Most people look forward to the holidays as a time of year to celebrate with family and friends. But if you have been putting off getting into shape – either by losing weight, exercising, or both – this time of year can be extremely challenging.

Instead of waiting to make that New Year’s Resolution for 2017, why not start now? The fitness professionals at BeFIT Health Studio in Lake Mary can help you achieve all your goals, whether you want to lose weight or gain muscle, recover from an injury, improve performance in a particular sport, or simply get into the best shape of your life.

“Starting with Halloween and lasting through the Super Bowl, you’ve got one holiday after another,” says co-owner Jeremy Cook, who opened BeFIT with Justin Bedor in 2012. “Then, everybody tries to get ready for beach season after that.”

Instead, Justin and Jeremy encourage their clients to stay focused during the holidays and stay on track with their workout routines.

While most of the big fitness center chains see an increase in membership come January, Justin and Jeremy say they actually see a lot of new clients roll in about a month later.

“A lot of people go to [one of the big] gyms in January and realize they are so packed [with people] and they’re not accomplishing what they want to accomplish,” Jeremy says, “so they’ll come to us for a little more guidance and a little more help.”

At the BeFIT Health Studio, conveniently located off Lake Mary Boulevard between Longwood Lake Mary Road and Country Club Road, clients don’t have to worry about being in an intimidating, crowded atmosphere. BeFIT offers personal training, as well as small group personal training classes, in a friendly, upscale environment.

“Most people are intimidated the first time they come to a gym,” Justin says. “They may be embarrassed about the way they look or their fitness level. But they’re not going to be intimidated here. We try to be as welcoming as possible.”

That welcome environment starts with an initial complimentary workout, which includes a tour of the BeFIT studio and its “functional training” equipment that focuses on balance and core strength. Make an appointment today – and beat the holiday rush!
