Pawel Co Founder of Peru Fitness Holidays

How did you get into the fitness industry?

I believe that if you do the right things for the right reasons everything else will sort itself out. So with many years of experience in sport and a passion for sharing my knowledge and experiences with other people it was clear that the fitness industry was the right place for me. I find working closely with people and helping them to reach their fitness goals really rewarding.

 Why did you set up Peru Fitness Holidays?

There are few things that inspired me to set up Peru Fitness Holidays. My wife and I fell in love with Peru when we first visited in 2012. But without my friend Dan, who I was really lucky to meet in Peru, the company probably wouldn’t have come to exist. I am a personal trainer but also a keen runner. Meeting and training with some runners in Peru I got to see first hand the potential many of them have and sadly how for many they will never be able to reveal their true abilities because of the lack of support. So we decided to provide not only an unforgettable experience for people coming to Peru to take part in one of our holidays but also to give back something for Peru. For all those involved in Peru Fitness Holidays, our support for the local athletes is just as important as organizing amazing holidays.

 What do you most enjoy about personal training?

 Seeing people reach their goals and seeing the confidence and happiness that it brings them is an amazing part of this job. I love to work with people, interact with them. Every single person has different skills, struggles, goals and personalities and being able to work with them makes this job really exciting and challenging. One thing for sure is that it is never monotonous.

What do like the most about Peru?

Peru has so much to offer that it is hard to say one thing. It’s an extremely amazing country with mountains, jungle, world-renowned food, culture, history it is the place you would struggle to get bored even after of many years living here. If I would have to choose one thing though that impressed me the most I would have to say Machu Picchu – wonder of the world. It is not by chance that it is so popular… It was one of my dreams from childhood to visit and I wasn’t disappointed when I saw Machu Picchu for the first time. A truly unforgettable experience.  

What is your highlight on the Bootcamp?

Inca Bootcamps in the Sacred Valley are a really unique experience on a world scale. They were created to be a kick-start for any weight-loss or fitness regimes. Being based in the Sacred Valley, our Bootcamps will not just make you fitter and more motivated to lead your life in a healthier way but you will leave this place full of amazing experiences and memories and for sure you’ll want to come back the following year. 

What message would you give to anybody thinking about coming on one of our fitness holidays?

If you are looking for an amazing experience with real value for body and mind then look no further. We have put all our efforts together to create a once in a lifetime experience. So take your chance to make the long-lasting lifestyle changes and book your place now.
