Health and fitness are your birthrights. Both are free to possess; you just have to earn them. Achieving either is almost impossible with all the misinformation and expensive gimmicks in the field. Our premier retreat, Health & Fitness Week, is designed to liberate you from costly supplements, superfoods, and gym memberships, as well as bulky equipment and boring routines.
Armed with a performance-tested, personalized fitness evaluation that you co-created with Dr. Graham and his top 80/10/10 fitness instructors, you’ll smile every time you see yourself in the mirror – knowing you’re on track to take your health and fitness to an entirely new level!
You’ll smile every time you’ve been “playing” at one of your new “fun exercises” for an hour and you aren’t out of breath and you still have a ton of energy left in the tank.
You’ll smile when you can take on whatever life throws at you, knowing you have the health and vitality you need to take it on with plenty of get-up-and-go!
People have loved Health & Fitness Week since it began in 1996, and every year we deliver on our promise to make it better than the year before.
Health & Fitness Week is NOT just for athletic superstars.
People at every fitness level, from beginners to athletes, will thrive at Health & Fitness Week, because we limit our retreat size to less than 30, allowing us to focus on your personal needs. An amazingly supportive and nonjudgmental environment grows out of a common desire to be the best we can be, given the physical and emotional challenges each of us faces.
If you’re a beginner and don’t know where to start, this caring, supportive and safe environment is definitely the place to do it!
If you’re simply looking to increase your enjoyment (and results) in your health and fitness endeavors – you couldn’t find a better place to make that happen.
And if you’re already very “fit” and want to take your performance to the next level, you can be sure we have the staff, programs, and experience to make Health & Fitness Week a turning point in your athletic journey.
This year’s theme is the 4 S's Safe, Strong, Simple, & Satisfying!
When writing Prevention and Care of Athletic Injuries, I repeatedly stressed the fact that injuries are the worst of all possible setbacks.
We teach proper technique and stress the use of good mechanics at all of our events, specifically so that you can garner the most benefit, and be worry free when performing any activity. Regarding strength, be guided by the words of Dr. Leonid Matveyev, father of the periodization concept as used in modern fitness training: "Strength is the physical foundation for the development of the rest of the physical qualities.” Serving Simply Delicious® raw organic food is our rule at all FnS retreats, and at Fit X we “keep it simple” by teaching you how to build your fitness without resorting to gimmicks, gadgets, or fancy machinery.
We teach you how to get better performance and more enjoyment out of your chosen physical activities, thus making fitness activities much more satisfying.and meaningful.

If, for only a moment, you could feel what you will feel at the end of your Health & Fitness Week experience, this question would already be answered. But since you have to attend to really feel it, we’ll answer it simply by saying:
You will spend a week with like-minded people from all walks of life, eating the most mouth-watering and beautiful 80/10/10 meals you could imagine.

Lisa has been honored with the NESTA Certified Personal Trainer and BodySport Contest Prep Coach professional designations and is active in fitness competitions.
“Realizing my passion for physical fitness at a young age, I spent my childhood years playing on the monkey bars and climbing ropes during recess. I now love to engage in strength training, figure & performance competition, and the martial arts of kickboxing and Brazilian jiu jitsu.
"My utmost desire is to encourage and motivate others as they reach for their fitness goals. The road to the body you desire requires consistency and hard work, but the formula is simple. My experience, as both a competitive strength athlete and a longtime hair therapist, has given me the tools to connect, empathize, and nurture the drive in people.”
Coach Selby, Owner of StretchExpert, and Inspiration Coaching, will part of our team this year. He has been a dedicated athlete since 1968 and a health and fitness coach for over 20 years. He is a true standout in his field, demonstrating a great understanding of the dynamics of sports stretching and how it relates to maximizing performance. His total body stretching routine, based on the Active Isolated Stretching method, is leading-edge technology for the serious athlete.
Coach Selby is a fascinating person and a delight to work with. He graduated from the University of Miami and has a master's degree in spiritual psychology from the University of Santa Monica. Natural Hygiene came into his life at the very young age of 12, back in 1974.
“Sports stretching is my main focus. I got involved with it while I was attending University of Miami, where I played Division I basketball. I have explored yoga, pilates, the Alexander Technique, Rolfing, tai chi, sports massage, Hanna Somatics, and ultimately Active Isolated Stretching (AIS), in my search for ways to maintain and support the body for supreme athletic performance.
The skills I developed inside the clinical world of AIS have become central to how I take care of my body instrument. Doing the daily full body routine I created, in combination with an alkaline lifestyle, is a powerful recipe for any athlete who wants to perform well, recover fast, and feel amazing.
I am excited to again be part of Health & Fitness Week this year. It is always awesome to be with other people committed to a high level of health and fitness.”
We are pleased to welcome Erin’s more than capable hands, creativity, and mind to the kitchen this year as head chef! Erin started her journey towards a raw vegan diet over 12 years ago and says, “This change in diet/lifestyle has completely changed every aspect of my life for the better! I have lost weight, cleared up my chronic cystic acne, improved my athletic ability and digestion, gained greater mental clarity and a deeper connection to the world around me - just to name a few things! Because I have seen such a change in my life, I am extremely passionate about helping others do the same - one small change at a time!”
As one of our 80/10/10 Certified Life Coaching students, Erin has combined that training along with her training in yoga and hosts retreats of her own, does raw food catering, coaching and more. She says she loves yoga almost as much as she loves good food. Come join us and enjoy Erin’s good food with all of us.
