A unique take on fitness and wellness: the new FUEL weekends by W Hotels

Beach side detox or poolside retox? Let’s do both.

Kick box, then kick it up a notch. Work up a sweat, then party down. This is how this high-end hospitality network feeds guests’ passion for staying in shape, in style. FUEL weekends feature insider access to some of the best trainers in the world, coupled with the playfully luxe experience of W.

This is not your typical wellness retreat.

By enlisting high-energy fitness experts to act as weekend workout guides – including Jason Wimberly, Joe Holder, Ashley Guarrasi, and Tara Stiles – W Hotels is launching next level, energy-soaked workout getaways in some of the most vibrant and inspiring destinations in the world. Guests can feel the burn during beachside sunrise yoga sessions at newly renovated W Fort Lauderdale, tone up with personal trainers at W Barcelona or learn the centuries-old art of Tai Chi at W Shanghai – The Bund.

W is kicking off the 2018 FUEL lineup at W Punta de Mita, May 25 – May 28, 2018 for a three-day, three-night non-stop schedule. W has been championing a “work hard play hard” mantra for years, under a unique spin on health and wellness the brand calls FUEL. These weekends will continue to expand the brand’s philosophy with fitness fans around the world, providing guests with everything they need to look good, feel good, go longer, and stay later.

Detoxing at a FUEL weekend will mean a choice of well-rounded workouts with experts in multiple disciplines including yoga, boxing, surfing and HIIT sessions, all taught by energetic fitness masters. Classes at the inaugural weekend range from strength training with Jason Wimberly, Founder of THE WALL, to Boxing Cardio with Rumble Guru, Ashley Guarrasi, as well as getting runway ready with trainer, Joe Holder and striking some yoga poses with Yoga Rebel, Tara Stiles, of Strala Yoga fame. The weekend will offer guests a taste of Nayarit-native dish preparations, curated by Chef Juan Guizzo, along with daily breakfasts.

For guests looking for even more action, add-ons during the first FUEL weekend include mezcal tastings, ziplining, ATV adventures, on-site spa treatments, beachside activities inspired by the local culture and even surf lessons set on the sparkling coastline of the hotel. Guests can also head out to explore the local town of Sayulita, a nearby village backed by the Sierra Madre Occidental mountains.

In addition to the Memorial Day FUEL weekend at W Punta de Mita, W will host additional weekend-long events at W Verbier and W Dubai – The Palm later this year, with more destinations coming up for 2018 and beyond, announced W Hotels.
