  • The Best Fitness Workouts to Suit Your Body Type

    To find the best fitness holiday workouts to suit your body type, it is important to know which body type is most applicable to you. The endomorph, mesomorph and ectomorph are the three body types or ‘somatotypes’ that can be used as a basic formula to categorise ourselves in order to best maximise our fitness potential on a wellness holiday. Although, no fitness workout rigidly fits into one body type criteria, don’t be surprised to find overlapping similarities between multiple body types within your own body.

    Going for an exclusive fitness holiday is one good way to achieve your fitness goals, but to effectively improve your health and well-being, it helps to be informed of what exercises work with your body type, rather than against it.
