"This is a big initiative for the company to focus on wellness," human resources manager Kelly Bentley said. "The theme is 'Spring Into Wellness' and we asked employees to write down a wellness goal."

MBX made a point of choosing local companies for the health fair that included the Libertyville Sports Complex, Libertyville Acupuncture, Health Maintenance Institute, Advocate Health Care, United Health Care and others.

Employees had a chance to have their blood pressure checked, sit for a massage, learn about the risks of unhealthy lifestyles, and sip on smoothies and eat healthy snacks.

"This is fantastic," support engineer Shayne Wood said after receiving a massage at the Libertyville Wellness Group booth. "Spring into Wellness is a great way to promote a healthy all-around lifestyle."
