Join us this October 2017 for the fitness adventure of a lifetime in Rincon, Puerto Rico. Michelle Porter and Jay Wein will be teaming up to bring you
FITNESS - YOGA - TRAVEL - ADVENTURE - RETREATS
like they've never been done before.
WHEN: OCTOBER 22ND-28TH 2017
RINCON, PUERTO RICO
See for yourself why the main route through Rincon, Puerto Rico is known as "The Road To Happiness." This incredible surfer town located on the west coast of Puerto Rico is home to many of the most beautiful beaches Puerto Rico, the best sunset views, and surf waves sought by professional surfers from around the world yet is one of the best kept secrets in the Carribean.
Rincon is an incredible destination which requires locals and knowledge of the area to experience the magic.
Unlike many other retreat/vacation destination which you can travel to on your own, Rincon is a place where you need to have someone who knows the area well to experience all that this magical place has to offer.
Luckily for us, Michelle and Jay have the connections to hook you up with a badass adventure.
THE RESORT: VILLA COFRESI
We will be staying at The Villa Cofresi beachfront resort, known for it's beautiful beach and signature Piratas Rum Drinks ( hands down the best vacation cocktail you'll ever have...and it's served in a giant coconut...and it comes with a refill! ).
During our time at the Cofresi, we will have the best of both worlds. If you're craving private natural beaches where you can unplug and disconnect from the world you have miles and miles of coastline to explore. If you're down to party it up and make new friends, we have a pool/ocean bar with music and TVs on premises and outdoor activity area including pool tables and ping-pong table tennis.
We're also a short drive (or walk) from the downtown district!
TRAVELING TO RINCON, PUERTO RICO
To get to Rincon, Puerto Rico, please arrange all air travel to Aguadilla Airport/Rafael Hernandez Airport (BQN). If traveling from the NYC/NJ area, most flights are late night so plan to depart NYC/NJ the evening of Sunday, October 22nd and arrive at Aguadilla Airport around midnight. We have arranged taxi service to bring you to the hotel as you arrive (it's about a 35 minute drive).
There are only a limited amount of flights to Aguadilla from the NYC/NJ area so most likely many of your badass new friends will be arriving with you!

VISITING SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO

Our fitness programming is designed to give you plenty of the fitness you enjoy while also challenging you outside your comfort zone with movement that may be new to your body and current training methods.
During these sessions, Jay and Michelle will provide you with plenty of knowledge to optimize your fitness and lifestyle which you can take home to your everyday life.
All fitness sessions are optional.
Even though we'll be away from Hudson River Crossfit for the week, Coach Jay will still mentally and physically challenge us with his badass class programming including strength ( there will be barbells! ), bodyweight movements, gymnastic work, and killer WOD's. Coach Jay may not have his Assault Bikes in Puerto Rico to torture us with but if you know Coach Jay, you know he will find 1,000 other ways to make it burn!
For my yogis that are not sure about the whole Crossfit thing, Coach Jay will be offering plenty of modifications so all fitness levels can participate and have fun!
HIIT/ CIRCUIT TRAINING
Michelle will balance out the Crossfit programming with her HIIT/CIRCUIT workouts focusing on high-intensity bodyweight circuits, and core strength.
These sessions will include a team challenge for some friendly competition!
Get ready to flow hard and stretch it all out with Michelle's signature Athletic Power Flow class while overlooking one of the most beautiful coastlines in Puerto Rico.
We have secured a gorgeous rooftop balcony space at the Villa Cofresi overlooking the Carribean Ocean to flow, sweat, stretch, and get our zen on.
My yogis, we are super excited for you to experience Coach Jay's signature mobility sessions. While we are flexy and bendy from yoga, mobility is so much more than being flexible.
Flexibility refers to the ability of your soft tissue areas (muscles) to stretch....MOBILITY is the umbrella for many elements that contribute to movement with full range of motion, including restricted muscle tissue, joints, joint capsules, motor control, and soft tissue.
In other words, flexibility is one small element of mobility.
Coach Jay will take us to a new level teaching us new techniques to improve our mobility, movement, and joint health.
SO MUCH FITNESS!
So we have a pretty sweet set-up at the Villa Cofresi, however there is so much to see and do in Puerto Rico!
We have a full itinerary of events that will balance spending plenty of time at various different must see beaches around Rincon; spending some time enjoying the simple natural landscapes ( Besides the beaches, did you know that Puerto Rico has many mountains with incredible views and there's also a waterfall right outside Rincon? ); head to the downtown area for music and nightlife; have the option to try out some water activities like surfing, SUP paddleboard, and snorkeling; check out the local art district and indulge in delicious Puerto Rican cuisine and Artisan Food Trucks.
YES, FOOD TRUCKS!
TACOS. SMOOTHIES. PINCHOS (KEBABS), & FRESH COCONUT WATER STRAIGHT FROM THE COCONUT.
SO MUCH ADVENTURE!
IF YOU NEED ONE MORE REASON WHY YOU SHOULD COME...
WE WILL BE IN PUERTO RICO DURING
Puerto Rican avocados are nearly 3 times the size of the ones we see at the grocery store, taste so fresh, and are pretty much just falling off trees all over the place.
Because Puerto Rico is a commonwealth, you are free to bring back as many avocados, coconuts, papayas, and plantains as you can carry with you on your flight home!
Coming back with all of this "Avocado Gold" is worth the price of the plane ticket.
