Cityview Racquet Club Announces Schedule for Summer Weekly Social Series

Long Island City, NY (PRWEB) April 21, 2015

CityView Racquet Club is gearing up for its Summer Weekly Social Series to bring new and exciting activities to the club’s rooftop deck starting Memorial Day weekend. Member Services Director Ali Maher is coordinating the events, alongside the club’s Events Director, Ashley Howard, which will be similar to the Winter Weekly Social Series she began.

The Winter Weekly Social Series ran Tuesday through Friday every week starting in February 2015. Tuesday and Thursdays featured live music while on Wednesdays the club hosted trivia night; Friday is Members’ Living Room night, which is where members can host personal gatherings with friends and family in the lounge, putting their own footprint on the theme and menu of the evening.

Maher started the series because she felt that the sky lounge wasn’t being used to its full potential. Although the lounge provides an excellent space for all types of events, most members were visiting the racquet and tennis club for other purposes.

“I felt the lounge was underutilized,” Maher says. “Many people have a certain mentality of coming into the club just to use the workout facilities or spa, so we’re trying to emphasize other unique aspects at CityView Racquet Club, such as the cozy environment of the lounge.”

For the Summer Weekly Social Series, things will switch up as the weather gets warmer.

Maher says that the Living Room Series will continue on Fridays this summer, so guests can continue using the lounge for private parties. The Living Room Series is vital, she says, so members can invite non-members to the club to check out the space and maybe consider applying for membership.

The schedule for the rest of the week will change, however, to give club members some new activities to look forward to. Tuesday nights will offer sunset yoga, and Wednesdays will be barbecue themed gatherings.

But Maher is most excited about the improv comedy nights featuring players from Magnet Theater and The Ex Comedy.

In fact, Maher’s own background is in comedy and acting. A native of Westchester, NY, Maher spent her youth at country clubs; and after attending SUNY Fredonia for PR/Legal Studies, she headed to Manhattan to pursue a career in the arts.

Maher studied and performed at The Upright Citizens Brigade, People’s Improv Theater and Magnet Theater, and she says she had the opportunity to work with some of the best in the business. However, she switched careers and headed into the private event business, where she soon realized that CityView Racquet Club was the perfect fit for her.

However, all of the events planned for the summer are part of Maher’s goal: to create the social environment she believes members of CityView Racquet Club will enjoy. Where members might meet others at bars or exercise classes, they can now make connections and bring friends and family to the events at their favorite tennis club.

“It’s been a pleasure being able to merge the fun, exciting, spontaneous personality from the comedy world to an elite private racquet club,” Maher says. “This place is very special to all the members and evokes a strong sense of community that we want to continue to stress.”

The Summer Weekly Social Series is expected to be a hit, according to Maher, as the winter events have all produced nothing but positive feedback from members. She credits the club’s social atmosphere with setting the company apart from its competitors.

“In improv you are trained to receive information, accept it, and then add onto it, propelling the scene forward constantly. It’s a formula that helps produce results. I believe what makes this club different is we also live by this formula. We don’t stop offering a variety of options to give our members,” Maher says. “‘Yes’ is never enough when it comes to questioning whether or not we’ve done enough for them; it should always be a ‘Yes, and…,’ what else can we do to enhance the experience? How do we stay one step ahead of the member and anticipate their needs before they are even vocalized. It is this quality that makes CityView Racquet Club one of a kind.”

The Aspen Club on Actively Aging: Telling a New Story on Aging

Aspen, Colorado (PRWEB) February 26, 2015

As the great passage beyond midlife gathers drive and scale, millions are looking for deeper meaning, more substantial roles and connections that span the generations – asking the question – how do I live a life that still matters? As The Aspen Club prepares for its 10th round of Younger Next Year Total Immersion Retreat, answers to these types of questions are revealed. This program boasts unbelievable results and jump-starts a healthier life. A new round of studies indicates that exercise combined with a balanced, as opposed to trendy, diet can actually work to reverse the aging process, allowing people to remain healthy and active well into their 70s and 80s.

Dr. Henry Lodge, one of the leading proponents of this theory, has written extensively on how the body is in a constant state of decay and repair. As the body ages the chemical responsible for decay works faster than the chemical responsible for regeneration. Exercise reverses that equation and allows the body to repair itself at a faster rate, which Dr. Lodge says can help slow down and even reverse the aging process.

There is mounting evidence that exercise can reduce the risk of certain diseases and conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, and arthritis. In fact, numerous studies have shown that diet and exercise can also help ward off cognitive problems and memory loss, while improving sleep and boosting mood and self-confidence.

Unfortunately, Americans have been getting more and more sedentary over the years while turning to quick fixes like juice diets to make up for it. To fight this tendency, Chris Crowley, who, along with Dr. Lodge is the author of the best-selling book Younger Next Year, suggests making exercise a part of a daily routine, something that is up there with brushing teeth and combing hair.

If will power alone is not enough to get you there, Crowley and The Aspen Club team of experts are holding a Younger Next Year Total Immersion Week in May and September of this year. The program is aimed at busy professionals who do not have the time to set up a program on their own. It is the sort of quick fix that actually has long-lasting benefits as the program trains participants on how to incorporate the concepts of Younger Next Year into their everyday lives.

“They give you everything you need to be successful at home,” notes Jill Belconis, a Chicago area CEO, who attended last year. “Aspen is such a beautiful setting too,” she notes, “which really fit in with the theme that this is not just about extending your life but enjoying it too. The healthier you are, the more you can enjoy the rest of your life.”

The Aspen Club is currently accepting reservations for the 2015 Younger Next Year Immersion Retreats, May 10 – 14 and September 27 – October 1.

Hermitage Club Announces Highlights of Economic Stimulus that Funneled Millions into the Wilmington & West Dover VT Economic Infrastructure Devastated by Hurricane Irene

Wilmington, VT (PRWEB) December 17, 2014

The Hermitage Club disclosed today the scope of the economic stimulus that it has provided to Wilmington and Dover, the southern Vermont towns that were hit hard by Hurricane Irene in August 2011.“The idea was to purchase and then completely rebuild and expand the long closed Haystack Mountain ski area, and transform it into an exclusive, state-of-the-art, environmentally-friendly, four-season private club” commented Dale Ribaudo, senior vice president of the Hermitage Club. Now three years after the initial purchase and beginning its fourth season of operations, total spending from October 2011 through November 2014 has exceeded $ 94 million and has helped to resurrect the local economy.

Prior to the hurricane, the towns of Wilmington and Dover were economically depressed – Wilmington saw a 16% population decrease in population from 2000- 2010, primarily due to lack of jobs, and Dover’s experiences were similar. According to the ‘Summary of the Strategic Economic Development Plan for Dover and Wilmington, Vermont’ developed by the Tri Town Economic Development Committee in December 2009 and assisted by Mullin Associates Inc,. “the towns are in an economic climate of gradual decline that will only continue if they do nothing. They are able to survive recessions and times of severe distress but are unable to regain that which they have lost and are not growing in new areas. The decline is slow and subtle, but constant. They have no choice but to change if they wish to remain vibrant and maintain their quality of life.” Then Hurricane Irene hit – 48 out of 57 buildings were flooded in the Wilmington’s historic business district.

Enter the Hermitage Club – five years after the release of the ‘Strategic Economic Development Plan for Dover and Wilmington’ the Hermitage Club has helped the Deerfield Valley meet many of the recommendations of this extensive study. Since 2011, The Hermitage Club has had the following impact on the local economies:

    Spent approximately $ 94 million over the last three years making this the largest real estate development project in Vermont. Of this amount, $ 42 million was for operating costs and $ 52 million was for capital investment.
    Hired over 200 local contractors in “Green” construction projects
    Created employment for 268 people at the Club
    Generated local property taxes to the towns of Wilmington and Dover on club owned property and real estate sold to club members that will approach $ 900,000 per year by June 2015
    Paid over $ 400,000 to the state of Vermont for transfer and land gains taxes for the period 2011-2014
    Paid $ 1.1 million in sales, meals & room taxes to the state of Vermont for the period 2011-2014
    Paid $ 191,000 in sales, meals & room taxes to Wilmington & Dover for the period 2011-2014
    Paid permitting expenses of over $ 700,000
    Invested over $ 2 million in marketing and communications over the past two years, branding the club and promoting the Deerfield Valley throughout the Northeast
    Built a luxurious 80,000 square foot ‘Green’ clubhouse / base lodge that is the largest post and beam structure east of the Mississippi River
    Purchased, expanded and increased the safety of the Deerfield Valley Airport
    Contributed to and supported the Deerfield Valley Trail expansion – The recreational trail between Wilmington and Dover for hikers and bicycles
    Attracted new investors to the area that have recognized the opportunity of a revitalized community and subsequently purchased several area businesses that are now undergoing renovations.

In the spring of 2014, the Deerfield Valley Chamber of Commerce released the Deerfield Valley Economic and Demographic Prospectus – This report was designed to “help prospective entrepreneurs and investors assess the current economic trends in the region.” This report noted “there is a new sense of optimism pulsing throughout the community,” and referenced the extensive contribution of the Hermitage Club. The summary stated “Unlike historic real estate expansions, these investments intended to build infrastructure for long term, sustained growth in the region.”

About The Hermitage Club

The Hermitage Club at Haystack Mountain is a 1,400-acre enclave in the Deerfield Valley of Southern Vermont. The Club, located in the towns of West Dover and Wilmington, VT, provides members with four seasons of private mountain activities, luxury accommodations and a worry free, safe environment for families of all generations. The exclusive private club community celebrates the outdoors and family fun, with activities ranging from alpine skiing and boarding to cross country skiing and snowshoeing. The Club has also recently added a variety of summer water and mountain adventure activities including hiking, swimming and kayaking in addition to golfing at its 18-hole championship golf course. The Club opened a new 80,000 square foot Clubhouse this past weekend. The facility includes multiple dining options, a full fitness area, spa, children’s center, bowling alley, 45-seat movie theatre, GoPro editing suites and a retail store. The new clubhouse, combined with the residential construction taking place at The Club, qualifies as the largest real estate construction project in southern Vermont and has attracted the interest of those interested in Vermont ski resort real estate. The Hermitage Club is the fastest growing company in Vermont and was recently named to Inc. Magazine’s Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing private companies in the United States.

San Diego, Calif. (PRWEB) October 31, 2014

“We’re excited that this partnership has become a reality,” stated Rich Kenah, Executive Director at Atlanta Track Club. “A fun and effective cross-training tool like the ElliptiGO will be of great value to our runners, so we’re very pleased to offer this as a benefit to our members. Our hope is that by giving them easy access to a low-impact, running-like workout, our runners will integrate more cross-training into their training programs. More cross-training can help our members stay injury-free, improve their performance, and maximize their potential.”

With this partnership, the Atlanta Track Club joins a growing list of clubs and teams that use the ElliptiGO with their athletes, including the Oregon Track Club Elite, the Brooks Beasts, Stanford University, and UC Berkeley.
