The Ability to Reach Your Goals

On arrival, guests should undertake a fitness test and body composition analysis from which individualised programs are designed to meet their objectives. Class timetables should suit all preferences and fitness levels. Look for a resort where the restaurant’s meticulous menu planning provides a range of healthy, nutritious food, catering to all dietary requirements. Attention to detail such as menu items having calories displayed, make it easy to order within daily calorie guidelines. To see benefits it is advised to stay a minimum of seven days. Some retreats offer shorter stays however it is hard to achieve your goals if you’ve barely had time to unpack.

Overall Experience

Choose a resort with a relaxed but motivating atmosphere. It is always an encouraging sign if a retreat has many return guests, not because the results aren’t maintained but because they want to continue their transformation and know this is the best place to do so. Browse through a resort’s Instagram profile or photos that have been tagged by guests to get a thorough perspective of what you can expect with your stay.

Caring Staff

While following an intense workout program, potentially in a foreign country, it can sometimes feel a bit overwhelming. This is where empathetic trainers can be worth their weight in gold. Trainers have the power to instill motivation into guests so they make the choice themselves to turn up to workouts and make healthy food choices without thinking twice. The same results aren’t achieved by drill sergeants barking orders. The staff’s priority should be to help you achieve your goals with encouragement, support and patience.

Expertise in wellness and delivery of proven results

Personal trainers should hold a minimum of Level 3 REPS and motivate guests to achieve results beyond what they thought possible. These are the people who are going to guide you towards your goals, it’s imperative that they are the best possible people for the job. Does the resort have any transformation stories or testimonials from previous guests? It is advisable to do your research, browse through TripAdvisor and Facebook reviews, social media comments and resort webpages.

In-House Programs

Look for a one stop wellness resort for all your health and fitness goals. On-site restaurants and training facilities mean the only time you’ll need to leave is to catch the shuttle bus to the local attractions for some sightseeing.
By choosing the right health resort you’re setting yourself up for the best possible outcome of achieving your wellness goals. With the best resort, the life changing benefits of your stay will last a lot longer than any sun tan you’ll get.
