Wellness Travel: Top 3 Fitness Boot Camps
Everyone loves a good holiday vacation. However, there is one downside to this fun activity – its ability to disrupt your already healthy lifestyle. From indulging in glorious comfort food (with the excuse that you need to sample as many local delicacies as you can), to missing your gym workouts and drinking more mojitos than your liver can handle, going on a holiday can sometimes leave you feeling bloated and tired by the end of your trip.
Don’t worry, there’s a way around this. Try going on a wellness holiday where you can kickstart your fitness routine and de-stress at the same time. Head to travel destinations where you can do a variety of activities including stress-relieving yoga or hiking and trekking.
This type of fitness holiday would definitely suit you if your New Year’s resolution is to get in shape and stay fit this year.
