‘Tis the season to relax, indulge, enjoy and breathe.
I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to become a part of a new health and fitness community, I’m Fitpossible!
Community. Social. Real.
We believe in unplugging and heading outside, giving back to our communities and that laughing, hugging and high fives are not optional. We celebrate the beautifully imperfect fitness and wellness journey that we are all on. Oh and the word “diet” is like a swear word around here. We call it the “D” word. We try and sweat every day, but if we don’t, we don’t sweat about it. We are real people. We share real stories.
Introducing the ‘Tis the Season Social Campaign!
Some might think it’s crazy for a fitness and wellness oriented community to support and encourage an hour of sleeping in, a little whipped cream on lattes and an evening with friends instead of an evening with free weights. Or maybe you think it’s brave, balanced and real. We hope it’s the latter. We encourage you to approach the holiday season a little differently this year. Let’s focus on what we actually need this holiday season. What do we mean by that?
This is not a free pass to skip the gym or to morph into a holiday couch tater. Nor is it a cookie eating contest. That’s not what we are saying. This isn’t even a holiday “challenge”. At I’m Fit Possible, we are all about personal fitness around the holiday season and 365 glorious days of the year. Here is the “but”. But, if you are going to skip the gym or make a deliciously sinful nutritional choice around the holidays, make it worth your while. Take the time to catch up with an old friend (in person or over the phone), curl up by the fire with a peppermint tea, treat yourself to a trashy, gossipy magazine and a glass of wine, go the theater and support local talent, clean out your closet and donate the items and enjoy every beautiful, relaxing minute. Most importantly, let go of the guilt and regret that swirls if you skip the gym or make that poor nutritional choice. You work hard and life is about balance.
No challenges. Just you. Enjoying life.
The way it works is simple. There isn’t a contest to enter or any hoops you have to jump through. You do not need to sign up, register or even participate every day. Starting December 1st through December 31st, we will feature a new product and company every 3 or 4 days from one of our 10 wonderful sponsors. You simply share how you are relaxing, enjoying, indulging and breathing this holiday season on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. Be sure and use the #imfitpossible hashtag and mention I’m Fit Possible so we see how you are living it up this holiday season. Be sure to follow I’m Fit Possible on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram where the winners will be announced every few days.
From December 1st to 4th each Facebook post, Tweet and Instagram pic will earn you one chance to win an amazing prize pack from Somersault Snack Co. The more you share the more chances you have to win. That’s it. We told you it was simple! Don’t forget to mention I’m Fit Possible in every tweet or post, so we don’t miss it. We will randomly choose and then announce the winner at the end of the day on December 4th and then feature a new product, with a new chance to win starting December 5th.
Wonderful and generous sponsors.

Additionally we will be sharing tips from Gillian (http://gillianboult.blogspot.ca/), our community yogi. She will be focusing on how to use yoga to energize, breathe and stay true to you this holiday season.
