This Podcast is was last published on June 7, 2017, I have updated it with our new Podcast host information and I am representing it now. I hope you enjoy it, Joey
This year is going to be different!
You see for years Amy and I have traveled with FitBodies Inc. to teach fitness at beautiful resorts in the Caribbean.
We could only because Amy is an ACE Certified Group Fitness Instructor, which is the primary requirement to participating in this fabulous program: teach a few Group Fitness classes each day in exchange for a free stay at an All Inclusive resort in the Caribbean.
Everything changed when Suzelle Snowden, the owner of FitBodies, Inc send me an email that said they now have openings for Indoor Cycling Instructors!
Suzelle's email happened to come on September 23rd, which was our 21st anniversary, and I wasted no time booking a trip to Couples Tower Isle for the first week in November. I will be the Instructor that week and for the first time, Amy will get to choose when and where she works out 😉
There are many weeks available. Listen to the Podcast for more details and then visit http://www.fitnessprotravel.com to register - It's free. You only pay a booking fee once you decide what week you will be taking your working vacation.
Here is a link to the resort where Amy and I are going. We were there a few years ago and we are excited to see what a $33 million renovation looks like.
UPDATE: 7/4/2013 - hundreds of Instructors have acted on our recommendation and enjoyed a low cost, romantic Caribbean vacation. Is it your turn to teach on a beach in Jamaica this winter?

I just joined FitBodies and will be attending Fit Beach at Half Moon Resort in Jamaica. Shhhhhh…..don’t tell Macgowan, but I’m gonna slip in his cycling class at Couples Tower and check him out. Pressure is on THE MAN! Maybe I’ll give a few shout outs and whoo-hoos to rattle his cage!!
Check out Fit Bodies…..use your certification for a teaching vacation!!!!
I am Spinning certified only, so when I saw this podcast this morning, I was super excited! I was looking on the Fitness Pro Travel site this morning at the Jamaica and Cancun resorts, but I didn’t see anything about Indoor cycling classes. Has the website just not been updated yet?
I’m hoping this works out soon!
I’m not sure when they will have their site updated but don’t let that stop you! They have very responsive support.
There are only so many weeks in a year so get over to http://www.fitnessprotravel.com sign up and make your vacation plans!
Ok, John – you twisted my arm! I signed up, and now just have to mail in my cert info. 🙂
Suzelle from Fit Bodies Inc. here. Welcome!!
I just activated you as a group fitness professional so that you can book a trip to teach spin at Couples Tower Isle. We also have bikes at Dreams Riviera Cancun which is available to cycle/spin instructors who are willing to lead a morning bootcamp style powerwalk each day as well as the spin class.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Amazing! It sounds too good to be true. As someone in the UK, could I still arrange a holiday/teaching with Fitbodies? If not, are there any UK or Europe based companys which are similar? I love to travel, I love to teach and to combine the two sounds fantastic. John, thanks for letting us know about this.
Jump on this Pru,
I’m sure Suzelle would even take someone from the UK 😉
If you have the qualifications get registered and make some plans for a Jamaican Holiday.
Many times the challenge is coordinating schedules (work, school, etc..) with the available weeks at the resort. There are times where Amy and I have a trip booked 9+ months out to make everything work.
Be sure to report back after your trip.
Thats great, thanks John. As we dont have kids and are already planning our summer holiday for 2010 (Yellowstone Park! Have to go and find a USA style indoor cycling class!) I am used to forward planning. Thanks again!
I am so excited to discover this opportunity! This would be a dream come true! I have submitted basic information and will go back and fill in details asap! Thank you for sharing this information!
I just registered for an account but didn’t see cycling listed as a specialty to use in searches. I’ll investigate further this weekend but wow! This looks like a great way to take a family vacation without breaking the bank. Thank you – ya’ll – for all of the work you put into this website. I’d be lost without you!
What is an ACE certified instructor? I’m certified by the YMCA – leading Aqua, Core (pilates) and spin. I’m very interested in this program and would like more specific information.
