HIIT & SUN Fitness Retreat
When Mat and Diana sat down to build out this retreat, they wanted to make sure that the workouts would be challenging, but fun and the adventures would be entertaining and exciting. The trip is an immersion into Barbados culture - the food and the experience is as authentic to the island as possible. All while working out, having fun and relaxing! Come sweat, work out, and eat at one of the most special islands in the Caribbean with an awesome pair of fitness professionals!
The fitness classes will be similar to what Diana and Mat teach on their own in NYC today - a bootcamp style class with intervals and strength incorporated. Additionally, they will have recovery workouts scattered in between to make sure you feel set for the activities of the day!
Working out is only half the fun on this Barbados adventure. We'll be joined by special guest George Griffith (founder of Barbados' top fitness facility, Surfside Wellness) to lead us on two beautiful hikes during our stay, to experience the island like a local! Other activities include a catamaran sail with snorkeling over ship wrecks, a visit to Oistin's Fish Fry, detoxing on the beach, and a celebratory BBQ with fresh, healthy food!
Diana and Mat met in Boston at a gym and discovered their common passion for fitness. Fast forward to today, they have created Stronger With Time - a brand that blends both of their health and wellness experiences and expertise into one. They work together to push one another as well as those around them for an unforgettable experience. Their goal is to change as many people's lives as possible.
