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.

 Exercise of the Month

As you spend more time exercising on your own at home, it is beneficial to dive into some heart rate talk. It’s important to keep your heart rate at a healthy, yet effective number while you work out. Your ideal heart rate range depends on your age and the exercise level you’re currently at (beginner, intermediate, or advanced).

Check out this helpful chart to see where your heart rate should be while you’re exercising:

You can measure your heart rate by pressing your fingers to a pulse point (your inner wrist or the upper corner of your neck are great options) and count the heartbeats you hear. Count for ten seconds or one full minute, and compare your number to the chart above.

 Get Active Outside

We’ve been staying home for weeks, but it looks like the end of quarantine is finally in sight. Consider getting some fresh air and moving your body at the following beautiful (and now open) outdoor sites:
Take a Walk Over the Ringling Bridge
Walking this bridge back and forth will give you one full mile of movement, and it’s filled with breathtaking sites. Extend your walk/run through Bayfront Park while taking in the gorgeous boats at Marina Jacks.
 

Spend Some Time at Siesta Key
The number one beach in the nation has opened back up! Get some sun and fresh air as you visit this incredible stretch of sand.
There are still some restrictions you’ll need to follow, such as no coolers, umbrellas, or chairs, but it’s still a great place for a walk or jog.
View the complete list of current restrictions at Siesta Key here.
 

Check Out the Progress at the Up-and-Coming Bayfront
We’re all looking forward to what the new Bayfront will bring. They’ve recently begun construction on one of their three main developments, a Mangrove Bayou walkway. Imagine the walks and jogs we’ll be able to take once it’s finished!
See more about the Bayfront’s plans and progress here.
