Our Rocco Forte Health programmes are based on Sebastian Kneipp’s five pillars - exercise, nutrition, water, plants and balance. Every programme integrates each of these pillars in order to exceed an individual’s expectations.
How do we use these pillars?
Exercise is obviously very close to my heart. Movement is crucial to our programmes and to Verdura Resort as a whole. Rocco Forte Fitness at Verdura includes numerous sports, such as Pilates, yoga, indoor fitness classes, outdoor trekking, tennis, water sports, golf and much more. I can integrate any of these activities into your fitness schedule, and with your personal training sessions, I’ll highlight your strengths and weaknesses, as well as make sure you have great training routines to take home.
Nutrition is an indispensable part of wellbeing. Our Rocco Forte Nourish menus are created with zero mileage, organic ingredients, handpicked from our vegetable gardens. Our chef will also give you some nourishing recipes to take away.
Water is fundamental to our programmes. During the programmes, you’ll need to repeat our thalasso circuit, use our infrared and Finnish saunas, as well as our double-height steam room. You’ll also enjoy treatments using different temperature compresses and our private steam baths, carried out by our team of qualified professionals.
Local plants and herbs are found in our menus, and in particular, in our daily smoothies. They’re also in our very own product line, Forte Organics, which are used to carry out some of your treatments.
Balance is the final part that brings the whole philosophy together. In our fast-paced everyday lives, everybody needs to find time to reflect, relax and replenish. Verdura Spa is an oasis of calm, set amid sun-kissed olive groves, oranges and lemon trees, with views of the mountains and endless space. We give you great new techniques and ideas to help you deeply relax during your stay and to bring back home with you.
Our aim is for you to leave having achieved your goals. The team and I want to give you intelligent advice that can realistically be incorporated into your daily life. I hope we can welcome you to try one of our health programmes soon.
