Fitness freaks can have a good time unwinding themselves in boot camps around the world. And even if you’re not very exercise-oriented, still you can have the advantage of burning the extra fat put on by eating out on holidays. Here is an overview of some of the boot camps from around the world that are worth checking out on your 2011 holiday break.

France
There is a luxury boot camp near Cahors in southern France which features stay in a manor house, one-hour massage session every day, nice vegan food and wine. This is Camp Biche and one gets to lose around 4.25 percent of your body fat on an average. The enjoyment factor continues with six classes each of Pilates and yoga along with daily intensive abs classes, circuit training and hiking tours. So pack your bags and head off to France for a fitness holiday in 2011.

USA
Rancho Cortez is a cowboy boot camp in Texas that has for its fitness slogan – “giddy up off your butt”! Going by the common-sense fact that there are no fat cowboys, the ranch will get you into shape the hard way. An hour’s drive from San Antonio, the ranch arranges horse-riding sessions on its 5,500 acres land along with kickboxing, hiking, Pilates, yoga and water aerobics. It is held that the 30-day fat farm challenge works wonders – leading to a loss of up to 10 percent of body weight. Texas could well be a good enough holiday destination for your USA trip in 2011. 

Portugal
The New You Boot Camp has separate male and female camps, mixed camps, special bridal camps and weekend camps. In 2011, the boot camp is opening up one near the fishing village Carvoeiro in Portugal. Back home in the UK, the camp locations are Brecon Beacons, Cornwall and Suffolk. The Brecon Beacons one offers military techniques and has a bunkhouse as accommodation. However, the camp in Portugal us a boutique resort in the Algarve.

Scotland
As a long weekend holiday from the UK, the Borders boot camp in Scotland offers health & fitness and weight loss regimes in groups of eight. The camp is fun yet effective with a success story running the rounds that someone lost one stone in just five days! For 2011 holidays to Scotland, this camp features games, assault courses and cycling as its main activities.

Tuscany
The luxury programme of the Fit Boot Camp in Tuscany lets one burn out the stubborn fat while soaking in the beautiful sceneries around. The stone villa overlooks the hills to Castiglione del Lago and offers an amazing fitness regime that consists of a fruit smoothie as the starter to the day followed by cardio in the sun, countryside romp, pool activities and circuit training. In the afternoons, one is left free to roam around Lucca and Pisa.
