At Workout Away, our guests come to experience their perfect break with great fitness programmes built-in. We know what our customers want, and we're on the lookout for inspirational group fitness leaders.
Our programmes vary in length from a short weekend to trips of 7 days away from home. Activities range from yoga to cycling and boot camps. Our holidays follow specific timetabled activities with classes delivered by the group fitness leader or local external instructors.
