"My wedding was 3 weeks away and I couldn't seem to lose those last inches. I decided to attend the 3 day Fitness & Five Retreat because I needed the expertise and support that Nannette and her retreats offer. I worked hard, ate right and laughed with some fantastic women right into my wedding body and lost 9 inches in less than 72 hours. Amazing!"

"I went on The Fitness and Five Retreat in Big Bear this past weekend. To say the least I was skeptical, and to my surprise I was quite invigorated by the outcome. I ate healthy food that I would have never tried, (then came home and bought it and ate it the next day). I did yoga for the first time, and again always thought I couldn't do that, and low and behold, I was quite good at it, and it felt great to stretch that way. I met wonderful women, with similar issues happening with their bodies, who cared to know about mine. The venue was just picture perfect! I worked out harder than I ever had! I came back lighter, with a few less inches, and energized to keep doing it. I would recommend almost anything Nannette would suggest, as she is not a "pusher" but a woman who wants you to feel good about yourself, and she is willing to show you how. Thanks Nannette for making me a believer."

"We had a great time at the retreat. Nannette helped us in so many ways physically, spiritually and mentally. We met wonderful people. We never thought that we could do what she had us do, but we did it and lost inches!!! Would go again in a heartbeat!"

"Such a memorable weekend! Nannette, you're truly using the gifts God has given you, and making positive changes in peoples lives. You not only make a difference in the people you train, but you indirectly change the lives of people around them. My mood becomes immensely better after I read something from you, refer to something you've said, or do something you've taught. Thank you, again, for being my supporter and defender."

— Pauline

"I was stuck in a rut with my fitness and eating regime and I heard about Nannette's Fitness & Five Retreat. I could not believe what happened there. ... I lost 9 3/4 inches! I was just hoping to make it through the weekend. Not only did I reclaim some of me again in her workshops and lose valuable inches, but I also met some of the most amazing women! I can't wait to go again!"
