From exercise to overnight spas, follow Holly Willoughby's health and beauty regime
8th December 2018

The presenter knows how to look after herself and the first thing she did in Oz is head to a spa for a massage treatment.

Today we've looked at the exercise routine that helps keep her in top shape and looked at overnight spas in the UK….

Kickboxing

Bodycombat classes combine influences from boxing, karate, taekwondo and tai chi – similar to kickboxing.

Great for burning fat, toning muscles and heart health.

I gave it a go at Nuffield Health and the 55 minutes classes are tough – you punch, jab and do leg kicks in time to music.

You feel as though you've really done a good workout.

You can try one by going to the Nuffield website and downloading a FREE one-day pass.

Pilates

Research by Decathlon recently showed that Pilates and yoga are the fourth favourite exercise for women after swimming, the gym and cycling.

It even beats running because it gives you long, lean muscles and strength in your core to help prevent back injuries.

All you need to get started is an online video or local class and an extra thick mat as you'll need to roll on your spine.

Decathlon do an extra thick one with a spongy texture that costs just £17.99.

 

Quinoa

Holly says she loves quinoa.

This protein rich seed contains all nine essential amino acids and she uses quinoa flakes – which can be used a bit like porridge oats – to make granola with dates.

Homespun Foods have just launched Quinoa Crunch made with buckwheat flakes, coats, seeds, coconut and goji berries.

Perfect as a cereal or yoghurt topper.  Lovely crunch.

£4.99 for 275g box with Ocado

Midlands

This country spa retreat in Staffordshire boasts an outdoor heated vitality pool, steam and sauna plus indoor hydrotherapy suite.

The package includes a luxury overnight stay with spa access, dinner and breakfast as well as a hot stone massage with facial – the perfect treatment duo, left feeling completely relaxed and my skin rejuvenated.

Dinner in their award-winning restaurant was great, a two course meal with loads of tasty options.

Would definitely recommend.

From £295. See Moddershalloaks.com.

South

A one night getaway in a double room with a 25 minute facial and Thalasso therapy session included.

You also get unlimited access to the spa facilities which include a swimming pool, sauna, steam room, jacuzzi, and access to all their fitness classes.

Three course dinner as well as buffet breakfast and lunch the following day are also included in the deal.

Henlow is currently undergoing renovation but Buyagift have deals available at three other Champneys locations as well as hundreds of other spa breaks nationwide.

£300 via buyagift.co.uk.

North

This might be the cheapest but this eco-friendly spa is brilliant, with fantastic facilities – a gym, pool, steam room, aromatherapy room, foot spas, ice room, outdoor Jacuzzi, relaxation room and a warm Yorkshire welcome from all the staff.

There is an amazing bar where you can have a mocktail (or cocktail!) and the rooms are mini apartments.

For £179 you get a welcome drink, breakfast in your room and a really tasty lunch and dinner.

The price includes a 55 treatment.

I had a first class Decleor massage. Brilliant place to relax – and have a fun getaway.

£179 via Titanicspa.com.
