Christmas may be fun but it can also be a hectic time of the year thanks to all the parties, shopping and festive preparations. Most of us will drink and eat too much and the season may have a not-so-festive effect on our health, predominantly energy levels, digestion and immune system.

Health and Fitness Travel has launched and we believe that maintaining a healthy body by learning to incorporate a healthy lifestyle as part of our enjoyment away on holiday is essential. Swapping the 'fly and flop' traditional way of holidaying to one where you promote your health through learning an inspiring new activity or perhaps taking part in a recreational activity you really enjoy such as yoga is the healthy option. This can fill you with confidence and a sense of well-being, long after your holiday has ended. As many of you will know already the fantastic feeling you experience after exercise or a massage, we aspire our travellers to feel that great on holiday and even more healthy, fitter, inspired and energetic.

Besides professional athletes, there are none as fit as the men and women of our military. Their discipline and commitment to fitness is an inspiration to all. It makes sense then, if you are looking to get in shape, to consult the veterans of some of the most demanding physical endurance tests known to man. Sadly, not all of us are well-acquainted with the professionals, so at Health and Fitness Travel, we decided to get in contact with a member of our armed forces to understand better the benefits of a military style bootcamp holiday.
