UnityPoint Health – Grinnell and Hotel Grinnell Host Annual Winter Wellness Getaway


— Recharge, Refresh and Focus on Your Health and Well-Being–

Everyone deserves some time to recharge and refresh – especially you. UnityPoint Health® – Grinnell Regional Medical Center (GRMC) is partnering with Hotel Grinnell to host the second annual Winter Wellness Getaway on February 15, 2020. This one-day event will leave you feeling rejuvenated and ready to take on your 2020 goals.

“I am excited for the Winter Wellness Getaway in Grinnell. The amount of expertise that will be brought to this event is top notch,” says Megan Jensen, wellness specialist and personal trainer at GRMC. “The Getaway is a time to step away from your busy schedule, relax and to really focus on being the best version of you. All ages are encouraged to attend to take the next step in their health journey.”

Saving money and losing weight were the two most popular New Year’s resolutions of 2018, and they’re great goals, but only 8 percent of people follow through on their New Year’s resolutions. The Winter Wellness Getaway is an opportunity to set yourself up for success to have 2020 be your year, a year for growth and change.

Throughout the day there will be various classes that focus on all areas including your physical health and overall well-being.  

“The day can be as relaxed or as robust as you want it to be. When you register online you have the opportunity to select the classes that will work best for you,” says Jensen.

All classes will be held at the Paul W. Ahrens Fitness Center – 807 Broad Street, Grinnell or Hotel Grinnell – 925 Park Street, Grinnell and are led by trained professionals. Sign up for one of your favorites or try something new. Fitness classes include Pilates, Vinyasa Yoga, Tai Chi, Kettlebell Kraze, Boats and Ropes (conditioning), Spin-Hills and Thrills, Roll and Revitalize, Z-Health, On the Run and Self Defense. Give your body a break and exercise your mind with classes to benefit your overall well-being including various CPR certifications, Essential Oils, Positive Intent, Meditation, Healthy Cooking and Financial Wellness. 

End the day with a delicious dinner at historic Hotel Grinnell and be inspired by guest speaker Loran Storts. Storts has coached athletes ages 5 to 65 with various fitness levels to reach their personal fitness goals. He is currently the head coach for the Dowling Catholic Girls Cross Country team and is a Drake Relays champion, six-time NCAA national qualifier in Track and Cross Country, nine-time Ironman Finisher with various other accolades.
