One week in Costa Rica with the Sweat Reset team and I am feeling like a whole new person. Honestly, I don’t know if I even have the words to describe how truly incredible of an experience it was. I’ve gained so much self awareness and self confidence. I’ve learned that many of the habits I had were detrimental to my overall success in achieving my goals. This retreat was much more than a fitness and wellness retreat. It has honestly changed my life. This might sound so cheesy to you but I believe it to be true. I’ve set goals for myself with the mindset that I can and will achieve them rather than hoping to achieve them. I pushed myself further than I thought I could both physically and mentally. Being in a place like Costa Rica it’s hard not to have an amazing time, to wake up early, and seize the day. The real testament to this retreat will be six months down the road when I am still practicing and putting into motion all that I have taken away from the retreat.

During the colder months, it’s natural to feel worn out, unmotivated and easily overwhelmed by the ins and outs of your daily routine.

3. Taking Your Health and Fitness to the Next Level
Our end goal is to create lasting changes in your lifestyle. We have curated an entire experience that’s filled with individualization built toward your goals and greater education to help further you on your wellness journey.

4. Fun, Fun and More Fun
We offer a wide range of activities, excursions and relaxation options specific to our destination. It is our mission to immerse you in the culture and the beauty that is unique to every destination we visit. Enjoy an afternoon of snorkeling the reef on a private catamaran cruise or relax in the natural hot springs with a volcanic mud skin treatment. Sit back at the pool with a drink at the built-in swim-up bar or learn how to do stand-up paddleboarding with a certified SUP instructor. Be adventurous by taking a guided hike to take in the most amazing views, ride across a 10-station zip line or push yourself to new heights at the rock climbing course. But we don’t skimp on pampering for the sake of adventure-a complimentary 60-minute massage is included with your stay. You’ll have opportunities to explore the local town as well. Explore craft stores, boutiques and eateries. Round-trip transportation to all group activities and excursions is provided. And don’t worry, we already tipped your driver for you. Finish off your perfect day with a relaxing cocktail at sunset, followed by private chef-prepared meals. What more could you want in a wellness retreat?
5. Strengthening Your Mind
We believe mindfulness training is essential to resetting your mind, body and soul. This wellness retreat offers you private and group meditations, daily yoga classes and stretching workshops. We encourage you to soak yourself in silence each morning, sitting in beautiful gardens, private decks and patios, as to time to reflect, journal and contemplate. All mindfulness trainings will focus around being present, increasing gratitude and managing all of life’s challenges that clutter your mind with stress and anxiety. You will return home with greater control of your thoughts and a stronger, healthier mindset, both essential for creating lasting change in your life.
6. Building Lasting Friendships
Sweat Reset was designed with women in mind. Our ladies-only getaways are hosted in small, intimate group settings, allowing you to build relationships with other women who are on the same wellness journey as you. By surrounding yourself with like-minded individuals, you’ll receive the support, inspiration and empowerment you need to create lasting changes in your life. Through the deep and meaningful conversations you will share with these women throughout your stay, the friendships you develop at Sweat Reset will leave you linked for life.
7. Your Private Chef
Our all-inclusive package has all meals, snacks and drinks covered for you, no tip required, allowing you to simply relax and focus on the present. Indulge without guilt on this wellness retreat by digging into nutritious meals infused with the destination’s culture, prepared fresh daily and customized to your dietary preferences.
