The concept of fitness/healthy living holidays is easy, but the end result can often feel quite fabricated and unauthentic. What the guys at Training Paradise have done is combine the very best of all the successful elements of a wellbeing holiday (the location, the gym, the rooms, the food, the staff), and deliver them to you in the most personal and welcoming way. Having myself trained at various centres and locations around the world, I can say that Training Paradise is the gold star in its field. From the moment you wake up in the morning, to when you fall asleep at night, the entire day feels like it has been good for you in some way. Whether it's the incredibly tasty, healthy and plentiful food, or the hours you can spend in the on site gym, the relaxation time by the stunning swimming pool or the peaceful nature of the villa - no hour here is wasted as either your body is getting a work our or your mind is getting a much needed break. From a physical training perspective (which was my reason for visiting), Training Paradise is set up perfectly. The gym is better than any you'll find back home, and not because it's full of expensive equipment, but because it is a space in which you WANT to train. I found myself looking forward to the planned training sessions with Serge, and often spent extra hours in the fitness studio listening to great music and genuinely seeing the difference in my training day to day. I was keen to focus on 2 elements; increasing my strength and adapting my aerobic threshold, 2 elements that were well tracked by Serge and myself using HR zones and measuring output. And of course all training needs to be accompanied by recovery; combining food and rest to optimise your training efforts. This is where Kathleen came into her own, serving up food that not only tasted great, but that fitted perfectly into the plan developed by Serge. By measuring macros and placing emphasis on controlled calorie intake, the meals became a key part of the training. Understanding what you are eating and why is essential, regardless of your end goal (be it weight loss, weight gain, strength). Serge's classroom lessons on nutrition and diet were simply wonderful, and should be taught to anyone who is interested in understanding food and debunking all the myths around diet culture. The villa is a very peaceful space, the pool simply adds to the feel and offers a welcome respite from the daily sun. But if you are seeking a change in environment, everything is within walking distance. I would often go for further, lengthy walks of 5-8km to take in the stunning coastline of Phuket, a walk up to the Giant Buddah also helps to add to the training and gives you some great views. Like many who visit Training Paradise, I was a solo traveller. By the end of my stay, not only had I exceeded my training goals, I had made 2 new great friends in Serge and Kathleen, who I look forward to seeing again very soon. Merci guys :)

I attended training Paradise to experience Thailand for the first time and incorporate a fitness aspect to m On arrival I found 'The family' very welcoming. I received a tour of the lovely villa and was introduced to the staff and occupants. On my first day a brief was given on my week which allowed me to plan my stay according to my needs and expectations. As a Muslim, I communicated my dietery requirements and prayer timings, this was quickly taken into consideration and my programme and food was tailored to my needs, this made my stay extremely comfortable. During my stay I always found the food to be enjoyable and 'new', this was a new experience for me and has allowed me to enjoy some amazing dishes (thank you to the team). One of the main reasons I chose Training Paradise was for the daily activities on-site. Serge provided a variety of classes throughout the day starting at 8am before breakfast (my choice) with a high intensity weights class or a relaxing yoga class, finishing at 9pm with a relaxing in house massage (thank you TukTuk) I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff at Training Paradise especially Kathleen, Serge and Mum... Thank you to mum for the lovely walk after the boat ride on the deserted Island and the collection of the coral and shells, my son absolutely loved them x.. I would like to wish you all the best for the future... Shabir

Honestly I didn't know what to expect when we first booked this kind of holiday, but straight away when we arrived we felt very welcomed and was amazing, the villa with pool, weather and out hosts, Serge, Kathleen and Fin, you guys done amazing all the way from the workouts and food. The workouts were fun and challenging, Fin kicked our butts so thanks for that. Kathleen and the girls with their amazing food all the way from breakfast to the Thai food for dinner(already missing it). Even though I was on a calorie deficit I didn't feel hungry and everything is planed out for you. If you get a chance to go please do, it will help with clearing your mind and body with help from professionals like Serge, Kathleen and Fin. Thank you for having us and we will differently come back for a 2nd round.

The welcome I received at Training Paradise was every bit as good as I anticipated, and the nutritional advice and training insights were as well-researched and explained by Serge as his scientific and evidence-based credentials suggested they would be. This is the ideal place to discover why you actually want to do more exercise and get stronger as the main route to losing weight - not the other way round. Focusing on your health and overall well-being are the keys to all the rest! Kathleen's amazing recipes, and our bespoke Thai dinners each evening also demonstrated just how good - and flexible - healthy eating can be once you accept the inevitable formula that what you consume has to be used as energy, disposed of as waste, or stored as fat. 'Voila!' as Serge might say: so simple, but yet so easy to kid yourself that some other 'magic formula' exists. I never once felt that I was missing anything, but rather learning something new every day: over-coming a fear of gyms and HIIT exercises along with discovering new therapies, Muay Thai boxing and different forms of yoga, along with relaxing in the private pool. The importance of lifting weights/engaging in weight resistant exercises to overall health is nevertheless my biggest take-away from the week, which would not have been possible had the whole programme not been so individually tailored to each guest. And privileged guests we were! The atmosphere of the villa is that of an exclusive and nurturing family retreat, complete with lovely outings, and entirely conducive to reflecting on changing the way you live: I have never stayed in a place, for example, where I could relax so easily and (almost literally!) crawl back to my room to sleep after having one of Nuk-Nuk's amazing massages. The caring approach of all the staff, but above all the very personal touches of Serge and Kathleen make this experience both unique and unforgettable on many levels - and very hard to leave!

Training Paradise is in a beautiful villa with pool and gym, run by fabulously warm and friendly Serge and Kathleen who nourished me back to feeling balanced and energetic. With personalised nutrition advice, calorie-counted delicious meals, individual exercise regimes (kindly encouraging me to push myself and try weights as well as HIT workouts), there was so much to do as well as plenty of time to chill. It was a holistic experience, and I had fabulous advice from a life-coach, an intense experience with a sound/breathing therapist, and great massages from NukNuk in a beautiful room about 8 feet from my bedroom, which was brilliant for enhancing a good night's sleep. We had some great trips (long-boat island hopping, jungle trek to a Big Buddha, and a walk to the night market). But the best thing was being with such lovely people who worked so hard to make me feel ready to tackle real life feeling stronger and determined to make exercise and better diet a bigger part of my life. Well worth the money for a really personal experience.
