Sound of the ocean waves were perfect for yoga classes.

Two yoga classes 8:00 & 9:00am. Classes were well attended, we had a wonderful covered area overlooking the ocean where I saw whales

This was my 2nd teaching vacation at the Secrets Puerto Los Cabos, 5th overall, and everything was amazing! The staff is top notch, food was delicious and the amenities were 5 star! I taught an 8am power yoga class and a 9am gentle yoga class. Had around 10-15 students for the 8am and 5-10 students for the 9am. I took my best friend and we had a blast! Loved teaching overlooking the ocean... waves were pretty big, so I had to project my voice over the waves crashing! Can’t talk highly enough, and David was so nice! Thank You Suzelle and the team. Looking forward to Akumal next year.

It was chaotic the first day because of a torrential rain storm, the staff was scrambling. The place where the class was to be held was rained out and no other place was indicated on the activities list. I managed to find 3 participants and since the mats were wet, there were no towels, and the beach was closed, I did a standing class on one of the terraces. The next few days were great, by the ocean, then the maintenance people decided to sand the platform. (They started at 9:15 and the class had already started) The next day, we changed the venue and it was perfect.

The place is amazing. Everything was great except that the beach was a bit far from the rest of the resort and we could not go swimming in the ocean because the waves were too high. The classes went well. I taught at 8 am and 9 am and the Entertainment staff was very kind.

Class size was about 12 for the pilates and 5 for the body sculpting. I taught pilates mat, which was well received and made the body sculpting class with timed stations. I got creative and used the swinging seats at the bar for a few exercises.

I just finished teaching at Secrets Puerto Los Cabos this past week and it was truly an amazing experience! From the beginning, the Fit Bodies team were responsive to my emails and the coordination of my trip, which made me feel comfortable and excited given that this was my first teaching vacation. Once I arrived at the resort, the Secrets Entertainment Team were not only professional and attentive as well, but also kind throughout my trip. My friend and I, both Registered Yoga Teachers, each taught a morning yoga flow per day on the resort's deck with a beautiful view of the Sea of Cortez. Absolutely stunning! I highly recommend this resort, and additionally, its amenities and restaurants are superb. They host several events throughout the day/night as well, which is a great way to meet people and encourage them to take your class. :)

This was my first experience on a teaching vacation and it was absolutely fabulous from beginning to end. David and Lucas from the entertainment staff were very welcoming. I taught 2 Yoga classes per day, one at 8am and one at 9am, in an amazing location on the property in a gazebo literally a few feet from the ocean. Listening to the ocean waves crash as you teach, it was emotional for me. The food was excellent- Italian, Japanese, Mexican, Seafood, and a Market Cafe with breakfast buffet. A great coffee shop on site with Latte, Espresso, etc. Room accommodations were above and beyond. The staff were wonderful. I can’t say enough good things about this resort and experience. I’m anxious to book my next trip!

I taught 2 yoga classes 8am & 9am. Both classes were well attended. This is the most beautiful resort I have been to. So clean, it’s new, staff is amazing.
PROS - stunning, friendly, beautiful spot to teach
CONS - food just ok. Long waits with empty tables inside. Food then served cold, they must be understaffed.
Can’t swim in the ocean. It is a non-swimmable Ocean.
Have to get up 6am to claim a spot at the pool. No enough chairs for everyone.
No night activity - very quiet after 9pm.

I taught at 8 am and 9:30 am, each 45 minutes and either a yoga or yoga fusion. All classes had 8-15 people of varied levels of experience.My instructing experiences have been fanastic at Secrets The Vine, Secrets Vallarta Bay and Secrets in Jamaica.
I thoroughly love
Secrets in Cabo and I am returning next year for year 6.

This was my fifth fitcation - my first at Puerto Los Cabos. As always, it was excellent! The teaching schedule was two morning classes M-Sa - both 45 minutes, starting at 8:00 and 9:30. The class was advertised as yoga, but I was free to incorporate Pilates, which I did. I averaged 6-7 every class. Men and women - all Americans or Canadians. Newbies as well as yoga instructors, so I shot for the middle and kept it basic. The first few days were light, as the resort was sparse. Then, a huge company group came in and things picked up. The weather was a little cooler than I expected, but the sun at the gazebo was pretty warm as the morning went on. I knew going into it that the classes aren’t truly “back-to-back,” as there’s a 45-minute break between them, but I chose to use that time for peace and quiet. I enjoyed the ocean crashing nearby (and a few whales in the distance) and the beauty of the grounds (which are beautiful throughout the resort!), and I took reading materials. I could’ve put the mats away and repeated the process, but that would’ve been a waste of time, in my opinion. I saw entertainment staff minimally. The assistant director met me on Sunday afternoon after arrival, and one staff member came to one class and delivered a transport cart another day. That’s it. The director met me on the final day while putting mats away. I will definitely consider this location again!

Just finished my 5th year at this awesome property instructing yoga. Everything is amazing.! An 8am and 9:30 am 45 minute class per day with 9-14 per class average. Food is wonderful and so are all the staff. Going back next year and I can not wait.! Fitness pro travel is the best!

I taught 2 classes, one at 8 am and the other at 9:30 am. Both classes well attended. I had from 9 to 23 participating, with the most probably on Wednesday and Thursday of the week.
Nov 15th, 2017 3:10:39pm
taught and 8 and 930 am class. I had on average about 4 people. It’s a good program! I would highly recommend it.

This us the best program ever. Your correspondence is prompt and clear. I feel very fortunate to be part of this team and I have encouraged Manu instructors world wide and at home in Port Moody, Canada to join. I gave taught 6 times now and plan to return fir the 5th time next spring to Secrets Puerto Los .Cabo's!

4th trip instructing Secrets Puerto Los Cabo's! Going back for #5 next year! Love everything about this resort! Staff and entertainment team are wonderful.

David, the manager, and his team are very helpful and excited to have you there. Beautiful property, amazing place to teach at.
Dec 7th, 2016 5:10:31am
Classes were 8:00 am yoga and 9:30 am yogalaties. I had anywhere from 2 to 18 participants. I taught the 8:00 class on my last day (travel day) because the guests really wanted a "professional" yoga class. I was happy to help out after everything the resort offers us.

I taught a mat pilates class each day at 8am and 9:30 in the wedding gazebo. The participants varied each day from class to class, one class usually has between 7-12 participants and then the other would have 2-4. There was a significant difference in the temperature during the 9:30 class, but the ocean breeze made up for it.This was my first teaching vacation with Fit Bodies and I am hooked! The resort was absolutely gorgeous, the staff was incredible, and the overall experience was just awesome. This will be the first of many teaching vacations, I cannot wait to book the next one!
Oct 17th, 2016 4:38:54am
I enjoyed the teaching vacation a lot and will definitely do it again in other locations.

I love the teaching vacation oppurtunity and will continue to book teaching vacations with Fitbodies. I have always had wonderful experiences with the entertainment team. Los Cabo Secrets was a little different than most but it was a great resort and I loved the participants in classes. I only took two small items because the larger item did not arrive in time for me to take as the gift fund. The manager was not upset with me but did express his dissatisfaction with fitbodies for not receiving things he asked for this time and in the past. Just my observation but organization did not seem to be the strong suit at this resort. However, it would not detour me from going back.

This was our 4th trip with Fit bodies and one of our favorites although honestly we have never been disappointed. We took a taxi to the resort and it only took a little over 30 min. to get there. We were greeted and in our room withing 30 min. Our view was breathtaking. You will walk a lot but it's just more exercise and with all the great food I was grateful. It was low season so it was not real lively which was a nice change. You can not go into the ocean from our resort but we did when we traveled to Los Cabos for the day. We asked the reservation people if we can share a ride with another couple and it worked out great. We were dropped off at the mall by noon and we were picked up by 9. We took the glass bottom boat out on the Sea of Cortez and saw where the Pacific meets the Sea of Cortez, we even saw Sea Lions.....so worth it! My teaching experience was so fun and I met many people. I taught Yoga at 8 and 9:30 Piyo. The most I had was 9 people. I brought a speaker and hooked it up to my ipod and kept the music low and the people seemed to enjoy it. The entertainment staff were very supportive and if you want to teach zumba or water aerobics they welcome it. Although I can teach everything I stuck with yoga and piyo being that it was quite hot at the wedding gazebo. Probably the best setting I have ever experienced for teaching. I could have sat there all day!!! The staff will come and watch you when you won't even know. My husband just happened to see them come the first 2 days. They liked what I was doing and complimented me. Every night was date night and I loved going into the lounge to hear the jazz pianist, sax player, etc. We enjoyed Casino night and you can win great prizes. The first place winner at our table won a pass to swim with the dolphins, so don't miss out on this opportunity. We loved the Italian Restaurant the best but be prepared to stay there at least 90 min, service is a little slow but we enjoyed each others company..try their lasagna, the best I have ever had and I am a gourmet cook. We loved the Mexican Fiesta that was outside as well on Sat. night. The buffet was great but unfortunately they are only open for breakfast and lunch. Go to the grill and have rock fire pizza, wings, nachos, guacamole and great salsa and they have great burgers as well. I will definitely come back to this resort in the future.
