Hey! I’m Cat.

I’m a former professional athlete who understands the real-world juggle of a demanding career and how fitness priorities change. But how important it is to keep having adventure, even when our bodies feel less in shape for it. That’s what inspired me to rebuild Smiley Fitness Retreats this year, 2024 with all new, updated messaging and truly bucket list adventures.
