Tuscan Fitness Frequently Asked Questions
How many hours do you work out and do you have to do it all?
Tuscan Fitness is a health holiday first and foremost. If you are looking for delicious, healthy food coupled with relaxation by the pool, then we can make that happen. Alternatively, if you would like to follow a fitness programme, while also enjoying good food and the beautiful countryside, then that is what you can do. The programme that you will be taking part of is one that has been created in order to make sure that you lose the maximum amount of weight in the shortest period of time. Some of our clients are not only interested in losing weight but also simply want to get their lives on the right track. Bearing this in mind no one is constrained to do anything beyond their capabilities or desires.
Is it possible to go sight-seeing?
Of course! Italy is home to so many famous regions, but we believe Tuscany to be up there with the most beautiful and interesting. There are so many towns worth visiting and fabulous places to go and visit in the area that we will provide a variety of choices for you as day trip options.

What will we be eating?
The diet that has been put together for our clients is one based on the “whole-foods” approach to eating. At Tuscan Fitness we believe that this approach is not only the most wholesome but it is also comprehensive and delicious. These are health holidays after all, so the food has to be healthy but also deliciously apertising. We at TF truly want to help you make a change if you want, and to get you onto the right track for your future health and a fabulous body, therefore we believe that there is no point in trying to impose something inconvenient. The meals will be based around the Mediterranean diet, and will be full of rich flavors and goodness and are all sourced locally, assuring their freshness, without any of the “bad stuff”!!!
Can you tell me more about the accommodation?
The hotel is located at Fontebussi, an ancient village with Roman origins, once known as “in fontibus”. Set beside the famous Chianti hills, the hotel looks out over farms, cypresses, vineyards and olive groves, with amazing views in all directions.
This breathtaking village has been inhabited continuously for thousands of years, prized for its location and beauty. A few years ago, a restorer was asked to come and renovate the property while keeping the charm and conserving the Tuscan style it had become know for. He brought new life to the structure; every door, garden, terrace or alley is now incorporated into the hotel grounds, giving the location an exclusive feel that also retains the traditional, ancient atmosphere of the area. Tranquil yet luxurious, the hotel provides the perfect setting for a Tuscan health holiday.
What is included in the price?
The package cost includes accomodation, three meals a day, activities (yoga, hiking and circuit training), a piece of Tuscan Fitness merchandise and a shuttle service from Montevarchi station to our location. There are massages and wine tastings available as add ons and you can book through us!
