Buff. Bronzed. Beautified. Breathtaking (literally).
These are just some words that my girls used to describe our Sweat Pretty retreat at Shaver Lake last weekend. We had SO MUCH fun, and can’t wait to have more in the future!
Want to learn more about what we do at Sweat Pretty retreats? Read below for a breakdown of our weekend and a sneak preview about our next retreat in September!
From spray tans, to Booty workshops, to assembling acai bowls, there isn’t much we didn’t do last weekend! Here is a recap of our favorite parts of the trip:
The Workshops: I led three workshops during the retreat: “If you Want a Booty,” “Intuitive Eating,” and “How to Bring Sweat Pretty Home.” I won’t give away too many of the surprises from these workshops here, but the testimonials from my girls say the most. Morgan said, “I’ve been using intuitive eating strategies non-stop since the retreat. We even used intuitive eating at the bar on Saturday night and were completely comfortable eating a few chips and stopping when our bodies were done. How freeing!”
The Workouts: Of course, we had to put the “sweat” in Sweat Pretty, so we worked out multiple times a day during the weekend! From deep stretching before the drive home on Sunday, to running around the beautiful tree-filled woods, to booty work on the front porch, we covered the entire body! The girls loved it - Dylan said, “This is probably the first weekend I burned more calories than I consumed, and I had such a fun time doing it!”
The Food: One of the best parts of the retreat was teaching my girls how to make tasty (and easy!) healthy food! We made burrito bowls, protein pancakes, kabobs, arugula salad, baked sweet potatoes, lakeside sandwiches, coconut water cocktails, and acai bowls. I sent a list of recipes home with the girls post retreat so they could make them on their own!
The Girl Time: Spray Tans and Dive Bars: What’s an all-girl’s retreat without girl talk? To reward ourselves from the tough workouts, we all grabbed a glass of vino and got beautiful spray tans from our very own Jenna from Sunrose Glow. Jenna also gave a short talk on dry skin brushing for healthy and tannable skin! We loved our tans this weekend - it totally made our hard-earned muscles POP! We also got to check out a local dive bar where we danced up a storm and met a few locals. Dancing burns calories, right? :)
The Lake: We spent half the day on Saturday soaking up the Vitamin D at Shaver Lake! We had TONS of fun floating in blow-up pineapples and flamingos, and we found an awesome lake bench. It was so relaxing to sit back and enjoy our coconut water cocktails and a beautiful view.
I hope this sounds as fun for you as it was for us! If you’re interested in coming to our next retreat, you’re in for a treat! See below for my sneak preview:
Join us this October 14th,15th,16th!
“Treat yourself like a Queen”
Yes, you read that right! This weekend will be full of pampering and learning how to take care of the queen: you! Sometimes we as women forget to take care of ourselves - we put all of our energy into others without taking any time out of the day to do things that we need to be happy. But the happier you are the happier your loved ones will be! Take a weekend to reconnect and treat yo self!

In every woman there is a a Queen! Can't wait to bring the Queen out of you!
