll eat after a busy day- or for lunch. To get set up for the upcoming week, I have a process, on Thursday evenings I watch some brainless sitcoms, while I thumb through our many recipe books and magazines – and plan out a few dishes for the following week. Then after work on Fridays I gather my goods, then when inspiration hits me over the weekend, it’s all there. Check weekly for what’s on my menu
So what’s cooking this weekend? (more…)

FYI: Anger, Stress and Anxious feelings increase your metabolism and cause hunger. Sadness and Fear decrease metabolism and lowers hunger.
Get leaner and stronger, specifically see more definition and decrease your workout time. Sound good?
Then start training with Kettlebells! They give you a high metabolic, calorie blasting and muscle pumping workout. Did you know that the more muscle you have – the more calories you burn.. all day long?
What I love about kettlebells is they’re Fun, efficient and they tone.. they do not bulk. Get the biggest results by learning correct form and ways to add to your workouts.

Happier, Healthier You
Our Drop 10 cardio plan will turn you into a calorie-torching machine. Find your weekly fat-melting schedule below. You can do the routines with any form of cardio you enjoy. Some days, you’ll HIIT it—as in, high intensity interval training; other days, you’ll dial it down. Begin each session with a five-minute warm-up, and end with a cooldown. Fat, you’re on burn notice.
Why it works HIIT, which alternates all-out cardio bursts with active recovery, releases high levels of hormones that target pudge, especially body fat. Proof: Women who did 20 minutes of HIIT three times per week (8-second sprints, followed by 12 seconds of recovery) lost 5.5 pounds over 15 weeks; those who sweated for twice as long at a steady pace put on 1 pound, a study in the International Journal of Obesity finds. What’s more, the HIITers lost 9.5 percent of their tummy fat, whereas the cruisers gained 10.5 percent. Take that, jelly roll!
What to do Below are five weeks’ worth of effective workouts, all mapped out for you by your Drop 10 trainers, Katrina Hodgson and Karena Dawn, the California girls dubbed “the new faces of fitness” by Jane Fonda. You choose which days to HIIT it hard; for every two intense workouts, you’re rewarded with a take-it-easy day—not to mention a hotter-by-the-day bod. (more…)
