AlterCenter is an alternative fitness center dedicated to helping drive consistent change & progress in our students' lives. To that end, we offer private, semi-private, and small group training, so that our students always have direct access to our expertise, and we have the space to work with each person individually.
We're interested in working with people who are willing to train consistently, and who are willing to learn - as opposed to just being led through exercise.
How you engage with us depends upon your goals, experience, and lifestyle. You can focus on one track of development, or create variety across disciplines in your training schedule. We offer training in the following categories and disciplines:
+ Explorer :: hiking, running, climbing, general mobility training & bodyweight conditioning
+ Warrior :: Muay Thai kickboxing, Russian Combat Systema, advanced strength & conditioning
+ Artist :: pilates & dance training
+ Maker :: yoga, meditation, nutrition & cooking
A weekly supply of fresh living foods with recipes to help you make the most of them.
Living foods are the foundation of the Alter diet. Fresh, local, seasonal, organic foods nourish a healthy gastrointestinal tract and immune system; support adaptation to place (environment) and time (season); and promote greater life force/ vital energy.
AlterCenter is a San Francisco pick-up location for Tara Firma Farms' CSA boxes, which include pastured meat & eggs. Learn more about Tara's commitment to the health of the animals, the environment, and her CSA members on their website. Sign up directly with Tara Firma to start receiving their boxes on the second Thursday of each month.
On the fourth Friday of each month, join us for Healthy/Happy Hour, where we'll discuss nutrition and review cooking techniques that make it easy to stay on track, while enjoying fresh juices and healthy snacks.
The far-infrared sauna can be beneficial for exercise recovery, detoxification, increasing circulation and reducing inflammation. Sessions of 20-45 minutes in length can stand alone, or be contiguous with bodywork, yoga, or other exercise.
