ActivSPA Alpine Fast ‘n’ Fit Retreats
Want the body benefits of fasting while enjoying fantastic food? Then this is your retreat! Join Amanda and her experienced team this year in the comforts of Chalet Le Chardon for a deliciously healthy week based on the year’s hottest health topic, 5:2 fasting and HIIT (high intensity interval training) as currently featured in Amanda’s book Eat, Fast, Slim.
The Fast ‘n Fit package includes daily yoga, high intensity interval training and a daily outdoor activity. All breaks include 2 x 500 calorie fasting days taken either as juices or light meals.
“The recent popularity of the 5:2 fast has really helped people understand my holidays better – and prove the amazing benefits of fasting for health, weight loss and shape change. Simply put, the body burns more fat in a fasted state. Expect to come back from a Nourish holiday looking and feeling amazing” Amanda Hamilton.
