Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

 Last Update - 21/07/2020

 

From the 6th August, we're planning to re-start our 2020 fitness holiday schedule with two trips to the South Coast of the UK. We'll also be returning to our beloved Lagos on the Algarve in Portugal and Mykonos in Greece.

As the health and protection of our customers and people remain top of our priority list, things will be a little different. We'll be running our trips with limited capacity to comply with public health regulations and government guidelines, and we'll have social distancing measures in place. Even with these changes, one thing is for sure. Our fitness holidays will be as fantastic as ever with awesome workouts, delicious food and stunning accommodation.

We continue to guarantee 100% refunds if your trip is affected as a result of COVID-19*

 

We are closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation across each of our destinations. We will make decisions as to our ability to operate each trip at least four weeks before and contact customers individually.

*If your trip is cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, you will be offered free transfer options to any other available 2020 dates including changes of destinations. We hope that you'll rearrange your trip with us but if that's not possible, we will of course offer you a full refund.
