Where better to get in shape for the beach, than on a beautiful California shore. We found the best fitness and health retreat for you not only get an incredible holiday, but you return a whole new you.
For the aspiring Californian body
Laguna Health Retreat, California www.lagunahealthretreat.com/
With sun a shining, beaches a plenty, it’s no coincidence that the Californians are, in general, long, lean and golden (yes, Jennifer Aniston is the lady in our minds). Well, we can’t magic you a la Aniston, but Laguna Health Retreat certainly has a trick or two up their sleeve. With not just exercise on the agenda, but yoga, pilates, massage, colon hydrotherapy as well as classes on posture, acupuncture and meditation, this retreat is about educating you about your body and adapting your lifestyle to get that youthful Hollywood appearance we all so desire. Panic not, this is not purely about learning, you can expect to leave sans some serious pounds and with new found muscle tone, not to mention the energy of a 5 year old. Well, at least someone 5 years younger than the you on arrival.
What to expect: Laguna is serious about food. Good, organic, fresh delicious food. So, don’t expect to go hungry. In-house fitness experts will develop a package that is right for you and your goals. Be in hours of yoga on the beach, hiking in the local beach coves, foothills and bluffs, beach bound exercise to merely watching the dolphins jumping in the ocean. However, don’t expect to get away with less than two to four hours of exercise a day.
Where you stay: There are eight luxurious villa’s all located on the beach, that give you not only a breathtaking view of Laguna Beach, but every American mod con you can dream of.
