Class Preview: Nutritional Strategies for Detoxification

Did you know that each year over 4 billion pounds of toxic chemicals are released into the environment by industry, and over 1.2 billion pounds of pesticides are used in the United States alone?

It's impossible to avoid exposure to toxins at some level but it’s important to know that over time, an accumulation of toxins can reduce energy levels, and negatively impact immune, neurological, and overall health. To make matters worse, it has become increasingly difficult to consume an adequate amount of the essential nutrition that your body requires to detoxify these environmental assaults on the body.

What are consumers to do? With misinformation about detoxification bombarding us, and thousands of useless products on the market, it’s easy to get confused.

Join Dr. Tracie Fowler, D.C. of Horizon Family Chiropractic, and learn how your body's detoxification mechanisms work, identify safe and unsafe detoxification strategies, the lifestyle changes that can support your body's natural detoxification process, and specialized nutritional support to enhance your detoxification capacity!

Class Preview: Where Did My Passions Go?

You once had dreams, goals, a vision for your life. But where did those passions go?

If you’re like many women you haven’t thought about them in years. And why would you, thinking about unfulfilled goals just makes the pain of never realizing them that much more intense.

Join Kim Beebe, of Soulspring Empowerment Groups for Women, where she will reveal…

~What living a passion-filled life has to do with wellness
~The 3-Step Passion Process to revitalize your long-forgotten dreams and goals
~The secret “passion killers” that everyone must face

If you feel like there’s something missing from your life, like there must be more, this session is for you! Get ready to revive your life-long dreams and live life richer and more empowered than you ever imagined was possible!

Vendor Spotlight: Soulspring Groups

Do you feel that yearning within you; the tug on your heartstring, urging you to be more? We thought so. You see, women have a deep desire to seek out their passion and divine assignment for living. We have desires, dreams and goals but often are lacking the confidence, or are too busy or afraid, to pursue them. Take a minute to watch this video and see if you don't agree.

At Soulspring Groups our mission is to provide an avenue of support and inspiration; a network of confidantes and empowerment tools, that when combined, provide the motivation you’ve been looking for to bring your passions to the surface!

So, what is a Soulspring Group? As women, instinct tells us that connecting with other women is key to clarifying our life’s direction. We are after all, creatures of the spoken word. Imagine harnessing what comes so natural to us, to empower ourselves to be, do and give more!

Soulspring Groups are small groups of women, usually 8-12 in size, of different ages, backgrounds, and experiences, who meet monthly for the purpose of learning, teaching, supporting and empowering. This is not your typical motivational seminar, nor is this a networking group or book club. This is a personal coaching experience like no other.

Your Soulspring membership grants you access to our member’s only website and a variety of unique and valuable support and learning tools and resources. By following our curriculum, or a unique development plan based on the interests of your group, each meeting takes you closer to realizing your life purpose, dreams and goals.

We have empowerment meetings taking place monthly in living rooms, community centers, restaurants and conference rooms! The benefits of this unique approach include new levels of personal empowerment and confidence and heightened levels of knowledge and awareness in a trusting, non-competitive, small group setting.

We look forward to meeting you all at Living Well and sharing more about this unique personal development opportunity! Please stop by our booth where we’ll be helping attendees create a tangible reminder of their passion that they can take anywhere! You won’t want to leave this event without your very own "Empoword to Go"!

Class Preview: Here Comes the Sun

As you are seeing, we have a wide variety of vendors and workshops planned for our November 5 event! A highlight of the evening will surely be Dr. Amy Schreiner, founder of Horizon Family Chiropractic. An active advocate for the health of women and children, Dr. Amy is often found sharing her wellness vision with local women’s groups, businesses and civic organizations. At this year’s Living Well event, attendees can experience her powerful and uplifting workshop, “Here Comes the Sun”.

“It’s never too late to start.” How many times have we all heard that, yet how many times do we actually believe it and begin? Well, this is your chance. Dr. Amy Schreiner of Horizon Family Chiropractic is excited to present an overview of the benefits of healthy living starting from the very first days of your life. Ask anyone of an older generation and they will confirm what Dr. Amy sees all too often. People tend to spend the first 40 years of their life planning to do something about their health, and the last 40 years wishing they would have.

Don’t let this be you! Everyone deserves to be healthy and vibrant, so why not start sooner than later. Join us for this inspiring presentation and find out how you can start you and your entire family off on a journey to wellness!

Vendor Spotlight: Curves for Women

Women are in search of a time-efficient workout that is convenient, customized and achieves results. The Curves 30-minute Complete Workout provides the solution! Our hydraulic resistance strength training machines allow you to perform cardiovascular and strength training at the same time. Curves helps you achieve your individual fitness goals, while burning up to 500 calories per workout and overloading every major muscle group. For 30 minutes you move around the circuit, changing stations every 30 seconds. You don’t need to rush to a specific class or worry about a time schedule. When you show up your individualized workout begins. Just jump in anywhere you see an open station and move at the same time and in the same direction as everyone else. In just 30 minutes, you can accomplish a total body workout, while accomplishing your fitness goals and achieving results.

HYDRAULIC RESISTANCE The unique features of hydraulic resistance make it possible to perform strength and cardiovascular training at the same time. With hydraulic resistance exercise, you are moving fluid. This is similar to aquatic exercise and is inherently safe and effective for all ages and fitness levels. There are no weight stacks to manage or repetitions to count. In conventional gyms, up to 85 percent of injuries occur during the eccentric contraction (the lowering of the weight). With a double positive workout, you never lower the weight: you push and pull. You push forward with one muscle group and pull back with the opposing muscle group. This intensity easily elevates and sustains your target hear rate. By working muscle groups that oppose each other, you also work muscles symmetrically or in balance. This aligns the muscular-skeletal system to improve functional posture and movement. Several of our machines are single positive and work in only one direction to effectively target specific muscle groups.

Research shows that combining strength training at Curves with a high protein diet and the right types of carbohydrates results in 95% of the weight loss coming from fat. Join us for a FREE Weight Management Class. Call us at 715.425.2242 for times and dates. We look forward to continuing our mission to STRENGTHEN WOMEN OF OUR COMMUNITY.

Class Preview: Strong and Healthy YOU: Lose Fat, Not Muscle!

FACT: 50% of American women, ages 20-74, are overweight or obese.

Chances are that you will struggle with weight gain at some point in your life. Join Dr. Tracie Fowler, of Horizon Family Chiropractic, and find out why healthy Body Composition is so much more important to overall health than weight loss. This information packed session will enlighten you on the following key healthy weight loss strategies:

  • Calculate your BMI (Body Mass Index) and learn how BMI impacts your health

  • Discover how a high BMI can result in constant feelings of fatigue

  • Learn why dangerous over the counter "ultra" diet shakes and bars can be dangerous

Dieting the wrong way can make you fatter in the end and have negative effects on cardiovascular health, blood sugar handling, energy levels, mood, and even hormone levels. Leave this session with the top three healthy BMI strategies and your own custom step-by-step plan to a Strong and Healthy YOU!

Vendor Spotlight: Lady Katherine

Lady Katherine is a women’s pole fitness studio located in Hudson, Wisconsin. We offer a variety of weekly fitness classes for all fitness levels including: Abs & Booty, Body Booty Camp, Chair Dance, Pole Dance, and Signature (exotic dance movements).

We also do Private Pole Dance Parties to celebrate your special event. Our parties are an affordable, safe, and incredibly fun way to create memories around a birthday, bachelorette party, or girls night out event.

We are excited to a participant in the Living Well Encounter. When you visit our display you will have the opportunity to view our studio through the eyes of KARE 11 Sports Anchor Eric Perkins, when he filmed one of his infamous “Perk at Play” news spots at Lady Katherine. We invite you to register to win one of five free classes to be given away and we will have a sampling of our “dance shoes” too. Yes, you CAN dance in 6 ¾” platforms!

Join us for our class where we will be demonstrating and inviting you to join in some feminine movement* exercises. We will do hip circles, catcher’s circles, body waves, and figure 8s. We will also introduce you to the ‘sassy walk’ and the ‘long way home’ walk - essential for every woman repertoire. These types of movements are the natural way our female bodies are designed to move. And besides producing firming, toning, strengthening results on the outside they also activate your internal body systems. This brings your digestive, reproductive, and endocrine systems to a higher level of healthy functioning. This produces benefits such as less PMS and related symptoms, a higher functioning metabolism (which equals more calorie burning!), fewer digestive issues, more flexibility, and range of motion in your spinal area. These movements also shape up your attitude!

Bring your sassy attitude and sense of adventure and join us at the Lady Katherine table. See you there!

*feminine movement is a term that we created to describe the natural, circular, flowing nature that a woman’s body is designed to move in. We choose to use this term vs. the term ’exotic’ dance which often has degrading or negative connotations.
