The Dates - Four Nights
10th June 2021
Workout Away in Cornwall is the perfect four-night escape to one of the most beautiful corners of the UK. You'll enjoy a mixed exercise programme, from HIIT to boot camps and yoga. Cornwall is famous for surfing, and on this trip you'll learn the basics on the stunning Cornish coast.
On this trip you'll push further towards your fitness goals. If a sunrise circuits class on the beach sounds up your street, you'll love this escape. Our HIIT and core training sessions are high intensity, sweaty and challenging. We'll wind it down with our yoga-inspired classes to draw a balance in our training schedule. On two days of this programme we'll head to surf and stand-up paddle boarding school to learn the basics or improve your skills.
With you for the whole programme is our Workout Away group fitness leader, who will be on hand at any time should you need anything at all. We hope you're excited to meet some new friends too! You'll join the group on day one and enjoy this programme as a team.
Home for this programme is the stunning St Michaels Resort in Falmouth. This beachside resort is set in sub-tropical gardens and boasts an impressive health and wellness offering. On the last afternoon of your trip you'll experience the hydrothermal spa with 21 massage stations, a Finnish sauna, an outdoor heated plunge pool, and Cornish salt steam room.
Workouts and Activities
HIIT Athletic & Power
HIIT is a 35-minute high-intensity interval training session designed to burn calories, reduce body fat, and tone. This science-proven workout improves cardiovascular fitness, speed, agility and challenges your fitness beyond normal physical limits.
Revive - Yoga Inspired Workout
Set to cool beats, this 40-minute class improves your full body strength as well as flexibility, balance and coordination. The fast flowing movements and use of resistance bands provide us with a great conditioning workout that also gets your heart rate up. Although moderate intensity, you will certainly feel the burn in this workout.
Made up of several stations, this high-intensity workout is a combination of exercises targeting your upper and lower body. You’ll improve your speed, stamina and strength with a fierce cardio kick.
We'll meet our surf instructors at Maenporth beach, close to the hotel. Before we head out onto the water, we'll cover some safety and technique basics. Once you're ready, we'll take on some waves and practice our skills.
Stand-up Paddle Boarding
This session starts with a dry run on the beach, giving us the chance to learn some basic strokes. We'll then head out onto the water with our instructor and enjoy an hour and a half exploring the area around Gyllyngvase beach.
Hydrothermal Spa Experience
Once you arrive at the Hydrothermal Spa you will not want to leave. Immerse yourself in the Cornish salt or rainforest steam room, the red cedar hot tub, or the Finnish herbal sauna. The 21 station hydrotherapy pool is the ideal place to ease away any aches or tension from your workouts.
So this is what you can expect from your trip. As you can see, there’s plenty to keep you busy, active and feeling great! All activities are optional and included. You may want to get involved in everything, but we understand that everyone needs a bit of me-time too.
The St Michaels Resort
The St Michaels Resort is located in Falmouth, Cornwall. The hotel is within walking distance to Falmouth Harbour and the beach. From London, you can reach the hotel by train in around five hours with one change in Truro. You're also able to fly to Newquay from London, Manchester, Teesside, and Leeds Bradford, and then take a 45-minute taxi to Falmouth from the airport.
Each bedroom is beautifully decorated with inspiration taken from the Cornish coast. Your room is the perfect space to relax and unwind after your day of activities and events. You'll find amenities by Elemis, luxury bath towels, and tea and coffee facilities.
On the doorstep you'll find the blue flag Gyllyngvase beach, where you can relax or start your coastal trail. If you're up for a longer walk, you can visit Maenporth and Swanpool beaches both within walking distance.
You're in for an action-packed few days with what we have planned, but if you wanted a little me-time in the gym, your stay also includes complimentary access to the impressive on-site gym with state of the art cardio, resistance and weight training equipment.
