Ravenna, NE, January 18, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Ravenna Wellness Center which opened just a short 6 months ago at 313 Grand Avenue in Ravenna, Nebraska has already made a lasting impact on the small community. In this short period of time, the opening of the center brought four jobs to the community, as well as providing support and services for the fourty-eight current members. While this facility boasts about being open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, they are currently staffed during the busy parts of the day while allowing their members to access the facility through an electronic key system when not staffed. Hiring staff that work in the same community in which they live is an important component to the center owner, Jennifer Sherman, PA-C.
When asked about the wellness center, Jennifer stated, "The goal is to build a stronger community by bringing jobs to the area, raising money and doing community activities that give back to Ravenna's local population." So just what services and products do they offer? Wellness Director, Natasha Solario feels it is important for people to realize that they are not just a gym. "We have an infrared sauna, tanning bed, spray tanning, relaxation room, massage, counseling, health coaching, meal planning, gymnastics, group fitness, personal training, and so many wellness products that there is something for everyone here."
Ravenna Wellness Center currently reports their most successful program to date is their Senior Flex Group Fitness. Senior Flex is a program that is for 60 years and older population which incorporates cardio, stretching, strength, balance, and posture. For just $30 a month, a senior citizen gets 24/7 access, Senior Flex classes, infrared sauna, and tanning services plus free coffee, tea or cider. December client of the month, Darlene Veit stated she loves starting her day at the center. "I just love that I feel better, not as stiff, and I love the company while interacting with the group."
Since opening in July 2017, Ravenna Wellness Center participants have donated over 20 winter coats, hats, and mittens in a coat drive. They have donated over $300 in food items to the local food panty as well as raised over $300 plus toy donations for the Santa Riders to distribute to the town's children for Christmas. "Wellness is about finding an optimal balance between fitness, eating, stress, sleep, relationships, and finances," stated Jennifer. "It just makes sense to give back to the community that supports my business."
