Women's Fitness Retreat: Superwomen Summer Camp in Redondo Beach, California

Do you have a never ending list of business to dos that you want to work on, but never seem to get to because you're too busy serving the clients you have and hustling to get new ones so you can pay your bills?

Do you find yourself working on your vacations even if you don't want to, because you're able to think more clearly when you're away from your desk?

Are you dreading the summer slump - that time when clients and customers go out of town on vacation, often last minute and cancel their sessions with you (if you're a service-based business) or forget to buy products from you before their trip?

I get it!

I've been there. In fact, I guarantee I've said "yes" to at least one of these questions this past week and definitely to all three in previous summers. 

But not this summer!

Instead of feeling overwhelmed with to dos, working on the vacation I worked hard for, and cursing the clients I really love, I'm going to take time to work on my business strategy when my clients are most likely to be away

And if you'd love the same, I'd love to have you spend some time with me in California this August!

I'm hosting a Women's Fitness and Business Retreat for four nights in Redondo Beach, California that I've designed around what I could have used in my business in the first few years and still crave today, five years of business, a book, and a podcast later.

Would you also love:

  • Time away from your desk that's NOT just a few hours at a coffee shop in between appointments or during a family vacation to get nagging business to dos done

  • Time to reflect on what worked and what didn't work in your business the last month, quarter and year so that you can be more strategic and effective in the next month, quarter, and year

  • The ability to work alongside other female entrepreneurs who "get it," can offer their own insights and feedback and be a support system and sounding board for your latest  crazy, but awesome idea

  • Help learning how to balance your business and health and finding the motivation to work on both

  • The opportunity to bring your business to a new market (location, new circle of influencers)

  • To pick the brain of someone who's published a book or started a podcast so you feel empowered to create your own (hint: your hostess has done both and highly recommends doing both and would love to help you in person!)

  • Have some down time to relax and soak in a beautiful jacuzzi tub without having your mini me knocking on the door OR stroll along the beach without a care in the world?

If you said, "yes" out loud or to yourself, you'll also LOVE saying "yes" to being one of the six amazing female entrepreneurs who get to be a part of my fitness retreat this summer!

The basics and WHERE and WHO this idea came from

Prepare your body and business for a productive fall by spending four nights in sunny Redondo Beach, California at the Fit Armadillo Superwomen Summer Camp this August 2018!

The Superwomen Summer Camp fitness retreat will be hosted by Fit Armadillo founder and ACE-Certified Fitness Professional, Catherine Basu, who created it to help you put the tips from her book, Superwomen Secrets Revealed into action. 


You'll spend your four nights of the wellness retreat in California working on your fitness and business goals while meeting and getting inspired by your fellow summer campers, other female entrepreneurs. If you haven't experienced the power of adding movement to your busy day as a business woman or the power that comes from women empowering women, you do not want to miss this event!

You'll return home from your four days feeling more energized, focused, creative and inspired.  

Why Join Us?

While being a solopreneur has its perks, it can be lonely and easy to get in a rut while you're on your own.  Taking time away from your regular routine to learn tips and tricks to revitalize it and your business can make a world of difference. Enjoying time with other women in business will leave you more inspired and give you greater perspective than you can get on your own.

Join us to jumpstart your fitness routine and business while soaking up all Southern California has to offer.

The Location

The retreat will be hosted in a beautiful home in Redondo Beach, California that's half a mile from the beach and a 30 minute ride from Los Angeles international airport.

Home sweet home and home office away from home!

Enjoy walks along the Redondo Beach esplanade in the morning or on your own time, biking to the Hermosa Beach's farmer's market if fresh fruits and veggies make your heart sing (less than 3 miles away), and walking to the Redondo Beach farmer's market before you head home on Thursday (open from 8 AM -1 PM and just half a mile away). 

Your retreat leader will lead you through fitness sessions at the home at least once a day either in the beautiful, big living room (with ocean views) or in the backyard, weather permitting (not to jinx it, but SoCal weather is pretty much ALWAYS amazing ;) ).

The retreat will be hosted just a 30 minute drive south of LAX Airport.

Retreat Schedule and Activities

Thanks to the small size (just SIX overnight participants), the retreat workshops and fitness sessions will be customized based on the needs of the group (so be sure to take that part of the application seriously!). However, you can expect to start the day with movement followed by a small group session to help you focus your personal work time.  Throughout the day, additional small group and personal time will be included. This retreat is designed to help you get serious about your business before you head into fall by adding more strategy and focus, but it's not designed to burn you out. You should expect to leave feeling inspired and rejuvenated thanks to a healthy balance of work, workouts, and play.
