Pine Cliffs Resort in the Algarve, a Luxury Collection Resort, has launched a new bootcamp retreat programme called ‘Insanity’ for those looking for a challenge in 2023. Inspired by military training, the Insanity bootcamp programme includes intensive workouts to build strength, endurance and agility that take place outdoors overlooking the ocean, on the beach and under the ubiquitous pine trees that give the resort its name.

Available all-year-round, the three-, five- or seven-night retreats run by Serenity SPA come with a full board meal plan designed by a nutritionist.

The classes in the programme focus on the development of resistance, strength, agility and energy, through functional training, weight training, cardiovascular exercises and running in short and intense circuits. Each guest benefits from a physical assessment and personal training classes, whilst nutrition consultations and spa treatments and massages to sooth aching muscles, complete the experience and help guests achieve their goals faster.

In downtime guests have complementary access to Thermal Oasis at Serenity SPA with its steam room,  hydrotherapy pool, herbal sauna, outdoor jacuzzi, indoor and outdoor relaxation areas. And those that have any energy left can utilise the full facilities of the resort with its indoor and outdoor pools, tennis academy and the stunning white sand Falésia beach.
