Kudos to Clem and the gang


I wasn’t quite sure what to expect being Clem’s first fitness retreat but I was very pleasantly surprised. He wasn’t kidding when he said the venue and location was amazing. Not having been to Costa Rica before, I was a little unsure of the accommodation and the location. I was not disappointed. The lodging was ideally located 200 m from the beach which was perfect for early morning meditation, beach workouts, surf lessons and sunset yoga. The resort was equipped with a pool if the ocean isn’t your thing. My room was lovely. The blonde wood brightened up the whole room and was very clean and well maintained. 

All that aside, the camp was exactly as advertised. Super tough military style workouts and  super clean and awesome food. There was not a deep fried food to be found anywhere in the kitchen. (I love deep fried food) The freshest of fruits, seafood and vegetables were made available to us. Clem’s team was outstanding. Mark Atherton provided the meditation and yoga sessions and was so inspiring that he made me want to start going to yoga sessions. Tom Duranseaud, the surf instructor was also amazing. He almost made me like surfing. Mark Delaney, the Chef from Turf is truly the unsung hero. He slaved all day and night in the kitchen and it totally showed in his beautiful cuisine and presentation. And then we have Clem. The man behind the machine. The workouts were ‘Clem hard’ combined with his infamous encouraging supportive words...” Faster!!” “10 more reps if any of you cheat” and “I am so excited about our workout today..: 10 minute plank.”. 

Clem and his team ensured that all of us were well taken care of and had everything that we needed. 

I am confident that next year’s retreat will be even better and look forward to experiencing this with my husband!
