Fit & Fly Girl was formed out of a desire to bring women together, combining travel with the pursuit of a balanced and healthy lifestyle.

Fit & Fly Girl retreats introduce women to new locations that they might not otherwise visit on their own.  Fit & Fly Girl believes in providing a well-rounded approach to retreats, blending together fitness, wellness, culture, adventure, nutrition, and pampering.

Overall, the purpose of Fit & Fly Girl is to empower women to travel, to pursue adventure, to create meaningful and lasting friendships, and above all, to take care of themselves mind, body, and spirit.  

So step out of your comfort zone and get ready.  It's time to fly.

Rebecca is the Co-Founder and a Retreat Host for Fit & Fly Girl.  An attorney in Seattle, Rebecca balances her law practice while pursuing her passion for travel.  She has traveled to over 35 countries on five continents, spending a considerable amount of that time traveling solo or attending women's fitness retreats.

Rebecca is also a freelance travel writer and blogger.

Several years ago, Rebecca attended her first women's retreat in Bali.  In addition to immersing herself in surfing and yoga, she loved the strong bonds formed with like-minded women who shared her passion for travel and wellness.  It's that same bond that Rebecca intends to foster and share with other women through Fit & Fly Girl retreats.

"What drew me to fitness retreats for women, specifically Fit & Fly Girl, is the camaraderie and energy that women get from one another. It is an amazing experience to see the strength, courage and wisdom of the women that attend. Being a part of that is such a gift and what I am all about at the core."
