Hi, I'm Sammy!

I created BLITZ By Harper with four pillars in mind; FITNESS. MIND. COMMUNITY. FUN. These are the cornerstones and something every BLITZ class represents. It is more than just a workout programme, it's a community, it's working out for the body AND the mind.

I discovered yoga in 2013 after years of strength and conditioning training left me wishing I could touch my toes. Through a consistent practice of yoga and meditation, I found the freedom to move in a way that I didn't think possible. 

Along with improving flexibility, I've gained strength, balance and connection, both on and off my mat.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS THE COVID CANCELLATION POLICY?

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


  • If the trip gets cancelled do not fret! No money will be lost. The retreat date will simply move to a new date. 
  • Request a 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
CAN I COME ON THIS ESCAPE BY MYSELF?

Yes! Travelling alone is surely one of the best ways to meet new people.

For guests travelling solo you can choose a space in one of the Deluxe Twin shared rooms, or choose to take one of the other Deluxe Doubles or Master Doubles for solo occupancy.

WILL I GET ANY ‘FREE' TIME?

Absolutely! We will always schedule down time in our daily itinerary for you to chill by the pool, go to the spa or nap in the sunshine. 

WHICH AIRPORT DO I FLY INTO?

Fly into Marrakech. 

The transfer from the airport to the villa is roughly 50 minutes.

WHAT LEVEL OF FITNESS DO I NEED TO BE AT? DO I NEED TO BE SUPER FIT TO COME?

We always accommodate a variety of fitness levels, and there will be lots of down time for you to relax and recover from the workouts. We programme each workout to allow you to work to your own abilities & pace, and our epic trainers are always on hand to provide modifications to exercises if required. The Blitz is all about community and so we encourage you to get stuck in as much as possible, challenge yourself and see what you’re capable of! 


It’s your choice as to whether you participate in each workout, but we’d always encourage you to get involved in as much as possible, challenge yourself for the week, and see what you’re capable of! Remember, it is a fitness retreat after all.

WHAT SORT OF WORKOUTS CAN I EXPECT ON MY ESCAPE?

The coaches on your trip will programme as much variety as possible in the format, style & location of each of the workouts throughout the week. You can expect different training techniques such as functional strength movements involving sandbags and dumbbells, plyometric bodyweight movements and endurance training, boxing, team runs, HIIT circuits and our legendary finishers! There will also be the option of a daily yoga and meditation session 

CAN I PAY BY INSTALMENTS?

Yes. To do this, first you need to confirm your place on the Escape by paying the appropriate deposit. After we've received the funds we'll be in touch to set up your instalments. As long as all payments are made by the Payment Due Date (60 days before the start date of the retreat), we allow guests to split the balance of the Escape into up to 3 payments.
