Fitness/Wellness Holiday Suggestions?

Hi all

I'm looking to take a different type of holiday - instead of sightseeing or your typical city break, I'd like to go somewhere where I can focus on training (mostly cycling/running), fitness classes (box fit, pilates, etc), and eating healthy foods (raw, organic, etc).

I'm wondering if there are any hotels or resorts you can recommend which focus on this? Ideally somewhere in Europe or easily accessible from Zurich (with sunshine!) as I'm only looking to go for a week.

Thanks in advance!

If in Europe then very recommended are places in Malta, Lanzarote or Calp. Difficult and windy terrain for cycling, many resorts that specialize in healthy food. These are most popular places for triathletes. Good luck

I'd look to Portugal or the Canary Islands.

You may also want to look into Surf Retreats - despite the name, you don't have to surf if you don't want to, but they're usually connected to some general fitness retreat plus with healthy food and what have you. I mean something like this: http://www.karmasurfretreat.com/fit-health-retreat.html Is that the kind of thing you're looking for?

Actually been dying to to something like that too

Thanks for the location tips - any specific resorts you are aware of? I've seen Club La Santa in Lanzarote...but wondering if there are any other similar places to compare?

Re: Fitness/Wellness Holiday Suggestions?

For something different, try Yoga Cruising. It is what it sounds like - a yoga retreat on a sailboat. They have a few different options for location such as greece and turkey, and you spend a week relaxing, doing yoga, stopping for swimming and hiking. Highly recommended. I think the website is just yoga cruising.com
Otherwise, there are a few places in the lakes district in UK, or definitely Portugal or Spain.
Enjoy! Wellness holidays are the best!
