I taught Aqua Zumba! Super great! They had a speaker that I connected my ipod onto with an aux cable. I loved the activities and entertainment at the resort, and teaching while also on vacation! The food is great. I've been to this resort numerous times, I personally know a lot of the entertainment team and the staff so that was definitely a plus. Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to do teaching vacations

I so love this resort. Thank you amazing Fit Bodies Team. You all rock. Teaching yoga on the beach, poolside and in the gazebo is amazing. Classes were promoted well and over so spectacular.

Stayed here in 2016 and looking at going again. I taught a 30 minute Aqua Zumba class. Our room was on the ground level right next to the pool. We had all the same luxury as our friends who went as well. Food was great, staff was amazing! Access to neighboring resorts was also a big plus!

What a great way to relax and rejuvenate. The food is great. Plenty of yoga mats and towels and cleaner. Class is promoted well with the flyer but it's important I walk around, introduce myself and invite guests to class. Amazing E-Team. I'll book again within 9 months. Amazing people, super happy to have guests. Best experience! Love MoBay. So friendly and safe.

I taught one 30 minute aqua fitness class a day at 12:30. I had between 3 and 7 participants. The staff was very helpful in encouraging people to join the class. When we arrived to check in they had no rooms at either Secrets resort so they put us next door at Breathless. We had a fabulous room in a great location with modern amenities. We had access to all three resorts and it was an amazing experience. This is my 5th teaching vacation and probably my favorite.

Once again thank you Suzelle for the wonderful opportunities to teach in so many beautiful countries. Our trip last week to Mo Bay Secrets may have been our best yet! We were there in 2012 and 2013 but this year was just incredible! The resort entertainment is the best of all Secrets we have been to and the New Years Bash was over the top! It all began with a beautiful steak and lobster dinner followed by a dessert buffet that would make your head spin. After indulging we made our way to the beach to listen to a beautiful violinist play until 10pm. After that two bands played on a massive stage (which took all day to set up) and at midnight the firework display was AMAZING! At 12;15 DJ Nico took over till 2am. We danced in the sand all night. Bars were set up and an all night buffet of food was also available after midnight. The teaching was fantastic! Most mornings (except New Years Day) I had between 20-30 people for yoga. At 5pm I ranged between 6-18 for HITT Pilates. The resort does need more mats. Only 10 mats. Those who came from Breathless brought their own which were supplied in their rooms. We were able to go to the new Breathless whenever we chose. We had a drink on the roof top bar ( the views were fantastic) and one afternoon we went to watch a Bob Marley revival band which was outstanding. We could have gone for dinner but enjoyed our restaurants. The service was impeccable and the resort was spotless! We did stand up paddle, kayaked, played tennis etc. So much to do! The quality of the food was outstanding. Jerk chicken everyday. Five spots to eat lunch. Snacks all day long wherever you went. Top quality alcohol and the coffee was my favourite part. The staff go out of their way and the nightly entertainment is the best of any Secrets we have been to. I love the piano bar and you are are always outside which we love. Please tip the staff as they work very hard all day long. Try this resort out. You will not be disappointed. Ramona Gellel

I taught a pretty basic water aerobics class...steady state cardio with some higher intensity intervals mixed in. We averaged about 10 people per class. I would say the age range was 30-50. Teaching at 12:30 is rough; it gets pretty hot on deck! We got rained out on Tuesday. Everyone was fun and supportive.

I played my guitar and sang at 3 different venues. I was scheduled to play one hour each night at 7 pm t either the World Cafe or the Ocean Stage. I was rained out onc and moved to the Piano Bar. I was receved very enthusiastically at each performance, involving the audience with singing and comedy.

What a blast! This was my first *aqua teaching vacation and it was so fun. I taught M-F at 12:30 at the St. James pool. My tip... if you make a playlist...put about 10 minutes of fun songs you won't be using. They start playing your music about 10 minutes before class to get people in the mood. If they would move the class to 11:30 they'd have a much bigger turnout. By 12:30 people start heading to lunch so it's hard to keep them there since they've been drinking since 10am. Pick fun music like Jimmy Buffet, Zac Brown, latin or 80's music and keep the moves easy. Most guests don't want a hard workout...they just want to move and dance :) The resorts are fun. I loved the location on the bay. The piano bar every night was super fun. We met a lot of great new friends. I'm counting down to my next teaching vacation. Thanks fitbodies. If you have any questions. I'd be happy to respond. [email protected]

Secrets Montego Bay was amazing. We went in June, which is the low season, so there weren't as many travelers. I taught on the gazebo in the mornings, and it worked to put everyone in a "sundial" position on their mats. Afternoons were on the grass because they use all the gazebos for romantic dinners which are being set up. The service is outstanding, and the grounds incredibly beautiful. This was my first time using Fit Pro so I was nervous as to how this would all play out, but it was seamless! Thank you Fit Pro! :)

I stayed at Secrets St. James, but taught at Wild Orchid. Morning classes would reach up to 12 members, while the 5:00pm classes were light (1-3 participants). We did classes under the gazebo and it was very soothing to hear the waves crashing as we practiced. The resort itself was beautiful, clean and comfortable. My friend and I really enjoyed all the restaurants and the quality of food/service was superior. This resort is VERY conservative and VERY couples oriented...so for singles looking for some fun I would recommend Hedo. Overall it was a very mellow, but enjoyable time.

This resort is absolutely breathtaking. The people, the food, the service is a 5 star plus. I taught 30 minutes of water classes for a week. By the second day I had a entire group of followers. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone. I am already looking into booking my next trip in a few months.

This place is awesome! This was our second trip there, and we had even more fun than the first time. The staff is outstanding, friendly, and helpful. We were treated like royalty. We will be going back for sure!

Bring back up if using phone with wifi; resort wifi coverage was a little spotty using music through phone but I had an ipod as backup. Entertainment coordinators were very helpful with sound system and even reggae danced/followed music during class.Nice resort, had well equipped fitness center, Cassie the Entertainment Director was very welcoming.

Being a traveling teacher allows me the opportunity to get out of my own studio and experience meeting new people on a daily basis. Its refreshing and extremely rewarding in so many ways! We took our 2 young adult boys this time and they really enjoyed it too!

I was only asked to teach 1 30-minute aqua class Monday-Friday at 12:30. It was held at the main pool bar. The class was listed on the daily schedule but either the entertainment staff or I needed to yell across the pool a few times between 12:15 and 12:30 to announce the start of the class. I had about 12 participants coming and going, some dancing on their bar stools, some on floats, and many with a drink in hand. For this reason, Aqua Zumba was more successful than Aqua Aerobics/Kickboxing.
