Welcome to The Fit Traveller!
Thanks so much for stopping by. We hope to get to know each other a bit better so we thought we would tell you a little more about what you’ll find and why you will want to make TFT a daily destination.
The Fit Traveller is a hub for inspirational, aspirational and informative coverage of luxury travel, health and fitness, wellness, culinary innovation, sophisticated style and game changing people from around the globe.
Want to know how it all started? Read this first.
Don’t judge The Fit Traveller by our name alone. While we love health and wellness, we are not strictly about wellness travel. We focus on luxury travel and culinary travel too. Even better, when luxury, wellness and fabulous food come together in one big healthy holistic package, that’s perfection.
But if you are just looking for somewhere to indulge, you will find that here too. After all, at The Fit Traveller we believe in balance.
How to Find What You Are Looking for on The Fit Traveller
Looking for somewhere to relax and recharge on your next weekend getaway or longer luxury holiday? This is where you will find our featured property reviews. Each review is divided into the elements we find important in a 5-star property – the accommodation (Stay), the food (Nourish), the amenities (Move + Heal), and what you will find if you can pull yourself away from your villa (Explore). These are all properties we have personally stayed at. We take you there by way of a beautiful descriptive narrative of our own stay, with all the information you need to book your own stay and imagery we capture ourselves while we are there. We are very particular about who we work with because we think you should be picky about where you stay; just like us, you are busy and your time is precious.
This is where you will find features on retreats we have road tested around the world; from grassroots, electricity-free yoga and meditation immersion in Cambodia to a luxury wellness escape in Thailand. You will find first-hand authentic, experiential reviews of specific retreats and hotels and resorts that offer bespoke retreat programs for those looking for the perfect balance of both.
Here you will find everything from pocket guides and itineraries for a particular destination to personal stories and anecdotes from our contributors’ and general interest stories relevant to customs, cultural considerations or current events happening now around the world. Simply scroll through the main page if you are happy to have a browse or use our search box or drop down menu if you are in search of some travel hacks for a particular place.
While we absolutely believe road tasting the cuisine unique to each country you visit is vital. However, we also hope to make it easier for travellers to make some healthy choices while they are on the road too. We also understand that holidaying with food allergies and intolerances or a particular training diet can be tough, so we want to cut down your potential time and frustration in finding a cafe or restaurant, by finding them for you. So, search our Healthy Eating Guides in this section for a little guidance. You will also find restaurant, event and foodie product reviews and our own simple, healthy and nourishing recipes that you can try at home, your Airbnb kitchen or hotel room under Nourish.
We want to help you stay moving while at home and on holiday. This is where you might find interviews with fitness experts, inspiring stories and healthy living hacks to help you stay on track to meet your health goals in the lead up to a holiday. You will also find ways to get moving while you are travelling; from hiking in Switzerland to bike riding among the rice terraces of Ubud. Exercising on holiday shouldn’t be something you dread. We help you hack it; to make your pre-trip fitness fun and something you look forward to continuing while you are on holiday.
This section is home to those luxury touches we love. You will find beauty tips and product reviews, Style Stories featuring brands we love and work with and packing guides to take the pain out of preparing for your next trip. There is a lot of exciting content to come here, so stay tuned.
Want to get to know some of the game changers making waves in business, travel, wellness, fitness and other industries today? This is your sweet spot. Short on time? You will find quick Q and A profiles of movers and shakers you will want to get to know as well as their business, health and travel hacks. It’s here you will also find more in-depth profiles on everyone from celebrities to ordinary people who are doing the extraordinary. It’s under this tab that you will also find personal stories and letters from our CEO and editor, Skye Gilkeson.
