Love, Love, Love SoSpa fitness breaks. This one was a bespoke package one on one with Julie Hines for 14 days, yes!! 14 days of workouts and dancing pm because that is what Julie wants.
The breaks are all about YOU.
A typical day would be to wake and go and do a circuit (all outside as we want to absorb the wonderful atmosphere of Lindos). Followed by a swim cool down in the tranquil waters of St Pauls. The water in October is a wonderful 32 degrees temperature and this time we had extraordinary weather for Rhodes as it entered into the 30’s.
After workout and having worked up an appetite it was down to the local village cafe for a tasty greek salad and spinach and bacon omelette as we like to eat clean.
Hitting the beach around midday for a sunbathe and catch up on relaxation time.
Julie has bags of energy and about an hour in is twitching for the next workout so its a water based fitness maybe a plyo circuit or with water weights. The sea bed is completely flat on Lindos main beach and can walk out quite far until the water reaches the waist height. It creates excellent workouts to change the body shape. Its fun and cooling – a welcome break from lying down at this point.
We then go and see the guys on the beach bar for some chat and find out the local news , where the best entertainment is going to be for the evening and a drink of something refreshing and back for some R n R on the bed!
Late afternoon is a final workout for the day and we enjoyed going out for an hour and exploring the caves around the bay an simply feeling the freedom of being in the open sea. All these are Julie’s choices that she makes before we go out to Rhodes and there are many options of what exercise can be done. I enjoy Yoga at sunrise or sunset .
Evening is a local taverna, I never do fully inclusive hotel food because there is such a lovely variety of restaurants in Lindos and the welcome and hospitality from the owners make an evening perfect.
We are often invited to dine with the locals on fresh from the boat to the plate fish and really experience the true Greek way of living.
We returned,jeans hanging as always and complete, Mission accomplished – straight home to book for next years Fourth SoSpa holiday !
