It’s exciting to know that we are living in a time where the emphasis on health and wellness doesn’t just live within the 4 walls of the gym. Focusing on developing healthy habits for longevity is something more and more people are building into their everyday routines -- and even their vacations. With the rise of fitness and wellness retreats, it’s easier than ever to take your “wellness” on the road and explore new places all while giving yourself some TLC.
What is a Fitness/ Wellness Retreat?
Bringing the worlds of travel and health together, fitness/wellness retreats aim to teach healthy lifestyle practices and give one the chance to pause or even reset, while in special destination.
The main goal of any wellness retreat is simple: For you to leave feeling better than when you arrived.
Through exercise classes, nutrition information sessions, meditation, and other health-related activities, fitness retreats provide you with time to pause and focus intentionally on your mental and physical health. It’s a great way to jumpstart a new habit you are trying to build or simply relax and hone in on your well developed routine. No matter where you are on your health and wellness journey, or how you choose to stay healthy, there are lots of options for retreats, so you’ll be sure to find one that suits you and your budget.
What’s So Appealing About Health and Wellness Retreats?
With everyone buzzing about fitness retreats, I bet you’re wondering: what’s all the hype?
YOU TIME: When we get busy, one of the first things to be sacrificed is our health and wellness. You get caught up with work, family, and social events, and the next thing you know you’ve completely lost sight of your goals or have fallen out of your routine of what makes you feel good. Fitness retreats are a great way to reset intentions and set aside time just to focus on you.
INCREDIBLE DESTINATIONS: Imagine being able to focus fully on your health and wellness in a location that you’ve dreamed of traveling too. That’s the beauty of fitness retreats -- they give you the best of vacations and the best of self care together in one place. They also usually include other special events and experiences curated by an expert who knows the area.
BUILD COMMUNITY: In addition to the personal health benefits, fitness retreats provide a great opportunity to build community and network with other attendees. It’s a unique way to meet new people, engage with different trainers or dietitians, explore new places, learn about health and wellness trends, all while interacting with other like minded individuals. Fitness retreats are also a great way to mix up corporate travel and team building activities. Employees with good health and wellbeing will perform significantly better in the workplace.
How To Pick a Wellness Retreat
If you are a bit apprehensive about signing up for a fitness retreat, think back to your first organized fitness class. Everyone feels the half excited half anxious nerves of walking into a new studio or gym. But keep in mind fitness retreats are one hundred percent focused on you and your health and wellness needs. Don’t be intimidated by stories of strict diets and intense workout regimens, while these types of retreats do exist, they are not the majority. The best wellness retreats teach you to find balance and remind you to enjoy yourself and your surroundings while focusing on your own health and wellness.
The first step for choosing a retreat is to recognize what you want to get out it. Are you seeking meditation-based wellness? Do you want to try new exercises? Looking to learn how to stay fit on vacations of your own? Where do you want to go? Do you like big groups or small groups? No matter your desires, there is a fitness retreat for you. Do some research online to find a wellness retreat that looks appealing and prepare for a life changing trip.
