Below is a typical itinerary for Motivate Boot Camp's fitness retreats in Portugal.

Day 1: Saturday - arrival day

You will fly into Faro airport where your pre-booked taxi will be waiting for you to bring you to the villa. All the boot campers will be arriving today, and you can get to know everyone before you arrive through our WhatsApp and Facebook groups.

Most people travel solo so do not worry, you won’t feel alone, you may even be in a taxi with somebody if they land at a similar time as you. Once you arrive at the complex you can settle in, have some food, and relax, sunbathe, or take a wander around the area. You will all have the first dinner tonight and usually an early night before your early wake up on day 2.

Day 2: Sunday

You start off nice and early at 7 a.m. with your full body measurements (weight, inches, and fitness tests: 1-mile run/walk followed by 10 timed exercises - don’t worry they are adaptable for everyone).

These are done at the end of the week too so we can monitor improvements. Once we finish these it will be time for a healthy breakfast by the pool. Next is your welcome talk, where we will go through everything involved in the week and answer any questions. It's then straight into a variety of fitness sessions until lunchtime where you will be served something light and healthy. Throughout the week we have approximately 30 fitness classes, with elements of cardio, resistance, core, and stretch.

The afternoon is then yours to relax - chill around the pool, head to the beach, take a walk into town, or just relax with a book or a film. You finish the day with a high-intensity session followed by a gentle relaxation/stretch class like Pilates or yoga and you all sit together for a well deserved evening meal made by their in house chef before relax and bed.

Day 3: Monday

Similar to day 2 except you start the day with a run/walk and there will be a workshop on healthy living after breakfast (they run these days with different topics every day). You also have a delicious barbeque in the evening, a great way to finish off the day

Day 4: Tuesday

Morning sessions similar to previous, but in the afternoon the masseuse comes in and sports massages are offered, just 25 EUR per 30 minutes, and it’s a perfect way to relax the tiring muscles. In the evening, you have an optional trip to Albufeira Old Town for dinner, where Motivate Boot Camp uses a fantastic beachfront restaurant. Some of the ladies stay out and enjoy a few cocktails before heading back to the villa (not too late as hangovers and running don't mix).

Day 5: Wednesday

This morning is beach workout day! You head to a section of the beach approximately 45 minutes’ walk away (fantastic coastal walk with stunning views of Albufeira). Once there, you do a beach interval run/walk, followed by a few fitness sessions and team games - rounders is pretty tough on the beach!

Once you finish at the beach, you have lunch (Motivate Boot Camp brings a picnic) then most of the ladies head into the town to do a bit of shopping and relax, before coming back for the last class of the day and dinner.

Day 6: Thursday

This is the last full day of fitness so lots of sessions in today's schedule - but it will be worth it tomorrow! The aching will have passed by now and you will be ready to hit the sessions full steam ahead. The masseuse comes in again this afternoon for anyone who would like extra massages (sports and relaxation massages are available).

Day 7: Friday

It's the last day! You start the day with your measurements and fitness tests again to see your results and how amazing you did throughout the week. Then after breakfast, Motivate Boot Camp offers additional excursions ranging from relaxing boat trips around the Albufeira coastline, to more energetic options such as paddle boarding and surfing.

These are optional so if you would like the last day to just relax then that’s no problem! We finish the day with a goodbye workshop and the last supper. You will have made friends for life, so this night can get a bit emotional!

Day 8: Saturday - leaving day

Time to leave! Your taxis will pick you up and take you directly to Faro Airport where you will head home after an amazing week! Checkout is 10 a.m. and most people do get the early flights between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. This is not the end of your journey, as Motivate Boot Camp will send you lots of post boot camp support and check up on you regularly to keep you on track, and many people rebook with Motivate Boot Camp for the next one!
