About BeFitSRQ

About Michele Rose

My aim is to use the knowledge I have acquired throughout my athletic career to help others achieve their goals and experience some of the fun and joy I have had while chasing my goals. I strive to achieve a high level of education in training principles through practical experience and self-study.

I believe in quality over quantity when it comes to performance enhancement for age group athletes or individuals with busy lives and schedules.  My philosophy in training is to be doing the same exercises in my 80's that I continue to do in my 40's. 

I have lived in Sarasota/Bradenton area for 35 years. I have been in the fitness industry all my life. I started out playing tennis when I was 8 years old. I used to play at Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy. After High School I got into life-guarding, where I became competitive in Triathlons, swimming and running races and then got into personal training. I have been training for 15 plus years. Some of my accomplishments include completing 9 marathons, plus qualifying for the Boston marathon twice and completing the Boston marathon in April 2008, participating in 3 half-Ironmans, and numerous sprint and Olympic-distance triathlons.

BeFitSRQ offers the complete fitness experience with stretching, cardio, strengthening, and massage. All our trainers are nationally certified, with exercise degrees and full knowledge of human anatomy and range of motion, maximizing the benefits of your workouts without strain. BeFitSRQ knows that rest and recovery is just as important as the exercises themselves, so we offer the perfect balance of both. Be strong. Be healthy. Be Fit.

Latest News

The New Year always brings excitement and refound motivation to better ourselves and our lifestyles. This year, we are not only getting a new year but a whole new decade! Let’s use this new beginning to move toward the life we’ve been desiring. Set a few goals for yourself, and begin to work toward them through small steps. Before you know it, you’ll be bringing a happier, healthier version of yourself into the 20’s.
Some goals you may want to consider include finding more time for exercise, eating healthier, or removing unhealthy, chemical-filled products from your self-care routine or your home entirely.
One of the best ways to reach your goals is to start with small, realistic changes. Start by committing to walking around your block each day or getting out of the house one evening to attend an active event. Replace one product in your self-care routine with a more natural product or remove a toxin-filled medicine from your cabinet and replace it with something made with high-quality ingredients. Stop ignoring the pain you’ve faced for years, and seek the treatment your body deserves. Making even one of these changes is a huge step toward a healthier life, and we are here to support you and cheer you on through every small change you make.

Exercise of the Month: Consistency
This month, we don’t have a specific exercise for you to try. Instead, we want you to create a plan for yourself and be consistent in whatever you choose. We want you to find an area of fitness you’d like to improve on and take a small step toward reaching that goal.
Start by writing out a S.M.A.R.T. goal for your new year (and new decade). Making your goal Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time-Bound, causes you to be significantly more likely to stick to it.
Then, come up with the exercise you’d like to begin. Maybe you want to master the simple squat and allow this exercise to benefit your lower body in a way it never has before. Perhaps you’ll commit to getting enough water in each day, or simply standing more often than you sit. You may want to commit to bringing a simple piece of workout equipment with you when you travel, so those business trips can’t set you back anymore.
You can see more ideas, like the ones we’ve mentioned above, for your beginning fitness goal here.

Bringing Healthy Snacking Into 2020
If nutrition is one of your top priorities while moving into the new year and new decade, one area to focus on is snacking. Snacking can make or break diets, but it’s such a simple fix when you take time to plan your between-meal food intake thoughtfully.
When snacking, protein is essential to consider as it fills you up and provides your body with the energy you need to push through your day. A few simple, high protein snacks include dry, roasted nuts, fat-free, plain Greek yogurt, and low fat cottage cheese. You can view more great, high-protein snack choices here.

Cleaning Up Your Skincare Routine
If you’re currently using typical drugstore skincare essentials, switching to a more natural product line can do wonders for your skin and overall health. BeautyCounter’s Counter+ Lotus Glow Cleansing Balm has everything you need to make the switch. 
This multi-tasking cleansing balm, perfect for day and night use, hydrates while it cleanses, removing makeup and impurities with nourishing ingredients that won’t strip away your skin’s natural moisture. (Bonus: it can also be used as a mask for a hydrating overnight facial.) 

Cleaning Up Your Medicine Cabinet
Your medicine cabinet is a great place to look when bringing more natural products into your home as well. Luckily, many products can be replaced with something that does the same job but made with much fewer chemicals.
Neosporin, for example, can be replaced with doTERRA’s CorrectX. CorrectX is excellent for most skincare conditions, including minor cuts, scrapes, burns, and even acne. The ointment is cleansing, soothing, and hydrating and is perfect for every member of the family, even our little ones!

Treat Your Aches and Pains
Sometimes, it’s easy to put off treating aches and pains for years on end. However, you and your body deserve so much more. Removing pain and feeling good can help you achieve your goals, and allow you to live a happier life. Laser Therapy is a great place to start.
Check out this review from one of our athletes and clients at BeFitSRQ, Joyce R.:
“I’ve been going to Michelle for several years for weight training exercise. She knows what kind of workout you need for your body. I enjoy all the talks, laughs, and advice she gives me. Recently, I’ve had a stress fracture in my right foot and had to wear a boot. Michelle used her deep tissue laser on my foot, and I was out of my boot in two weeks. If you want to have fun while you work out, go see Michelle at BeFitSRQ.
Thanks, Michelle, for everything!”
-Joyce R
Joyce’s foot, with the help of Laser Therapy, healed in an extremely quick time frame, and she was able to get out of her boot and back to participating in the activities she loves. If you’re experiencing aches and pains, we are here to support you through your healing process as well.

Attend Active and Exciting Events
Ring in your new year with an extended celebration, and an active morning! As the title shows, there’s no judgment here on how that movement takes place. Run, walk, or even stumble along to the finish line. The important part is that you’ll be starting your new year (and a new decade!) with your fitness goals in mind. Food is potluck style, and free Mimosas and Bloody Mary’s will be served!
