Workout Away was created in December 2018. We are based in London, UK, where all the behind the scenes work happens. The fun stuff, however, takes place in our beautiful fitness resorts both overseas and in the UK. We currently have planned programmes in the UK, Portugal, Greece and India.
Workout Away was created to make fitness on the move easier and more accessible. We aim to provide fantastic fitness experiences for our customers with a combined sense of fun and community. Fitness and wellbeing is a massive part of our lives, and if there's one thing we know how to do, it's to create the perfect fitness holiday!
As we are currently unable to bring tourists from Europe into India due to COVID-19, we'll be focussing on our local customers in India to provide them with word-class fitness holidays within their home country.
