The retreat is tailored to suit your fitness level (whether you are a beginner or a pro you’re made very welcome) and your fitness goals. The excellent trainers are highly qualified, certified and skilled, more importantly they take you out of your comfort zone and show you how exciting and rewarding exercise can be. They also give you the tools and advise to succeed after you return home and ensure that what you learn can be taken with you and real-life changes can be mad.

This is fitness the fun way with variety and choice. The by-no-means exhaustive list includes: kayaking, spin, yoga, Pilates, boot camps, beach runs, hiking, TRX, indoor rock climbing, surfing, trampolining, resistance training, circuit training and many more. Due to the beautiful locations, a lot of the activities take place outdoors and take full advantage of your surroundings; be that the beach or the mountains, no two days are the same!
