“The F.I.T. Retreat was AMAZING! I came back feeling centered and extremely relaxed, which is not an easy feat for me to achieve! I cannot say enough about all the amazing food that Gina prepared for us. Everything was fresh and healthy!! Morning yoga on the porch, hikes, followed by other outdoor activities. Overall was a great expereince.
Gina is a gifted leader and host. She has a way of making everyone feel taken care of and always has a warm, welcoming smile on her face. I loved this retreat so much, that I am booked for Mexico this February on the Women’s Retreat!”
— Client and Member Rita D.S.
“What an awesome experience! The location wasn’t too far, yet the setting was so peaceful and seemed far removed from all the pressures of home. The yoga and fitness was fantastic, as always. The food was phenomenal!! Can’t praise Gina enough on her culinary skills. Connecting with new friends and getting to know old friends better. It is an experience you cannot Miss!”
— Client and Member Paula K.
“It was truly wonderful and I loved getting to know everyone better and meeting the new guests, Kathryn and Cyndi. Thank you Gina for all you do ... you go above and beyond what you need to do ...both at Free Style and on these great excursions. I consider myself so lucky for having found your studio and staying with the program. You have taught me so much about fitness and food. I wish only that I met you earlier. Thanks again.”
— C. Levine Dedicated Client and Member
“Words cannot express the gratitude I feel for having met you and all of the Freestyle Family! The genuine love you have for your “students”, friends and family is inspirational. Having been on this journey with you for the past few years, I can come to admire your strength and after having spent some quality personal time with you and the ladies, that admiration has only grown exponentially! Thank you for sharing your gifts, talents and time with us and for encouraging me to step away without guilt or resentment to regroup and rest. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed getting to know everyone better and I was amazed at how well we all got along! 10 women in a house can be a difficult place to live in but everyone was a joy to be around. I look forward to the next adventure and pool party! Margaritas are a must”
— Dedicated Member, Mary C
For the first time in my life I let go of my own self esteem issues. Although I did my fair share of body bashing, I honestly didn’t give a rats butt who saw me…by day two I was wearing less makeup and less bathing suit!! Lol Not what u think people..in all seriousness it was truly a magical experience for my mind, body and soul..something about Gods creation joining us all together under the daily sunrises and sunsets, while listening to the roaring “whisper” of the crashing waves, and feeling the gentle breeze which quickly awakened our senses to the smell of the beach. Let’s never forget the star gazing we experienced from the roof top!!! Those millions of gorgeous stars which tells so many stories of our world long before we were created!
Thank you Gina for my amazing experience, all your hard work and dedication to the retreat, the delicious food and for sacrificing your family to do this for me!!! Costa Rica 2019!! God willing!
