Tara Wood founded the Wild Fitness in 2001, and the idea has since been widely acknowledged. Her design of fitness holiday was derived from her passion for the natural outdoors and conviction in the potential of the human body. Tara was raised in Kenya and realized that remaining outdoors amidst nature, being active and eating well could boost your mood and health like no medicine could and she wanted the others you experience it.

These comprise of fitness assessment, lifestyle and nutritional counselling, massage, and taxing physical activities including running, swimming, boxing, snorkelling, canoeing, and flexibility/posture correction workshops. On coming back home you’ll be a healthier happier man. Making an allowance for the reviews of some of the participants the result is up to the promise: the holiday is really transformative!
