Being an outdoor fitness company we always think of ways we can better our service and add that little extra to what we already do. As our sessions consist of group training, we have been toying with the thought of taking this aspect to another level. A holiday retreat with added fitness training is another way of working out in a group format but still keeping that all important fun element alive. We already run all inclusive rugby camps for children in Italy and now we feel that we are ready to launch our first Luxury Fitness Holiday Retreats in Spain in 2020.

The Villa is an ultra-modern contemporary property, it occupies an enviable position close to the historic city of Granada at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Hillwalking, road and mountain biking are available straight from the door. The path behind the villa leads directly into the mountains.
The sloping site offers unrivalled views down to the city of Granada and up to the peaks of the Sierra Nevada’s where the excellent ski resort offers skiing/snowboarding for over 5 months of the year. The location of the villa is perfect – less than 5 minutes to the village of La Zubia, 15 minutes to Granada city, 20 minutes from Granada airport, around 40 minutes to Sierra Nevada ski station by car and 90 minutes from Malaga airport which is the cheapest in the area.
The villa is truly massive, covering 6 floors and over 15,000 sq ft of floor area, all accessed by an internal glass elevator. Accommodation for up to 24 adults. The massive feature list includes internal 6 floor glass elevator, outdoor infinity pool, indoor heated hydrotherapy pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, cinema, private bar, 5 outdoor decks, table tennis, foosball, air hockey, pool table, gym, internet room, wine cellar and a 360 degree viewing platform which doubles as a massage room.
The bedrooms are all modern and spacious. Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and shower.
We have 4 different room types. The Bunk Room with 6 beds, the quad room with 4 single beds, 3 doubles which are spacious and fit two people, they can also be made into twin rooms. If you would like a double to yourself there is an extra charge. The master suite is luxurious with a king size bed, large walk in shower and freestanding bath. It occupies most of the first floor with outstanding views across the city of Granada and access to a private balcony area.
THE LIVING SPACE
The main living area is completely open plan across the entire floor, partially separated only by the kitchen, the fireplace and the main staircase. It is the area that guests will spend the most time during visits to the villa.
The seating area consists of 2 “U shaped” leather sofas that seat 6-8 people each. One of them, is angled towards the living area balcony and the views to Granada below, the other is turned inwards towards a wall mounted 80″ LED TV with cable and media streaming box.
The area has the usual roof mounted LED illumination and also a series of large curved floor standing lamps that provide a softer glow. It separated from the dining area by the custom designed fireplace unit with sealed real wood fire for use during the winter months. This fire is in the middle of the living space but has a specially designed vertical flume that passes all the way up to the 4th floor.
THE TRAINING AREA
The outdoor gym is a new addition for the 2017 season. It was built to satisfy the high level of interest that we have had from guests wanting to use the villa as a spectacular location for CrossFit training holidays and also from clients interested in yoga or general wellbeing retreats. The area on the bedroom level contains a massive CrossFit training rig, over 7 meters in length with a wide range of exercises including step up plates, monkey bars and lifting mounts. The gym level contains an area which is long and thin and designated for use with weight sleds as well as a larger, more square area for general CrossFit body weight exercises and yoga.
The villa site was chosen at the outset to provide an excellent location for hill walking and cycling as these are passions of the owners. The path directly behind the villa is a direct access into the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Guests can simply walk out the door to access the amazing views and tracks that it provides. Obviously, the Sierra Nevada range covers an enormous area, so guests looking to do walks or tracks further afield can use the villa car or our transport service to bring them to other access points in the area.
For road cyclists, the villa is also an excellent starting point. The roads down to La Zubia are high quality and provide access to the main Sierra Nevada route (towards the ski station) without having to pass through the city. This road provides access to a number of cycle routes with high vertical ascents and a low amount of traffic. For mountain biking, the villa has a range of bikes including standard mountain bikes, folding mountain bikes (easier to transport by car) and our new electric mountain bikes which take a lot of the physical work out of the steep tracks around the property.
THE PROGRAMME FOR THE WEEK
MZ9 training system is known to be an outdoor regime. Well during this week you will be lucky to do it outdoor with amazing views.
The programme will include intensive training sessions but mentally very very rewarding. The plan for the week will be focus on the main activities of Bootcamp and Strength sessions and relaxation sessions/less intensive as Yoga and Pilates.
This will be an example of week programme.
NUTRITION AND LIFESTYLE
We have helped hundreds of people in the last 4 years with our Fitness and Nutrition program. Training is very important but everyone knows that nutrition is the rest of the 23hrs of the day away from the gym or your Personal Trainer. Many people try different type of diets before realising that diets can be very boring.
Nutrition has to be easy to follow, enjoyable and sustainable in long time.
We base our nutrition plan in 9 very important core value that you will discover during the week together.
During the Fitness Retreats a professional sport chef will be with us to make amazing meals and talk about nutrition in sports but in general life too.
TRANSFER FROM / TO AIRPORT
The check-in in the Villa will be on Saturday from 5.30pm. Unfortunately we can’t welcome anyone prior that time. If you arriving earlier in the day to Malaga or Granada airport please organise yourself for a little tour in the city before you can arrive to the villa.
We can arrange airport transfers and local journeys in advance for you from Malaga and Granada airport to the villa.
The drivers are professional and always on time, they are also more than familiar with the villa location. The transfer time from Malaga airport is around one hour and three quarters and cost from 120 Euros one way for 4 persons and bags. From Granada airport it is around 25 minutes and costs from 60 Euros one way for a 4 seater. All transfers can seat up to 24 persons and prices will vary depending on numbers.
Their vehicles are all modern Mercedes cars – generally E Class for up to 4 people and Vito for up to 8 (with luggage). They also provide a very high- quality air conditioned bus which is useful for large groups.
Once you book your retreats we will create a group with other people that flight to the same airport and if you want you can organise in small group to save some money.
