Healthy Snack Tip

Snack Time: 10 am or 3 pm

  • 2 celery sticks
  • 1 tbsp of peanut butter

Note:

Benefits of

Celery: Actually celery is one of the most alkaline foods you can eat! Research suggests that an alkaline diet lengthens life and prevents chronic diseases. Celery juice is highly nutritious. Celery is loaded with essential minerals and vitamins such as folate, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin K and vitamin C. (Gabrielle, 2020)

Peanut Butter: Jump to Potential Health Benefits of Peanut Butter — Improved Heart Health One of the main fats in peanut butter is oleic acid. When substituted for other fats in your diet, oleic acid is shown to help maintain good cholesterol, blood sugar, and blood pressure. Managing these levels in your body can lower the risk of heart disease. Peanut butter also contains omega-6.

Hello Team,

I hope you all had a good weekend. Several things to go over in this email.

SCION Bags Discount

Central Florida Tri Club is excited to announce a partnership with SCICON Bags for the remainder of the 2020 and 2021 season. SCICON is a well established manufacture of bike flight travel bags that require minimal disassembly of the bike. Their Aerocomfort Triathlon 3.0 bag for example, all you have to do is to remove your wheels to pack your bike in the bag. Our partnership entails a massive 40%  discount that can be used at anytime throughout the year for their entire line up. However, though the end of June Scicon is offing our athletes 50% off only the Aerocomfort bag series or the EvolutionX hardcase, and will also be adding in a free Race Rain Bag, free hygiene bag, free passport wallet, and a free shoe bag (combined $310 value). The Rain Bag can be viewed here, the Hygiene bag here, the passport wallet here, and the shoe bag can be viewed here. In order to receive the extra discount and these free products however, you must email or call Peter directly in the sales department, let him know you are with Florida Central Tri, and he will help in processing your order. Soon after this deal is over, team members will have their own online code to use throughout the rest of the year for 40% off everything. Peter can be reached at peter@sciconbags.com or 760-788-7500 x215

After the month of October is over, I will be creating the general 40% off code for you to use for your team throughout the year. Please let me know and I look forward to working with you this year and next, stay sane in the meantime!
