4 employees, 3 spouses, 3 children, and the baby of the Weigh to Wellness Denver family came out to support CycleNation this year.
We cycled for 2 hours outdoors at the Tivoli Quad to help bring awareness to cardiac disease and stroke. This was a fun, motivational event with upbeat music, great instructors, and inspiring survivor stories. So far, $661,059 has been raised to support the American Heart and Stroke Association through the CycleNation events.
The event was a great reminder that heart disease and stroke can affect any one of us, even if we are seemingly healthy. We strongly encourage our patients to take an active role in reducing their risk of developing these diseases. This includes knowing your numbers, such as your cholesterol, and adopting a healthy diet and lifestyle.
More on how to reduce your risk coming soon!
Did you know that heart disease is the #1 killer in the United States? And stroke is #5?
Stroke and heart disease have claimed far too many of us. Almost every one of us knows someone who has been affected.
At Weigh to Wellness Denver, we work everyday to help patients decrease their risk of these diseases through nutrition and lifestyle. This year we will be participating in CycleNation to help make a difference by raising funds and awareness for heart disease and stroke.
100% of the funds we are raising through CycleNation will go to the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association — bringing groundbreaking research, helping people live healthier, and saving lives! CycleNation Indoor is going to be high-energy, fun — and thank you in advance for supporting us! Please come join us at the event and/or donate today! Together, we have the power to overcome stroke and heart disease!
At the CycleNation event, we are asked why we ride.

Welcome to our Weigh to Wellness Denver Blog! Here we plan to share tips, advice, and thoughts on everything health and wellness.
We recently expanded our office to include several new patient exam rooms and office spaces. Our kitchen was expanded as well to provide room for educational cooking classes. Our first class took place on Saturday, June 4th and was a huge success! We cooked two vegetarian main courses (deconstructed eggplant parmesan and a teriyaki tofu and broccoli dish) as well as a nice spring salad, utilizing our favorite online cooking resource, Cooksmarts. This is an online meal planning service that makes cooking healthy meals at home simple, affordable and achievable. Please contact us if you would like more information regarding this resource, and we would be happy to send you the link. We plan to offer more of these informative cooking classes so keep an eye out for dates and time!
