Vita Boot Camp or Private Fitness Retreat?

Vita Boot Camp or Private Fitness Retreat?

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.

6 Reasons Why Going On Vacation Is Good For Your Health

6 Reasons Why Going On Vacation Is Good For Your Health

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. According to a survey, the average U.S. employee takes only half of their allotted vacation time. It’s not surprising that people are suffering from being overworked, overwhelmed and overrun.

Train For Your Game: Golf Fitness Retreat

Train For Your Game: Golf Fitness Retreat

Almost every golfer I’ve ever spoken to talks about how hard the game is. Usually, they’re mentioning wanting to improve their score. This conversation is a common thread running from the professional golfer down to the amateur or beginner golfer.

It’s a tough sport. It’s mentally and physically taxing. The interesting thing is that so many people don’t consider the game of golf to be an athletic sport. It’s seen more as a leisure sport requiring technical skill (which it does) rather than a sport requiring a good amount of exertion. Tiger Woods was one of the first to really take the fitness side seriously and in turn, many other professional golfers started taking notice. In the last few years, with the rise of younger golfers like Dustin Johnson, Ricky Fowler and Jordan Speith, there has been a little more attention to fitness and the need for sport specific training.

Vita Boot Camp Recap: Topics, Thoughts and Inspiration

Vita Boot Camp Recap: Topics, Thoughts and Inspiration

So while I won’t give away every single thing we talk about (you’ll have to attend a retreat to get ALL of the juicy info), I thought that recapping each week with the most important topics and inspiration would benefit many of you. So here goes writing my first retreat recap – hope you enjoy!
