Wellfit Families makes family wellness holidays a reality. This is an experience that motivates teenagers and their parents towards family bonding, through well-being and fitness.
This themed month combines a fusion of adventures, sports experiences and activities. Abseiling, bike rides along coastal trails, beach fit classes all combine to make some wonderful memories. Did we mention all the fun? Programme details
Our hosts are all professional sportsmen and women. They will be on hand to deliver motivation, engaging participants in beach sports, fitness classes and a wide range of activities. They host what we call “Champions Dinners” and give inspirational after dinner speeches.
