Location, Location, Location

Located along the west coast of Mexico, this FUEL Weekend was all about taking advantage of the sun, surf, and sand. Whether it was swimming in the ocean or in on-property pools, getting toned with workouts on the sand or lush green grass, going on ATV adventures, or exploring the jungle oasis of the countryside, Punta de Mita had it all.

Detox. Retox. Repeat.

Having fun means doing it all, from detoxing with workouts and adventures, to retoxing with killer cocktails and amazing new friends, Quigley said it best:

Getting Out, Going Out

A truly amazing experience means taking some risks and seeing something new. No better way to experience Punta de Mita than by being able to explore the beautifully vibrant city by foot on one of the weekend’s excursions to Sayulita. Authentic food, local crafts, new experiences, and endless Insta opportunities.

Pushing the Limits

High-intensity trainers Ashley Guarrasi and Jason Wimberly taught us a thing or two about giving it your all. Whether it was learning how to box or dancing hard on the dance floor, the crew at the FUEL Weekend was always down to go hard, last longer, and stay later.

“Listen up kids,” Jason said after the trip, “this crew right here proves that if you have a dream, stay true to who you are, and work hard for what you want… nothing can stop you.”

And nothing did. Even if it meant Ashley vowing: “Here’s to never drinking tequila again.. or until the next trip ;)”

Fiesta, Fiesta

After a sweat, everyone deserves a little party, and Mexico knows how to turn it up. From a Bubbles & Beats pool party with champagne and sounds from Mexico City’s Alan Salomon, to a delicious Taco Fiesta on the shore with May Kwok’s unforgettable DJ set, to closing out the weekend with a house party of epic proportions featuring Vashtie spinning in the luxe E-WOW suite, every night was a celebration.

After workouts and sunset cocktails, the ultimate weekend away always includes time to rest, relax, and fuel your glow.

After the trip, wellness coach Bec Donlan felt rejuvenated and ready: “Coming back to NYC feeling refreshed, relaxed and still buzzing with good vibes after the most magical 4 days in Mexico 💃🏻✨”
