Epic Retreats (a Breakthrough Health Company) was started by Jonathan Roche.  He is an Award-Winning Fitness Expert, Best-Selling Author, 12-time Ironman Triathlon Finisher, 22-time Boston Marathon Finisher (running 21 straight to raise funds for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute) and the Founder and CEO of Breakthrough Health.  


Jonathan’s first book “The No Excuses Diet: The Anti-Diet Approach To Crank Up Your Energy & Weight Loss!” was featured on the Today Show and hit #3 on the Amazon Best Seller List.  His second book, "The 12 Laws of Permanent Weight Loss" will be released in April of 2018.

In 1995 Jonathan weighed 224 pounds and was wearing size 38 pants when his Dad (who was obese) died of Cardiac Arrest.  Jonathan lost 44 pounds after losing his Dad and has kept it off for 22 years.  He has seen first-hand how health problems can negatively impact families and is therefore very passionate about helping people lose weight and keep it off for good.

Breakthrough Health's Mission is to positively transform 100 million lives by 2025!

Jonathan and his team from Breakthrough Health hosted their first Wellness Retreat
in Colorado in 2012 and have now had ten retreats in five years.  They are honored and proud that 41 out of 48 participants at our last Retreat signed up and paid in full for the next Retreat by the end of the Retreat weekend.  That speaks to just how life-changing the Retreat are!

The goal of the Retreats is to create a supportive and empowering environment in a beautiful and tranquil setting.   The focus is on mental breakthroughs that lead to permanent weight loss but more importantly lead to energy, positivity, optimism and true happiness!
