6 | Washington Athletic Club Magazine | JUNE / JULY 2015 WAC WOMEN'S & COED FITNESS MANAGER Maureen Eggers demonstrates the Side Climber, a twist on the traditional mountain climber that will give you a cardio kick while working your core. 1. Place hands under shoulders on a bench, box or step and walk feet backward into plank position. 2. Jump knees forward while rotating 90 degrees to left side of the body. 3. Jump back into plank position. 4. Repeat, this time bringing your knees to the right side. Do as many repetitions as you can in one minute. Focus on range of motion and speed. The big 100! HAPPY 100 TH BIRTHDAY to WAC member Harold Stack! A lifetime Seattleite, Harold was born July 5, 1915, at Swedish Medical Center. He attended Roosevelt High School and the University of Washington, graduating with a business degree in 1937. Harold worked at family- owned Stack Steel & Supply before serving in the Navy during World War II. When he returned to Seattle, Harold took over his father's position as company president. Harold joined the WAC in 1952 and is a Life Member (50-plus years). Following the death of Clifford Bartells (see story, page 8), Harold is the second-oldest living WAC member and one of two WAC centenarians. { BUZZ } J U N E / J U LY | 2 0 1 5 EXERCISE OF THE MONTH WAC MEMBER RON SAPP EMERGED VICTORIOUS from the 2015 U.S. Handball Association's Masters Handball Championships.
