Primal Retreat: Yelapa, Oct. 17-21, 2018

Get away from the day-to-day routine and get energized & healthy with us in Yelapa!

Do you ever sit at your desk, looking out the window, and wonder what it would be like to disconnect and leave your normal schedule behind for a while… to get out in nature and feel what it’s like to thrive in a totally natural environment, instead of cooped up in your stuffy office?

Do you wonder if your technology and modern lifestyle are actually getting in the way of being healthy and happy?

You know that being inside all day under fluorescent lights isn’t good for you. You’re bored… of the usual brown bag lunch and you admit that your sandwich and bag of chips aren’t the best choices.

You’re tired… after work but you manage to squeeze in a quick trip to the gym on the way home. You run through a familiar set of exercises, but your mind is elsewhere thinking about your to-do list.

You tell yourself you’re going to make a change. You’re going to mix it up and try something new. You want to eat better and you want to get in better shape.

…But most importantly, you want to feel better! You want to feel fresh and excited!

You need to reconnect with the primal lifestyle!

Sure, there are many great things about modern life… such as access to information, the speed of communication, and advancements in technology.

But we continue to ask:

  • How can we live in the present… without making tradeoffs in our health & fitness?
  • What is the lifestyle that allows us to work with our biology… instead of against it?

Ryan developed Prime Retreats by taking all he has learned over the past 14 years and applying the most effective aspects with the premise of total immersion in a natural environment. He learned shortly into his career what the human body desires as far as movement, nutrition and lifestyle. He learned that although everyone has certain specific physical, social and dietary needs, there are a set of rules that are typically universal.

Ryan is a certified Exercise Coach and Holistic Lifestyle Coach through the CHEK Institute, an Olympic Weightlifting Coach through USA Weightlifting, a Nutrition Coach through Precision Nutrition, a Personal Trainer through NASM, ISSA, and ACE and practices Muay Thai and Freediving.

“Flexibility, strength, quadrupedal movement, balancing, fighting/fleeing, swimming, climbing, natural running— the list can go on. Our main objective is to teach you some foundations and something new every single retreat, but most importantly to have a whole lot of fun.”

The best place to turn a new page in your health and fitness journey is in an environment surrounded by other people who will support you.
