Olympic inspired holidays

One third of the British population are planning to escape the Olympic frenzy and go on holiday

Health & Fitness Travel, experts in tailor-made active and wellness holidays worldwide, has found that the Olympics is inspiring more Brits to be healthier and fitter, so much so that the Olympic spirit is encouraging us to holiday like Olympians. While people are fired up to be part of something sporty, they recommend taking a sporting holiday:

Cycling holidays
If you fancy yourself as the next Chris Hoy, participate in a cycling holiday and embrace the outdoors whilst exercising. Stay at Reads resort and explore the majestic Spanish island of Mallorca whilst biking through the challenging Tramuntana mountains. Otherwise indulge in Turkish hospitality when road cycling along the trails of the Turquoise Coast. Furthermore, enjoy the prospect of mountain biking through pine forests and rough terrain in Nepal combined with an elephant-back safari.

Active and fitness holidays
Looking to be the next Usain Bolt? Escape on a fitness holiday that can combine a variety of experiences to strengthen your muscles, tone your body or increase your cardio levels. Increase your fitness at Absolute Sanctuary in Thailand on the white beaches of Koh Samui whilst surrounded by breath-taking sea views. Alternatively visit Arizona and stay at Canyon Ranch Tuscon and enjoy over 40 complimentary fitness classes daily including Zumba, spinning and yoga. Set in the spectacular desert and surrounded by mountains, sporting activities on offer include basketball, hiking and mountain biking.

Acrobatic holidays
Aim to be as flexible and mentally strong as Louis Smith when engaging in practices that build strength and stability such as yoga and Pilates. On the captivating coast of Koh Samui you can improve your physical posture through Asana yoga or control breathing whilst meditating in Pranayama at Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary and Holistic Spa. In India, be enchanted in the serene Himalayan mountains by practicing yoga and Ayurveda rituals at Ananda. In St Lucia, stay at The BodyHoliday and enjoy a programme of beach boxing, yoga, Pilates and Olympic style sports with healthy gourmet cuisine.

Develop your tactical, physical and mental football skills in the unspoiled tropical regions of the Caribbean at Buccament Bay. Find luxury in St. Lucia whilst learning Archery and Fencing bordered by lush rainforests and natural waterfalls.
