Holidays are a time for relaxation and replenishment but some of us also are renowned for loosening the top button of our trousers and putting on weight during our time off work. When we get back from these holidays we feel the need to attend the gym for a month just to work off those extra pounds gained whilst away. It doesnâ€™t have to be like this, there are a number of fitness holidays around the world which allow you to relax, revitalise and generally recharge your batteries whilst looking and feeling great.
Here Is a List of Some of the Top Destinations for a Fitness Holiday…
5. Columbia Beach Resort (Cyprus)
In Cyprus, the Columbia Beach resort overlooks the Mediterranean Sea from the bay of Pissouri. The area is peaceful with the resort one of only two hotels in the area setting it apart from other holiday destinations in Cyprus.
