Enjoy a chance to GIVE youR eating a 'ReBoot'

The Refresh team will help you jump start your nutrition by giving you the tools to make healthy choices not only during the trip but when you return home.  We'll show you how food can be good for you and taste good too.  We'll plan a grocery store 'field trip' to discuss the best ways to navigate the store.

Dinners are included and will be provided by a private chef who will prepare meals for refreshers with nutrition and health in mind. Fresh breakfast items will be available for you to self-serve each morning.  Lunch is yours to try out new recipes or explore the area!

There is power in a group and our goal is to learn from each other.  Recipes and tips from the Refresh Team, along with fellow Refreshers, will be shared to get your eating on the right track.

Coaches Kirk & Kameron Johnson will take you on a fitness ride that will have you burning maximum calories all day. Expect to work hard and reap the benefits of our specialized outside playground workouts, in gym circuit, strength and conditioning, boxing, yoga and more.  Enjoy stunning views from a variety of workout sites available in beautiful Palm Springs!  We truly believe that variety is the spice of a healthy, sustaining life.
