Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) February 23, 2012
Following a growing travel industry trend of marketing to identifiable communities, My Destination Wellness, a customized fitness vacation provider affiliated with Funjet Vacations, announced its first women’s wellness retreat.
“More and more women are showing interest in a fitness environment shared with other women, and we’re also seeing a trend in women vacationing together,” said My Destination Wellness creator and trainer David Pritchard. “Our fitness vacation programs were the perfect model for this type of a group.”
The retreat will take place October 6-11, 2012, at El Dorado Royale by Karisma, a five-star resort in Riviera Maya, Mexico. The five-day all-inclusive program is priced at $1,199 per person based on double occupancy, not including roundtrip airfare to Cancun. Services include beachside exercise classes, personal training sessions and healthy meals prepared with organic produce grown on property – all guided by individual “Wellness Concierges.” Programs are designed to help travelers remove the distractions they experience at home, reach their fitness goals, and also have a great vacation.
“I believe that when people are truly enjoying their surroundings they realize they want those surroundings to last,” Pritchard says. “Designing a wellness plan while you are on vacation allows you to put the focus on yourself so that you have the tools to be successful once you go home.”
Pritchard added that exercise groups, such as yoga, biking and running clubs, provide great motivation and support for individuals trying to stay on track with health and fitness.
“When you’re surrounded by other people with common backgrounds and experiences who are trying to overcome their challenges and achieve their goals, there’s a sense of camaraderie and support, which is one of the appeals of our women’s retreat.”
A leader in the health and fitness industry for the last 20 years, David Pritchard has trained professional athletes, Olympians, and top-level executives. He is certified by the American Council on Exercise and the National Strength and Conditioning Association. His wellness philosophy incorporates exercise, strengthening mind and body, creating a lifelong eating plan and creating healthy lifestyle changes for each individual, no matter what fitness level.
My Destination Wellness plans to offer additional retreats in the future, including a gay men’s group and a program for ages 60+.
