Trying to kick off an exercise routine and totally relax for a week after leaving a stressful job, I signed up for Bikini Bootcamp very last minute. I was pleasantly surprised...the food was delicious, the beach absolutely incredible (I have been all over the Carribbean, Asia, Central America and this is by far the most beautiful), the staff (instructors, cooks, etc) incredibly friendly. It was just enough exercise...a 1 hour walk on the beach in the morning (which at first I was dreading, then started to love), 1 hour of strength training, 1 hour of yoga and something else (2 hour bike ride or tribal dancing). My only problem with the exercise was yoga (which I never like) and the instructor Scarlett who was a bit scary. She definitely knows her stuff but is a bit intimidating to the beginner. Beauty of Amansala...you are not overly pressured to do anything. If you need to skip yoga, you definitely can do it. The other instructors were great, very helpful...and very motivating. I can't say enough about the location and we had plenty of time off to lay in the sun. I was alone and most of the people there were also solo so it was very easy to find friends to hang out with. I would definitely recommend this to everyone...guys and girls. Only caveat...if you are SUPER HARD CORE and looking for a TRUE bootcamp, you may be a tad disappointed. You exercise tons, probably lose 3-4lbs but it is not over the top hard.
