We rang in the new year with 5 weeks of giveaways to make 2022 your best year yet
New year, new you—except this time, we were here to help you make it happen! Starting in January, the Rosslyn BID hosted five weeks of fun giveaways that celebrated your emotional, physical and mental wellness. Beginning on Jan. 3, we highlighted Rosslyn restaurants, businesses, and retailers to help you achieve your New Year’s resolutions—or, as we like to call them, Rossolutions!
Throughout the month, you let us know what your Rossolutions were to kick off 2022! Participants were entered to win raffles with corresponding prizes each week to kickstart their mission to achieve their goals this year. Raffles included:
January 3-7: Healthy Eating
January 10-14: Physical Wellness
January 17-21: New Year, New Doo
January 24-28: Mental Wellness
January 31-February 4: Outdoor Wellness
Winners were selected weekly and notified via the email address provided in the Google form. Congratulations to our winners!
Week 1 | Healthy Eating | January 3-7
We were here to help you start the year off on the right foot with some lighter menu options and balance out all the baked brie and festive cocktails from the holidays with these ideas for delicious, healthy fare in the neighborhood.
Your options include gourmet, hand-crafted sandwiches from Ahra Cafe; fresh, nutrient-rich Mediterranean cuisine from The Simple Greek; customizable plates and bowls from CAVA; and mouthwatering, creative salads from Chopt.
Week 2 | Physical Wellness | January 10-14
You made this year the fresh start you’ve been waiting for with a visit to one of Rosslyn’s businesses dedicated to helping you look (and feel) your best! These businesses were ready to help you revitalize your appearance, or address any of your physical wellness needs that you’ve been putting off—until the new year!
Look good, feel good, right? Did you head into the new year with the fresh cut, daring style you’ve always wanted (purple highlights, anyone?) or a fresh set of nails? These Rosslyn salons are neighborhood staples that were ready to bring you into 2022.
This year, after another successful iteration of Rosslyn’s O2: Outdoor Office, we learned the benefits of the hybrid work-from-home environment. As we've enter another year balancing working from home, in-office and hybrid environments, we wanted to help you continue to prioritize your mental
wellness in the new year. Particularly as it comes to building healthy relationships with food, exercise, and practicing self-care.
The BID once again partnered with Rosslyn-based nonprofit Rock Recovery to host a webinar that focused on mindful living and finding lifestyle balance. On Tuesday, Jan. 25 at 12 p.m., experts Christie and Kristyn offered self-care tips and strategies as they guided us through the value of caring for both your physical and mental well-being. We hope you joined us for this free discussion! Participants were entered into a raffle for one of two $25 gift cards to enjoy the healthy options at Assembly, Ahra Cafe, The Simple Greek, Chopt, or CAVA.
As a bonus, we offered four passes for you and your friends to switch up your workspaces and enjoy a day at WeWork, located at 1201 Wilson Blvd. We also included a $100 gift card to enjoy at the Assembly food hall across the street for lunch or happy hour! Will your productivity level reach new heights? The winner was able to choose a date in February for a workday surrounded by monumental views.
Week 5 | Outdoor Wellness | January 31-February 4
With nearly 50 miles of hiking and biking trails, and 50+ acres of open park space, Rosslyn is ideal for outdoor wellness (we are in “America’s Fittest City”, after all!). This year, combine your fitness resolutions with a commitment to getting outdoors.
In addition to all of the fitness and wellness activities available in the neighborhood, a couple of Rosslyn’s gyms also offer workouts and spaces to help you feel the burn while you enjoy the outdoors—including the outdoor spin classes offered at Rosslyn’s Good Sweat Studio and the turf terrace at the new, state-of-the-art Gold’s Gym.
We were here to help kickstart your fitness journey, with all the mental and physical benefits of an outdoor workout with a Rosslyn Trike giveaway! If you found us at Central Place Plaza on Thursday, Feb. 17*, you saw ambassadors will be giving out your choice of Rosslyn branded wrist sweatband or neck gaiter. These will definitely keep you warm and prepared for a winter workout!
As a bonus, when you visit the Rosslyn Trike, you can enter our raffle for a premium fitness swag bag! This package will include a Rosslyn-branded tumbler, a set of purple resistance bands and purple yoga mat. Must attend this Thursday's Rosslyn Trike Giveaway to enter the raffle.
