The Fall Foliage Wellness Retreat at 

Beautiful Lake Willoughby in Vermont (September 21-23, 2018)

Willoughby Haven (4 private acres with 400 feet of private beach) is the ideal place to spend 3 days Personally Transforming and Cracking the Code on What has Held you Back from Thriving!

How much would you benefit from taking 3 days to focus on yourself to crack the code on what has held you back from dropping the weight for good and thriving?

“It was awesome to watch people transform over the weekend. I loved that there was no judgment and that we were all accepted the moment we walked in.” – Jocelyn

“The retreat was amazing – I loved the workouts, the music, the dance breaks, the breakthroughs (WOW!) the interaction at the table, how the coaches were always available,
making new friends, going home with a plan that WORKS – loved how it was tailor made by our inner genius!” – Treacy

How fun would it be to make this your final attempt (ever) at dropping weight?

Join Award-Winning Fitness Expert, Best-Selling Author, 12-time Ironman Finisher and 22-time Boston Marathon Finisher Jonathan Roche and a bunch of the other coaches for three Powerful and Life-Changing Days!

The Coaches will work with you to crack the code on what has robbed you of permanent fitness and weight loss results.  You will leave this experience with the tools and personal roadmap (and ongoing support) to become the high-energy and healthy person that you deserve to be!

The Retreat format is a combination of:

• A Meet & Greet Friday evening on the beach:

• Non-Intimidating 30-minute Morning Workouts overlooking the lake each morning at 8AM:

• Presentations from the Coaches on Key Topics (with Lake & Mountains views):

• An Optional Beach Yoga Session overlooking the lake & mountains:

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the most amazing 3 days I think I’ve ever had in my entire life – not including marrying the man I love almost 10 years ago and giving birth to my 2 boys, of course! You’ve given me hope that I WILL succeed this time.” – Tara

“I was so impressed by the retreat.  I loved every minute.  The retreat helped me recognize that much of the pain I had thought was impossible to work through until I completed Physical
Therapy did not need to stop me.  They showed me “How I Can” as opposed to why I can’t.” – Cindy

Accommodations:  Please note that Accommodations are not included in your Retreat fee.  See below for options (including staying in one of the cabins right on the Retreat property).

Airport:  Lake Willoughby is a 90-minute ride from Burlington Airport so you will need a rental car or to meet up with other participants (this is what many participants have done in the past) and share a ride or car.  The ride is absolutely beautiful as it is through rolling hills.

Cancellation Policy:  If a family situation comes up or you have an emergency you can defer to a future Retreat (the cut-off for this is up through 30 days prior to the start of the Retreat).

Guaranteed Satisfaction Policy:  If you don’t think that the Wellness Retreat was the best 
money you have ever invested in your health then you can request a full refund at the end.  No questions asked.

Fee: $597 Per Person

VIP Day (Spend a Bonus Day with Coach Jonathan)


Spend the day with Jonathan on Friday, September 21st prior to the official start of Wellness Retreat that evening with the Meet & Greet at 6PM.


What is VIP Day?


It starts at 10AM and it will include a catered lunch and will end at 4PM.  Our small VIP group of 15 participants will spend 6 hours going through Jonathan’s 12 Laws of Permanent Weight Loss (the focus and title of his next book). 


This is not Jonathan doing a presentation.  It is the small VIP group sitting and overlooking the lake and mountains as Jonathan guides you through the 12 Laws and more-importantly how to implement them immediately in your life.


The fee for the VIP Day is $297 and if you don’t think it was truly amazing then you can email Jonathan post-Retreat and receive a full refund.


The 15 spots should fill up fast as the VIP spots for Retreat 11 sold out in less than 24 hours!

As noted above, accommodations are not included in your Retreat fee.

Stay right on the Retreat Property:

Starting with Wellness Retreat 10 in 2017 we rented out some of the cabins (there are 7 cabins on the property) and this option was a huge hit.

Each 2-bedroom cabin sleeps 4-6 people (one bedroom has a double bed and the other has two single beds plus there is room for a double bed sized air mattress - that we provide - in the living room ) and has a full kitchen and a screened in porch overlooking the lake. 

The cabins are rustic and charming and you will have access to the kayaks and canoes.   And you will be steps from the Retreat tent and the beach and the lake views are spectacular:

The fee is $1,000 for 5 days and 4 nights that can start and end anytime around the Retreat.
