Yes the day You can do anything for 24 hours. Today is Monday. We think of Monday as the beginning of a week. The day to start fresh. But you don t need a Monday to begin a fit lifestyle. Any day of the week is a good day to start making healthy choices and to begin an exercise routine. It is natural in the beginning to lose the motivation to keep going after a few days. Research says that it typically takes about 21 days for new activity to become a habit. It won t happen overnight. Persistence and patience are required in the beginning. There is no better time than now to start living Healthy. Be realistic with your goals. The goal that you set for yourself may be to fit into a bikini by summer fit into your favorite jeans lower your cholesterol or run a 5k. Whatever it is define it write it down and revisit it daily. Just be sure it is realistic and you can actually adapt your lifestyle around meeting your goal. It s completely ok to make small changes to your everyday habits and increase the changes gradually. Setting reasonable goals that you can stick to and expanding on those new and better changes will help to make being fit a lifestyle not a New Year s Resolution diet that you give up on eventually. Things like switching from creamer to skim milk in your coffee taking the stairs instead of the elevator at work or slightly cutting down your portion sizes can make a big difference over time. Before you know it you may drop some pounds or reduce your cholesterol by a few points. These are minor changes you ll probably barely notice but they add up to make a healthier you Today is the day for being Awesome. Page 4 Bay County MVP Magazine February March 2016 Your Body Keeps An Accurate Journal Regardless Of What You Write Down. Keep a journal. Get a planner and write down your meals as well as the liquids you take in each day. Sometimes seeing it with your own eyes makes you feel a little more accountable for what you put into your body. Record your workouts and see your progress on paper. Not only is this motivating but if you find yourself needing a little extra help and advice from your physician or a trainer this will help them see what you have been doing so they can determine how and what about your diet and exercise needs to be modified. Obsessing over your slip ups will not help. Do the best you can each day and take one day at a time. If you miss a workout have that Starbuck s latte with whip and the toppings or a few drinks after work with friends don t sweat it too much. Just pick those healthy habits back up as soon as you can after getting off track. Do not let the mindset of already blowing your streak result in inhaling a burger and fries and thinking I ll start fresh tomorrow - or Monday . Stepping outside your comfort zone is scary but it s the only place that healthy changes and growth can take place. Your body deserves the best Bay County MVP Magazine February March 2016 Page 5 What s the deal with gluten fluffier . The problem now is that people s bodies are not able to digest this new form of gluten protein causing intestinal inflammation and malabsorption. And on top of that many more foods have gluten in them that we are not aware of. Since food manufacturers are not required by law to identify all possible sources of gluten on their labels gluten is hidden in most processed foods like soy sauce ready-made soups low fat products and many more. Celiac disease is different than gluten intolerance. Celiac is a true gluten allergy. Both can trigger a leaky gut by irritating the cells and causing the connections between them to open up. This allows larger particles to enter the bloodstream where autoimmune complexes form leading to inflammation in our bodies. Basically you feel bad and are unhealthier. When gluten is removed from your diet your gut starts to heal and you can absorb nutrients and become healthier. -Dr. Myra Reed Why does it seem that all of a sudden everyone is talking about going gluten or wheat free Even restaurants and grocery stores have gluten free labels or sections. Is this another fad diet or is there something to this With the rise of certain GI symptoms abdominal pain or bloating nausea constipation diarrhea and chronic or autoimmune diseases such as skin rashes Hashimoto s thyroiditis joint aches or arthritis headaches weight gain fatigue insomnia neurologic disorders-ADD autism dementia confusion and other chronic diseases People are advised to go gluten free. Why is this For thousands of years people have sustained on grains such as wheat. We were told the benefits of whole grain with the importance of the fiber and nutrients. But in recent years things have really changed. First the invention of the modern steel roller mill replaced the slower old stone methods that used to mash all the good parts of the grain together (proteins vitamins minerals lipids). The new system would separate and grind only one part of the grain into a fine white flour that anyone could afford. It could be shipped and stored for extended periods increasing production and profitability. The reason it keeps for longer periods is due to the stripped nutrients along with additives and preservatives that our bodies are not happy with. Pest problems were eliminated because they wouldn t eat it. Another revolution in the early 60 s was the invention of high yield genetically changed improved semidwarf wheat that would solve the world hunger. It is a distant relative to the wheat used even 40 years ago. Glutens were also increased to make products Page 6 Bay County MVP Magazine February March 2016 Superfoods A Few Add kale into your next smoothie for a nutritional boost. KALE is a dark leafy green is packed full of QUINOA is one of the world s most fiber and vitamins. Just like quinoa kale is considered a superfood because it s so nutritionally dense. Before we get to all the benefits let me briefly explain what kale is. Kale is a popular vegetable that can be green or purple in color and have a smooth or curly shape with a fibrous stem. It is a member of the cabbage family and related to vegetables like broccoli cauliflower collard greens and brussels sprouts. Given the incredibly low calorie content kale is among the most nutrient dense foods in existence. Eating more kale is a great way to dramatically increase the total nutrient content of your diet. (3) Make a green smoothie. Toss a handful of raw kale (ribs removed) into your next smoothie for a nutritional boost. popular superfoods. It is loaded with protein fiber and minerals but doesn t contain any gluten. Quinoa is a grain crop that is grown for its edible seeds. It is pronounced KEEN-wah. It is basically a seed which is prepared and eaten similarly to a grain. With 8 grams of quality protein per cup of cooked quinoa it is an excellent plant-based protein source for vegetarians and vegans. Being high in protein can both increase metabolism and reduce appetite significantly (1). The high amount of fiber should also help to increase feelings of fullness making us eat fewer calories overall (2).

Fondly known to herbalists as the stinking rose for centuries there has been many traditional medicine uses for Garlic including treatment of skin conditions immune support antimicrobial and to reduce risk for cancer and heart disease. In fact Garlic is one of the most widely studied herbal supplements for its beneficial effects on the heart. Garlic Good for Your Heart The amount of active compounds supplied by garlic supplements can vary because allicin is very sensitive to things such as air and heat. For example aging garlic to reduce its odor also reduces the allicin present and compromises the effectiveness of the product. Generally safe for most adults taking a garlic supplement can cause heartburn upset stomach an allergic reaction and breath and body odor (common with raw garlic). Garlic should not be taken by persons who are preparing for surgery or who have bleeding disorders because it can impair the body s ability to form blood clots. Garlic contains several vitamins and minerals that support heart health including vitamin B6 vitamin C manganese and selenium. But it s the chemicals that give garlic its pungent odor that scientists believe are the source of the herb s heart health-promoting effects. Garlic is rich in the allicin alliin and ajoene antioxidant compounds that help reduce the risk for cardiovascular disease. Studies on garlic and the cardiovascular system typically use garlic powder oil or aged extracts. To date the effects of garlic on the heart that are supported by science include Slows the development of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) Reduces blood pressure Reduces triglycerides and therefore lowers total cholesterol Resources World s Healthiest Foods Garlic. http www.whfoods.com genpage.php tname foodspice&dbid 60 National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health.

The world belongs to the enthusiastic. For people will follow them anywhere. - Andy Andrews I am so grateful that I have started back running even if it is a slow start. The glorious thing is that I am faster than I am while sitting on the sofa. Every time I start back running I always wonder Why oh why did I ever quit I guess having foot surgery was a valid excuse but I bailed on running long before that. I let my work life and responsibilities convince me that this time for me was just not in the cards. I am beyond grateful that I am making the time for it now. With every step I take I thank God for the ability to move and I think about other people who would love to be moving but cannot. SO WHILE I CAN I WILL While I can I will be thankful for all of it the rubbing together of thighs the cramps the heavy breathing - all of which are signs that I am living breathing and moving.

After spending a day with Jaye it is obvious that he is exactly that. However Jaye is a normal dude whose athletic talent is not so normal . Jaye roamed the same halls of Mosley High School and was late for the same class because of the same vending machine line as every other Dolphin student. What sets Jaye apart from the other Mosley Dolphins is his strong determination never give up attitude and his amazing athletic talent. Chapman had every intention of playing baseball for the University of Alabama until he received a life changing Page 14 Bay County MVP Magazine February March 2016 offer the summer after graduating from Mosley in 2005. The Atlanta Braves organization drafted Jaye in the 16th round offering him draft and follow status which sent him to Chipola State College for one year to better prepare him to enter professional baseball in 2006. Like any other athlete Jaye had his ups and downs. He was moved from league to league while playing for the Braves organization. After making the 40 man roster for the Braves Jaye was traded to the Chicago Cubs where he made his first major league debut in 2012. Jaye says that day was one of the best days of his life. After having two hip surgeries in 2013 Jaye was out for the rest of that year and half of the 2014 season. Jaye claimed that it was terrible timing since he had just began a run at the big leagues. Traded once more Jaye is currently a pitcher for the Milwaukee Brewers and will be reporting to Arizona for spring training in 2016. When I asked Jaye what advice he would give any upcoming player he replied control the controllable . Playing professionally numerous things were out of Jaye s hands such as who he played for and when he pitched. Jaye says one of the best things he has learned throughout his career is knowing what he can control and what he cannot. As a college softball player I related to Jaye in several ways. Listening to Jaye tell me shyly about his strange superstitions made me giggle. Just like almost every athlete we all have our own superstitions and traditions. However meeting someone with weirder superstitions than mine was rather surprising. I have been known to listen to music with a slower tempo because I seem as if I am trying to solve world peace during the game. Jaye also being self-amped and a high-strung person listens to Closer by Kings of Leon to relax him when he takes the mound. Of course superstitious athletes might have our favorite game socks gloves and underwear but Jaye takes his superstitions to the next level. Jaye gets dressed and ready for the game the same way every time. When something feels out of whack Jaye will take all his clothes off and start his morning routine over again. Not only does Jaye relate to other athletes and our superstitious ways but like every other Mosley Dolphin who had a certain teacher (Mr. Hair) Jaye also has his chemistry class stories. All former students of Mr. Hair know his chemistry class is tough but his class rules are even tougher. Jaye was that guy that always pushed the boundaries and showed no mercy to Mr. Hair s stern No Eating in the Classroom rule. Jaye waited in line at the vending machine and sprinted to class with his cherry pop tart in hand to no avail. Mr. Hair also showed no mercy and demanded he leave the class room immediately. Not being able to persuade Mr. Hair to let him finish his snack Jaye stood strong with his toes right on the crack of the doorway enjoying his afternoon treat thinking he was finally going to show Mr. Hair who was boss. Just as quickly as Jaye sprinted to class with his pop tart Mr. Hair slammed the door in Jaye s face even faster As a Major League pitcher Jaye could receive his medical care and training anywhere he wishes. However Jaye chooses to train and receive care from the same physicians that many Bay County athletes use. When asked if anyone one Bay County MVP Magazine February March 2016 Page 15 person or coach that has influenced him he named proudly First Choice Physical Therapy s MVP performance enhancement specialist and athletic trainer Brent Holtgrewe Coach Todd Harless Coach Mike Kandler Coach Doug Lee and his former coach at Chipola Coach Jeff Johnson. Jaye speaks very highly of all the help these mentors have given and continue to give him. Jaye will not do a workout without Brent s knowledge and approval. Jaye has the utmost faith and trust in Brent and thinks of him like a brother. As a matter of fact if Jaye is not spending time with his parents Joel and Jan Chapman and his brother Joel (Chap) a Panama City fireman he can be found working out with Brent or throwing bullpens at Mosley at The Dugout or at Gulf Coast State College baseball field. Join me in wishing the best of luck to this not so normal normal dude as he starts his season with the Milwaukee Brewers. Jaye Chapman is proof that not all nice guys finish last Pictures to right Jaye Chapman working out with MVP Trainer Brent Holtgrewe MEET Brent Holtgrewe is the Director of Sports Medicine at First Choice Physical Therapy and MVP Sports Enhancement.

Aside from spending countless hours in the clinic and on the field Brent enjoys a team of his own at home. He is married to his high school sweetheart Sandy also from St. Louis and has six children ranging from 2 to 8 years old. Satisfaction is the death of desire is one of Brent s favorite quotes to use with his athletes. He wants them to understand that in sports and life you can never become satisfied with where you are if you ever want to truly reach your full potential. It is the desire that keeps us fighting through blood sweat and tears to reach that next level and obtain the unobtainable. He pushes them to their limits breaking down physical and mental walls standing in the way of athletic success. His ultimate goal is to help athletes find out how bad they want it and how hard they are willing to push themselves to achieve it. TAKE YOUR SPORT TO THE NEXT LEVEL WWW.READYTOGETBETTER.COM TIPS from MVP SPORTS ENHANCEMENT EXPERT Brent Holtgrewe Keeping a safe pitch count is important to the health of a pitcher s arm. Equally as important is ensuring proper throwing mechanics maintaining range of motion and mobility working on strength and endurance and performing a proper warm-up. Pitchers believe that throwing will strengthen the shoulder adequately. However this thinking is flawed and leads to injury down the road. Without focused strengthening and stretching of the primary stabilizers specifically the posterior musculature of the shoulder and scapula the athlete will not be able to effectively decelerate the arm--resulting in poor throwing mechanics loss of ROM and injury. Below are the core shoulder exercises you can perform to prevent injury from occurring and keep you on the mound. These exercises work well for any overhead throwing hitting athlete such as softball and volleyball players. These exercises focus specifically on maintaining mobility and ROM throughout the shoulders as well as strengthening the posterior musculature. EXTERNAL ROTATION Stand sideways with the attached elastic on the opposite side from the shoulder you are strengthening. Place towel glove etc. between elbow and body to help isolation. Grasp elastic in hand elbow bent to 90. Rotate arm outward and return. Slowly return to start position and repeat. EXTENSION Stand facing the exercise band. Grasp the band out in front at about 45 degrees of shoulder flexion. Keeping your elbow straight pull the band back into shoulder extension just past your hip. (Do not lean forward to get more shoulder extension.) Slowly return to start position and repeat. EXTERNAL ROTATION AT 90 DEGREES Stand facing the exercise band. Keeping your elbow bent at 90 degrees and at shoulder level. Rotate your hand back into a throwing position just past your ear. Slowly return to start position and repeat. D2 FLEXION Attach the elastic band at ankle height Stand sideways with the arm crossed over the body grasping the band at the opposite hip with the palm facing in and thumb down Raise the arm up and diagonally across the body to a 45 degree angle between the shoulder and head. Slowly return back to the starting point Make sure not to rotate the body. SCAPULAR RETRACTION (ROWS) Stand facing the exercise band. Start with your arms straight and your shoulder blades forward. Move your arms back while bending your elbows and pinching your shoulder blades together. Return to the starting position. Bay County MVP Magazine February March 2016 Page 19 DOORWAY STRETCH Stand at doorway with forearms on door frame elbows bent at 90 degrees at or above shoulder height. Keep back straight and step forward with one leg until a stretch is felt across chest and in front of shoulders. Hold for 1 minute and repeat 3 times. SLEEPER STRETCH Lie on your side. Position the arm you are lying on at a 90 degree angle to your body with your elbow bent at 90 degrees. Rest your chin on your shoulder to help isolate the posterior capsule Using the other arm gently push the forearm of the shoulder you are laying on downward. Hold for 1 minute and repeat 3 times.

Having coached over 70 players who have been drafted including big-leaguers David Herndon Will Smith Bob Wickman Tim Spooneybarger and Terrance Gore Coach Kandler is no stranger recognizing and developing bigtime talent. How do you feel about your team this season Looking forward to a great season with some talented players. We have a shot to be pretty good. Several of our players are local boys. Current Gulf Coast sophomore Nick Nelson has signed with the University of Florida and Bowen McGuffin has signed with Auburn for next year. Do you have any local boys joining the team next year Local kids joining the Gulf Coast program next year will include our first Bozeman player Alec Aleywine (Pitcher FB) Jacquez Koonce From Rutherford (outfield) and JT Duncan from Bay High (SS Utility). By Jennifer Watson After spending some time with Coach Kandler I quickly realized his depth of wisdom when it comes to recruiting players and helping move players on to the next level in baseball. He offered some great advice for not only student athletes of all sports but for parents and even pros. Page 22 Bay County MVP Magazine February March 2016 Other than being a good athlete what else do you look at in a player Many students wait until their junior or senior year to start focusing on their grades. That is definitely the wrong approach. What you do starting day one of your freshman year stays with you. It is really hard to get caught back up if you slacked in the early years. If an athlete is a rock solid super star with average grades we can always find tutors to assist them with their education but it sure helps if they are a good student. I as well as most coaches put great emphasis on education and character. If you re good in the classroom you are much more attractive as a recruit. Having good character is the biggest part of being good at anything. What is your advice on playing more than one sport While in your early teens have fun and play as many sports as you possibly can. Being diverse develops you athletically. Once you get into your later years of high school select your favorite sport and give it your all -developing your skills for that particular sport. If you are a good athlete you will be a better baseball player. Work on strength training like climbing robes pushups and climbing trees when you re young. About the age of puberty you should start in the weight room with some strength training as well as speed and agility drills. What is your advice on social media Golden rule- don t ever post anything that would embarrass yourself your team or your family. If it is fun positive or informative then post away. The college has a social media policy for athletes. Most coaches myself included actually have private accounts and do check out potential recruits and current player s social media. I have reconsidered players due to their inappropriateness and misuse of social media. It all goes back to character. What role does a player s appearance play in recruiting I grew up in the 70 s so I try to go with the flow as much as possible. Long hair on guys was just a fashion fad and it still comes and goes today. I try to look past the long hair and even tattoos without being too judgmental. A sloppy appearance on the other hand is not good for anyone. In the words of Herb Brooks I m not looking for the best players I am looking for the right ones . What advice do you have for parents of athletes Like most coaches at this level I do not like to see what we call helicopter parents . I notice when parents hand kids Gatorades carry out their bat bags and coach from the sidelines. I understand loving your kids but you are not doing them any favors. Don t get me started on the Black Hawk helicopter parents. Those are the ones that just cause complete destruction. If they feel their kid is not getting enough playing time they move them on and off teams have them switching schools and take down anyone in their way. This takes away some of the most important life lessons that sports have to offer teamwork and commitment. They take this team sport and make it all about one individual person their kid. Not everyone can be a Mickey Mantle and someone has to do the dirty work. Parents should be proud of their kids for being on the team and realize that not everyone can make the papers but that doesn t mean that their position on the team is not important. Athletic success does not equal happiness. Parents need to realize the positive aspects of their kids just being part of a team and help their kids to feel important. What advice do you have for pro athletes and future pro athletes We have had so many pro baseball players come from our local community that young athletes may not realize the actuality of just how few baseball players make it to the pro level. Not to be a dream killer but the number low. There are also additional challenges for those few athletes who do make it to stay healthy enough to remain at that level. I would suggest getting the education you need and getting a good financial planner that you can trust because it doesn t last forever.

If You Are In Pain & Want Help Fast Call Our Doctors Today HOPE FOR HAIR LOSS Advanced Restoration Method and Technology Come to Panama City Many of us don t give a second thought to how quickly our hair grows until we notice it s looking a bit shaggy and decide it s time for a trim. Others regularly schedule trips to the barber or salon to maintain a desired appearance or style. But just as our hair continually grows it also sheds. Barely noticeable as we shampoo brush and comb the average person sheds 50 to 100 hairs per day. However if we begin to notice an increased rate and amount of shedding hair -- more hair on our pillow in the shower or on the hairbrush -- it can be concerning. Temporary periods of excessive shedding known as telogen effluvium are common in people who have experienced high stress events or physiological changes. As your circumstances change and your body adjusts normal hair growth resumes usually regaining its fullness within 6 to 9 months. Shedding is different than hair loss. Hair loss occurs when something prevents the hair from growing. Until the cause is determined and can be treated hair loss will continue. The most common causes of hair loss are Heredity Immune system imbalance Side effect of some drugs or medical treatments Emotional condition that compels the patient to pull out their hair The use of harsh hair products or aggressive styling methods If you believe your hair loss may be the result of a drug or medical treatment it is best to seek the advice of your primary care physician. An examination by a dermatologist is best to determine other causes that may require and respond to treatment.

Especially for one young lady that has dreamed of it her entire life. As her senior season begins my time being her coach comes to an end. My daughter Abbigail Barron has signed to play softball at Faulkner University in Montgomery Alabama. This has been her passion and dream for years. Not once did she waiver. Our family has done everything possible to help her reach this goal. Thousands of dollars have been spent for fundraising items camps and tournament fees. All in hopes that one day Abbigail would be recruited. So imagine how excited we became that Coach Wynn decided to give her that opportunity to play in college. For me however this was a bitter sweet moment and time for some reflection. yeas old. We began in recreational ball progressed to travel ball and lastly high school. Our softball journey has taken us from the t-ball fields of Callaway to the ASA 18A Nationals in Montgomery and South Carolina. I think we have played at every major complex in the southeast.There are just too many places to list them all. We have seen a lot of country and put many miles on our car all in the name of softball. Over the years the teams have changed players have come and gone and yet the one true constant has been Abbigail and myself. I have coached her in every game she has ever played. Not too many dads can say that. I have watched her go from a tiny little red headed kid playing in the dirt to an accomplished young woman that happens to be a pretty good softball player. On the field she has become the ultimate The Healing Power of Oxygen I couldn t be more grateful to be able to get back in the game that fast - Sean Maddox Mosley High School football player Sean Maddox was feeling healthy and stronger than ever for his senior year of sports. Sean his family teammates and coaches were all disappointed when he received a grade 3 tear of his MCL while at practice in the middle of football season. The typical rehab protocol for this type of injury is approximately 6-8 weeks of rest and usually competitor. Always the smallest and the coach s kid she had to fight incredibly hard to succeed. Not only did she have to earn the respect of her team mates but also prove to their parents she earned her spot on the field. She has been named to All State and All County three times. Each year it was for a different position on the field. In addition to her success on the field Abbigail was also named to the All State Academic and All County Academic Teams for the past three years. I never realized how her determination to succeed on the field would trickle over into other parts of her life. The final question is was it worth it Was it worth all the money time and sacrifice Absolutely and I can say that without a single doubt. Watching the flood of tears roll down her face and the sheer joy erupt all over her face as Coach Wynn asked her to come to Faulkner and play. I would not change a thing. All of the bad and all of the good were completely worth it to see that happiness as she achieved her dream. Softball has taught my entire family some life long lessons. It has given us the opportunity to meet some interesting people and provided us with some ever lasting memories. Plus it helped me produce one outstanding young lady. One that I am very proud to have call me dad aka coach. Go Gett em Red Love Dad and Barron on) Abbie vid Barr ach Da dad (Co her a straight leg brace to allow for the tear to repair itself. For Sean this just wasn t an option for his senior year. Like many Bay County athletes he called upon the local Sports Medicine Physical Therapists at First Choice Physical Therapy. Dr. Wade Rinehart owner of First Choice as well as Hyperbaric Centers of Excellence decided to put Sean in the hyperbaric chamber to speed up his recovery time. Sean received 6 high pressure dives in the chamber and the ultrasounds before and after the treatments confirmed the accelerated healing of his knee. His tear went from a 1.8 cm tear to a .5 tear and he was back on the field in ten days. Sean finished out the football season without re-injuring his leg or suffering further damage to his leg. He is healthy strong and is starting his senior year of baseball thanks to the professionals and treatment at Hyperbaric Centers of Excellence.
