Discipline & Strengthen the Mind
This 6 week program starts and ends with YOU. Although you will be a part of a group and have a coach accessible once the program begins, you must commit and dedicate your time and energy to transforming yourself - inside & out.
Do you often start workout programs and not finish? Start a new diet and quit after a couple of days?
There is empowerment in finding consistency & creating habits that are positive to your mental and physical self. It is with your coach and others that you will realize your strength & be able to enjoy the fruits of your labor during week 6 (in Costa Rica!) after you've trained your mind to become your strongest tool.
Condition & Train the Body
You will prep for your final week in Costa Rica with 5 weeks of preset workouts which will be sent one week before the program begins (on May 26, 2023) . These workouts will consist of body weight & endurance training (with the option to add in weights.)
In addition to the physical conditioning, a nutritious diet & proper water intake is a must! Results will only show if you are putting the right fuel in your body.
Your program packet will include a nutrition guide and sample meal plans/shopping list. Your coach will assist you with any additional questions you have, but It is recommended to speak to a nutritionist if you need specific dietary information because of a health condition or a wellness objective.
*You should consult a physician before starting any diet or exercise program. If you choose to follow our 6 week program without consulting your physician, you are doing so at your own risk.*
Reconnect and Renew the Spirit
Simply being in an environment so pure and fresh evokes a sense of calmness & renewal.
Our cabins do not include televisions and we recommend disconnecting from your electronic devices to further benefit your mental health. For those that need to stay connected, it's recommended to limit your usage.
Through active recovery sessions, yoga inspired warm ups & cool downs, meditation and nature walks through the jungle & beach - you will be surrounded by a beauty like no other and feel that through your whole essence. Pura Vida.
You will be given daily tasks - time that you must set aside to reflect within, on your journey throughout the program and how you plan to continue your journey long term.

Total Resistance Exercise
High Intensity Interval Training
T.R.X. is a full body workout designed to challenge you by using your own bodyweight + gravity as resistance. With the aid of straps to increase or decrease the amount of weight in each movement, it is a great tool to build strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, core and joint stability.
H.I.I.T workouts will be shorter in duration & are designed for metabolic conditioning by using timed intervals of exercises + short rest periods. H.I.I.T can help to decrease body fat, increase strength and endurance, and improve health outcomes.
Designed to be a fun, stress relieving full body workout, kickboxing will consist of fun combos taught by the coach,
balance drills, coordination, flexibility and endurance.
Bootcamp sessions will include different elements of the training program that students have been doing throughout the 5 weeks. From endurance sessions, sprints, jogs, beach workouts, burn out drills, endurance testing, strength & conditioning testing & more.
All sessions will begin with a stretch & warm up and finish with cool down stretches.
