More on the Mindful Health Initiative
Sal Salas, RPHF Owner and Trainer
Why I chose the Mindful Health Initiative and Youth Sports
Mindful Health Initiative was a natural choice for me as the beneficiary of our upcoming in-house CrossFit competition. I wanted an organization that both encourages and financially supports, children to participate in youth sports. Growing up, my parents had limited funds. I didn't have any opportunities to be a part of a team or any organized athletics. Unfortunately, this just wasn't in the cards for me. In Mexico, where I spent a lot of time with my dad and his family, everyone played soccer. However, at home in San Diego, we couldn't afford the youth league. My uncle also played football and I became a die-hard Chargers fan, but Pop Warner, with all of the equipment fees, was just too expensive. The Mindful Health Initiative, just like RPHF, is just starting out in Reno and they have the same kind of passion for their work regarding the physical and mental well being of youth in at-risk populations that I do in bringing more fitness into the daily lives of our members. Mindful Health is not a large corporation, but a small local group. We know the funds are going to benefit children here who are in need and who can hopefully participate in some of the sports I never got the chance to. I am excited to bring this organization into our gym while helping them in their mission of supporting local children while also promoting fitness among our CrossFit community!
