Fifth retreat brings “Fierce Fall Fitness” to the great Canadian outdoors

BARRIE, ONTARIO, September 25, 2013Horseshoe, a Skyline Resort and FIT CHICKS are teaming up for the fifth instalment in their fitness series. “Fierce Fall Fitness” is a jam-packed weekend for chicks of all fitness levels, focusing on health, yoga, nutrition, wellness, adventure and fun in the great outdoors. 

The weekend retreat takes place November 8-10 and includes two nights’ accommodation and parking at the recently renovated Inn at Horseshoe, meals and a custom-designed FIT CHICK itinerary, to get you into a ‘fit’ frame of mind for the fall.

The all-inclusive schedule features a wealth of workshops and activities plus a healthy menu created by Horseshoe’s award-winning chef, Dylan Tulloch. Get moving with a Zumba fitness party, catch a Zen moment at “Ready to Rock” yoga, learn how to calm the storm inside your head with the “Feelin’ Chill” meditation workshop and mentally and physically push yourself with the FIT CHICKS challenge, a resort-wide team scavenger hunt with fitness obstacles and health trivia.
“The retreat is about more than your fitness, it’s about your frame of mind,” says Laura Jackson, co-founder and Head Chick. “We work to provide all participants with the skills they need to achieve their goals both physical and personal. With fall and winter weather on the way there’s no better time to kick your routine into high gear! Horseshoe Resort is the perfect place to combine the mental and physical aspects of a healthy active lifestyle and has plenty of activities available for every season.” 

Early bird rates are available from $369/person (based on double occupancy) on bookings before October 15.

Located an hour north of Toronto, on more than 680 acres of land, Horseshoe Resort is well equipped for fitness retreats and is ideal for those looking for an outdoor adventure. With a large roster of activities for every season, including mountain biking, horseback riding, rock climbing and more! Take a moment to relax and reflect at Shizen Spa, a relaxing respite for the tired chick.

Two more retreats are planned for the coming year at Horseshoe Resort, March 21-23 and November 14-16.
