Workout Away on the Algarve is the perfect short fitness break for everyone. You will stay with us for
four nights and enjoy an action-packed time!
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. From yoga to HIIT training and boot camps, this programme has it all. 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 programme. 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 programme. If you would rather take a private taxi, we have fixed rates with our transport partner at the Cascade Wellness Resort.
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 35-minute work out improves cardiovascular fitness, speed, agility and challenges your fitness beyond your 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.
Sunrise Coastal Walk
A great way to kickstart the day with this less intense activity. This trail will take you to Ponta da Piedade Lighthouse and Dona Ana Beach. The scenery is spectacular, and we will have time to take it all in before breakfast back at the hotel.
Strength and Conditioning Bootcamp
Want to practice some weight lifting? Are kettlebells, barbells and dumbbells your best friends? This awesome boot camp style workout will challenge your strength whilst giving you a massive metabolic kick. We'll be flipping tires, practising pull-ups and everything in between!
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 Ponta da Piedade.
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 and Lifestyle Resort
It's simple. We select only the best accommodation when building our programmes. 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 programme. 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.
