Some Nice Words About My Work

Striving To Provide The Best Women's Weight Loss Retreat (And More!)

Cat Smiley is a luxury wellness coaching and retreat company for women, specializing in transformative small-group journeys and personal development. We’ve been in business since 2001, and maintained an A+ accreditation from the Better Business Bureau since then. It’s a pleasure and joy to be part of our customers fitness journey!

Operating as sole proprietorship Cat Smiley Unlimited, we’re a small business with a big heart. I employ up to 30 talented team members per year to support my multi-passionate entrepreneurial goals. These include coaching services, social media content, marketing projects, retreats and workshops. And of course, I couldn’t run this show without my wonderful corporate partners! The Westin Resort and Spa Whistler, Marriott Bonvoy, National Geographic Journeys, G Adventures, and Whistler Eco Tours.

Nearly 20 Years In Business

Nice to e-meet you! Since my first fitness programs in 2001, I’ve worked hard to provide the best women’s weight loss retreat and coaching programs possible.

While most retreats run by fitness coaches are a ‘pop-up’ thing one or two weeks a year, I’ve been operating weekly retreats (20-40 weeks per year) for 11 years. Retreats require a lot of business skill, hard work, logistical planning, customer service, people skills, adaptability and experience in hospitality. It’s so much more than just being a fitness trainer who partners with a hotel. My combination of business experience and expertise in multiple health industries is what sets my program apart from the competition.

But don’t just take my word for it! Come see for yourself why many happy customers visit us each year!

Licensed, Insured, Experienced

I hope to earn your trust and business, based on both customer results and proven safety track record. One quick google you’ll see our zero-claim history in 18 years of operations – and over 7 million of fitness training services sold. Not bad considering we work mostly with higher risk clients who are outside healthy weight range.

Growing up with medical parents I learnt valuable work skills; confidentiality, ducks-in-a-row legally, and always learning new job skills. When on the trails for 6 hours hiking with clients, it’s handy they can ask about exercise programming for cancer or if carrots are too high in sugar…
