When: Friday, February 9 – Sunday, February 11, 2018.

Fit Pro Bonus: There will be a TRX Suspension Training Course from 9 – 5 on Friday! Registration for that will be separate. Link coming soon.

Day 1: February 9 – Evening Workouts

TRX/Barre Fusion: 6:30 – 7:45pm

Love TRX? Love Barre? Sweet. Ami’s taken her years of classical ballet training and paired it with her favorite workout tool to create a class based on full-body balance and control. You’ll use the TRX as an unstable barre to challenge your core in ways you might not have before.

Beyoncé Dance Party: 8:00 – 9:15pm

Ready to dance? Us too. Come ready to sweat and smile while you learn some easy-to-follow moves for a fun twist on a cardio class.

Day 2: February 10 – Daytime Workshops & Lectures

TRX Suspension Training for the Outdoor Enthusiast: 9:00 – 10:15am

When you’re active in the outdoors you have two main goals: (1) get outside often and (2) don’t get hurt. In this session, you’ll go through a workout programmed to increase your performance, and learn how to keep yourself durable through the various seasons. Whether you’re hitting the road, the trails, or the slopes, you’ll take away some great new training tips.

Knowing When to Stop & Re-Group – Hitting the Reset Button on Life: 10:30 – 11:45am

We’ve all experienced burnout or dissatisfaction with our lives or careers at some point, but when do you know that it’s actually time to STOP what you’re doing? Taking a break can actually be the best thing for your productivity. I’ll tell you how quitting work helped me get further in my career. And how you can too…

Productivity Hacks for Life & Business: 12:00 – 1:15pm

“Not enough time” is the excuse we have for almost everything these days. From getting our workouts in to picking up that 2nd language to taking that trip we’ve always dreamed of, we’re putting far too many things on the back-burners in lieu of more and more things that keep us busy, but aren’t fulfilling. Learn some simple practices to put into play in your life today to make you more productive in the ways you want to be.

Day 3: Sunday, February 11 – Morning-ish Workouts

Flash Fit – TRX Metabolic Blast: 10:30 – 11:30am

Wanna burn some calories? Take part in this signature workout from Ami’s Flash Fit Clubs TRX program. A mixture of strength and cardio moves, this workout will get your blood pumping and leave you feeling sweaty and strong.

Sunday Stretch – Mobility & Flexibility: 11:45am – 12:45 pm

Better flexibility doesn’t produce a great 6 pack, but it’s still of utmost importance in your routine so you can move more freely and reduce your risk of injury in the future. In this class we’ll end the weekend with some chill mobility work and stretching so you can head home feeling refreshed.

FAQ’s:

  1. Why Santa Barbara? While I’d love to be floating on a raft in Fiji, Santa Barbara is only a couple time zones away from most people and way less expensive to travel to. There will still be sun, wine, and beaches, just with way less travel time and jet lag involved. Plus Southern California in the middle of winter is fantastic.
  2. Do I have to go to every workout/session? NOPE. You do as much as you want. If you want to come to one workout and then go to sleep for the rest of the day, that’s totally fine. Just let me know so I can open up one more spot in case somebody wants it.
  3. Will we be booked for every hour of the day? NOPE. The point of this weekend is to move but also to rest and recover from life. I’ve been to summit weekends that started at 6am and ended at 10pm and I was exhausted and cranky by the end of it. I felt like I needed a vacation to recover from the whole thing. You’ll notice on the schedule above that each day is only a few hours long and nothing begins before 9am. The group wine tasting, hiking, and paddle boarding activities afterward are completely optional.
  4. What if I can’t do all 3 days? There is single day pricing available! Email fitwithflash@gmail.com to inquire about signing up for one or two days only.
  5. Does the price include travel costs like flights and hotels? All of that for $249? I wish! The price covers admission to every session and cost of the host facility rental. Everybody will be coming from different parts of the country and will have different travel preferences. I’m letting you choose whether to fly or drive, and whether to camp, glamp, crash with friends, or stay in a hotel.
