Healthy Yacht Charters
Healthy Charters, Healthy Vacations
How many times have you returned from a vacation, feeling like you need to take another one just to recover from the overindulgence of the previous weeks?
We’ve all been there, after spending afternoons lying on beaches, sampling the local gastronomical offerings… maybe having one cocktail too many.
But what if you could enjoy all of the relaxation and luxury of a yacht charter, whilst maintaining your health and fitness regime? Impossible, right?
Wellness tourism is a growing global trend, as vacationers realize it’s not necessary to sacrifice their health for an amazing travel experience.
If you’re looking for a different type of charter experience – one which will leave you feeling detoxed, rejuvenated, calm and collected, this is a dream we can make a reality.
Read on to find out how…
If you´re a fitness fanatic, the chances are the gym is your second home. Or perhaps you´ve even stepped up to installing your own personal gym in your house. The idea of not having access to your usual exercise equipment may seem a little daunting when considering a charter vacation. After all, you´re miles from land – how can you work out on a boat?!
Well, many modern superyacht designers have considered this. After all, this is your luxury home-from-home. You can expect to find state-of-the-art exercise facilities aboard many yachts; including treadmills, exercise bikes, ellipticals and rowing machines. We can also source specific training equipment ahead of your trip. Yacht gyms are usually placed on-deck, or with sea views, so you can gaze out at the stunning scenery whilst you work up a sweat. Then of course, you can slide into the water to cool off.
If you´re new to your fitness journey and in need of a little guidance or motivation, a personal trainer might be the perfect crew member for you. This is an opportunity for some 1-1 training, with personalised programs to fit your goals. Many superyachts have a PT on board as standard. However, if you´re looking for a crewed catamaran or yacht charter, let your consultant at Yacht.Vacations know. Many charter crews share your love of fitness, and have additional skills to offer. If you want to practice yoga, diving, or HIIT, let us know and we will select a team to make this a reality.
Exercise and nutrition are the staples of a healthy lifestyle. The chances are that if you´re concerned with maintaining your body through movement, you´re also conscious of what you choose to fuel it with.
Your crewed yacht charter will include a chef, who will be delighted to prepare a delicious custom menu according to your requirements. If you have allergies or intolerances – no problem! Do you follow a vegan, macrobiotic, paleo or other dietary lifestyle? Our crew will create mouth-watering dishes, enabling you to continue feeling vibrant and healthy.
If you´re looking for something a little different to your usual weights routine – why not take to the water? Without wishing to state the obvious – on your yacht charter you´ll be literally surrounded by opportunities to engage in a little aqua-exercise.
Swimming is one of the best all-round exercise options for cardio, burning calories, boosting your metabolism and working a wide selection of muscles. Whether you´re a snorkeller, diver, or more of a doggy-paddler, any movement in the water will make you feel great.
If you prefer to enjoy the clear waters from the surface, you might consider a kayak or stand-up paddle board. Although relaxing, these are deceptively active pursuits. Kayaking will work your upper body as you glide across the ripples. Stand up paddle boards will challenge your balance and core strength. It’s not as easy as it looks! Your yacht will most likely have these on board already, but if there are any water activities you’d like to try just say the word and we’ll do the rest.
Just because you’re on a yacht charter, doesn’t mean you can’t step foot on dry land. Your crew can take you ashore for some other activities. Beach volleyball, hiking, cycling, or a walk along the beach are a few of the options awaiting you.
In your quest for a healthy mind and body, you mustn’t neglect relaxation. After an active day, why not unwind with a luxurious spa treatment? Your captain can take you to one of the nearby resorts, even making recommendations and reservations on your behalf. All you need to do is lie back and relax.
If the idea of a jaunt to dry land doesn’t appeal to you, you may consider a yacht with a steam shower, sauna or jacuzzi. Picture a massage on the deck, looking across the waves as your tension fades away. Maybe you’d prefer to sip a green juice (or champagne…) from the whirlpool as the sun sets.
