"We went for a 5 day fitness camp. The personal trainers were excellent. We gained muscle and lost weight which was the goal. The food was delicious and the staff were all brilliant. We plan to return next year!"
"I had an amazing experience during my week at Epic Sana. I did a one week ultimate reshape program which included 3 hours of personal trainer a day and spa treatments in the afternoon. The personal trainers, Patricia and Andre were amazing, friendly and motivating. The spa staff and therapists were all extremely friendly and courteous. If the entire world were like the staff at epic sana... there would be peace on earth! The food was definitely a bonus. Everything was absolutely delicious. I will most definitely be returning and I definitely recommend this place and program!"
"My husband and I spent an incredible week working with Andre & Patricia and cannot recommend this program more. We have done a number of these wellness camps, but learned more from this one than any of the others. Whether it was new workout methodology, nutritional information or physiology both of us walked away with items we can immediately implement. Be ready to give it your all as these two trainers really put you through incredible workouts!"
"We spent a week enjoying the ultimate reshape designed by Andre and Patricia. Lost a few kilos but got our minds back on track which was the goal. Their pep talk keeps you going and they clearly love their job so they get you to go all the way and exactly where THEY wanted you...The tailor made food-program is delicious but stay far away from the heavenly smells of the buffet for the other guests! The team at the spa is also very competent and very very kind! They take away all your stress and do the utmost to accommodate massages into the program that even heighten the slimming effect of all the other components of the program... We need to put the Epic Sana at least once a year in our planning because we definitely want to climb those 144 steps to the gorgeous beach a couple of more times. Thanks to all over there and see you soon!"
