Fitness to do all that you wish, a tribe of Fit Gypsies, a packed Gear Closet – what do all of these things have in common?

Fitness to be prepared for the journey.

A supportive and tight community of like-minded women in The Fit Gypsies.

A clear vision of what your future holds as developed with the Book Club.

All of these combined support one exhilerating conclusion …   

The drive to strike outside of the familiar and explore the world at large.

This could be heading out on your first hike, running your first marathon, or setting out to backpack around Central America.  Here is where I’ll share my travels, lessons learned (there are TONS), how to connect with nature, and gear for the road.

I have accrued a lot of knowledge and it is my joy to pass it on to you.  The benefit of travel is you understand that love, sharing, and caring for each other is truly the only thing we own.  

Are you beginning to see a theme?  

I want to lead you into the vision you have for your own future or seeing a new perspective, get your body moving so that you are physically prepared for the journey, connect you with nature so that you can feel grounded and safe, and help you to see the world for yourself thru travel.
