A Fitness Explosion Hits Bocas del Toro

A Fitness Explosion Hits Bocas del Toro

March 18, 2016

It is something that is on nearly everybody’s mind, a healthy lifestyle. There are many views and thoughts on how a person can achieve a healthy life: different ways to eat, different workout routines, but all agree that physical activity in one way or another is essential to keep the body in good shape. It is always a challenge for people who have set a healthful routine to maintain the flow while on holiday. Now your visit to Bocas del Toro, Panama can include fiestas and exercising, for a beautiful balance!

The laid back vibe and spectacular surroundings have made Bocas del Toro home to many yogis for some years now. In fact at this moment you can find so much yoga right here on the archipelago. There are private classes, yoga retreats, and scheduled classes open to the public. But, its not just yoga anymore.

In the recent months, Bocas has seen the opening of two very different gyms. Each one has its own niche in fitness.  One gym has great strength training equipment, certified personal trainers on staff, and offers a variety of group classes, including; kickboxing, pilates, strength and resistance training, and boot camp. The other gym specializes in martial arts, more specifically Jiu-Jitsu, and offers Muay Thai, body conditioning and stretching classes. And the kids can join in on the fun with specialized classes for young people at both gyms.

You can also choose from something out in the fresh air with water aerobics in the gorgeous turquoise Caribbean Sea, and sometimes you can find a Zumba class or Boot Camp class right on the beach. In fact Zumba is really big on the island, and for good reason, it incorporates the local music and dancing style right into the class, and it is so much fun, dancing, sweating, detoxing and smiling the whole time.

Bocas is proof that you can go out and have a great time, letting the rhythm of island carry you away at night, partying until they turn the lights on, and still treat your body right with yummy natural foods and cleansing exercise. Bocas is Balanced!
