Esquire (Singapore) - - Special Feature - MaHB / Health by Tom Mack­lin

Ev­ery­one wants to re­lax, de-stress and rein­vig­o­rate when on hol­i­day. A trend for calmer breaks fo­cus­ing on fit­ness and well­be­ing has emerged—be­spoke al­ter­na­tives to beach hol­i­days or city breaks, with ben­e­fits to help achieve your phys­i­cal and men­tal peak. Long-term pay­backs in­clude greater un­der­stand­ing of your body, more eas­ily achieved fit­ness goals and more ef­fi­cient work per­for­mance. If you’re con­tem­plat­ing a health­ier hol­i­day this year, Esquire has cho­sen four re­treats to have on your radar.

3. Body aware­ness

Esquire’s PT Harry Jame­son (right) leads fit­ness ex­perts and medics to help you un­der­stand your body. To avoid in­jury and max­imise re­sults, a clin­i­cal anal­y­sis by Vi­avi of Har­ley Street es­tab­lishes your ca­pa­bil­i­ties, food tol­er­ances and stress lev­els. Then your three-step pro­gramme takes place over a week in Dubai (with five weeks’ UK af­ter­care). SGD17,200*.

2. Out­door ad­ven­tures

Need to es­cape the ur­ban jun­gle and re­con­nect with your prim­i­tive side? Asanox of­fers mil­i­tarystyle ex­pe­di­tions amid stun­ning ru­ral land­scapes in Scot­land, Wales and France to rein­vig­o­rate the senses, ac­quire knowl­edge and test phys­i­cal and men­tal ca­pa­bil­i­ties. Whether climb­ing Ben Nevis, learn­ing sur­vival skills or tak­ing on the orig­i­nal WWII com­mando/spe­cial forces train­ing ground, you’ll build stamina, con­cen­tra­tion power, and be re­warded with group bond­ing events each evening. From SGD1,245*
