Have you ever thought about joining us on a bootcamp holiday at motivate bootcamp?

 

It’s perfect for weight loss, improving fitness, and for the perfect kick-start in life – and Portugal is a beautiful country to visit too

Our 7 day bootcamp is based at our Luxurious retreat in Albufeira in the Algarve, and is a bootcamp holiday combined with a beach holiday. Not only do you take part in lots of fitness sessions and healthy workshops, you also have afternoons to relax around the pool or head into town – and in the evening why not join us for a BBQ or venture out into the old town with us for an evening meal overlooking the beach

Depending on which bootcamp you prefer we have a few venues we use. For the self-catering option we hire out a full apartment complex, complete with swimming pool and tennis court. We tend to have about 20 ladies on this retreat but don’t worry about space, we have the entire venue to ourselves, including 13 apartments. If you are looking at All Inclusive, or our Bed and Breakfast option and prefer a smaller group then our Luxurious villa is perfect for this. Catering up to 12 people it’s perfect for an escape, combine that with a stunning swimming pool it makes for a great personalised bootcamp experience

Over the duration of your bootcamp you will have your fitness trainers at hand 24/7. Not only we do we take trainers with us from the UK, we also have a team over in Albufeira who join us for sessions too. On the All-inclusive or Juice Detox Retreat we also take a chef to prepare the delicious meals or shakes for you

Our prices start from just £499 pp for a week self-catering or £799 for All inclusive. This is a lot cheaper than our rivals including Northern Bootcamp, No1 Bootcamp, and Prestige Bootcamp. We offer exceptional value for the money as we run the bootcamps because we love doing them and we love our clients, not for just the money. You may be paying less but you are still getting everything the other bootcamp companies offer, plus more! We have also added an additional trip to Vilamoura and bodyboarding/surfing in our packages

If this sounds like something you would enjoy then you can BOOK NOW for just £99 deposit! Our spaces do go quickly so book as soon as you can. The balance is then due 6 weeks before your retreat, we can also offer a payment plan if you would like to split up the payments

How to be healthy and stay fit over Christmas

Christmas is the time of the year when everybody struggles to be healthy and continue their fitness journey, and 11 months of hard work can be wiped out in a few weeks! Don’t let this happen to you!

Follow the below tips to keep your body ticking over throughout the Christmas period, ready for the New Year

  • Don’t sit down everyday – try and do something active or the weight is soon going to start adding up – people can gain over a stone over the Christmas period, and it’s a lot harder to lose than it was to gain
  • Don’t drink too much – remember alcohol is empty calories. If you do drink, then remember to swap to the low calorie options if possible such as gin and slim line tonic. Mulled wine is nice but is pretty high in calories – click here
  • Don’t give up the gym – it’s the time of the year when you need to work out the most! Try to train regularly – if you struggle to make classes or gym then do 15 minute workouts a day at home, use hit/circuit sessions or YouTube videos to give you a few workout ideas
  • Don’t stress – Christmas is about having fun and enjoyment
  • Drink lots of water on a night out to keep you rehydrated and hopefully avoid the hangover in the morning. If you do have a hangover then get up and get out for some fresh air, the alcohol isn’t going to burn off and leave your system if you are in bed all day. Click here for more info
  • Get a workout buddy if you are struggling for motivation or make a pact with your class buddies that you will still keep going throughout Christmas. Many local fitness trainers and gyms also run Christmas bootcamps and challenges – sign up to one of these
  • Book an event for early 2018 to give you a goal to maintain – perfect for motivation and to keep you working out over the Christmas period. 5k runs are perfect for this – get others involved too. Even better – book a bootcamp weekend!
  • If you have an event which you know involves food and alcohol, plan a workout for that day and make it a pretty tough one – including HIT and weights! Not only will this make you feel great, but it will also increase your metabolism so you will burn the food/drink off more efficiently, and you won’t feel guilty because you have pre burned those additional calories – then enjoy your night
  • If you work in an office environment – avoid continuous snacking on Christmas junk food such as chocolates, cakes and biscuits. Instead limit yourself, or take in healthier options. The result – you won’t feel lethargic and tired all day at work, plus you won’t gain weight!
  • Get the family involved in fitness – active games such as dance, sports etc on the Xbox are a perfect way to keep the family entertained and active
  • Christmas Dinner – this is when everybody over indulges. Enjoy it but a few tips include don’t go back for seconds, eat at the dinner table so your body recognises you are eating (no tv), and eat slowly – it’s not a rush
