Crow Wing Energized is hosting the fourth Annual Crow Wing Energized Health & Wellness Summit May 19.
The theme of this year's free Health and Wellness Summit is Celebrate Lifestyle Change. The summit is 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Lakewood Evangelical Free Church, 6284 Fairview Road, Baxter.
"Change is hard, but knowledge and support give you power! During this half day event we will celebrate the individuals and groups who are helping others make changes for good health," Crow Wing Energized reported in a news release. "The summit will have speakers and a gift to inspire or reignite you on this journey including a copy of the book 'Secrets from the Eating Lab' written by our keynote speaker Traci Mann."
Mann has a doctorate and is a psychology professor at the University of Minnesota. Her work is described as debunking the mystery of successful lifestyle change.
The event will also celebrate the hundreds of participants and coaches involved in lifestyle change classes hosted by Crow Wing Energized. Last year, the first time the classes were open to the general public, participants lost 3,112 pounds of body weight-about the weight of a small car. The losses came after 16-weeks where nearly 300 participants-in more than 40 classes-reported their results. They lost an average of 11 pounds or 5 percent of their body mass by increasing activity and being aware of what they were eating.
A second round of classes was started a few months ago.
Beyond the keynote address and success stories from those who were able to make a healthy change by focusing on healthy eating and activity, the session will include breakout informational sessions.
Participants will be provided with a continental breakfast and lunch.
Registration is requested.
