Donna, is a profound program leader at running retreats. From our initial introduction, she was warm, passionate & approachable. She is extremely generous with her knowledge and gracious with her time. She is an intent listener and empowered me to make some significant changes to my lifestyle, and more importantly, enhanced me mentality. Donna exuded energy and enthusiasm, is compassionate and genuine in her encouragement towards each retreat member. Donna was the perfect example of ‘practice what you preach’.

Elite Athlete Diving Australian Olympic Bronze Medalist
Donna’s online training programme rescued me from the exhausting decision and fatigue of what, when and how to exercise.
Following her cardio, strength training and yoga steps have been a no-brainer. She’s done all the work for me to follow. All I do is the work-outs each day and she’s always there - in video and in person - when I need her for guidance, moral support and as a hugely positive influence. I feel very lucky to have her in my life.

“ The term “life changing” is certainly apt and applicable when referring to my personal journey with Donna Abbate and Fit For Life: Mind Body and Soul to date. She and her team have taught me to take ownership of my health and to take action. It has been transformational especially from a spiritual and mindfulness perspective - which was never a priority in my life. She has taught me the essence of balance and how each component is interlinked i.e. Mind, Body and Soul. These skills lay the foundation for success which she empowers within oneself. I am truly grateful for this incredible journey I have enjoyed with Donna, one which is on-going and the very essence of who I am. The ultimate professional with a caring and compassionate manner for which I am forever grateful”

After attending two detox retreats,I found myself returning home with the same old habits and was unable to sustain long term change. Donna’s Embodied Women’s Wellness program and ongoing coaching sessions provided me with the structure and support I was seeking, and has enabled me to see significant changes in my body composition, food & lifestyle choices.
The program offered me advice on nutrition, resistance training, yoga and Pilates, but also gave me access to Marcello’s wonderful mindfulness, meditation and Qi Gong videos. 

Donna and Marcello genuinely want to see people become the best version of themselves, they are the authentic item and their programs are the vehicle to enable you to do that.

Donna facilitated a 7 day detox wellness retreat for the residence as we sailed from New Zealand to Australia on the World of Residensea.  
Her Qigong was a game changer as we sailed through the Milford sounds and her spirit and determination to support all the guests was abundant, leaving each of us with fond memories and long lasting gratitude.
