Health and Wellness Retreat
October 17 – 21, 2018
Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa • Galena, IL
Join us for five days of luxurious fitness and wellness.
Step out of your normal routine and set time aside just for you. Our annual Health Retreat is not a weight loss camp — it’s a wellness vacation designed to help you reconnect and reinvigorate.
Each day offers a carefully curated mix of adventure, exercise, healthy eating, and relaxation — while our small class sizes provide individualized attention and the opportunity to ask questions.
The retreat is designed to help you build a network of similar people that are trying to find their own balanced lifestyle. You will leave feeling healthier in your body, mind, and spirit.
The cost of the trip is all-inclusive, with the exception of your travel and any additional services (ie, massage, private sessions).
Early Bird Rate: $1471/person (Ends May 31,2018)
Regular Rate: $1700/person (June-September)
Payment plans available.
We are sensitive to the fact that sometimes, “life” gets in the way of your best laid out plans, whether it be financial, an unexpected illness or death in the family, or work. A Health Retreat is about putting yourself and your health first, and I would ask that you make every attempt to follow through on your commitment, not just to Hit the Floor, but to yourself as well. Canceling a trip because you didn’t make the time to train or prepare, is not a valid reason to cancel.
In the event that you need to cancel your reservation, please understand the following: Make your refund request via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the reason for your inability to attend the trip. Please do so as soon as possible. Hit the Floor will make every attempt to fill your spot. If you request a refund prior to 60 days, you will be issued a full refund, less a $500 processing fee. That fee may be applied to any future Hit the Floor Health Retreat.
If you request a refund within 60 days of your trip, Hit the Floor will make every attempt to fill your spot. In the event that Hit the Floor cannot fill your spot, you will forfeit the entire amount of the trip. If we are able to fill your spot, you will receive a refund for the entire amount paid, less a $500 processing fee.
All refunds are processed after the trip is completed unless a spot is filled immediately. Your assistance in filling your spot is gladly accepted. If you do cancel your reservation and forfeit any amounts paid, Hit the Floor would like to invite you to attend a trip in the future, if space is available, at no additional fee, or prorated fee (based on the price of the trip), except for your airfare to/from the destination. These are usually last minute (within 30 days) trips. If this is something you’re interested in, please contact email@example.com and place your request to be put on a “space available” list for a specific trip.

“I did not know what to expect when I came to your health retreat. What a pleasant experience. Your guiding and expert knowledge helped me to see what a healthy and satisfying lifestyle I can lead on my own.
The meals were outstanding and I was never hungry for any extra unhealthy snacks. I enjoyed all the ladies that were on the retreat and I hope to keep true to all that I have learned.”

“I went into the health retreat thinking I was going to spend some time with my friend and get my butt kicked in workouts. But the weekend turned out to be so much more. The workouts were a great introduction to many activities, some I was familiar with and some I have never tried (like aqua aerobics – I didn’t realize how hard it was to move in a pool!).
It was really great to get an opportunity to try so many different activities, in a relaxed atmosphere, that I normally wouldn’t have. The real “meat” of the weekend actually came in our discussion times. Great information was shared by the instructors, but we were able to make it hit home with personal discussions afterward. It was wonderful to be able to share with others and know that you are not alone in your struggles. We actually felt like a family for the weekend!
We had amazing food prepared for us and again I was able to try some new things. We were able to see how good eating healthy could be! I felt so pampered by the quality of the food – and no clean up! The chef even had demos to help us create some of his great recipes at home. To top things off, the place we stayed was amazing – being able to sit on that beautiful deck and watch the sunrise over the mountains each morning was breath taking. Thanks Emily for creating an amazing experience!”
