The Gym on 5th Winter Getaway

You do not have to be a member of the Gym on 5th to attend. Partners and friends are welcome to join!

Las Flores Resort, El Salvador

December 3-8, 2023


Las Flores is an environmentally conscious boutique resort

designed by Salvadorian architect Rodrigo Barraza Dominguez perched

on a dramatic natural cove with a front row seat to a world class break.

Sink into your flow and connect with your surroundings on the open-air

yoga deck situated cliff top with views and sounds of the pacific

hundreds of feet below. Prepare yourself for the day, in the open-air

restaurant steps away from the black sand beach with endless freshly

made natural juices, coffee, and a locally sourced breakfast. Slip away for

an afternoon siesta in a beachfront hammock. Take a dip in the infinity pool and enjoy a smoothie or a well-earned cerveza from the swim-up

bar. Rejuvenate your body with a massage at the oceanfront spa.



Beginner, intermediate, or expert surfer, long board, or short board...

we’ve got you covered. Las Flores is a classic sand point break that

caters to all levels! Beginners will benefit from ninety minutes a day of

personal surf instruction. The advanced surfer can enjoy two boat trips

per day, as well as the point in front of the resort. Intermediate surfers

can benefit from personal surf coaching as well as the option of one

boat trip per day.


If you need a break or want to pass on surfing altogether, your surf pass

can be credited each day for a variety of other activities including: Spa

Treatments, Fishing Tours, Kayaking, Spider Monkey Tour, Alegria

Lagoon & Coffee Plantation Tour, Las Tunas Tidal Bar Tour, San Miguel

City Cultural and a Shopping Tour.


Each day will consist of a body weight beach WOD right in front of the resort on the beautiful black sand beach as well as a yoga class on the yoga deck perched above the Pacific.


Casey and Emily Montandon are the owners of the Gym on 5th and will be leading this Winter Getaway in El Salvador! As most of you already know, the core pillars of the gym are quality, effort, and community. This getaway will be all about spending time with the community you all have created, this time in a new environment. You'll have time to relax and unwind by the pool, in a hammock, and with daily yoga sessions. You can also workout on the beach with us and maybe even try something new. For those of you who have never had the opportunity to try surfing, this is the perfect chance. We are so excited to head south with you all this winter!
