Fitness Retreats with Sarah Maxwell

Sarah’s fitness retreats in the stunning Andalucian countryside focus on rediscovering your confidence and pride in your body, building strength and improving flexibility.

This is not a boot camp! Sarah’s mantra is to do what you can, when you can, and to feel good about what you have managed to achieve – above all, exercise should be fun and not guilt-ridden. The retreats are open to everyone, all ages and levels of physical fitness, with a maximum of six people on each week.

Sarah has chosen Finca Buenvino to host her fitness retreat because she doesn’t believe in dieting, excessive amounts of exercise or obsessive approaches to health and fitness. You can be fit and eat chocolate and drink wine and she will show you how!

I went on Sarah’s retreat with a dislike for exercise and no level of fitness. I came back a changed woman. Sarah showed me how I could fit exercise into my busy life, eat well and relax. It’s been life changing, thank you so much.
