Sessions pair relevant information with enjoyable activity
Bellin for Women members are invited to gain valuable health and wellbeing insights while having a great time during the following March events in the Green Bay area:
Screening Screen Time
5:30-7 p.m. Thursday, March 7, Green Bay Botanical Garden, 2600 Larsen Road
Every family is different when it comes to the hot-button issue of screen time. This event will help attendees thoughtfully structure their kids’ screen time, covering topics like setting age-appropriate limits, being flexible in special circumstances, setting good examples and providing non-smart device hobbies the whole family can enjoy. Bellin mental health therapist Pamela Baranczyk will guide this informative group discussion before attendees get their hands dirty with a new hobby – gardening. The evening will conclude with a seed-starting workshop led by a Green Bay Botanical Garden horticulturalist.
Navigating the Gym
5:30-7:30 p.m. Monday, March 18, Bellin Health Bellevue, 3263 Eaton Road
Group fitness classes and elliptical machines are great, but branching out to hit the gym floor solo can be downright intimidating. In this Bellin personal trainer-led event, attendees will learn about gym etiquette and gym floor layout before breaking into groups for a 40-minute workout that puts their new knowledge into practice. The event is designed for all ages and fitness levels, and attendees are reminded to wear appropriate workout gear and shoes.
Beating the Bellin Run
5:30-7 p.m. Thursday, March 28, Bellin Health Titletown, 1970 S. Ridge Road
Attendees of all ages and fitness levels will learn how to set and attain goals for this year’s Bellin Run. Participants will get time-honored 10K tips and tricks from running expert Nate Vandervest before grabbing a healthy pre-run snack and embarking on an all-abilities outdoor group run. Attendees are reminded to wear appropriate outdoor workout gear and shoes.
“These fun and educational events help our members tackle relevant topics and learn valuable skills that have bearing on their everyday lives,” said Megan Lehmann, Bellin Health Event and Community Outreach Specialist. “Combining practical information with an enjoyable activity is the perfect recipe for an evening out, whether you’re enjoying some solo ‘you time’ or hanging with the girls.”
