On holiday, fitness can take a back seat. With delicious food readily available, combined with the constant appeal of the sun-lounger, exercise is rarely high up on the holiday agenda. Princesa Yaiza Suite Hotel Resort in Lanzarote, a Spanish island, of the autonomous Canary Islands, has come up with innovative and exciting new fitness classes with unusual activities including paleotraining.

What better place to hone your inner strength and get fit in the sun then than at this beautiful resort!?


Paleotraining is the first training system based entirely on daily life and basic human movements. The exercises are inspired by the primitive actions of our oldest ancestors. Replicating the most basic movements made to survive, such as jumping, pushing, climbing and enable participants to recover and develop the original human physical capabilities that are often disregarded today. A session involves quick bursts of intense and varied training, accompanied by a specific nutritional plan.

Classes are available in the hotel’s state-of-the-art gym to all guests from 16 years upwards (with special classes for guests between the ages of 12 and 16). Guests  can also participate in a paleo run, and what’s more, those keen to go the extra mile can do so with their own personal trainer. These expert individuals offer tailored and personalised advice relating to fitness plan, nutrition (including a food plan, should you wish). and ultimately how to get the most out of training whilst at the hotel. Those keen to continue their fitness programme and/or healthy regime once home can take advantage of the online coaching with weekly feedback.

“Strong not skinny!” The Princesa YAIZA mantra!
