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

Summer is officially in full swing with our 90+ degree days. Hopefully, you’re enjoying the sunshine and spending a little extra time near the water to stay cool. If you’ve been wanting to improve your swimwear look for your days at the beach, in the pool, or out on the boat, strengthening your core is the perfect place to start.


Why Strengthen Your Core?

When you think core muscles, your stomach (abdomen) likely comes to mind. However, a strong core is so much more. This group of muscles contains your obliques (muscles on each side of your midsection), the transverse abdominis (your deepest ab muscles), your pelvic floor, the muscles surrounding your spine, and even your glutes. Your core is the center of your body, and it supports much of what you do as well (think sitting, standing, walking, lifting, etc.).

Your core is strengthened in most full-body exercises, but it’s a good idea to give it some work of its own as well. While crunches or sit-ups are a well-known abdominal exercise, they aren’t the best movement for your body as they can cause unnecessary stress to your back.

Try the McGill curl-ups shown in this video for a better (and safer) core workout.


Healthy Summer Holiday Meals

With every holiday comes added opportunity for less-than-healthy eating. However, healthy holiday foods can be fun as well. By making healthier choices this Independence Day, you can stay on track with your goals while enjoying yourself at the same time.

Along with healthy foods, be sure to drink enough water throughout the summer season. With the heat we’ve been experiencing, our bodies need more fluids than usual. Water is the best choice you can make when it comes to hydration.

Keep working toward your goals this Fourth of July with plenty of water and these nutrient-packed recipes:
