What an amazing trip this is going to be heading to Fitcation for the second time! I’m so excited. This year is going to be so different for me. Why so different? There are seven women returning this year. That takes the edge off because we have already met. I’m ready to say hello to my dear online fitness friends that I have met last year and am ready to meet some new friends. I’m a little nervous just because I have never been on a trip all by myself. How crazy is that? It’s true! Last year Fitcation was in Austin, Texas and all I had to do was a drive a few hours. This year I’m going to have to catch a plane and head to Los Angeles, California all by myself and pick up Krista and April (who I haven’t met yet) and drive us all too the Four Seasons West Lake hotel.
The agenda is set and jam packed with many things for us to do!

Fitcation was sponsored by Dole, Four Seasons Westlake Village, the California Health and Longevity Institute, Sip the Good Life, New Balance, Subway and Leading Lady Bras. These sponsors provided the attendees with lodging, meals, activities and product during the event. As an attendee, I was asked to give my honest opinion and all opinions are 100% my own and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of these organizations. To read about Day 1 at Fitcation click here.
