Fun fitness holiday

I participated in the boot camp in November…What an experience!

The best thing about Boot Camp Marbella is that it’s not really a boot camp! The focus is not on pushing the participants to their absolute limit (i.e. the vomiting stage!). Each person’s fitness levels and goals were rapidly identified and the program was adjusted accordingly. Every single participant lost* kilos, gained muscle and had lots and lots of fun!! I have been doing 2-3 personal training sessions per week for the last three years but I’ve always wanted to go on a fitness holiday- I wondered what results I could achieve with a full week of diet and exercise. After weeks of research I decided upon Boot Camp Marbella. The sample timetable sounded fantastic and included lots of the activities I really enjoy. The price was competitive…and a week in the sun, in the middle of winter? Perfect!

Day 1 started with some excellent nutritional advice and we followed a very healthy (but not restrictive) eating plan throughout the week. Everybody’s taste was catered for and Jan was more than willing to provide any additional food we requested. The hotel was really clean, comfortable and with a sea view. Most importantly, it was about a 2 minute walk from the beach!

The indoor activities were diverse and included gym work, Pilates, yoga, spinning and step aerobics. The gym sessions with Dominic and the other trainers were challenging but loads of fun. I especially enjoyed the MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) rooftop session with Elvis and the circuit training session on the Marbella Promenade with Antonio. I was exposed to lots of new exercises that I am now using in own training at home. The outdoor activities included jogging, circuit training on the beach, cycling and yoga. I’m not a huge fan of jogging but I was delighted to discover it’s much more enjoyable on the beach! On the second day we cycled about 15 km (uphill!) to a little white village inland! Difficult, but made a lot easier by good company (and the occasional shove from Jan!) What an amazing sense of achievement at the top. And an exhilarating downward journey! Christian’s amazing massage was greatly appreciated at the end of that day!

The only problem was having to go home. I have no hesitation in recommending Boot Camp Marbella…some of my friends have already expressed interest or signed up and I’m already planning my 2013 trip to Marbella!

Many thanks Jan and Dominic!!!
