Wellness Advice for the Most Wonderful Time of the Year
It’s Almost New Year’s Resolution Time!
Get a jump on your 2019 New Year’s Resolutions this December. As a client of BeFitSRQ, you don’t have to wait until next year to start on your goals. During one of your December sessions, we can review your goals for the New Year and establish a plan.
The first step? Scheduling a free InBody session. This assessment is completely complementary for BeFitSRQ members, so no need to worry about shelling out hundreds of dollars for it. It’s just one of the many benefits of BeFitSRQ. At the end of the InBody test, you’ll receive a sheet that shows how many pounds of fat and muscle you have in each segment of your body, how your body composition changes over time and the minimum number of calories needed to power your body.
But don’t take my word for it. Read this testimonial from BeFitSRQ client Leah Gordillo to learn about her experience at the Studio and how the InBody plays a role in her wellness.
Exercise of the Month
While the holidays can be the most wonderful time of the year, they can also be the most stressful time of the year. To lower stress levels, go outside and get moving. The temperatures are finally dropping, so now is the perfect time to enjoy the great outdoors. Try walking the Ringling Bridge, strolling Siesta Beach, doing outdoor yoga, playing tennis or skipping the cart when you play a round of golf so you get more walking in. All you have to do is grab a friend and get moving!
Healthy Eating During the Holidays
Here’s a pro tip: to stay on track with your 2019 fitness goals, you have to make healthy decisions before the year even starts. The holiday eating decisions you make at the end of 2018 can set you up for success in the year ahead. Here are some easy, healthy food choices you can make:
- Choose champagne over eggnog
- Choose hummus over cheese and cream-based dips
- Choose dark chocolate over white or milk chocolate
- Choose shrimp cocktail over fried finger foods
- Avoid dinner rolls

Holiday Gift Sets for Everyone in Your Life
If you’re looking for the perfect holiday gifts for friends and family (and maybe even yourself!), look no further. You can find the ideal items at the BeFitSRQ Studio. Here’s what we have:
A doTERRA gift set with doTERRA’s Holiday Joy oil blend plus an essential oil diffuser for only $60.

Or mix and match your favorite doTERRA products with 20% off one item and 30% off two or more.
A BloqUV set will give your gift recipient cheery sun protection. It includes a red jacket and top that they’ll want to wear throughout the winter. For the holidays, BloqUV clothing items are on sale: 20% off one item and 30% off two or more items. Remember: even on cooler days, it’s still important to protect skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
BeFitSRQ gift cards are also available for those who are a little harder to shop for. It’s true — everyone loves a gift card, and there’s really no better gift than getting fit and healthy!
Help kick off the holiday season with the downtown holiday parade on the night of December 1. You’ll see local dignitaries, nonprofits, businesses, high school marching bands, and don’t forget the grand finale — Santa Claus, of course!
The next day, the Sarasota Polo season starts. It’s a beautiful way to spend a Sunday afternoon — outdoors, watching polo players compete and tailgating with friends and family. And don’t forget to join in on the stomping of the divots!
On December 8, make sure to head downtown again for the Sarasota Holiday Boat Parade of Lights. Watch the decorated boats from Marina Jack, Bayfront Park, City Island or Centennial Park. It’s a waterfront wonderland!
I’ll see you out there, celebrating the season!
