Yacht Chartering for Health
CAN YOU IMAGINE SUCH A VACATION WHERE YOU TREAT YOURSELF WITH DELICIOUS FOOD EVERY DAY AND FINISH THE VOYAGE IN EVEN BETTER SHAPE THAN AT THE START? CHARTER A LUXURY YACHT WHERE THE UNIQUE BLEND OF FITNESS RESOLUTION AND SELF INDULGENCE IS TURNING INTO REALITY.
Modern luxury charters provide all the necessary facilities for fitness. You will find state-of-the-art equipment of all sorts. On many yachts, there is a state of the art personal fitness gym. Each yachts layout has a different gym location, but each variant has its own advantages. If you prefer to enjoy splendid sea views while working out hard, choose the yacht where the gym is placed in a waterfront area and sliding doors will help to let in some fresh air. For those who need quick access to water during training, there can be gym compartments equipped with fold-down platforms.
Having in mind any fitness challenge, from stomach flattening to whole body rejuvenation, you should thoroughly describe all your plans and expectations to your charter broker. The broker will be able to recommend the proper yacht, having aboard everything you need for your training. Besides facilities, there are two more points that must be considered: crew experience and cuisine level.
Please note, that the list of fitness equipment and its difficulty level can be different on each yacht, so tell your broker which points are essential. Whether you tend to work with weights, improve your stamina, or work out abs, you can find the suitable yacht where all the necessary fitness machines are available: stationary bikes, an elliptical, climbers, or press machines. If you need specific equipment, it can also be arranged. Those guests who prefer swimming to any weight lifting will appreciate a yacht that has an on-board lap pool with moving water.
Training alone is always an option; however, if a personal trainer’s assistance is needed, you can find crew members that are hired for dual purposes like deck hand/personal trainer. Many crew members have additional talents, from yoga and Pilates to Tae-Bo and capoeira. If you would like to improve particular skills or gain a new one, inform your charter broker in order to pick the most suitable yacht.
Cuisine is also very important for the success of your fitness program. On a charter yacht, you are free to follow any diet: vegan, vegetarian, dairy-free, macrobiotic, Blood Type Diet, etc.
Skilled in all cuisines, your chef will demonstrate that healthy food can be a real gourmet feast. Meals will be prepared according to your diet requirements and you can still count on a five-star level of cuisine.
Any fitness program is bound to succeed if you follow it aboard a luxury yacht. Mother Nature herself supplies you with the best tools for health strengthening. Daily activities such as swimming or snorkeling have an amazing positive effect, boosting your metabolism and burning plenty of calories. You get your back, arms, and legs toned. Water sports are also brilliant for cardio and one hour in seawater can be enough to reboot your spirit.
Paddling is a good choice if you need a break from routine training. You can use a stand-up board for improving your skills or take a kayak and go around the anchorage, exploring the area, relishing the excellent views, and exercising at the same time. Your crew will check on you from time to time with encouraging words and cold drinks.
Your training program can be further expanded ashore. There are plenty of places where you can go hiking, ride a bicycle, or play volleyball on the beautiful beach (keep in mind that even active shopping while visiting every boutique at a fast clip still doesn’t count as a sport.)
During your trip planning you can include whichever onshore spa you like to your destinations list. Ask your captain for help with advance reservations.
When it comes to “apres-workout”, charter yachts can provide a lot of facilities aboard. You can choose a yacht where you find all that you need after a hard day of training, whether it’s a steam shower or a celestial massage session – relaxing, deep-tissue, hot-stone, or other massage techniques.
The number of choices for fitness on the luxury yacht is growing noticeably. Even if there’s no yoga instructor or acupuncturist among the crew members, there is a whole new industry at the yacht guests’ disposal to help them with proper fitness programs and personal trainers for its realization (there are supernumerary cabins for equipment on most of the yachts). You can also bring your own trainer, who will accompany you during the trip and correct the program in order to get the best results.
With an experienced broker’s help, you will find a suitable charter yacht which perfectly mirrors the realization of your plans, whether it’s weight correction or toning your physique.
There is an ocean of fitness possibilities waiting for you.
