The cold weather snap that arrived Sunday evening set the conditions for perfect sauna use. With the temperatures dropping below freezing we have temporarily shut down the cold plunge and outdoor shower, but we expect to have those operational as soon as temperatures climb above freezing.

This weeks Wellness News section is devoted to the Training Table. The Training Table is the Legacy Sport & Wellness Center’s natural pharmacy. It is where it all begins as you learn how to feed and care for your body.
We are fortunate to have Chef Corey Schiller who prepares organic, gluten, dairy and soy-free, grass-fed and wild caught meals for our School Certification Courses and clients in town for Intensives. Many of you have enjoyed his breakfasts during a Certification Course weekend.
The first weekend of 2024, items from Chef Corey’s menu during the Winter Intensive included steak, sausage, eggs, salad, sweet potato hash, carrot and Brussel sprout medley, assorted berries, cut apples and pears, avocado and salsa. On Sunday, Corey served a Ginger Shot – fresh ginger, apples, oranges blended, skins and all!
- Ginger is a naturally occuring food that has a lot of health benefits associated with it. It is widely used as a spice and a folk medicine across the globe. Some health benefits of ginger are:
- It has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.
- Ginger can treat nausea and cough.
- It reduces muscle pain and soreness.
- Ginger drastically lowers blood sugars and improves heart disease risk factors.
- It helps to treat chronic indigestion.
- Ginger may lower cholesterol levels.
- Ginger may improve brain function and protect against Alzheimer’s disease.
- The active ingredient in ginger can help fight infections.
To compliment the Training Table, we have a dedicated area we call the Legacy Water Bar, in which we offer a variety of different types of local and international waters. Water is Nature’s First Medicine. Waters have different mineral profiles and different pH values. One of the most popular waters among our community members is Vellamo, a still mineral water from Finland. More on this water in the Lifestyle & Recovery Section below.
Sports and Performance News
Congratulations to Marc-Andre Fleury for moving into second place of the all-time most winning goalies in the NHL Scott first worked with Marc-Andre when he was playing with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Although Marc-Andre has never played for the Dallas Stars, when he travels here to play a game he schedules time for some work at Legacy Sport & Wellness Center. Scott says he is one of the best pros he has ever worked with…the work Fleury puts into both his game and his body, his attention to detail, and the way he carries himself. In one of his visits to Dallas, he shared with Scott two things he would like to do in the remainder of his career: score a goal… and be in a fight! Marc-Andre is a TRUE BILLYGOAT.

Lifestyle & Recovery Center
The weather is absolutely perfect for the Dry Sauna and Cold Plunge.
Our Recovery Center offers both an outdoor and an indoor recovery area following your Sauna session.
If you want to learn more about the Dry Sauna, cold immersion, the benefits of a regular Sauna practice and how to use heat and cold Contrast, enroll in Legacy’s next Sauna Tutorial, February date to be announced. Enrollment is limited to 8 people. If you would like to repeat the Sauna training course, it is half price. Purchase a special rate sauna card upon completion of the Tutorial and receive the most savings for your Dry Sauna practice.
A new shipment of Sauna Oils arrived and the oils are available for purchase at the Center.
A shipment of waters from around the world is scheduled to be delivered Jan. 19th. Pick up a Legacy Six-Pack of assorted waters or, better yet, get several cases from our Store.
Vellamo started as a glacier until the earth heated enough to start melting the ice. The melt traveled into a cavern formed beneath the earth’s surface. A massive glacier above seals the cavern off from air and pollution. With a pH of 8.3, Vellamo is the most alkaline water in our Water Bar. The name is from Finnish mythology meaning goddess spirit of water, or mother of water.
The SomaTraining/Therapy schedule for 2024 will be announced soon. Courses are scheduled to begin in February.
The 2024 Education calendar for SomaTraining, SomaTherapy, and the ELDOA is being finalized. Certification Courses are scheduled to begin in February, New for Scott’s Teaching Calendar: ELDOA Level 1&2 Combination, ELDOA Level 4 – Trainer Certification Practical (April-May dates to be announced), Sauna Certification Course, Cardiovascular and Conditioning Practical, ELDOA Level 3, Summer School Intensive, and ELDOA Level 4 in the fall of 2024.
Other SomaTherapy Courses are being finalized and will be added to Scott’s Teaching Calendar on the Legacy website soon.
If you have Course requests, email them to Claudia in the Business Office: email@example.com
ELDOA Trainer Level 4 Certification will be hosted in Dallas Spring of 2024. Tentative dates are being planned for the month of April.
In addition to Level 4, Dallas will host an ELDOA Level 2, and ELDOA Level 3 this Summer and possibly a second ELDOA Level 4 in the Fall of 2024. All of these courses will be hosted by Legacy Sport & Wellness and taught by Scott.
If you are an Instructor Candidate looking to assist a course, contact Claudia in the Business Office to be put on the list.
We would like to host a combination of ELDOA Level 1 (in the one-day format) combined with an Introduction to Myo-fascial Stretching very soon.
We ask all ELDOA Practitioners to visit the official ELDOA website – eldoavoyer.com – to make sure your contact information is accurate.
The way Legacy has our School set up in Dallas allows for Students to travel from all parts of the country for training and continuing education, while at the same time creating the opportunity to invest some of their personal time in their self-care using our Gym and Lifestyle-Recovery Center. We believe that this one-two combination can’t be beaten and we invite you to enroll in a course with us in 2024.
