"This was my first Re-Treat. And it certainly won’t be my last.
I had many emotions about attending a Retreat where I was totally immersed in learning about improving my health, both physically and mentally. Would I fit in? Could I keep up? Was I too old to keep up with younger attendees? How will I look? I discovered quickly how those fears were so unnecessary. Each of us were unique, had different goals, and different fears to conquer. And with the expert guidance of our trainers, we were all guided in positive ways to overcome them. This was a “retreat”, not a boot-camp. I loved that the schedule allowed for down time, reflection time, group fun time and sharing our goals. We all helped train each other through our own experiences.
I learned so much more than expected. Mostly that I am stronger than I thought; and that a well-rounded exercise plan is essential that includes a focus on functional movement and flexibility. And from our chef, Carrie Barga, I learned so much about healthy ways to improve the quality of the foods I prepare and what to look for when shopping. Thank you so much, Carrie!
All-in-all, the trainers are exceptional! We all had personal guidance, respect, and positive encouragement. Terry Barga and Omari Bernard have many years of combined experience and genuinely want to help each person achieve their goals, physically and mentally, and they do it with heart.
