CAN I CHOOSE NOT TO PARTICIPATE IN ALL ACTIVITIES?

The FIT RETREAT – Energize with Tara Stiles has been specially designed to provide participants with a balanced schedule combining the 4 main components of the program. We strongly advise taking part in all activities, not only to achieve your personal goals but also to take full advantage of the opportunities to explore the destination and create a sense of community with your fellow participants. If for personal reasons you decide not to take part in all activities, the total cost of the program will remain the same. Reimbursing a portion of the fee is not applicable regardless of the number of activities you take part in.
