Next week (to the day) we're off to Club Med Sandpiper Bay in Florida, an all-inclusive active resort (there are a number of properties for you to select from Mexico, The Alps, Carribean, Mediterranean, Asia, Brazil and Africa - it's all about your preferred destination!). When it's time to get away from the hustle and bustle, it doesn't always mean that you have to lounge around all day under the sun - of course, you can do this here as well! In our next issue, we will share a number of things about this destination. Our primary purpose is to take in their Body and Mind Weeks which kicked off April 29th and continues through June 3rd. It's all about working out, perfecting your golf/tennis game and more! Until then, we have 5 things that we're excited about that can assist you when you begin thinking about booking your next vaca!
You can't beat the chance to just sit back and enjoy the rippling river as well as taking in copious palm trees! Pair that with warm weather and you can see why we've been mentally packing our bags to make our way here. This view can be enjoyed whether lounging, working out, waking up, etc. Just seeing it makes us think about recallibrating and being present.
This is the time of year (unless you're lucky ducks who have amazing weather year around) where you begin to think about your tennis golf and beach volleyball leagues. If you're just starting up for the first time, getting back into it or are simply looking to perfect certain things - Body and Mind Weeks allows you to work one on one with instructors that can work with you to improve your technique and to evaluate you! From watching professional demonstrations to being able to talk to those who can get you on your game - to being able to play with some of the latest and greatest so that you can decide what you'll be bringing into your personal collection when you're back home - this is so exciting and a major on our list! Definitely check out the website as there are a number of packages that you can select that include nutritionists, spa packages (more on that in a moment), fitness trainers and more.
You'll find us on the golf course, tennis court and in the studio for yoga obvi!
We've been a fan of L'Occitane for years and it is the epitome of luxurious relaxing products that literally take you away to another place! When we saw that they had a spa at this all-inclusive active resort, it was a no brainer that the fitness X relaxation integration that is offered here is definitely in keeping with athleisure culture!
First, we love a good Floridian sunset! It will be the first time that we will be on a river in Florida but the idea of finishing fun sessions and thinking about what we will have for dinner while catching the view - priceless! But when the sun goes down, it's time to check out the nightlife presented by the staff of Club Med (known as G.O.s) and of course to catch up some amazing beverages. We're always pumped to see what type of activities go on at all-inclusives and of course, we'll look you in as we'll be sharing across @AthleisureMag (Twitter and IG) social handles and via our Co-Founder/Style Director, Kimmie Smith (@ShesKimmie - Twitter and @Shes.Kimmie IG).
At the core of every vacation is the fundamental right to kick back and just take a moment! We are looking forward to nabbing a chair, enjoying beverages and taking in the environment. Club Med has all the bases covered from a variety of foods which are inclusive of dietary needs, a place for adults hang out, even the munchkins have a place to hang out as well as staying active!
Join us May 17th - 20th as we share our adventures and what you need to know about Club Med and then in the May issue (out later this month) we'll seriously give you the details on what you need to know in order to make your solo retreat, girlfriend's weekend, etc truly epic!
