A Strong Core for Summer











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.).

Small Steps Toward your Summer Body










As warmer weather and sunny days approach, you may find yourself wanting to get in shape for the season. Try not to overwhelm yourself with strict diets and long workout plans. Instead, choose a few actionable steps that will make a difference.

Exercise of the Month:Ease Extra Movement into Your Day

Walking is an excellent way to add steps to your day, especially if you’re feeling unsure of where to start in terms of working out. Try walking for thirty minutes once a day or once every other day. If you’re wanting to add more of a workout, incorporate squats, lunges, or jump squats once you get back to your driveway. This small change doesn't require any drastic changes, but with consistent effort, it will have you dropping pounds just the same.

Don’t Sweat Your Resolutions This Year, BeFitSRQ’s Got Your Back












As we move further into the new year and new decade, those New Year’s Resolutions may seem to be slipping away. At BeFitSRQ, we are here to help you carry your goals through every season. Contact us for a personalized, 30-minute session and we’ll dedicate ourselves to helping you stay on track. 

Exercise of the Month: Squat, Bicep Curl, and Press This month, get your whole body moving with this simple yet effective exercise: Squat, Bicep Curl, and Press. Get your dumbbells in hand and begin by standing with your feet underneath your hips. Lower your body into a squat, and remember to press down through your heels and not let your knees pass your toes as you bring your thighs as close to “parallel to the ground” as possible. As you stand back up, lift your dumbbells to your shoulders for a bicep curl. Instead of bringing your arms back down, move them upward from your shoulders until they are fully extended in an overhead press. Be sure to keep your torso stable during this move. Bring your arms back down to your sides slowly, and repeat 10-15 times.  Bringing Healthy Snacking Into 2020 If you’re looking for a sweet treat this Valentine’s Day, keep your health and wellness goals a priority and indulge in this guilt-free, love day recipe: Two-Ingredient Chocolate Fruit Truffles Ingredients:●     Dark Chocolate●     Cut Fruit To make this treat, simply melt dark chocolate (either on the stovetop or in the microwave) and dip your cut fruit into it. Let the chocolate-covered fruit dry, and enjoy! To make your truffles even more special, consider cutting the fruit into hearts and topping them with sprinkles of cocoa or drizzles of melted white chocolate. View the whole recipe here. Beautycounter: Changing The Cosmetic Industry For The Better Every month, we bring a high-quality, Beautycounter skincare product to the newsletter to share with you. This month, we want to share some of the great things that happen behind the scenes of this company. Beautycounter is dedicated to changing the cosmetic industry for the better. One area they are making a significant difference is Mica. Mica is a natural mineral that is often used to put sparkle or shimmer in makeup products. Unfortunately, Mica is not often a responsibly sourced product. Child labor and forced labor, wage theft, corruption, and ignorance are all a part of the Mica mining industry. Beautycounter is bringing this issue into the light and doing what they can to eradicate it. For now, Beautycounter sources Mica responsibly within the United States for use in their own products. For the Mica that is still being mined in harmful ways around the world, they are bringing awareness and doing what they can to support the communities and people involved. Beautycounter In Hollywood These products do good and look good at the same time; they were even used by celebrities at big events in recent months. Annette Benning was spotted with a natural glam Beautycounter look at the Golden Globes, and Mandy Moore had a beautiful look with the same clean products at the Critics’ Choice awards. Love Is In The Air With doTERRA Bring these sweet, natural smells to your space this month as you celebrate Valentine’s Day. Can Deep Tissue Laser Therapy Make A Difference In Your Life? If you’re living with pain and sitting out of activities you’d love to be a part of, we may be able to help. Deep Tissue Laser Therapy gets you back to doing what you love as fast as possible. It’s done in painless, 5-10 minute sessions and provides both immediate and long-term results. This form of therapy can help you get back to your sport after an injury, or it can simply help you lessen pain and regain the mobility you deserve.
