This month we are introducing a new webinar series that is free to MINT members! MINT Fresh Facts webinars will be led by one of our incredible and talented instructors or personal trainers. We are so excited to have the opportunity to connect with you outside of class.
Each webinar will be 50 minutes and hosted via Zoom. Just like class, we ask that you register for the webinar ahead of time. Members will be able to register one (non-MINT member) guest for free as an added bonus.

Topic: The Science of Happiness during Social Distancing
Host: Laura Trejo
Research indicates that your happiness is determined by three factors – 50% is from genetics, 40% is from your daily thoughts and intentional actions, and the remaining 10% is determined by your life circumstances. This webinar will explore how you can harness the intentional acts and daily thoughts that are in your control to help boost your happiness. Laura will lead you in Metta meditation to alleviate the effects of social distancing. At the end, we will provide a handout with suggested books, podcasts, websites, documentaries, and apps to help further develop your understanding of happiness.
