New Zealand is known for it’s national rugby team, it’s indigenous Maori culture, and most of all it’s picturesque landscape. The southernmost part of Polynesia is home to active volcanoes, spectacular caves, deep glacier lakes, verdant valleys, dazzling fjords, long sandy beaches, and spectacular snow-capped peaks.
With a unique array of vegetation and animal life, much of which developed during the country’s prolonged isolation, it is the sole home of the long-beaked, flightless kiwi, the ubiquitous nickname for New Zealanders.
We will experience much of what New Zealand has to offer on this unique down under fitcation!

Your Fitness Guide
Gabrielle (Gabi) Mazar
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.
