Join us for a 3 day, 2 night winter wonderland adventure March 1st-3rd in The Lower Hudson Valley, an Appalachian Trail Community. We will depart 10:15 am Wednesday, March 1st in a team van and return in the afternoon on Friday, March 3rd.
Day 1 will begin with cross country skiing*weather dependent, suitable for all levels, at a beautiful ski center that is often referred to as “New England, nearby!” The trails are groomed, and weather dependent, naturally snow covered. After Appalachian Hotel check-in, we will make our way to a fifth-generation farm in Goshen, New York. You will experience firsthand where all the growing, mashing, fermenting, distilling, aging and bottling of spirits occur! The afternoon includes an interactive tour, tasting and hands-on presentation from their resident mixologist, as well as a cocktail, which you will be making yourself! Don’t miss the opportunity to see a true “farm to bottle operation.” The evening will conclude at one of the Hudson Valley’s most distinguished dining establishments. We will enjoy fine, farm to table, dining in an almost 250 year old country inn.
Day 2 will begin with a fitful hike including walking meditation on the Appalachian Trail. We will enjoy a brisk, trek over wetlands and streams in the northernmost reaches of Sussex County. Following our walk, Cathy Quartner Bailey, Executive Coach and author of Show Up As Your Best Self: Mindful Leaders, Meditation, & More, will facilitate a conversation on how to establish a mindfulness practice to help you become more confident and grounded, even in the midst of chaos. Next, we will hit the Vernon Valley trails and snowshoe through natural terrain and enjoy an intimate, mountainside, lunch in a gourmet restaurant with spectacular slope side views. Get ready for farmstead freshness as we make our way to a local dairy farm where we will milk cows and be involved with the process of making cheese. Lastly, we will conclude the day with a cooking class culminating in a friendly competition using many locally sourced foods, on the site of a historic forge in a revolutionary era home built in 1760.
Day 3 will begin with an inspiring aerial yoga class. We will then pass through Warwick for a healthy and energizing snack. We will commence a second hike through forested hills surrounding a mountain lake creating a restful backdrop to take in views from a completely different vantage point on the Appalachian Trail. Before departing home, we will make one final stop to 100 acres of pristine farmland in the Hudson Valley where we will eat a lovely lunch made with locally grown produce as well as enjoy home grown cider made right from the farm from their very own apples, hops and other fruits, the growing buzz!
In the event of inclement weather, alternative indoor programming will be offered.

Hear From Past Participants!
Dana: Adrenaline lasting from our days together. Reflecting on ALL of the amazning experiences we shared. I’m in love with what we shared, learned and lived. Thank you Jen and Tara, xoxo
Fredda: Shout out to Jenifer Wirtshafter and Tara Jablonski for exercising our mind, body and soul for 3 wonderful days. Did some things that I’m completely comfortable with, like cooking and hiking. More importantly, did some things I’ve never done before, like aerial yoga, meditating, milking a cow, and snow-shoeing. Try Journey-Fit – you will love it! I’m definitely going on their spring trip to Buck’s County.
Lisa B: Nothing can be better when you get a group of like-minded individuals together to share a few days away to retreat, breathe in all of the wonders of the outdoors, and be a part of new experiences, whether it be a gastronomic feast or testing your physical limits. This can only be accomplished when you have a leadership team that is organized, considerate of every individual’s needs, and, in itself, is interested in your goals and achievements. Journey-fit, a division of Jeni-Fit, provided that and so much more in their Winter Journey-Fit trip to upstate New York. Having new experiences such as snowshoeing, and yoga trapeze, mingled with familiar passions such as cooking and hiking, all with a wonderful group of fun-loving, interesting women made this a great experience. Highly recommend – Lisa Berkower, Westfield, New Jersey
Pam: Can not say enough about this awesome trip! Everything was just perfect from the lodging, transportation, the hikes, snow shoeing, the food, visit to a distillery, dairy farm and cider farm, guided meditation, and much more! It was evident the careful planning that went into every aspect of the trip. Loved getting to know this amazing group of women. The thanks goes to our outstanding leaders. The joy sure is in the journey:) I will definitely go on future trips and cant wait for our reunion #journey-fitwinter17
Ilene: I have not stopped thinking about & talking about our wonderful trip! It was truly one of the most inspiring & wonderful experiences I’ve ever been lucky enough to be a part of! When Beth & I decided to go on Journey-Fit we knew no one at all& had no idea what we were in for! We decided to step out of our box a little. And I’m so glad we did because we were so warmly welcomed & by the end of the 3 days we all shared together, we felt like we were all old friends! What an awesome group of girls! And Jenifer & Tara….what can I say, except you 2 are the best! There was no stone unturned. Every aspect of our journey was well planned, well thought out & just perfect! It touched my mind, body & soul (as well as my passion for food & wine) It was an experience that will bring a smile to my face and heart forever! Plus those hikes really humbled me! I though we were in awesome shape until we climbed stairway to heaven! Guess we have to work out harder, lol! Looking forward to being a part of another journey-fit again in the future! It was truly a very special experience! Love to all. Ielene
Beth: Thanks to all for making our first Journey-Fit such an amazing adventure. You made us feel so welcome. Jen and Tara you are great, xo!
Laura M: Truly a five star journey! Journey-Fit was more than I ever imagined it to be. I chose to go on the trip to experience something new and refreshing, not to mention, a desire for some well deserved time away from my normal routine. Every aspect of the trip was well thought-out, and cleverly planned, thanks to Jenifer and Tara. From the healthy meals and snacks, awesome fitness/wellness classes, community supplied agricultural education, and breathtaking views, it was nurturing for my mind, body, and soul. Enjoying the company of workout buddies, and parting as “friends” was priceless. I anxiously await the announcement of where the journey will take us next. Count me in!!
Kingsley: Journey-Fit was beyond expectations. Thanks to all of you for making it a fantastic experience. I already recruited someone for the next trip – she’s suffering from Journey-Fit envy!
Joann: I want to thank Jen, Tara and all of you again for such a great trip. It really went off without a hitch! As I was telling my husband all the things we did, I cant believe how much we did in 3 days—bike ride with a tour of a colonial garden and museum, winery tour, painting (Ok I’ll even admit I didn’t mind the painting), wine tasting, wonderful dinner – and that’s just day one…wonderful breakfasts, organized farming, hiking, pole dancing, cooking class and dinner, yoga, kayaking and then a final lunch in a great quaint cafe! Its really amazing a testament to the hard work and thought Jen and Tara put into it. Thanks again!
Corinne S: What an unbelievable trip and an unbelievable group of ladies! I loved spending time with all of you. Thank you Jenifer and Tara for organizing such a wonderful experience. Hope to see you everyone soon. Xo, Corinne.
Dana L: The experience and memories are fabulous. I am in awe of what you pulled together. So thankful for the experience and love the group dynamic. This was a beautiful trip…thank you for all that you did to make it special. Loved meeting everyone! Xo, Dana
Cyndi: I had so much fun! You are all an incredible group and I can’t imagine doing this trip with anyone else! You were all fantastic and thank you to Jeni and Tara!!
Cyndi: I am so happy to be part of this group. I have been thinking about all of you since I got home last week and I have to tell you all that you are all amazing. This was honestly the first time in my life that I was with a group of women that were so kind and non-judgmental. I have been raving about the trip non stop. I was surprised at myself when my husband asked if I would go again and without a seconds thought I answered “In a heart beat!” What a wonderful experience I had and I have all of you to thank for it, but mostly Jen and Tara and Laura for inviting me!!!!
Cathy: Thank you all for the opportunity to do the three of the things I love eat, drink and meditate – and with the amazing women – hats off to Jen and Tara for an inspiring experience!!
Cindy B: My experience with Journey fit was wonderful. I experienced activities that I truly enjoyed and focused on myself. It was relaxing to be away from the daily grind of life and just live in the moment with no distractions. It helped me realize that I need to take time to care for myself and do things that I enjoy. I returned to my home energized and renewed.
Carole D: When I saw the details about the Journey-fit trip it immediately sparked my interest. The trip was including all kinds of things that I would love to try out but would never do it on my own. Outdoor bike riding, hiking, yoga, kayaking, farming, wine tour. Indoor painting class, wine tasting, farm to table dinner, getting to know new and empowering women. So I signed up! I am fairly new to the Jeni-Fit family and it was a real challenge for me to take on this trip, socially, physically and emotionally.
I recently lost my father and have been taking care of my mother, my family, my grandson, and continuing to work several part time jobs. I needed to focus on me, my health and my feelings. Journey-fit became my personal challenge. I went in there with a positive attitude (Jenifer and Tara would settle for nothing less) and it paid off. I met a wonderful group of caring, kind, women. Jenifer and Tara could not have been more accommodating, inspirational and just plain fun! I recommend the Journey-fit to anyone who needs to move out of their comfort zone and take time to nourish yourself in mind, body and soul.
Tina: Thanks for a truly memorable experience…….lots of genuine smiles.
Jenny: It was an amazing event and I thoroughly enjoyed it, even the pole dancing:) I am sure you are receiving a chorus of accolades.
Carole: I’m still flying high, feeling rejuvenated, and thinking about all the new, inspirational and cool chicks I just spent the last 3 days with! Jenifer and Tara, you nailed it. Namaste, Carole.
