When work and life gets in the way of your fitness goals, it's time to take a holiday—The BodyHoliday in St. Lucia, that is. The all-inclusive health and wellness resort, which underwent a $20 million renovation last year, was designed to help you effortlessly get back on the fitness wagon. First, catch up on much needed-sleep. When you're feeling rested and relaxed, ease into a fun exercise routine—including spinning, yoga, golf, mountain biking, cave diving, kayaking and swimming—plus a healthy and delicious diet customized to your needs. If muscle memory serves you right, you'll quickly be up for the physical challenge of the resort’s weekly Island Quadrathlon—a blood-pumping endurance challenge featuring a 50-minute all-terrain bike ride, a 15-minute run up Gros Islet, a 100-foot rappel down a cliff, a short swim out to a kayak in the Caribbean Sea, and a 2.5 mile kayak trip back to the resort. Or you can skip the “race” altogether and kick it on the sugar sand beach with a beer and a book.
>>$700 per person per night, includes accommodations, meals, activities, daily spa treatments and more. The Island Quadrathlon costs an extra $100 per participant and takes place once a week with a six-person limit (thebodyholiday.com).
