Breakthrough Wellness Retreat 13 at 

Beautiful Lake Willoughby in Vermont (August 9-11, 2019)

Willoughby Haven (4 private acres with 400 feet of private beach) is the ideal place to spend time Transforming and Cranking the Code on what has Held you Back!

How much would you benefit from taking a weekend to focus on yourself to crank 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 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 23-time Boston Marathon Finisher Jonathan Roche and a bunch of the other coaches for a Powerful and Life-Changing Weekend in Vermont!

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!

“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.” – Candy

Accommodations:  Please note that Accommodations are not included in your Retreat fee.  See below for options.

Airport:  Lake Willoughby is a 90-minute ride from Burlington Airport so you will need a rental car or 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 mountains.

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 60 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. 

We have now had eleven Retreats and we are proud to say that we have never had a participant ask for a refund.  In fact, 55 out of the 63 participants at Retreat 11 in July of 2018 in Vermont signed up and paid in full for Retreat 12 in 2019 by the end of the last day of Retreat 11.  Why?  Because our Wellness Retreats are truly life-changing!

Fee: $597 Per Person


VIP Day (Spend a Bonus Day with Award-Winning Fitness Expert 

Jonathan Roche)


Spend the day with Jonathan on Friday, August 9th prior to the official start of the Retreat that evening (the Meet & Greet starts at 6PM).


What is VIP Day?


It starts at 10AM and it will include a catered lunch and will end at 4PM.  Our VIP group will spend the day going through Jonathan’s 24 Keys to Winning the Ironman of Life (the title of his next book). 


This is not Jonathan doing a presentation.  It's the VIP group sitting and overlooking the lake and mountains as Jonathan guides you through the 24 Keys and more-importantly how to implement them immediately in your life.


The fee for the VIP Day is $397 and if you don’t think it was truly amazing then you can email Jonathan post-Retreat and receive a full refund. 

34 people participated in VIP Day at Retreat 11 and zero people asked for a refund.  40 people signed up for VIP Day for the Sold Out Retreat 12 that will take place in July of 2019.

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:
