Mark Warner has partnered with the London-based Personal Training (PT) specialist Equal Results to provide personal training in each of the resorts in Greece. 

Benefits of hiring a personal trainer and exercising on your holiday

A holiday is the chance to step away from all of those commitments which take up our time - and free ourselves to concentrate on what we most want. Our physical wellbeing is often something we sideline.  

So there's no better time or place to reconnect with our bodies than on holiday.  So, if you are heading on holiday to Greece this summer, read our blog on why hiring a personal trainer and exercising on your Mark Warner holiday is a great way to start a new healthy lifestyle or maintain your existing fitness level.

1. Get into shape on your holiday with a Personal Trainer

It can be often challenging to introduce exercise into a busy routine – managing a work life balance, having a career, looking after family. A holiday is an ideal way to establish a new healthy routine and start exercising without feeling pressurised. By hiring a Personal Trainer, you can reactivate muscles, which you may not have used in a while. This is a great way to ease you back into exercise in preparation for other activities you maybe doing on your holiday such as watersports, tennis, fitness classes and cycling. It is also first step towards setting up healthy and highly effective exercise habits, which you can take home and continue with, long after your tan has started to fade.

2. Maintain your fitness level on holiday with a Personal Trainer

Maintaining your fitness level on holiday helps you to stay consistent and prevent weight gain. By hiring one of our Personal Trainers on your holiday means you can keep up with your regular workout and maintain your  stamina, vitality and resilience. If you are training for a sport or event such as marathon, our Personal Trainers can also support with your general training. 

3. Create a personalised fitness plan with bodyweight exercises on holiday

Our Personal Trainers use a sustainable approach and will discuss your goals as well as take into account any pre-existing injuries or limitations. They will design a personalised work-out plan with bodyeight exercises on holiday, based on your body type, fitness level and age to help you get fitter in the short term. They will also provide motivation and help you set longer term realistic goals to maximise results and better equipped to deal with everyday challenges. It means you return home from your holiday feeling fitter and positive with a great framework in place to continue your fitness journey.

4. Working with a Personal Trainer Using the correct techniques

Your Personal Trainer can take you through a fitness session using any and all of the equipment available - while ensuring you are working with the correct techniques, to avoid injury and strain.  They'll know when to encourage you to press on, and when to advise you to rest. Our Personal Trainers will provide useful tips and skills to help you continue your fitness journey for when you return home from your holiday.

5. Cost of a Personal Training session

Working with Equal Results, we have developed 30 minute Personal Training sessions, which can tailored to suit any guests holidaying with Mark Warner in Greece. Prices start at £25 for a 30-minute introductory session, or £70 for a block of three sessions. Please note that all Personal Training Sessions will need to be pre-booked.

Guest can book personalised 30-minute sessions, and enjoy a personalised top to bottom workout programme, involving all the major muscle groups. Our expert personal trainers will combine strength-building exercises with cardio activities.  Our instructors will discuss your requirements, and arrange sessions to suit you, to ensure that you can make full use of the Mark Warner activities on your holiday from sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, mountain biking to road cycling and more.

6. Take Inspiration from the ancient Greeks

At Mark Warner, we feel there's no better place to focus on exercise than at our Greek resorts - in the country where physical training was first prioritised thousands of years ago, and given as important a place in ancient Greek culture as philosophy, mathematics, politics and the creative arts.  The word gymnasium comes from the ancient Greek word gumnazo. Translated literally, it means exercise.

The times may have changed, but the surroundings haven't - so why not take inspiration from the ancient Greeks and book yourself Personal Training Sessions by the shimmering seas and clear blue skies, as you take the next step on your fitness journey at one of our Greek resorts:  Aeolian Village Beach Resort in Lesvos; Kamari Resort in Rhodes; Lemnos Beach in Lemnos and Paleros Beach Resort on the Ionian coast

Personal Training FAQs

How does a Personal Trainer help you to get into shape?

Booking a Personal Trainer is a great way to start your fitness journey or maintain your fitness. An experienced Personal Trainer will create a tailored fitness plan and set realistic goals to keep you motivated, which is sustainable.

How long does it take to get into shape with a Personal Trainer?

It depends on how the frequency of the personal training sessions. If a person trains 3-4 times a week, they will see much faster results than someone, who works out only once a week. If you train a few times a week, you should start to see some progress after 3 weeks. 

How many Personal Training sessions do you need?

If you are looking to kick-start your fitness journey on holiday, we would recommend a pre-booking a block of 3 sessions.  After returning from your holiday, it is recommended to train 2-3 times a week but this will of course depend upon your budget. You could also supplement your fitness routine with the skills and tips you learned from our Personal Trainers on your holiday.
