CU in the Keys 2021

Transform Your Life with Time for You in 5 Days 

A Fitness and Self-Care Retreat Experience

Suite Dreams Inn by the Beach

Hold My Spot!

Picture this for YOU!

Imagine waking up in a beautiful paradise. 

A tropical breeze blowing.  Palm trees outside your suite. Steps away from the beaches of Key West, where you can feel the sand in your toes and hear the waves crashing on the shore.  

The sun is out, and you feel the warmth on your face, and feel your energy levels rising.

Amazing delicious food and juices await you at a private pool oasis next door, where you settle in for your intention check  and easy activity plan.  

The day is yours. 

You’ve left the ‘hustle and bustle’ of your everyday life behind to join us in this beautiful tropical ‘happy spot’ paradise.  

You’re ready to hit the ‘RESET’ button and start NEW for YOU. 

You’re ready for transformative change. 

Look, you have accomplished MUCH in your life to be proud of.  

You’ve been successful.  

But you have a hard time making yourself, your fitness, and your self-care a priority.  In fact, it’s a real struggle. 

You long to feel young and vibrant again.  Energetic.  And to feel like you can nurture yourself in addition to all that is in your world.  

But you feel like adding one more thing to your plate would send you over the edge. 

We often think that slowing down is the LAST THING we can do when our lives are so full.  You don’t want to lose the feeling of accomplishment that you have built for yourself, but you know that you must turn down the pressure cooker you live in.  

You know it because at the end of the day you are wiped out. Exhausted. The last thing you want is to tackle a fitness program--you just not sure if you can stick with it.  You know you need it.  But how do I work it in? How do I stay committed to myself? 

You desperately want to find some normalcy in your daily routine so you can find yourself again.  

You crave spaciousness, peace and the feeling you have it ALL in your life.  

After all, you want to ENJOY your life.  So you can energetically and excitedly say YES to all the things you desire to do with your family and your loved ones--the people that mean the most to you.

Guess what? 

What you desire for you is NOT a fantasy!

Are you inspired and excited?

"My work schedule is long hours, often stretching into the night.  I had convinced myself that it was just too hard to work time in for me and still attend to all my responsibilities.  This retreat completely changed what I thought about HOW I can not just ensure I get time for me, but that I actually CAN do it.  I can’t thank you enough for helping me get my life back!"

- Colleen, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

What if you thought you could learn a routine that helps you look after yourself in the best way possible--a day to day schedule that you can build belief in that adapts to your changing body and busy lifestyle, so you CAN have it all?

  • Feel young and vibrant again?
  • Realize your true strength?
  • Raise your energy levels so you don’t hesitate to say YES to doing things that excite you?
  • Ditch the limiting beliefs that are holding you back and replace them with thoughts that SERVE you and your new plan for you?

Best of all, you can overcome the feelings of shame and guilt you feel when you have trouble prioritizing yourself and realize that you CAN have it all.

It’s difficult to get time for you. And it’s time to change that, once and for all.

Join us for our May 2021 Retreat in Key West and ‘Transform your Life with Time for You’!

This is the retreat you absolutely can NOT miss!

A once in a lifetime experience that is made for you!

Transform Your Life with Time for You!

"I have work responsibilities in two different cities and spend time each week traveling--plus hold down a household.  Getting time in for me to take care of myself is just non-existent most days. Attending this retreat helped me completely change my mindset around what truly IS possible for me. Not only did the time we spend doing workouts and meditation prove to be meaningful for me on many levels, but I feel completely recharged and rejuvenated.  I'm more motivated than ever to make time for myself.  Thank you, Alison!"

- Sharon, St. Petersburg, FL and Raleigh, NC

Kate Testimonial

"As a Type 1 Diabetic, I know I need to ensure I get regular exercise and self-care on a daily basis. As a former full-time fitness instructor, I used to be able to do that. Working a demanding job and taking care of my family keeps me on the go and I struggle with keeping my fitness in check. I knew I needed a change and a reset--and this retreat was a game-changer for me. I am working on the changes Alison helped me navigate in Key West, and can already see a difference in my energy, and my insulin levels are better managed too. I feel like I can be a better role model and enjoy my life. So much love for this! Thank you! Can’t wait to attend this next year!"

- Kate, Port St. Lucie, Florida
