Kelly Majdan works with wellness retreat guests on strength and balance and assists in the development of a personal wellness plan. Kelly is an author, ADAPT Certified Functional Health Coach, financial coach and speaker who helps individuals live a life of wellness, longevity and financial security by overcoming the obstacles that hold them back. Leveraging her 25 years in finance, she developed the Personal Wellness Plan (PWP) to help individuals create a customized wellness plan similar to what would be created for a business or financial plan. Her sessions include:
Design Your Personal Wellness Plan - With so many “fix your health” promises out there how do you know what will truly help you meet your wellness goals? In this informative session you will learn the six-part framework to designing your own Personal Wellness Plan (PWP), customized to help you succeed at meeting your wellness goals, no matter where you are on your wellness journey. By the end of our time together you will also discover the one key thing that will make or break your plan and you will have a template to use to design your own PWP.
Strength and Balance - As we get older it is common to loose muscle mass and our balance. Both are key contributors to injuries that may lead to serious issues as the years wane on. This short class will take you through some basic moves you can do every day to strengthen your whole body and connect your mind to your movement, allowing to “catch” yourself should you trip in life.
Kelly lives in Texas with her husband, their two teenagers, two massive dogs and a very spoiled cat. You can learn more about Kelly by visiting www.kellymajdan.com.

The Retreat at Triple Creek Ranch is such a special place. I feel a sense of serenity in the land and on the trails that lift my spirits every time I'm there.
In these fast-paced times, having a place to go to completely unplug and immerse yourself in nature is priceless. We all come away having learned something new and feeling more connected to each other.
Cindy and Wyatt, along with their team, are absolutely fantastic! They make everything so seamless and delightful.
I can't wait to go back again soon!
