Hello RAC Family,

Are you taking advantage of the opportunities before you? Each and every day presents us with opportunity. It is all around us... always. However, opportunity isn't always immediately visible. Sometimes it might even be disguised in the form of defeat or misfortune. Often times opportunity is missed because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work...

Everyone looks at life through a particular lens or perspective. Our life experiences play a huge role in how we shape such perspectives, beliefs, and biases. The development of these biases oftentimes operates at the unconscious level. They even actually impact the way we make decisions. Thus, it is important that we reflect on our biases to ensure that they don't prevent us from seeing the present opportunities.

The fear of failure, for example, is an all-too-common viewpoint that keeps many of us in the dark. This fear can consume us, paralyze us and keep us stagnant.  Failure is merely an opportunity to learn. There's no need to fear it. Rather, we can embrace it.

Tie this perspective into your health and wellness journey. What impediments prevent you from seeing clearly? Do you realize that every barrier can be penetrated and that opportunity is waiting to be illuminated?

Take a chance this year. We have outfitted our facility with the best services in the industry. Need group fitness? Try out one of our exciting class formats from our robust GrX schedule. Need a personal touch to fitness? Take advantage of our Personal Training promos. Need a little flexibility in your life. Our yoga and Pilates programs are well suited for that. Heck, try ALL of it. We're starting our biggest club challenge, our 60/60 Summer Fitness Challenge, on April 2nd! It's 60 classes in 60 days. Fit. Firm. Fantastic.

We see this challenge as an opportunity... do you? Question your lens. We know it will open you to new perspectives!

See you out on the floor! - BG

We offer an eight week program that is sure to exceed your child's expectations, jam packed with fundamental development and positive excelling in any given area of their game. While players proceed to improve, they will also have a memorable experience here at Rollingwood.

Coaches Corner...
The first time I walked on the pool deck at RAC was in March of 2015. I had just been hired as the new head swim coach, and there was an air of uncertainty around the swim program, as there had been a coaching transition. The March Clinic was in progress, and consisted of about 30 swimmers in total.

That Summer, in my first season as the head coach, the Rollingwood Rockets swim team consisted of about 100 swimmers, and we struggled to be competitive in our conference in our team's first year in the Northern California Swim League.

Fast forward to the summer of 2017; the Rockets had 140+ swimmers and won a conference championship in the same conference we had struggled in just two years before.

And now as I write this, we are finishing up our annual March Clinic. We have 90 swimmers in our March Clinic, the most ever at RAC. Five days per week, regardless of the cold or stormy weather that has been prevalent throughout the month, there is laughter, excitement, full pools, and high expectations that only come with the honest pursuit of excellence.  

I'm eternally grateful to have gotten the opportunity to rebuild this first rate program hand in hand with a staff of outstanding assistant coaches and a seemingly endless amount of amazing swim families and athletes. We have all worked hard over the past three years to get this program back to where it currently is, but for me, it's been a labor of love, and I'd like to think we are just getting started!

Did you know? - by Lynn Alberts
Many of today's youth are not getting enough physical activity?
Epidemiological reports show that kids today get far less physical activity than the previous generation. Current activity guidelines recommend 60 minutes of moderately vigorous physical activity daily. Getting less leads to a progression of risk factors that will manifest as they become adults. Get your kids involved in after school programs other than computer or cell phone activities. Enroll your kids in a program at RAC while you workout. Spend time walking or hiking with them on the weekends. Movement is necessary for brain function, weight control, over-eating and sleep.
