Pool workouts or water workouts are awesome for so many reasons. As many of you know, they are very low impact making these this type of fitness great for those who are suffering from injury, joint pain or just like the feeling of no impact workouts for their body. Pool workouts are also great for cross training for any type of sport including professional, amateur and leisure sports. They’re also great to mix up workouts and keep things fresh and new.Read More
Most of our guests sign up for one of our fitness retreats to experience new workouts, get motivated and inspired and challenge themselves in a way they haven’t before. Tabata is a particularly challenging interval format and can be used in many different ways. It can be used for cardio, weights, core – you name it. It’s a form of HIIT (high intensity interval training). Like HIIT, Tabata exhausts the body and produces an “after burn” which means your body will burn calories at a higher rate for a longer period of time after your workout. To put it simply, your metabolism will be elevated slightly for minutes to hours after your workout – a HUGE win!!Read More
One of the things I love the most about bodyweight workouts is that you can do them anywhere. So whether you’re at home, on the road, at a local park or a friend’s house, you can do these anytime. No equipment needed (or very little).
I feel like our retreat guests are always fretting over getting to the gym. Well, most of the people I talk to regarding health and fitness have a common issue – “It’s just so hard to get to the gym most of the time”. Let’s face it, we’re all living in a time starved world. Between work, family, friends, vacation, general life duties and anything else in-between, it’s hard to find time for yourself.Read More
Ah…cardio! Love it or hate it? I actually like cardio – intense cardio. I like sweating out my impurities and feeling like I’ve worked really hard. I like challenging my body and tracking results so I can see my progress. I like feeling that exhausted – that happy goodness that comes with producing endorphins. Cardio might not be your favorite though, which is why I created this workout. It only takes 30 minutes and you’re done!Read More

Interval training has gained a huge amount of steam over the last several years. It may seem complicated but interval training is simply alternating short periods of intense exercise with periods of less intense activity or “active rest” (walking, marching in place or step touching are examples of active rest). Interval workouts are really very easy to incorporate and don’t necessarily include complicated movements either.Read More
The treadmill is probably one of the most used pieces of equipment in gyms across America. They’re a staple. The thing about treadmills is that they’re easy to use and no matter the brand, they’re not complicated to figure out. Whether you love the treadmill (or love to hate it) because it’s easy to use or because it’s great for whether prohibitive activity, you don’t just have to walk or run on the treadmill. Mixing up your movements can actually be really fun and provide a whole new workout on the “tready”.Read More
