Beach Body Boot Campers Rocked It Out

May 6th, 2013

There was climbing, hiking, dancing, swerving, kicking, sweating and more — and it all added up to a rousing fitness success as we wrapped up the first Beach Body Boot Camp last weekend at JBR. Our Boot Campers embraced the aches and pains and came back for more – like 5:00 a.m. crazy more! Those early calls were tough but we were back and relaxing on the beach as everyone else was having their first cup of coffee. What’s more, everyone made the top on the uphill hikes to Shirley Heights and Mount Obama for those beautiful views of the coast, harbor, capital and rolling hills. We’re looking forward to the next Beach Body Boot Camp, August 2-8 and crossed our hearts to keep up the workouts till then. The only huffing and puffing should be the tropical breeze. We hope you’ll join us. Congratulations to all the Boot Campers! We did it, and here are all your smiling faces!


April 25 –Socarobics warmed us up as we got a full-body cardio workout
moving to hottest Soca music from the Caribbean.


April 26 – The steep climb up Mount Obama at 5:00 a.m. tested us all,
and we made it to stand on Antigua’s highest point.


April 27 – ZUMBA® Madness as the sun started to set


April 28 – The reward for hiking ten miles to Shirley Heights Lookout was the
most beautiful and famous panoramic view of Antigua’s coastline.


April 29 – At 5:00 a.m. it was time to work up a sweat during the best light of the
day as we hit the beach for the Fitness Challenge.

Local Jolly Kidz Contest Makes Writing Fun – and Rewarding

May 6th, 2013

Kids have a lot to say and we’re going to make writing some of it down fun with our Jolly Kidz Contest. We’re inviting all Primary School children in Antigua, grades 4 through 6, to tell us in an essay what makes their family special. We’re really looking forward to hearing from lots of children, and we know that we’re going to learn a lot from them. The student who writes our favorite essay will receive an all-inclusive two-night stay at Jolly Beach Resort & Spa for a family of four. Entries will be accepted until May 15th and must include the student’s first-name only along with their parent’s full contact details and a family photo. Send via email to marketing@jollybeachresort.com or by mail to Jolly Beach Resort & Spa, P O Box W2009, Bolans Village, St. Mary’s Parish, ANTIGUA, with the subject line Jolly Kidz Contest. In addition to celebrating families this contest will also spotlight the educators who play such an important role shaping their students’ minds. The teacher whose student claims the top prize will receive a Day Pass for two, and the winning student’s school principal will enjoy a complimentary dinner for two.

The Most Challenging Thing That I’ve Ever Had To Do

March 5th, 2013

This weekend I marked a personal best. I participated in a 14km walk/run to the top of the highest point in Antigua, Mount Obama. This turned out to be the most challenging thing that I’ve ever done since my quest for fitness began 4 months ago.

It was dark arriving at Ffreys Beach for the start of the hike at 5:00am, but the mood was anything but with 59 people ready to spend the next 2 ½ hours together, supporting each other to reach a common goal.  There were clusters of people who stuck together and motivated each other throughout the walk.  It was great team spirit.

The instructors were terrific, making us push ourselves but not so much that we couldn’t keep up.  There were moments when I wanted to slow down or just stop but being part of a group and having the instructors confidence in us kept my feet moving. I tried to pace myself knowing that to reach my goal I’d have to go uphill for the last 15 minutes. Then came the hill, I knew that this was the biggest test, but what accomplishment to overcome it.

My muscles felt the exertion on Sunday, my hike didn’t include a massage like the Insane Beach Body Boot Camp Package but that’s OK, I’d do it again in a minute.
