Fitness & Yoga holidays

Fitness and yoga holidays are the ideal way to kick start a new fitness regime, throw yourself in at the deep-end or if you already enjoy a fitness and yoga programme, to really make some progress.

We all deserve a break from the everyday and a fitness or yoga holiday will leave you feeling refreshed, relaxed and ready to face the world.  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.

Our instructors hold professional qualifications and are there to ensure you enjoy the workout or help yo to achieve more than you thought possible. Whether you join us in Croatia, Italy, Greece, Spain or Sardinia, there are free daily yoga and fitness classes at all of our beachclubs.

Our outdoor fitness spaces mean you can enjoy fitness and yoga in the great outdoors, with the sea, beach and mountains as a backdrop rather than the four walls of a studio. What's more, our nutritional and tasty club board meals will keep your body balanced and ready for a day of activity, relaxation or exploring.

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.

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 and yoga holiday

With all of our Neilson Beachclubs offering fitness and yoga as an inclusive activity, you’re spoilt for choice in terms of location. How does a fitness and yoga holiday in Sardinia sound? The Italian island is famed for its golden sandy beaches and fusion cuisine. Yoga and fitness holidays in Italy give you plenty of chance to explore and fit in some cultural highlights between activities. Plus, the Mediterranean cuisine means you can stay healthy during your holiday - though we won’t tell if you enjoy a pizza or two!

With our range of beachclubs in Greece, you can really tailor your fitness and yoga break to the entire family. Island life or the mainland? Whichever you choose, our qualified instructors will be there to push you or offer gentle encouragement. For a break that’s slightly off the beaten track, Croatia is ideal if other family members are looking for a holiday with a difference.
