Wellness Works Events


Center for Health and Wellness Holiday Special
, runs through February 28.  Join the Center for Health and Wellness with only a $10.00 joining fee!  Membership includes:  Group Fitness Classes, Aquafit Classes, Equipment for Cardio and Strength Training, Half Court Gymnasium, Exercise / Lap Pool, Health Assessment, Exercise Prescription and access to health promotion programs and classes.


Nutrition Talk:  Eating to Boost Energy, January 19 at 9:00 am at the Center for Health and Wellness.  Entering the winter months and the hustle and bustle of holidays, it may seem that there is not enough time to get adequate sleep.  An occasional late night movie with the kids may not be detrimental, but consistently not getting a full night's rest can negatively impact your overall health.  We will be focusing on how sleep deprivation can affect your metabolism.  We will also look at foods proven to help you sleep.


Freedom From Smoking Class, January 2 at 5:30 PM at the MCCH Center for Health and Wellness, 716 Poplar Street, Murray, KY.  This FREE, 8 session program is brought to you by the Calloway-County Health Department and classes are led by an American Lung Association-trained facilitator in a small group setting.  PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.  Call 270.753.3381 to reserve your spot.
