Have you heard about BAC’s own nutrition program? Here is what people are saying about Fuel:
“I’d like to let you know how grateful I am for having been in your excellent program. There are valuable lessons that will be useful to me for a lifetime and I was to thank you for having been a great teacher, motivator, cheerleader and resource person for the group. Your insights have helped me to get to the point of choosing better nutrition and generally living better and feeling good every day. Im sure everyone in our group enjoyed a measure of success getting to our stated goals. I hope you will continue the program because there is so much noise and TMI out there that we need to get the fuel program to sort all of it out in a way that makes sense. Thank you SO much and we’re really blessed to have you in our gym and in our community.” -BAC Member Lilia The next Fuel is coming soon! Please contact Tina Schumacher at (360) 393 – 7777 or mtschumacher@nullcomcast.net to answer any questions. Tina is also available to do individual consultations and is ready to help you get to your long term health and performance goals.

However, because different adults have different needs and goals, please take these levels as guidelines. Adult lessons are offered in the evenings on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Check out our new levels below!

Adult Beginner
Pre-Requisites: This level has no requirements, and is ideal for those who are new to the water.
Skills: Te primary goal for this level is survival and safety swimming. We will help you learn skills including floating, water mobility, effective kicking, and more.

Adult Intermediate
Pre-Requisites: How to float without assistance and recreational swimming skills. This level is for folks who know how to swim for survival, but would like to learn formal strokes.
Skills: In this level we will be learning strokes, including freestyle, backstroke, elementary backstroke, and sidestroke, as well as an introduction to lap swimming etiquette.

Adult Advanced
Pre-Requisites: Freestyle (Crawl Stroke), with or without breathing. This level is for those who have already had some swim training and would like to refine their technique for lap swimming.

Happy New Year! Set your intention and then stoke the fire through this yoga sequence intended to keep you on track:)

Begin the New year with a revitalized perspective! The New Year represents an opportunity to make room for new experiences and points of view. Yoga helps us shed the old ways of seeing and doing things and invites in a renewed sense of strength and vitality to take on the new challenges that are ahead, whether physical, mental or emotional. In this mini workshop, we will nourish our Resolutions with a yoga sequence for Inner Strength.

New Year, New Start! Our bodies are designed to engage in detoxification every single day, however from time to time we all need a gentle nudge in the right direction. Let’s roll out our trusted mats and allow the yoga poses to stimulate our circulatory, digestive, and lymphatic systems, helping us rid our mind and bodies of accumulated waste and toxins! The New Year is the perfect time to become our healthiest, most authentic self.

When: Saturday, January 21st
Time: 10 – 11:30 a.m.
