Live in Fitness offers three distinct fitness programs tailored to fit individual visitors’ fitness goals. All of these programs include scientific health assessments, 5-7 hours of personal coaching and/or group fitness classes each day, daily customized meals, and health lectures and workshops.
The first level of training, their “Lose Big, Win Big” program, is designed for more extreme weight-loss and health improvement. This program is ideal for those who want to lose 40 pounds or more and need safe, effective coaching and nutrition guidance.
The second level, their “Shed and Shape” program, is designed for intermediate level sculpting and fitness training. This program is a good fit for those looking to lose less than 40 pounds and are looking to increase their tone and structure.
Finally, the third level, their “Ready to Rip” program, is designed for increasing the performance of elite level athletes. This program is geared toward athletes who have achieved their desired level of fitness but want to learn how to take their athletic performance to the next level.
As part of these programs, Live in Fitness offers over 40 different group classes including:
- Beach Biking

In addition to fitness training, Live in Fitness offers frequent lectures and workshops to educate their guests on healthy exercise habits and how to adopt healthy mindsets and behaviors.
All Live in Fitness packages include daily personalized meals, nutrition education, and culinary workshops. During their stay, guests work 1-on-1 with nutritionists and chefs to formulate a meal plan based on their nutritional needs and goals. The nutritional content of each meal, including the grams of protein, carbohydrates, and fats, are carefully weighed before each meal to ensure adherence to the meal plan.
The nutrition lectures and workshops are designed to help guests to learn about and understand the benefits of good nutrition to motivate future healthy eating practices. In these sessions, they learn about what types of food are healthy and why, appropriate portion sizing, balancing macronutrients, healthy cooking techniques, and health-conscious recipes.
Upon guests’ initiation of any Live in Fitness program of their choice, they undergo a comprehensive scientific body assessment including a hydrostatic body fat test, a resting metabolic rate test, a VO2-max test, and body age test to determine their level of health and fitness and tailor their program to maximize results. During their stay, guests are provided routine health assessments to ensure that the program is working as safely and effectively as planned.
Live in Fitness also offers an aftercare program, allowing visitors to use the resources at Live in Fitness after the end of their stay. This includes consultations with fitness experts, psychological and behavioral counseling, and other tools to help visitors stick with healthy lifestyle after their stay.

Live In Fitness Pros
- Competitively Priced – The base pricing option is lower than most FitStays.
- Flexible Training and Classes – Live in Fitness offers personal training in addition to a wide variety of classes to fit individual fitness tastes and abilities.
- Scientific Health Assessments – Guests are provided with health monitoring assessments at the beginning and throughout their stay to ensure they are on track to meeting their goals.
Live In Fitness Cons
- Focus on Fitness, not Amenities – Live in Fitness is first and foremost a fitness retreat and not a high-end Spa or resort, which may be unappealing to some.
- Lack of Accommodation Information – By not providing information on their retreat accommodations on their website, it makes it hard for visitors to compare Live in Fitness accommodations with those of other fitness retreats and resorts.
