The Active Retreat - Our Story

It All Started in 2004

Steve has been a personal trainer since 2004. Simon has worked in customer facing roles all his life. They’ve also enjoyed a lot of holidays! These skills and experiences blend perfectly, enabling us to offer the best active holiday on the market.

The Active Retreat was inspired by a personal training client telling Steve about her awful experience on a fitness holiday. She’d paid and fortune and came back disappointed and disillusioned. Steve knew fitness holidays could be done better, so made it a personal mission to offer fitness holidays with a difference!

Come Join us

The first retreat was in 2016 and the journey has been a ride ever since then!

We’ve refined what we offer, tweaked the experience, the accommodation and the format. What we’re left with is (in our humble and correct opinion) the best healthy holiday you’ll ever have!

Too many active holidays are over-priced, lack variety, aren’t much fun or are a little too serious. That’s not our style – we want to offer retreats where the guests feel at ease, can relax and enjoy themselves but don’t feel as though they are in a holiday prison camp.

Come and join us for a week in the sunshine and see for yourself!
