There are people and experiences you have in life that change your perspective, lift your spirit and leave a mark on your heart, mind and soul. The Bali Women's retreat with WanderFit Ventures was one of those. I was super busy with work and friends didn't have the funds or desire to travel... I wanted to go to Bali and found WanderFit Ventures, which I am so glad I did! Initially I was nervous about a women's only retreat, I had flash backs of 'Mean Girls' which was completely misplaced! As women we thrive in a community of likeminded women and finding good humans to spend time with can be hard in today's busy world, when we are all running to keep up. The itinerary, the accommodation, the attention to every little detail, the welcome, the warmth of Carrie (and Rachel), the other women, the shared experiences, the belly laughs, the tears, the hugs, the massages, the food... oh the food and every little and big thing in between was next level amazing. My cup was overflowing when I left. If you're looking to travel and want a fun holiday with some adventure and fitness thrown in for good measure whilst being taken to the best spots... THIS is the retreat for you. I made life long friends in that week and have since caught up with the girls in different countries to continue the fun. The next retreat is booked and I couldn't be more excited! Thanks WanderFit Ventures!!
I’ve done quite a bit of traveling both on my own and with a travel buddy but decided to change things up a bit and see what it’s like to have somebody else lead the way and show me a new piece of the world. It was 100% worth putting my trust in Carrie and Will, I couldn’t have conceptualized a better trip for myself if I tried. One of the best parts about the trip is not having to worry about a single thing. No planning, stress about scheduling or transportation. They thought of everything we’d possibly need throughout the whole trip and went above and beyond to provide luxuries we didn’t even need as well. Even during our free time we weren’t just left to fend for ourselves while Carrie and Will took a break. They were non stop in their quality of service recommending places to go and even showing us the way and joining us more than half the time. It felt like you were visiting old friends that really really cared about you as a person. My biggest concern going into it was, “am I going to feel like I’ve spent this money to be stuck somewhere I don’t want to be once I’m there and there’s nothing I can do about it”. I’m so grateful they proved my worries to be nothing more than just that. I couldn’t be happier with all that I got out of the experience. All in all, I expected the trip to be great because Bali is somewhere I’ve always wanted to go but it was so much more than I had hoped for and would recommend it to anybody who wants to do some traveling. There’s nothing else out there like WanderFit and I can’t wait until new locations are added so I can see more of the world with them.
I was a little nervous booking my WanderFit trip. Firstly, I was going alone, not knowing anyone and second it was a fitness retreat . Turned out it be the best trip I’ve ever been on, so sad there hasn’t been any this year. The whole week was organised so well with the perfect blend of fitness and cultural activities. All activities can be adapted to suit your ability level. Will and Carrie are the loviest people and really look after your needs and a you can expect a few extra surprises throughout the week. The friendships you make throughout the week will stay with you for life. Highlight for me was managing to stand up on a surf board. Don’t hesitate book now you won’t regret it.
Recently I was a part of a gym retreat with WanderFit and boy did they deliver! The week was filled with fun activities, sweaty workouts, treats, games and all of the laughter. Will and Carrie are a team to be reckoned with and gave us everything we could’ve asked for and more! They are beautiful people and by the end of your trip you’ll be sad to be leaving them as well as the beautiful country you’re in! Would recommend 100%, you won’t regret it!
I've been on 2 retreats so far with the WanderFit team and loved them so much I'm already planning my next! Carrie, Will, and their team Rachel and Dean are amazing, fun human beings who showed us all that Bali and Portugal had to offer. Highlights were the holy water temple, the famous Ubud swing and snorkeling with manta rays in Bali. For Portugal it was paragliding, mountain biking and the sunset cruise. There is always workouts and yoga which is multi level and challenging yet fun for all. What was even more amazing is that I made friends for life not just with this bunch, but all the people I met on all the retreats. We came as strangers and left as friends, and during the retreat we felt like one big family. Can’t wait to see what the Costa Rica and Mexico retreats have in store!
It is with great pleasure to be able to share a little bit about my journey with the WanderFit Team and their Retreats. I first heard about Wanderfit's Bali Retreat through a close friend that worked with Carrie in the past. After researching the website and the planned activities, I was sold! It combined everything I love; travel, fitness and unforgettable experiences. I thought to myself "Wow, this looks like a lot of FUN!". I consider myself to be active and adventurous but with my busy work schedule I would have never considered a vacation like this or...going to Bali nonetheless! Well, it was absolutely the best decision I made. The professional correspondence began immediately, even prior to paying the initial deposit. The staff made me feel safe and confident by answering all of my questions especially with traveling to a distant, foreign country. Once my mind was at ease, I was ready to embark on a trip of a LIFETIME! From the moment I arrived in Bali until the moment I left, the WanderFit Team had the entire trip organized and under control. It is evident that this incredible crew puts in a tremendous amount of work to create a memorable and positive experience. I had such an awesome time that it didn't take me long to register for the WanderFit Portugal Retreat, and bring my younger sister along for the ride! She doesn't spend much time in the gym, but I ensured her not to worry. The team quickly assesses your athletic level and establishes a custom workout program catered to each individual. One of the best parts of the Retreats is that the workouts are fun, motivating, and strategically incorporated into daily excursions. Just a few of my personal favorites were hiking, surfing, rock climbing, mountain biking, and yoga. Let me not forget to mention the FOOD! As somewhat of a foodie myself I was highly impressed with the team's choices for the most incredible restaurants that offer fresh local ingredients. Having the opportunity to spend time in these beautiful countries with breathtaking views, delectable food, fun activities, has exceeded all of my expectations. I encourage anyone reading this to not be overwhelmed and just GO FOR IT! Will, Carrie, and the entire WanderFit Team help create memories and friendships that last forever. I can't wait to sign up for another retreat with them and bring my future wife along this time! They have truly inspired me to cease new opportunities, and simply...live better!
I booked this trip from Instagram ads. I was traveling for the first time solo and really had no clue how it was going to turn out! I can say now that it is the best thing I have ever done for myself. Everything exceeded my expectations from start to finish. The gym sessions are designed for everyone! And there is a great balance between training, rest & adventures. It’s a chilled out vibe, I loved each and every day. Will & Carrie are the best! And Dean thank you for keeping us laughing throughout the week! I would love for more people to have the same experience! And highly recommend WanderFit for anyone who wants to experience a new place/culture and include Fitness throughout their trip. The best part: I’m coming home with a whole new group of friends!! Ps. If you are thinking about traveling solo and maybe your a little scared! Or maybe your a little on the quiet side. If I can, you can!! Just do it! I promise you won’t regret it!!
When my girlfriend and I booked our first trip with WanderFit, we were wondering if we were going to get our moneys worth. After just the first day we quickly realized we were getting more than we ever expected! The service started even weeks before the trip started. The staff did a great job in reaching out to all of us, introducing themselves, and making sure we knew what to expect and prepare for everything we needed. From the moment we walked into our villas, we were greeted with floral decorations, a swag bag, and welcome gifts! The best part of everything was that we didn’t have to think about anything to do. Everything was planned out perfect. All the activities they planned were exactly what we would’ve wanted to do anyways, and they even gave us time for ourselves. We never felt like we were on a schedule either, if we were having a good time somewhere we hung out there until we wanted, and if we wanted to deviate and check something else out, we did that as well. This was also a very special trip for Cristie and I because I asked her to marry me! (She said yes !) Will, Carrie, Max, and Frank went above and beyond to make that experience for me unforgettable. They also made sure that everyone was accommodated by knowing everyone’s diet restrictions, food allergies, and physical capabilities. If someone for whatever reason felt as if they couldn’t do one of the activities, they made sure to accommodate them in other ways with out feeling left out of the group. Will was also a great coach, and has a lot of knowledge on how to move properly and how to make sure everyone was safe and had a good workout while having fun. Honestly I cannot wait for the next destination with WanderFit!
I was so nervous to take my first solo trip and to some place so far away. But I am so incredibly glad I did it. By far the best trip of my life. Carrie, Rachel, and Will are amazing humans and without them this wouldn’t be possible. They plan every little aspect of the trip and it’s all about the details. It is such a good balance of adventure, culture and fitness. I had a smile on my face every single day. I didn’t want to leave and extended my trip a few extra days. From surfing, to visiting a temple, snorkeling with manta rays, to yoga and meditation- i looked forward to each day. I love the ladies on this trip as well. We arrived as strangers but absolutely left as friends. I am so excited I have decided to book another retreat with them next year to Costa Rica. I would recommend WanderFit to anyone looking to travel and explore Bali - these guys will not let you down!!!!!
After a last minute decision to escape a long cold winter I stumbled across Wanderfit retreats and I simply could not have asked for a better escape. Everything is organized so seamlessly and Will, Carrie and Rachel are such incredible host’s it actually feels like you’re traveling with friends from day 1. Wanderfit retreats offers the perfect balance of relaxation, adventure and fitness and I cannot wait to join the team again in another one of there incredible locations
I took my first ever international vacation with WanderFit and it was the best decision I have ever made! The entire crew was very attentive, caring, and aware of every person on the trip. They packed an entire week full of activities and adventures and made sure we saw the best that Bali had to offer! Will is an amazing and highly educated coach, his fitness classes were fun, easy to follow, but challenging at the same time. For me, the best thing about this crew was their attention to detail. From knowing everyone’s name, food allergies, fitness level, etc., to providing us with everything we could possibly need to have a good time. Their daily gifts left on the bed each night helped us reflect on the days activities and gave us a small momento to help us remember the adventure. Even on the days where we had free time to roam around and experience Bali in our own time, they made sure we had options of things we wanted to see and do. Not one time throughout this entire trip did we have to figure something out or think about what to do. I can honestly say we saw and experienced all of Bali. It was a great mix of fitness, relaxation, and fun! I am DEFINITELY doing another WanderFit venture and I can’t wait! Thank you Carrie, Will, Max and Frank for the best vacation ever!! Vanessa
This was such an amazing experience that left me with life long friends. As someone who does not have many people to travel with, WanderFit provided an amazing alternative to traveling solo. I was able to see and experience the amazing place that is Bali, meet and create bonds with wonderful people, all while maintaining my active lifestyle. Will and Carrie are beyond the best hosts anyone can ask for and I look forward to seeing them again very soon...since I have already booked another retreat with WanderFit!! Yes it's that good!! Thank you both for making this an unforgettable experience.
I love to travel and working out on vacation is not optional in my book! I love trying out new gyms and meeting like minded people. So WanderFit was perfect. I didn’t have to research gyms and the must sees when we were visiting Bali, because they did it all for us! It was the trip of a lifetime. My Fiancé and I hit it off great with Carrie and Will and can’t wait for our paths to cross again! ✌🏼
What an epic adventure! Where do I begin .... I had just been presented with my greatest fear, losing my father and was shattered. I was in search of a travel retreat - somewhere far away where I could clear my mind, meet new people and focus on getting stronger physically and emotionally. I came across WanderFit on instagram whilst searching for retreat programs and sent a DM. I received the most beautiful message from Carrie, the founder, who welcomed me over with open arms and love. Though we had never met, I felt like she was already family. A few weeks later, I showed up to a villa in Bali with people who initially were strangers and left with a tons of awesome memories, a tribe whom I loved dearly, I was stronger and ready to take on the world. Thank you WanderFit for being a beacon of hope, a ray of sunshine and for making me feel that there is so much to look forward to in life, to never stop wandering and for always having a place with you all. I’ve signed up for my next retreat to Costa Rica and I can’t wait to be reunited again with my tribe.
Amazing experience! One of the best trips I’ve ever been on! Well thought out workouts and amazing fitness activities. Will and Carrie (and Dean) have an amazing gift of adjusting when activities can’t happen for whatever reason and making you feel welcome and absolutely taken care of. The cultural experiences, the food, the camaraderie, all top notch. I consider myself a functional introvert (yes that’s a thing lol) and it often takes a certain type of vibe to get me out of my shell. Wanderfit absolutely facilitated that vibe. I never felt forced to participate in anything but felt so comfortable with the group that went out of my comfort zone and allowed myself to fully enjoy this experience. I recommend this to anyone that enjoys vacationing with a side of fitness and adventure.
