Residents will have the opportunity to check out the Sanibel Health Club and all it has to offer during its annual Wellness Event & Fitness Fair this weekend.

Sanibel Health Club General Manager Mantas Bilvinas said this is the third year they have held the Wellness Event & Fitness Fair as an effort to kick the year off the correct way. He said the event is a great way to spread information about the club and what it has to offer.

“It’s a nice way to start the season,” Bilvinas said.

This year the 3rd annual Wellness Event & Fitness Fair will be held from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 24, at Sanibel Health Club, 975 Rabbit Rd. The event will be jammed packed with free samples, refreshments, fitness evaluations, class demos and a silent auction.

Every year, Bilvinas said they have chosen a different organization as the beneficiary of the silent auction. The first year was J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge and last year was the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife. This year the auction will benefit The Robert V. & Benjamin G. Miller Fund, an organization that provides camping experiences for special needs adults in Southwest Florida.

He said they chose the organization because it recently moved to Southwest Florida.

The afternoon will be full of numerous presentations from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. In addition to the club, Sanibel Skin Spa, Sanibel Dance, Sanibel Pilates and Yoga, Island Ballroom and Tony DiCosta Fitness are also participating in the Wellness Event & Health Fair.

A yoga and aerial yoga demo will take place from 12 p.m. to 12:30 p.m.; Island Ballroom Dancing demo will be held from 12:30 p.m. to 1 p.m.; pilates and pilates reformer demo from 1 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.; personal strength training principals from 1:30 p.m. to 2 p.m.; free samples and chair massage from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. and from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. complimentary services from Sanibel Skin Spa, T4 and H Skincare guest speaker Helena Armour. The two hours will include thai massage, skin peels and consultation, as well as therapeutic massage and food ritual.

Every year, Bilvinas said the attendance improves, as well as their membership, since new ownership took over three years ago.
