Granada Fitness Retreat Recap
A great excuse to exercise in Spain
A couple of weeks ago we flew down to sunny Spain for a fitness retreat in the hills outside Granada. This was the first of hopefully many retreats and provided very interesting reconnaissance for our next outing.
Retreats are such a great opportunity to be totally focused on you and your body. You get to train multiple times a day, eat well, learn new skills and soak up some precious Vitamin D in a beautiful environment.
It's not often that you can just concentrate on your training for several days in a row and get away from the day-to-day stress of life. You even get some downtime to read that book you have been meaning to read.
On our Granada trip, even though there wasn't quite as much sunshine as we had hoped, I learnt so much from my companions and about how a retreat like this can work best.
It was fantastic to be able to spend so much intensive time with my clients. The smaller group environment really makes the experience immersive for everyone involved and ensures maximum value for participants.
Clients used the Granada retreat to kick-start their fitness or to re-inspire themselves to persevere. They found that they learnt so much during that time and were able to indulge all of their health and fitness questions.
The itinerary included two training sessions per day, plenty of activities, getting to know the area and lots and lots of delicious, chef-prepared food. We stayed in a gorgeous villa up in the hills with a pool, tennis court and lovely views.
We will be hosting another retreat later this year. If you're interested in joining or just staying informed, add your email to the list!
