In honor of leaving for my second FitPro trip this weekend I wanted to share a little flashback from my first trip this past summer. First I think it would be appropriate to share with you what a FitPro trip is. It's basically a teaching exchange vacation. I travel to a tropical destination and teach fitness classes in return for staying at the property, plus I get to bring a companion! Hello, hubby!!
Our first trip was to Couples Tower Isle in Jamaica this past August. I taught spin classes and yoga classes. It was so much fun to stretch beyond, no pun intended, just teaching barre. I became certified to teach spinning years ago and never found a fit as an instructor so it was wonderful to get back on the bike as an instructor. All those Peloton rides with Ally Love helped inspire me! Of course my heart is with barre but it was fun to branch out. I also was insanely proud of myself because I taught yoga for the very first time on that trip!

Hello, old friend!
One of my favorite things about this resort was that they had insanely good coconut macaroons. Something I'd never usually indulge in, but "when in Jamaica"?! What's a girl to do. I sought them out daily! I'm not sure what my indulgence will be next week, but teaching two cardio classes each morning will keep me from feeling any guilt about it, that's for sure! I can't wait to share more about my upcoming trip. Be sure to follow along on Barreista Be Well Instagram and Barreista Be Well Facebook!
