eNews from The Hills April 30


Dear Members:

It’s hard to believe it’s May already! Accordingly, we’ve been busy planning for the summer season ahead.

One sign of summer is the re-opening of the café on weekends starting May 3, from 12noon to 7pm. Effective June 1, the café will operate on a regular summer schedule, 11am to 8pm.

I am excited to report that we recently hired a new chef, Robert Muscat. I hope you will welcome him to The Hills. Rob brings his experience as an executive chef with SYSCO Foods, and has helped out at numerous special events at the club in the past. He promises some light and healthy additions to our traditional club menu. Please stop and enjoy one of the new menu selections including Panini-style sandwiches, salmon and grilled-veggie salads, and healthier choices for kids. Plus some yummy new dessert choices! We need your support to make the café operation a sustainable success.

Also, we'll be installing new day lockers near the pool deck in mid-June. This will alleviate crowding inside the locker rooms and provide a convenient space to secure your personal belongings while you swim or work out.

A big part of our summer preparations is focused on safety and courtesy. You'll notice new signs around the club that serve as friendly reminders for members and their guests. Please observe these policies and let us know if you have ever have concerns about the club's rules and regulations.

Another issue I want to clarify is that we cannot accommodate dogs at The Hills. Previously, you may have leashed your dog in front of the club, but we cannot allow this any longer. This becomes a problem when more than one dog is present and it obstructs access to the front doors and bike racks.

Finally, save the date for our annual summer kick-off event on Memorial Day – Monday, May 26. Count on some live music outdoors and a special BBQ lunch menu. We're still working on the menu and pricing, so I'll update you with more details soon.

We are looking forward to a wonderful summer season. Thanks for your cooperation and feedback.

To your health,

Ernesto Chamorro
General Manager

Pilates Puts Spring in Your Step

Pilates training on the reformer and other equipment is amazingly safe and effective due to its spring resistance. Instead of lifting a bulky weight, you work against a smooth spring load that both challenges and supports the body in all planes. We offer free Pilates reformer trials for new students. The next introductory class is Saturday May 3, 9-10am. Email [email protected]
to sign up.

imgTry Thai Massage

Now The Hills offers Thai massage. It's passive stretching and bodywork that produces amazing results. It's interactive exercise and relieves stress, tension, tight muscles and promotes energy and vitality. Great for injury prevention, increased flexibility and overall wellness. Schedule online at The Hills Pilates Scheduler or contact [email protected].
> $85 for a 75-minute session

Pilates Teacher Training

imgAt The Hills, you can become a certified STOTT Pilates instructor, the most reputable school of Pilates worldwide. Our mat-training program starts on June 7 and gives you the tools to teach group classes or one-on-one, with and without props. For more information, please contact [email protected].

Kinderdance Summer Camp

imgDesigned for 3-to-5 year olds, with fun themes like Dancing at the Beach, Dancing with the Animals A-Z, and Dancing on a Jungle Safari! An engaging, musical experience that blends physical and creative development with preschool-education concepts. We incorporate colorful props, music and dance moves. Children learn the basics of tumbling, floor gymnastics, ballet and tap, while free-movement is fostered in imaginative realms like the sea and jungle. Kinderdance teaches to the “whole child,” building self-esteem through positive reinforcement, encouraging new levels of physical development, and stimulating the brain with colors, shapes, letters and numbers.
