 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 

Workout Away HIIT™


Workout Away HIIT is a 30-minute High-Intensity Interval Training session designed to burn calories, reduce body fat and tone. HIIT is a science-proven method which improves cardiovascular fitness, speed and agility, and challenges performance beyond normal physical limits.

Workout Away Revive™ - Yoga Inspired Stretching Class


Revive is our signature yoga-inspired stretching class that anyone can do. You don't have to be a traditional yogi to fall in love with this restorative session.

You'll practice energising sun salutations to develop full-body strength and flexibility. You'll challenge balance and coordination with powerful standing stretches and move through seated twists to alleviate stress and restore energy levels.

Workout Away Rivals™


Rivals is our brand new format for 2023. We've taken all the best bits from circuit, strength and functional training-based classes and created a team-based session where healthy competition drives sports and strength performance.

Workout Away Tricore™


Our brand new, innovative triset workout meticulously crafted to fortify the core - your body's powerhouse!


Workout Away Tricore zeroes in on three main rounds of work to strengthen the Glutes, Posterior Chain, and Abdominals.


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.
