Work Out with Celebrity Cruises and Canyon Ranch Spa

I never thought I would say that the availability of a well-equipped fitness center has become a top criterion in selecting where I stay on vacation. Throw in some classes and I’m in vacation heaven!  Now with Celebrity Cruises and Canyon Ranch teaming up to revamp the current onboard fitness programs I think it’s time for me to book my next Celebrity cruise!
Celebrity Cruises is introducing twenty new fitness classes and seminar experiences are being introduced.  There are six class categories based on different core needs and exercise groups: Sweat, Conditioning, Longevity, Mindfulness, Nutrition, and Acupuncture.  For example:

Sweat: Tabata Impact – Ah, Tabata…the current fitness rage! When fitness enthusiasts talk about “Tabata training” they are referring to a type of high intensity interval training. Workouts are generally short and intense. Tabata offers the best of cardio and training techniques to provide a full-body workout incorporating enhanced core-strength training exercise. A friend of mine swears that one 30 minute Tabata class can burn away the calories of 3 dirty martinis!

Conditioning: Pilates to the Beat – This lively, Pilates mat-inspired class is choreographed to upbeat pop songs. Can’t wait to try this type of class. What I love about Pilates is that it is low impact and any age and fitness level can do it. Mat Pilates is one of the best ways to stretch and strengthen your body, primarily the muscles of the core.

Longevity: Age-Defying Technology – Learn about the latest technologies, services and products that help with anti-aging. Hmmm…this could be dangerous to my wallet!  There’s nobody I would trust more than Canyon Ranch to recommend the best new age-defying products to try!

Mindfulness: Spiritual Cycling – These classes incorporate mindfulness of form, awareness of energy, and presence of mind while cycling to a playlist of music. As an avid spinner this intrigues   I’m usually breathing so hard I’m just concentrating on my next intake of oxygen!
me. I never thought of spinning as spiritual.

Acupuncture: Acupuncture for Pain Relief – I know many people who have turned to acupuncture to manage pain. Migraines, fibromyalgia, anxiety, back pain…  During these seminars guests will learn from a licensed acupuncturist about the effects of this healing practice.

Nutrition: Detox 101: Weight Loss and More – Gain knowledge about the most effective detoxifying foods, and how they promote weight loss and overall well-being. I left this for last because eating well is so important, yet so challenging for many. Plus, I keep reading so much about detox programs yet do nothing. This sounds like a program numerous people can benefit from.

 The program launches in June on all Celebrity cruise ships. Seminars will be free, while some classes will incur an extra fee, starting at $11.
