2nd Annual Ladies Fitness Cruise Announced

Femme FITall, a travel group offering women affordable opportunities to get together, get away and get fit, today announces its second annual “Ladies’ Fitness Cruise.” The cruise sets sail from Jacksonville, Fla., and heads to the Bahamas Feb. 26-March 2, 2009, making two stops in Freeport and Nassau. Femme FITall has added Julie Groves to the lineup of seasoned instructors to the “Ladies’ Fitness Cruise”, bringing the total to four fitness instructors teaching a variety of classes on the five-day, four-night cruise.

“We are thrilled to announce that Julie will be joining us on our winter cruise,” said Kate Lichter, president of Femme FITall. “Julie is a lifelong athlete and yoga master, and she’ll certainly inspire our group of active women to smile while getting toned and burning off calories during her class. We had a tremendous response with our first fitness cruise, so we are pleased to add to our growing roster.”

This year’s cruise aboard the Carnival “Fascination” ship features a total of four energetic fitness instructors from Edwards Health and Fitness Centers located Naperville, Ill., and Woodridge, Ill. Joining Groves are Toni Gilroy (teaching yoga and pilates), Renee Nelson (teaching kickboxing and Hip Hop) and Carol Teteak (teaching strength training and cardio-boxing classes). Gilroy, Nelson and Teteak instructed classes on the 1st Annual “Ladies’ Fitness Cruise” in 2008.

In addition to working out by participating in yoga, pilates, strength-training and everything in-between, guests may choose to shop as the ship docks, relax by the pool, have fun on the water slide, swim with the dolphins and scuba dive, in addition to enjoying gourmet appetizing meals. The “Ladies’ Fitness Cruise” is a chance to renew friendships as well, according to Lichter

“I know how hard it is for busy women to plan a night out with their girlfriends, let alone a vacation,” said Lichter. “Femme FITall was inspired by and for active women seeking fitness and looking for motivation. We’ve taken care of all the details; all women have to do is invite their friends and show up.”

Packages start at only $879 for an inside cabin and $929 for an ocean view cabin. These prices include the five-day/four-night Bahamas cruise, airfare from Chicago’s O’Hare International airport to Jacksonville International Airport in Florida, airport transfers (to/from the ship), all meals on the ship (drinks additional), instructors’ classes, all taxes and fees, and a gift bag with a water bottle and logo t-shirt. Prices without airfare or including airfare from other cities are available upon request.
