Do you know your numbers? We offer periodic health screenings for a $15.00 fee that includes blood pressure check, resting heart rate, waist circumference, BMI, body fat, and a finger stick test for total cholesterol, blood glucose, HDL and LDL. Dates for upcoming screenings are advertised in the Lane Weekly, the Undress the Stress Newsletter, and Wellness term schedules.
Nordic Walking Poles Available for Independent Use
Get more out of your walking by using Nordic Walking Poles. These poles increase heart rate, oxygen consumption and caloric expenditure as compared to traditional walking. In addition to working leg muscles, walking with poles also engages the abs, arms, shoulders, upper chest and back muscles. The poles provide additional stability and help reduce stress in the knees and other joints. Nordic walking poles are available for LCC employees to check out for use. Please note: If you have never used Nordic Walking poles before, contact Wendy to set up a brief orientation on how to use the poles and for sizing. If you have questions, contact Wendy at (541) 463-5551. Learn more about Nordic Walking-information, how-to videos, research and more.

Meet with Wendy Simmons to facilitate and empower yourself to achieve your goals related to health and wellness. Wendy will help you mobilize your internal strengths and give you external resources for sustainable change. Wellness Coaching is about unlocking your potential to maximize their own performance. It's assisting you to learn rather than teaching you as a facilitation approach.
