Kennesaw Chiropractor Volunteers at Fit City Kennesaw Event

Today was the kickoff for the Fit City Kennesaw initiative, held at the Ben Robertson Community Center. Kennesaw chiropractor Dr. Powell and Dr. Goeddeke attended the event as volunteers. The event was a major success, thanks to the efforts of Kennesaw Councilwoman and fellow Kennesaw chiropractor Dr. Cris Eaton and the participation of Life University, WellStar Health System, the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association, and the Atlanta Hawks. Kennsaw residents had the opportunity to have baseline Body Mass Index, Blood Pressure, and Cholesterol screenings, thanks to WellStar. Life University also offered chiropractic spinal screenings, including posture screenings and paraspinal thermography. Other participants included Sweet Tomatoes, Body Fitness 45, and various other health-related businesses in the area.

In addition to the baseline measurements attendees were able to receive (to be compared at the end of the year after this year’s phenomenal lineup of community fitness events), there was a series of speakers and demonstrations throughout the event. Dr. Ron Kirk of Life University was the kickoff speaker, and had the entire room performing Straighten Up America’s spinal hygiene exercises. Following Dr. Kirk, Ralph Davis gave a presentation about the benefits of Chiropractic care. A representative of the Atlanta Hawks got everyone off their feet doing some basketball exercises. Other notable demonstrators and speakers included a Zumba dance demonstration, and the fascinating story of a Kennesaw native who lost around 150 pounds through diet and exercise!
