Stronger YOU Retreat
Reset, recharge, bond with like-minded women, and come back home stronger than ever! The Stronger YOU Retreat isn’t just about working out; it’s about making friends, letting go, trying new things, creating healthy habits working towards self-love, practicing gratitude, and finding joy in the simple things…nature, freedom, and girl time! There will be two workouts daily (for all levels), excursions both in the water and on land, as well as group dinners, and tons of free time. Our mission is that you leave a stronger version of yourself; mentally, physically, and emotionally with a whole new tribe of girls to lean on.
Each day we will have two workouts led by Jess Glazer. One will be focused on slower movements, including yoga, meditation, and stretching, while the other workout will be a HIIT (high intensity interval training) workout focusing on total body movements as well as partner and team challenges.
Each day of the retreat will present an opportunity for adventure ranging from the option to try a new food to going on an excursion with the group. Two activities that are part of the experience (but totally optional) are zip lining on an exciting canopy tour and sailing on an open-bar catamaran cruise at sunset (with snorkeling and whale watching!).
Each day will balance activities with free time to relax, reflect, or go explore on your own or with others. Our resort is right on the beach and has a beautiful pool so free time is yours to cherish! Other ideas are to get a spa treatment, sign up for an extra excursion, or explore the nearest town.
