Everyone was wonderful and helpful! The overall experience was wonderful. The entertainment team is organized and classes always stayed to the schedule and on time. ET also helped set up and take away the mats and towels. LaDiva took her time to show me around and make sure I was prepared before my first class the following day. I traveled back in the fall, the hotel was at low capacity, so class sizes were small. But even with the small groups, everyone was enthusiastic and I had the same students join everyday.

I feel honored and blessed to teach once again in a tropical paradise with FitBodies. I have taken 35 tropical vacations and this is my 26th teaching vacation. Each one has been unique and wonderful. Staff are always amazing and helpful with kind hearts. The teaching site here is just so beautiful on the beach with white powder sand. I had anywhere from 7 to 17 guests daily. From food to rooms, staff, property.... just beyond amazing. Truly a great way to vacation. Sharing my passion for fitness with fellow vacationers from all over the globe. Making friends and inspiring others to pursue their fitness goals even when they return home is priceless. Thank you FITBODIES! Cap Cana is amazing just like all Secrets Properties.

I just finished a fantastic week at the gorgeous Secrets Cap Cana, which was even better than I remembered from my first trip here in 2019. I HIGHLY recommend this gorgeous resort. I taught a 45-minute yoga class at 9:30 am every day on the beach (5-18 participants daily), as well as a 30-minute yoga class at 5 pm in the spa hydrotherapy circuit area on Tue/Wed/Thu/Sat (0 participants on two days, 4-6 on two days). The entertainment team brings mats and towels for you (and takes them away), so truly all you have to do is show up and teach! The set-up is incredibly smooth. Most things about this resort were already fabulous, and they have improved on the points that I considered downsides the last time I was here. Food is now excellent and there is a vegetarian menu available for every single restaurant. Service is also speedy and accurate, and mostly very friendly. This is truly one of the top 5 resorts I’ve been to with FitBodies, and I would gladly come back in a heartbeat!

Taught yoga on the beach and in the spa. I used my portable bluetooth speaker for music. La Diva was great. Used whatsapp to keep in constant communication. My concierge was also super and communicated through what's app. No issues with flight, transfer, checkin or resort at all. Easy smooth process. Staff was wonderful!

The resort staff really go out of their way to meet everyone's needs. They are wonderful. It was my 19th trip to the DR and 10th to Secrets Cap Cana. Obviously I LOVE it AND I LOVE FitBodies Inc! Travel to Punta Cana airport is simple as is the transportation to the resort. The Resort is FABULOUS and the staff is completely wonderful! Only downside is the 5pm spa class. Temperature is too hot and no one shows up.

La Diva was kind, energetic, accessible AS all resorts we met a lot of great people through yoga, beach volleyball, dinner, etc. so much fun! We had a private transport it was easy and took about 20 min., so good both directions. Mornings on the beach and three classes at 5PM in the spa.

Great entertainment team and beautiful resort! Teach here! Great experience, I have been teaching with Fit Bodies for many years! Many resort choices and always growing! The evening classes attendance was very sparse to zero. It does slightly cut into the teaching experience because you know all day that you MAY have a class.
Jun 4th, 2022 10:11:26pm
I love the E-team here! Darling, Lil Diva, Red Bull, Cherry, Mr Choki- FAB Donr. All amazing people and proud to be on their team! Good class attendance for yoga. class is on the beach and in the spa.This is great!

I taught yoga 9:30am Preferred Beach & 5pm spa by pools. iPhone and Bluetooth speaker at beach. Spa had music playing. I always invite guests to attend class and introduce myself, telling them it is all levels. Class is also promoted with my Fit Bodies, Inc. flyer, Resort iPad. The Entertainment team is 100% on top of it, very dependable. Super great experience!

I taught yoga on the beach! No music needed. Can't wait to book another teaching vacation! The hotel staff and ET are great at this resort. This is my 4th teaching vacation. It is awesome as have been all the rest. I'm very pleased and impressed with Fit Bodies, Inc. Everything was easy and efficient. Some extra online documents needed to be filled out. Getting through customs was quite quick and easy. COVID testing was easy and efficient as well. All travel from the states to DR was smooth.

Just finished my third teaching trip at this resort. Prepare to be spoiled! Note: the teaching schedule has changed. The yoga instructor teaches Mon - Sat, 9:30 on the preferred beach and Tues, Wed, Thur, Sat at 6:00pm at the spa (take bug spray for the 6pm class!) The entertainment team handles set up of the mats and towels as well as putting everything away. They have new mats to use as well, thicker ones, not yoga mats. Also double check the schedule on -line and the printed sundial to make sure they sync. The Sat 6pm class was on the sundial but not on-line. I was never able to connect with the Entertainment team supervisor but it's easy enough to find someone on the entertainment team to let them know you are at the resort. Staff and service amazing! You will not be sorry coming here to teach yoga in paradise!

I taught yoga on the beach. They have mats and towels. Great E-Team who announced my classes and also usually participated. Overall, class was well promoted on the media devices and such. I always walk around and personally invite guests to class. I book these trips time and time again and this resort is definitely one of the favorites! Staff were helpful and the entertainment team set everything up for me in a timely fashion. Love my experience(s) with Fit Bodies. I have taught with them now for over ten years and look forward to many years of teaching vacations to come! Yes Nothing needs attention, I enjoyed my experience at this resort. I had to leave on Saturday afternoon due to my daughter going into labor with triplets with a very risky delivery , Missy was helpful and the entertainment team took care of Saturday morning class for me. Thank you all for understanding!

I just returned from an amazing week teaching at this beautiful resort! I highly recommend visiting and teaching yoga here, it is a little piece of paradise!
The E Team is incredible and beyond helpful. They always bright mats, towels and water.
The resort was at about half capacity so I did see low attendance in classes.
The schedule did change mid week. At the beginning of the week, I was scheduled to teach 7 AM and 5 PM classes on the beach (minus the 5 PM on Monday and Friday). I had zero attendance for the 7 AM, and 5-9 students for the 5 PM classes.
After my Thursday 5 PM class, the E Team asked that I just teach at 6 PM in the spa for the remainder of the week and no 7 AM classes. I had zero attendance for the remainder of the classes of the week at 6 PM, which was in a beautiful location!
From what I could gather, the E team and the Director are trying to incorporate sunset classes while offering morning classes that are not too early for vacationers/not too late bc of the heat. I left under the impression they would be trying to figure out a schedule that works best for the guests moving forward.
Everything about this week was fantastic and I would definitely return. Thank you for the opportunity!

Secrets Cap Cana is a wonderful resort for couples. Fantastic for a romantic and quiet week with opportunities to work out in a nice gym, attend yoga classes, take out a catamaran for free 30minutes a day, kayaks to use and paddle boards. During our visit, we enjoyed many meals from room service. Breakfast was delivered each day at the time we requested. We were active during the day and ordered room service for dinner three times. I taught yoga Monday-Saturday at 7:00am on the Preferred Beach. The entertainment staff set up the mats and towels each day so I had to be there at 6:55am and for the evening classes. Due to low occupancy, class attendance was between 3 and 6 daily. I taught a class in the same spot at 5:00pm Tues., Wed., Thurs., and Sat. Pilates was taught at 5:00pm on Monday and Friday, giving me those nights off.
Our favorite restaurant is always Asian at the tables rather than teppanyaki. We enjoyed The Market Cafe buffet for lunch alternating with Seaside Grill/Oceana for lunch by the pool. Ceviche was fantastic…several types. Fish tacos by the pool at a small grill were great. Nice touches included daily popsicles, a crepe cart, and fruit cups delivered to your beach chair in the afternoon.

This resort continues to impress and I have been here numerous times. The teaching schedule is one class at 10 AM on the beach for about 40-45 minutes. The E-team brings the towels, mats and water to the Preferred side of the beach. After class, have your participants take care of their mats and towels and pile them on the beach. The E-team will take care of them after that.
Depending on the day you could have anywhere between three and fifteen or more participants. They do not have many mats so many participants have to use just a towel. There is a little shade there for you and the participants but perhaps only enough shade for 6 -8 people. There are times that the beach could be quite busy, depending on what the other workers are doing that day so it may not be as quiet on days when workers are on site.

Yoga is held on the Preferred Beach next to the ocean. They have yoga mats and cleaning spray. I used my Iphone and personal BT speaker I brought along. Every staff member was friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. They made everyday amazing. No need to leave the resort you want to go on excursions. I loved this teaching vacation. It was my first of many to come. Travel was easy especially during this time which was nice. The resort was beyond friendly from the beginning to the end. It was truly the trip that my husband and I needed. I never enjoyed teaching Yoga so much and from such a beautiful spot!

Teaching beachfront here is amazing! They have mats and towels, and cleaner. Some classes I didn't use music. class was promoted well between introducing myself to guests, the E-Team is very helpful with promoting the class and I in turn would attend and encourage guests to attend their activities. Spending time with my companion is a favorite aspect of this program. This program's process is easy to navigate and everything is made easy for me. The Cap Cana staff went above and beyond to make us feel like family and love. Their service took everything to the next level and always made everyone feel special.

While this was my 17th teaching vacation with Fit Pro, it was my first to Cap Cana. It was truly a magical experience for any yoga professional. I had an average of 25 people per day and they arrived early to be able to set up their mat and be ready to go right at 10am. Classes were an hour. Entertainment staff was great..extremely professional and so proud of their resort. Someone met me every morning with the mats, and while I set them up and talked to the guests, they would get waters for everyone. I always bring music just to be prepared, but did not use it as the sounds of the ocean are perfect.
As for the resort, Secrets CapCana is beautiful. The beach has sugar white sand and is great to walk or run which we did every day. All of the restaurants were excellent and as a fish lover, I was in paradise. Every day they grilled fresh fish on the beach. The staff was amazing - no matter what job a person had, they were always helping guests. Will definitely be back here. Thank you Fit Pro for the wonderful opportunity!

This is a very well run resort, with excellent service, from the pools to the restaurants.

Book this resort NOW! What a wonderful experience I had this July. I taught one class daily on a quiet corner of the beach. Every morning a member of the fabulous hard-working E-Team brought mats and towels to me under a tree on the Preferred side of the beach. Classes were small and intimate. The room we had was spacious and luxurious. (The shower had two rainfall heads and could easily fit four people! ) There was extremely low occupancy in July . This did not effect the quality of service in the least bit. Great activities, wonderful restaurants and attentive service as always.

Had a fantastic trip the end of March. Yoga each day @10:00 am with up to 30 participants! Lots of shade and the participants basically just went where they were comfortable - first time teaching yoga in the round!!
Love the resort, food, room (upgraded to avoid looking at the ongoing construction next door - new HUGE Hilton resort), friendly staff and the Entertainment Team is super fun!

I’m just on my way home from a week at Secrets Cap Cana where I had a wonderful time overall and an especially fantastic time teaching.
TEACHING: I taught a 40ish-minute yoga class at 10 am every morning with 4-15 participants each day (the resort was quite empty, which was lovely). The location for classes is the corner of the beach area (with no real shade, other than some palm trees) and the entertainment staff kindly brought over yoga mats and towels every morning. So easy and wonderful – all you need to do is show up and teach. Couldn’t ask for anything better! Classes were a mix of experienced yogis and newbies.
RESORT PROS: Gorgeous, huge pool area and impeccable grounds/landscaping throughout the resort. Extremely attentive poolside wait service and lots of bars everywhere. Very large, wide beach area (but see below for some downsides). Excellent breakfast and lunch buffet at Market Café with endless options and lots of vegetables/healthy fare. Large, well-appointed gym and fabulous spa (don’t book full price – either take advantage of the “daily deal” on the iPad or take the entertainment team up on their offers to get you a discount on a regular spa service). Super strong and reliable WiFi everywhere. Extremely few animals/bugs/birds etc. A quick 15-minute drive from the PUJ airport. Overall, very friendly service and a fun, professional entertainment team. I tried aqua biking on Tuesday and Thursday (taught by a local professional fitness instructor) and it was fabulous!
RESORT CONS: Rooms were OK but nothing special by Secrets standards. Service in restaurants was always friendly but very spotty – we often had to wait for a long time, and half the time we didn’t receive (some or all of) the items we had ordered. Food was OK but not as good as e.g. Breathless Riviera Cancun or Secrets Playa Mujeres, and vegetarian options were virtually non-existent (I had steamed mixed veggies as several dinner main courses as none of the dinner restaurants had vegetarian main courses). The beach was very dirty with seaweed so swimming was not appealing. Also, the beach doesn’t extend far in either direction so you can’t really go on runs on it; we walked as far as we could and were back at our starting point in 20 minutes.

Secrets Cap Cana is a beautiful property. We were able to enjoy an upgrade to Preferred Club with the quiet pool and beach. There is also a more energetic pool with activities most of the day. The breakfast and lunch buffets were amazing with every food option you can think of. The coffee bar was very popular too. We enjoyed every aspect of our time at Cap Cana!With the beach breezes blowing, there is no need for music. Someone from the entertainment team arrives every day 5 or 10 minutes before class to deliver mats and towels. Then they return to pick them up. Such a nice service!
