TRUFUSION YOGA HOSTING TOY DRIVE AND “TRU SWEAT-A-THON” TO BENEFIT AFAN
Toy drive will culminate with 24 hours of nonstop classes

 

TruFusion, a new local Las Vegas fitness boutique that offers classes including yoga, Pilates, kettle bells and TRX, is hosting a toy drive to benefit Aid for AIDS of Nevada (AFAN), an organization that helps those affected by HIV and AIDS in Southern Nevada. The last-minute rally for toys will be a “Tru Sweat-a-thon” event that features 24 hours of continuous classes such as dancefusion, black light power flow yoga and vino & vinyasa.  Visit trufusionyoga.com for a complete event schedule.

 

Tru Sweat-a-thon will begin at 11 a.m. on Sunday, December 8 and end at 11 a.m. on Monday, December 9.

 

“TruFusion is grateful for the support its new fitness studio is receiving from the Southern Nevada community and is hosting the drive as a way to give back,” said Ruth Furman, director of marketing communications.

 

New and unused toys may be dropped off in the designated bin at TruFusion, located at 8575 S. Eastern Avenue in Las Vegas, during operating hours. Donors will receive a TruFusion 1-day pass. When a new guest redeems that pass and takes a class, TruFusion will donate $1 to AFAN.

 

“Passes are transferable and make great stocking stuffers,” Furman said.

 

When Tru Sweat-a-thon commences, the classes that are part of the event will be offered at no charge for a donation of a new and unwrapped toy or toys, or a cash donation with all proceeds going to AFAN. Throughout the course of the toy drive, when a customer purchases an annual TruFusion Yoga membership, a discounted rate will be offered with a portion of the proceeds going to AFAN.

Scale the Strat Announces First Ever Sneak “Peak” Practice Climb on Saturday, January 18, 2014

scale the strat

Scale the Strat Announces First Ever Sneak “Peak” Practice Climb on Saturday, January 18, 2014
Climbers can Experience the Altitude before March 2, 2014 Extreme Event

For the first time in Scale the Strat’s six-year history, climbers will get the opportunity to experience the altitude inside Stratosphere Tower during a special sneak “peak” practice climb months before the March 2, 2014 extreme stair climb event.

The first ever Scale the Strat Sneak “Peak” Practice Climb will be on Saturday, January 18, 2014 starting at 7 a.m. inside the stairwells of the iconic Stratosphere Tower, at Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower.

Practice climbers will be assigned to small groups and allowed to climb the 234 stairs between Level 101 and Level 112 as many times as possible in 30-minute intervals.  Level 112 of Stratosphere Tower is above the Observation Deck and four floors above the official Scale the Strat finish line. As climbers reach Level 112, they will be outdoors and experience one of the best views in Las Vegas.

“This is truly a special experience as we only open up the stairwell inside our Tower to the public on rare occasions and we have never allowed access to this outdoor area of Level 112,” said Kimberly Huff, Operations Manager at Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower.

The practice climb is limited to the first 200 climbers who register on www.ScaletheStrat.com.  The cost is $40.  Interested climbers can reserve on line or sign up on practice climb day at the Stratosphere Tower (based on availability). All proceeds support American Lung Association in Nevada (ALAN).

“We have had so many requests to experience what the climb is like over the years that we decided to give potential climbers and veteran Scale the Strat climbers the opportunity to test their endurance and get a taste of what it takes to conquer all 1,455 steps inside Stratosphere Tower,” said Allison Newlon-Moser, Executive Director of the American Lung Association in Nevada.

Those who participate in the January 18 Scale the Strat Sneak “Peak” Practice Climb will be able to sign up for Scale the Strat 2014 at a discounted “super saver” rate of $40 – a savings of up to $35.  All climbers are asked to fundraise an additional $150 for the American Lung Association in Nevada (ALAN).

In 2013, a record 560 people signed up to participate in Scale the Strat and climbed all 108 floors and 1,455 steps inside The Stratosphere Tower, the highest building west of the Mississippi River.  The event raised an unprecedented $175,000 for the American Lung Association in Nevada’s mission of preventing lung diseases and promoting lung health.

Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower is offering a special room rate for those traveling to participate in the Scale the Strat Sneak “Peak” practice climb or who want to make a “stay-cation” out of the weekend.  Practice climbers can receive a room rate of $65 for Friday, January 17 and Saturday, January 18, 2014.  To take advantage of this special rate, call 800-998-6937 and use the code C-ALAPC.  Please note this promotional code cannot be used on a third party site.

MGM Resorts International Gears Up for Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Las Vegas

MGM RESORTS INTERNATIONAL GEARS UP FOR ROCK ‘N’ ROLL MARATHON LAS VEGAS

For marathon runners, dramatic landscapes and backdrops can make those grueling miles more bearable – and what better setting than a beautiful fall evening among the famous glittering lights of Las Vegas?

On November 17, the renowned Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon returns to Sin City and courtesy of MGM Resorts International, runners can enjoy a variety of pre- and post-run experiences. From carb loading and stretching the day before to relaxing in a luxurious spa after, race activities extend well beyond those 26.2 miles.

Where to Stay
Proper rest is essential to overall well-being and guests can guarantee a good night’s sleep in a Stay Well RoomS at MGM Grand which features 17 health and wellness elements throughout each room. Blissful slumber is promised through EMF protection that shields guests from sleep-disruptive electromagnetic fields and black-out shades that block outdoor lighting. The LED dawn simulator alarm clock awakens the body gradually to eliminate grogginess on race day and the air purification system will keep racer’s lungs ready by reducing allergens, toxins and pathogens. When it’s time to clean up post-race, the Vitamin C infused shower promotes healthy hair and skin, leaving guests feeling rejuvenated.

Where to Prep
Yoga can be a great addition to any athlete’s training regimen and thanks to Vdara Hotel & Spa in partnership with Lululemon, runners can strike a pose with The Official Rock ‘n’ Roll Pre-Race Yoga Session, an outdoor event that will leave participants feeling relaxed, flexible and mentally ready for Sunday’s arduous trek. Beginning at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Nov.16, anyone interested is invited to Vdara’s pool deck for a one-hour Vinyasa Flow yoga class tailored for runners but open to all fitness levels. Healthy snacks and refreshments will be available along with live music. Interested participants are encouraged to RSVP at  http://twtvite.com/yogarunvegas – reservations are not mandatory. Admission is free, but space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Athletes know that eating properly is integral to optimum performance and The Mirage Hotel & Casinowill offer the fuel runners need to keep their bodies working like well-oiled machines. California Pizza Kitchen, Carnegie Deli and BLT Burger will feature runner’s menus or participants can enjoy 50 percent off Cravings Buffet November 16 – 18 with their marathon credentials.

The Official Rock ‘n’ Roll Pasta Party at The Mirage will allow racers to “carb up” the evening prior to the marathon, ensuring they have the energy to get them through the race. On Saturday, Nov. 16, the feast will feature eight double-sided buffets of runner-friendly food such as salad, whole grain rolls and pasta, including gluten-free options, that can be topped with a choice of meat and/or vegan sauces. Rounding out the dinner with live music, The Mirage hopes to provide an evening that will satisfy the body, mind and soul. The event will be hosted in The Mirage Event Center and tickets can be purchased for $30 by visiting the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon website.

The Pre-Race Brunch, also in The Mirage Event Center, is a competitor-approved gourmet meal that ensures the body is properly nourished all the way to the finish line. Starting at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 17, runners can enjoy entertainment with friends and family before taking on the Las Vegas Strip that night. Tickets must be picked up at the Pasta Party/Brunch booth at the Health & Fitness Expo on Friday or Saturday of race weekend.

Where to Revitalize
After a rewarding, albeit exhausting journey through Las Vegas, there is no better way to decompress and begin healing than with a relaxing spa experience.

Spa Bellagio will stay open until midnight so competitors can head straight to the massage room or wet areas to begin the recovery. Racers can benefit from a 50-minute Marathon Custom Massage ($160), a personalized session that combines pressure and technique, or a 20-minute Mini-Marathon Refresher Massage ($85) which focuses only on the areas that need rejuvenation. The 80-minute Athlete Revival ($250) is a custom sports treatment that combines stretching and massage to all major muscle groups followed by a Cryoderm gel application that soothes and calms tissue. Spa Bellagio also will offer race day spa passes for $50 or a three-day pass for $70.

The Mirage Spa will feature special treatments for marathon participants November 16 -18. The Runner’s Relief Pedicure ($80) soothes tired soles with a ginger salt soak while the Glute Fatigue Massage ($80 for 25 minutes or $130 for 50 minutes) stretches and targets exhausted extremities. Runners also can opt for the Muscle Marathon Meltdown ($260) – a 110-minute treatment available for those requiring a little extra TLC.

ASICS + Christina Applegate Breast Cancer Awareness Collection

With Breast Cancer Awareness month right around the corner, ASICS America has once again joined forces with Christina Applegate to launch a pink collection in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, including the brand’s most popular footwear and apparel items in the eye-catching bright pink.

Thanks in part to a successful partnership with ASICS America last October, Right Action for Women increased its assistance for MRI screenings six-fold from 2011 to 2012. Christina is thrilled to be a part of this year’s program again and to partner with ASICS to continue her reach. After receiving her own breast cancer diagnosis in 2008, she created Right Action for Women to educate women and encourage them to talk to their doctors about appropriate screening.

For the 2013 Breast Cancer Awareness Collection, ASICS has revamped its products, offering the latest GT-1000™ 2 performance running sneaker for men, women and children in an electric pink color. The collection also includes the ASICS The Smuggler™ Sports Bra and ASICS Pink Ribbon Nimbus Classic LC sock.

ASICS has guaranteed a minimum donation of $100,000 (and up to $125,000) to Right Action for Women from the specially marked products now available at retail stores nationwide and at http://www.asicsamerica.com.

Loved Vegas Teacher, Mark Balfe-Taylor, Launches Hot Yoga Revitalized Complete with Teacher Trainings and Yoga in the Park

Loved Vegas Teacher, Mark Balfe-Taylor, Launches Hot Yoga Revitalized Complete with Teacher Trainings and Yoga in the Park

 

FingerStand

A few months ago, we shared our experience taking a new hot yoga class that made us move in new and unpredictable ways called Revitalize, which was created by one of Las Vegas’ most popular teachers, Mark Balfe-Taylor. Mark has been teaching yoga and teaching yoga teachers for many years and is known for his unique, educational and motivational style, as well as his charming British accent. Since he’s the creator of Revitalize, which was mentioned in the Yoga Journal, and several other equally loved contemporary hot yoga sequences, it’s not a shocker that Mark has opened his own business called Hot Yoga Revitalized and has a new home studio at the premier place for teachers in town – Sherry Goldstein’s Yoga Sanctuary. Mark is teaching several classes at both Sanctuary locations and some have a special promotional price of only $10! Definitely something we will be checking out! In addition to Revitalize, Mark will be teaching his signature yin class that has people following him to parks around the city for a free class. Did we mention he is doing free yoga in the park too! If you live in Centennial Hills, Summerlin or the Southwest area, be sure to check one of these classes out. But even more exciting, Mark and the team at Hot Yoga Revitalized are planning several teacher trainings in the coming year. They have E-RYT 200 yoga trainings planned for Mexico and Australia at the beginning of the year, and later next year a yoga retreat in Panama where you can enjoy two classes a day while surrounded by a tropical paradise. Mark says he picked Panama because it’s a hidden gem and airline tickets are surprisingly cheap. Good thinking, Mark. We are already dreaming of sun salutations on the beach.

Be sure to check out Mark’s new site, HotYogaRevitalized.com to learn when he is teaching at The Yoga Sanctuary, in the park and when his hot yoga teacher trainings are planned.
