The Growing Wellness Holiday Demand for Health-Conscious Men

  • Written by Raymond Viola

The 10th to the 16th of June marks Men’s Health Week, so whether you’re travelling alone, looking for some peace and quiet, or if you’ve got a fitness boot-camp in mind, Health and Fitness Travel, the wellness holiday specialists has you covered.

 

What better time to take care of the men in your life, whether that’s yourself, your partner or a family member. There’s a common association drawn between wellness holidays and girly getaways but looking good and feeling great is not exclusive to women; taking a break from an overworked, stressful life is of incredible importance to men’s health in the 21st Century!

 

The suicide rate for men in Australia is frighteningly high, as many men suffer in silence. These health retreats will have you hitting the waves, getting more mindful, sweating it out and fighting the sedentary lifestyle that comes with an office job. From pulse-raising boot camp fitness in Portugal to holistic weight loss in India, these healthy escapes are the perfect gift for men ready to make a positive change.

 

Paul Joseph, co-founder of Health and Fitness Travel, says “Since 2010 we have seen a 42% increase in men booking wellness holidays. Men investing in their well-being and appearance is now so normal; many are living with extreme unprecedented stress due to growing work demands, and we have seen a growing interest from men towards self-care and health awareness. Most retreats and spas are gender neutral and cater equally to both sexes.”

 

Wellness holidays aren’t just for the ladies, so as one would take in their car for a MOT, visit a highly trained professional in an inviting environment and check in to check out. Discover 8 of the best wellness retreats for the health-conscious man:
