Strive for Strength Retreat
Join Coach Chelsea Aguiar on a five-day fitness and adventure getaway in Costa Rica! We’ll push ourselves outside our comfort zones through high intensity workouts, a morning surf lesson and zip-lining through the jungle. Together we’ll challenge the body, quiet the mind, and feed our adventurous spirits!
We will start and close each day with a group workout. Mornings will be dedicated to strength, and HIIT-inspired circuits training. What is to be expected from these sessions?
In the evenings we will slow things down for workout #2. We will focus on joint mobility, trigger point techniques, stability training, stretching, and core work. Each of these classes is designed to promote efficient recovery from the days activities.
After each morning's workout, we will enjoy breakfast overlooking the stunning Tamarindo beaches. Afternoons will be spent on jungle excursions or simply lounging by the pool or ocean. Group activities include:
Meet Coach Chelsea Aguiar
Raised in Santa Fe, NM, Chelsea's love for physicality and athleticism began at the National Dance Institute of New Mexico where she studied Ballet, Jazz, Tap, and Modern dance for 13 years. Before graduating high school, she performed on stages across the U.S. including City Center in New York and the White House.
She attended college at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts as a contemporary dance major until a reconstructive hip surgery in 2009. 9 months later, she found herself 30lbs overweight, out of shape, and unhappy. In 2010 she began training at a kettlebell studio (Dynamic Fitness, Santa Fe, NM) and a new passion was found.
Through "hardstyle" kettlebell training Chelsea became stronger and healthier than she'd ever been. Upon moving to NYC in 2011 she began working at Equinox, where she spent 3 years as a top producing personal trainer. In February of 2014 she left Equinox to found Athaya Fitness. Her experience with dance, Pilates, yoga,kettlebells, Olympic weightlifting, injury rehabilitation, and bodybuilding has inspired her to develop a unique method of training that works for all levels of fitness and is applicable to any goal.
