Who doesn’t love a beach vacation? Whether you’re going on a holiday break or just getting out of town to take a break from the cold weather, the beach is a favorite place to visit for so many people.

8 Reasons To Go On A Fitness Vacation

8 Reasons To Go On A Fitness Vacation

One of the reasons I created Vita Vie Retreat, over 12 years ago, was so that I could build an environment where people could truly focus on themselves. I had been doing personal training and nutrition coaching for about 6 years and one of my biggest complaints was that my clients couldn’t focus on themselves. We would be in the middle of a training session and a client would reach to answer a phone call or a text (and way back in the day, it was a pager). It just seemed like we were treading water rather than swimming through the waves.

And while this appealed to me, I also wanted to create an environment where I would still work with clients rather than just owning an operation and shuffling people in and out. Training and coaching are my passion and actually participating in that work is really important to me. So, I decided to create a small version of the health spa so I could accomplish my goals – to form a fitness vacation where people could get away and focus on themselves as well as be able to do the coaching. And here we are in 2018 with Vita Vie Retreat!
