Guided Meditation Series | Thursday Nights at 7:30pm

dreamstime_xxl_49156905

Starting this Thursday, Sanitas member Sol Halpern will be leading a 4-session weekly Meditation for CrossFit Athletes course at CrossFit Sanitas from 7:30pm – 8:15pm. The course will follow a progression building up to an immersive meditation experience “test day” in the final class.

Sessions will be held:

  • Thursday, April 28 @ 7:30p
  • Thursday, May 5 @ 7:30p
  • Thursday, May 12 @ 7:30p
  • Thursday, May 19 @ 7:30p

Each class will also be a good stand-alone experience, so there is no prerequisite of having attended the prior classes. Athletes who attend the whole course will gain an in-depth introduction to the practice and theory of meditation in an environment and format specifically designed to work in tandem with their CrossFit training.

This series is FREE for Clean Challenge participants and if you aren’t in the Clean Challenge it’s just $10/session.

Sign up here if you’re not in the Clean Challenge: http://crossfitsanitas.wodify.com/…/PurchaseByKeyEntry.aspx…

We’ll see you there Thursday!

Important Dates and Details for Spring Clean Challenge: Starts Monday!

Sanitas Clean Challenge

The Clean Challenge starts this Monday so be sure to sign up by Friday and pick up your scorecard. You will receive an email with breakfast, dinner and snack recipes and ideas, as well as encouragement to clean out your pantry on Friday. The idea is to take 30 days to eat well, exercise consistently, focus on your sleep, and indulge in five daily minutes of mindfulness.

At Sanitas we know how to motivate – you’ll have a coach, a team and a scorecard to help you surmount the obstacles of a full life outside the gym. Past participants have lost an average of 3% body fat and made huge gains in their performance. We’ll use before and after fitness tests and the Bod Pod fat test (optional) to measure results. You’ll also get a free 1:1 30-minute session with your coach! This is a gym-wide event so be sure to be a part of it.

“During the Sanitas Clean Challenge, I lost 7.5 lbs of fat, 4″ off my waist and hips, my chronic heartburn, and my emotional dependence on food and drink.” Mary M, Nurse Practitioner
