November 1st – Fall Roots Wise Cleanse Class: Spring and Fall are the best times to do a cleanse. Our bodies take a beating, both good and bad, every day with what we put into them, how we treat them, what surrounds them in our environment and how we move them. The ugly truth is that we live in a world where we are exposed to more toxins than our bodies are designed to handle. We store heavy metals and other pollutants in our bodies that can be found in the air we breath, the water we drink and even in the objects we choose to surround ourselves with. Not to mention, every time we work out we are creating junk for our body to have to clean up. Cleansing helps our bodies detoxify, recover, replenish and become reinvigorated so we can keep doing the things we love with all the energy we want. Roots Wise has created an effective, energizing, yet easy detoxification program that anyone can follow and feel incredible with! You will be set up with a 10 day program to detox your bodies, prepare for winter, re-energize, get rid of some funky issues and get a new perspective.

November 8th- The Complicated World of Supplements and SuperFoods: There are so many products out there and so many people saying one thing or another. What do you need and what don’t you need? What can you truly benefit from and what is all hype? What protein powder is the best for you? What added nutrients do you need to take your game to the next level or simply enhance overall health? These are some of the things we will cover in this class. So if you want to enhance your athletic performance with added nutrients or work to gain better overall health, this class will provide you with great info to help you to make the right decisions in this area.

What Would a Beast Eat?!

September 13th 7pm-8:30pm. $15

Next nutrition class at The Confluence is centered around eating to fuel yourself for that upcoming obstacle race, namely the Spartan Beast in Killington, VT on Sept 22-23rd…..

Are you going to the Spartan Beast?? Or are you participating in an upcoming endurance race? Want to be as prepared as you can be for that race? After all you did pay good money for this race, you might as well give it your all! These races are long and grueling and lots of people risk ‘bonking’, ‘hitting the wall’ or ‘cramping up’ becasue they haven’t prepared as best they can with proper fuel. What kind of food you choose for fuel WILL make or break your expereince and how well or not you do. This class will cover what to eat the week leading up to the Beast or another similar race, what to eat the night before and the morning of. We will also be discussing important electrolyte requirements to help you avoid cramping up. In addition we will go over, what foods etc to eat mid race to keep you in the game! There are plenty of other considerations we can discuss as well, like what are you going to wear, the best shoes and socks, etc.
