About The Teacher

A day in the life of Luke Barrett is anything but ordinary. As the creator of GEOFIT, he’s able to combine his lifelong passion for fitness, travel, and culture to create a series of one-of-a-kind international experiences for travelers of all fitness abilities. 

As an internationally sought-after trainer for his approachable style and technique, he’s on a mission to provide each of his clients with specially curated adventures that leave them feeling confident, rejuvenated, and worldly.

Through his experience as Vice President of Tiger Muay Thai Global, a destination Muay Thai/MMA program, Luke discovered the unmet demands of fitness-oriented travelers looking to combine their love of fitness with their love of travel. 

After scouting the globe for unique destinations that offer both one-of-a-kind fitness offerings paired with customized local cultural experiences, Luke’s GEOFIT programs have been thoughtfully developed to cater specifically to the athletic adventurer.

A host of certifications, industry recognition and boxing titles also follow his name, if you’re into that kind of thing.

Notably, Luke is a USA boxing coach, NASM Certified Fitness Trainer, former head boxing coach at The Ohio State University, 2011 Golden Gloves Champion Boxer (Light Heavyweight Champion) and elite-level fitness trainer at top Manhattan studios.

 But knowing Luke, he’d rather you put those skills to the test with a great workout.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
