Supplying participants with a structured fitness programs and teams of personal trainers, chefs and skilled instructors, weight loss spas are pleasant combinations of healthy living and vacation time. The idea? A great experience will encourage and educate anyone looking to lose a few pounds, maintain motivation or simply have fun while boosting their activity levels.
A good weight loss spa is designed to have a lasting impact on you and your lifestyle by relying on science and medical knowledge to focus on health as your No. 1 priority. Ignore programs that promise quick weight loss or are based on fad diets; well-run spas understand the importance of setting an example of good nutrition by serving healthy low calorie, low fat food (providing, of course, the calorie count at every meal).
Spas range from the luxurious to the strenuous; how you approach the weight loss is up to you. Some spas offer services geared towards particular health problems such as injured muscles or high blood pressure. Retreating to a weight loss spa is an all-inclusive affair as one price covers your meals, lodging, classes, activities and spa treatments. Costs range from £100 per day to £5,000 for a week (one week stays are most popular).
With thousands of spas located all over the world, you can choose a retreat anywhere from the centre of London town to the wooded mountains of North America. For a more exotic spa break, why not add a stamp to your passport with a week in Thailand or Mexico? With activities ranging from the mildest Tai Chi and yoga to intense hiking, swimming and rock climbing, any weight loss spa can be customised to your fitness preference.
