Win-It Wednesday Rochester Friends Local Giveaway

Happy Win-It Wednesday, fellow FIT BFFs! I’m celebrating my 3rd Blogiversary all month with some amazing giveaways.

Today I’m excited to announce some generous prizes for my local reader friends in Rochester, MN. I’m delighted to have more great gifts this week, generously provided by a few of my favorite businesses in town.

1-Hour Session with Health Coach Christy Olson

Christy Olson, health coach at Your Inner Sanctum has walked beside me throughout my weight loss journey. Her wisdom opened my eyes to thoughts I’d never before considered as we navigated our way through the struggles and issues that contributed to my obesity. I think back to my first session with her five years ago and am still using strategies she encouraged me to employ to manage my time back then…they were just that good!

As stated on her website, Christy can help you develop a plan to deal with acute or chronic illness, weight loss, stress, or addiction issues. Health coaching can also help if you are feeling overwhelmed, having trouble making decisions or sticking to goals you’ve set, or are just looking for meaning and purpose in your life.

45-minute Reiki Session with Intuitive Reading by Cody

My Reiki healing sessions with Cody Cooper at A New Beginning have had a profound impact on my ability to see the whole picture, to focus on what’s truly important. I left sessions feeling more relaxed, more energized than I ever imagined, experiencing a glowing kind of radiance within.

I’ve made deep and significant connections in my spiritual life as a direct result of just a few sessions. I found balance I never expected, a new level of enthusiasm for life and others around me. Cody has many outstanding gifts as healer, teacher, psychic and divine channel to list a few. He has strong spiritual connections which allow him to intuitively heal with messages of light, love and energy from higher light beings. Friends, he is the real deal; some of the messages he shared with me have changed my life in ways that can’t be explained any other way but miraculous!

60-minute Massage by Matt

Following massages from Matt Ebeling at A New Beginning, I’ve experienced significant relief from chronic pain associated with injuries I sustained from a car accident. I’ve also utilized his sports specific massage to ease the effects of wear and tear following multiple marathons/half marathons. The reprieve and alleviation of discomfort was such a gift…it all drifted away leaving relaxation and ease in its place.

Matt always asks great questions before massage to determine any specific needs or issues. He is talented in multiple massage modalities such as Swedish, deep tissue, sports specific, myofascial release, and hot stone.

 

Cody and Matt were recently featured in Rochester Woman Magazine for their incredible work at A New Beginning and, incidentally, you might recognize that calm, peaceful gal on the table! Check out their website for the full array of their products and services.

3 One-Day Guest Passes to the RAC

The Rochester Athletic Club is literally my home away from home! I remember feeling so intimidated the day I walked in the door, but that quickly faded away, replaced by empowerment and newfound confidence. I’m grateful to have such a beautiful facility so close to home with an endless list of equipment, classes, ammenities and services…a person could literally walk through that door every day for a year and not do the same thing twice! That’s what keeps me coming back for more, I’m never bored or stuck because there’s always someone with words of encouragement or something new to inspire me. The staff treat you like family which makes a person want to return again and again. Check out the RAC’s website for all the great things they offer!

Win-It Wednesday Aurorae Yoga

Yeah, I know it’s Thursday, I’m running a little late. I couldn’t let FIT BFFs 3rd Blogiversary pass without giving away some gifts.

So here’s the plan…let’s do some fun giveaways for the next few weeks! We’ll start with an incredible yoga gift package from the generous folks at Aurorae. I was so excited when they agreed to provide a prize pack for the occasion, but when they sent me one too, I couldn’t wait to put it to use. I’ve reviewed some of their amazing products before; you can check that out here.

Because I’ve had the pleasure of using Aurorae’s yoga gear in the past, I knew I was in for more of the same. Check out this gorgeous mat I took to a mindful location yesterday…

I enjoyed a peaceful meditation and some sun salutations on cushioned luxury. Aurorae also provided me with their delightful Hawaiian Island Afternoon Aromatherapy Spritz. The delectable scent had me wishing I could drink it…it smelled that delish! A few squirts of the spritz brought me back to the swaying palms and trade winds; the island was calling, Friends!

The experience was exquisite, and when I was finished, I slid into this divine pair of flip flops. These are designed by Aurorae, “… to make your walk as peaceful and mindful as your yoga practice.”

As promised, walking was as if I had never left my yoga mat…ahhh, the comfort!

Friends, here’s the great news, you can enter to win an Aurorae prize package including the yoga mat, aromatherapy spritz, yoga flip flops and one of these fantastic mat saks to make your practice conveniently mobile!
