We know that you love to get active, and this trip is sure not to disappoint. Your training will be varied, giving you the chance to get involved in a bit of everything. This retreat has it all, from yoga to HIIT training and boot camps. While there will be plenty of sweat, there's still time for some chill-out, relaxation and, of course, plenty of fun! Your fantastic Workout Away Group Fitness Leader will be on hand at any time, and you'll be sure to meet some new friends to sweat and share the experience with.
Lagos in Portugal is home to this retreat. The Algarve coastline certainly has an excellent pick of beaches to enjoy; from secluded coves to long sandy stretches, you're sure to find your perfect spot. Although Lagos attracts tourists from all corners of the globe, somehow, it's managed to maintain its quiet, exclusive and relaxed vibe. Situated just 50 minutes from Faro airport, it's easily accessible and the perfect hangout for your fitness break.
When you arrive at Faro Airport, there are many transport options available. Car hire in Faro is surprisingly affordable and is an excellent option if your Portuguese adventure continues further afield after your retreat. If you would rather take a private taxi, we have fixed rates with our transport partner at the Cascade Wellness Resort.
WORKOUTS & ACTIVITIES
Workout Away HIIT
Workout Away HIIT is a 30-minute High-Intensity Interval Training session designed to burn calories, reduce body fat and tone. HIIT is a science-proven method which improves cardiovascular fitness, speed and agility, and challenges performance beyond normal physical limits.
Workout Away Revive - Yoga Inspired Stretching Class
Revive is our signature yoga-inspired stretching class that anyone can do. You don't have to be a traditional yogi to fall in love with this restorative session.
You'll practice energising sun salutations to develop full-body strength and flexibility. You'll challenge balance and coordination with powerful standing stretches and move through seated twists to alleviate stress and restore energy levels.
Sunrise Coastal Walk
This morning walk is a great way to kickstart our day at a slightly slower pace. The trail will take us to Ponta da Piedade Lighthouse and down towards Dona Ana Beach. The scenery is spectacular, and we'll have plenty of time for pictures before heading back to the resort for breakfast.
Workout Away Rivals
Rivals is our brand new format for 2023. We've taken all the best bits from circuit, strength and functional training-based classes and created a team-based session where healthy competition drives sports and strength performance.
Stand Up Paddle Boarding
The best way to discover the beautiful coastline of Lagos and cool down in the Atlantic waters. Be sure to bring your waterproof camera on this one to capture the best views of the Algarve.
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.
Cascade Wellness Resort
It's simple. We select only the best accommodation when building our retreats. The perfect nights' sleep and luxurious space for you to unwind is essential. Cascade Wellness and Lifestyle Resort is a five-star luxury hotel used by sports teams for training and enjoyed by holidaymakers all year round. When we came across Cascade, we didn't want to leave. The setting, vibe and beauty of the place made us fall in love instantly.
Cascade is situated in the most beautiful spot. Its clifftop location, contemporary decor and unrivalled facilities make this resort one of the most luxurious on the Algarve. The lush gardens seem to go on forever, and we will use them each day to exercise in. Cascade has three swimming pools and a wellness spa offering holistic treatments and signature therapies.
We offer either twin or double rooms, depending on your preference. Many of our guests travel alone as Workout Away trips are a fantastic way to meet new, like-minded people. We will pair you up with someone to share with, or you’re able to select your own room when booking.
Breakfast each morning is included, and in addition, dinner is provided on selected nights of the retreat. There are many local places to dine so you can check out the local cuisine.
The spacious rooms at cascade are beautifully decorated, and no detail has been spared. All rooms have a balcony or terrace, and if you’re a morning coffee person, you will have your very own Nespresso® maker.
