Tampa, FL (PRWEB) May 17, 2011
Getaway Fitness, Inc., a fitness vacation company based out of Tampa, Florida was recently featured on an episode of syndicated show The Doctors. The Doctors and the Dr. Phil show challenged viewers this past season to lose weight using the 17-Day Diet Program created by Dr. Mike Moreno, a San Diego based physician. Contestants from both shows competed for awards based upon which team and which individual team member achieved the most weight loss within each of the four cycles and the overall competition. In cycle two, Bekki Lindenberger of Windemere, FL and Clint Watson of Irvine, CA were the individual team winners and each received a six night all-inclusive fitness vacation for themselves and a guest courtesy of Getaway Fitness.
Getaway Fitness provides luxury boot camp vacations in partnership with resorts such as the Don Cesar Beach Resort in St. Pete Beach, Florida and the Hotel Del Coronado, in San Diego, CA. The program combines luxury hotel accommodations, healthy gourmet meals, nutritional education and intensive fitness training comprised of challenging and diverse activities.
The training professionals at Getaway Fitness help guests meet their fitness and weight loss goals while at the program and also provide them with the tools to allow them to continue their progress once they return home. Founder Maria Walker shares " We were very pleased to be asked to be a part of this program. The Doctors show is a great resource for people searching for information and advice on how to achieve better health. We are excited about the opportunity to assist Bekki and Clint in reaching their goals. We feel their time with us will not only be a memorable experience for them, it will also empower them to have the long term success they desire."
The Getaway Fitness program features activties such as beach boot camps, biking, pliates, kayaking, kickboxing and is a structured day of about 5 to 6 hours of fitness. "It's a biggest loser type workout schedule but with the luxury atmosphere to relax in at the end of each day. Guests have time at the end of each day to enjoy the spa, the beach and the resort to rejuvinate themselves."
For those that might be nervous about a "boot camp vacation" Walker states, " Our expert training staff encourage guests and use positive motivation to get results and don't "bark" drills at them as is often the impression when one thinks a boot camp environment. Guests that choose our program are looking for the structure we offer and the challenge provided by our intense workouts, but they still want the pampering as the reward and our host resorts provide just that".
Getaway Fitness vacations are set on the sugar sand beaches of St. Petersburg, Florida. Activities take place at the resort as well as in the St Pete Beach area which allows guests to enjoy the local ambiance. Typical participants in the Getaway Fitness program are women, men, couples, girlfriends on a getaway. Workouts are customized for each guest's fitness level.
Fitness vacation packages start at $1,395 per person. All-inclusive packages are available for several days up to several weeks at either the Florida or California location.
