HEALTH AND FITNESS RETREATS AT VERDURA SPA

At Verdura Spa we have an innovative approach to fitness, with the most cutting-edge gadgets and equipment, and professional trainers to support its guests all the way. Throughout the year Verdura Spa is cooperating with interesting and well-known characters from the wellness and fitness world: Harry Jameson, Terrence the Teacher and Julie Montagu.

JAMESON RETREATS – FITNESS RETREAT
The Jameson Retreats have been created by leading trainer Harry Jameson in collaboration with Viavi of Harley Street, a renowned centre of international medical excellence.

The retreats will take place on different weeks throughout the year and offer a completely personalised programme combining training, treatments and nutrition, along with a 7 day retreat at Verdura Resort.

An initial full health assessment will be carried out by Viavi, followed by a seven night stay at Verdura Resort, where the programme will encourage and support healthy living and regular, effective training.

Pre-retreat, guests will be assessed at Viavi's clinic in London's Harley Street. Each of the biometric tests is specifically designed to equip the Jameson team of trainers and nutritionists, as well as our Verdura team of therapists, sports pros and chefs, with the tools and knowledge required to construct an individual programmes.

At Verdura, daily personal training with Harry Jameson and his expert trainers will be tailored specifically to address personal challenges and requests. The fitness sessions will be complemented by additional small group sessions, group yoga practice, and morning fasted cardio workouts. There is also the option to have two one-on-one sessions with Verdura Spa golf and tennis pros. To enhance the effectiveness of the training programme, guests will also receive several spa treatments during the stay, including deep tissue massages and detoxifying treatments.

Ensuring the Jameson Retreat is as holistic in its approach as possible, nutrition is also a key focus. Using the detailed results of the Viavi tests, the meals during a guest stay will be carefully prepared with them in mind. The nutritious menu options will refuel guests, using only the freshest and most natural ingredients grown onsite by the organic garden of Verdura Società Agricola. There will be no alcohol or coffee and foods will be gluten free, contain no refined sugars and will not be processed. A two-hour cooking lesson with the Executive Chef of Verdura Resort for the whole group will also enable guests to prepare delicious, healthy dishes to suit their specific dietary needs on their return home.

Upon return from Verdura, guests will receive an individually designed five week-long programme of focussed personal training and aftercare, followed by a full re-assessment at Viavi. This thorough – and crucially, bespoke - approach will enable them to maintain good habits, enabling sustainable, life-long change.

Harry Jameson did one retreat in April. His next two retreats are taking place from 26th September to 3rd October and for 3rd October to 10th October.
Jameson Retreats from £7,500.
