Spring 2020 Retreat TBD

Escape. Reset. Thrive. Everything you want for your life, every dream you have for yourself, starts with having a foundation in fitness. When you're properly fueling your body, moving every day, developing a healthy mindset and connecting with community…

Foundations: Conquering Self-Sabotage & Releasing Shame
Believe it or not, every action, even perceived to be negative, serves a positive function. This work shop will help you explore the root cause of self-sabotage and help you release the shame and guilt of old behaviors.
Foundations: Developing a Powerful Sense of Self-Worth

    Christa King is the CEO & Founder of Fitlandia. She's also a recovered dieter. After reaching her highest weight of 192, she hit a wall and was determined to crack her own code for a making a healthier lifestyle change. After a life-changing retreat in 2012, Christa left a successful, 23-yr career in hospitality behind and became a Certified Hypnotherapist, Nutritional Therapist, and Lifestyle Strategist. By putting these pieces together, she saw what was truly missing in the diet and fitness industry: a holistic approach that starts with strengthening the mind. Her signature Mind ZoningĀ® process helps people create new neural pathways in the brain to enable them to make a permanent, lifestyle change so they never diet again. Her street creds: Certified Hypnotherapist, Nutritional Therapist, twice-certified Life Coach, EFT Practitioner and Mindfulness Coach. Christa prides herself on being your biggest cheerleader.
  • Tracy




    Tracy's Life Mantra: Whatever comes, let it come. Whatever stays, let it stay. Whatever goes, let it go.
    Tracy has been a certified Personal Trainer and Kettlebell Coach since 2014 and a Level 1 MoveNat Instructor and Schwinn Cycling Instructor since 2017. She was a collegiate athlete and has always loved sports and fitness. Diagnosed with Spondylolisthesis 10 years ago, Tracy struggled to find a way to workout pain-free. That led Tracy to discover Kettlebells in 2010 and through that experience, she found her passion to help others achieve success and pain-free movement through exercise. She chose to leave her corporate job and pursue a career in the health and fitness industry. She loves working with people at all levels and helping them to find their true potential through exercise. Tracy's clients vary from people who have injuries and physical limitations to athletes and people that are just starting their fitness journey. Tracy is eager to share her knowledge and enthusiasm for fitness with all of her clients so they too can thrive.
