FLAB fighters from all over the world will descend on Majorca in January for the first of the island's Boot Camps.
The camp, run by former British Army fitness instructors Liz and Ian Robinson, is housed on a country estate near Bunyola and the first clients wanting to work off that Christmas and New Year excess will be welcomed at the end of January.

The owners said the Mereo Boot Camp was not a fitness farm or health spa. Liz Robinson explained that the first seven-day course would be tough, but friendly, and open to people, including Majorca residents, wanting to shed some extra pounds after the festive period. “We have had plenty of inquiries and a few bookings already. We believe that after Christmas with people making New Year's resolutions we will get a lot more reservations,” added Liz.
