Exercises for slimming and a firm – toned bod

The weight loss exercises are tailored for the problem areas where our body usually stores fat: the waist, thighs, hips, stomach and arms. Moreover, the exercises have toning and health stimulating effects.

We use different kinds of exercise equipment such as silicon balls and weights etc.

The exercises are approved by a doctor and tailored to the group’s abilities.

Exercises are undertaken with the guidance of experienced sports instructors.

Health treks with a guide

The treks take place every day.

The trek routes take into consideration individual abilities within the group. The distance is around 15 kilometers. The average length of a trek is about 3 hours.

Dancing and Music

Every night we have a dance party.

You will have the unique opportunity to learn the vigorous and joyful Bulgarian folk dances to remember old and forgotten steps.

With the rhythm of the joyful and cheerful music we can melt the extra weight away easily.

Medical ControlЛ

You will go through two comprehensive medical surveys – one on your arrival at the weight loss center and one after you have completed the program.

We don’t have an physician constantly on site but, in a case of emergency, we will provide one. We have a blood pressure monitor you can have access to at any time.

Often overweight people suffer from heart, breathing, mobility and other problems. Our doctor will track your physical health during the program. It is often the case that, by the end of the program, people’s complaints of shortness of breath and joint and back pain fade away or even disappear.
