HP1240: Fueling for Optimal Health and Performance Seminar

 

HP1240 Seminar FlierHello and thank you to all who attended our first HP1240 seminar, “Fueling for Optimal Health and Performance.” I am very pleased with the turn-out and I have heard nothing but rave reviews about our guest dietician Laura Moretti. Laura brought a young and energetic approach to nutrition and understanding how to better fuel our bodies before, during and after skating and exercise.

Laura comes to us from Boston Children’s Hospital Sports Medicine Division. Her expertise working with figure skaters and ballet dancers really helped our skaters and parents understand the importance of proper nutrition and gave them the tools as well as tips and tricks to eating better and feeling better both on and off the ice. Proper nutrition is good not only for our overall health, but for increasing energy on the ice, speeding up recovery time, building stronger muscles and bones and even injury prevention. Staying ahead of injuries is one of the biggest challenges for young athletes and good nutrition is a one of many great ways to do so.

One notable part of the seminar that really resonated with the skaters was equating proper nutrition timing to putting gas in a car. Without putting gas in first, the car will not work or move. Once you put gas in the car, you have to continue putting more in to keep the car going. Another important detail was balancing carbohydrate, protein and fat intake in our diet. An athlete’s plate has a proper mix of each and the proportions change during different times in the season or during competitions.

Lora MorettiWe are very happy to say that Laura has joined the club as an HP1240 Service Provider and she is available for private one-on-one consultations. She can be reached at:

Coaching Announcement

February 10, 2017

Evgenia Shishkova and Vadim NaumovI am pleased to announce that Evgenia Shishkova and Vadim Naumov have accepted the Club’s invitation to join our staff of professional coaches. They will be relocating to the Club from Simsbury, CT in early March, and working with students at every level in both singles, pairs and moves in the field.

By way of background, Genia and Vadim competed as a pairs team representing Russia. They are the 1994 World Pair Champions, and the 1996 Grand Prix Series Final Champions. They are also two-time World medalists, five-time European medalists and two-time Olympians, as well as the 1998 World Professional Champions. Originally from St. Petersburg, Russia, they became partners in marriage in 1995, and emigrated to the United States in 1998. They have coached as a team in Simsbury, CT since moving to the United States, and among their current students is their son, Maxim Naumov, winner of the Novice Men’s title at the recent 2017 U.S. Championships in Kansas City. Past students include 2005 U.S. Pair Champions Katie Orscher and (current Club coach) Garrett Lucash.

I hope you will join me in welcoming Genia and Vadim to the Club’s coaching staff once they are here in March! Until then, they may be reached at vadimnaumov@hotmail.com.

Sincerely,

Doug Zeghibe
Executive Director
