December News (2009)
The fairly warm November weather has faded, and with the colder weather can come the desire for heartier fare and evenings in front of the fire with a nice glass of cabernet. Here at Practice, we’re prescribing moderation during the onset of winter, and a game plan for your New Year’s resolutions. Here’s a brief look at our Practice Strength program and what’s new at the studio in December:
For many, the new year is an opportunity for goal setting and making a fresh start, and the PracticeTM Strength program is designed to help you not only establish a vision for your best self, but to follow through on your goals by establishing life practices of strength building, cardiovascular health, flexibility and a healthy diet. Following the program established by Shawn Phillips in his book, Strength for Life, Practice instructors and mentors guide participants as they create personal vision statements, goals, meal plans and workout regimens. The support group meets weekly for 14 weeks then monthly throughout the remainder of the year to deepen team encouragement, cooperation, and accountability. We begin with an informational meeting on Sunday, January 10, 2010 at 9a, and the program starts in earnest January 17th. If you are interested in making positive change for yourself, or know someone who is, please consider the PracticeTM Strength program. We will be mailing a postcard to you in the next week, and will have posters available as well. Please feel free to forward them to anyone you think might be interested.
For the holiday season, please also consider a Practice gift certificate for a friend or family member. If they are a new client, then the New Journey package for $99 is a great way to start the new year: it includes three private or semi-private sessions and one Pilates matwork or Yoga class.
We also will have some wonderful PracticeTM shirts, pants and jackets for sale starting the middle of next week. Each is embroidered with our logo, and will pair very nicely with a gift certificate!
Join Patrick for a special New Years Day TRX/Reformer class designed to help you sweat out the New Year’s Eve toxins and get 2010 off to a fabulous start. Class starts at 11a, which will give you plenty of time in the morning to rest and and hydrate!
On a more sobering note, I want to let you know we will experience a minimal price increase in 2010 to offset rising costs. Privates, duets and group reformer packages will increase by $1/session starting January 1. Pricing for Matwork, Yoga and TRX/Matwork Combo classes will remain the same. All packages purchased prior to January 1 will be honored at 2009 rate.
Lastly, I want to wish everyone a very happy holiday, be it Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza. Thank you in advance for all your continued support as we move with Strength toward opportunities in the new year.
