Annual No Limits Week Shines Spotlight on Ability Awareness

(Green Bay, WI) No Limits Ability Awareness Week is back for its third year and has a busy line-up of activities ready to go. The week-long event runs July 23rd – 27th with programs and activities taking place throughout the Green Bay area.

No Limits is a collaborative campaign coordinated by the area’s largest disability service agencies: ASPIRO, CP and Curative Connections.

“One of the goals of No Limits Week is to show the community that having a disability isn’t a limitation to being an active participant in the community,” said Nicole Hoffmann, Vice President of Development for ASPIRO. “A person with a disability enjoys the same activities everyone else does like hanging out with friends, going out to eat and exploring all the fun things that happen in our area during the summer.”

Activities for No Limits Week include group outings as well as opportunities for the community to support the initiative.

“We’ll be fishing at Voyageur Park, exploring the Titletown District and eating lunch at Dine on the Deck, which the clients love,” said Mary Bouche, Director of Development for Curative Connections. “In addition, we’ll be holding a client made art show and sale at Gather on Broadway during the Wednesday night Farmer’s Market, participating in a Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant night and manning two of the Festival Foods Brat Barns to round out the week.”

Another goal of No Limits Week is to break down stereotypes so often associated with people with disabilities.

“Some people may move differently or communicate in a different way, but they are just like you and me,” said Callie Sherman, Director of Development for CP. “Meeting and getting to know someone with a disability is as easy as walking up to them and saying hello, and we invite people who see our group during the week to do just that. The conversation will go from there.”

A full list of events for No Limits Week, as well as videos of the client and celebrity “Say Hello” campaign can be found at www.nolimitsgb.org.

Healthy start to an energy-filled day

June 7, 2018

Especially with our more active lifestyles during Spring and Summer, it's important to start each day with a good, properly balanced & nutritious breakfast. Most of us know that already!

Many of us simply don't do so. Some of us grab coffee and a donut, or a fast-food "breakfast sandwich," or a piece of last night's dessert, and head out the door for the day.

As even a casual look at current health statistics will demonstrate, this "breakfast plan" isn't working out well. Chronic disease is increasing in our country, and claiming more and younger lives daily.

More people than ever -- in the USA -- are suffering ill health related to high blood pressure, obesity, type ll diabetis, and heart disease, than ever before.  

Fortunately, much of this chronic disease trend is preventable with nutritional and lifestyle changes.

Leading global health authorities like the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control, American Heart Association, National Cancer Institute, and American Diabetes Association agree that the key to preventing disease and promoting health is weight management, physical activity, and eating a nutrient-rich diet that includes whole grains, fruits & vegetables, and fish.

Michael Lee, of Lee Nutrition in Green Bay, speaks from experience as one who has completely changed his life by making necessary, yet easy changes.  

While some people will want to lose weight or target other specific health concerns, Lee thinks everyone can benefit from the NeoLife Breakfast Pack which provides the nutrition necessary to fill the most frequently occuring gaps in the Standard American Diet.

Everyone should increase consumption of whole-grain foods, fruits and vegetables, and foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids—and maintain a healthy weight. But even those with good intentions to eat a healthy diet face challenges. Busy lifestyles, eating on-the-run, and the prevalence of processed foods, all contribute towards nutritional gaps that would benefit from nutritional supplements.

The Breakfast Pack is a 30-day supply of breakfast! Designed for optimal cellular nutrition by giving your body key whole food nutrients and protein, the building block of life. Contains two (15-serving) NeoLifeShake canisters and one (30-serving) box of Pro Vitality.

NeoLifeShake is designed to fuel your body with 18g of complete protein (biologically complete with all 22 amino acids including the 9 essential ones), over 25 vitamins and minerals, and 5g of heart healthy fiber. Exclusive Glycemic Response Control Technology supports normal blood sugar levels, sustained energy, and maximum fat burning.* Protein is a key component of every cell in our body and essential for cellular nutrition and energy. Studies show that higher protein diets help suppress hunger, increase satiety and burn fat, thereby promoting weight loss and making it
easier to stay on a weight loss program.

Pro Vitality contains powerful whole food nutrients to support abundant energy, antioxidant protection, heart health, immune strength, brain function, healthy joints, clear vision, and youthful skin, hair & nails.* Pro Vitality delivers 21 essential vitamins and minerals, lipids and sterols from whole grains, carotenoids from fruits and vegetables, and the full compliment of all 8 omega-3 fatty acids from wild caught, cold-pressed Salmon.

* These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

The NeoLife Breakfast Pack is the Flagship of the full line of Natural, Better-than-Organic, Whole Food supplements available from Lee Nutrition in Green Bay.  Contact them to learn more!

Lee Nutrition is a Green Bay based business promoting health, fitness, and wellness through whole-food nutrition, exercise, and quality personal care.

CP Building Project Reaches Half Way Mark

May 3, 2018

CP is set to open the doors to its new building addition on Monday, May 7th!

Two of CP’s four core programs will relocate to the new addition. Therapy Services, which offers speech, physical and occupational therapy, will gain new treatment rooms and two large therapy gyms. CP Early Education & Care, CP’s inclusive childcare program, will gain an additional classroom. CP’s administrative staff will also move into the building.

The new addition is only phase one of the project. Phase two - the renovation of the majority of the current building - will begin immediately.

The renovation will turn old administrative areas and the former childcare into new flexible program space for the growing Adult Day Services program and a new lounge and locker room space at the Aquatic Center.

“Our staff and clients are excited and ready to move into the new building,” said Jon Syndergaard, Executive Director for CP. “This project has been a long time in the making, and although we aren’t at the finish line just yet, we are excited to move in and serve more people throughout Northeast Wisconsin than ever before.”

With the building and expansion project, CP will grow its physical footprint from 46,500 sq ft. to approximately 68,000 sq ft. Because of the additional space, the Adult Day Services program is expected to increase by 30 people a day, CP Early Education & Care by 16 children a day and Therapy Services by 31 people a month.

The project was funded through a $7.5 million capital campaign. The total project is scheduled to be completed in September.

CP Telethon Has Record Breaking Weekend

March 8, 2018

The 64th Annual CP Telethon raised a jaw-dropping $1.4 million over the weekend, surpassing last year’s total by more than $200,000 and setting a brand new record for the organization.

CP staff were hopeful this year’s telethon would be big with all of the updates made to the format and look of the event.

“We wanted to refresh Telethon this year, so we added new music featuring local bands, included more interviews with clients and brought in a new set,” said Kristen Paquet, Director of Marketing and Communications for CP. “We’ve received a lot of positive feedback and the entire event just felt new and fun. Our expectations were pretty high and I think we met them all.”

The CP Telethon is the longest running local telethon in the United States.

“The main reason why Telethon has been successful year after year has everything to do with the community,” Paquet said. “Telethon is a true tradition that people look forward to seeing, or being a part of, every year. It’s because of that support that Telethon has been able to last this long and be successful."

This was also the first year Telethon had a presenting sponsor.

“The Keller Inc. team really went all in with CP and ended up raising $115,000. It just blew us all away,” Paquet said. In addition, out of 14 VIP panels, three were new to Telethon this year. “We have our VIP panels that return every year, but it’s nice to see new faces, too. We’re just so fortunate to be in a community that supports us and wants to get involved with what we do.”

WBAY-TV2 and Let Me Be Frank Productions were also instrumental in the Telethon’s success.

“Telethon has aired on WBAY since there has been a Telethon,” Paquet said. “Every year, people see their favorite WBAY personalities return as hosts, which is a great tradition.”

"Every person I've ever met has skin."

February 1, 2018

While we might chuckle at this, it's of course true - and our skin is the largest human organ.  That's right, our skin is an organ of the human body - and the very largest one.

"The skin forms an effective barrier between the organism and the environment preventing invasion of pathogens and fending off chemical and physical assaults, as well as the unregulated loss of water and solutes...Changes in epidermal differentiation and lipid composition lead to a disturbed skin barrier, which allows the entry of environmental allergens, immunological reaction and inflammation in atopic dermatitis. A disturbed skin barrier is important for the pathogenesis of contact dermatitis, ichthyosis, psoriasis and atopic dermatitis."

- The skin: an indispensable barrier. Proksch E1, Brandner JM, Jensen JM. 2008 Dec;17

In lay terms, this means that our skin is what protects us from harmful elements in -- and damaging effects of -- our environment.  If we keep our skin in a good, healthy condition, it can do its job effectively.  If we do not keep our skin healthy, then our protection is compromised -- opening us up to skin disease as well as other illnesses.

According to Austin Community College's Associate Degree Nursing Physiology Review, The first line of defence (or outside defence system) consists of physical barriers, including your skin, that are always ready and prepared to defend the body from infection.

Thus, it seems that if you are a man or a woman - and if you have skin - you will do well to take proper care of it!  With all of the many products on the market, the question quickly becomes "Which One?" 

Michael Lee, of Lee Nutrition in Green Bay, has been personally testing the Nutriance Organic Skincare system currently in Pre-Launch phase from NeoLife International.

NUTRIANCE ORGANIC is a certified scientifically-formulated marine botanical based organic skin care line. The Age-Defying Cell Activating System harnesses the synergistic properties of Nutriance Organic, in 3 simple steps to diminish signs of premature aging. Marine botanicals are sourced from a protected biosphere, the Molène Archipelago in Brittany, France, renowned for its exceptional wealth of seaweeds, seewaters, mineral salts and trace elements.

The ingredients and manufacturing methods used, with the strict quality standards and strict environmental standards employed, enable Nutriance skin care line of products to be certified to the high standards of COSMOS ORGANIC certification through the ECOCERT GREENLIFE certifying body.

Michael began using Nutriance Organic Skincare on January 24th, applying the simple 3-step system just once daily - after his morning shower. Here's what he has to say about his experience thus far:

I've never been a "skincare guy."  I just never thought much about it. I'd use some sort of pre-shave and aftershave, and maybe some sunscreen in the summer, but otherwise just washing my face with whatever soap I used in the shower.

When NeoLife invited me to attend a Pre-Launch event a couple of weeks ago in Toronto, I wasn't particularly enthused, but decided to go and hear what they had to say.  I'm certainly glad that I did so. We heard from various scientists, including Dr. Liz Applegate (a nationally renowned expert on nutrition and fitness, and faculty member of the Nutrition Department and the Director of Sports Nutrition at the University of California, Davis), and several medical doctors, including long-practicing dermatologists.

I not only came away impressed, I also decided that I needed to personally use this skincare system so that I could monitor and report my own results.

Over the course of 7 days, I used the system once daily - each morning.  The first time took a little longer, as I kept reading the labels to be sure I was using each step properly. From that day on, the entire application process has taken me only 5 minutes daily.

Here's what I've noticed: 

The dry and itchy patches I had at the outer corners of my eyes are gone.

The deep wrinkles to the sides of my eyes are smoothing out more with each passing day.

I no longer have chapped lips - even in Green Bay's cold winter weather! This had been a chronic problem for me.

I no longer experience a "tight and cracking" sensation on the skin on my face when I am outside in cold weather -- not even this morning with windchills of -14.

My "color" is better and more even; people comment that I have a younger and more healthy appearance.

And another unexpected bonus; I found that I no longer need to use any pre-shave or shaving creme! I get a smooth and close shave having only splashed my face with warm water!

Michael has taken to using the hashtags #YesItsForMen and #YesItsForMenToo in his social media posts (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) about Nutriance Organic Skincare.

I want people to know about this! And men? Hey, as I've said, "Every person I've ever met has skin."  A friend of mine put it this way, "When you're out with your Beauty, do you want to look like an old beast?" Sure, that's funny -- but it's also serious.  If you think about the potential skin diseases and other illnesses that can result from inadequate skin protection, is 5 minutes daily too much for guy?

We are truly thankful

December 21, 2017

What a year it has been for CP! If you’ve driven down Webster Avenue over the last several months, you’ve probably noticed that CP is expanding.

The 21,000 sq. ft. addition is enclosed and work has begun on roughing out office and program areas. Once the addition is complete (scheduled for April), we’ll start work on renovating our current facility that will add more program space for our growing number of clients!

But none of this would have been possible without the generosity of our community members and local businesses.

This time of year, we take pause to reflect on those who have meant so much to us; supporters, volunteers, clients, and staff. We are truly thankful to be surrounded by so many positive people doing amazing things and helping us to celebrate all abilities, and to unlock the potential in us all.

So, from everyone at CP, we say Thank You! Thank you for supporting us over the years through your time, talents, and treasure. We wish you a happy Holiday Season, and all the very best in 2018!

National Diabetes Month

November 16, 2017

You or Someone You Love May Have Diabetes

According to the American Diabetes Association, nearly half of all American adults have diabetes or prediabetes, yet most don’t understand the life-long burden of this chronic illness or the 24/7 work it takes to effectively manage diabetes.

While Type I Diabetes is not preventable, Type ll Diabetes can be prevented with diet, exercise, and various life style changes.  What's more, even Type I Diabetes becomes easier to manage with proper attention to nutrition, physical activity, and other positive choices.

Diabetes is one of the "Big Three" conditions, together with Heart Disease and High Blood Pressure, that account for a staggering number of unnecessary deaths in the USA each year.

Again, according to the American Diabetes Association, "Unaddressed, diabetes takes a heavy toll medically, financially and individually. People with diabetes are at an increased risk for other serious health conditions, including cardiovascular disease, kidney failure, amputation and blindness. The economic burden of diabetes and prediabetes is $322 billion each year, and people with diabetes have health care costs that are 2.3 times higher than someone without diabetes. Yet the true cost of diabetes is in the millions of lives it touches."

Lee Nutrition invites you to a Free Presentation: "National Diabetes Month ~ Prevent and Treat Diabetes For Life" on Wednesday, November 29th, at the Allouez Community Center. This will Not be a Sales Presentation. For Full Details, Please Click Here

ANITA DESTICHE Named Client of the Month

November 9, 2017

Pro Fitness is excited to put the spotlight on Anita Destiche this month!

After thinking about personal training for 25 years, Anita decided she was ready to become stronger and more physically fit.

She hoped this would allow her to spend more time dancing and eliminate the need for medication. "I'd also like to look nice for pictures at my Granddaughter's wedding."

It's been 16 months since Anita began training with Lisa and people are noticing.

"I'm getting compliments, which builds my self esteem, buying new clothes, and I have more energy." Personal training keeps Anita disciplined and committed to working toward her fitness goals. "You have to trust the trainer's knowledge and respect their decisions. Because of the healthy changes I've made, both my personal and public life are better organized!"

Going forward, Anita would like to lose more weight and be physically active at least 30 minutes a day.

"I'd like to lose another 80 pounds and maybe run or walk a marathon."

"Without a trainer, you get no-where on your own. Trainers are not just training! They listen, encourage, praise, mentally stimulate you, befriend you, and set a good will example."

Pro Fitness is located at 801 Hoffman Road - Suite 103. You can contact them by phone at 920.632.7048, or Visit them on the Web at ProFitnessInc.com

October 5, 2017

CP’s building and expansion project is really starting to take shape!

The foundation has been laid and walls are going up on the 21,600 square foot addition, and the excitement can be felt throughout the community. CP staff have been busy behind the scenes preparing and planning for the new space, which is expected to be completed in April 2018.

The completion of the addition will mark the next phase of construction for CP, which includes the renovation of a majority of the current facility to create more program space to better serve clients and grow programs. CP anticipates the entire project to be done next September.

In addition, the $7.5 million CP Capital Campaign, which has funded the project, is finally coming to fruition thanks to the generosity of the community, with the goal of serving almost 50 percent more people come 2018. Yet, CP remains roughly $600,000 short of its $7.5 million goal.

GARY AMBROSIUS ~ September Client of the Month

September 7, 2017

Pro Fitness is excited to put the spotlight on Gary Ambrosius this month!

Gary started training at Pro Fitness about a year and half ago. His initial goals were to improve balance, flexibility, mobility, and most important, because of Asthma, Gary wanted to increase his lung capacity.

Gary’s asthma is improving, his balance is getting much better, and he feels a lot better overall. Amazing accomplishments considering how much his life changed 23 years ago. Gary’s inspiring story, in his own words:

“My fitness journey began on an icy morning, December 9th, 1994. I was struck by a truck while attempting to assist people in a van that had rolled over. I endured a broken right hip, broken left leg, broken ribs, ruptured spleen, and had multiple fractures. I was confined to a wheel chair until my broken bones healed enough to put weight on them. Dr. Grace stated if I do it right, he would get me walking again. Dr. Grace referred me to the CP Center for treatment in their aquatic pool. The staff at the CP Center was terrific and did a great job in getting my mobility and getting me back walking again.

After I completed my therapy, I did not want to lose mobility, so the staff at the CP Center referred me to the YMCA. It was there during a class that I noticed a group of runners on the track above. They invited me to join them and my running took off from there. It was after I started running that I was diagnosed with Asthma. Just another obstacle to overcome in my fitness journey.

I continued taking classes at the Y and some time ago, I took a class that Chrystal was leading. After class we got talking and she invited me to stop over at Pro Fitness and try one of her classes there. After some thought, I decided to take her up on the offer. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Her first class was kind of tough but I survived. The people I have met and friendships I made have made Pro Fitness a dynamic place to work out. I have also done personal training at Pro Fitness and will be signing up for additional personal training sessions this fall and winter. The staff is great and has been so helpful in keeping me motivated.

I would like to thank the staff at Pro Fitness for all their help in keeping me on track and everyone will know I am there when you all hear Chrystal proclaim “Breathe Gary”. Thank you so much for all Pro Fitness has done in keeping me focused and on track to reach my health fitness goals.”

Meet Michael Lee

August 24, 2017

The Green Bay News Network is excited to introduce our Members and Readers to Michael Lee, of Lee Nutrition, a Green Bay based business promoting health, fitness, and wellness through whole-food nutrition and exercise.

Michael was born and raised here in Green Bay, attended Annunciation Elementary School, graduated Green Bay West High School in 1971, and is a 1990 honors graduate of DePaul University.

We had the opportunity to sit down this week with Michael, and ask a few questions for this article:

How did you become interested in the areas of Health and Nutrition?

"Thanks for asking!  I suppose like many people in various professions, I became interested because of a profound personal experience.  In late 2014, I suffered a severe health set-back due to complications from osteoarthritis and a degenerative spinal condition.  To spare you the details of the entire saga, I'll cut to the chase: I ended up in a wheelchair in March of 2015.  On 'good days' I could manage to struggle and hobble around with a walker. The pain and lack of mobility, combined with the effects of various medications had me feeling pretty low; I was beginning to consider entering a residential care facility.

Some friends of mine, Ryan & Shari, and Tony & Gina, suggested certain Neo Life whole food nutritional supplements and dietary strategies that might relieve my pain, as I knew that the medications were only making me more susceptible to depression - which was a place I didn't want to go.

Within a couple of months, I was out of the wheelchair and using only a cane.  About two months more and I was able to walk unassisted and have been doing so ever since."

What made you decide to go into this business?

"Again, it was my health set-back and subsequent recovery.  I was so amazed at my progress, that I knew I would have no trouble telling others about my experience; what happened to me, what helped me, and the difference it made in my quality of life.  This was something I knew that I could and should share with other people."

What do you enjoy most about your business?

"Everyone who knows me, knows I'm a 'People Person.'  I've always had an interest in helping others - in being of service to anyone in any sort of need. I'm very quick to say, in any given situation, 'I'm happy to do whatever I can to help.'

So, what I enjoy most is simply that - listening to people and trying to help them find answers to their health and fitness needs and goals.  Many times, I can provide immediate access to the very things that will help them.  When I can't, then I'll do whatever I can to steer them to the right resources.  I love people, and I love helping."

What do you do for recreation -- that is, when you're not "at work?"

"Had you asked me this a year or so ago, I probably would have said that I don't really do anything! Mobility had become difficult at best, and I also had a lot of bad 'couch potato' habits.

Now, since my recovery and after losing 63 pounds since January 28th of this year, I have begun working out at a local gym, and -- for the first time since 1973 -- I own and ride a bicycle!  I can hardly believe it myself -- at the age of nearly 65, I'm leading an active and energetic life again!"

What would you most like our members and readers to know?

"Here goes: Chronic disease has robbed people of health and happiness for a very long time, and it continues to do so today. Many of these chronic conditions are avoidable and can be either reversed or their effects greatly reduced through proper nutrition, physical exercise, and other positive lifestyle changes. Our 'Standard American Diet' is sad, and we all face gaps in the nutrition that our bodies need, at the cellular level, to be healthy.  

Most of us can benefit from proper nutritional supplementation.  There's a lot of supplements out there, and I've learned that Vitamins are not vitamins, Protein is not Protein, Minerals are not minerals; there really are critical differences, and it's important to choose natural, whole food, human food chain supplements that present to your body in a way that is highly bioavailable and easily absorbed. Don't settle for anything less - it's your body and your health that are on the line here, so be picky!"

Lee Nutrition is proud to offer the complete line of superior quality, non-GMO supplements by NeoLife - a leader in whole-food nutrition since 1958.

CP ~ "Helped Me Walk Again!"

August 17, 2017

The Aquatic Center at CP believes that aquatic exercise can help support each person with their individual wellness goals in a safe and effective environment.

Here's proof of what such support can help to accomplish...

------

When Mauree woke up on May 14, 2013, she was planning to go to kickboxing class. But when she tried to get out of bed, she realized she had no feeling in her legs.

Mauree was diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis, a rare neuro-immune disorder. Mauree explains it as a type injury where her brain was unable to communicate with the nerves in her legs due to an inflammation in her spinal cord. She was paralyzed from the waist down. After 10 weeks in the hospital and a rehab facility, Mauree went home using a wheelchair.

Mauree’s physical therapist suggested looking into aquatic therapy at CP to help with her recovery process. Mauree started coming to the Aquatic Center at CP in September of 2013 and began working with Bonnie, one of the aquatics instructors. Bonnie completed an evaluation of Mauree, provided exercises and started working with Mauree one-on-one.

“When I first started at CP, I wasn’t able to stand up in the water,” Mauree recalled. “But now, I can stand on my own without having to hold on to anything and I’ve started taking additional classes to help build my strength and balance. It’s those small steps that are the biggest achievements.”

Mauree now walks with use of canes or a special walker and continues to make progress in the pool and daily life.

“No one is sure how I’ll recover, and I’ll probably never be back to where I was before everything happened,” Mauree said. “But I’m moving forward and as long as I can keep doing that, I’m happy.”

Mauree recalls when doctors told her that whatever she was able to gain in her recovery progress after two years was most likely where her mobility would stay.

“Well, it’s been three years and I’m still progressing,” Mauree said. “CP is such an amazing facility that has helped me gain so much back. Bonnie challenges me and always gives me something new to try. She helped me walk again.”

Not one to rest too long, Mauree now shares her story with the community and educates people on disability etiquette. Another personal goal of hers is to get out hiking again.

“I’ve always loved to hike and with more progress, I know I’ll get to do it again. I might have to do it in a different way, but it will be just as fun.”

CP Receives 2017 Packers Foundation Impact Grant

August 3, 2017

It was announced on July 13th, that CP is one of two recipients of the 2017 Green Bay Packers Foundation Impact Grant.

The Packers Foundation Impact Grant is a matching grant, requiring CP to raise an additional $250,000 in order to secure the donation from the Packers Foundation. As such, we are turning to the community for their continued support and giving them an opportunity to double the impact of their donations.

The campaign will run indefinitely until they raise the $250,000 for the Packer match, dollar for dollar. However, CP has strategic initiatives planned for the next year related to raising funds for this campaign - should that be necessary.

CP will direct the funds from the impact grant toward our plan to guarantee sustainability in six flagship programs and introduce five additional programs new to Northeast Wisconsin - including serial casting, an anti-gravity treadmill, innovative adult and children's programs, among other things.

They are confident they can make it to the "end zone" when it comes to raising these funds, but CP will need the community on their team!

New Product ~ Glucose Balance

August 3, 2017

At their North American Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada last weekend, NeoLife International's Scientific Advisory Board announced the release of an exciting new product, Glucose Balance.

In 2014 the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published data derived from 2012 investigations estimating that more than 29 million Americans (9.3% of the population) had diabetes. Additionally they pointed out that more than three times that many (37%) or about 86 million Americans age 20 and older had prediabetes. Combined, that means as of 2012 nearly half of the US population 20 years of age or older suffers from some form of this disease.1 Since that time, rapidly growing data shows it is only getting worse.

To address this epidemic, The NeoLife Scientific Advisory Board has created a safe, drug-free, blood glucose support product. NeoLife Glucose Balance represents yet another example of how our understanding of carbohydrate metabolism enables us to produce products that can contribute to lifelong health and vitality.

Glucose Balance is rich in whole food sourced botanicals, encompassed with natural ingredients like Cinnamon, circumin and turmeric which are known to help support normal glucose levels during fasting and after meals in three primary ways.*

Manage Glucose Uptake

Optimize Insulin Sensitivity

Maximize Insulin Receptor Function

NeoLife's exclusive formula combines ancient wisdom drawn from Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese herbal medicine, backed by leading-edge modern clinical science. This product includes the benefits of the following natural and proprietary whole foods.

Cinnamon (Cassia)- The most effective and efficient natural ingredient studied to support healthy blood glucose levels and metabolism.*

Curcumin (Curcuma longa L.)- The most bioactive phytonutrient component of turmeric, which assist insulin function and insulin's production by the pancreas.*

Turmeric (Curcuma longa L.)- This antioxidant phytonutrient provides a broad spectrum of curcuminoids as well as beneficial effects to balance inflammation, and helps maintain normal healthy blood glucose levels.*

Chromium GTF– Chromium a derivative of yeast, is responsible for maintaining the body’s healthy equilibrium by metabolizing carbohydrates and aiding in the production of insulin.*

Alpha-Lipoic Acid– Helps support normal blood glucose levels by protecting the body from free radicals and efficiently utilizing insulin as needed.*

Welcoming Lee Nutrition to the Network!

July 20, 2017

This week, we're excited to welcome Lee Nutrition - NeoLife Wellness Club Promoter - to the Green Bay News Network!

Lee Nutrition is a Green Bay based business promoting health, fitness, and wellness through whole-food nutrition and exercise. They're proud to offer the complete line of superior quality supplements by NeoLife - a leader in whole-food nutrition since 1958.  

According to Michael Lee, Senior Manager and Promoter, this isn't a "diet fad business."

"Our Standard American Diet (SAD) leaves us with many gaps in terms of the nutrition our bodies need in order for each of us to be our best.  Some of us need to lose weight, some actually need to gain weight -- without simply putting on layers of fat -- and others need to be sure they're getting the important vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients to support a long life and healthy lifestyle."

Lee is especially proud of the fact that the NeoLife line of whole-food supplements are fully researched, tested, and endorsed by the Scientific Advisory Board - a cadre of internationally known and respected scientists who must approve of every product and ingredient prior to any product being released.  

"And, the tight scrutiny doesn't end with a product launch. Everything continues to be batch tested on a regular basis to ensure that each product is of uncompromisingly high quality.  If any ingredient is found to be lower than the Scientific Advisory Board's exceptionally high standards, the entire batch is rejected -- even if it means a particular supplement goes temporarily unavailable.  Purity and itegrity is more important than revenue.  That's a company with which I am happy to be associated!"

In celebration of joining the Network, Lee Nutrition is offering a GBNN Exclusive New Member Special: 

"Membership in our NeoLife Wellness Club is free with your first order, and this offer makes the deal even sweeter!"

Low Carb & Delicious

July 13, 2017

A Delicious Night at a'Bravo!

Pro Fitness sponsored an evening of Delicious, healthy food and special friends at a'Bravo last month.

Julie & the staff of a'Bravo created & served an awesome sampling of their new low-carb menu. Julie also shared a personal, heartfelt testimony to the benefits of clean eating, and Dr. Dan Koster shared his medical expertise on the lifestyle. Bravo!

Now that you know where to go for a low carb night out, how about a yummy low carb dessert recipe you can make at home?  Pro Fitness client, Erin D., tested this one and gave it two thumbs up:

No Bake Paleo Strawberry "Cheesecake"

Crust:
1 c. Almonds
12 Pitted Medjool dates

Filling:
2 c. Cashews, soaked in water overnight
1/3 c. Honey
5 Tbs. Lemon juice
1/2 c. Coconut oil, melted
1 tsp. Vanilla extract
1 c. Strawberries

Optional:
Melted chocolate to drizzle on top

1. Place the dates in a bowl of water and soak for 10 minutes. Rinse and set aside.

2. To make crust, prepare a 9-inch springform pan with coconut oil spray. Place the almonds into a food processor and pulse until finely ground. Add the dates and blend until combined. Press the mixture evenly in the bottom of the pan, slightly going up the sides. Place in the freezer to chill.

3. To make the filling, drain & rinse the cashews. Place cashews, coconut oil, lemon juice, honey and vanilla extract into food processor and blend until it reaches a smooth, batter-like consistency. Add the cup of strawberries and blend until smooth.

4. Pour the strawberry filling on top of chilled crust. Place in the freezer for at least two hours to harden.

5. If desired, drizzle melted chocolate on top before serving.

There is no time like the present to take control of your own health!

CP Looking to TRIUMPH

June 8, 2017

Team of Clients Ready for Annual Mile Race

CP will have a strong contingency of people at the starting line of the TRIUMPH Mile on June 9, the day before the Bellin Run. This is the fourth year for the race.

The TRIUMPH Mile is a one mile walk/run for individuals with mild disabilities who require guidance from able-bodied athletes. The event is hosted by the Bellin Run and organized by myTEAM TRIUMPH-WI, a non-profit athletic mentoring program created for those with disabilities. Race participants, or Captains, are teamed with a myTEAM TRIUMPH-WI volunteer, or Angel, to help them through the race.

“We have five clients from CP’s adult program participating in the TRIUMPH mile this year,” said Emily Lensmire, an adult instructor at CP. “We’ve had trainings at CP with our Angels over the last several weeks and everyone is ready and pumped for the event.”

The TRIUMPH Mile will take place on the streets around Astor Park. Captains and their Angels run, walk or wheel two laps around the park to complete the mile.

"The TRIUMPH Mile is an expression of community collaboration to support people with disabilities and their goal to live a healthier, more impactful life,” said Christian Jensen, Executive Director at myTEAM TRIUMPH-WI. “With the support of CP, ASPIRO, Curative Connections and Bellin Health, more than 100 individuals with disabilities will complete their one mile journey toward their moment of TRIUMPH!"

Lensmire says the event gives CP’s clients a chance to realize their own potential:

“The race gives everyone the opportunity to be physically active and challenge themselves,” Lensmire said. “Even if they only complete one lap, they are still doing it on their own and that is always something to celebrate.”

The community is invited to watch this inspiring event. The race starts at 5 p.m. Those on social media can help spread the word by using #TRUIMPHmile.

Proper Training for Distance Running

May 11, 2017

In an article that recently appeared in the Green Bay Press-Gazette, there were several great quotes on the subject of distance running.  We found these particularly interesting and insightful:

John Bingham, author of “No Need for Speed: A Beginner's Guide to the Joy of Running,” wrote: “The miracle isn’t that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start.”

Then there’s this thought, whose origins are too trampled to trace: “Races are run with the legs. Marathons are run with the heart.”

The article also included advice and suggestions from several area health and fitness professionals; especially a timely topic given the Bellin Run is coming up on June 10th.

Read the entire Press-Gazette article by clicking here.

We asked Doug Van Iten, of Pro Fitness to add his thoughts to those expressed in the article:

"Very good article! The comments from Mike, Nick, and Colin were spot on. Runners definitely want strong glutes to push them down the road, strong Quads to absorb the impact of the forces on each leg, stability in the hip muscles to keep everything in alignment below the hips, and cross training to avoid overuse injuries."

Doug said that he would focus on 3 specific things: Rest, Nutrition, and Supportive Staff.

Rest: Injuries can manifest from a number of causes, weak muscles, imbalanced muscles, and also improper footwear selection. Having these 3 experts to guide you on preventative measures is vital to an enjoyable running event.

I would recommend that rest time in between your training runs is also critical for a reduced injury rate. If you place the body, and its connective structures under unusual stress (running 10, 15, 20 miles for training), then plan for some rest time in between.

Because everyone is different (ie. Body weight, muscle mass, speed, distance running, other physical stress related to your profession, etc.) it makes it difficult to apply an appropriate rest time in between your training runs.

Common overuse indicators would be: 1. Runners Knee - pain over the kneecap; 2. IT Band Syndrome - pain on the outside of the leg from the hip to the knee; 3. Shin splints - pain in the front part of the lower leg; 4. Muscle tears - excessively sore muscles that do not seem to heal within 2 days; and 5. Stress Fractures - a bone injury that requires no running at all to heal.

If you have experienced any of these conditions recently, then consider decreasing your training load, or increase your days off in between the training runs.

Nutrition: My personal "go to" nutrient for the marathon training is the increase in Omega-3 Fatty Acids. I use a dose of 8 to 10 grams of Fish Oil supplements for the two weeks leading up to a marathon.I also eat salmon and vegetables for 2 to 3 meals the week of the marathon.

Basically I eat as much anti-inflammatory foods as I can the week preceding the running event. I want to "pre-load" my body with good anti-inflammatory nutrients in preparation for the "pro-inflammatory" running event.

Then, after the event, you will be able to go home and do all your chores with minimal soreness, and everyone is happy!

Supportive Staff: I would highly encourage you to surround yourself with a group of professionals that will assist in your running goals.

Mike, Nick, and Colin are great people to start with in case an issue comes up that warrants their input.

I also would include a Personal Trainer to coordinate your program, a Massage Therapist for the recovery during your training, a Registered Dietician for the nutritional support.

And don't forget your running buddies, and your family that will be there at the finish line celebrating your accomplishment with you! They are Golden!

CP Has a New Look

March 16, 2017

CP, a proven leader in developing progressive solutions for a variety of physical, sensory and communication conditions, is ready to show off its updated logo with the community.

“CP has been a part of the community’s history for more than 60 years,” said Kristen Paquet, Director of Marketing & Communications at CP. “As CP has grown and our services have expanded, it was time to refresh our brand with a look that better told our story."

Some of the growth CP has experienced has included developing new programming for a more diverse audience, widening the scope of its expertise and expanding to locations in the Fox Cities and the Lakeshore for adult services. All lead by a talented and experienced staff.

“We were looking for something fresh, vibrant and strong,” Paquet said. “But it also needed to reflect our roots in the community and our commitment to helping anyone that could benefit from our services. I think our new logo captures that perfectly."

Another reason for the updated brand was the common misconception that the organization only serves those with cerebral palsy.

“Although that is how we began, CP has now grown into a community resource,” said Paquet. “We’ve become a destination for families all over Northeast Wisconsin seeking services for a variety of physical, communication and sensory conditions.”

In addition to CP’s highly regarded adult day services program, the non-profit also has an extensive Therapy Services department that serves infants to adults who are in need of physical, occupational and speech therapy, and is home to the most comprehensive assistive communication technology program in Northeast Wisconsin.

CP also has a state of the art aquatics center that boasts two warm water pools that are open to the public for daily exercise, injury/surgery rehab, fitness classes and family swim time, as well as an early education and care program.

Paquet says CP has grown strong enough to stand on its own two letters:

“CP has evolved from standing for cerebral palsy to being defined by what each client needs us to be for them,” Paquet said. “For some, it’s seeing continue progress, for others, it’s about building a customized plan that can used at home. CP is what a family needs us to be.”

The logo is accompanied by a new tagline: “Innovation – Compassion – Purpose.”

The updated brand comes on the heels of another exciting change for CP; a 21,000 square foot renovation and expansion project that is set to break ground this spring. The project will allow for CP to take on more clients and expand its programming.

Some of the national and local personalities who pitched in back in those days included actors Kirby Grant and Gloria Winters, from the Saturday morning T.V. series "Sky King," Russ Widoe and his DoDo bird puppet Griselda, from the local afternoon children's T.V. show "Colonel Caboose," various members of the Green Bay Packers, and so many others.

Meet Jason Manders, of Pro Fitness

March 2, 2017

This week, Doug Van Iten, Owner of Pro Fitness, would like us to meet Jason Manders, a Personal Trainer with more than 15 years experience.

We asked Jason to tell us a little about himself and his profession.

I currently work at ProFitness in Green Bay, Wisconsin which is owned by Doug Van Iten who opened ProFitness in 1997. As a certified personal trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, I am proficient in administering cardiovascular and muscular strengthening. A growing passion of mine in the industry is utilizing my skills in corrective exercise and functional movement screening to assess potential musculoskeletal limitations in clients and provide them with exercises that will address their individual fitness needs.

As to "Why" Jason chose this professional field, he had this to offer:

I was an active child who turned into an active adult. I chose this career out of my passion for exercise. What’s unique to me is my passion for corrective exercise, which stems from injuries I’ve sustained. It’s all about knowing how things work together and know why when they don’t. I like to teach people about muscles and why they work and why they may not work. 

I know it sounds clichéd, but I like working with people. I’ll go one step further; I like to educate people. Similar to what I've already said, I chose to learn from my injuries. Other people may experience the same injury. I like to share my knowledge and experiences to give empathy and explain why things happen. I strive to earn trust. I work to develop relationships. I over-deliver on service. I let fitness sell itself, because you can’t put a price on your health.

On a more personal note, Jason added this:

My wife and I’ve been married for over eight years. After the loss of one of our daughters (Raina) to cancer in 2016; our six-year-old daughter Elianna wanted to earn money to purchase a single American Girl Doll and give it to a cancer survivor. She began painting rainbows on one side of small rocks while my wife attached magnets to the other side. They were called Raina’s-Rainbow-Rocks and were available to be purchased with any donation amount. On February twenty-fifth, Raina’s first birthday, my family delivered six American Girl Dolls to Children’s Hospital in Milwaukee. Four additional dolls were delivered to St. Vincent hospital in Green Bay just before this past Christmas.

When Jason isn't at work, he likes to strength train primarily in his basement gym -- referring to himself as a "Gym Rat", so he can be close to his family. He also enjoys playing guitar and singing.

Pro Fitness is located at 801 Hoffman Road - Suite 103. You can contact them by phone at 920.632.7048, or Visit them on the Web at ProFitnessInc.com

6 Things You Can Do to Reverse or Prevent Type II Diabetes

February 16, 2017

I am fortunate, you are fortunate, we are fortunate. This is an era of massive information sharing and human disease understanding. Having access to the world’s database of medical research has allowed me to educate and guide our clients to a better state of health.

I read every day about diet, nutrition, and disease conditions like diabetes, heart disease, cancer, stroke, etc. We are getting better at understanding these conditions; how our environment affects their expression and progression, and how our everyday behaviors can have an impact on those diseases.

Today I would like to share with you the 6 health behaviors that Dr. Rangan Chatterjee, M.D.(one of the UK's leading functional medicine authorities) used to REVERSE Type II Diabetes in one of his patients; and by the way, it only took 6 weeks!

1.  Diet – Low carbohydrate diet, no processed foods.

2.  Stress Management – Reduces cortisol levels, because cortisol raises blood sugar

3.  Get 7 to 8 hours of Sleep every day – lack of adequate sleep contributes to diabetes development

4.  Exercise - Move every day for 45 minutes, and keep muscles strong with resistance training

5.  Probiotics – Having a healthy microbiome has been associated with a reduced risk for diabetes

6. Get some Sunshine – Researchers speculate that vitamin D could reduce the diabetes risk by 25%

There you have it. I, you, and we have the ability to take these steps and adopt these behaviors into our daily lives. I like being in charge of my health, join me!  ~Doug Van Iten

There is no time like the present to take control of your own health. Contact Doug Van Iten at 920.632.7048, for a complimentary personal assessment, and let him know you would like to try one of his classes!

Pro Fitness is located at 801 Hoffman Road - Suite 103. You can contact them by phone at 920.632.7048, or Visit them on the Web at ProFitnessInc.com. Be Sure to Let Doug Know that the Green Bay News Network Sent You!

You Can Delay Cognitive Decline

February 2, 2017

This week, Doug Van Iten, of Pro Fitness, shares with us some interesting excerpts from the article "Intensive Exercise May Delay Cognitive Decline by 10 Years," by Sue Hughes - a journalist on Medscape Neurology who has a particular interest in stroke and multiple sclerosis.

------

Two new analyses from a study in a diverse racial US population have added to evidence that good cardiovascular health and physical exercise can slow cognitive decline in later years.

For the two new analyses, published as two separate papers, researchers from the University of Miami, Florida, and Columbia University, New York, re-examined the data on various risk factors and how they relate to later cognitive function.

In the study of physical activity, published online in Neurology on March 23, individuals who reported low levels of leisure time physical activity in their mid-60s showed greater cognitive decline when assessed several years later compared with those who exercised to a moderate or intense level. The difference in cognitive decline between the two groups was equal to 10 years of aging.

"Our results suggest that for older people, getting regular quite intensive exercise may help them keep their cognitive abilities longer," senior author, Clinton B. Wright, MD, University of Miami, commented to Medscape Medical News.

He emphasized that they showed a difference between intensive exercise, such as running or swimming, and low-level activity such as walking. "To be included in the moderate to intensive group, individuals had to exert themselves — ie, undergo a form of activity that raised their heart rate for more than just a few minutes several times a week."

He noted that similar findings have been reported before but mostly in mainly white populations. "Our study involved a cohort from Manhattan, which is a real melting pot in terms of race and ethnicity. It is reassuring that we have now found supporting evidence for a positive effect of exercise on later cognitive health in such a diverse population."

Doug looks forward to helping you put together and execute a sensible and appropriate exercise program. Give him a call or stop in, and take those first steps toward a happier, healthier lifestyle."

Successful Strategies for Weight Loss

January 19, 2017

This week, Doug Van Iten, of Pro Fitness, would like to pass along some helpful information on successful strategies for healthy weight loss.*  

Keep your food simple: Studies have shown that eating simpler food leads to eating less, which in turn helps you shed pounds without effort.

Be sure to eat enough:  No matter what program you choose, dieting should never be about starving yourself. Calories do count, but when it comes to weight loss, undereating is just as problematic as overeating.

Eat enough carbs to support your activity level:  Match your carbohydrate intake to the amount of exercise you do. Not only can a mismatch stall your weight loss, but it can lead to instances of fatigue and muscle breakdown if you’re over-exercising and not eating enough carbohydrate to match your activity level.

Move throughout the day:  Getting into the habit of moving throughout the day can not only benefit your weight and promote fat loss, but it can also improve your overall health and reduce your risk for chronic disease.

Address your whole life, not just diet and exercise:  Did you know that there’s a lot more to losing weight and keeping it off than just diet and exercise? For example, sleep deprivation makes us hungrier, and high levels of stress hormones cause us to eat more and store more fat, in turn reducing our ability to lose weight and keep it off. Studies also show that those with social support, a better ability to handle stress and self-efficacy, and those who assume responsibility in life are more likely to keep weight off once they lose it.

Keeping Healthy Over the Holidays

December 15, 2016

For many of us, the "Christmas Break" is something from which we spend a good portion of the new year recovering. We eat differently, we eat a bit more than we know we "should," and by mid-January we have added weight and reduced stamina to show for it.

Doug Van Iten, of Pro Fitness, recommends a Fasting Diet as a means of "keeping things in check" while we enjoy the food and fun of the holiday season.

Simply "fasting" one or two days per week - during which men keep their calorie intake to 600 or less, and women hold to 500 or less, can make a huge positive difference in our health.  Doug offers several menu ideas for these "Fasting Diets," and here's just a sample:

"Fast 600 for Men"

Dinner: Roast Pork: 4.5 oz of sliced, lean Roast Pork (289 calories), 1 tablespoon defatted pan juices (60 calories), 1/2 Cup steamed Cauliflower florets (17 calories), 1/3 Cup steamed, chopped Broccoli (17 calories) Total Calories: 383

"Fast 500 for Women"

Dinner: Oven Baked Tilapia: 7-8oz Tilapia fillet, sprinkled with your favorite dried herbs/ground spices (202 calories), Large Poached Egg (90 calories), 2/3 Cup lightly steamed broccoli florets (33 calories) Total Calories: 325

Keep in mind that building up muscle is an excellent and healthful way to burn fat.  Give Doug a call, and plan now to have a Happy & Healthy holiday season!

CP Partners with Festival Foods on New Program for Picky Eaters

December 14, 2016

CP, a leader in the development and implementation of innovative programming for children, is introducing a new program called CAFÉ (Changing Attitudes for Eating), designed specifically for older picky eaters. CP will be partnering with Festival Foods to make the experience interactive and informative for parents and their children.

CAFÉ is for children ages 6 – 12 who have aversions to specific foods, tastes, smells or textures.

“When children are young, some may have sensory conditions that impact early eating experiences,” said Chris Harkness, Director of Therapy Services at CP. “However as children get older, many parents find that they are now challenged with behavioral barriers that impede progress as well. Our goal is to help families identify and find solutions to overcome those barriers.”

CAFÉ will be held at Festival Food’s new Green Bay-North location at 2430 University Avenue. During the program, a trained occupational therapist from CP will work with children and parents to implement strategies designed to help families progress to creating a mealtime experience everyone can participate in. In addition, parents may tour the store with Festival’s dietitians and learn about the NuVal® system, which can help them make informed decisions to ensure a balanced diet.

“Holding the program at Festival Foods and utilizing their kitchen space allows us to be more interactive with meal planning and preparation,” Harkness said. “And the knowledge Festival’s dietitians will bring to this program will be invaluable to parents.”

The CAFÉ program will be especially useful for parents who feel they have to work around their child’s eating habits, find going to a restaurant a challenge or avoid events where food is being served.

“This can be a frustrating and exhausting time for parents and other siblings,” Harkness said. “We want to help families get to a place where mealtimes are enjoyable.”

CAFÉ is part of CP’s SMILES alternative programming. The program meets on Tuesdays from January 17 to March 7 from 4 – 5 p.m. Cost for CAFÉ is $80 per child and includes the cost of food.

Children do not need to have a medical diagnosis to participate in any of the programs. For more information, visit www.cp-center.org/events/calendar/ or call (920) 337-1122.

All Women Karate Class Gets Their First Stripes At Graduation

December 8, 2016

Some clients from CP have a reason to celebrate:

A group of 10 women will be graduating from their Courage Karate class on Monday, December 5th; each student earning their very first stripes for their belt, and gaining a lot of self-confidence along the way.

The Adult Day Services program at CP provides functional skills training for adults with physical and developmental disabilities. Shelly Deterville, a CP adult instructor, and co-owner of Courage Martial Arts in Green Bay, has been teaching the class.

“Learning karate is a great activity for clients because it encourages confidence, respect for others, and empowerment,” Deterville said.

Thanks to a grant from the Women’s Fund of Greater Green Bay, CP was able to start an all-women’s Courage Karate class in September.

“We’ve have had a karate class at our location in Two Rivers before, but this is the first time we’ve offered it in Green Bay and just for women,” said Julie Tetzlaff, director of adult day services at CP. “Everyone has been working very hard for the last few months and they are really looking forward to sharing what they have accomplished with friends and family at graduation."

The benefits of the class go well beyond learning martial arts. “The women in the class also benefit from range of motion exercise, flexibility and strength, and developing motor skills which are so important to maximizing each person’s independence and personal development goals,” Tetzlaff added.

The Courage Karate class has piqued the interest of several male clients at CP so staff are looking into expanding the class in the future.

Just a Reminder: CP's Capital Campaign is very near to achieving its $7.5 Million goal. You can learn more about CP’s capital campaign and how you can donate at www.cp-center.org/capital-campaign.

We All Know We "Should"...

December 1, 2016

Exercise!

And, with the New Year approaching, perhaps some of us will make exercise part of our resolutions.

Though we know we "should" exercise, we may not realize that exercise is possibly the single, most important thing we can do for our good health.

"Regular movement not only lowers the risk of developing or dying from heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, it also prevents certain cancers, improves mood, builds bones, strengthens muscles, expands lung capacity, reduces the risk of falls and fractures, and helps to keep excess weight in check. And those are just some of the more familiar effects." 

                                     - Scientific American, August 2013

Doug Van Iten, of Pro Fitness, mentioned to us that in his research he has learned of some amazing health benefits to regular exercise.

Exercise can help our nervous systems, and improve cognitive function, help to protect against inflammation, decrease fatigue and increase muscle efficiency, improve our bodies' response to insulin and help decrease the risk of type 2 diabetes.

Doug looks forward to helping you to make and keep sensible exercise resolutions for the coming year. Give him a call or stop in, and take those first steps toward a "Happy New You!"

Pro Fitness is located at 801 Hoffman Road - Suite 103. You can contact them by phone at 920.632.7048, or Visit them on the Web at ProFitnessInc.com

$7.5 million capital campaign gets a boost

December 1, 2016

Nature’s Way, a Green Bay-based company that is recognized as one of the most trusted consumer brands of dietary supplements, is giving back to the community with a donation of $60,000 to CP’s capital campaign.

The campaign is for a 21,400 square foot expansion and renovation of CP’s current facility which will increase programming and the number of people that can be served in CP’s Adult Day Services program, Therapy Services, Aquatic Center and Inclusive Childcare.

“CP has a long history of doing good work in our community,” said Mike Devereux, President and CEO of Nature’s Way. “We are excited to support this project so CP can further its mission and commitment to helping individuals and families in Northeast Wisconsin.”

CP provides services to more than 2,000 people of all ages – with and without permanent disabilities – every year. “Nature’s Way’s generous contribution gets us closer to realizing our goal of helping even more people in our community maximize their potential,” said Jon Syndergaard, Executive Director of CP. “Nature’s Way is a perfect example of the tremendous community support we have been receiving, and every gift has been appreciated.”

You can learn more about CP’s capital campaign and how you can donate at www.cp-center.org/capital-campaign.

$7.5 Million Capital Campaign Goal is in Sight

November 17, 2016

The CP Center announced Tuesday (11/15) the public phase of a $7.5 million capital campaign today. The campaign has already raised $6 million, about 80 percent of the final goal.

The campaign is for a 21,400 square foot expansion and renovation to CP’s current facility, which will increase programming and the number of people that can be served. The project includes flexible program space in Adult Day Services, an additional classroom for Inclusive Childcare, and two family-friendly locker rooms near the Aquatic Center.

The biggest change will be moving Therapy Services -- which provides occupational, physical, and speech therapy -- from the lower level of the current facility to the main floor.

“CP provides services to more than 2,000 people of all ages – with and without permanent disabilities – every year,” said Jon Syndergaard, executive director of CP. “And while our expertise and infrastructure are in place to meet the growing demand for services, our physical space is not.”

Expanding the facility means CP will gain capacity that will have a significant impact on the community.

“Adult Day Services will be able to increase its program by 30 people a day, childcare by 16 children a day, and Therapy Services by 31 people a month,” Syndergaard said. “This will help meet the growing needs in our programs, and allow us to serve our clients, families, and the community better.”

Since the start of the campaign, more than 70 individuals, businesses, and organizations have pledged their support to the project, including Jack and Inky Meng, the George Kress Foundation, Inc., Schreiber Foods, Inc., and Pat Schneider.

“Our community is tremendously supportive,” said Ron Dunford, chairperson of the capital campaign. “We received a wonderful response during the quiet phase of the campaign and are confident the public phase will provide similar results.”

Dunford also announced a way the community can get involved. “Any donation from community members would be wonderful,” Dunford said. “But those that give $250 or more to the campaign will have their name included in a community recognition piece, which will be a graphic design that will surround the front entrance and waiting area windows of the new addition.”

Syndergaard says he’s seen the generosity of the community through events like the annual CP Telethon.

“The CP Telethon raises money to help keep CP operating every year,” Syndergaard said. “And although the capital campaign is specific to the renovation and expansion of our facility, we truly believe our community will rally behind this project too."

A tentative groundbreaking could be held early spring 2017. The project will take approximately 18 months to complete. To make a donation to the campaign and view renderings of the facility visit

Fasting Diet for Brain Health

November 17, 2016

Doug Van Iten, of Pro Fitness, is an avid reader on health topics and how a reasonable approach to diet and exercise can help us live a long and happy life. Doug recently shared an article with us from the Johns Hopkins University magazine, which discussed protecting your brain from diseases such as Alzheimer's through what is known as a Fasting Diet:

Sticking to an intermittent crash diet, with no more than 500 calories two days per week, primes the brain for protection... Studies show that keeping calories at around that level stimulates two messaging chemicals that operate at the cellular level and are key to the growth of brain cells in animals and humans...

The shock of fasting leads the brain to create new cells. As neurons are coaxed to grow, the brain becomes more resistant to the effects of protein plaques that underlie cases of Alzheimer's, or the damage inflicted by Parkinson's.

(To Read the Entire Article, Click the link below this story, entitled "Don't Feed Your Head.")

To help his clients, Doug also provides some suggested menus to help make it easy to try a Fasting Diet. Following a fasting diet can, in and of itself, improve the health of your brain long term. You can gain even more benefit when you combine the diet with a realistic and formal exercise routine.

Doug Van Iten has been helping his clients enjoy a happy and healthy life for over 16 years. Doug's sensible supportive, and personal approach to developing a healthy lifestyle is why so many of his clients achieve their short-term and long-term individual goals.

Meet Doug Van Iten!

November 3, 2016

Last week, we welcomed Pro Fitness to the Green Bay News Network. This week, we'd like to introduce you to the owner of Pro Fitness, Doug Van Iten.

“Do what you love, and love what you do.” This best describes the commitment Doug has for his work and for the people who train with him.

Doug believes that if you have the courage to challenge yourself physically, mentally, and spiritually, you can become the person you desire to be.

He has the experience and knowledge to guide you through your physical transformation; no matter your starting point:

16+ Years at Pro Fitness

BS Degree in Community Health Education

Certified Level 1 Super Slow Instructor

CPR and AED Certified

Tri-athlete, husband, and father

Each day Doug is impressed by the commitment and effort of Pro Fitness clients. He is thankful. He is fortunate. He is humbled.

His special areas of interest include: Multi-sport training, Cancer and Exercise Training, Low Back Strength and Conditioning, Nutrition and Weight Management, Swimming, Biking, and Running.

Doug’s Fitness Philosophy: “Each day make a small change in your behavior to move closer to your goal, and then reach a little higher!"

"People in their 40s and 50s are seeing their parents grow older and become reliant on multiple prescriptions to deal with the effects of diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc. We are living longer lives than ever, but the quality of life in our older years isn't necessarily the way people envisioned when they were in their 40s and 50s. Pro Fitness develops programs for men and women who are in their 30s, 40s and 50s, which include healthy eating, an appropriate level of exercise, and education to get them on their path to a long, happy, and healthy life."

We're sure you'll find the Pro Fitness staff available and friendly, and the atmosphere fun and exciting!

October 27, 2016

Please join us in welcoming Doug Van Iten & Pro Fitness to the Green Bay News Network!

And, this is the Perfect Time to think about getting in shape...Before the Holidays!  Many people wait until after the holidays to try and melt off the pounds they gained while celebrating.

Personal Fitness Training from Pro Fitness can help you avoid the pitfalls of eating too much over the holidays, and get you into a routine that will help you feel good all year long!

Doug points out that Personal Fitness Training provides the proper guidance and motivation to achieve a higher level of fitness.

"The best value of having a personal trainer is the encouragement to challenge your body, your mind, and your spirit to achieve YOUR fitness goal.We can help you design and plan the process of change to make your goals a reality!

The key benefit of having a Personal Trainer may be the relationship you develop with the trainer.We would like to establish open communication regarding your current health profile, and develop a plan of action to make changes.This relationship must be built on trust and confidence that each of us will give 100% effort."

Some people sign up for personal training to lose weight, gain strength, prepare for a sporting event (ie. Bellin Run), or just to get rid of the minor aches and pains of getting older.

"While your reason may be different, our commitment to you is the same. Our one-on-one appointment ensures 100% of our attention and 100% of your effort. We look forward to every workout with you and celebrating the victories along the way!

CP Offers Fall Programs Kids will "SMILE" About

August 16, 2016

The CP Center, a leader in the development and implementation of innovative programming for children, is currently accepting Registrations for its Fall SMILES groups. CP's sensory based strategies are designed to meet the unique needs of children of all abilities.

Sensory, Motor, Interaction, Language and Experiential Solutions (SMILES) provides programming options for a child's unique needs, including communication and language skills, sensory processing, flexibility, balance and coordination, feeding, and self-care skills.

"Some children have difficulty processing certain sensory information," said Chris Harkness, director of Therapy Services for CP, and creator of the SMILES program. "They may find certain articles of clothing irritating, are easily distracted, won't touch or taste certain foods, or have difficulty with social skills. Our goal is to foster an environment where children are challenged to reach their potential, within a safe and engaging space."

Harkness says what makes CP and the SMILES program different, is that the focus is on behavioral indicators instead of diagnostic.

"Focusing on specific behaviors to help assess and determine the best course of treatment, is less limiting, opens up multiple treatment options - that include family involvement - and provides a high rate of success."

SMILES fall programming includes:

Picky Eaters Anonymous focuses on helping children become less anxious, and more accepting of new or non-preferred foods. Children are encouraged to explore a variety of textures and flavors at their own pace.

Sensory Social promotes integration of sensory and motor skills to use in everyday activities like dressing, eating, self-care, and social interaction.

Horse BAC Riding is held at the Rock'N W. Ranch in De Pere. Children in this program will use the movement of being on a horse to improve core strength and control, improve posture and overall coordination. A focus on peer interaction and group skills is also a part of this program.

Sessions are led by CP's experienced physical, occupational, and speech-language therapy staff. Children do not need to have a medical diagnosis to participate in any of the programs. Sessions begin in September, and are offered for children pre-school age and older. Session length and costs vary. For more information, Please Click Here.

To register your child for our unique and innovative programs, call Tammy L. at 920-337-1122. You may pay in advance by cash, check, credit card, or HSA. Payment is due on or before the first day of class.

You can contact the CP Center in Green Bay, by calling 920.337.1122, or by visiting them at 2801 South Webster Avenue.

Events will include:

Music Activity at the CP Center

When and Where did the CP Center Get Started?

June 28, 2016

Now in its fifth location,with a satellite location on the Lakeshore in Two Rivers, and 125 employees, Cerebral Palsy, Inc., "The CP Center," continues to refine their services to best meet the needs of the community.

But how did it all begin?

In 1952, a group of individuals including parents, physicians, and caregivers identified that children and adults with special physical needs needed a place in Northeast Wisconsin, where they could receive quality rehabilitation and support services.

In 1954, after two years of researching and planning, Cerebral Palsy, Inc. was founded and began operations within the walls of Bellin Hospital. During the inaugural year, the first CP Telethon was broadcast. The community was supportive of this initiative, and $36,000 was raised to support CP.

Through the years, additional community needs have been identified, and CP's services have evolved.

As CP's reach has grown to meet the needs of individuals of all abilities, the need for additional space and employees has also grown. 

In early 2014, they celebrated 60 years of serving Northeast Wisconsin during the live broadcast of the 60th Annual CP Telethon on WBAY-TV 2. The Annual CP Telethon continues to be the longest running local telethon in the United States on the same channel, and the community continues to provide generous support to improve the quality of life for individuals with disabilities, and for the CP organization.

CP Telethon Was Huge Success - And You Can Still Help!

March 17, 2016

The 62nd Annual CP Telethon was a great success; It was probably one of the top 3 or 4 telethons in its long area history!

The weekend was filled with entertainment from area school groups and individual entertainers.  The atmosphere inside the studio was electric; with volunteers manning the phones, TV crews constantly on the move to capture all of the excitement, and local celebrities offering their time to help support the important work of the CP Center.  As of the close of the Telethon, CP had raised over $1.2 Million.

Jon Syndergaard, Executive Director of the CP Center told us:

“The community has supported the CP Center and our clients very generously, which allows us to continue our mission. A great example of of how financial support helps CP continue it’s important work, was the opening of our Fox Valley Center in 2015.”

To schedule a tour and learn more, please contact Rebecca Kamenick, Fox Cities Site Manager - Phone: 920-968-9109, Email: rkamenick@cp-center.org

Meet Nate & Tabitha Wallenfang - And Come to Their Grand Opening!

March 3, 2016

Here at the Green Bay News Network, we really see our members as friends with whom we also happen to do business.  When it comes to friends, we would be remiss if we did not mention Nate and Tabitha Wallenfang, the founders and leaders of Titletown Select Baseball and Softball.

Nate and Tabitha started Titletown Select Baseball, a Non-profit organization, in 2013 to provide a positive skills and strength training program for student athletes in the Green Bay area.

Their goal is to help develop skills, strength, teamwork, and leadership skills of student athletes regardless of current talent level. 

As Nate explained: “A student athlete might be the star of a team when he or she is very young. However, they may either lose interest in their sport, or get passed up by other athletes due to a lack of focus and work ethic.

A student athlete who is not the star when they are young however, has the opportunity to develop their skills and understanding of the sport; if they are willing to put in the effort required. We love working with student athletes who have the passion to learn, work hard, and participate in great team sports.”

Titletown Select does more than just field baseball teams however. They provide area youth with an impressive array of positive developmental facilities, events,  and opportunities, including:

Positive Training Environment

Training for Individuals or Teams

Student Athlete Skills Training

Sports Strength and Agility Training

Martial Arts Sports Training for Teens

Personal Bootcamp-style Training (Individual or teams) (Adult or teens)

Batting Cages, Climbing Ropes

Sports Camps

Baseball and Softball Select Teams

Baseball and Softball Open Gym

Nate and Tabitha are very pleased to announce that Titletown Select Baseball has opened new training facility at 1014 Parkview Road in Green Bay; a Year-Round facility, not limited by weather related issues.

"We're excited to be able to offer this new facility, and we're inviting everyone in the area to come out and see it for themselves!"

"Winter's Coming - I can feel it in my bones"

September 16, 2015

Summer, by the calendar, is in its last few days -- and "weather" or not we like it, colder temperatures are moving into Wisconsin!

Typically, at least for many of us, we're not quite as active -- on a daily basis -- during the colder months, as we have been over the Spring and Summer.  This "slow-down," while natural and understandable, can play havoc with our muscles and joints.  Many of us notice more aches, pains, and stiffness at this time of year.

Active Chiropractic is once again offering their New Patient Special, which includes a Chiropractic Exam and Treatment - a total package value of $200 - at No Charge!

Welcoming Titletown Select Baseball to the Green Bay News Network

September 3, 2015

We're pleased and excited to announce that Titletown Select Baseball has joined the Green Bay News Network!

Over the past several days, in person, and by phone and email, we've had the opportunity to chat with Nate & Tabitha Wallenfang about their exciting youth baseball project.

Titletown Select Baseball was created in fall of 2013 in response to the diminished interest in quality youth baseball in and around the Northeast Wisconsin area.

Titletown Select Baseball seeks to provide quality instruction and development for student athletes who possess the will to succeed in sports and school, and who are interested in learning.

We are a nonprofit organization that invests in our kids. Please visit our website and let us know if you have a student athlete who wants to learn in a positive environment.

Effective athletic training is the first pillar of the program which seeks to increase the conditioning, strength and flexibility of our players as a protective mechanism of injury.

Baseball specific skill instruction, notably proper throwing and pitching mechanics, is provided by the top level baseball instructors locally, to help develop correct throwing styles, reducing arm stress and fatigue. Finally, team practices are held with our coaching staff; who provide personalized coaching with extensive experience of playing and coaching.

In 2015, Titletown Select Baseball grew to three teams, providing opportunities at the 9U, 11U and 12U levels.

This year also brought aboard two trainers who played professionally, who have brought an expansive knowledge of the game, and have propelled our program to heights well above the 2014 season.

Our players come from all over Northeast and Northern Wisconsin. All are here for one common goal: To increase their skills, experience baseball as many never have before, and develop new friendships through the love of the game.

As Tabitha told us, "Titletown Select has now grown to include Softball as well as Baseball.  The upcoming 2016 Season will be the first to offer both programs!"

Tryouts for the 2016 Baseball & Softball Seasons will be held on September 27th at Green Isle Park.  Click here for Details.

Titletown Select is also sponsoring a Family-Friendly Beanbag Tournament on September 12th, which promises to be a fun time for all.

Volunteer Opportunity with YWCA TechGYRLS Program

August 12, 2015

We heard of a great volunteer opportunity at the YWCA, so we called and spoke with Natalie Peters, who is presently recruiting volunteer facilitators for the TechGYRLS® after school program throughout Brown and Door Counties.

Natalie provided some details:

YWCA TechGYRLS® is an after-school program designed to raise girls’ interest, competency, and confidence in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Our aim is to reduce the under-representation of women in these fields, by cultivating girls’ interests in these subjects at a young age. Volunteer facilitators will have the role of running TechGYRLS® sessions, and mentoring the girls involved.

We do not require a background in STEM; rather, we are looking for compassionate and energetic individuals, who are passionate about youth development. We are also looking for people who can commit to a schedule of 2 hours per week, for a period of 8 weeks; beginning in early October.

This is a great opportunity to gain leadership experience and help reduce poverty among girls and women.

See Flier & Position Description below.

The YWCA is located at 230 South Madison Street in Green Bay.

What Are the Benefits and Risks of Chiropractic Care?

August 11, 2015

More than 22 million people experience back pain in the United States each year, and look for alterntives to surgery for the alleviation of their pain. Of that group of people, the majority seek to alleviate their discomfort with the assistance of their chosen chiropractor.

Chiropractic care and spinal manipulation is is generally considered a safe and effective treatment for acute low back pain. Acute back pain, which is more common than chronic pain, lasts no more than six weeks and often gets better on its own.

Many research studies have shown chiropractic care to also be helpful in treating neck pain and headaches. Additionally, osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia have also been shown to respond to the moderate pressure used both by chiropractors and practitioners of deep tissue massage.

It has been found that people suffering from osteoporosis, spinal cord compression, or inflammatory arthritis should avoid undergoing spinal manipulation. Additionally, patients with a history of cancer should first consult their medical doctor before undergoing spinal manipulation.

In any case, the treatment is based on the accurate diagnosis of your back pain. The chiropractor should be well informed regarding your medical history, including ongoing medical conditions, current medications, traumatic/surgical history, and any and all pertinent lifestyle factors.

Assistive Communication Technologies - Helping to "Get the Word(s) Out!"

July 1, 2015

The inability to speak or to speak clearly is isolating and limits individuals from participating in academic, social and vocational pursuits.

Specifically trained speech pathologists and communication technology specialists assess and train individuals in the functional use of basic non-speech communication boards to sophisticated computer–based devices with electronic speech output including the i-Pad.

Some people with physical challenges are prevented from using home, school and business computers in their conventional forms. Adaptive computer access assists them in meeting these challenges using effective alternative equipment, modifications as needed and workstation adjustments to maximize independent computer utilization.

Programming and services are available to individuals with, but not limited to the following diagnoses and/or conditions:

Adults 

ALS 

Arthritis

CP

Muscular Dystrophy

MS

Stroke

Traumatic Brain Injury

Visual impairment

Children

Apraxia

Got Back Pain? Active Chiropractic can help!

June 25, 2015

According to recent studies, the 2nd most frequent cause of Long Term Disability -- and the 5th most frequent cause of Short Term Disability -- is Back pain; caused by various disorders. 

There are many reasons for a painful back; some skeletal, and some soft tissue related. Regardless of the initial cause, the recommended protocol very often includes both chiropractic and physical therapy treatments.

Wouldn’t it be nice to go to the same doctor for both therapies?

That’s where the doctors at Active Chiropractic and Rehabilitation, in Allouez, come in: Drs. Matthew Gallagher and Matthew Herber are both experienced Chiropractors in Allouez. They are also certified in the patented soft tissue therapy, Active Release Technique® (or ART®), for muscle-tissue related pain:

Active Release Technique®, or ART®, is a patented hands on soft tissue therapy designed to help people who are experiencing problems with their soft tissues: muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Joint dysfunction and muscle strains often lead to many pains: hip, back, knee, shoulder tightness as well as headaches.

ART® providers evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of patient’s muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. By identifying the specific muscles and/or tissues causing the problem, ART® Providers are able to combine patient movements with non-invasive directed tension allowing the muscles to move freely once again. There are over 500 treatment protocols which are unique to ART® allowing Providers to treat individuals for each specific injury or problem area. Patients who receive ART® will often see results within just a few treatments.

Welcome "Active Chiropractic" to the Green Bay News Network!

June 18, 2015

We are excited to welcome Drs. Gallagher & Herber, and Active Chiropractic to the Green Bay News Network!

Active Chiropractic & Rehab is best known for outstanding results with the patented soft tissue therapy, Active Release Techniques (ART).

The ART protocol system resolves many injuries previously considered untreatable, often in just a few visits. It is becoming the preferred method of treatment for active individuals who want to get back on track.

Chiropractic care is a hands on practice. They use hands-on spinal manipulation and other alternative treatments. The theory behind it being that the proper alignment of the body’s musculoskeletal structure, in particular the spine, will enable the body to heal itself without the need for invasive surgery or medications.

Chiropractic restores joint function and facilitates proprioceptive neuromotor pathways. Add exercises to restore muscle function, and you are well on your way to recovery!

Aquatic Exercise Can Help You Achieve Your Goals

April 30, 2015

Aquatic exercise can help in a variety of ways for many physical challenges, special conditions and fitness needs.

At the Aquatic Center, we strive to provide a unique variety of classes to achieve your goals by utilizing the properties of warm water in a safe and effective environment.

The buoyancy of water decreases joint compression forces thus decreasing pain associated with exercise. The viscosity of water provides resistance in all movements and exercise intensity can be varied by increasing movement speed. The warm water pools, averaging 90-92 degrees, increase circulation, flexibility and promote relaxation.

The six basic components of exercise are
the core foundation of all of our classes:

Balance

Strength

Endurance

Agility

Flexibility

Coordination

Aquatic exercise can help in a variety of ways for many physical challenges, special conditions and fitness needs. At the Aquatic Center, we strive to provide a unique variety of classes to achieve your goals by utilizing the properties of warm water in a safe and effective environment.

The buoyancy of water decreases joint compression forces thus decreasing pain associated with exercise. The viscosity of water provides resistance in all movements and exercise intensity can be varied by increasing movement speed. The warm water pools, averaging 90-92 degrees, increase circulation, flexibility and promote relaxation.

The six basic components of exercise are
the core foundation of all of our classes:

Balance
Strength
Endurance
Agility
Flexibility
Coordination

As Amy Murphy, Community Outreach Specialist, wrote in a recent issue of “Embracing All Abilities,”

Through collaboration, one of the six core values that CP has identified as the foundation of our organization, CP’s Outreach Services provides for those in need of financial assistance to purchase adaptive equipment to enhance their mobility, independence, safety and sensory needs. A special thank you to the donors who contribute to this need in our community.

YWCA Joins the Network!

July 21, 2014

Please join us in welcoming the YWCA of Green Bay - De Pere to the Green Bay News Network.  

The YWCA offers many services to empower women and children from youth and child care programs to health and wellness.  We also provide a variety of programs that focus on low income women and families and closely align with our mission of Eliminating Racism and Empowering Women. More than ever, women with a health crisis, low-income women and at-risk children in our community are in need, and our programs coupled with strong relationships with other groups and organizations are aimed at meeting that need.

Youth Development

YWCA Green Bay-De Pere launched several new initiatives as part of a grant from the U.S. Justice Department.  These important Youth Development programs, with a special focus on at-risk elementary and middle school children who are at-risk or low income, will improve school success to create a foundation for success in life and inspire young people to envision careers that tap into their talents and imagination.

Many parents, especially parents of at-risk children, are concerned with how to help their children succeed in school and/or what their children are doing beyond school hours.  These initiatives engage youth ages 6 to 12 in certified "after school" programs that take place year round.  They will deal with life issues such as peer pressure, alcohol and drugs, bullying, and other activities designed to improve school performance, build self-esteem, establish wholesome relationships and foster self-respect.

Women's Empowerment

Since 1919, YWCA Green Bay-De Pere has served thousands of women through a variety of services focused on women's empowerment, particularly for those who are low-income or in need.  YWCA also supports the health and well-being of women and children with a Health & Fitness Training Center and two 88º pools that accommodate all ages and abilities and classes of all types.
