For quite some time I’ve been looking for an active getaway that still feels like a proper holiday and is also affordable. When I came across Shapecation I thought it might just what I had in mind. It was easy to book my place, Ninette has been very responsive throughout and very well organised, providing relevant information and answering any additional questions I had in the lead up. The retreat was everything I imagined and more. The accommodation was perfect and spacious for the number of participants, close to the sea but also conveniently located to public transport and amenities. The fitness programme was fantastic. Ninette is an amazing coach, making sure that everyone -no matter what fitness level- is well looked after and challenged during the workouts. She effortlessly switches between languages to ensure participants understand how to execute the individual exercises and do not hurt themselves. Ninette is very knowledgeable and passionate about what she does, which really shines through her work. Even though the workouts are tough it is equally a pleasure to be working out with her. The retreat didn’t just end there, it also included wellness (like morning yoga sessions) and free time to yourself. That means everyone gets to decide for themselves whether to book extra training or wellness sessions or spend time sightseeing, sitting by the sea, going hiking, alone or with other people in the group. Last year’s retreat has most certainly made it to the very top of my all-time favourite holiday list. It was the perfect mix of being active, relaxing, meeting (new) like-minded people and enjoying the Spanish sun. It was a no-brainer: I booked for the next retreat again and counting the days for it to start.

Thank you Ninette for the amazing Fitness-retreat! What better way to spend a weekend and forget all everyday duties than to join a merry group that have their well-being in common! Do not hesitate, even if you don’t know anybody – a retreat away from the city, fresh air, tough exercises, healthy food and vibrant discussions in the evening will shake away any shyness that you might have!

I’ve been going to Ninette’s classes for about a year now and she’s one of the most enthusiastic and positive trainers I’ve ever worked with. She really pushes you to achieve your best and I’ve grown so much stronger since attending her classes. I’ve also been on two retreats organised by her and they are just amazing, a true break from routine and wholly revitalising. A fantastic trainer and a wonderful person!

I have been training with Ninette for the past few months. I fully recommend her for her professionalism, caring personality and her energy. It’s the best training I’ve done so far.
Meg – Brussels:
I went on my daily dog walks, and thought that was good enough. But my bad back and too much sitting took their toll. So I started working out with Ninette. She got me off my seat and on the move with work friends who made exercise fun. Now, I actually look forward to workouts.
Maria B. – Brussels:
Ninette has got to be one of the most motivated and upbeat personal trainers that I have ever met. Her infectious positivity is what I need during my lunchbreak sessions and I value her encouragement. Ninette has introduced me to a whole new way of training and continues to show me new and fun exercises! She also helped me understand the importance of correct posture. Ninette definitely knows her stuff, and when I couldn’t manage something, would provide a variation that allowed me to build up to the full exercise. I trust and value her guidance to drive me forward and would wholeheartedly recommend Ninette as a trainer, without reservation.

Excellente coach cours collectifs!
Daphne – Brussels:For a very long time, I thought that it would be impossible for me to one day actually enjoy doing sports. I have tried many different ways of taking up more physical activity, signing up to the gym, taking up classes but I always ended up dropping out. In all honesty, Ninette’s coaching and workout classes were a lifechanger. Her approach to exercising and people, her contagious passion and enthusiasm would make anyone change their mind about sports. She is fully committed to the people she is training and will make sure you reach your goal in the most effective and fun way possible. I fully recommend joining her classes.

I started joining Ninette’s workout in the park a few months ago and now I can’t live without it! She is a great trainer and always come up with all sorts of workouts using the trees, benches and also each other’s body weight. We are a small group of people that not only work out together during the lunch break but also have loads of fun! I denintely recommend her!
