Get Ready to Punch! A Unique Fitness Boxing Weekend at Costa Navarino

By Journey to Greece on July 27, 2018

Who would have thought that the latest fitness trend, that Hollywood royalty have succumbed to, would be on offer at The Westin Resort Costa Navarino with boxing coach, extraordinaire Gregory Mallios.

The first Fitness Boxing weekend at Costa Navarino, from 18 to 20 May 2018, needed no prior boxing experience. While not knowing what to expect, one can figure if it is something David Beckham and Selena Gomez are swearing by, let us at least give it our best shot!

The weekend was a challenge from start to finish, and though all were dripping in sweat and the muscles were on fire, the beauty of it is that you can do it at your own pace. It is a fitness regimen fit for every age, combining unique aerobic workouts that stimulate cardio-respiratory and muscular systems, while keeping one’s mind sharp.

With every punch and uppercut, the strength flows through the veins. So, the verdict is if the sculpted bodies and six packs of coach Greg Mallios and his team aren’t motivation enough to don your boxing gloves and wraps, it is the post-workout high that should convince you.

The Boxing sessions were complete with Yoga and Aquarobics at WestinWORKOUT®, but one could also try out novel experiences, like golf, racquet sports, or hiking trails to discover Messinia’s incredible natural beauty in spring. Throughout the weekend, the sunny weather was ideal for invigorating dips in the Ionian early morning, or a pre-breakfast bike ride, and after an exhilarating Fitness Boxing session on The Dunes Beach by the captivating sunset, ending the day at the sprawling, award-winning Anazoe Spa for some serious pampering.

All designed to make you feel good and look good, with the added bonus of bragging rights of having been among the first to have tried the latest celeb fitness trend in Costa Navarino!
