Sheraton Orlando North- Public Servant Discount

We’re pleased to announce that we’ve negotiated a Public Servant discount with the Sheraton Orlando North for the remainder of 2019–possibly into 2020. In addition, the hefty discount in their rate agreement with us is offered year-round.

This property offers a quiet and relaxing location on the Northern end of Orlando. Aside from easy access to I-4 and all parks, the Sheraton North boasts a variety of nearby attractions.

NATURE

Firstly- Wekiwa Springs State Park, sure to entertain for a day of fun in nature with the family, is a few short miles from the hotel. Rent a kayak or canoe for endless exploration upstream, then swim in the crystal clear waters and underwater caves in Wekiwa Springs.

Round out the day with a picnic on the banks and this excursion is sure to exhaust the family and leave them with beautiful pictures, experiences, and memories.

Entertainment, Arts, and Fine Dining

In addition, Downtown Orlando is approximately 10 minutes from the hotel and is host to several attractions. These include the Orlando Science Center and Orlando Magic’s Stadium. Building up an appetite? Enjoy tapas bars like Santiago’s Bodega and the swanky nightlife and watering holes on Church Street.

Nurture

Overwhelmed with Orlando’s attractions? Spend a relaxing Saturday with the family at the Winter Park Farmer’s Market.

More Nurture

Kayaking and Farmer’s Marketing with the family can be mentally and physically draining. Therefore, a must for any guest of the Sheraton North is an evening visit to its very own An Tobar. Adjacent to the hotel’s lobby, An Tobar is the spirit of Ireland; every piece–including its 60-foot bar, booths, and tables–was constructed out of solid wood in Ireland, shipped over, and lovingly installed by a team of craftsmen. Enjoy traditional pub fare and Guinness on tap at the largest Irish pub in Central Florida, before stumbling up to your room to retire for the night.

Health and Wellness

After waking up in the morning feeling surprisingly great, you decide to hit the gym. Is there a gym a hotel, you say? Well yes, there is, and quite an impressive one!

Something for Everyone

Whatever it is you’re visiting Orlando for- the property sure to offer activities for everyone in the family, and the Public Servant Discount at the Sheraton Orlando North can’t be beat. We’d love to hear your feedback once you’ve visited. Make sure to check out our other Orlando properties as well- the Grand Orlando Resort at Celebration and the Doubletree by Hilton at Seaworld.

New Firefighter and Police Meal Plan Discount in Palm Beach

Ever tried a meal prep plan? Looking to lose some weight? Want to eat healthy throughout the week without spending hours prepping on Sunday? Fuel for Fit in Palm Beach is offering a discounted meal plan for Police and Firefighters.

Let’s be clear about something- shift work is NOT conducive to a healthy lifestyle. Whether your office is a patrol car or you’re running 19-22 calls per shift at Fort Lauderdale’s Sistrunk Express, finding to time to eat clean and portion-controlled meals can be very difficult. Even at a slower firehouse, stations meals may be tasty, but often unhealthy.

How can you track your calorie count and make sure you’re getting the right kind of calories? Look no further- Fuel for Fit is making it easy for first responders. Not only do they offer an incredible discount, but they make it extremely convenient.

No more having to select your meals a week in advance, risking missing the deadline and getting random unwanted meals. Fuel For Fit has a storefront with agreeable hours, grab and go, and pay-per-meal. The discount currently being offered to Police and Firefighters is $5/meal.

What I’ve found to work best is 2 trips a week- once on Sunday and again on Wednesday. I grab 2 meals per day (lunch and dinner), figuring out breakfast on my own. I found breakfast to be the easiest meal to handle, consistently feasting on eggs scrambled/sunny-side up or a nice helping of cottage cheese and fruit with granola. If you supplement with the right snacks in between, keeping your calorie count in the ideal range while leaving plenty of energy for the gym is easier than you’d think.

There is an adjustment period, where you’ll struggle with self control while your body acclimates to the portions. You’ll find yourself constantly opening the fridge in the fire station and staring at the contents or subconsciously veering your police car off into a nearby drive-thru. I’m guilty of these criminal acts myself. I tell you my friends- persevere! Nothing worth wanting is easy. Stick to the meal plan- take advantage of the amazing discount being offered to us.

Now for the important details- Fuel For Fit has 2 locations at this time, both in Palm Beach County, the furthest South location being off of Hypoluxo and Dixie Hwy. The next closest is in Palm Beach Gardens. They plan to open a third location in West Boca soon (which I’m very excited about). Click on the above link for hours and detailed location information.

Educators- we’ve asked the owners about offering the discounts to local Teachers and they seemed open to it. Just bring some sort of identification with you when you go in, and check with owner John to see if he will honor an Educator discount.

We hope you enjoy this pro-tip and are able to make use of it.
