When you decide your next vacation and you’re thinking of new places to try out or new activities to discover, consider this. Maybe it would be wise to finally decide upon visiting a fitness resort together with your family. And if you are not completely familiar with the concept and if it doesn’t sound that appealing to you, let us explain exactly what a fitness resort is.

More and more people are choosing to spend their holidays at fitness resorts around the globe, because they combine 2 very important things. Relaxation time with your family and loved ones, and getting into better physical shape and general health. Fitness resorts are luxurious establishments where you can perform all sorts of activities, play sports, have your every need, diet and exercise routine catered to by trained professionals.

Here are some of the top reasons why you should choose our fitness resort for your next holiday:

1. Unwind Completely

If you’ve spent holidays at resorts before, you may have returned from your time off feeling even more tired and worn out that before you got there. The goal of a top class fitness resort is to unwind you, relax you and make you feel like a better healthier person all around. We tend to you in a way that doesn’t add extra stress or makes you more tired than when you got here. When you leave our resort, you’ll feel happier, healthier and with your batteries completely charged.

2. Healthy Meals

Regular resorts will have all you can eat buffets with a lot of unhealthy fast food, high sugar deserts and all the alcoholic beverages you can imagine. A fitness resort will instead offer you delicious healthy meals that will keep you well fed, highly energized and healthy at the same time. Our menus are created by top chefs and will taste every bit as delicious as you can imagine while helping getting you back into shape.

3. Make Friends

At fitness resorts you will be together with other people who share your own goals and ideals. Everyone there will be working together to become better versions of themselves, so it’s incredibly easy to find new friends. Workout together, play sports together, everyone will have a wonderful time!

4. High Self Esteem

When you leave a regular resort, your weight will usually be a little bit higher, and you energy a bit lower. You might feel self conscious around your friends or coworkers seeing as you’ve gained a few pounds since last seeing them. You won’t ever have this problem at a fitness resort. In turn, you’ll look and feel greater than before, and people around you will notice, giving you very high self esteem in the process.

5. Fun Activities

We aim to make your stay extremely enjoyable, so there are a multitude of activities you can partake in while staying at our resort. You can try things like horseback riding, swimming, enjoying a game of pool in our game room, playing soccer, tennis, basketball and more. There are tons of cool things to do, we guarantee you won’t have time to get bored and will enjoy every second of it.

These are just 5 great reasons to pick a fitness resort over a regular one. You’ll find a ton more when you actually come visit us. So what are you waiting for?

If you want to get into shape, there is no achieving it without proper exercise. For different reasons, people usually want to stay away from exercise as much as possible, or they simply don’t have the time for it. However, regular exercise doesn’t have to be very tedious or too time consuming if done right. You just need to follow some simple exercises and perform them regularly. The results will come sooner than you think.

In this post we want to show you several simple exercises that will start boosting your metabolism and turn you body into fat burning machine. You don’t need complicated equipment for this and you’ll be able to perform them from the comfort of your home, or by simply going outside. A gym membership isn’t necessarily needed contrary to what you may think. Going to the gym is great, but if you don’t have the time for it, there are ways to still get your required exercise in.

Walking

You may or may not know this, but walking is a great form of exercise. A 30 minute daily walk around your neighborhood or in a park will actually get you going in the right direction. You don’t even have to jog at first, basic walking will do the trick.

House Work

We all feel we could do a little more housework but likely don’t find the time for it. Instead of going to the gym, you could do some work around the house, whether it’s washing dishes, vacuuming or mopping the floor. All of these activities burn calories and you can perform them without having to leave your home. That’s what we call hitting 2 birds with one stone.

Weights

Some weight lifting is always recommended as a quality fitness exercise. Once again, you don’t have to go to the gym for this, you can easily find some basic weights at the store and work out with them 30 minutes per day.

Weightless Training

Of course, you can also do a ton of exercise at home without even touching weights. Push-ups, pull-ups, squats, high knees, jumping jacks, lunges work great. The key is to not overwork yourself as this will lead to a tired body and a tired mind. You don’t need to beat any records, just perform regular exercises a few minutes every day and transform it into a regular routine.

Split Exercises Throughout The Day

The last important piece of advice here is this. If you can’t put one hour aside every day for a little cardio and some of the fitness exercises we mention here, don’t sweat it, you can still perform all of them spread out during the day. Do a brisk walk in the morning to work, perform some aerobics before lunch, maybe some push-ups and pull-ups in the evening. As long as you exercise for one hour, it doesn’t matter if it’s one hour continuously or spread throughout the day in 10-20 minute smaller sessions.

This simple fitness program might not seem ground breaking, but it works. Follow it and the results will start showing, and before you know it, you’ll be addicted to exercising regularly and having a healthier more in shape figure.

 

The basics of losing weight are easy enough to understand and are usually known by everyone. Eat healthy foods and burn more calories than you accumulate, and you’ll start losing weight. This might be easier said than done however. A lot of people trying to lose weight but don’t manage to stick to a diet plan. Let’s take a look at some of the basics of a proven diet plan that works.

Set An Initial Goal

Having a goal will instantly set you apart from people who start losing weight without a proper plan in place. Let’s say you want to lose 20 pounds, take a small notebook at use it as your personal weight loss checklist. Write your initial weight loss goal on it, so now you now exactly what to aim for. Then, at the end of each week of implementing your new diet, weigh yourself and update how many pounds you have shed on your notebook. Constantly keep track of how many more pounds you need to reach your target.

Write Down Healthy Foods You Enjoy

A common misconception of dieting is you need to starve yourself to lose weight. This couldn’t be further from the truth. In reality, you have to replace unhealthy foods with healthy nutritious meals that are high in protein and vitamins, and not as high in fats and carbohydrates. On your weight loss notebook, make a list of foods you like from the following list. White meat, red meat, fish, vegetables, nuts, cottage cheese, greek yogurt, low fat milk, seafood and other high protein foods you can find. Then research into recipes with these ingredients to guarantee you eat delicious and also highly nutritious meals. Avoid deep frying your food, and instead go for grill/roasted/boiled/stir food + salads and smoothies. Write everything down in your notebook to stay organized and easily find your recipes.

More Meals, Smaller Portions

Instead of going for the classic 3 meals per day, breakfast, lunch and dinner, introduce 3 extra meals in between them. You won’t actually be eating more than before, but you’ll be eating smaller meals more regularly. This will enable your body to burn calories easier, and will in turn accelerate weight loss and help maintain your body’s figure once you’ve reached your goal.

Regular Cardio Sessions

If your plan is to lose weight, good nutrition isn’t enough on its own, you have to combine it with regular cardio session. Don’t despair however, we aren’t talking about long sessions on a tedious treadmill. All that it’s needed are 20 minutes per day of cardio, and you can accomplish this by jogging, going on a brisk walk, taking a bike ride and even doing choirs around the house.

With each passing week, make note of your progress in your notebook and you’ll soon start seeing noticeable weight loss results. And because you are tracking your progress it will give you extra motivation to stay on your plan until you reach your goal, and very likely even after. The end result will be great: you’ll slim down, eat better, feel better and will want to keep respecting this simple but powerful plan – it will become your natural way of life. And don’t think you can’t have cheat days once in a while. Even up to 2 days per month is more than ok. The key is to keep eating healthy meals and do cardio regularly.
