"It was a home away from home. Prahalladh is one the best trainers you can workout under. He had a huge role to play in changing my thoughts towards fitness and diet. It is very difficult for you achieve your target goal in a short period unless it is something small, It is more of a learning process. My yoga classes with Kushi was something i look forward too and my flexibility got better each day. I also got to meet two amazing people Disha and Noel, we used have long chats on the dining table and laugh our hearts out. Thank you Kushi and Prahalladh for educating me and also changing my life."

"The goal in mind was to loose maximum weight. I was under the impression before I reached the boot camp. But I realized from my Trainer that weight loss is just a by product. The goal is to get fit and stay healthy by exercise and the right choice of food. You will automatically loose weight. I even learnt YOGA which helped me to be at peace with my self and think of things through a different perspective all together I started sleeping for a longer period of time and by the end I was able to get a good sleep from 2 hours to a complete 8 hours!"
"Everything in the camp is timed and calculated and there is a deep reasoning behind it all which has been researched in time."
"My goal and way of thinking changed completely when I finished one month and I had a whole lot of to take back with me. Thank you Khushi and Pralhad a wonderful fun loving couple who really dedicate their best towards you and your Goal towards Good health and Inner Peace!"

"Joining 30 days program was one of the best things I have ever done for myself. This changed my lifestyle entirely. I achieved: Lost about 13 kg in 3 months (5 kg during the 1 month program) Lost 11% body fat in 3 months. Still losing. Became health conscious. I watch what I eat and I eat proper food. Physically fit. I feel great about the way I look now. Daily exercise has become my habit. I used to have stomach issues, but no more after beginning to eat proper food. I quit smoking because I became health conscious"
"I used to be a big foodie and exercise was never a habit. But now, I am so happy about my lifestyle, I go to the gym daily and I am very fit now. I used to weigh 85 kg and now I am currently 71 kg; lost about 9 kg of body fat. I am now building body mass and muscle."
"The program: This is a holistic program. It is not just about losing weight; it's about your overall health. The combination of morning cardio, yoga at noon and training in the evening really changed the way I live. Running around the lake, down hill and uphill was awesome. Yoga in the landscaped outdoor overlooking the valley. Training in the well equipped gym. The people: The trainers, Prahllad (training) and Kushi (yoga) are the best people I have come across. They are so hospitable and very friendly. I enjoyed every minute I spent with them. They are the great in what they teach. Really enjoyed their company and what they taught me. "
"The place: You won't get a better location. My room was over looking a valley and very quite and peaceful. Very clean, beautiful and aesthetically designed rooms and bathrooms. Can't ask for more."
"The food: yum! I was surprised to know even healthy food can be so tasty (some photos attached). You get a calorie counted meal made just for you to meet your goals. Loved every meal they made. We write our journal every day to watch what we eat everyday and this really helped after the program. I was introduced to myfitnesspal app that helps you to keep track of your food intake daily."
"Best program, best people, best place, best food and best results. I am looking forward to join their advanced program soon. "

"So before I attended the camp , I was weighing 91 kilos,Absolutely demotivated to workout and had a very bad lifestyle . "
"Training - The training are very scientifically monitored. We trained twice a day. Mornings,we did Interval training and evening we did weight training alternated by cross-fit training . Interval training helped me in slowly and steadily getting into the groove of running . I struggled with 2 km on the first day and would eventually run 7-8 km at the end of the camp . Weight training helped in getting leaner and stronger . Cross-fit -Would really push the heart rate, would lose a lot of calories during the sessions and improve agility "
"Yoga - We did yoga everyday for an hour.With all the running and training we did , yoga helped in releasing the stiffness , relaxing and improving the flexibility "
"Food - We had fixed timing of eating our meals. We maintained a food journal which helped us understand what we were consuming. We discussed a lot of food eating habits , which probably educated me a lot on how and what to eat . We were trained to eat healthy and at the right times . "
"Stay - It's a beautiful house , absolutely well kept . The rooms are comfortable , very good hygiene levels . A great view from the house looking down the hill . "
"Prahllad - When you know your trainer is good , you know you are the right place.He really knows his thing and trains you with conviction and passion . He's got a great sense of humour which makes training and living with him great fun . "
"Khushi - She taught us yoga. It was a session we looked forward to.She s got great amount of positive and endless energy.She also takes care of the food . Which is absolutely delightful.She makes healthy food look so good and delicious."
"Prahlad and Khushi are a lovely couple and together as a team they do a good job, they make you feel at home.Absolutely encouraging and motivating at all times . "
"End Result - I lost 4 kilos at the camp and another 2 kilos post the trip in 10 days.It really disciplined me and created a lifestyle change.I finished the camp feeling absolutely content,positive, relaxed and feeling the goodness of life. I already miss the camp and look forward to being there soon again. "

"Before getting into 1 On1 fitness,I just blindly wanted to loose my weight,only after taking 1 On 1 Fitness training ,I understood that,only through Patience perseverance and complete dedication its possible to attain a healthy and consistent weight loss. It is not just a weight loss program,Its a complete way of living,which changed my food habits totally.Along with cardio and yoga,I also learnt to cook delicious food items without oil. Proper intake of food in Right Nutrition that is in a proper proportion along with ample workout are the essentials of Healthy Weight loss.Prahallad and Kushi were very friendly. During my stay in kodai,for 22 days,I must say that there wasn't a single day I missed my home. Thanks Kushi and Prahallad for their hospitality and care that made me feel at home."

"I would highly recommend this program to anybody and everybody. I went there for a 12 day fitness program - to get kick started and learn about fitness, not only did I get a good education on fitness but unexpectedly I learned a lot more about life's lessons, our priorities, and spiritual growth.Khushi and Prahllad are excellent hosts welcoming you to their home & their lifestyle. The fitness (diet and exercise designed based on each individual's profile) is positively intense and if followed to the tee for a period of time will definitely produce exemplary results.It should not be looked as a one time weight-loss solution or fitness camp but rather a lifestyle change. The yoga sessions (and the fables told after each yoga session) along with spiritual discussions with Khushi and Prahllad were brilliant.The only thing for someone to consider is there is a lot of free time so be prepared to be alone to read, listen to music, and watch TV (I would suggest ideally if possible go along with a friend.I was fortunate to meet a good roommate else it could get a little lonely/boring during the free time). One last thing, do not go by the weather forecast reports on the internet, ask Prahllad for advice on the same and what clothing gear to carry there."

"1ON1 Fitness Holidays is a great place to rejuvenate mind and body. Both Khushi & Prahlladh are fantastic hosts, ensured everything was done to perfection. Prahlladh is highly trained professional instructor; his training program was excellent and helped me a lot to achieve my fitness goal. Khushi is an awesome yoga and meditation instructor with good energy and great expertise.All in all, the programs were perfect balance of fitness and relaxation. The location is stunning; the house is beautifully, the room with gorgeous view, very clean and comfortable. In general, kodaikanal is a great place for relaxing and enjoying the nature. All meals were healthy and delicious. Highly recommended!"

"Weight loss had always been a problem for me, had tried our local gym under supervision of a trainer, naturopathy, etc. to no avail. I had given up, and gained weight. But Prahlladh cleared up a number of misconceptions and helped me lose. In fact, back home my daughter and I are still continuing, and are still losing weight the Prahlladh-Khushi way!Both my daughter and I were there for 15 days, and lost approximately 4kg each, without fasting, eating gourmet meals, and moderate exercises. I had always thought for losing weight the body is to be denied food. But this myth was cleared here. We were eating healthy, tasty meals without any loss of energy.Prahlladh & Khushi exposed us to an enjoyable regime for reaching our goal. How those 15 days flew by!! I can't do justice to the way they took care of us, fed us, taught us, and organized amazing outdoor fun trips on our off days!They conditioned us so superbly regarding eating habits-food & nutrition that we took to it like ducks taking to water. They gave us a complex, a superior one, that by selective forgoing of unhealthy stuff, which we used to think would be missing out the so called hyped goodies of life, that we did not binge once after coming back, proves how satisfied we were over there.I used to think the HRmonitor was a waste. But they taught us how important, and what a huge motivating tool it is! The place was lovely overlooking a valley in a very serene part of Kodaikanal. And their policy of not sharing the gym with any client, the beauty of the valley was enhanced as it faced the valley.I was suffering from spondylitis, and both Prahlladh and Khushi helped me work on my shoulder and neck muscles helping strengthen it, so that by the time I left the camp I had a bison's neck!! Prahlladh's gym and exercise routine were very vigorous and Khushi 's yoga was equally relaxing and soothing.Whenever we would be going on an outdoor trip they ensured we carried our snacks from home. Home was exactly how both Prahlladh and Khushi made us feel! Completely at home in the most exotic surrounding with the best of amenities! Their abode became our home away from home, and we felt we knew them as friends since ages!There are so many incidents I remember when they went out of their way to make us so comfortable and cared for, beats any 13 star if there is any!!! I learnt a lot about time commitment. If snack time was 4, then Khushi ensured we received snack at exactly 4, not a second before or after! Khushi boosted our spirits and kept us positive so we felt losing weight was very easy.As I write this its been 15 days since we returned, Ive continued and lost 3 more kg, although am not able to do and follow exactly as we were doing at 1on1. A heartfelt thanks to both of you, for changing my perspective, helping me to push myself, for a knowledgeable and amazing vacation! Hope to see you soon."

"Short version: Dont spend any more time researching 1ON1 Fitness - just book it. Six stars out of five!Long version:I spent a very enjoyable seven weeks with Prahlladh and Kushi at 1ON1 Fitness Vacations. I had a goal of improving my fitness so that I could climb Mt Kilimanjaro. I am very pleased to report that I stood on the summit on my 50th birthday.To say it was an easy climb would be unfair to Kilimamjaro but with the overall fitness and strength that I achieved through Prahlladh and Kushi, and it really wasnt that bad. Prior to attending 1ON1 it would have been laughable for me to have considered hiking that high or that far. I would certainly qualify my stay with them as life changing.Food: I was endeavouring to gain weight/muscle mass as well as improve my cardio fitness. The ironic thing about my going to a fitness boot camp in India is that I really dont care for Indian food! There was never any hesitation on their part to continually change my diet to ensure that I was obtaining sufficient calories and a correct nutritional balance of food that appealed to me.Normally I am not a vegetarian so I had some concerns and reservations about the food before I arrived but it was great. I really didnt miss meat and fish. There is a full time cook, Mary, who was exceptional. A star in the kitchen and always ready with a smile. My protein shakes and snacks were delivered to me wherever I was at the designated times it couldnt have been easier.Facilities: The gym features everything one needs. There is a rowing machine, treadmill, elliptical machine, LifeFitness gym, Smith machine, free weights etc. The house is kept immaculately clean. As per their website, the two guest rooms look out on a wonderful view and, on sunny days, the deck was a great place to relax.The guest rooms are very comfortable and each have a big HD television with countless English channels. The internet speed was actually a little better than what I had expected based on the 1ON1 website and other Tripadvisor reviews. I have seen faster internet connections but it was perfectly satisfactory - I was able to Skype friends and family with no problem.Prahlladh & Kushi: The real highlight of the time that I spent in Kodaikanal was the incredible dedication, professionalism, and genuine enthusiasm that P & K demonstrated. It was clear that they really wanted me to succeed and consistently motivated and helped me towards achieving my goal.They made me feel very welcome from the moment I arrived and, within days, I felt like an extension of their family. Saturday evenings, when we visited Kodaikanal for a dinner out, became fun social events and we were privileged to meet several of their wonderful friends. I miss it.Would I return for a repeat visit? Absolutely! Would I recommend them to others? Without hesitation! Just do it -the results are just waiting to be discovered."

"Overall this was a truly amazing experience. I came for a month of fitness training and could not be happier with the results.The entire setup was perfect from start to finish. Every day is structured in such a way that it doesn't get monotonous but pushes you to achieve better results. The location is one of the most scenic in the world. All the staff are extremely nice and supportive, its basically faultless.Apart from the training and the yoga, which I could not have been happier with, I really enjoyed every aspect of my time here but I especially enjoyed the amazing food, the treks/hikes and being made to feel so welcome and such a part of the family!! I would strongly recommend this to anybody!!Finally Prahlladh and Kushi are the two most accommodating and helpful people you could hope to meet and will literally help you with everything you could possibly need. Thanks so much guys!!!"
