Our Fabulous New Fitness Area!

Sometimes it is difficult to keep up an exercise regime while on vacation. OK, it's always difficult to keep up an exercise regime, but especially on vacation! At Small Hope, we have always offered our guests several ways to keep active while here - snorkeling, scuba diving, nature walks, kayaking, paddleboarding, etc. - but we also offer several ways to be inactive too, like hammocking or sampling our bar menu.

But now, thanks to our intern PK, we have a real fitness area, complete with ab, pull-up, dipping, and floor stations. PK came to Small Hope in June of 2015 to join our Divemaster staff, as well as assist us in our Nature Program. However, his passion, education, and training are as a personal trainer. So he decided to take his expertise and turn it in to something that our guests can benefit from.

He designed and oversaw the construction of our new fitness area, right on the beach, next to our hot tub. He also has provided detailed instructions for exercises on each station for all levels - beginner, intermediate, and advanced.

It is a wonderful additional amenity for Small Hope guests and staff alike. PK has even helped in doing some rehabilitation for Jeff's injured leg, and designing fitness programs for several staff members.

And considering how well our chefs feed us every day, and those darn conch fritters, it's really a great thing to have a place to burn those calories off!!!
