Your Weekly East Bay Clubs Update: March 20, 2023

Dear Member,

Welcome to your second edition of The Quad, your Club newsletter that covers all things happening at the Bay Club, plus a little extra. Loving it? Not loving it? Hit reply and let us know!


We love to shine a light on one of our very own. Congratulations to Charlie Johnson for being awarded the 2023 USOPC Developmental Coach of the Year by US Squash.

Charlie has been with the The Bay Club Company since 2013 and has been an instrumental part of our squash culture and community. Prior to Bay Club, Charlie was (and still is) a World Tour Player, and at one point ranked #132 in the world and #1 in California.

President and CEO of US Squash, Kevin Klipstein, shares that Charlie has “been pivotal to the growth of squash on the West Coast to the point that California now accounts for the largest number of players participating in the US Junior Championships.”

Thank you, Charlie, for creating such a welcoming and successful squash program here. Please join us in saying a huge congratulations to him!

Perks are a Perkin’

Have you shopped for your Quays yet? Don’t miss the chance to save 25% on our favorite Australian sunnies brand. We swear by their blue light glasses. Protect your baby blues (or browns!). Incredible style + amazing quality. Most retail for around $55. Happy Shopping!

Bullies for the Win!

After a 31-year winning streak, Labrador’s must step aside as we usher in a new favorite dog breed in the U.S.–the French Bulldog! Cute as it could be, playful, and loyal (one may or may not be sitting at my feet as I write). We at the Bay Club love all our furry friends, but we have a soft spot for Bullies. Congrats to the Frenchie!

Ponder This

“A person who feels appreciated will always do more than what is expected”.

If you outwardly appreciate those around you, keep it up. Not a strong suit of yours? Extend some appreciation today and see how good it feels.

Things We’re Loving

All things Hu! Have you tried a chocolate bar from Hu? Decadent and crave-worthy, yet simple. No weird ingredients (goodbye palm oil and soy lecithin); hello organic fair-trade cacao + organic fair-trade cocoa butter!

We will always treat ourselves and our kiddos, but let’s do it the right way. So many flavors to choose from–we love Salty and the Cashew Butter with Orange Vanilla. You can find Hu at your local grocery stores. I tend to buy in bulk from Thrive Markets–big savings!

Reminder: we are not affiliated with Hu or Thrive Markets. We just love to share good info to keep our modern families healthy and in the know.

A Little T.L.C.

There is so much information out there regarding our health and wellness. We will always try to take one topic and make it a bit more understandable. Today’s feature is fasting! Fasting is a great way to optimize your health. Our bodies can literally heal themselves if we activate them properly. One of the best ways to activate our healing systems is to change WHEN we eat.

Ok, so let’s talk fasting. A lot of terms are thrown around in this arena, so let’s break down a few of them: Time Restricted Eating, Intermittent Fasting, and the Fasting Mimicking Diet.

Time Restricted Eating means you eat within an 8, 10, 12-hour window each day. You do not eat or drink anything (except water, decaf tea, or maybe a black coffee) outside of that window.

True Intermittent Fasting is doing a 24-36 hour fast once a week, or a 3-day fast monthly.

And then there is the Fasting Mimicking Diet, which restricts calories for a certain period of time. An example would be eating 800 calories a day for 5 days. My personal favorite fasting nutrition program is Prolon.

Net-net, there are a lot of benefits to fasting, but you need to try things and decide what works for you. If you are interested in learning more from a trusted source, I highly recommend listening to this episode with Mark Hyman, my favorite Functional Medicine Doctor.
