 the lowdown 

We hope you're ready for an action-packed escape on this gorgeous Greek island which is home to the southernmost point in Europe. How exotic! 

Once you've landed in Crete, you'll join the Etu crew for this epic six-day fitness retreat guaranteed to make you feel fit, strong and revived. 

On this fitness holiday, you'll get to try out a little bit of everything from HIIT to circuit sessions and yoga. Whatever your fitness goals, we can guarantee that our expert coaches will help get you there.

Our awesome Etu coaches will be with you to put you through your paces, and you'll join the group on day one to enjoy this retreat as a team. This trip is perfect for solo travellers, as you're guaranteed to make some new mates!

It's not often you see four-star fitness retreats for these prices, and although we don't charge a fortune, we certainly don't scrimp on quality! The stunning four-star Iberostar Panorama & Mare is just 50 minutes from Heraklion Airport, and with views to die for, you'll quickly realise why we chose this beauty for our Greek escape!

 the workouts 

HIIT Athletic


HIIT is a 35-minute high-intensity interval training session designed to burn calories, reduce body fat, and tone. This science-proven workout improves cardiovascular fitness, speed, agility and challenges your fitness beyond normal physical limits.

Revive - Yoga-inspired workout


Revive is a class that anyone can get involved in regardless of whether you're a "yoga person". Each class starts with a dynamic warm-up before moving through some sun salutations to bring some heat to the body. We then practice strengthening postures for the lower body and balance work. We'll then move to the floor to work through some releasing twists before finishing with - you've got it - relaxation!



Made up of several stations, this high-intensity workout is a combination of exercises targeting your upper and lower body. You’ll improve your speed, stamina and strength with a fierce cardio kick.

Strength and conditioning


After a dynamic mobility warm-up, we'll spend 30 minutes practising some functional skills. This technique clinic will help you brush up on movements such as squats and push-ups. We'll focus on great posture and safe effective movements. This session ends with a short intense functional workout to kick your heart rate and leave you feeling fighting fit.


So this is what you can expect from your Etu retreat. As you can see, there’s plenty to keep you busy, active and feeling great!


All workouts are optional and included. You may want to get involved in everything, but we understand that everyone needs a bit of me-time too.
