Join Cathy Gonzalez for a tropical adventure in breathtaking Playa Uvita, Costa Rica. Escape the hustle of everyday life and experience a beautiful blended experience of adventure, activity, and relaxation.
We will kick off our mornings with daily Boot Camp overlooking beautiful views and feasting on meals with all fresh ingredients. Our days will be filled with hiking and seeing the amazing sights Costa Rica has to offer! The evenings will be relaxing and refreshing.
Our Boot Camp sessions will consist of high-intensity intervals using cardio (running/walking), functional movements, and strength training. Our strength training will be performed using whatever equipment or man-made materials are available to us. Cardio may be on the sand, on a trail, stairs or any other surface we can find. Functional movements are generally any and all bodyweight movements. Encompassing all these ideas . . . you will get an amazing workout every morning.
Let’s embrace the pure life in Costa Rica together!

We cannot emphasize more the importance of travel insurance. As we all know, especially as travelers, “life happens.” Whether it’s family, work, mother nature, or a change of heart, it is important to be prepared in case you need to unexpectedly change your travel plans. Often for less than $150, you can purchase a travel insurance policy and be protected in the event that you need to make a change or need to be covered financially prior to or during your trip.
We have partnered with two insurance companies: Trawick International and CSA Travel Insurance (available for U.S. Residents only). For Non-U.S. Residents this policy with Trawick insurance is available: Safe Travels Multi-National.
We encourage you to research the insurance company and policy that best meets your needs.
