New company injects fitness into exotic luxury retreats

SARASOTA, Fla., March 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Two young businesswomen have found a way to combine their passion for travel and healthy lifestyles through a brand-new venture, luxeFIT. The company offers week-long luxury fitness retreats to exotic destinations, arranging workout sessions and activities, nutritious cuisine prepared by a private chef and opportunities for socializing and fun – all in a luxurious private beachfront estate setting.

LuxeFIT blends fitness, adventure and nutrition with the opportunity to explore new and exciting destinations worldwide. The first retreat is slated for April 30 – May 6, in Barbados. Activities will include yoga, paddle boarding, snorkeling, surfing and water-skiing, with numerous social opportunities – as well as free time – throughout.

Excursions will be available to explore Harrison’s Caves, tour Mt. Gay Rum Distillery, shop in Holetown and more.

“Our guests will work hard, sweat it out every day, meet like-minded people and have fun in some of the most beautiful places on earth!” said luxeFIT co-founder Loren Mayo. “Our retreats aim to be a place where guests feast on delicious, healthy cuisine, exercise in spirited and challenging sessions with top trainers, experience the sights and sounds of the area and, ultimately, return home looking and feeling better than when they left.”

Just as food typically plays a central role in any travel experience, healthy eating is at the core of a luxeFIT adventure. One of the founding principles of luxeFIT is to provide wholesome, delectable, locally produced meals for guests to enjoy.  The accommodations feature a private chef, who will offer meals that meet guests’ nutritional needs, while taking great care to develop menus reflecting the culture of the destination. Every meal will have vegetarian/vegan, gluten-free and other options.

Business partners Loren Mayo of Sarasota and Holly Morris of New York City at the University of Central Florida. Mayo’s career is rooted in journalism and marketing. Morris worked in hospitality management before making a career change to human resources. Both, however, share a passion for fitness, healthy eating and exotic travel. The two launched luxeFIT in November 2016, engaging Mia Duval, a fitness instructor at OrangeTheory in Sarasota, FL, as head trainer for the venture.

Beyond the Barbados retreat, the duo is exploring additional options in the Caribbean and Mexico. “From invigorating workouts to gourmet fare, this program is designed to nourish and energize our guests on every level, offering the perfect blend of cardio, rest and relaxation,” said Morris. “It’s paradise with a purpose – a better, more balanced you, in less than a week!”

Retreats are all-inclusive – all but airfare is included. Guests will enjoy six-nights in either a 5-Star villa or luxury condo, freshly prepared meals with an emphasis on local cuisine, fitness and yoga sessions, the ability to work out with a first-rate fitness instructor and round-trip transportation to group activities.
