Win a Place on a Spanish Health and Fitness Holiday

Fancy getting fit, losing weight and catching a tan all in the gorgeous, unspoiled Spanish countryside? We’ve teamed up with The Body Retreat to give away one of their seven-night health and fitness holidays in a Spanish retreat to one lucky reader, worth £1,550!

Although you may be thinking that the words health and holiday shouldn’t be in the same sentence (let’s be honest, we are all guilty of sometimes overindulging when we’re away), you’ll return from The Body Retreat feeling both lighter and fitter. Whether you’re looking to lose weight, tone up or simply put fun back into your fitness regime, The Body Retreat is here to help. With an intelligent focus on behaviour, nutrition and exercise, as well as some rest and relaxation thrown into the mix, the average retreater loses eight pounds by the end of the week.

Designed for those who want to give their fitness a boost while soaking up the sun, you can expect a varied mix of exercise sessions that target your functional fitness, from body weight circuits, HIIT and Tabata workouts to hill walks through the local villages and the gorgeous countryside. The retreat will help you to achieve your goals, from improving your performance to getting back into shape after an illness or injury, using neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) techniques and hypnotherapy. You’ll learn how to fuel yourself for weight loss and fitness at the interactive nutritional workshop.

Not only that, but you’ll also enjoy beautifully cooked, Spanish-style, seasonal home-made food created using produce from local farms, as well as a complimentary massage, and after all that, you can relax Mediterranean style by the private pool, in the hot tub or in a shady spot.

Exercise classes take place outside in the courtyard or on the undercover outdoor platform. You can even experience the local market or olive oil tasting during your visit. Located in a luxurious, private farmhouse in the heart of the Andalucian countryside with uninterrupted panoramic views, this is a place where you can really unwind.
