The Liquid Diet

The six juices each day (from left to right) consisted of Detox Greens, Pineapple Apple Mint, Sweet Greens, Spicy Lemonade, UpBeet! and Coconut Fusion. My favorite by far was the Spicy Lemonade because it tasted just like regular lemonade but with a little spiced kick.

The Next Trending Elective

Demonstrating the start of a front choke defense, owner of The Mat and instructor Alec Rains teaches a defensive options class. This class is all about the fundamentals of Krav Maga, or self-defense, and is a great opportunity to begin learning specialized techniques and training the mind. “[Self-defense is] the foundations of what we call “life skills” that build character and good habits for living,” Rains said. “[These] life skills develop into awareness of the self and those around us. Having knowledge in protecting yourself physically plays a part [in training self-defense], but the actual reality of needing any physical skills to the degree we practice is nearly 100% avoidable.”
