Discover active retreats in Thailand that specialize in improving health and fitness for weight-loss and detoxification. Programs are tailored to an individual’s specific needs and goals whether it’s to maximize weight loss, help with kicking a habit through building up stamina and willpower or a chance to dedicate time to improve fitness through an intensive boot camp-style approach to working out.
Active retreats are normally intensive in terms of their schedule, seeking to get the best results in the time available which in turn makes for a physically demanding course which is tailored to each person’s current health and fitness levels.
Fitness and exercise classes vary between centers but could include any of the following:
- Muay Thai Boxing
- Personal training sessions
- Running and cycling
- Boot camp style circuit training
Generally speaking, programs start early in the morning with optional classes during the day and a compulsory late afternoon/early evening class to finish off the day. Free time is often incorporated into programs, but expectations are to maintain healthy practices throughout the day with healthy eating, rest, massage and spa treatments used to compliment and accelerate the process of detoxification.
Healthy eating is the basis of detoxifying the body through internal cleansing. Some retreats offer superfoods and natural herb remedies to help speed up the detox process. Vegetarian or vegan foods normally form the basis of a meat-free diet which allows the digestive system to rest and recuperate.
Superfoods and diets may include:
- Wheatgrass shots
- Herbal supplements, vitamins and minerals
- Liver flush drinks
- Bentonite clay
- Raw foods
Rest and relaxation are important elements to any health and wellbeing program as many people live very busy lives caught up in habitual thinking. The chance to escape day-to-day life is a chance to give yourself mental and physical freedom to unwind, relax and reflect. It is often during these moments that we gain valuable insights about our lives and those around us. Active retreats can help build up the mental stamina to achieve new goals but also give us the body a natural boost in endorphins that can help burn off stress and anxiety throughout the process.
Naturally, there is alway time to enjoy just relaxing by the pool to read a book or spend some time exploring the local area. It’s possible to arrange excursions before and after the retreat so that you can really make the best of your time in Thailand.
