Perfect Balance


How It Works

  1. Select your Beaches & Barbells holiday, room option & secure your spot with a non-refundable deposit payment.
  2. The remainder payment is required a minimum of 8 weeks prior to the holiday start date - this will be followed up by Beaches & Barbells in due course
  3. A pre-trip email and questionnaire will be sent out 4 weeks prior to the start date - the questionnaire will request your personal details along with your training history for our coaches to have to hand
  4. An optional Team WhatsApp group will be offered
  5. Your holiday package paperwork / digital information will be issued 2 weeks prior to departure
  6. If you are booking solo (as with most of our guests!) and choose the twin share option, you will be paired up with another solo traveller of the same sex

Booking & Payments

  1. Secure your spot with a non-refundable deposit.
  2. A minimum of 8 weeks prior to the holiday start date, full payment will be required. The final payment method will be clarified by Beaches & Barbells once the booking has been made.

Covid & Cancellation

If WE have to cancel the trip because of travel bans/border restrictions etc., then you have the following options:

  • Transfer any funds you have already paid to any future holiday with us (within the next 2 years), or
  • Request a full refund. Obviously as a small travel business it goes without saying that we would be enormously grateful if you chose to transfer your booking instead of requesting a refund, but we’d be happy to honour your request.

If YOU have to cancel the trip because of issues with local lockdown restrictions, positive test preventing you from travelling, etc., and the trip is still going ahead, then you will need to make a claim with your travel insurance provider.

This is because if indeed there are some form of local lockdown restrictions still in place, these are likely to affect only a few individuals joining the trip.

With guests joining us from different parts of the world, all with different rules/restrictions it is extremely difficult for us to provide a comprehensively flexible policy that would cover everyone.

As an aside, you will need to have travel insurance to attend any of our trips. We would recommend that for the time being your travel insurance should also cover you for the following:

  • Positive COVID test preventing you from travelling.
  • Local restrictions preventing you from travelling.

say about us

Just back from the Cyprus CrossFit holiday with James and Kristian. Fantastic coaches and varied training incorporating Olympic lifting, skills, drills, gymnastics. Everyone hit a PB and it’s great to train with a mixed crowd in the sun. The Box is 5 mins from the hotel and has plenty of time to chill and relax.

Kristian K.

Such a fantastic holiday, had the best time learning so much from the amazing coaches, meeting great people and having loads of fun! Everything was very well organised, with training facilities and location on point!

Recently came back from the CrossFit holiday in Cyprus and it way exceeded my expectations. It was the ideal mix of training and chill out time, perfect for re-setting whilst developing and learning new skills. The coaching was excellent, tailored for mixed abilities and based around what individuals wanted to get out of it, plus you have an individual debrief session at the end of the trip with a ton of useful things to take home to work on. Gym and hotel facilities were great, and Kristian and James went way beyond what was expected in looking after the group. Was lucky enough to have the company of some great people too who I will keep in touch with!
