About this trip

Workout alongside the gorgeous blue ocean. Dive into a clear freshwater cenote. Hike through the Mayan Ruins. Stretch on the sand to the sunrise. Dine on delicious food in the jungle. 

These are just a few of the experiences you can expect on this incredible, 7 day retreat in Playa Del Carmen. 

The Ultimate Sweataway is your unique opportunity to mix sweat, sand, and sun in one exhilarating and exciting getaway package.

Hosted by award winning health and fitness blogger, Beverley Cheng, we're bringing you to the most gorgeous and eco-friendly resort that one can find down south. You will leave feeling refreshed, accomplished, strong, and ready to take on whatever comes your way (also - the cute tan doesn't hurt!). This retreat was designed with the belief that you don't have to 'let yourself go' when you're on vacation. You can still experience everything you want to, without the guilty feeling of overindulgence afterwards!

What to expect:

We'll be staying at the Sandos Caracol - a beautiful eco-resort which lies on an extensive natural area at the edge of a lush and exotic jungle. You'll be surrounded by cenotes, mangroves and natural lagoons in an ecological environment for those who like to live in harmony with nature. Not only that, but the resort is located on a beautiful white sand beach on the exclusive Riviera Maya.

Each day will have two movement sessions - whether it is a high intensity workout, yoga on the beach, or a stretch session at sunset. There will also be mindfulness and goal setting workshops, meditation, a hands on authentic Mexican cooking class, Mayan Survivor, and an excursion to a secret location!

Enjoy daily a la carte breakfast in the secluded Adults Only section of the resort, offering traditional Mexican dishes, amongst other classic favourites. Dinners will be in unique settings around the resort, offering us all a chance to catch up on the day, while enjoying perfectly curated menus. All food is included, and we are able to match and dietary restrictions. (Don't forget to mention your restrictions/needs at checkout!) 

The Movement Sessions

The Movement Session workouts will be lead by group fitness instructor Beverley Cheng. Each workout will be unique in either location or training style.

We will be squatting, lunging and running our way across the sandy beach. Sculpting our abs and arms above a clear cenote. Burning out our legs and glutes around an authentic Mayan ceremonial pit. Expect to get a killer sweat on under the sun, while taking in the incredible surroundings.

The Movement Yoga Sessions will be lead by a certified yoga & reiki instructor. These tranquil yoga sessions will be overlooking a lush tropical lagoon, or on the beach for sunset.

Hi! My name is Beverley and I am a health and fitness blogger living in Toronto. My fitness journey started about 10 years ago when I started playing rugby at a very competitive level. After I decided to stop playing, I started my blog, Born to Sweat, a site dedicated to workouts, wellness, and real talk. In addition to my blog, I also run workout classes every week in downtown Toronto. I have modelled for brands such as Lululemon, Under Armour, New Balance, and more. I also run one of the largest fitness competitions in Toronto called The Sweat Games! Fitness is my absolute PASSION, and it has been a dream of mine to run workout classes on the sandy beaches of Mexico. I can't wait to bring you along!


Thanks to Beverley's level of engagement and Veronica's precision and meticulous organization, the Ultimate Sweataway greatly exceeded expectations. The Eco resort was great as was food and drink. The group activities were really amazing and see awesome workouts with a lot using simply body weight. I would have liked a little bit more down time to lay by the pool/beach. I would also preferred a more engaging excursion like going on a catamaran and snorkeling especially if Cozumel is notorious for it. Some of the Mayan activities were a bit of a snoozer. What was most memorable was hands down the people. I got to meet so many strong and incredible humans. I only wish we had another 1-2 days together to have more time together. Overall, highly highly recommend!
I truly had an amazing week with Beverly and would recommend everyone to embark on this amazing retreat with her if you have the opportunity. From arrival to departure, you can tell that her team really put in a lot of thought into the workouts, group activities. It was the perfect combination of getting your butt kicked, relaxing by the beach/pool, and restorative yoga and stretching session.
The ultimate sweat away trip was the best week of my life. Beverley Cheng and Veronica executed the week to a perfection and I left forever grateful to be part of this experience. I was amazingly challenged in all of the work out sessions, in a good kind of a way. Beverley's coaching, encouragement, and knowledge is profoundly cherished by me and I'm absolutely grateful I did this with her. I loved every moment of this trip, being with Beverley and Veronica, and meeting new awesome amazing like minded humans. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. With much love and gratitude from the bottom of my heart!
The trip was amazing, The workouts were challenging and well thought out and the work shops were hugely beneficial. The only thing I might have changed is fewer scheduled afternoon activities so we had more unstructured time. The mindfulness and Goal Setting workshops were enormously beneficial, especially in context of the fitness - caring for mind and body, but I would have rather had my afternoons free (before the evening workout) to explore at my own pace. Next time, consider making them optional or simply providing a list of activities available and those who are interested can schedule their own days accordingly. I would absolutely do one of Bev's retreats again and I have already recommended it to several people!
The Ultimate Sweataway wasn’t just a trip, it was a life-changing and personal experience. Beverley and Veronica went above and beyond to make sure this retreat was smooth for all the guests! Everyone on The Ultimate Sweataway pushed and encouraged my mind and soul to try new things outside of my comfort zone. The two workouts a day by Beverley were fantastic and there was enough free time to enjoy all the sun, guac and margaritas. I would definitely encourage anyone to take this retreat, you won't regret it at all!
