5 Star Fitness

Most brides look to shed a few pounds and want to shape up for their big day, but with the cold weather we have had of late you could easily be forgiven in not wanting to lace up the trainers and head out for a run!


With the Muckross Park Hotel in Killarney’s new Bridal Bootcamp, they claim you can drop a dress size in 3 days and lose up to 10lbs!!  This specially designed package for Brides-to-Be, puts you through an intesive regime of exercise, toning and ‘sculpting’ your body along with master classes from top chefs on food and nutrition issues as well as pamper sessions to get you plucked and preened for your walk down the aisle.

It doesn’t come cheap, with the Gold Package coming in at €895.00 but for 4 nights luxury 5 star treatment and a team of experts on hand to give you a complete fitmess, wellness and beauty assessment and the promise to drop a dress size during the program then it would have to be considered good value for the determined bride!

The next Bootcamp Program kicks off on the 22nd March and the 19th April, and will be full of like-minded brides all on a mission!  If you like, you can bring along your friend or bridesmaid for a discounted rate, but it sounds like a great bride-bonding experience and after spending 3 days sweating it out together (in the gym AND the sauna!) I’m sure you will come away with new friends.
