Surety bond producer Lisa Post serves at the helm of the Edward J. Post Company in New Jersey. In this capacity, she oversees the company’s operations as it provides surety bonds to the construction industry. In her free time, Lisa Post maintains a healthy lifestyle and she recently participated in the Biggest Loser Resort at Beaver Hollow Conference Center in New York.

The Biggest Loser Resorts are available at a few locations around the United States, but they all feature programs built on the idea of improving overall well-being instead of just exercising. Focusing on the five main pillars of nutrition, fitness, relaxation, education, and group camaraderie, the resort program lasts for one week and starts as soon as participants arrive. Upon check-in, guests receive a workbook detailing the program’s methods and activities, along with a schedule of meals and events. Guests then unpack and are given a fitness assessment and facility tour.

As part of the Biggest Loser Resort’s attempt to cover all five of its wellness pillars, participants enjoy a huge variety of activities. For fitness, guests may participate in everything from dancing and spinning to kickboxing and outdoor hiking. Meanwhile, nutrition ensures guests get three meals every day, education helps guests learn about nutrition fundamentals and body rejuvenation, and relaxation grants guests time to meditate and enjoy spa treatments. Through all of these, a strong group camaraderie is being formed, and participants are encouraged to seek support in others.

When to Visit Costa Rica

The president and owner of surety bond producer Edward J. Post Company, Inc., Lisa Post is an avid traveler. Having previously been to Bali and Bermuda, she spent the 2016 New Year in Costa Rica. While in Costa Rica, Lisa Post spent a week enjoying excursions, yoga sessions, organic meals, and spa therapies.

Costa Rica’s peak tourist season runs from December to April. During this time, the country experiences its dry season. It sees less than 2 inches of rain throughout this season and welcomes temperatures that average in the mid- to high 70s. The good weather makes these months perfect for exploring the rainforests or enjoying time on the beach. There are plenty of festivals held during these months, as well. For individuals planning a visit during December through April, reservations must be made several months ahead of time.

From May to November, Costa Rica has its rainy season, also known as its green season. Average rainfall jumps up to around 10 inches most months, but temperatures still hover in the high 70s in most areas. Most days are accompanied by rain in the afternoon, despite having sunny mornings. Further, any areas with unpaved roads become significantly more difficult to pass through, so visiting remote locations during these months is often avoided. Crowds and accommodation costs are lower during the rainy season, though, July and August’s brief respite from heavy rains brings in more tourists and higher prices.
