A digital nomad fitness retreat might be just the thing you need to get out your work rut. Or maybe those long hours at the computer, even awkwardly typing on a hammock or deck chair, followed by the endless nights of drinking and eating has got you craving more for your life and body? After all, isn’t adventure, health and physical well-being one of the reasons we travel? I know it is for me. Long term fitness retreats for nomads are still a new concept, especially affordable ones, but there are plenty available and dozens of ways to stay fit while traveling.

One of my favorite things about fitness travel is you immediately have a built in community of people who have the same goals as you, with a shared bond. Yes, you can find that at coworking space with some effort, but I assure you, people training as painfully as you are become friends for life, more so than if you have a coffee break in the afternoon and discuss work. The good news is that with digital nomad fitness travel, you don’t have to choose – you can have both! Check out some of our top picks for tennis, yoga, muy thai, surfing and a highlight of coliving spaces that make certain sports and fitness activities easily accessible and affordable. Have one to add? Please let us know about your digital nomad fitness retreats in the comments.

Thanyapura Sports and Tennis Resort Phuket, Thailand

Thanyapura Sports and Tennis Resort Phuket Thailand

I can guess what you’re thinking. Living at a 4 star resort for a 2 months, with breakfast and unlimited fitness opportunities on a DN budget? True story! Thanyapura was one of my favorite homes so far! I got super healthy, was more productive than anywhere else I’ve been, had a great social life (not drinking, but other activities) and loved it there. If you email them for long term rates, expect a price similar to a nice European city apartment. Prices are higher than typical Thailand, but far less than you think! Nothing beats resort living and unlimited sports and fitness, hiking, biking, tennis, yoga, pilates, meditation, gourmet and healthy food and so much more! If you combine one month at Thanyapura with one month on Koh Lanta below, a total budget of two months of fitness boot camp, in very nice accommodations will cost you about $3000 for two months and that even includes some meals. Sharing a room? Won’t be quite half, but it will be a lot less.

Muy Thai @ KoHub Coliving and Coworking, Koh Lanta

Muy Thai Digital Nomad Fitness

KoHub sets the gold standard for coworking and coliving around the world, but if you are thinking of taking up Muy Thai, then Koh Lanta is the #1 place in the world to train. You can stay at the KoHub coliving, or you can get a killer deal and stay at the upscale Lanta Sport Resort, where the Lanta Muy Thai Academy is located, about a 4 minute scooter ride to the Coworking space. Work at the coworking space, or their gorgeous outdoor pool, with breathtaking sunset views and solid wifi. A one month stay at the hotel, with training twice a day is just over $600. The resort often works even better deals if you offer to pay cash upon arrival. My first month as a “location independent” professional was at KoHub and it was a fantastic introductory month to life on the road.
