Arriving into Palma de Mallorca the transfer to the local town of Alcudia, the location of the Spain Fitness Bootcamp, takes approximately one hour on the A32 bus service (direct from the airport). A rep will be waiting to meet you off the bus on arrival in Alcudia and transfer you to your accommodation. You can arrive at any time on Sunday and check in after 2pm. After checking in, you are free to chill at the villa, hit the beach, or do some stand-up paddleboarding. A group orientation and introduction session are on Monday at lunchtime. But on Sunday evening you will get to know everyone as we will make reservations at a nice nearby restaurant for the whole group.

The Bay of Pollenca has crystal calm flat water in the morning and is the perfect place to do some stand-up paddle due to it being relatively shallow and exceptionally beautiful. Stand-up paddle is very good for your core strength and stability. Session done right would be better than doing countless crunches and it’s a lot more enjoyable! On Mondays, we include a lesson, the rest of the week you can just get a board and get out on the water at any time!

Training hard and efficiently is only one factor that goes into delivering great results. What you put into your body is arguably even more important. One of the great things about the Spain fitness bootcamp is the really healthy meals to really complement your fitness training goals. Nutritionists have been involved in the creation of a delicious healthy eating menu which is included in your program.
A beautiful Beach house apartment based on shared dorms. The accommodation is located right next to the training areas, so rolling out of bed and start training is easy. It is also a haven of relaxation when you are not training. Equipped with a rooftop terrace with views of the ocean.
Working out together and living together is a very bonding experience, it’s a great way to make friends. Don’t worry about needing your own space also. The villa is sufficiently big with plenty of chill out areas for you to catch some quiet time too.
Due to the nature of the fitness Bootcamp, people do not tend to have late-nights. You will be exhausted! So you can expect to get a good nights sleep in fan-cooled rooms.
All group fitness training sessions 2x per day
5 x Sunrise Yoga sessions overlooking the ocean a week
Unlimited SUP sessions
Beautiful nature trek
Transfers to and from Alcudia from the airport are not provided (there is a direct bus service).
Where is the camp?
The camp is located in the North of Mallorca in the bay of Pollenca, arguably the best part of this Balearic island in Spain. Flights from Europe are short and often super cheap. For North Americans — we recommend finding the cheapest flight to Europe and then booking the leg to Mallorca separately. The training camp and accommodation are in the same spot, so no commuting. The camp is about 1 km from town and 50 meters from the sea and in a national park. It’s stunning. In the nearby towns you will really feel like you are on a holiday. Lots of restaurants and little bars around.
How do I get there?
Arrange your flight into Palma de Mallorca (PMI) and get on the bus to the nearby town Alcudia. It will take about 50 minutes by bus. You will be picked up from Alcudia, a 5 min drive. There will be a representative there with a sign with their name on.
What must I bring?
Please bring suitable training gear such as trainers, a couple of shorts, sports bras for women, and training tops. 3 quarter shorts to work out in are great. Bring about 3 sets of work out outfits. You can pack light because you can buy everything there if necessary. Bring a beach towel as well as a towel for the gym. Bring some warm layers for the evenings as even in June it can still be a bit chilly at night. There is a washing machine (cost per load is about $6).
Can I come alone?
YES! About 85% of people do this trip as a solo traveler. It’s a very sociable environment at the camp and you will make friends very quickly. You can also meet people online before you even leave home through an online buddy system (via Facebook) and you will all receive a number to be in the Whatsapp group before you arrive as well.
Will there be down time from training?
Yes! You can head to beaches, beach clubs, amazing viewpoints and look outs. You can get speedboats with a captain to relax on the water. There are amazing hikes. There are also a host of tours you can undertake.
What is the normal demographic split?
Probably 70% women 30% men. Both sexes tend to have different goals and motivations about booking the camp as well. With women it’s usually about toning up, weight loss and body confidence. With men it’s usually more about strength and conditioning training. Not exclusively, there are people who join for all reasons. The important thing to consider is everyone is catered for at the Bootcamp and people’s goals might change throughout their stay.
Why book this fitness trip?
There’s no gym in the Spain center, just a facility. You can practice yoga on the rooftop with amazing views of the Mediterranean Sea, do high-intensity interval training, training outdoors, SUP and volleyball sessions, and hike. You can join beginning every Sunday.
