Back in September I was invited on a fitness retreat in southern Spain with RESET RETREATS. With 6am starts, a private chef, endless indoor activities, sunrise yoga and motivational cardio if you’re looking to get your fitness in order Reset Retreats are the one for the job.
The retreat is based on the word luxury, and that it was. Our private villa was six stories high (with a lift!) an indoor heated pool, an outdoor infinity pool, multiple living rooms, a games room with pool, table tennis, air hockey and foosball, along with the topper - a cinema (I know right?!). The PTs were nothing but professional, driven and understanding. Not too pushy but equally as motivational.
Our day went a little something like this:
06:00 - wake up
06:30 - pre workout / coffee
07:00 - morning cardio in the Spanish hills
07:45 - green smoothie
08:00 - sunrise yoga on the balcony
09:00 - two course breakfast made by our private chef
10:00 - complimentary massage on day one / free time
11:00 - life coach meeting with one of the PTs on day one / free time
13:00 – lunchtime made by our private chef
14:00 - free time in my Calvin’s / sunbathe
16:00 - private PT sessions in the gym
17:00 - post workout smoothie / free time
19:30 – dinner made by our private chef
21:00 - evening yoga
22:00 - bed or chill
Spain is a hot country (if you didn’t know), so I really liked that Reset would schedule the workout sessions when the temperature was cooler, meaning you didn’t overheat. In the daytime then you could just relax and sunbathe or chill out in your comfies in one of the many living rooms reading a book. My comfies of choice? Calvin’s from Boxers & Briefs. There’s nothing better then getting out of that workout gear, grabbing a shower and putting on your cosiest pair of joggers whilst reading a book. Boxers & Briefs have a wide range of workout gear and sleepwear to choose from.
As the 3 days came to an end I left southern Spain feeling motivated, refreshed and ready with ideas and plans filling up the notes section on my phone. I was going to achieve my goals, be that in fitness or life, and I was going to do it now. Get those abs I’ve always wanted and reach my career goals. Did I? Well that’s a journey I’m still on... but I certainly can’t wait for the next one.
Reset Retreats are currently doing around four retreats a year, so if you’re looking for a luxurious getaway with a down to earth team of leaders, this is the place to be. Visit Reset Retreats Instagram for updates @resetretreats.
