Who doesn’t love a good deal on fitness classes and spa treatments, right? Which is why we’re pretty psyched it’s Wellness Week over at SpaFinder Wellness *right now.* What this means: Well, what’s most enticing is that if you buy a $25 gift card, you get an extra one to use this week. (Sounds like a good girls’ date to us!)

But it also means that throughout the week, leading wellness experts, chefs, and celeb trainers from the nation’s top gyms, spas, and wellness providers have been sharing their tips, tricks, recipes, and tools. If you check out the SpaFinder Wellness site, you can find some of the free events, open houses, workshops, consultations, and more.

FITNESS is headed to a special event in NYC tonight to check out product demos from some of the nation’s top beauty, skin-care, and wellness companies. Click on over to @FITNESSColleen’s Twitter feed later tonight or tomorrow to see how it went!

Fashion Diaries: A Mexican Adventure (Part 2)

Written on December 13, 2011 at 9:47 am , by

I’m back in New York from the white sandy beaches of Mexico with some more great stories to share with you! (Missed part one? Catch up here!) One the second day of my stay at the Paradisus La Perla in Playa del Carmen, I was given the opportunity to enjoy a deep tissue massage at the Yhi Spa (pronounced like “G”).

Walking into the spa was like a dream—the scents, the sounds, the friendly and prompt staff—it was as if I was the only customer they were tending to, which is such a nice feeling to have! I was directed to the changing room, where I was given a big comfy robe and sandals to wear, and then had the option of using the steam room, the sauna or the pool, prior to my massage. After a few minutes of some relaxation time, I was brought to my suite where I met my wonderful masseuse, and experienced one of the best massages I’ve ever had! It was relaxing, soothing and all of the knots that I had in my upper back (trust me, there are many) were suddenly released. It was such an amazing experience, and I wish I could go back. I didn’t want it to end!

The spa at the resort offers a variety of massages, facials, hair treatments manicures and pedicures, and is honestly one of the most serene places that I have ever been. Now that I am back in New York, I’m wishing I could be back at Yhi getting another massage. Wishful thinking!
