Most classes are in the fitness center but I taught a bootcamp on the beach. Fit guests this week! I could really turn out on instead of hold back. I didn't have interaction with the entertainment team though I did with the fitness complex staff. They are fantastic! It was amazing and I always enjoy my experience teaching. There are a couple class times not prone for participation. That's ok though. I have 3 more teaching vacations with Fit Bodies planned for this year!

Taught yoga and Pilates in the sports club and on the beach. Morning class is much more popular. My students were great! From all over! The Entertainment Team is very supportive from attending class often to helping me communicate the classes to guests. Amazing activities here!

I teach yoga and Pilates and at CSA I taught at the sports complex and the beach. They have mats, weights, balls, weighted bars. There was a sound system I could have connected my phone to, but I prefer to bring my own speaker because it's simple and easy. Yes I walked around and invited guests to join, Activity Board, They have you wear an employee badge that says "Visiting Fitness Professional" which is super helpful because guests ask about it. That gives an extra opportunity to talk about your classes. I think all resorts should do this! They were very nice and the bartenders were super funny. Loved my teaching vacation at Couples Swept Away. Such a beautiful resort and beach. Will return!

I taught Zumba and cycling in the beautiful fitness studio where they have a full assortment of equipment: steps, bikes, mats, hand weights...I used my own bluetooth speaker for music. The food, resort staff, BEACH are all wonderful. This was my first teaching vacation and LOVE IT! Went very smooth and staff are very helpful. They were excellent. The whole team were very friendly, helpful. This is a more fitness focused facility and everyone there was excellent to work with. Being my very first experience, I was nervous about how things would go but it went very well. Very glad for the experience. I will book again!

I taught yoga in the studio and on the beach. They have blocks, mats. For music, I used my iPhone and I brought my own bluetooth speaker. I always walk around and invite guests to join class and my printed flyer was also posted. The staff at CSA is amazing. Teaching vacations are the best I can't believe every yoga instructor isn't doing this. Couples Swept Away is better than ever.

I taught Group Fitness in the Studio, beach and they have Medicine balls, bars, bosu ball, stability balls. I used my own Bluetooth speaker. Fit Bodies, Inc. flyer promoted classes and Printed activities schedule, Activity Board. I loved the resort, the food, Spending quality time with my companion/family was great. I can't wait to book again and will within 3-6 months. Not as much interaction with staff as other resorts. I think this was because gym and studio were across the street from resort, pool and beach CSA is one of my favorite resorts. This was my 4th time at this resort but 1st time teaching. Will definitely do again. Yes Direct flight, used verifly for travel authorization and covid test, transport easy from airport, checkin no issues

I taught group fitness and Zumba, mainly in the breezy fitness studio and two classes on the beach. They have heavy bag, gloves, weights, yoga mats, spin bikes, exercise balls, elastic bands, trx (I didn't use them), weighted balls. For music, I used the auxiliary cable provided to their sound system. Classes are promted well: Fit Bodies, Inc. flyer, Resort social media, I walked around and invited guests to join, Activity Board...Denise was super helpful and responsive with travel issues due to COVID. I'll book again within the year!! Thank you, Denise!

The staff and entertainment team at Couples Swept Away are so great. All of them make us feel welcome and comfortable and are very fun to get to know. That is one of the reasons we love going there - the staff is wonderful!

As I wrote in Instagram everything has been perfect and smooth. Of course less guests because of Covid 19, but all relaxed and easy-going. Couples has kept the same Deluxe Standard as usual and I love feeling welcome home from the staff!!

I traveled the week of Aug 16, 2020. low occupancy at resort due to covid affects the number of students attending classes. I am well used to have different class occupancy and I take it well if no-one shows up, which was the case a couple times. In fact the students that attended my classes were not hotel guests BUT regular members of the fitness centre. They wanted me to stay for another week as they absolutely fell in love with ZUMBA!

I traveled the week of July 23d. Jamaica is very happy to see vacationers return. I flew into Jamaica during the covid-19. The country required a pre-authorization to enter. The process once we landed took about an hour, each passenger was interviewed. We were asked to stay on the resort and to have a wonderful vacation. We had our own shuttle to the resort, driver wore a face covering. Swept Away was amazing. The resort is spotless, staff are very diligent in their sanitation program. Staff are required to wear face coverings, but optional for guests. I felt very safe and taken care of.

I think the entire team is amazing! I wish I had found Fitbodies 10 yrs ago. The schedule on the Couples app was different than my schedule given by the staff so I'm not sure if that contributed to small classes. Be prepared for small classes the resort was at about 30% occupancy.

Our least favorite resort. Food is mediocre, unhappy and rude management in the athletic department, yoga space was very dirty, and grounds were on a busy street. The only perks are scuba diving and a huge beach if that’s for you.

If you are a group fitness style instructor, confirm the music setup for your classes, please. Taught Yoga and Pilates - two classes per day generally in the Studio 10:00-11:00 and 5:30-6:30. Tuesday and Friday am classes were 8:00 am Yoga on the beach and Friday 5:30 on the beach. Varied ages. Attendance was great for the most part - although the beach yoga classes tended to be the largest - @25. Studio classes averaged 10-15 for both Yoga and Pilates.

Plug and play but my phone didn't fit so I brought my own cube. Classes were held at the studio or on the beach, always at meeting point. Usually 12-15 people, all levels and very pleasant.

Most days were at the fitness studio 10 am and 5:30 pm, with the exception of Tues. 8 am on the beach and Fri. 8 am and 5 pm on the beach. I had regular attendance at the fitness studio of 6-8 people daily for both classes. Tues on the beach I had 14. Fri. only 2-3 people for both classes. In the mornings I taught a vinyasa flow class. For the afternoon class, I usually taught a yin or restorative class. I typically asked the afternoon class what type of class they would like and most often it was a vote for relaxing. Most of my regular attendees were older, 40's -60's. Every once in awhile I had a few 30 yr. olds.

I subbed for the Yoga instructor who was delayed in transit for the first 2 1/2 days, then did spin classes and bootcamp for last 2 1/2 days. Great set up. Donovan was very helpful in showing me the set up when I arrived. They are very organized and I appreciated that.

I had an amazing week at couples swept away. This resort has a mature tropical setting along the most beautiful beach! I had attendance at 8 out of 10 of my assigned classes. The 3 beach classes are heavily attended. I will definitely return here❤️ Love Negril ❤️

I taught a full body circuit class in the morning and afternoon, except Monday and Wednesday morning (that was spin that Donovan taught). I also taught a 30 min ab class in the afternoon. The aerobics room was spacious and had all the equipment I needed. It had fans and air-conditioning. I no one come the first two days, then I had a slow increase as the week went on. The most I had was three.The staff were very friendly and welcoming, the resort was clean and had great food. The big draw the week I was there was tennis. The pro has a following and most of the guests were there for her or used the extensive weight room. My guest and I talked up class to everyone we saw but it didn't seem to help attendance. It appeared most people were there for tennis. I love teaching and was very happy to have even small class. The visiting yoga instructor was also a delight and is a seasoned veteran of Fitbodies and was very helpful throughout the week. Overall great trip and very fun.

Most classes are taught in the yoga studio. Three classes are taught on 7 mile beach. The am and pm classes were all attended. There were many people who came 3 or 4 times in the week I taught. Swept Away always in an amazing resort to teach yoga. This was my 3rd time teaching here and will not be my last.

Taught several different classes during week: Spin, boot camp, abs, Power Walk, and Sculpting. Also was to cover aquacize for Donovan while he was on vacation but it got rained out. Participants ranged 2-6 for each class. Also helped several people out in the gym/fitness center throughout 2 weeks.Everything is simplified now; cord is there for ipod and you just press play! Bikes were in good shape; used steps, body bars, kettle bells, trampoline, bosu ball, physio balls, dumbbells and matts for boot camp. Helped to bring old pair of sneakers for beach power walk - sand can chew them up.Staff is very friendly, juice bar is nice and well stocked in fitness complex. They also have a new interval timing clock in aerobics room.
