Are you ready to OPTIMIZE your whole body health routine? Welcome October! We have new sessions and new times now available with our Personal Trainers to help you reach your full potential. Our potential is God’s gift to us; what we do with that potential is our gift back to God! Let’s do this friends! Today is the day for total transformation. Change is temporary- transformation is forever!
We know how hard it is to find rest with “full” schedules. With a new month beginning, set a new goal to focus on finding time to slow down, stretch, and rest in the Lord. He is the only one who can renew your body, mind, and spirit. Your challenge this month is to stretch for at least 5 minutes every day, breathing deeply and clearing your mind, finding recovery while practicing stillness. We are so proud of all your hard work in the studio and at home and want to encourage you to keep focused on your fall goals. We would love to meet with you 1-1 this month to re-set and renew your body, mind, and spirit.

Fall Harvest Transformer Salad
• 10 oz of organic baby greens (like spinach, arugula, kale, chard, etc.)
• 1 cup roasted butternut squash
• 1 cup toasted pecans
•. 1 cup raspberries
• 1 ounce goat cheese
• 1 sprig of fresh basil (chopped)
• 1 small organic semi-sweet apple (like Honey crisp or Pink Lady )
• 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar
• 1 teaspoon of dijon mustard
• 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice
• 1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil
• 1 tablespoon maple syrup if needed (not necessary)
• Salt, to taste
• Pepper, to taste
Pre-heat oven to 400. Prep the roasted butternut squash (chop or buy pre-chopped & sprinkle with cinnamon) and pop it in the oven.
While the squash is roasting, 400 * 30 min, toast pecans. This takes about 10 minutes, then you can spread them on some parchment paper to cool while you make the rest of the salad.
Combine all the ingredients for the homemade vinaigrette in a glass jar with a lid and shake well to emulsify the olive oil. Set this aside to let the flavors develop.
Wash raspberries, and thinly slice the apple sprinkle with lemon juice.
By now the squash should be done and the pecans toasted. Assemble the salad by pouring the greens into a large serving bowl, then place each ingredient on top of the greens. If desired, you can fan out the apple slices to make them look fancy.
Right before eating, toss the salad in a BIG SALAD BOWL to mix up all the ingredients.
