This trip was absolutely fantastic and truly a trip of a lifetime! Fitness and foolishness captures everything you could possibly dream of in a vacation and so much more. This was hands down one of the best retreats I've ever been on all thanks to Marisa and Nicole. Their execution was flawless and they thought through every last detail. I belly laughed at least 5 times every day and for that, I'm grateful.... Nicole and Marisa thought of every last detail ensuring that we had the most magical experience possible. From "glamping" in the desert, camel riding into the sunset, experiencing the local tagine cuisine and traditional Hammam spa treatments, exploring the souk, the thoughtful goodie bags upon arrival, the awards ceremony and trixy treat gifts at the end as a token of their appreciation - there was nothing that they did not think of. We kicked off each day with a workout on the roof under the sun and sky, then having the most decadent breakfast together as a group, site seeing and then ending the day with more exercise, cocktails as the sun sets and dinner and dance parties.... Who doesn't love dinner and dance parties??!?! If you're looking to revitalize your mind, body and soul, this is the trip for you. You wake up each morning feeling so zen and so at peace. It's truly a reprieve from the day to day grind. Breath in abundance, exhale negativity ... You are surrounded by other like minded individuals who just want to laugh, enjoy themselves and have fun. I couldn't have asked for a better group on my trip which made the experience even more special because we started as strangers and left as friends. Again, as I'm sure you can gather from the above, I would highly recommend this trip to anyone and honestly, I can't wait to book the next one... but actually...now i just wish i had a trust fund (and unlimited vacation days)!!! Thank you Fitness and Foolishness for giving me memories to last a life time. #gratitude

"I came for the Yoga + weather, I'm walking away feeling not only rejuvenated but also, inspired, motivated and loved. So excited about new friendships with these powerful amazing women and looking forward to more adventures together."

This was my second trip with Fitness + Foolishness and both times they absolutely killed it. The accommodations were incredible. We had the entire Riad, with two gorgeous pools and rooftop, to ourselves. I am still dreaming of the breakfasts we were served each morning - fruit and orange juice, yogurt with granola, bread, pastries, and eggs, all incredibly fresh. The hospitality we were given from the staff at the riad was unlike any service I have had before.
Luckily, I never felt guilty about eating all of the bread and tagine because we had fitness classes almost every morning and evening. If you have ever taken a pilates class with Nicole, you know she never fails to make your abs and booty burn. HIIT and yoga classes also added a nice variety for people who prefer more cardio or more stretching. All classes were totally optional and no one was every judged about missing a class (or every class if they wanted).
We had enough free time to explore the city on our own, but Nicole and Marisa planned some great outings. Most memorably, the glamping excursion. This was unreal. We got to ride camels during the sunset and hang out all night by the campfire in the most glamorous setting (seriously the definition of "glamping"). We also got hammams, which were included in the package and a final group dinner.
I am truly a F+F addict and would go on every trip if I had the vacation days and money. It is clear Nicole and Marisa put an immense amount of thought into each trip and truly care about making it a unique and enjoyable experience for everyone on the trip. - Elyssa S. NYC, Morocco 5.18

The Fitness + Foolishness adventure retreats are the best! Nicole and Marisa make an enormous effort to provide beautiful accommodations and unique excursions with a "side dish" of fun exercise classes. This is a touring company that will not only show you the "must-see" tourist attractions, but also enable you to experience some of the beautiful cultural traditions of the country. Perhaps most importantly is the open and welcoming attitude of everyone on the trip, which is a testament to Marisa and Nicole's infectious warmth and enthusiasm. I've been on two trips with them and I can't wait to join another one!
Nailah S. - Brooklyn, NY/Chicago, IL | St Maarten Oct 2016
"I decided to do this retreat at a time in my life where the way I had been operating in my life and career wasn't working. The was the perfect way to shake of that burnt out feeling, get centered in my mind, body, and should, and leave with a sense of possibility to create the life I want. Nicole + Marisa are so attentive and fun travel buddies. Celeste was such a great instructor incorporating the right balance of physical challenge and breathe. I'm forever grateful."
Gisela S - NY, NY | Morocco 2018 +Barbados 2016
Once again, Marisa and Nicole famously planned a magnificent memory that will last those of us fortunate enough to participate a lifetime. Energizing fitness classes, an exotic spa treatment, magical camel riding into the sunset, incredible bargain shopping in the colorful chaos of the labyrinth that is the souk, delightful dining with inspirational women...AND GOOD WINE! Excuse me?! A Fitness and Foolishness trip is not something to deliberate on for very long. You just book it and go and have the time of your life.

"Fitness and Foolishness, both Barbados and Cayman were amazing, fun-filled days. Nicole and Marisa truly take the time to expertly plan out such awesome excursions to ensure everyone has an experience to remember. The workouts are challenging, but yet the vibe of the group is always upbeat and makes the challenge well worth it. I have truly loved every experience with Nicole and Marisa and will continue to be one of their biggest groupies. Looking forward to Barbados 2016."

Empowered, Calm, Release
The St Maarten retreat was an intimate and unique fitness experience. Though short, it provided the perfect amount of beach time, caribbean culture, self-awareness and reflection, and relaxation in a comfortable environment. Celeste was the perfect addition to the Sweet + Thrasher duo. For my third retreat, I am still amazed and inspired at how Sweet + Thrasher are able to offer a unique twist to each retreat. Meet new people, refresh yourself and enjoy paradise. (SXM 16)
"It had been almost a year since my previous vacation and I was in desperate need of a relaxing vacation but didn't want to completely abandon my fitness regimen. Fitness + Foolishness was the perfect vacation for me. I was nervous about not knowing anyone but Sweet + Thrasher made me feel welcomed and at home among the group. There was no pressure to do anything out of your comfort zone but I ended up wanting to do everything because I was having so much fun. Gorgeous island, accommodating and fully serviced hotel and friendly 'Caymanians.' Highly recommend!!" (Cayman 15)
