The BodyHoliday SwimFit

What a fantastic two weeks we had in Saint Lucia.

The BodyHoliday really is a special place. It's a perfect mix of activity holiday and total relaxation. How can you stay stressed when you have a message everyday?

That's why we had to have a retreat at the BodyHoliday. This year we had our very first SwimFit retreat as part of the resort's WellFit month, which aimed at holiday makers that are not afraid to try new things. We offer a 5 day swim focused retreat to 'first timers' like Ros, who had a chronic fear of water and wanted to over come that all the way through to 'time chasers' like Bruce, who wanted to master his tumble turns and get faster on his 50m freestyle. 

By the end of day one we had Ros swimming her first length of freestyle and by day four she swam 1,000m in the sea. As you can imagine we were all so proud of her and there may have been a few tears of joy! Then we have Bruce who did master the tumble turn, and since his time with us on the SwimFit retreat, he has already smashed his 50m freestyle target by almost 6 seconds.  The mix of guests were perfect for our Straight-Line Swimming method as it is for everyone. It's based on 3 swimming fundamentals that we believe are key to making swimming easy, more efficient and most importantly more effective. 

Alongside our SwimFit retreat we also offered guests of the resort 1:1 swimming lessons and during our two weeks at The BodyHoliday we coached 60 swimming lessons. There are so many amazing stories from this retreat, we couldn't wait to share them with you, so we are showcasing them through our social media channels every Monday. Make sure you follow us on Instagram @triscape_ , to hear the stories.

And to top all that off we ended our time at the resort with the first ever 1 Mile Sea Swim at The BodyHoliday. We had over 40 participants and it was incredible to see every single person running out the water, across the finish line with a HUGE smile on their face. They received their medals and it finally sunk in that they had achieved their sporting challenge!
