We had a great time being an official partner of the Tone It Up Retreat Miami 2016. It was inspiring to see a group of such strong and dedicated women.
Welcome day came and went fast as we mingled with members during registration, browsed the TIU pop up shop, and explored the gorgeous Ritz Carlton property on Key Biscayne.
Our first night was the Welcome Soiree at the Dune Bar on the Ritz property. Situated right on the beach, we danced, laughed, and drank (maybe a little too much) rose as the sun went down.
Day 2 was off to an early start with the Rose 5k! It was a hot and humid morning, but that didn't stop all the determined TIU ladies from having a blast as they crossed the finish line and received medals from Karena and Katrina.
The 5k was follow up by a delicious brunch, complete with protein pancakes and rose (as promised).
The fitness fun continued through the day with breakout sessions of kickboxing, cardio salsa, tennis, stand up paddle boarding, and kayaking.
The majority of the day may have been focused on fitness, but there was no shortage of fun as the TIU girls partied it up at the pool with champagne showers (literally)!! We may have partied a little too hard, as the Ritz staff had to graciously ask us to leave the pool area.
Although the day was jam packed full of physical activity, nothing could dull the energy from the crowd as boarded the yacht for our second night in Miami! Cocktail hour on the roof of the yacht was the perfect way to kick off the night, followed by an amazing dining experience below deck in the lavish yacht dining room.
After dinner and dessert were finished, it was time to dance the night away under the stars and above the sea.
Day 3 was kicked off with an early Booty Call on the lawn at the Ritz with a beautiful set up by the Tone It Up team. After Booty Call, the day continued with break out sessions and chill time on the white sandy beach.
As the day came to a close and the night was about to begin, we all witnessed our first Miami thunderstorm in full effect. Intense rains and thunder gave us all a break from the sun as we prepared for our final night.
The Farewell Dinner was a sight to be seen. The sun came out again, just in time to give us a gorgeous sunset, and everyone was dressed in their best. Following the banquet was a surprise performance by Kelley James!
Overall, it was a great weekend in Miami and WannaGo is honored to have been a part of it. For all you Tone It Up girls, don’t forget to follow Karena and Katrina on WannaGo to see their favorite places to stay with up with their Tone It Up lifestyle.
