What level of fitness do I need to be at?

We always accommodate a variety of fitness levels, and there will be lots of down time for you to relax and recover from the workouts. We programme each workout to allow you to work to your own abilities and pace, and our coaches are always on hand to provide modifications to exercises if required. It’s your choice as to whether you participate in each workout, but we’d always encourage you to get involved in as much as possible, challenge yourself for the week, and see what you’re capable of! Remember, it is a fitness Escape after all.

I'm travelling solo. Can I still come?

Hell yes! Travelling alone is surely the best way to meet new people?!Roughly 80% of our guests come solo so we promise you’ll feel part of our Escape family in no time, and you’ll leave with friends for life.

Will I get any ‘free' time?

Absolutely! We will always schedule down time in our daily itinerary, for you to chill by the pool, head to the beach or nap in the sunshine. Remember it’s your trip, and you’re very welcome to head off for a day exploring by yourself. If you’d like any recommendations or suggestions, just ask one of the team!

Are flights and transfers included in the price?

No. All prices are exclusive of flights and transfers. It is your responsibility to book your own flights & transfers to/from the Escape.

What is the food like?

AH-mazing! We expect you to be training hard in the workouts, so we’ll make sure you have plenty of food to refuel! We’re all about a wholesome, balanced approach to food so expect tables full of fresh, nutritious meals that we’ll enjoy together! Our Chefs like to use fresh, local produce, and where possible, give you a taste of the local cuisine. We’re very happy to cater for vegetarians and vegans + we’ll aim to cater for any specific dietary requirements. Make sure we’re clued up before your trip!
