Fitness holidays

Fitness holidays can be the perfect time to work on your fitness away from the stresses and distractions of everyday life. Whether you choose to sweat it out and push your body to the max or take it down a level with some relaxation and conditioning classes, you'll end the holiday feeling great.

On top of a wide choice of inclusive activities, we also run a fantastic fitness programme offering a varied mix of classes and one-to-one personal training. Whether you want to target flexibility, conditioning, cardio or power, there's a training session with your name on it.

A trained athlete or new to the game, our classes cater for all abilities on your fitness holiday. Inclusive fitness classes range from low-impact choices like yoga and Pilates-based classes and aqua-fit to energetic sessions to get your heart pumping like circuits, Zumba and Tabata. Or you can go it alone in our air-conditioned gyms, book a session with an expert personal trainer or join one of our friendly walking and running groups.

We also have a new focus on activity-specific exercise to help you achieve more from your chosen activities on holiday. So, whether you're all about cycling, tennis or water sports, joining a tailored conditioning class will help you target all the right muscles to improve your performance. 

Travelling solo is becoming an increasingly popular way to treat yourself to some serious me-time. Fitness holidays for singles allow you to zone in on your personal goals, go at your own pace and perhaps make some new friends as you cheer each other on. That said, for some, you can' beat couples or family fitness holidays and the shared experiences they bring. It's completely up to you.

Where to go on a fitness holiday

We offer fitness holidays in each of our beachclub destinations. For sunny, water-based fitness holidays, Greece ticks all the boxes. The warm, sparkling waters of the Ionian and Aegean Seas are the ideal playground if you love water sports. If you fancy including plenty of cycling in your fitness holiday, Italy and Sardinia are great choices. The smooth scenic roads are a rider’s dream, taking in rustic Italian villages, picturesque coastlines and spectacular mountains along the way. 

If you're looking a little closer to home for your fitness holidays, Spain could be ideal. It’s the location of our new Mar Menor Beachclub. Set on the shores of the largest saltwater lagoon in Europe, it’s a wonderful place to combine hitting your fitness goals with some well-deserved time out. Fitness holidays in Croatia are all about soaking up the stunning natural beauty as you work out. Whether you’re exploring the limestone peaks of Paklenica National Park up close with some hiking or rock climbing, or simply admiring them from the pebbly shores of our Alana Beachclub after a great session in the gym.
