Greetings to everyone who is part of the Legacy Sport & Wellness community.
In this week’s email, please note the additional Group Workouts in the Exercise Calendar section and the return of Open Sauna Sessions.
The month of October is dedicated to the subject of mental health.
Solomon Thomas and his parents Chris and Martha, have been a part of our community for a number of years. Solomon, #94, is a defensive tackle for the New York Jets professional football team. He and his family established The Defensive Line, a Foundation that is dedicated “ to help build a world in which no young person of color dies by suicide.”
Mental health is a complex topic that requires a multi-disciplinary approach. As part of one’s mental health care program, Regular exercise and optimal food choices are essential components in our paradigm at Legacy Sport & Wellness.

Mental Wellness Tip: Start some form of daily exercise and make it a routine going forward. Improve the quality of the food you eat; purchase and cook whole, nutrient dense foods and limit your intake of simple sugars and processed foods. Eliminate all foods that contain gluten.
Sports and Performance News
Many of you may remember the videos of Max Domi when he played for the Dallas Stars. Domi, now with the Toronto Maple Leafs, was a frequent visitor at Legacy Sport & Wellness, spending several hours a day working on his body in the gym or Recovery Center with Scott, with Cleo for soft tissue work, or in the Sauna.
To see what Max is doing now and how he has been received in his hometown of Toronto, click the link.
If you missed Sunday Night Football, John Franklin Myers, # 91, and Solomon Thomas, # 94, of the New York Jets both played good defensive games. Although John and Solomon are unable to be at our Center during the season, they both follow regular Home Programs while playing in New Jersey.

A Flash Sauna is not a Classic Sauna session or sauna training. A Flash Sauna is a quick sauna session with an entirely different objective than the Classic Sauna we use with many clients.
A Flash Sauna is a brief sauna used immediately following a workout session. Typically, a workout concludes with some Myofascial Stretching and ELDOA and then a client enters the Sauna, which stimulates blood flow, increases vaso-dilation, and begins the recovery process.
To learn more about incorporating our new Flash Sauna or Classic Sauna training, contact Claudia about a private session or enrolling in our Sauna Workshop.
