The Instructor

Keith & Michelle Baumgard
Fitness Ambassador

Keith and Michelle Baumgard are the dynamic duo behind My1Fit Life, One Fit Widow, and Live the List Nonprofit.

After losing her husband in 2009, Michelle became engrossed in fitness not only as a lifestyle but also as a profession. After losing 80 pounds, she decided that her love of fitness was more than just a pastime and she wanted to spend the rest of her life empowering those with loss to live their life to the fullest with the help of health and fitness. Michelle ended up leaving her corporate position to become a certified personal trainer.

Keith has been involved in fitness his entire life. Keith's degree is in Exercise Science and Sports Medicine, and he enjoys studying the muscular system of the body and developing unique and effective programs. Keith started his career as a personal trainer right after college and continues to work with clients still today.

Since launching My 1 Fit Life in 2013, Keith and Michelle's virtual training programs have reached thousands of people, and they currently have close to 3,000 members worldwide. Michelle and Keith contribute for the Huffington Post, Prevention Magazine, and many other fitness outlets. Michelle just released her first book for HarperCollins on October 24, 2017. Healthy Healing offers the reader a chance to use fitness and movement as a grief coping mechanism and encourages a full and fit life after loss.

UPCOMING DEPARTURES

Samasati Retreat & Rainforest Sanctuary

The architecture of Samasati’s Caribbean casitas were designed to silently sit within the terrain, climate and natural offerings of this land. We deliver comfort within an earthy simplicity. We have ten Caribbean style casitas built with precious native woods that are nestled within lovely tropical gardens and the lush forest. All casitas have private bathrooms and a spacious veranda overlooking the rainforest and South Caribbean Sea. Some casitas have lofts that accommodate up to three people. All of our casitas have comfortable new mattresses, which are king, queen, full or two singles. Our guest House bungalows are smaller private rooms with a choice of a full or two single beds. The bungalows are semi-private with each sharing a bathroom with one other room. Outside, there are large verandas with hammocks overlooking the rainforest.

Our spa house consists of two cozy rooms sitting high up on a hill. A cool breeze gently brings in just the right amount of fresh air during your treatment. This is a sweet space where our guests feel comfortable and nurtured.

Samasati was amazing! It's perfect for nature lovers, tucked away in Costa Rica's rainforest with a quick 10 minute ride to the beach. The drive from the airport is long ( 4 1/2 hours approx.) but the views are worth it. The staff at Samasati are so wonderful!

This was an adventure outside of my comfort zone, but it was the most amazing experience. The bus ride in was 5 hours and we were made aware of this, however, being prepared and actually doing it is another thing. I would recommend taking the plane if you can make it work. But that should not overshadow the breathtaking views, the quaint casitas, and of course the amazing hospitality of Stephanie and Scott and their incredible staff. Stephanie organized all our excursions for us and we were a group of 21! That was no small feat. She listens to what you want and advises based on what you want. I have no regrets booking this trip and can safely say if you want the real rainforest experience this is the place to book! Howler monkeys and all!! Thanks
