New Year, New Way to Kickstart Fitness!

New Year, New Way to Kickstart Fitness!

It is amazing what the body can endure, I thought this to myself, as I trudged up the lush, perfectly manicured path at Bacara Resort & Spa in Santa Barbara. It was 5 pm, but let me rewind: my day started at 6 am for a sunrise stretch – an hour of intense stretching. If you have ever taking a class dedicated to stretching you know there is such a thing, and if you haven’t, well you will just have to trust me on this one.

After the stretch class, we were guided up to the spa’s tranquil rooftop deck with a beautiful view, where we enjoyed vegan protein smoothies with fresh blueberries and half a banana.  Fueled up, we were ready for our hike to the top of Romero Canyon.  During the four mile trek, I was able to chat with some of the other participants in the Sky Ranch Fitness Retreat.

There was Elsa, a fearless yet elegant woman in her 70’s.  If she had told me she had been a beauty queen, I would have surely believed it.  Born in Egypt and raised in Paris, she and her husband and two young sons spent two years on a boat sailing and exploring the south Pacific.  She was a trooper.  When she was tired, she would rest, but she never quit.  In fact, she almost always had a smile on her face.  Throughout my visit, anytime I felt fatigued I would look at her for inspiration, thinking that if she could do it without complaining, than I certainly should suck it up!
