Meet Our Founder, Stacy Schwartz
I’m Stacy, a born-and-raised Manhattanite. I have always had a love for seeing the world and keeping active while doing it, but I never imagined I would end up making a career out of it!
The dream of Ketanga started when I was trying to book a vacation a few years ago. I wanted to incorporate fitness (particularly boxing and high-intensity interval training) into my trip but was unable to find anything that seemed like a fit.
Fast forward to 2014 when I quit my 'Corporate America' job to travel the world for 100 days by myself. (Scary? yes! Best decision ever? yes!) I was able to travel the way I wanted and see the sights while being active through bike tours, horseback riding, jogging through neighborhoods, dropping into local gym classes, and even flying a 2-person glider plane (ok, maybe that's not technically active but my heart rate was higher than in ANY boot camp class I've taken)!
When I returned home, it clicked. There was something special about crafting a vacation that combined the perfect amount of fitness, adventure, and relaxation into one trip. It was then only a matter of time before Ketanga Fitness Retreats was born!
