AmaWaterways Expands Wellness Program Fleetwide

Posted By : travelisswell/ 49 0

AmaWaterways is expanding its Wellness Program, bringing activities to benefit the mind, body, and spirit to its entire fleet.

Making its way across the fleet in Europe and Southeast Asia in 2019, the Wellness Program is led by a dedicated Wellness Host on each ship who will lead guests in activities such as group fitness classes, including yoga, Pilates, stretching, and resistance band training, plus lectures and discussions on topics related to holistic wellness. On shore, guests can take part in active excursions like guided hiking, biking, and running outings.

“The Wellness Program is very close to my heart, as I believe so strongly in the importance of integrating regular exercise and healthy eating into our day-to-day lives, and it shouldn’t have to stop while having fun on vacation,” said Kristin Karst, executive v.p. and co-owner of AmaWaterways, in press materials.

The Wellness Program made its debut onboard AmaLyra in 2017 after years of AmaWaterways already offering complimentary bike rentals, fitness facilities and a walking track, plus a massage room and hydration station available 24 hours a day for the health-conscious travelers. This year, the Wellness Program added six new Wellness Hosts, and it will continue to expand in 2019 and beyond, according to Karst.

Fitness and Fun on AmaWaterways

Posted By : travelisswell/ 97 0

 

Fitness is a lifestyle for some, so it’s important to keep up the workout routine even while on vacation.  AmaWaterways knows this, which is why it’s launching their Wellness Program on six ships this year.

AmaCerto, AmaPrima, AmaSonata, AmaLyra, AmaDante and AmaDolce will have new programs that have been put together by AmaWaterways’ certified Sports Scientist Selina.

The cruise line is trending up in 2018 and this is certainly one the ways it is setting itself apart from others.

The morning stretching sessions are among the most popular classes. Start the day feeling refreshed thanks to the workout on the sun deck the features breathtaking views.

Core strengthening classes in the late afternoon are also a terrific way to cap off a day of exploring new cities and villages.

Travelers can also bike and hike through these fun destinations to keep their exercise routine intact.

The program is designed to help guests stay active. It’s not about how intense the workout is, but rather the variety of fitness activities you do according to AmaWaterways’ certified Sports Scientist Selina.

Life on board AmaWaterways river cruise is about having fun though, so don’t be surprised if “Champagne Yoga” classes pop up as a surprise while you’re there.
