Stay in a cool beach house, in the stunning bay of Pollenca, a world heritage zone famous for its outstanding natural beauty. This fitness and yoga camp is a great way to meet new people do something fun and healthy whilst having a wonderful holiday.This runs from May through to September. The boot camp is inclusive of lots of different activities from sunrise yoga sessions, group fitness training in a national park and on the beach, stand up paddle, cycling, and excursions to places of local interest.
You will be staying for seven nights in a shared beach house, based on quad person dorms. There is also an option for a shared double and deluxe private en-suite accommodation in a local resort.
You will stay in a beautiful villa based on shared dorms. The villa is located right next to the training areas, so rolling out of bed is easy. It is also a haven of relaxation when you are not training, equipped with a rooftop terrace with views of the ocean. Working out together and living together is a very bonding experience, a great way to make friends. Don’t worry about needing your own space also. The villa is sufficiently big with plenty of chillout areas for you to catch some quiet time too.
Due to the nature of the fitness bootcamp, people do not tend to have late-night the villa. You will be exhausted! So you can expect to get a good night's sleep in fan-cooled rooms. In the evening, there is an outdoor cinema on demand at the villa.
If you prefer not to share, Ultimate Fitness has a deluxe option available in a beautiful resort next door to the beach house. This is suitable for solo travelers or couples sharing and is inclusive of access to all of the resort facilities. This includes a pool and spa. Meals are taken at the beach house with the rest of the group.
This trip includes lots of activities, such as beautiful nature treks located in a World Heritage, excursions to local places of interest, and the beautiful Roman town of Pollenca where there is a traditional market to die for. There are also options for boat trips and cycling tours to name a few.
Most the training takes place in the morning, allowing the afternoons to hit the beautiful beaches, although you will also have afternoon training sessions as well. It is a really good mixture of being active and rest and relaxation. So you do feel fitter and better after it, but you have also had an amazing holiday. As with most of the bootcamps, people tend to come on their own such a great way to meet people, investing time in your health and fitness, and soak up the Mediterranean climate.
Training sessions can vary. Sometimes, Ultimate Fitness will take you into the mountains, and at other times, you will be in the national park or super cool beach workout session where you can dip into the Mediterranean after a hard training session. There are also plenty of other activities on offer as well not just a fitness training. The bootcamp is located in the perfect kite spot, so you can learn to kite surf if you’re feeling adventurous!
Fitness bootcamp is not all about working out, however, it’s important to stress the fun social atmosphere you get these types of camps. The majority of people do tend to come alone, which makes them a great place to meet people. Everyone is in the same boat, it’s a super supportive atmosphere and very conducive to reaching your fitness goals, without feeling like it’s a hard work.
At the end of the day, there are plenty of healthy restaurants to enjoy with your fellow bootcampers, not to mention the beautiful beaches to explore in your downtime. You might as well take full advantage, after all, you will now have the perfect beach body!
Don't worry about traveling alone. Most people who attend the camp, are independent travelers and arrive at the camp on their own. If you are concerned about travelling solo, don’t be. There is such a social atmosphere at the camp, and it is a really supportive environment that everyone gets to know each other very quickly. Serious physical exercise in a group can be quite a bonding experience! So it really does not take long for people to get to know one another.
