Faster Healing & Better Health at Home
Unless you've been hiding under a rock, there's a really good chance you already know (And love!) Organic Sweat Shack in Old Town Newhall. The Main Street staple is where Santa Clarita goes to feel better, whether that's because they're struggling with an autoimmune disorder, a virus or just neck cramps from sitting at a computer too long. Guests pop into their professional-grade far infrared saunas for 30 minutes and emerge with clinically-proven results (Less pain, clearer skin, 600 calories lighter... and the list goes on and on.). Sweating has become so popular, in fact, that Organic Sweat Shack has begun selling their ultra-low-EMF (That's like radiation, and it's all sorts of yucky.) saunas straight to the public. Sure, you can snag an infrared sauna off of Amazon, but it won't have the muscle-penetrating power of OSS's pro-grade saunas, which are assembled with the highest-quality cedar, toxin-free glues and much more. Curious about owning your own so you can sweat whenever you want? (Do it! The benefits compound every time you sit, relax and detox!) Stop in or give 'em a call.

Get Fit as a Family
You work hard to model the behaviors you want your kids to replicate. So, how are you doing with normalizing exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle? If you haven't taught your children by example yet, there's still time - but the earlier you introduce regular exercise into your family's routine, the healthier everyone will be!

At The Paseo Club, there are classes that can be enjoyed with your child by your side - or set the older kids off to join special group classes that will get them loving the benefits of regular workouts long before they'll test for a driver's license. Even the littlest learners will understand the value of a heart-healthy workout when they play in Paseo's kids club while Mom or Dad get their sweat on.

It's time to put your yoga mat where your mouth is - and teach your children that to best care for others, you have to first take good care of yourself. Paseo makes it easy with a massive collection of classes at all hours of the day, as well as a pool with lap lanes, tennis courts, a gorgeous two-story workout facility and much more. Family memberships are much lower than you think; call for details.

Fuel your Fitness Goals in 2018
Have you ever heard the phrase, "Abs are made in the kitchen?" Well - it's true! What you put in at the dining table is as important as what you put out in your core class at the gym. If you're not properly fueling your workouts, you'll run out of steam and your body won't have the proper building blocks to create new muscle and most efficiently shed excess fat. Ready to drop pounds while upping your body's nourishment, cell by cell? Then it's time to check out Plate Therapy - a fresh-meal delivery and pick-up service that combines the joy of eating gourmet food with the holistic nutrition your body truly craves. Whole 30/Paleo friendly, your organic/sustainable meals arrive at your door fridge ready - or stop by their Valencia kitchen for Grab & Go options you can try out now. We can't get enough of the Grilled Salmon & Cauliflower Risotto; it's a six-ounce filet of Atlantic Salmon seasoned with a blend of spices, pan blackened and served over portabella mushroom, onion, green onion, tomato, fresh herbs and a delicious cauliflower "risotto." At $12 a plate, it's a protein-packed punch that's a real steal.

Heat Up Now for a Cooler Real-world Result
At Drenched, their new infared heaters have classes hotter than ever - and that's a good thing if you want your in-class exercise to translate to real-world results. Studies show that not only do "hot" exercise classes increase intensity, help you raise your heart rate and warm your muscles for deeper engagement - they also help you perform better out of class. Planning on running, cycling, training or playing in the heat this year? Regularly attending "hot" classes like those at Drenched will condition your body to sweat sooner and release less sodium when you do sweat. That means, in practice, you'll cool down faster and reduce your risk of dehydration, too. Of course, even if you don't have any plans to sweat outside of your heated exercise class, there are still the benefits of a higher calorie burn and increased challenge. Try Drenched now - your first class is only $10 - and give hot Barre, Pilates, Cardio Dance, Hip Hop Yoga or Warrior Conditioning a go.
