Located outside Stratford-upon-Avon, The Luxury Health Retreat’s Grace House aims to combine an intense fitness break with a little pampering. One of four properties around the country holding retreats, the location boasts plenty of woodland and gardens to explore. The house itself features a cinema and games rooms, as well as a kitchen, dining room and lounge with open fire. Dedicated fitness and beauty teams, made up of qualified and experienced staff, providing work outs and training guidance as well as physio services, hairdressing, massage, manicures and more. An on-site chef is employed to prepare healthy meals and buffets for guests on a daily basis, with the rural setting allowing daily group workout sessions to be conducted outdoors in private. An emphasis is placed on giving the clients adequate individual support, with retreats generally consisting of six to 12 guests and a six-week ‘aftercare’ mentor email service included for participants to get ongoing guidance and encouragement after their stay. Retreats also include health assessment measurements, a cookery workshop, motivational seminars, yoga, walks, and introductions to the likes of kettle bells, boxercise and functional training.
