Get a Healthy Start to 2018

A kickstart to a healthy lifestyle

A healthy break in Cork at The River Lee hotel

Whenever the New Year begins, it’s natural to want to kickstart a healthier lifestyle. The post-Christmas fatigue has kicked in, and we all start to feel the impact that a season of decadence brings. Suddenly, we want to put on our runners, dust off that juicer and feel as fit and healthy as we can.

But it can be tricky, when you’ve had a few weeks (or more) of rich meals, chocolates by the fire and one too many glasses of wine. Which is why getting away for a healthy break is a great way to kick a new lifestyle into gear.

The NRG gym is right inside The River Lee hotel, making it the perfect fitness break in Cork city.

At The River Lee, keeping fit and healthy couldn’t be easier. This year, they have created a package specifically designed for people looking to get fit and healthy, with elements that will leave you feeling at your absolute best.

The fantastic NRG Fitness gym is right inside the hotel, which means you have access to a multitude of fitness classes, gym equipment and a swimming pool without even having to go outside. As part of A Taste of Wellness, you’ll receive a full Health Review by a dedicated personal trainer in the state-of-the-art gym. They’ll review your weight, BMI, blood pressure and body fat percentage, so you know exactly where you’re starting off from. They’ll then take you through all of the gym equipment, so you can learn how to use everything and how it will benefit you.

You’ll start the day off right with a healthy breakfast, including a fresh juice or smoothie from The Juicery. There are always a multitude of healthy options available in The River Lee, and the restaurant staff will always be happy to advise as to what’s healthy on the menu.

If you want to explore Cork City, then the best way to get out there is by lacing up your runners and seeing the sights on foot. A specialised Jogging and Walking route map has been designed just for this purpose, so you can find the best way to see the city and get a good workout in the process.

There are even some healthy snacks included – you’ll find Protein Balls in your room upon arrival, so you’re starting off on track!

The Taste of Wellness package includes…

  • Two-nights accommodation in a beautifully appointed room
  • Protein Balls in your room on arrival
  • Healthy breakfast each morning
  • Juice/Smoothie from The Juicery
  • NRG Health Review
  • Dedicated jogging & walking map of Cork City; 5km, 7km and 10km routes
