A healthy and active 365fitt experience!

In January a group of ladies from across the nation met for a week-long retreat on Captiva Island, Florida to experience 365fitt‘s annual healthy active living trip where I assisted as a trainer/coach. Pedometers were provided as an incentive to reach 10,000 steps per day. With access to paddle boarding and kayaking out the back door of our gorgeous estate, Sea Oats, and cycling and beach walking out the front, it was easy to do. In addition to our outdoor activities, we offered cardio and strength training classes (that I instructed) as well as yoga and pelvic-core classes. Our bellies were filled with easy-to-prepare nutritious dishes, our minds were freed of the stress of daily living and our bodies received regular doses of physical activity. For some it was a new experience and for others a way to recharge. Regardless, we embraced the sunshine and left with a warm glow on our skin and in our hearts. Does this experience sound like one you would enjoy? Ask me about next year’s trip!

Thanks to Jennifer Brill and Kathy Kent for sharing their photos.
