Sound system is stored in a locked cabinet. I was given the key for the week. Music could be heard from the fitness room to the pool for Aqua class. The schedule was T/Th 8am Yoga Stretching (not on the schedule because the class is only held when there is a guest instructor so class attendance is based solely on word of mouth) so the 1st class no one came. I had 3 the 2nd time, all female between 30 and 50 years old. M/T/Th/F 9am was scheduled for cardio, but only 1 person came Tuesday, arriving late and wanting to do intermediate Yoga. He was in his 50's and raved about the class. M/T/Th/F 11am was Aqua Zumba and I taught all 4 days, even when it was raining Thursday (it stopped 10 minutes into class). I had between 3 and 10 people, men and women age 50-70. The majority of guests at this resort are fit and enjoy a challenging workout.

The teaching location is amazing. It's a beautiful covered/spacious area with mirrors- right near the ocean. I taught pilates, cardio, and aqua on Tuesday and Thursday and pilates and aqua on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. No one showed for evening cardio on Monday or Friday at 6pm (it was over the holiday and usually resort staff come to this class they mentioned). Off Wednesday and Saturday. I had a handful of participants for each class. It was nice to get to work with them individually too based on their needs (since the classes were small with it being a holiday week).This resort is beautiful and the resort staff are lovely. We plan to book for next year. Absolute paradise. Thank you!

My first experience and it was awesome! Very laid back and the staff and vacationers were just terrific! I really talked up the classes and people responded and told others and were so appreciative. Resort is small and quaint and you get to know people and the staff. The only negative was having to be prepared for the 6:00pm cardio class even though minimal to no participants-seems like a bad time for people. But that was still nothing compared to how wonderful it was for me and my family! I'm excited to book again!

Couples San Souci is a relaxing resort with two beaches, one that is "nude" until 5pm. 3 restaurants that close two nights a week for a buffet on the lawn. Nightly entertainment was limited, however, the fire show was exceptional. Food and service was wonderful. The resort doesn't mention Fitpro instructors so unless you spread the word, you probably won't have anyone for yoga. Schedule was M&F 11am 30 min water and 6pm aerobics (no one showed for aerobics); T&TH 8am yoga, 9am aerobics (no one showed) and 11am water. No teaching on Wed & Sat. However, Fitness Manager asked if I wanted to teach 11am water on Wednesday and not the 6pm aerobics on Friday (which I did). Beautiful resort with lots of trees/flowers/shrubs! Lovely!

The resort is beautiful and the room was large, clean and comfortable with a lovely view. The food and drinks are great with a wonderful smoothie bar right at the fitness center. Lots to explore!!! An amazing teaching experience.

I had a great time teaching and vacationing at Sans Soucci! I taught the exact schedule posted so I knew going in what to expect. Darren (the gym manager) was awesome, nice and very helpful. The resort is so unique in that some buildings are built into the cliff landscape! So tropical and lush (especially since it rained a lot!). There are loads of steps everywhere, but hey, we are fitness instructors so enjoy the mini workouts! Food was fabulous and the staff so kind and friendly.

Classes were great. My best attendance was the aquacize at 11 am. Since San souci has such a vast property and so many steps, most of the people I spoke w preferred to walk the property instead of doing an aerobics class. Yoga classes were well attended as well.

My classes were very well attended. I taught from 8-10 am each day and from 4-5. Some of the afternoon sessions were rained out. Overall I had a very engaged group of 8-10 regular attendees. Sans Souci is a first-rate property. The general manager (Pierre) is extremely supportive of the tennis program and the facilities are well maintained. Contact the pro (Zuki Hong) prior to your travel so that you can bring the needed equipment - tennis balls are not always the most needed item.

I was at Couples Sans Souci Feb. 5-12. It was amazing!!! I taught 10 classes with Wednesday and Friday's off. The staff was really great, very friendly and helpful. The most beautiful beach.

I taught about 3 classes almost daily. The classes ranged from yoga to Bootcamp to Aqua. The experience was wonderful! Staff was incredibly helpful and flexible. Students seemed to love the classes and enjoy their vacation all the more because of the amenities this resort had to offer. I absolutely love teaching at Couples San Souci. Everyone is helpful and flexible. One tip I would give is make sure to get to the gym area with at least 10 min before class time starts. It's helpful to get the area prepared and if you have any music/equipment questions you'll have time to get them answered before the class is scheduled to start.

Aqua Zumba in the mineral pool Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri 11am 30 mins participants 4-8 Zumba and belly dance Mon and Fri 6 pm, Tues and Thurs 9 am Participants 2-5. I also performed at the Thurs night show. Alex has taken the Tues and Thurs 8am yoga off the schedule for visiting pros,In my opinion Agua would be much better attended if done in the main pool near the bar, people were asking me for it, and the surface is flat wheres the mineral pool is all slanted and difficult to work on. Love the program and will continue to choose Fit Bodies !!

I taught tennis 8-10 in the morning and 4-5 in the afternoon from Monday to Friday. It was the low season for the resort and I had approximately 2-4 people in the mornings and afternoons. The tennis courts were located in a quiet area of the resort.This is an older and smaller resort but the natural beauty of it is amazing. The staff is incredibly helpful and friendly. As a result of its smaller size, there is a great chance to interact with most of the guests staying there. I highly recommend it to others.

I have been doing this since 1990 and you are doing by far the best job when comparing to others

I was at the courts from 8-10AM and 4-5PM (Mon-Fri). In the mornings it was mainly instruction with the guests and they all had a great time! The afternoons I wound up working until close to 6 PM but it was my choice as a couple of local kids came out for the extra hour (with the invitation from the resident pro). This was very rewarding and I was glad to do it.This was my first time using Fit Bodies and I had an amazing experience. The resident pro as well as the General Manager was very inviting. The GM came out to the tennis courts a couple of times to join in to play tennis and everyone loved having him out there! All in all the staff, guests, as well as myself had a great time.

Couples San Souci is a fantastic resort with and incredibly organized fitness department. There is a dedicated Fitness Manager who is in the gym M-F 8-5. Gym is well maintained, group exercise room and mineral pool have unbelievable views. Gym has AC but group exercise room does not.

Couples Sans Souci is an exceptional resort. The courts have been newly resurfaced and the management is extremely supportive of the tennis program. The participation in classes can vary considerably from week to week so come prepared with drills designed for a range of players on court. Radcliff is the resident pro and together with local players and the GM (Pierre), there will be ample opportunity to get some good games during the week.

I have encouraged other fitness people to take advantage of your programs where appropriate (certified trainers).

Excellent resort, very accommodating. General manager Mr. Battaglia loves his tennis.
Feb 25th, 2016 5:55:05am
Taught 2.5 hours a day, .5 hours Aqua fit and 2 hours either cardio and/or yoga. Participation ranged from 2 to 10 participants.Great resort, many healthy food options, and really nice workout/yoga facilities. I will definitely return to this resort to teach!
