January Sponsor of the Month: Silicon Valley Athletic Club
Located in downtown San Jose, the Silicon Valley Athletic Club is a full-service sports facility. Formerly known as the San Jose Athletic Club, SVAC has been an SVRG sponsor since 2010. It offers full court basketball, racquetball courts, a 25-yard swimming pool, weight rooms, massage therapy, cardiovascular machines and group fitness classes. Locker rooms include steam, sauna and spa. The Corinthian Ballroom hosts a number of events throughout the year.
To prepare for our 2013 season, SVAC helped us with our second annual Hotter on Hiatus challenge. Skaters Foo Bar, Luna Chick, Mad 4 Gravy, LauRAWR, Leigh Featherstone and Lizapalooza all competed in the off-season challenge to improve body mass ratios, build strength, and face the season with a strong foundation. Each athlete was measured by SVAC personal trainers for weight, strength and fitness indicators. Mad 4 Gravy won the six-week challenge.
In addition to SVRG, SVAC partners with the San Jose Earthquakes, San Jose Sabercats, and Ballet San Jose. You can often find your favorite roller girls meeting up at the club for an off-skates workout or resting sore muscles in the hot tub.
