As the stress of COVID takes its toll on the physical and emotional well-being of everyone, the La Grange Business Association launches Free Wellness Week at nine local wellness businesses as a way to encourage people to try new activities, explore different fitness options and manage self-care.
From October 3 through 11, participants can take advantage of special, limited-time offers at a variety of businesses that can help improve physical, mental and emotional wellness. Want to get your sweat on at a free class? Get a stress assessment? Consult with a personal trainer? The free opportunities include both virtual and in-person classes, equipment, training consultations and screenings that cater to diverse needs and exercise preferences.
“As everyone knows, taking care of yourself at this time is crucial to your mental, physical and spiritual health,” said Dean Bissias, executive director of the Park District of La Grange, the sponsor of the event. The park district is inviting participants to virtually join one of six classes including yoga, barre and zumba classes during Free Wellness Week.
“This is a way for us to educate and inspire people by letting them sample a wide range of wellness opportunities that are available in our community, said Nancy Cummings, executive director of the La Grange Business Association. “It’s a great time to try some new options for free.”
Participating businesses are: Boyce Chiropractic, Club Pilates La Grange, ELLIPTIHIT, Energetic Intentions, EnergyGirl, Get in Shape for Women, Jackie Errico Fitness, Park District of La Grange and Sara Goggin Young, LLC. Offers and workout times vary and are subject to availability. Some restrictions, including reservations, may apply.
The membership organization of over 300 service businesses, restaurants, retailers and non-profit organizations strives to enhance the La Grange economy through networking opportunities, educational programs, special events and marketing initiatives.
