The Asheville Fitness Retreat was a fantastic weekend! Emily and her team did an amazing job planning just the right blend of exercise and relaxation, all in beautiful settings with fabulous food. They even provided goody bags of healthy snacks and fabulous products! We did so many things, yet I never felt rushed, thanks to the relaxed atmosphere that was established. I loved trying new experiences like the sound healing session at Skinny Beats and the foot soak and massage at Wake Foot Sanctuary, as well as favorite activities like meditation and hiking in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Even though I had not met the other retreat participants before the weekend, I felt comfortable with them right away. Everyone was super supportive of one another. I came home from the retreat feeling refreshed, renewed, and energized. Count me in for future retreats!
The fitness industry is a community that supports one another out by working together to help each other grow. I learned this when I met Emily in the early months of opening my gym, CoreStrong. From the moment I met her and learned about her mission, we instantly bonded. Her passion for encouraging people to get involved and learn about all this city has to offer is contagious. I couldn’t wait to work with her. She asked if I would be involved in her first Fit Day and I didn’t hesitate to say yes. The energy was amazing. Every detail was taken care of- from transportation, healthy food throughout the day, an awesome variety of workouts and happy hour at the gym. Every participant was ecstatic with the day. This is why every time she asks me to be involved in her events I say YES! I had new clients walk through the door and she has repeat customers for each event. Since the Fit Days, Emily and I have collaborated on several events giving the gift of fitness to young women, including our annual Mother/Daughter Valentine’s Day workout. What I love about working with Emily is that she is not only compassionate and empathetic, but she is also determined to make a change in peoples’ lives and build up our growing fitness community. It’s been such an honor to work with her and I am even luckier to call her my friend.
The weekend retreat in Asheville, NC planned and hosted by Emily was perfect in every way! It was just what my body, mind, and soul needed....fresh air, exercise, music, relaxation, good food and friendship. A perfect getaway. From the fresh flowers by my bed to the delicious and healthy food provided...no detail was overlooked. Can’t wait for the next weekend retreat! Many thanks to Emily and her team!
Thank you for creating such a wonderful birthday celebration! I cannot tell you how perfect it was from start to finish! I feel so blessed and loved seeing your gift for health and wellness in people!
I’ve attended a few of Emily’s Fit Day events and they are always super fun! She makes everyone feel so welcome and relaxed as we try new fitness experiences. Emily thinks of everything and creates events with excellence. The food and drinks, the instructors, the gifts, everything is carefully considered, which makes me feel pampered, even though I’m sweating!! I’ve been able to try some new things I never thought I would do and I’ve enjoyed every experience.
