For many customers signing up for fitness vacations, it’s an opportunity to break free from the sticky beginner phase of fitness that can be boring, un-motivating and disempowering. Yes, most definitely they can do it at home, and they don’t need to spend thousands of dollars for a week of wellness.
But need and want are two different things, and the women who join Whistler Fitness Vacations – one of Canada’s leading fitness vacations, located in B.C. are typically overworked executives, hard-working Moms, stressed out CEO’s and entrepreneurs who understand the value of full time focus. To immerse yourself in wellness for a week of eating right, living light, reconnecting with nature and exploring fun fitness classes while re-kindling your joy of cooking is truly a time effective way to get back into healthy habits.
Fitness vacations help you to find confidence in not only yourself, but also in your belief of what others around you can achieve. Challenge is addictive and when you see amazing women like you shaping up at incredibly fast pace, going from never-ever fitness programming to jogging their first 5km forest trail, you empower yourself with hope in how quickly life can change.
Choosing The Right Wellness Retreat
Finding fitness vacations for your needs, personality and activity preferences is important. When choosing a wellness retreat, be sure to look on their website for the following things:
– How long have they been in business for?
– Is your investment protected should things go wrong, for example, are they accredited with the Better Business Bureau, do they have a business license (and is it posted publicly so you can see if it is still valid), are they a member of any chamber of commerce or their cities tourism board. All these things require screening and often auditing which dodgy start-up businesses will most likely not bother with.
– Do they use paypal or a valid payment gateway – such as Beanstream, which requires an SSL certificate and security check.
– Google the names of their testimonials. Are they legit? At least half of the names should come up on google. Sometimes we change the names of guests at their request for confidentiality reasons when they are submitting a testimonial, but no more than 20% of the time. Most should come up on at least Facebook or LinkedIn.
Motivating, Inspiring and Educating You To Be Your Best
While every fitness program will help build your confidence (that’s just what getting in shape does) not every fitness program will empower you to continue the journey without your fitness instructor. Sustainable fitness is the thing that we’re best known for!
At Whistler Fitness Vacations, beginner exercisers enjoy daily learning through low-impact programming including hiking, power walking, gently learn-to-run sessions, water workouts, fun fitness classes, strength training, stretching and alpine exploring in one of the most geographically beautiful places in Canada.
Confidence is that incredible feeling you get when you realize that you worked for the goal that you achieved. We take pride in showing you the ropes, and find JOY in that final high-five at the end of your stay when you realize that you’ve “got this!”
This list is right on. When I went to my weight loss camp last year (Fit Farm – it’s an all-inclusive fitness boot camp in Nashville, TN), I actually demanded to talk to their head trainer and got his certifications. His name was A.J. and after talking with him twice on the phone, that’s when I finally decided on them. I learned a lot from him about these types of camps in general, including the fact that a lot of them simply borrow space from an adjoining hotel (including their weight room or fitness room), and so you end up just being crammed in there with the general public, in stead of having a truly private training environment. The other thing he show me was the menu at several actual weight loss camp facilities – not sure how he got his hands on them, but I think he’d known people that worked for them,… anyway – one of the camps actually served alcohol! LOL. Like you can hope to lose weight while your drinking a Margarita at night! So yeah. totally agree with this article,.. the devil is always in the details.
I agree with you 100% on the alcohol topic! My wife and I always try to squeeze in some type of fitness vacation or fitness bootcamp each year to get back in shape together. We like to try out different places and I gotta say when we found out Fit Farm didn’t serve alcohol on site, we pretty much made the decision to go there. It was the best fitness bootcamp we’ve ever had in a while. What made the difference is their Facebook community because I could see real people talking about their past experiences at the farm. Recently they started adding special events to their packages that gear towards the vacation and bucket list side of things like scuba diving, dancing classes, sky diving etc. I’m pretty much booked for this year but I’m definitely considering going back next year!
