Toronto-based fitness club owner, instructor and entrepreneur Marc Lebert to debut his new “Buddy System” on board and lead classes on Carnival’s “Destiny” ship this spring
Femme FITall, a travel group offering people affordable opportunities to get together, get away and get fit, today announces a brand new fitness cruise – the “Lebert Fitness Cruise” – which is set to sail April 2-6, 2009. Femme FITall is partnering with Toronto-based fitness professional Marc Lebert for its first-ever co-recreational men’s and women’s fitness cruise on Carnival Cruise Line’s “Destiny”, which departs Miami, Fla., on April 2nd and will sail to Key West, Fla., and Cozumel, Mexico, returning to Miami on April 6th. The “Lebert Fitness Cruise” will also debut founder Marc Lebert’s new “Buddy System” to guests.
“Our women’s fitness cruises have been a rewarding and successful experience for two years, which is why we are so pleased to launch our first co-recreational cruise,” said Kate Lichter, president of Femme FITall. “Mark’s exceptional fitness savvy and innovative ‘Buddy System’ is something both guys and gals will benefit and learn from, all the while staying active while on vacation.”
As a certified personal trainer for more than 10 years, Marc Lebert will be on board teaching classes throughout the cruise. Lebert is the same person who developed the “Lebert Equalizer”, which has become an invaluable tool for trainers everywhere and is changing group exercise programming in the United States and Canada. This portable and versatile tool is also a big hit with boot camps, team training and school programs (Note to editors: Web site link follows at the end of this press release).
In March 2009, Lebert will launch a new product called the “Buddy System.” Cruise participants will be some of the first to try it out and be able to purchase/order their own at a substantial discount and could potentially win one. The “Buddy System” is portable, versatile and unique. This new training tool offers unlimited exercise and program designs. Participants work together to pull, twist and push, which is fitting (pun intended) for trainers to work closely with their clients and for pairing up team, boot camp or in-home training.
In addition to Lebert, the energetic Nelson Bolarinho joins the “Lebert Fitness Cruise” April 2-6, 2009. Nelson is a certified personal trainer and a spinning, boxing and boot camp instructor who has spent the last 10 years of his life learning over and over again the benefits and importance of fitness and training. With a background in personal training, he takes the same attitude in reaching his one-on-one clients’ goals, and focuses that mentality into all his classes/camps/sessions. He is very passionate about the industry and strives to ensure quality over quantity in all his training.
In addition to strength-training, yoga, pilates and cardio classes, the fun-filled five-day, four-night cruise amenities also include gourmet appetizing meals, bar / music, a basketball court, water slide, shopping excursions, socializing with friends, relaxation by the pool, kayaking, scuba diving and more.
