I love travel, and I love fitness! My name is Gabrielle (Gabi) Mazar, and I will be your Fitness Guide. I am a graduate of Arizona State University, having studied Exercise & Wellness. I am NASM certified, Stretch to Win FST certified, and PMA Pilates certified. While in college, I interned with a former body builder and from 2010-2012 I worked at a women’s gym until I opened up my own gym in 2012, Health Body Works in Tempe, Arizona.

I have traveled all over the world, from Australia and New Zealand, to Europe (including my family roots in Slovenia and Croatia), to Asia and Hawaii. I love traveling, and I love fitness, which is why I created these FitMinute Vacations. After visiting Costa Rica for my 30th birthday, I knew this wonderful place with so many things to do, such a beautiful landscape, and some of the best beaches and ocean in the world would be the perfect place to relax while staying fit and having fun.
