The boot camp vacation that will blow your mind

 

At this time of year, the sudden urge to get into shape is universal. If you’re feeling a little soft around the edges thanks to months of cold-weather indulgence, we can’t think of a better time for a little boot camp getaway.

The Lakes by Yoo, a glorious private estate nestled in the heart of the idyllic Cotswold countryside in England, has teamed up with Matt Roberts, the UK’s leading health and fitness expert to launch a series of four-day fitness retreats. We know the words ‘fitness’ and ‘retreat’ sounds pretty weird together but trust us, all the hardcore exercise pays off when you’re relaxing in the on-site Russian Larch houses staring through the glass walls at the six tranquil clear-water lakes that surround the estate.

Regular programs on offer will focus on sports performance, fitness conditioning and fat loss. From your arrival on Sunday evening, where you’ll be assessed on your fitness and ability levels to create a personalized schedule, to your departure on Wednesday afternoon, your well-being is in the very capable hands of Matt Roberts. When you’re not swimming, mountain biking or taking part in a expert workshop, you can enjoy a delicious and nutritionally-balance meal plan devised by a leading local chef, wander around the beautiful grounds or lose hours to a soak you bathtub overlooking the lakes. Take us there now right?
