In Case You Were Wondering…

Yes, we continue to welcome new

members—and for many prospects,

we have made it easier to join the Club

today than it has been in years. If you

have friends or business associates

who you would like to see become

members, this would be a good

time to tell them about changes in

membership programs that the Board

of Governors approved last September.

The biggest is a reduction in entrance

fees. Prospective members and Club

members who have recruited prospects

have made it clear that high entrance

fees are the biggest impediment to a

decision to apply for membership—

bigger than dues, bigger than service

prices, and bigger than fear of not

making full use of a membership.

As of last October 1, the entrance fee

for new Resident Members—members

age 40 and higher and living in our

eight-county metropolitan area—

were reduced to $3,500 after having

been $8,000 for at least 10 years. They

are likely to rise in the future, but not

for at least a year; the reduction is

“permanent”—or at least as permanent

as pricing ever becomes.

I n M e M o r y:

Jay Novak

Club President

The entrance fee for new Young

Members age 30 to 39 were set at

$1,500 after having ranged up to

$2,000 in recent years. For new Young

Members age 20 to 29, the entrance fee

was reduced from $1,000 to $500. We

are always eager to be joined by young

members, and I’m pleased to note than

46 of the members who joined the Club

from January through November of

2011 were younger than 40.

We are also pleased to have members

who resigned from the Club return to

membership. The Board of Governors

has made it easier for them to do so,

at least through form the next three

months, by suspending the longstanding

$1,000 reinstatement fee

through March 31. If you know former

members who you would like to see

back, let them know about the Club’s

new programming, fitness studios,

child-care facility, and lively new Grill

and Pub menus.

Current members, of course, are not

only welcome to enlist new members,

they are asked and occasionally

implored to do so. Membership

Director Margaret Leto is eager to help

(reach her at Margaretl@mplsclub.org). She will

provide packets of information, invite

prospective member to join us at two

social occasions, arrange tours of the

Clubhouse—which has been made

more impressive by the renovation of

the Pub and expansion of the Fitness

Center—and begin the processing of

all applications.

For prospective members who are

undecided about joining the Club, she

also can initiate a 30-day “Discovery

Package” program that allows potential

members to experience the Club as

guests for dinner and an overnight

stay for two on a Friday night. Then,

on Saturday morning, the guests are

invited to take part in a group class

in the fitness center and experience a

30-minute massage.

New members are essential to the

vitality of the Club—and especially

to additional improvements to

the Clubhouse, including a longcontemplated

renovation of the Gill.

We would like to grow by 50 members

in 2012. Can you identify one of them?

Suzy Kaderlik passed away suddenly on Thursday, November 24, 2011. Suzy was the

Executive Assistant at the Minneapolis Club for nearly 11 years where she touched the lives

of many members and staff.

Through her years of service at the Club, many members developed a lasting relationship with

Suzy. Her role at the Club was two-fold. Staff considered her position adminstative and behind

the scenes, where members saw her as the face of many of the committees and special events.

The loss of Suzy can be felt throughout the Club. This is a hard time for members and staff

alike, and it is important to support Suzy’s family through their time of grief.

Suzy was a loving wife, mother, daughter and sister. The loves of her life were her husband

Chad, and son Brecken.

In lieu of flowers and gifts, the Kaderlik family has requested that donations be made to the

Breken Kaderlik Education Fund. Donations can be mailed directly to the Minneapolis Club

and may be accompanied by the inserted memorial card.

If you have any questions, please contact Frank DiLapo: fdilapo@mplsclub.org or 612.332.2292

Another holiday season is behind us and a new year with

new challenges lies ahead. I would like to reach out to

all of those who are looking to set weight loss New Years

Resolutions and offer some helpful hints as you start

to watch those pounds come off. A question that I get

asked a lot is: “Why should I track calories or log what

I am eating?” Research shows that only nine percent of

Americans accurately track daily calories and statistics show

that people who track calories lose twice as much weight

as others. If you do not track calories, you are likely eating

more than you think. Some of the main culprits are:

Picking and Nibbling

A few bites of your kid’s mac and cheese, a piece of

chocolate out of the office candy bowl, a few pretzels, etc.

These items can add up to more than 1,000 calories per day.

Liquid Calories

The calories in juice, soda, lemonade, sweetened iced

tea, flavored coffee, alcohol, and other drinks rack up the

calories quickly. Try low-calorie options like flavored water

and avoid adding sugar to coffee or tea.

Skipping Meals

Your body needs fuel on a regular basis. Those who skip a

meal usually overeat at the next one. When you go without

Yoga + Chocolate + Wine

Guided by Melissa Schoeller

January, 31st

5:30 pm

The Yoga+Chocolate+Wine experience highlights the sensual

exploration of taste as a secret gateway to the richer life

available in the present moment. Participants will taste a

variety of chocolates, and wines after a rich, yet accessible

practice of Yoga postures.

$25 per person or $40 for two -

registration required

You taste so much more of the

chocolate and wine. Even the

chemistry of your saliva is different

when you’re relaxed. The piece

of chocolate is a metaphor for

everything in life. When you’re in

the moment, everything is sweeter,

and richer.

eating for a long period of time your blood sugar drops,

zapping your energy. Plan snacks to keep your energy up

and hunger at bay.

Dining out

An International Food Information Council study found that

most people order meals based on taste and price rather

than nutritional value. Some dishes, however, can rack up

more than 1,500 calories. Even if you think you’re making

a healthier choice, there are often hidden calories in salads

and sandwiches from creamy sauces and toppings. Read

the calorie counts now provided in many menus before


Portion Distortion

Do you think you can accurately eyeball a half-cup of

pasta or one ounce of cheese? Many people routinely

underestimate how much they are really eating. Try

measuring your food for a week. You will have a much

better idea of how much food is enough.

Keep these tips in mind and your New Year’s resolution may

not be so daunting. If you would like more nutritional tips

I would invite you to meet with the Club’s Dietitian Lyndia

Enright. I look forward to seeing you around the Club and

in the Fitness Center this year.

Penelope Greene joined the

Minneapolis Club in 2007.

The excellent fitness facilities

and professional trainers at

the Minneapolis Club drew

Penelope to the Club, and

she has maintained a regular

training schedule here for the

past four years.

Penelope credits her fitness

progress to her personal

trainer, Lani Varela. Penelope

says “Lani motivates me to

work hard. Her workouts are

always challenging and never

boring. She has monitored my

fitness level and my personal

sports training needs over the

past four years, and thanks to

her, I have had great success in

rowing, my favorite sport.”

Penelope also practices yoga,

and regularly participates in a

number of yoga classes since

the addition of the new studios.

Penelope also enjoys the

occasional spinning class. She

always has a positive attitude

and values the Fitness Center

staff. In addition to all that

she does at The Minneapolis

Club, Penelope is also an active

member of the Minneapolis

Rowing Club.
