New year’s resolution: Power walking


After a fantastic Christmas during which we have had lots of fun and treats it is time to stop and focus on our New Year’s Resolutions.

Among our resolutions many of us have leading a much healthier life, which implies to eat better and healthier and to do more sports.

We might want to exercise but if we are not fit enough maybe going running or to spending hours at the gym is far too challenging which would mean we could get demotivated and lose interest quite soon.

At any case the best thing to do is to start little by little with light exercises.

Although running is quite trendy nowadays walking is much lighter, and it is also quite good for our health.

When walking becomes training, this is known as Power walking.

When we do power walking our posture, breathing and motion are very important factors.

The best thing is to do non-stop session between 45 and 60-minute-long and do about 5 kilometres and a half at medium-high intensity as this will help us burn around 400 calories.

By simply doing this our respiratory and cardiovascular system will get better and our muscles will tone up.

If right now you are on holiday with us at Hotel Florida Spa, your hotel in Fuengirola, why don’t you make the most of our fantastic weather and amazing promenade and you do a bit of power walking by our beautiful beaches?

Getting fit in Costa del Sol is a delight!

Ecologic market in Fuengirola


As we have mentioned many times before, in Fuengirola there is always something cool to do.

Last week here on the blog of Hotel Florida Spa we recommended you not to miss the traditional San Juan’s Night celebrations, and today we have another great suggestion: To visit the fantastic ecologic market we have in Fuengirola twice a month.

This Sunday, the 2nd of July, from 8 P.M. to midnight, very close to our hotel, in the Fuengirola Marina, there will be a superb ecologic market with a wide variety of products, from food (ecologic and organic food, products for people with allergies and food intolerances and even fair trade products) to crafts ( related to recycling), as well as natural beauty products.

The organisation in charge of this market also offers a selection of free activities for visitors, like conferences, classes or music performances.

This Sunday in fact there will be a music show by a duet called “Swing Bucket”.

As we know many of you love street markets, if you are currently or holiday with us, or you are planning to come soon, we would like to recommend you to visit the marina in Fuengirola either the first Sunday of the month or the third as in Costa del Sol there are not many outdoor markets as cool as this!

This is the perfect opportunity to start a much healthier lifestyle!
