Imagine going on a vacation where you dine on gourmet cuisine daily, and yet you return home in better condition than you started; where you enjoy surroundings that are also immaculately clean and private - an ideal risk-free environment far from the crowds. Welcome to private crewed yacht charters, where your health and safety blend seamlessly with decadence and luxury.
Onboard modern charter mega yachts It is easy to manage the arrivals and departures of guests and crew, and it is a straightforward matter to control the numbers of any visitors or other personnel. Establishing measures to mitigate the threat of the transmission of any virus is a reasonably simple exercise in comparison to other holiday alternatives including five-star hotels, cruises or resorts.
And the decision to go ashore or not is totally up to you. There are so many things for you to enjoy just staying onboard whether at anchor or cruising past beautiful islands and stunning scenery.
Many luxury superyachts are equipped with the latest state-of-the-art fitness equipment, often with dedicated gym areas. Whether you want to tone your physique, flatten your stomach, detox your system or simply rejuvenate your body and soul, there's nowhere better than a luxury charter offering you whatever you want or need.
There are three important points to weigh up when considering a private crewed yacht charter with fitness in mind: facilities, experience and cuisine.
Your charter broker at Luxury Charter Group can advise you on what various yachts have aboard for your fitness training.
If you're already familiar with exercise equipment, such as treadmills, ellipticals, stationary bikes, or stair climbers, you should be able to continue your existing fitness program. Many superyachts have a personal trainer aboard, who can create the perfect program to fit your needs and your time aboard.
Each charter yacht has different types of equipment, so work with your charter broker at Luxury Charter Group to select the luxury yacht that best suits your needs. Your Captain will endeavour to source specific equipment requests in advance of your charter. Consider where the gym is located on the yacht, too. Many are placed in glass-enclosed or waterfront areas so you can enjoy spectacular views while "pumping iron."
Each boat will have different levels of equipment, so work with your charter broker at Luxury Charter Group to pick just the right one. Many crew members have talents and skills in addition to their regular shipboard responsibilities, and yachts will accordingly offer additional services which might include massage, personal training, yoga, or Pilates. Be clear about your expectations and make sure you state them on your Guest Preference Form. Your charter broker can provide the Crew Profile.
Cuisine is the fuel that powers your fitness program, and luxury sailing and motor yacht chefs are fully prepared to provide gourmet meals to meet individual requirements and that somehow manage to be healthy as well. Choose macrobiotic, gluten-free, dairy-free, alkaline, vegan, or any of the trendy diets from the Sirtfood Diet to Paleo, and your chef will prepare and serve it with five-star élan.
A luxury yacht is perfect for your fitness program, because you're floating in one of Mother Nature's best tools for health and fitness. Swimming daily, whether you're snorkelling, kite surfing, diving or just paddling around is a total-body workout that tones your arms and back, burns calories like crazy, is terrific for your cardio, and revs up your metabolism.
Some luxury charter mega yachts even have lap pools, with moving water so you can swim while remaining stationary, but an hour of snorkelling over a coral reef will do wonders for your body – and your spirit to boot.
While they call them "water toys," most yachts carry kayaks or stand-up paddle boards, and both are more than just fun: they're excellent exercise as well. Paddle around a beautiful anchorage – exploring and exercising – while your crew checks up on you in the tender, bringing you bottled water and encouragement as needed.
Your luxury charter also takes you to destinations where you can expand your fitness program ashore with bicycling, jogging, hiking, beach sports like volleyball, or just power-walking on beautiful beaches.
Sorry, but strolling the chic waterfront boutiques doesn't count as fitness training!
Don't forget the wonderful onshore spas in many charter destinations, either, from the Cheval Blanc Spa on St. Barts to the Hotel Cap Eden Roc in France. Your captain can arrange reservations and help you sort through their menu of choices.
When choosing a charter yacht, you should also consider the "après-workout" facilities. Spend an hour exercising and there's nothing better than a steam shower right in your own master suite, or perhaps a sauna. How about a hot stone or deep tissue massage stretched out on a table covered with thick Turkish towels? And then later, perhaps under the stars, a soak in a warm whirlpool spa and have a flute of icy champagne to celebrate your health.
The fitness choices now available to the charterers of luxury yachts are almost endless, with such unusual offerings as acupuncture and yoga, and a small industry has sprung up to offer fitness programs specifically for guests on mega yachts.
For an additional cost you can have your own personal trainer on board to tailor your program or plan a week-long retreat or, if there is an extra guest cabin, you can bring your own trainer.
Whatever you need, from toning up to losing a few pounds, the team at Luxury Charter Group will help you to select the perfect crewed charter yacht for your needs in the destination of your dreams. Just be prepared to explain to your friends how you achieved the miracle of losing weight on such a decadent vacation.
