My wife Amy just booked another teaching fitness vacation (http://www.indoorcycleinstructor.com/vacation), this time to Dreams Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for herself and our soon-to-graduate-from-college daughter Abby. Amy will be the Fitness Professional at this all-inclusive resort and she'll teach mind body in exchange for her and Abby's all-inclusive stay.

While she was researching the resort she did the math on the relative value of the accommodations (what you'd normally pay) divided by the 10 total hours she'd have to teach. Expedia says the best weekly rate for a basic room is $2447.20. Subtract the agents fee you pay to be placed and your compensation for teaching those 10 classes = $200.00 per class. Not a bad gig and recovering between classes on the beach ain't bad either.

There's now 6 locations to choose from as a cycling only Instructor, including my favorite Couples Tower Isle in Jamaica. GF Instructors can pick from 64 all over the Caribbean and Mexico. More here (http://www.indoorcycleinstructor.com/vacation) if you're interested.

That is an awesome gig.

Although I have not done this, I have a few friends that do this quite often since the early 90's. The opportunities and compensation has gotten better and better over the years.

Tkillion did you you spend any time on the island*?

*The island is a very special place that requires a high degree of body self-confidence :)
