We recently were made aware of a “luxury fitness boot camp” called Camp Biche, located in southwestern France. Camp Biche is the brainchild of Libby Pratt and described as “One of the 5 Best Fitness Boot Camps in the World by London Times Travel Magazine. It is also known as a “fat camp” and it’s meals are all completely plant based (totally vegan – no animal products).
Each day in the full week program (except Saturdays which are arrival and departure days), includes a “three to four hour hike through the countryside”, assorted afternoon offerings like pool, gym, yoga, pilates, circuit training, boxing or aerobics and a full hour massage. Cost for the entire week is 3,920 euros (approximately $5383 US$) plus transportation to and from Toulouse Airport or the Cahors or Montauban train stations.
This is a really cool thing and I’m sure would be a great lifetime experience. Not sure about the vegan diet at this point, but their claims that “During our signature seven-night, six-day Kickstart program, most of our clients lose between 8 and 30% of their total body fat and several inches off of their waistline.” are certainly impressive.
