When not traveling the country this dynamic duo make their home in Vero Beach, where they are co-owners of Longevity Fitness Clubs.

“About Face Boot Camps" are planned for Sept. 11-13, Oct. 16-18 and Nov. 13-15, 2009, with prices starting at $499 per person, based on double occupancy. The three-day wellness weekends include:
  • Two-night’s accommodations in a Modern Studio
  • Low-calorie, gourmet breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus protein smoothies
  • Seminars on Exercise, Metabolism & Weight Loss and Diet & Weight Loss

Guests can also enjoy this invigorating retreat individually, with single occupancy rates from $599 for the entire weekend.

With society growing more and more health conscious, we wanted to offer our guests the chance to enjoy a luxury getaway while at the same time learning the skills necessary to alter their habits for the better,” said Awilda Rivera, the resort’s general manager. “Give us three days of your time, and the Pfiesters will change your life.”

Costa d’Este Beach Resort, which opened in June 2008, is a stylish, oceanfront oasis on Florida’s Treasure Coast, located just two hours north of Miami. Facilities include 94 luxurious guestrooms and suites, the gourmet Cuban-fusion Oriente restaurant and bar, European-style Spa at Costa d'Este, fitness center, infinity edge pool and hot tub, and Cabana Bar. On weekend nights, a disc jockey spins poolside, creating a hip vibe for drinks and dancing under the stars.
