Yesterday I was able to participate in an event north of Boston and let me tell you, it was amazing! The event was the Health and Wellness Fall 2017 Show and there was all types of organizations there. From meditation and relaxation, to nutrition and healthy eating to physical fitness. Each organization had something different to offer and although I was there representing Just Live Mindfully, I got a chance to interact with a few. There were that stood out for me and I wanted to showcase them today.
The first was my neighbor – Wicked Healthy Vending. They are exactly what the name says, healthier options offered in a vending machine. So cool, right? I think their concept is great because when you’re on the go, you want something quick and is easy to access but sometimes, healthier options aren’t always available. That’s where Wicked Healthy Vending comes in. They offer both beverages and snacks and at yesterday’s event had some of my favorites! Think Simply Lemonade, Polar Seltzer, Clif Bars, Kind Bars and Food Should Taste Good products. Tina, the founder and CEO was so kind and you could tell genuinely loved being able to offer healthier options to people on the go. They’re already in a number of corporations and growing. If you’re in the market for this kind of service, I would highly recommend Tina and her team.
Next, I connected with a couple of lovely ladies from Curves in Topsfield, MA. Karen and Meg were terrific! Full of energy and you could tell they loved what they did! If you don’t know about Curves, let me tell you about it. Curves is a a place to get in a quick 30-minute workout that involves cardio and strength training. I used to go to a Curves with my mom and honestly loved it! Keep in mind, that was years ago! But today they’re so much more than just the 30-minute workout. Curves has classes from Jillian Michaels to boxing to balance and even more. And I love the fact that Curves is specifically designed for women of any age and any body size. You can feel comfortable at Curves because of the support system that you can sense the minute you walk in the door. I can attest to that…especially after meeting Karen and Meg. If you’re looking for a gym that can give you a complete solution, and live in the Topsfield area, definitely check Curves out.
The third company I had a chance to interact with was LizzyJays. They offer a variety of cold pressed juices and cleanses.
If you haven’t had a cold pressed juice, you really don’t know what you’re missing. It’s a great way to get in your veggies without having to eat a ton of food. I personally love to get my veggies in this way and I find when I have a cold pressed juice, almost immediately I find a surge in energy. It’s amazing! I was able to meet Steve, the VP of Sales, and was able to taste the Crisp Greens. It was delicious and Steve was great in explaining the story behind the company. Having found there weren’t many options available to eat and drink raw, live-energy foods, the founder Casey Sabol, began juicing. While juicing is becoming more and more mainstream, the quality of ingredients is what’s important. My favorite part is that LizzyJays even ships direct to you! For me, that’s a win-win! Definitely check them out and see what juicing can do for you!
These three weren’t the only vendors at the Health and Wellness Fall 2017 Show yesterday, but they were the three that I connected with. And that connection is what’s important at these types of events. Each person’s health and wellness journey is different and unique and as such, you have to seek out the companies that will work for you.
If you were at the Show yesterday, I’d love to hear about your experience! What companies did you stop by? What was your biggest takeaway? And what actions do you plan to put into play for your health and wellness journey?
