FARGO — According to Ladyboss Midwest, laughs and many empowering memories can be made at their FLOW retreat.

The retreat runs from March 3-5 at the Grand View Lodge Spa and Golf Resort in Nisswa, Minnesota.

"This is a great opportunity to connect with other women," said Ladyboss cofounder Laura Caroon.

After Ladyboss started in 2018, they've been thinking about this retreat for awhile.

"We decided this year that it was time," Caroon said. "So many women are burned out right now, and that's something that we've been finding across the spectrum."


To help women who may feel this way, they are bringing in heavy hitters — like former gym owner and MMA fighter Mariah Prussia — for a self defense class, along with keynote speakers who want women to walk away with a strong sense of self worth.

"We'll be talking about how to command a room, and also building your network of professional connections," Caroon said.

Other Fargo fitness experts will also be joining in, like Fit Elements manager Saree Janz.

"The way that I explained hypnosis to people is that it feels a lot like a guided meditation," Janz described.

More than 100 women are signed up so far, and Ladyboss expects around 250 total tickets to be sold for the event that emphasizes inclusivity.

"We're excited to have women from all spectrums there," Caroon said.
