Fitness. Yoga. Mental health. Nutrition. Family time. Drug prevention. Screenings and checks. There are dozens of ways to keep your body and mind healthy. Luckily, Collingswood has made it easy and fun by rounding up more than 70 ways for you to be well in just one week. Collingswood offers a week's worth of fitness and whole health events.  All events are $5 or less and many are free.

“You could wake up every day of Wellness Week and try something new all day long,” said Collingswood Mayor James Maley. “It’s brings together everything. Doctors, experts, fitness – there’s something for everyone.”

Each weekday during wellness week a variety of classes and events are scheduled for free or minimal cost. Offerings range from screenings and wellness checks, group activities like community biking, fitness classes and seminars from doctors and experts. Each weeknight will also have a “featured event” at the Community Center at 6:30 p.m. – a free, community style class on a broad range of topics. 

Past Featured events for Wellness Week include (all featured event at the Community Center and free):
MONDAY, APRIL 6: Budget Friendly Food Choices and Meal Prep seminar from Lisa Bellia - Integrative Health Coach

Each weekday has roughly ten offerings.  A full list of events each day is at http://www.collingswood.com/things_to_do/arts_and_events/wellness_week.php.

Wellness Week will culminate with a “Community Day” at Knight Park. The P.E.-style day invites citizens to take part in community challenges and activities like a Firefighter’s Challenge hosted by the Fire Department, tug-of-war against local police officers, kids’ obstacle courses, active games, a community sun salutation and enjoy healthy snacks.
