The Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire, set within 500 acres
of picturesque English countryside, is inviting guests
to escape their traditional exercise routines, push boundaries
and discover a new them.
“The Escape will take its passengers
way past their comfort zone and force them into the unknown,” said
program instructor and ex-US military
soldier, Joshua Blackmer.
On day one, guests are issued with their personalised Escape
kit, as all of their mobile devices are locked away and they meet
their team of fitness professionals. Their orientation will then
commence with a tour across the Estate via Landrover, mountain
bikes and on foot, to familiarise them with the local terrain,
before the day ends with an outdoor meditation session.
Day two will start with a bright-and-early
wakeup call and two extreme exercise classes, pushing participants
to their fitness limits. Ready for refuelling, they will then have
breakfast and a nutrition masterclass led by an expert
nutritionist, before launching into the boot camp from US military
trained, Joshua Blackmer. Only once the boot camp is completed and
they have dived into an invigorating ice bath will they be able to
enjoy a tailored treatment in the spa. The day is then finished
with yoga and stretching.
Day three begins with a specially crafted
morning Tai Chi session followed by an exhilarating highwire adventure
and finally an indulgent spa treatment.
“The purpose of our boot camp is
to push individuals outside of their comfort zones, both mentally
and physically. When training in the army, I learned that when put
in the right environment there are no limits on what you can
achieve. With The Escape we will give you a foundation of
knowledge concerning health, training and nutrition and something completely outside the normal routine of the gym or studio,”
The Escape will take place 1-3 April
and 14-16 June 2019, and will include up
to 12 hours of training, 3 hours of spa treatments, breakfasts,
healthy lunches and dinners, use of the spa facilities and two
The Escape is priced at GBP 1,650 per
person (April) and GBP 1,850 (June) (based on single occupancy).
