What do you get when you place the healthiest brands, journalist and influencers all under one roof? An evening of exhilarating wellness that is nothing short of inspiring. That’s exactly the setting that took place this past Thursday at PFC Fitness Camp—Southern California’s healthiest destination at Omni La Costa Resort & Spa. The PFC Fitness Camp team welcomed businesses, brands and individuals all representing the various pillars of PFC’s philosophy—THINK. EAT. MOVE.— and all with a shared mission to make the world a healthier place. For a few hours our special guests enjoyed a myriad of mouthwatering creations from PFC Fitness Camp Executive Wellness Chef, Chef Jason Kieffer and healthy elixirs from Beaming along with live entertainment from Grammy nominated singer, Sacha Boutros.
Renowned health journalists Karin Asp of O Magazine and Dr. Oz, Jen Furmaniak of Health Magazine, The Chopra Center, University of California, Beaming, Fox News, the Life Wellness Institute, Modern Luxury, Kitchen Konfidence, Samantha Binkley of Healthy on You and acclaimed wellness chef, Michel Stroot (to name a few) joined in on the celebration and the food!
Perhaps the most anticipated guests of the evening, however were Ray Stewart and JJ Peterson of the A&E extreme weight loss documentary, Fit2Fat2Fit. Ray and JJ embarked on an emotional and inspiring journey where Fitness Trainer, JJ Peterson gained 60 lbs. before losing it all alongside his client, Ray Stewart, who dropped a whopping 150 lbs. after kicking off their weight loss mission together at PFC Fitness Camp. Ray and JJ watched with a speechless crowd the premier of their journey and what may be the most inspiring weight loss success story.
To help fuel the evening of wellness, Chef Jason Kieffer did not disappoint with a worldly theme of healthy culinary creations including a made-fresh-to-serve Kalifornia Burrata Salad, Vegetarian Vindaloo, perfectly seasoned Carnitas Street Tacos and capped the night with a Five-Spiced Ahi Tuna live cooking demonstration in tandem with PFC Nutritionist, Jessica Janc.
However, the wellness did not stop at Sacha Boutros last song, an incredible rendition of Barbra Streisand. A select few journalist traveling from all parts of the nation experienced a restful evening at Omni La Costa Resort followed by an early morning breakfast with Chef Kieffer and PFC’s fitness team. The well fueled crew headed to the gym for a PFC bootcamp to rev up their cardio and strength conditioning, then concluded the day (as all days should end) with a relaxing massage at La Costa’s award-winning wellness & weight loss spa. It just doesn’t get any better than that.
