In the interest of staying in touch with our awesome F.I.T.ness community, I thought what better vehicle than a monthly newsletter to share mutual interests and helpful tips.
Here I hope you'll find a little inspiration, a lot of encouragement, and the motivation to share some resources of your own that you'd like to see included in future newsletters. As always, I welcome your feedback and input.
F.I.T.'s FIRST BIRTHDAY
HAPPY BIRTHDAY F.I.T.!
Sometimes the best things in life are never intended.
Happy birthday to F.I.T.!
1️⃣year ago, 4️⃣friends realized that community and working out 🏋️♀️ together were their passions.

LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR JOURNEY IN OUR LATEST BLOG POST!
Drink plenty of water throughout the day and night.
We need at least 64 ounces of water per day. Water can also help curb those nighttime snack urges when we feel hungry or bored. Try a glass of water before reaching for the chips. Your tummy may be telling your brain you are hungry when you are actually just thirsty. Rest assured that during every Zoom online exercise class, I'll remind you to stay hydrated.
F.I.T. ARTICLE OF THE MONTH
Here's a helpful article from the Mayo Clinic about HIIT, which is the format I use in every Zoom exercise class.
"High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is not just for the young and healthy. Researchers have found that HIIT can improve health and fitness for just about everyone and has even bigger benefits for older adults."
B R E A T H E
It’s important to exhale with your exertions from each exercise repetition.
While breathing through our online group training classes is important, breathing in life is even more so.
Take time for you to stop and smell the roses.
Life can be full and challenging!
F.I.T. TECH TIP
F.I.T. has its own mobile app on a platform called "Spaces for Wix." If you haven't downloaded it already, it's free, and is an easy way to manage your account and reserve your spot for every class.
Click here to join.
* NOTE *
When you reserve your spot in our Zoom online exercise class, you're immediately sent the website link for that session via email. You might want to consider reserving your spot just before each class so it's not so hard to go back and find the original email invitation.

F.I.T. RECIPES OF THE MONTH
A plant based protein recipe choice and a seasonal fruit salad!

From the website:
"Between homemade, restaurant, and store-bought, these are the best black bean burgers I’ve ever tried. With great reviews from taste testers around the world, I’m confident you’ll be satisfied with this bean burger recipe. They’re big, thick, hearty, and flavorful. The trick is to partially dry out the black beans so the burgers do not taste mushy. Grill or bake the black bean burgers and enjoy on a bun, plain, or on a salad."

STRAWBERRY SALAD 🍓
From the website:
"This is one of my go-to salads to serve as a quick dinner side dish. There isn’t too much prep required, it comes together exceptionally fast, and it’s so versatile. Swap out the fruits, nuts, and cheese to your preference or what you have on hand. Plus, you can prepare the dressing ahead of time and use it all week long!"

F.I.T. EQUIPMENT SPOTLIGHT
Resistance bands are awesome for building strength and improving mobility. I incorporate them frequently in my 60-minute group workouts. I've included these on my website's recommended equipment list. You can find them online here.
