Not Just a New Year’s Resolution: See How to Stay Healthy All Year Long

Posted on: January 25, 2022

St Andrews Country Club Nutrition Expert Tips

Named one of the “Top Ten Healthiest Clubs in America,” St. Andrews Country Club believes that health and wellness are the foundation for making the most of life. Maureen Buchbinder, Health & Nutrition Educator at St. Andrews since 2014, offers one-on-one consultations to help both residents and employees live a healthier lifestyle. Here’s how Maureen suggests St. Andrews members work towards their health goals this year.

Maintain A Healthy Diet

After enjoying all the culinary delights of the holiday season, many people resolve to eat healthier in the New Year. Known for fresh and inventive cuisines, the St. Andrews culinary program caters to each resident’s dietary needs, ensuring anyone can reach their goals. A well-balanced diet has incredible benefits, including a boosted immune system, a lower risk of heart disease, and stronger muscles. Maureen is also at the Gallery once a month during lunch hour to answer any nutrition-related questions and guide residents in creating food plans catered to their needs.

“The importance of maintaining a well-balanced diet is essential for preventing infections and diseases,” said Maureen. “When we eat a full range of lean protein, low glycemic carbs, healthy fats, and many different vegetables, and some fruits, we can control our weight, improve our immune system, and live a longer, healthier life.”

Be More Active

As the most popular New Year’s resolution, many people wish to create a steady exercise routine. Studies have shown that boosting activity levels can have tremendous effects on one’s health, including a reduced risk of heart disease, improved cognitive function, and strengthen muscles and bones. The Fitness Center at St. Andrews promotes the health and wellness of its members through a cardio room, aerobics room, separate mind and body Yoga studios, a comprehensive Pilates studio, and more. On-site trainers and physical therapists are also available to keep members motivated and enthusiastic.

“Exercise is essential to a healthy diet,” said Maureen. “They work hand in hand. Exercise entices you to make better food choices to attain your exercise goals and increase your metabolism. Researchers have found the more a person exercises, the more their diet tends to improve as well.”

Try Something New

Ultimately, when it comes to health and wellness, every person is unique in how they achieve their goals. However, one secret to success could be to try something new. St. Andrews Members have a wide range of activities and machines available to find the perfect fit for them. Over 50 complimentary group classes are offered every week, including aquacise, Zumba, Pilates, yoga, and more.

“The biggest advice I can give to the residents who have made it their resolution to be more active and health-conscious this year is to try new activities, try a new machine, try healthier food choices, ask questions, and have fun with your new adventure,” said Maureen.

Along with state-of-the-art fitness facilities, St. Andrews is also home to two 18-hole championship golf courses with virtually no tee times and a notable tennis program with 14 clay courts. The Clubhouse is the epicenter of activity, with a full service, award-winning spa & salonfour restaurantsthree poolsKids Club, playground, and more. With only 730 families living in this low-density community, members form true, lasting bonds, creating a welcoming environment unlike any other.

With a prime location in upscale Boca Raton, Florida, this country club is near some of the city’s highlights, ranging from Florida Atlantic University, the Wick Theatre, and some of Florida’s best beaches.
