Raw Juice Camp: Raw Vegan Bootcamps, Portugal
2017 Camps: Sept 23rd – 30th, Sept 30th – October 7th
Be the best YOU possible
Join me in the Algarve for my seasonal bootcamps: as I try my best to get fit too. This is an incredible beach side experience that will quite literally take your breath away. Set in the beachy hills of Portugal’s gorgeous Vale do Lobo with it’s green and lush landscapes.
‘I created Raw Juice Camp so I could have a place to go where I could try my best to get fit and eat the foods that I want to eat!’
‘I couldn’t find a bootcamp that catered to my needs: I want to lose weight, I don’t want to eat meat, I don’t want to train in the mud and the cold and I want to eat a nutritionally vibrant healing diet: high in raw foods. I want a bit of ‘zen’ thrown in the mix too. I want to stay somewhere warm and cosy and have the luxury of a hot shower and a pool to relax in. I want great accommodation. I want a holiday. I want it all but I couldn’t find it anywhere else. So I created my own bootcamp: Raw Juice Camp is my bootcamp retreat and it works beautifully.’
When I asked for green smoothies at regular bootcamps I got laughed at. When I craved chia pudding for energy, living vegan milks for sustenance and green juices following my workouts for the ultimate recovery: few people really understood what I was talking about. When I came in from the runs (always last) the rest of the group were on to their second or third workout. No-one waited for me. I felt crap. So I set the experience up for myself. So no-one was going to laugh at my muffin-top, my terribly slow running, my craving for green smoothies, my breathless attempts at exploring my fitness or my desperate attempts to yogi myself anymore.’ Stephanie
We are the FIRST raw vegan bootcamp that combines a loving, holistic approach with military style fitness. And it really works.
This is no ordinary bootcamp.
Being fit and bendy is no entry qualification here. In fact we encourage those with a range of fitness levels. Haven’t seen your toes in years? Welcome. Preparing for your next marathon? No problem. We encourage inclusivity and our training style means that we ALL finish the program together. We adopt the mantra of Ohana – we operate as a family, while everyone gets pushed to their own performance limits – no-one gets left behind. Ever.
My bootcamp helps you to be the best you possible.
Picture yourself training with the best and returning home full of raw vitality, glowing, lighter, brighter and fitter than you have felt and looked in years.
Picture yourself exploring raw foods while staying in a wonderful villa in the sunshine of Portugal, safe in the knowledge that your fitness is in the hands of experts as they challenge you to move towards your own personal goals.
This is no ordinary retreat.
Picture yourself lying on a sun lounger, drinking freshly squeezed juices and having all your raw food meals prepared for you while someone else also worries about your training plan.
Have an incredible Thai Massage. Indulge in an Indian Head Massage. Stretch out with beautiful yoga.
Run on the beach. Rest by the pool. Dine in style. Discover clean eating and learn how to prepare some of the finest raw foods dishes available.
We will be practicing yoga for 1-2 hours each day in a variety of styles. Classes are open to all-levels from beginners to experienced practitioners. Guests find the yoga essential in waking the body and stretching out tired muscles.
Everyone worries about ‘the bootcamp bit’. You needn’t. We don’t wake you up with buckets of cold water. We don’t do midnight marches or painful drills. It’s YOUR holiday! We don’t force you to do anything that you are not capable of.
We hope to inspire you to push your physical limits.
Our trainers are highly experienced bootcamp leaders who care about your fitness goals. Some people come to bootcamp because they’ve never done a sit up before. Some people come because they do 100 sit ups a day and want to excel their performance. All the training is tailored around YOU. So that YOU can be better than who you were yesterday. So that YOU can be the best YOU possible.
‘As a bootcamp owner (and the camp chef!) I try to throw myself into as much as possible. I usually come in last on all the runs, all the workouts and all the walks. Am I embarrassed? No. Because I am not sat at home doing nothing. I am doing it. I am pushing myself. And you can be too.’ Stephanie
Not everyone comes to lose weight. Most people want to lose a few pounds. Some people come to build their bodies up, some down. We are all different. However, while detoxing it’s likely that you will clean out the system and a few pounds weight loss is the rather fortunate side effect. Those with weight loss in mind will usually lose 7lbs or more (our biggest loser to date lost over 17lbs in one week!) those not looking to lose weight may still lose a few pounds while cleansing.
My cuisine is chef-prepared, gourmet, living, raw vegan food. It is gluten-free, dairy-free and animal product-free. All of our dishes are freshly prepared each day using locally-sourced, organic ingredients where possible. I soak and sprout all my seeds and nuts and share with you my knowledge of how to prepare the most sensational living raw foods using these essential ingredients.
I use local almonds, honey and bee pollen. Non-vegan local products are optional. The local salt we use is hand harvested by an artisan salt producer using traditional methods.
The first two days are juices & smoothies only, followed by juices, smoothies and gourmet raw food suppers. My food is all alkaline, high-vibration, nutritious and delicious! Fruit bowls are always available.
Green smoothies are offered aplenty to help muscle recovery. Quality products such as Udo’s Blend & Beyond Green Powders are included daily.
Snacks also served throughout the day.
Raw Juice Camp is a pop-up bootcamp and we use different villas each year – our 2017 villa is a luxury haven hidden in the hills above the beach and it’s location gives us the perfect daily workout to get to the sands for some body toning. The house has an indoor cinema, games room, outdoor pool, large gardens, space for indoor yoga and fitness and more. There are 5 large double bedrooms in the villa, three of which can be twins or doubles, the two larger rooms are suites. There is air conditioning throughout and we also have a very large suite. Camping options are also available.
Each day is always different and we work with the flow of the group, however this is an idea of how our days might look.
07:30 daily beach hike & workout(10k)
11:45 circuits/ HIIT/ tabata
12:30 pool workouts/team games
14:30 raw food workshops
16:30 yoga or pilates
19:00 movies/sunset yoga
21:00 moon meditation
Days start depending on the sunrise. We always build in extra recovery time where necessary. Wednesday is beach trip day. All guests are given personal fitness tests and technique training. A rebounder is always available for personal use. All clients complete a full PARQ medical questionnaire and receive a one to one assessment with our trainers.
