The fitness house is a part of 18 row houses but is secluded from most of the others. Being a part of this gated community gives added security and good maintenance of the lawns and surrounding forest areas. The fitness house is located opposite the Kodaikanal Golf Club and is the last constructed area in Kodaikanal after which is the forest reserve; hence you can imagine the silence and peace you will enjoy.

There are two rooms at 1ON1 Fitness Holidays/Boot Camp: room with double bed, a common bathroom which is just outside the room and a bay window with valley view, and twin bedroom with attached bathroom and a deck with valley view.

Kodaikanal is a special place where the instructors have spent the most wonderful times of their childhood trekking, cycling, bison watching, playing golf, tennis and badminton. It's not just another hill station, the instructors also own a house here, had their wedding here and have eventually set up 1ON1 Fitness holidays/ Boot Camp. As you can see they love the place and would like to invite you to enjoy and share the joy they get from it.

It is a paradise for people who love nature and fitness. More so when you see it with their eyes you are sure to be spell bound. The mountains provide the best on and off road experiences which facilitates better muscle utilization and a good mix for a great cardio vascular workout. There are waterfalls, stunning views and trails to be explored and to be seen. Nothing on this earth can beat a spectacular view earned after a long run, trek or a mountain bike ride.

Vested in the Palani hills, Kodaikanal is in the state of Tamil Nadu in south India. It is situated at an altitude of about 2,133-meters high and covers an area of 21.45-square kilometers. It is quiet and peaceful all through the day, with a few people around as against the hustle and bustle of the city. The phone network is fragmented which works to advantage, as there are fewer incoming calls and more peace of mind. Initially guests do miss their phones ringing, social interaction, coffee shops but then after a week of settling in they realize the benefits of being disconnected.
