Train with Olympians at BodyHoliday St. Lucia
21st July 2021 – While no crowds will be permitted at the Tokyo Olympics (starting 23rd July) due to Covid-19, Olympics fever doesn’t have to be dampened – head to St Lucia instead, where BodyHoliday has a stellar line-up of Olympic stars, including Colin Jackson and Jamie Baulch, to help guests get their mojo back for the rest of 2021.
From 19th July, travellers from St. Lucia (currently Amber list) will not need to quarantine on arrival back in the UK or take the Day 8 tests if they have been double vaccinated, making it much easier for UK travellers to visit the destination. Furthermore, BodyHoliday prioritises safety for all; over 80% of their team members have been vaccinated and anyone not vaccinated always carries a negative antigen test to show no infection.
WellFit Families, 5th July – 27th August
With young adults suffering in the past months just as much as everyone else – not seeing peers, isolating and home schooling – the wellness of their bodies and minds deserves special attention. Over the summer holidays, children (aged 12 and over) and their frazzled parents can reconnect and revive under the St. Lucian sun. Perfect for multi-generational holidays, the safe and secure environment provided by BodyHoliday will bring the whole family to a state of enhanced wellbeing.
A host of world-famous athletes will be on hand to run fun fitness sessions for all the family. Train with Olympic swimmer Jazz Carlin (5th – 16th July), Welsh Olympic sprint champion and TV presenter Jamie Baulch (19th – 30th July), England Rugby League star Martin Offiah (2nd – 13th August) or Olympic runner Donna Fraser (16th – 27th August) for a memorable family-bonding experience.
SwimFit, 1st – 26th November
Wild or open-water swimming has taken off in the UK in a major way, both for its mental and physical health benefits. As the nights draw in, guests can hone their skills in the sunshine with some of the best in the business: swimming legends Keri Anne Payne and David Carry (1st – 12th November) or Jazz Carlin (15th – 26th November).
Pre-Christmas Restorative Break, 29th November – 17th December
Ending the year with a bang, Olympic runner Jamie Baulch will be back, this time joined by sporting hero Colin Jackson (29th November – 3rd December) and then diving champion Leon Taylor (6th – 17th December), for yet more opportunities for guests to learn from the best and move into 2022 feeling like the best version of themselves.
