Healthy Hour with GOOD SF
Tuesday, July 9, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
“Hey, want to do something tonight?“
“Sorry... I’m busy saving the world with bike-powered electric systems, and then going to a happy hour to meet my future cofounder, funder, and significant other. Maybe after I’ll hike up Mount Tam before visiting the latest bar, restaurant and gallery opening.”
This conversation probably sounds a little bit familiar, right? We San Franciscans are constantly on-the-go, rushing from one activity to another; most of us don't take nearly enough time to stop and re-energize. So why not give yourself a moment to reload and maybe even make a new friend along the way?
GOOD SF invites you to take a break from the bustle for a healthy hour – an evening to recharge and reconnect with San Francisco locals over trivia, exercise, and healthy snacks and beverages. After all, in the words of Oprah, "the more whole and healthy you are, the more fully you can give to other people".
6:00-6:30pm: Meet and greet - Come and meet the locals, GOOD SF is a community full of awesome people - stop by and say hello!
6:30-7:00pm: Team Trivia - Health-related trivia to get the mind moving! Are you a trivia champ? There will be great prizes from Kitchit and Calvin Klein Performance for the winners - so bring your best game.
7:00-8:00pm: Healthy Hour - After we've worked the mind, it's time to work the body. Healthy Hour will kick off with a 30-minute full-body exercise routine that you can use at the office or home to help recharge. We will wrap up by busting myths about common "healthy" practices and understanding how we as individuals can be catalysts to improve public health (sample topics: "How much is too much sitting?", "What is the best way to lose (or maintain) weight? Dieting or exercising?", "What is costing more lives today, world hunger or global obesity?")
So grab something comfy to wear (this healthy hour will get your moving) and prepare for full a mind and body reload!
All participants will also leave with a gift bag of tips to incorporate movement into your daily lives and healthy snack suggestions and samples. You will also receive 20% off full-priced items at Calvin Klein Performance that day.
We look forward to seeing you there!
