5 Reasons why you should go on a 'Fitcation'

A fitness vacation or ‘fitcation”as they are commonly referred are the perfect place to reset, re-charge and re-commit to a healthier lifestyle.

What better way to kickstart the new year and your 2019 fitness goals than with the ultimate adventure packed, fitness vacation.

For most of us when we think of a vacation, we automatically think to hours of walking around foreign cities visiting famous attractions or lazing around on a beach indulging in too much local food, reading a book we bought at the airport and sipping on cocktails.

While this may still hold some appeal, a holiday which includes exploring, adventure, local delicacies as well as all the fun, fitness and sporting activities is how many nowadays are deciding to spend their vacation time.

So now that we have whet your appetite, here are our top 5 reasons why you should sign up for a fitness vacation in South Africa.


1: World Class Coaching

The opportunity to train with and learn from the very best in the business. Where else would you have the opportunity to spend multiple days travelling, training and learning from world-class coaches and athletes?

From CrossFit and rowing workshops to guided hikes up the 7th Natural Wonder of Nature followed by exploring the seas as you shark cage dive off the coast of Cape Point. Our team will ensure that you learn new skills and keep fit while experiencing new activities in some of the most scenic locations Cape Town has to offer.

Our professional and passionate team will be putting you through your paces, ensuring you are challenged both physically and mentally, but you’ll leave fitter, stronger and tougher than when you arrived, with the memories and photographs to prove it.   


2: Explore the best of Cape Town

Immerse yourself in the sights, sounds, flavours and cultures of one of the most sought-after locations in the world.

With so much to see and do, we’ve selected a diverse range of the very best attractions to ensure you experience the city as a true local.

From the mountain trails to the water sports Cape Town is a fitness enthusiasts dream, there’s an endless amount of activities for the adventurer that it would require more than one holiday to get through everything.

From exploring the Winelands, meeting some of the local wildlife, experiencing the local rich coffee culture and enjoying the bustling nightlife of the city, there’s one thing that is certain…you aren’t going to want to leave!   


3: Ditch the Comfort Zone

We become so accustomed to training in the exact same way, eating the same foods, going to the same places and then wondering why nothing ever seems to change.

Taking a fitness vacation can help propel you out of your comfort zone, change and challenge your training regime by trying new activities, improve your nutrition by learning from our experienced team of coaches, travel to places you’ve never experienced before.

As they say, change is as good as a holiday, and we can guarantee this holiday will help ignite all the right changes.


4: Make new lifelong friends

Connect with like-minded people from all over the world, it’s easy to travel alone as you know as soon as you touch down, you’ll arrive to a group of fellow fitness and travel enthusiasts ready to cheer you on and support you every step of the way.

We know that few things bond people together more than travelling and suffering through challenging workouts and some tough fitness regimes.

Our group sizes allow for personal attention with coaches but also encourage teamwork. The reward… new friendships from around the world.

5: Arrive home feeling fitter and healthier than when you left

Most of the time when we arrive back from holiday, we feel unhealthy, unfit and have managed to pack on a few extra kgs (and that’s not in the luggage).

A fitness vacation is the best way to avoid that. Arrive home feeling fitter, healthier and stronger than when you left.  You will also arrive home with new skills developed and knowledge learnt to help you grow and improve as an athlete.


What is the best thing about a fitness vacation?

Our Travel Fit Tours have been fully designed by an experienced team of instructors and coaches who accompany you from beginning to end.

All you need to do is show up and the rest is covered, no need to worry about accommodation and transport and what to eat and where to go. We take care of all the details while you enjoy all the activities.


We can’t think of a better way to kickstart your 2019!
