The SoSpa Fitness & Fun Day

August 31st, 2014 | Posted by Gail in SoSpa Fitness and Fun Holidays - (Comments Off on The SoSpa Fitness & Fun Day)

Hope you enjoyed August as much as I did? I loved having a SoSpa fun day with some of my clients.

I am always being asked what goes on in a SoSpa Fitness &Fun holiday and what type of exercise we do. I thought it would be a good idea to invite people along to my business premises and join in some fun.

This is how we rolled;

8.15-9.00 Gforce10  a circuit style class with a combination of  bodyweight, functional agility training and weights .

9.00 – 9.30 Drinks and chat . An opportunity to ask any fitness and nutrition questions to the team.

9.30 -10.15 Box Beat. A boxing style class coached by Elias

10-15 -10.45 Abs Rap Elias & Myself cutting you to the core

10.45 -11.00  Break for quick drink

11.00-11.45 YogaLover . A few Sun Sals and some easy headstands in my favourite style of Eastern exotic Yoga (only kidding about the headstands ;))

12.00 Lunch

13.30 pm Yeiasou Thanks for coming .

2014 June Fitness Holiday

2014 June Fitness Holiday

Fresh back from the SoSpa Fitness Holiday last week and have to say it was fabulous with great feedback and a really fun group who were up for anything !

With daily workouts from Yoga to abs/box fitness to Kayaking.

All improved their fitness with amazing results of between 30-50%improvements on their fit tests.

We had some fun evenings out with those who wanted cocktails and others went back after the delicious evening meal in the local restaurants to read their books and be ready early to workout.

All gave wonderful feedback about the break and said they felt tremendous and refreshed which was fab.

Our new coach Elias was a dream to work with and looking forward to him joining us on some SoSpa fitness breaks in the future.

Take a look at the gallery below and some of the reviews.

October 2012 Fitness Break- what we got up to

November 19th, 2012 | Posted by Gail in Uncategorized - (Comments Off on October 2012 Fitness Break- what we got up to)
Fitness and Fun Holiday

Yes on our fitness and fun breaks you can have a drink !!

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.

Kayaking in Lindos

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 !

Take Care of Your Liver

October 18th, 2012 | Posted by Gail in So Lean and Clean Fat Loss Plan - (Comments Off on Take Care of Your Liver)

Our world is loaded with hidden chemicals and poisons, but when it comes to fighting off your body’s toxic burden, you’ve got a dynamic machine— specifically, your liver.

Your liver is the like the “most valuable player” when it comes to keeping you healthy and slim. It controls the levels of various chemicals in your body, cleans poisons and toxins out of your system, and helps regulate the amount of fats in your body by producing bile, which digests the fats you eat.
Many people ignore this key organ by doing and eating things that cause it to work less efficiently, or even to break down. With a little daily maintenance, you can keep your liver running in tip-top shape — and help it help you to lose weight and get healthier.

Here’s what you need to do on a daily basis:
Twice a day, just before a meal, drink a cup of warm water with the juice of half a fresh lemon. This lemon water water is known to aid in bile formation, resulting in more efficient fat metabolism.
Eat protein every day, preferably at every meal. The liver needs the amino acids from protein to produce bile and make all the enzymes used in detoxification.
Eggs are a great source of protein, plus they have the added bene?t of being naturally rich in lecithin, a substance your liver needs to produce bile. Get essential fatty acids daily, especially omegas-3s, from walnuts, flaxseed and/or salmon, fish-oil supplements, or cod-liver oil.
Essential minerals such as copper, magnesium, and zinc play an im­portant role in liver detoxification, along with vitamin C, most of the B vitamins, folic acid, and flavonoids (found in richly colored vegetables such as sweet red peppers).
Your body is like a car. In order to keep it running, you need to put high-quality gas in the fuel tank, investigate when you hear something strange clanking under the hood, and do everything you can to keep it running in optimum condition.

You shouldn’t be treating your car better than you treat your body! Your liver processes every single toxin that passes through your body, it deserves some nurturing .

SoSpa what we have been up to.

November 4th, 2011 | Posted by Gail in PT | SoSpa Fitness and Fun Holidays - (Comments Off on SoSpa what we have been up to.)

 

Hi Guys,
It has been an eventful year up to now! We are into our second year of the Bespoke fitness holidays and it now seems SoSpa is ‘So right’!

With many holidays and events occurring in 2011 it has been great fun to share with my clients wonderful fitness training in the most beautiful places.

People are now understanding my concept of fun fitness and realise that the breaks I offer are definitely not for those who wish to be yelled at & starved for a week! So please if you want a lettuce leaf,be beaten with a stick, yelled at and called a few obscenities do NOT call SoSpa!

Clients can and often do continue to have a drink of wine, dance at nightclubs (if they wish) and stay up late. Knowing that I and my team are going to get you moving the next day as there is a trade off (of course) you must work off any extra calories and you must eat only the healthiest’tastiest unprocessed foods.

SoSpa private holidays are bespoke and we work in the most amazing places tailor making the break to you.

From Uk Stately homes to various beaches and my favourite Greek location of Lindos it just takes fitness on to another plane. Once a client has performed a series of exercises in a fun place and fab setting then each time you workout on home ground an association of the location training gives you with a fab feeling flooded with good memories.

SoSpa Corporate Has been working well offering some  fab fitness bootcamps all over the country and we have been able to offer our therapies too from our SoSpa therapists Clare and Lynny.

We have many Greek bookings for Lindos already next year and enquiries daily. I will shortly be releasing some dates for group bookings for 2012 taking 6 – 16 people. Please call or mail me with any enquiries for either SoSpa holidays or Corporate Fitness. on 07818 492578 gail@sospagreece.com

Below are just a few pics of the awesome locations in 2011
