Amidst the Chianti hills 30 minutes south of Florence the Tuscan countryside is extremely tranquil and relaxing. Tuscan Fitness has taken over a host of rooms ranging from private villas to apartments whatever suits their clients and it operates not only a health and fitness programme but it is also a leisure retreat on the premises of the Borgo.
For us it was a great getaway to a holiday when we ate great food that is healthy and organically sourced. Regrettably, it was too short.
We chose to participate in some of the daily activities like Yoga in the morning by the swimming pool, hikes and bike rides through winding roads and paths that surround the property amidst the stunning environment.
There were others who engaged themselves in a challenging weight loss programme, aimed at toning and improving fitness, with a personal professional trainer in group circuits. Each guest can design the daily schedule and itinerary best suiting his/her goals.
The Borgo is self sufficient in every way. Two swimming pools (adults and kids) and a traditional Tuscan restaurant served by extremely friendly staff who pamper the guests in every way they can.
The best thing I found was that Alexandra, the vision behind Tuscan Fitness has designed each meal with a careful mix of ingredients with well balanced source of protein and salads varying from day to day. At breakfast we were treated to some delicious homemade peanut butter, hand made granola with fruits and yoghurt and even wholemeal pancakes! The concept is that losing weight and keeping healthy is not about starvation but about eating the right types of food in correct proportions with a balance of herbs and spices to give your body what it needs keeping it fully satiated and leaving you trim and healthy feeling energetic.
Alexandra's warm, personalised and friendly approach is extremely rewarding and you can see her working those pounds off with you!
We had a wonderful stay and will be heading again in 2014 for a full week to relax in Fontebussi and to really take advantage of the programme and explore many interesting surrounding towns!"
