To provide the best experience for fitness and food enthusiasts alike while exploring new locations and living life outdoors.
We discovered our love for retreat several years back when we went on our first over seas adventure with some of the most phenomenal movers on the planet. We surfed in the morning, mind you, we had NEVER been on surfboards before, ate together, explored the landscape, worked out and practiced yoga at sunset. That one retreat changed the game for us and we have been seeking that adventure and connection ever since. We came back refreshed, strong and clear. Not to mention, we made friends from around the globe. We want to provide our friends, families and friends we haven't met yet, the same intimate experience we had over and over, only in different locations.
We are based in Upstate NY, surrounded by the beautiful Adirondack Mountains and not far from The Catskill Mountains. The Catskills are a quick 1 hour trip from NYC and away from the hustle, noise and stimulation of the city that never sleeps. Offering retreats throughout the Summer months, in the Catskills and Adirondacks has allowed us to grow outside our Fitness Studio that we operate in Albany NY. We have access to the great Lake George, The Finger Lakes, and beautiful Vermont is right in our backyard.
Nutrition is at the helm of everything we do. Everyday, you can be sure that the food you are eating, has been handpicked by the chef, responsibly raised, local and organic when available. Her 25 years of experience in the restaurant industry, cooking along side top chefs, coupled with her 15 years in the fitness and nutrition field, has given her a unique advantage. She has worked with hundreds of private clients, some for weight loss, others to help build a healthier relationship with food, diabetes patients, fitness competitors and everyone in between. Her passion for sharing her knowledge and experience is evident the minute you meet her.

The best part about retreating with us, is we tackle obstacles that may be blocking your growth, together. We keep our groups small in size, only 8-10 people, to ensure we are at the ready to take care of all of your needs.
From our first night together, we enjoy family style dinners to get to know each other and discuss itinerary for following day. Each day brings a new adventure and opportunity to connect with the world around you.
