38ºN gives you the space, time and experience to reset your body and mind. You’ll leave us leaner, lighter and most importantly, confident and empowered to sustain your new healthy lifestyle.
38ºN were the first to bring the luxury fitness holidays and wellbeing retreat concept to the beautiful White Isle. Five years on, we’ve gone from strength to strength with numerous national press accolades and happy client testimonials under our belt. Why? Because our approach is real, authentic and balanced. We don’t advocate extremes – in either our training style or food choices. Instead, we give you a holistic mind and body toolkit, that takes into consideration life’s time constraints and stresses.
We are based in luxury hotels in Ibiza (ME) and Marbella (Puente Romano) without a room share, bathroom share or tent in sight and also offer a mid-tier option at the stunning 4* Sol Beach House, Ibiza. When you choose a 38ºN fitness retreat, you’re not just getting world class training and educational workshops, but all the amenities and services of first class hotels. We work on healthy menus with the chefs and kitchen teams, liaise with concierge and front of house to make your stay seamless, plus you can expect the extra touches that make all the difference – free wi-fi, 24 hour room service, in room and at spa treatments, air conditioning, chill out areas, sea view pools, fluffy robes and towels and free yoga and classes such as Body Balance and Tai Chi.
Unlike most retreat companies we prefer to work with smaller numbers to improve your experience. At Sol Beach House we cap numbers at 14, at Puente Romano we cap numbers at 10, and at ME Ibiza we work with a maximum group size of 8 clients to deliver an attentive, personalised and exclusive approach.
What makes our fitness holidays different is our passion, professionalism, knowledge and happy, holistic approach – it’s infectious! Healthy really does look different on everyone and it’s a incredibly individual journey. The way we work with you reflects this – taking into consideration the emotional and physical aspects that often effect motivation, commitment and results.
You’ll leave us leaner, stronger and fitter, but most importantly you’ll know how to integrate your new found knowledge and motivation into everyday life.

38ºN was just what I needed. Paddle boarding, yoga and boxing were just some of the activities I enjoyed during my 5 day stay. The team at 38ºN are amazing – they really know their stuff and were very hospitable. My favourite part was being able to relax and have some downtime whilst having daily workouts. This isn’t always possible at home with a busy schedule so I like how the timetable caters for a little bit of everything. I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to recharge, try varied activities and enjoy some yummy juices and food all whilst taking in the Ibiza rays.

The hotels they choose are excellent, their range of activities are comprehensive and I managed to return exhausted but recharged. James and Claire certainly know what they are doing and they put so much of themselves into the retreat that its clearly not “just a job” to them. I enjoyed the 4 days with a great bunch of people and will be aiming to join them again later this year.

The motto here at 38ºN is “Reset your co-ordinates”. And that’s exactly what happened. 6 days of intense yet brilliant and enjoyable exercise in a fantastic group environment. Everyone had a different level of fitness, yet we all stuck to our own pace and became fitter through supporting each other. The food is incredible, the team element is fun and, the timetable perfectly thought out with enough time to chill and get a tan too! Ibiza and health don’t normally go hand in hand, but this is the Ibiza I’ll be opting for from now on. James, Kelly and Faye are absolutely fantastic. Two (much fitter and lighter) thumbs up!!

38ºN is a brilliant way to kick start a new health and fitness lifestyle and a good kick in the pants for even an ardent gym bunny like me. The team are great fun and so enthusiastic about what they do, its infectious. I highly recommend it!

I’m booking the Marbella retreat in January so that will be my third trip with them in 9 months! Couldn’t recommend them more – I am aching today no denying it but I am once again armed with new tips and techniques and feel amazing!!

This did everything I expected! I joined the Body:Reset programme in Ibiza…and it turned out to be just what I needed!
This was my first experience of a fitness retreat and my first visit to Ibiza. Well worth it – from learning about nutrition, to fitness and SUP and listening to what is good for my body. A very good mix of high intensity fitness, relaxation techniques and workshops that would help in all area’s of my life. Definitely worth the money and I feel revitalised and ready to continue when I came back home.
The best thing about this-I found the Trainer Claire really listened and helped me get the the most out of my experience here. Thank you Guys!

I really needed a week away after a few stressful weeks at home. Felt out of shape and in need of some focus. The 38ºN team totally nailed it for me. Beautiful location and a super team combined to make it one of the best weeks of my life.
Quite often fitness trainers are very cliched and obsessive but Rob was gentle but persuasive and very inspirational. I lost a kilo of body fat in five days!! Truly professional and a brilliant schedule of different activities which constantly kept it interesting. Recommend this 100%!
Sarah, Body:Fit Ibiza 2016
We went again, and we loved it again. In fact some bits were even better. Great training, great company. What more can be said.
