Well, as busy as I try to make my life I must apologize for not haven written this review earlier.
I was lucky enough to spend three weeks with the fun loving, super fit, Crew of eXtreme in December of last year. I was immediately welcomed by the friendly staff of fitness junkies. Seriously, these people offer to those whom choose to join them what I could only imagine to be similar to a fix of something elicit craved by your well being.
The grounds on where the hotel has been grown shows their love of nature and the bountifulness she can provide if cared for. They are developing an aquaponics garden to add to their already organically grown foods which they serve in the delicious juice bar/restaurant on site. The staff of which are always smiling and willing to help you combine the perfect blend of fruit or vegetables to come up with the unique flavour smoothie you are craving that day. (even if your Spanish is rubbish as mine)
The seaside yoga, weather be early morning or candlelit evening, is a rewarding prize of balance and focus. The yogis help what is already one the most beautiful practices I have ever had the pleasure of sharing, into a place to experience inner peace. With the braking waves and horses being run up the beach there is a fullness to the senses.
Their high flying misfits of physique bring out the child in everyone who wants to have a go on the high trapeze. Normally it is the local kids of the island who are the ones to encourage everyone else to try the challenge by their screams of enjoyment, rewarding catches, and fun filled misses.
For me the most rewarding experience, besides the ping pong, would have to be the high intensity Cross Fit gym run by their head trainer Zach. Zach and his Team find a way to bring out the most in you that you have, in the safest way possible. They push you to your limit, at the same time allowing yourself to go that extra step for them. These guys/girls now their stuff, a combination of life long commitments, to the ones whoms inner athlete came out on a later path, they teach as much as they to train. Simply said; if you want to know what you are capable of achieving, no matter what level you are at now, they will bring it out. I highly recommend one of Zach's very addictive post workout smoothies to enrich your already heightened sense of fit.
All this combined with some amazing offsite activities (which they happily help organize) make this to be my all time favourite getaways I have ever experienced.
Cant wait until my next visit.
Thanks again Robbie and everyone at eXtreme.
