One of the great things about our retreat is that we have so many interesting people coming each week. They come from all over the country (and the world) and come together because of some like minded views. Most people are here to jumpstart their healthy habits again, improve their fitness level, de-stress and bump their weight loss up a notch. It’s a group that’s usually diverse but they’re all looking to get healthier and feel better. Out of this culture comes many different conversations about health, nutrition, fitness and wellness. I write these recaps from time to time to let you in on the topics covered because I’m sure many of you out there have some of the same questions. In addition, it gives those that are interested in one of our fitness getaways the chance to get a glimpse of the inner workings of our programs.Read More

In addition, we’ve got a few other updates including our June retreat sale, new Vita Quick Assessment and additional fitness sessions. Keep reading to find out the scoop!Read More
When it comes to weight loss, healthy habits and skills are the name of the game. We believe it’s not only what you eat but how you eat.

Maybe you need to change what you eat but maybe you need to simply tweak a few of your daily patterns to feel and look your best — either way, we’ll help you figure out the changes that need to be made.Read More
If you’re reading this blog post, you’re most likely thinking about a visit to Vita Vie Retreat for one of our wellness getaways. First of all, thank you for considering us! I know it’s a big decision and you want to make sure you end up at the right retreat for you. One of the biggest questions that we get when people call or email to inquire about our programs is: “Should I do the Vita Boot Camp or a Private Fitness Retreat?” They’re both fantastic programs (but you knew I’d say that because I’m writing this blog post). They’re very different though and truthfully, there’s a reason that they are different - to be able to serve people and their needs.Read More

Going on vacation always seems like the solution to many problems. We dream of taking a trip. Often times though, we tell ourselves that we just don’t have enough time to go on vacation. There is too much to do at home or at work. Yet, many of us are consistently stressed out, frustrated by long hours or life’s craziness.
