This new holiday from Gleneagles Hotel sounds like its right up my street! How does a holiday in one of the most stunning locations on earth, paired with high-quality personal training, great healthy food and a luxury hotel sound? Yes? Me too!
The Gleneagles Hotel has announced a partnership with one of the country’s leading personal trainers, Matt Roberts, to deliver an exclusive wellness retreat at the five-star Perthshire property. The Matt Roberts Retreat – a three-day event from Friday 30 September to Sunday 2 October 2016 – will provide participants with the motivational boost to achieve a healthier lifestyle through a programme of fitness and wellness activities
Designed for those who already follow a regular exercise regime as well as those looking to elevate their fitness to the next level, the retreat aims to refuel a passion for health and fitness in a luxurious setting.
Matt Roberts and Gleneagles’ on-site team of wellness experts will provide guests with the personalised support to make healthier choices and the inspiration to develop new ways of thinking about exercise. Making the most of Gleneagles’ stunning rural location, the retreat will see Matt guiding guests on a hill trek, hosting a number of outdoor fitness sessions and introducing guests to basic meditation and mindfulness techniques. Each guest will also have the opportunity to relax with two personalised spa treatments and one ESPA Life treatment in the hotel’s award-winning Spa by ESPA.
“Gleneagles is a completely unique venue and the perfect location for a wellness retreat,” said Matt Roberts. “For almost 100 years, guests have been coming here in the pursuit of relaxation, adventure and fun and have drawn inspiration from the breath-taking natural beauty of the surrounding countryside. “The outdoor setting is perfect for learning about how exercise doesn’t always need to be about high-tech machines and equipment, but rather about using your own body to develop strength, flexibility and balance. “I’m delighted to be working with the team at Gleneagles and the ESPA Life professionals to facilitate what will be a transformational event – the perfect starting point for anyone looking for a new, healthier direction in life in the most inspiring and luxurious setting you can imagine.”
Specially-crafted menus will complement the fitness programme, providing guests with healthy and delicious food choices over the three days, while Gleneagles’ resident naturopath Louise Westra will host a discussion on nutritional wellbeing. “This retreat will be unique on many levels – giving guests access not only to one of the country’s leading personal trainers, but to Gleneagles’ highly skilled team of wellness practitioners,” said Louise Westra.
