Fitness retreats have come a long way since they days when they were the exclusive territory of high-powered celebrities and the old-guard elite. Now, thanks to the help of gurus like Don Miguel, these wellness-oriented escapes welcome a wider audience while retaining their air of exclusive luxury. Don Miguel whips visiting travelers and native Dallasites alike into shape with intimate boutique-style fitness retreats that focus on weight loss and full-body conditioning. Each day, Don Miguel's Fitness spices up group workouts with Zumba or belly-dancing classes, as well as morning and evening yoga sessions. Don also leads guided hikes through the Oak Cliff Nature Preserve, a patch of densely forested land a few miles outside of downtown. When he’s not leading these treks or demonstrating an exercise, Don’s hard at work as the CEO of the Fit-for-Me Foundation, an organization that advocates youth fitness and wellness programs.
Participants jump-start weight-loss goals by following a four-day juice cleanse, which involves drinking plenty of fresh-pressed juices before and after each activity.
