So, helping fulfil the nation’s newly-found sporting enthusiasm, five-star health & fitness company Illumanis – just launched this summer – will get you fit in a week with its brand-new ‘Train like an Olympian’ programme.
Not all of us have four years to train, so this week-long package offers a great alternative. And, if you’re inspired by our athletes and are now after abs like Ennis and the stamina of Mo, this training camp will not only help you achieve these goals, but will also give you an insight into how top-level athletes train and prepare for the biggest events of their lives.
Train like an Olympian, from £1,525 pp
Following a scientific approach to training, this week will get your body conditioned for high-performance training, and you’ll come away feeling fitter, stronger, faster and energised, with an easy-to-follow training programme for when you’re back home. Via short, intense workouts, you’ll increase your lean muscle mass and turn your body into the ideal physical platform to increase performance. Workout-wise, you’ll build on mobility and stability, and fine-tune the fundamentals of running, jumping and plyometric training – an advanced method which develops muscular power and improves overall speed. Each day begins with a movement, mobility and injury prevention session to ensure that you take appropriate steps to avoid injuries before they happen, while pool recovery sessions are also included. And, as it is a holiday – and you’re not actually an Olympian (yet) – you do get some time off to enjoy the five-star surroundings, visit a traditional hammam, enjoy Turkish cuisine and relax by the pool or on the hotel’s private beach.
- Departing 18 November, the week-long training camp costs from £1,525 pp (no single supplement) and includes flights (Gatwick), transfers, seven nights’ full-board at a five-star hotel, all training and fitness sessions, nutritional advice, supplements as per programme and use of the hotel’s facilities and spa.
Other new Illumanis fitness holidays include: Boot Camp, Muscle Mass, Ultimate Weight Loss, Tone Up, The Wedding Diet, Lean Muscle and Weight Loss.
