About Weight Crafters
Weight Crafters is an all-inclusive fitness camp that takes place in a resort setting along Florida’s Gulf Coast. The program was created for individuals who are looking to trim their bodies and reach an optimal level of physical fitness. Weekly retreats focus on a conditioning process during which guests learn to eat healthy food only at proper times, work out every day on a strict schedule, and get the correct amount of rest. This systematic approach to fitness is meant to break bad habits and help participants lose weight.
Participants and their chosen guests or family members stay in 2-bedroom, private condominium accommodations at Skyline of Madeira Resort. All activities happen on property or locally. Everything, including meals, is included in the price of a weekly retreat. There are no added fees associated with the program.
Less than 40 minutes from Tampa, Florida, Weight Crafters retreats take place on the white sand beaches around St. Petersburg.
Weight Crafters offers independent-living, private condominium accommodations. These 2-bedroom, 2-bath apartments include:
- Furnished living and sleeping areas
- Laundry amenities with both washer and dryer
- Fully equipped kitchen
- Wireless internet and cable TV
- Workout facilities and pool
- Bay Location, ½ block from beach
Spouses, family members, and friends are invited to join guests in their private condominium accommodations for all or any part of their retreat at no additional cost. Participants who opt to share accommodations with other participants receive discounted pricing.
There is a very strong focus on fitness at Weight Crafters. Participants spend a minimum of 4 hours per day working out in some form. Group exercise sessions include:
- Cardio kickboxing
- Cardio tennis
- Kayaking/paddle boarding
- Massage therapy
- Resistance/strength training
- Water aerobics
- Beach boot camp
Retreats are limited to a maximum of 7 – 10 participants. As such, all activities take place in a group setting similar to a fitness boot camp. Due to the small size of these groups, guests can still expect individual attention.
Packages at Weight Crafters include three prepared meals for each participant, along with a protein shake, a healthy snack, and hydration each day. Meals are prepared with ingredients intended to accommodate fitness, wellness, and weight loss goals. Guests with special dietary needs will communicate those requests on a questionnaire ahead of their visit. This will ensure those dietary needs are met.
Instructors have the ability to modify all exercises to accommodate injuries, lost mobility, or emotional challenges.
Follow-up resources are constantly updated and can be found on the Weight Crafters website for previous guests.
Local participants can opt to join boot camps specifically intended for those who don’t require overnight accommodations. Programs can be customized for private groups, and can include special activities such as scuba diving. Likewise, Weight Crafters staff will come to a client’s location for corporate or non-profit bookings.
