About Sol Fitness Adventures

About Sol Fitness Adventures 

The leader in customized outdoor fitness retreats, Sol Fitness Adventures can trace its roots back to its first trip outside of Zion National Park in 2004. Sol’s founder, ACE-Certified Personal Trainer Melanie Webb, was working at The Sports Club/LA in Washington, D.C. (now Equinox). Melanie’s clients caught on to her enthusiasm for outdoor adventure and began to hire her to plan and lead their private active vacations. These savvy travelers were bored by the destination spa routine and off-the-rack group trips and wanted to see their improved fitness applied to a real world setting. Melanie went to work combining her passion for travel and expertise in fitness and the outdoors—and the hybrid Sol Fitness Adventures was born.

Being a part of our client’s renewal and creating new friendships is what keeps us motivated at Sol. Travelers want more from their vacations, and all of us—kids and adults included—are in desperate need to unplug, go outside and play. So how do we reach more people? We help guide others on their own outdoor fitness retreats in three ways: 1) Wellness Real Estate Retreats 2) Fitness Retreat Private Coaching 3) Self-Guided Utah National Park Trips

Wellness Real Estate Retreats

Is your community or development ready to weave the health and wellness benefits of fitness and nature into the fabric of your community? Melanie works with your marketing and development teams to:

1. Lend industry expertise to panel discussions and planning meetings
2. Incorporate best wellness practices into community programming
3. Lead fitness retreats that highlight community features, and
4. Host VIP’s on exclusive excursions

Fitness Retreat Private Coaching

Have you dreamed of leading your clients or patients on an outdoor fitness retreat? Sol Fitness Adventures received its first permit to guide a multi-day hiking trip near Zion National Park in 2004. Since that time we’ve had our fair share of successes and mis-steps. Who knew there would be such a learning curve?

Along with guiding our own clients we’ve dedicated ourselves to building a community of fitness professionals who want to help others enhance their connection to the outdoors. Get your own fitness retreat off the ground with one-on-one phone and online consultation with our Founder, Melanie Webb. Combined with the tools provided in Adventures in MOTHER NATURE’S GYM, you’ll receive the expedited help you need to succeed on your first attempt.

Group exercise instructor and small business owner Chris Kirchoff worked with Melanie over 5 separate calls to plan and lead her first hiking fitness retreat to Nepal. Not only did Chris sell out her first trip, but she also set up a Go Fund Me and raised $10,000 to help rebuild an orphanage after the earthquake of 2014 wrecked an entire community. Here’s what Chris had to say of her experience:

“Melanie Webb and her program have coached and guided me every step of the way as I launch my new fitness adventure service. As a business owner and a mom, my time is limited and Melanie has provided a unique, cutting edge forum to allow me to learn at my own pace.” 
– Chris Kirchoff, MA, ACSM HI-FI and Owner, Kirchoff Fitness, Seattle WA
