Fully immersive fitness retreats usually run on set dates and can feature workouts such as circuit training, hiking and jogging or running, alongside private sessions with a personal trainer and attention to a lean, clean diet. If your exercise mojo vanishes when the weather turns cold, head off for winter sunshine – some fitness retreats take place in simply gorgeous sun-soaked locations. Depending on the venue, you can expect well-planned meals, bodywork sessions, stretching classes and often spa facilities to help you relax. Return to your life feeling brighter and lighter. If it’s time to get serious about your fitness, then this is the ideal way to do so.
