Fitness boot camps are nothing new, with Provence and Tuscany being favorite destinations due to their consistent climate and renowned food. However word has reached us of a New Zealand born, but London based, personal trainer who plans to take a small group of like minded souls to the beautiful but largely unknown rural town of Uherske Hradiste in the Czech Republic.

Luke Daly’s day to day classes take place in the up market gyms of Britain’s capital such as the Chelsea Harbour Club or, if the weather is good, out on Wandsworth Common. He also offers an annual fitness break to Tuscany but now feels his Czech wife’s home town is the place for those seeking a unique experience.

Each day will include approximately 4 hours of varied fitness sessions including aerobic, running and resistance based activities interspersed with morning or evening yoga, pilates and tai chi. All sessions are included, yet attendance is optional. Also included, but optional, will be a guided visit to local wine producers and cycling or walking trips into the local countryside.

The break will run from 1st-6th May and costs £440 per person based on two sharing (or £490 for a single room) including all meals, classes and activities. Typical age profile would be 28-45 with an emphasis on great food, high quality accommodation, interesting wines, making new friends and having an enjoyable time.

Accommodation and all activities will be at the newly renovated 4* Buchlov Park Hotel, which now has a spa and small outdoor pool. The hotel is situated on top of a hill and has commanding views of the surrounding countryside. http://hotelbuchlov.cz/ Flights are not included but Luke will arrange a transfer to the hotel for a selected flight. Flights to the nearest airport of Brno are operated by Ryanair or Wizzair.

Alternatively there is a similar trip running to Tuscany on 6th-10th June for £560 pp based on two sharing, excluding flights but including all meals and based in a comfortable air conditioned country hotel.
