4 Ways to Say Thanks to Those That Inspire Your Wellness Journey

Fitness

While it’s officially the season of thanks, being grateful shouldn’t be exclusive to November. This time of year helps to remind us who we are truly thankful for, especially when it comes to our journey. Here’s to the people that we often spend the most time with; our wellness community! From the trustworthy instructors that keep us going strong, to the front desk team at our go-to studio, we couldn’t do it without them. 

If you're looking to show a little *extra* gratitude to the ones who support your wellness endeavors, we have four thoughtful gifts that will keep giving long after Turkey Day.

 

To your wonderful workout buddy. 

Yoga Club MINDBODY

How do you say “thank you” to the person who is always up for some downward-facing dog or joins you at that last-minute lunchtime fitness class? Give them the gift of contemporary comfort they will actually use with Yoga Club! Featuring brand name, discounted athleisure apparel that is personally styled and delivered right to their door, Yoga Club’s subscription service is the perfect present for the one you love to workout with.

To your #1 fitness studio or wellness business.

Fitness wellness thank you note

Maybe it’s like a second home. Or perhaps it’s your sanctuary where the staff supports your every move. Whatever your go-to wellness business is, show you’re thankful for the place that keeps you feeling your best with a handwritten thank you note. A simple way to show your gratitude, a few words of appreciation will go a long way to those that give their all to their wellness business. Plus, they might even put it on display at the front desk!

 

To your favorite instructor or practitioner.

Hydro Flask MINDBODY

Those that make you better have a special place in your schedule… and your heart. Show your gratitude to the instructor that pushes you past your limits or the practitioner that makes your mind, body and soul whole with a new Hydro Flask water bottle. They work hard for you, so give them something easy and thoughtful— the gift of hydration!

Black-owned Beauty and Wellness Businesses to Know

February is Black History Month—a celebration of the achievements and contributions of African Americans in society.  As the beauty and wellness industry becomes a more welcoming and inclusive space for all, we are taking this opportunity to continue to shine a light on the gap of inclusivity and diversity in our industry, and take action to promote, empower, and honor the Black community that shapes and grows wellness.  

While the beauty industry is making improvements—it's important to showcase and support Black businesses and the creatives in this space every day. To honor them, we're shouting out some of our favorite Black-owned beauty and wellness businesses to support. 

1. Beauty Bin 

Beauty Bin is a full-service day spa and dry bar located in Asheville, NC. With a focus on inclusivity for people of all backgrounds, genders, and races, their MO is to match the outer beauty of every client to their inner beauty. From eyelash extensions and hydrafacials to waxing and massage, Beauty Bin is a one-stop-shop for all the spa services.  
 

2. KIKA Stretch Studio  

The KIKA Method® is a gentle assisted stretching process that loosens up tight muscles freeing your body from pain and stress. By practicing this method, clients can experience decreased muscle tension, increased energy, enhanced flexibility, a substantial reduction in stress, improved posture and relaxation, and increased mental clarity. While its headquarters is located in Las Vegas, NV, they have multiple locations sprinkled throughout the US, including Atlanta, New York City, and Dallas—just to name a few.

3. Kimberly Coleman Salon 

At Kimberly Coleman Salon, their philosophy begins with promoting healthy tresses, elegant sets, unique accouterments, perfect pampering of hands and feet, and precision cuts. Known for working with models and celebrities, they fully appreciate and celebrate the diversity of their clientele which also includes super moms and warrior dads. 

4. Pressed Roots 

Pressed Roots was developed with the simple concept in mind—that everyone deserves access to easy, and quality hair care. What started as a single pop-up shop in Boston, grew to a multi-city pop-up tour, and is now slated to be the largest national hair salon franchise specializing in the care and styling of highly textured hair, they launched their first flagship location in Dallas, TX.  

5. SW3AT  

Jersey City resident, Alyza Brevard-Rodriguez started SW3AT. The company began as a fitness apparel line in 2015 but evolved into a sanctuary catered to health and wellness now known as SW3AT Sauna Studio—the first infrared sauna studio in Jersey City. The healing power of infrared heat therapy is a phenomenal option for holistic health proven to strengthen the immune system and provide relief from joint stiffness and muscle pain. It is also supportive of any fitness program as it aids in weight loss (you can torch up to 900 calories in a 45-minute session) while also detoxifying your body from some of the most harmful toxins. 

6. The TEN Nail Bar 

Kelli Coleman and Anika Jackson opened The TEN Nail Bar in Detroit to address a void in their city. They saw a need for a quality, modern nail bar that could also serve as a fun social space for Detroit’s residents and professionals. They designed the TEN to provide their clients with a #Perfect10 experience—where you can relax, enjoy music, a drink, your friends, a clean and precise manicure, and a much-needed break from all your hectic days. 

7. Bettye O Day Spa 

Located in the beautiful downtown Hyde Park Chicago area, Bettye O Day Spa specializes in first-class treatments. They aim to nurture and relax each of their clients with individualized and innovative therapeutic techniques. From body wraps and massages to facials and hydrotherapy, this day spa promises to be a safe place for healing to occur.
