Four luxurious spas inside Corinthia’s five-star hotels around the world share their top tips on how best to begin the New Year to gain optimum health and fitness.

Corinthia Palace Hotel, Malta: a new fitness regimen that’s do-able

Just 30 minutes of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a great way to get your sweat on for the day, and the best part about it is that you don’t need to use any equipment so one can easily work out at home. In order to be effective, all you need to do is pick one heart-pumping exercise (jump lunges, jump squats, burps etc.) and do them for around 30-40 seconds with a 10-second rest in between. Do each exercise around 4-5 times and you’ll surely feel the burn the next day!

Corinthia Hotel Khartoum: try the active stress-busting breathing technique, Prananyama

Dr. Shaswata Chandra, the hotel’s Spa and Recreation Director, explains that

Pranayama is a practice that helps give energy to every cell of our body. “It is a Sanskrit word which means 'mastery of life force' or quite literally, to draw out life force or the breath that sustains our body,” he says. It is ideal for people with high blood pressure and overall it builds mental strength, increases concentration and memory and reduces stress.

Take a five-step approach:

  1. Sit in a cross-legged position on your yoga matt/ folded sheet
  2. Close your right nostril with your thumb
  3. Inhale from your left nostril. Remember to keep your back straight, body relaxed and the left hand on your left knee.
  4. Next, close your left nostril with your ring finger of your right hand, and then release breath from the right nostril
  5. Repeat the same technique for 15 minutes. Take a break every five minutes, if needed.

Corinthia Hotel Prague: fresh juices and 100km each month

Corinthia Hotel Prague’s Spa Manager Michael Hogg suggests the 30/100 Plan, which consists of the following nutritional and exercise regime:

1. The 30 refers to 30 fresh juices in one month. Having your own juicer at home will allow for easy-to-make juices, while recipes are at your disposal on various websites. Drinking fresh juice is found to elevate energy, improve skin and show gradual weight loss.

2. The 100 refers to 100km in one month. Whether it is walking, running or cycling, the goal is to reach the 100km at the end of the month. This is an important part of the new, healthier you.

The cardiovascular workouts combined with the consistent consumption of juice will undoubtedly start your 2018 correctly. An almost immediate increase in energy will be noticed, as well as a gradual loss in weight and an increase in esteem. I would recommend this programme to all. It is key to keep going with it and to make it part of your daily routine.

Corinthia Hotel London: the segment approach to success

ESPA Life at the flagship Corinthia Hotel London advises to focus on overall quality of life and to try the segment approach. Akin to taking baby steps, it ensures a more successful and lasting commitment to a new exercise regime. Kick off by identifying the key steps needed to reach a goal, and do just one of these steps daily until it is integrated fully into your daily routine. Only then can you move on to the next step. Remember to celebrate these smaller victories along the way.

If the rate discrepancy is solely due to exchange rate fluctuations, we reserve the right to deny the claim.
