Thursday 6th April 2017....tennis was awesome!!

This was one of the best two hours of tennis this morning a really great work out with three wonderful fun and great guys..thanks!!!

Home and then off to my last session with Joe on this fantastic machine...

I have no idea why this copy came out this way makes for a long read, pun intended!!!!

what you need to know about....


: Power-plate


What's it all about?
Power-Plate is a machine that gives the body's muscles a high-speed workout by using vibrations to stimulate them to contract and relax. They generally contract once or twice a second, but by standing on the Power-Plate, its vibrations cause an automatic reflex muscle contraction of 30-50 a second.
Power-Plate is a great time-saver due to the effectiveness of training and the fact that many muscle groups are activated at the same time. It's claimed that 10 minutes on the Power-Plate will have the same results as 60 minutes of conventional strenuous training.
What the expert says...
Mark Andrews is a remedial therapist and Power-Plate specialist trainer.
Better results in less time 
Power-Plate is like the microwave of fitness - you can do as little as 10 minutes and still achieve a great workout.
Start gradually 
The best way to train is by increasing the frequency gradually. Beginners are advised to start with nine minutes of the resistance programme, followed by nine minutes of the stretch, massage and relaxation programme, both on the lower frequency and amplitude settings.
Stand correctly 
In order to develop strength, power, muscle tone and definition, it is essential to adopt a position that puts tension on the muscles. For example, if you're doing the squat position, have your knees bent and lean from the hips, as if you are about to sit on a chair.
Keep your workout short 
Although everyone is different, it's usually enough to start with no more than 30...#8209;60 seconds on each exercise. This will reduce the duration of the workout, which is a real bonus for people who are time-short but crave results.
Combine your exercises 
Try to choose a combination of compound exercises (such as squats and push-ups, which use more than one muscle group) and isolation exercises (biceps curls and front raises). You'll get a better training response, as well as increasing potential calorie burn.
Keep your knees bent 
Vibration training stimulates the contraction of the muscle spindles, so it's important to keep your knees slightly bent to avoid jarring through the joints.
Drink enough water
Your muscles will be contracting 30-50 times more quickly, thereby generating a lot of internal heat, so even if you don't feel thirsty, always drink water while you're working out.




Joe is a quiet gentle soul and I have been working with him since November and he has changed my life and my body..thanks JOE!!!

This afternoon was full of chores in town and some packing and sorting out my stuff.

Tonight I am going to the local theater called Play readers where they actually read the script...this was the play I really like his work and this should be the best!!!!


Jonas & Barry in the Home: funny, poignant

Norm
Norm Foster’s new play, Jonas & Barry in the Home, which had its world premiere at Theatre Orangeville on Oct. 5, is reliably very funny and rather poignant. Basically, as this is a play to be seen not exposed in advance, the story involves two seniors who have moved into a luxurious “assisted living” home, Gateway Gardens.
Barry Butterfield, a retired dentist, still a good three years on the sunny side of 70, and newly arriving bon vivant retired actor Jonas Ainsworth, meet on the veranda and fall easily into conversation and friendship. Giving balance to the whole is Barry’s daughter Rosie, who is employed at Gateway Gardens as social convenor. It is she who persuaded her father to move into the home after his heart attack, primarily to keep an eye on him and, otherwise, to mend their somewhat broken relationship.
The humour and the heartstrings are all tied up in the dialogue, at which Norm Foster is a master. He, as Jonas, and Theatre Orangeville Artistic Director David Nairn, playing Barry, dash the lines back and forth with that stunning cleverness and offbeat humour, so intrinsic to Norm Foster’s creative work. There are moments when the conversation between the two men is so funny and outrageous that, on opening night, they had to wait for the audience to collectively catch its breath from laughing so hard, clapping their hands and twittering (as opposed to tweeting), before the two of them could continue.
Old pros that they are, the time it took for the audience to settle was longer than you might think but they passed the moments adjusting as one to the other, trying to deal with the remark that had caused the hilarity in the first place. It was really remarkable, really fun.

Barry’s daughter Rosie, with the delightful Perrie Olthuis in the role, brings to light the stories of each of them, the heartbreaks and the eternal questions of failing, repentance and – what next? However, Norm Foster never lectures – his dialogue is as close to as it would be to people actually in his given circumstances, not on a stage. He defies the pretense of the stage and plunks simple reality into the exchanges between his characters. So, the situations he recreates belong to anyone; everyone identifies and laughs and cries right along with the actors telling the tales.
A single setting, the beautiful set having been designed by Beckie Morris, Theatre Orangeville’s Production Manager, tells the whole picture of Gateway Gardens, in which all the comedy and drama take place.
Jonas and Barry in the Home is all that we have come to appreciate from Mr. Foster over the past years of regularly enjoying his plays here.
