La Réserve Ramatuelle Offers Stylish Boot Camp for Fitness

Swimsuit season is fast approaching, and La Réserve Ramatuelle, just outside of St-Tropez on the French Riviera, has the best way to get in shape without fasting or quick-stepping through tires. The hotel's très français boot camp will have two sessions in April and two sessions in May.

Activities at the boot camp include walks through the Mediterranean countryside, spa treatments, and authentic cuisine courtesy of Chef Eric Canino. Designed for groups of 4-8 people, it's a great excuse to bring along some friends. (Think Sex and the City on the Mediterranean—you know Carrie and the girls would love this!)

The Boot Camp is a five-day (four-night) program. Guests start with a medical assessment to measure physical aptitude. The next day, training kicks off with an hour-long yoga session and healthy breakfast before a guide leads a fast-paced walk through the hills and along the coast. (Good to know: The duration and pace of these walks is determined on an individual basis.) After the walks, guests can relax for the rest of the day, or try a healing and rejuvenating spa program that includes balneotherapy, body wraps, and the La Réserve Better Aging body treatment. Guests can also add à la carte experiences such as beauty and body therapies exclusively crafted for La Réserve by La Mer.
