Lindsay Gitlitz | SWEAT Personal TrainerABOUT LINDSAY:
I live my life with focus and intention to feel good. My choices revolve around my health and maintaining a quality of life that allows me to enjoy all of its sweetness.  You’ll sweat! And hopefully leaving class with a more attuned sense of your own body and how to serve it well.  I’m not naturally flexible, so yoga felt like a journey that could last me a lifetime.  I like to think of diet and exercise as part of a maintainable lifestyle, so when I found yoga, I knew I was hooked.  I set an intention for my practice, make it time for myself above anything else.  I remind students throughout classes to tune in to what they need from their practice and encourage them to listen to the wisdom of their body.

Name and recipe of your favorite healthy meal / snack / drink: 

  • I love soup!!! In the winter nothing beats a hearty minestrone.  I get whatever veggies I have in the house (carrots, celery, onions, potatoes,  squash) and saute them progressively starting with those that take longest to cook. I slowly add veggie stock to create flavor and then add bowtie pasta, a can of tomatoes and some smashed up pinto beans.  It’s so amazing with some crusty bread for dipping.
