Mem-bru-ary: n. The second calendar month of the year; ASCEND’s Member Appreciation Month.
February is MEMBRUARY! We are so thankful for your patience throughout the holidays, competition closures, and all the other irregular hubbub we throw your way. ASCEND Members are resilient, but that doesn't mean you can't be pampered still, right?! All month long, each day will offer up a member perk for you to enjoy. Take a look below and plan your visits accordingly!
DAILY PERKS: Each day there is something, be it a snack/peice of candy, a free guest pass, or a discount in the retail shop. Take a look at the daily perks!
PHOTOGRAPHY SESSIONS: Take a look at THIS LIST, note your preferred location, and visit the photographer's table during their block to get your personal photoshoot! We'll be adding to this list a bit, so check back often. Photos will be delivered to you via email sometime after your shoot, but it may take a fews days/weeks in some cases, so please be patient!
MASSAGES: Loosen up with a FREE 10 minute massage! You must be present to put your name on the list and space will be limited.ASCEND South SideThursdays 2/9 + 2/23From 5-7pServices provided by Sarah PaladinASCEND Point BreezeWednesdays 2/8 + 2/22From 5-7pServices provided by Ru EmmonsASCEND YoungtownTBA
MOBILE SAUNA: Courtesy of Warm Timber, we'll be offering some special evenings where you can step into a cozy sauna to decompress for a bit. Your time in the sauna will be limited to 15 minutes to allow for more guests to enjoy this exciting perk. The sauna holds 4-6 people at a time. You must be present to put your name on the list and space will be limited. If there is a lower turnout for these events, you may get to go again or stay in for longer than 15 minutes.

The health benefits of safe cold exposure are numerous and growing with continued research. We prioritize mental health by safely exploring your nervous system’s reactive state and in this exploration you have an opportunity to become calm in the chaos. As Wim Hof says, “your brain has the power to modify your pain perception.”
We hope that you enjoy these small tokens of our appreciation for choosing ASCEND.
