If you’re into health and fitness (who isn’t...?!), we think everyone should go on a health & fitness retreat at least once. We’ve just come back from our trip to South of France, and the trip was amazing.
We’ve come up with our 5 best reasons why your next holiday should be a fitness retreat.
Check them out...
It’s all about you! Take some time, and focus on you. Not just for an hour after work either. We’re talking at least 3 days of pure you time. Turn off your phone, don’t check facebook, and tune into your body. Being on a Fitness retreats gives you the time to think about your goals, what’s important to you, and clears your head for what you need to do when you get back home. We spend so much of our lives doing things for other people, it’s good be selfish sometimes.
Domino affect - We talk about momentum a lot in the fitness industry, both good and bad. The more you do of something takes you further down that particular path. Give yourself a chance to build some positive momentum, get used to eating well and pushing your body physically. These positive decisions have a knock on effect that can lead to a huge shift in your thinking and ultimately results.
Try something new - Mix things up and experience something that you’ve never done before. On our trips to France our activities range from river crossing (via a zip-wire), to rock climbing and lots more in between. The buzz you get from achieving something new is incredible. We often find our clients taking up rock climbing when they get back home as a new part of their fitness programme. Variety is key as you know, so mix it up and try something new!
See the sights - You can see some amazing places on your fitness retreat. Beautiful beaches, stunning mountain ranges & peaceful lakes are all perfect backdrops to any workout or recovery session. Many retreat holidays give you plenty of free time to enjoy the local area, so you get to do a bit of sight seeing whilst getting in shape.
The Ultimate Kick start - There’s no doubt about it, fitness retreats are one of the best ways to kick start a fitness plan. It’s all about being around like minded people, having time to ask questions to your trainers, and generally soaking up the positive vibes. Being solely focused on your health for a few days can open up new ideas and ways of thinking that can stay with you for months afterwards. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, if you have certain issues or problems, no doubt either your PT will have come across it, or a fellow client will have. Use your fitness holiday as the ultimate kick start for when you get home.
