Holiday Like a Celebrity
- 29 June 2011 29 June 2011
Would you like to holiday like a celebrity? They are often seen relaxing in magnificent holiday destinations when they want to escape the pressures of their paparazzi fuelled life. We, too, require a quick getaway from our daily working life so that we can be transported into our own personal paradise. But in today's world, you can go on these breaks without a large bank account and enjoy your next health and fitness holiday.
So why are celebrities inspired by a healthy lifestyle? These active and wellness escapes are extremely popular as they contain health and fitness programmes, which are specifically designed to be fun, challenging and offer less traditional exercises. Now, more than ever, celebrities need to look and feel great, which involves maintaining their beautifully sculpted bodies so as to remain in the public eye for a lifetime. A wellness getaway would not only allow you to keep that unnecessary weight off but to enjoy exercising, which over time can become tiresome.
Each spa and sport inspired destination has varying health packages and can be catered according to sex, individual health needs and goals. A celebrity health conscious hideaway can range from yoga and Pilates in the Caribbean, to a spa experience in the Maldives, right up to circus sports in St Lucia.
After your workout, indulge in an exquisite dining experience or simply bask in the glory of your beautiful surroundings and culture. So, here are the top five celeb health resorts meaning that you too can escape to paradise just like your favourite celebrities do.
