For Celeb Spot­ters The Body Camp, IBIZA

If your In­sta feed looks any­thing like ours, sum­mer saw an in­flux of celebrity brag­gers shar­ing pho­tos of their time at The Body Camp. It’s not a tra­di­tional boot­camp – in­stead, this Ibiza hide­away is as much about work­ing your mind as it is your body. Sunset walks, beach runs, yoga and HIIT classes are just some of the ac­tiv­i­ties avail­able along­side a 90 per cent plant-based diet. DW though, al­mond-based av­o­cado piz­zas to­tally ex­ist here. Who’s been? Ev­ery­one! Lisa Snow­don, Millie Mack­in­tosh, Hugo Tay­lor, Caro­line Flack, Rosie Fortes­cue and Made­line Shaw. The small print: Price for seven days all-in­clu­sive range from £1,315 to £3,890. Visit the­body­camp.com

For Wannabe A-listers The ashram, Cal­abasas, la

Nes­tled in the Santa Mon­ica moun­tains (you’re sold al­ready, aren’t you?), guests at The Ashram un­dergo daily 16-mile hikes and twice-a-day yoga classes, all while main­tain­ing a strict 1,000 calo­rie-a-day veg­e­tar­ian diet. This, they claim, can help you lose be­tween 5 and 10lb in a week, eas­ily. Stay here and you could even end up sleep­ing in the same bed as some of Tin­sel­town’s big­gest names. Just not ac­tu­ally with them, obvs... Who’s been? Gwyneth Pal­trow, Cather­ine Zeta Jones, Oprah Win­frey, Cindy Craw­ford, Colin Far­rell, Renée Zell­weger, Queen Lat­i­fah.
