Training and Program
Many people have repetitive and less than optimal movement patterns incorporated in their modern daily life. Both in terms of working habits. (Desktop and computer work, etc.) but also often in terms of exercising – performing the same kind of movement over and over again, with standardized equipment and machines.
The foundation for the training at our fitness training bootcamp is highly functional movements performed on a natural terraine, which will secure a much higher variation in the way the muscles are stimulated.
A lot of the training is based on challenging competitions, often working in groups. In the training you will find components of some of the following:
- : Calisthenics/Bodyweight strength and conditioning training
- Boxing training
- Kettlebell work
- Running & sprinting (Trail and off track, barefoot, sand, etc)
- Muscle release techniques
- Yoga and mobility work
- Various challenges, drills, games and competitions
During the week we also have activities such as surfing and horse riding.
The diet throughout the course is based on natural foods of organic and local produce. We only use highly nutritious and non processed foods, and your diet is created to secure a well balanced amount of nutrients, including an optimised fatty acid ratio.
The diet mainly consists of:
- Free range meats and eggs
- Nuts and seeds as well as healthy oils
The diet is put together based on what the body is designed to live on, rather than what is available in the modern supermarket. For many this will mean a diet with a lower ratio of carbohydrates than their usual intake, and it may take a while for your body to adapt to this as it has alter its metabolic systems. This can sometimes be felt as cravings for sugary foods.
The benefits of such diet changes are many, including improved insulin sensitivity, better body composition in terms of ratio of muscle and body fat, improved hormonal balance.
Seafood will be a large part of the diet, so if you do not like seafood or are allergic to certain types of seafood, please let us know in advance, so we will have the chance to arrange an alternative for you.
You can chose between accommodation in either our rustic houses, or at the hotel. The houses each contain a bathroom, living room and kitchen, a wood burning fire place, as well as 2 bedrooms.
In both houses and hotel there are options for double bed or seperate beds. If accommodated in houses you’ll have free access to the hotel swimming pool, and other facilities as well The distance between the houses and the hotel is only around 100 meters.
Usually our meeting point before training and activities is at the lawn of the houses.
You will find wifi at the hotel, and the hotel area. However we recommend that you limit your time in front of a laptop or device as much as possible.

Choice of transport
Transportation is on a global scale causing a big release of greenhouse gasses, which influences the climatic balance, and is related to big consequences for the earth eco systems and overall health.
We support people who choose to travel by train, or similar transport, instead of flying, with a refund of the ticket of up to €100 Euro (depending on distance traveled and length of stay). Contact us for more information regarding this.
Thanks for a great “vacation”! It was very inspiring. Everything from the food to the training. I’ve certainly gotten some great tools, which I’ll continue to use.” Julie
“My 7 days at the camp was a true eye opener and learning experience for me. Halfway through the first day, I thought I wouldn’t make it. But I did:) I was challenged on my physique, but I needed that kick. I could both feel and see the improvement towards the end, and I’ve implemented many of your diet patterns since I came home.” Ninna Henriksen
“Thanks for a great stay and a different holiday, which I’ll never forget. I miss the wonderful place, the grilled Doradas and our training at the beach.”
“I had a wonderful time. Relaxing and very hard at the same time. I enjoyed the mix! It seems like we found the key to my shoulder problem. It’s been almost completely pain free ever since.” Shireen
“Thanks for the pleasant and exhausting hours, we’ve had together this year. It was a holiday, which made a great impression! We hope to see you all again!” Ine & Peter
