Last year our SISter in Wellness Neel visited Longevity Cegonha Country Club in Algarve Portugal, and she was impressed as it is a true wellness paradise. In her post, she explained that they offer Detox, weight loss, Yoga, Fitness or simply relaxing programs.
Well, this year Femke and I went there to test their programs, in this post we will tell you how it went and as a picture is worth a thousand words, I will be describing our experience in images. We chose a detox program based on a diet based of juices, smoothies and detoxifying and anti-inflammatory soups.
A DETOX experience at Longevity Cegonha Country Club
To begin with, and to ensure a safe process we had a consultation with the resident nutritionist, during which she laid the foundations of what each of us individually needs as our bodies and needs are completely different. In conclusion, I must stop eating “cakes” and Femke could do with eating some more! But not during this stay, no cake for anyone, just detoxifying and anti-inflammatory diet.
An energetic shot full of vitamins to wake up and a little later a huge smoothie with a mixture of fruit, a little maca and some other nutritional secret for breakfast.
If you don’t feel like doing a detox diet you can enjoy the Wellness breakfast, see how delicious it looks…
One-hour group tour around the hotel with the super energetic teacher Veronica to warm up, and meet up with some SIS clients!
After warming up with the walk we get activated with a session of Burn it and Pilates, These activities are part of the daily program of activities and are open to all guests!
An educational TRX session with the personal trainer Ricardo, hard but fun!
A pitstop. We had the possibility to continue with a liquid diet with juices or supplement it with a solid diet, here are some examples
Some down time to relax in our room to regain strength and continue with a draining massage and body scrub, mmmm….
And then? Then pool time to continue relaxing!
And we even had time to experiment with some curious activities and workshops of the daily program open to all guests, super fun!!!
Flotation session, a picture is worth a thousand words …
And we end the day with a walk along the beautiful and endless Falésia Beach before dinner
And some days we even had time to do some yoga on our own, awesome…
In conclusion, after 3 active days, we arrive home with new sense of vitality and lightness, a couple of kilos less and the desire to try another program at Longevity Cegonha Country Club.
Can you see yourself here?? Check out the programs, and if you don’t find the program that fits you, write to us and we will create one just for you.
