Your all inclusive fitness holiday or fitness retreat is designed around you.  You’ll not only get fit and in shape but have the chance to relax and find the real you with a range of unique exercise sessions.  All this brings you a holiday that will get you in the best shape of your life.  Sessions include:

Ki-Boxing ®

These sessions are designed to teach you how to control the power of your breath under stress.  Sessions start slow, but get steadily harder into a blistering workout.  You’ll learn the skills needed to manage your stress levels back in the real world.  Sessions involve all the basics of professional boxing training, but without the sparring or full contact.  These sessions will improve core strength, co-ordination, speed, and balance, anaerobic and aerobic systems.  They also help develop a long lean looking frame and strip body fat.  This give you all the benefits of fight training without the bruises.

Core function circuit ®

These sessions are the ultimate mixture of core strengthening exercises, a cardiovascular workout and a range of unique exercises brought together to improve your all over body strength, muscular tone and your aerobic fitness.  It’s not just a circuit class, but much more.  These sessions are guaranteed to strip body fat and increase muscular definition.

Ultimate speed ®

These sessions are aimed at increasing your overall speed.  They are a mixture of exercises done at high intensity to offer a full on workout.  But remember the aim of this session isn’t about the calorie burn.  It improves your muscular tone, anaerobic fitness and of course speed (power endurance).  These sessions are guaranteed to make you faster.

The green workout ®

The green workout takes the idea of green gyms to another level.  Sessions are outside come rain or shine.  They seem initially the easy option.  They’re not!  The sessions use a variety of muscles in ways that no ordinary gym based workout can.  Training outside has great benefits.  You increase levels of serotonin, vitamin D and of course your tan.  Each session lasts up to ninety minutes.  You’ll work your body in different ways.  The added bonus is because these sessions tend to work your heart rate at about 65% max, they are very, very effective at stripping body fat and maintaining muscle.

Running and interval load training®

Running in Italy is a fantastic experience.  Not only can you run on the rural roads, the mountains provide an excellent opportunity for hill running and stunning views.  Road running is just for pleasure, hill running on the other hand is pure pain.  However, if you want something even more challenging you can have it.  We combine running with interval load training.  This combines the joys of the farmer’s walk used in strong man’s competitions with sprint training in a unique way.  This works your anaerobic system, develops strong toned powerful legs and strengthens core and shoulder muscles.  You’ll also see improvements in your speed and power endurance.

Absolute skipping®

In these workout sessions you’ll combine the calorie burning benefits of skipping with a highly practical combination of calisthenics and suspension training. You’ll tone, strengthen and burn away excess fat in this super-charged class.

Skip and core stretch®

Skip and core stretch® is a less intense variation of Absolute skipping®In this workout you will combine skipping with a range of core exercises and dynamic stretches.  You’ll strengthen core muscles and burn away excess fat.

Moving meditation®

Although these sessions are run at a gentle pace, it’s a great workout in its own right.  Sessions involve a range of dynamic moving poses combined with power breathing exercises.  The poses combine the best of traditional yoga, tai-chi, qui-gong and movements that appear in everyday life.  These sessions tone, stretch and strengthen the whole body.  They teach you how to use the power of your breath to increase your exercise capacity.  You’ll learn how to control and manage stress in real time in the real world.  Finally after the class you’ll feel relaxed and refreshed.

Neo-yoga and seated meditation ®

Neo-yoga brings a modern twist to the classical yoga poses.  You’ll still see some of the classic yoga positions, but combined with a range of deep functional stretches to create a fusion of modern and old. Sessions start with seated breathing exercises designed to not only relax the mind, but also increase lung capacity, peak flow and athletic performance.  These breathing techniques are taken into the yoga session that follows.  Poses are held for 30 seconds to 2 minutes.  The class is concluded with a relaxation session.

Walking & Hiking

You’ll have the chance to enjoy a good workout and see some stunning views in the middle of rural Italy.  We use a variety of different walks and hikes as part of the recovery process.  They allow you to clear and refresh fatigued muscles and mind.  If you’re passionate about walking we also offer 7 day walking holidays.  See our walking holidays’ page for more information.

Testimonials

We have had such a wonderful time.  The walking was fantastic.  The views breathtaking and we so enjoyed visiting real Italy away from all the tourists.  We met some lovely Italian people.  The accommodation was lovely, comfortable, clean and the meals, were out of this world.  The dinner at the Castle on the last night will stay with us for a very long time.  Thank you for such a wonderful holiday.

David and Beryl

I was interested in a fitness holiday for a while.  I took my time but was so glad to have booked with you.  Wow.  I was tired at the end of each day but happy.  The personal session was an eye opener.  The hiking was stunning and I even came back with a natural tan.  I will definitely recommend it to friends.

Rob

I did boxing down the gym so was really interested in the boxing programme.  My hand and eye co-ordination, balance and speed have improved beyond what I thought was possible.  I really miss the speed ball and will look into buying one for myself.

Gene

Although I was tired and asleep by 9pm every night, I was happy.  I have had a great time.
