Ich hatte diesen Urlaub alleine gebucht, ohne jegliche Erfahrung im Kampfsport (abgesehen von einigen Stunden im Fitnesscenter). Somit war es für mich ein Sprung ins kalte Wasser :) Gleich zu Beginn wurde ich von Kathi und Shahab mit einer Herzlichkeit empfangen, die man nicht oft erlebt. Sie zeigten Interesse an meiner Person und waren sehr um mein Wohlbefinden bemüht.
Das Training war zwar hart, Shahab erkannte jedoch die Grenzen und konnte sich auf die unterschiedlichen Levels einstellen und die Trainingseiheiten dementprechend variieren. Ich habe einiges Lernen können und würde jederzeit wieder kommen.
Das Camp in den Bergen hat nicht nur durch die Schönheit der Natur eine heilende Wirkung, man wird auch mit gesundem und köstlichem Essen verköstigt und lernt auch diesbezüglich viel dazu. Abgesehen von den sportlichen Aktivitäten werden sehr interessante Exkursionen angeboten, sowohl an der Küste als auch im Landesinneren. Eine tolle Erfahrung (sowohl sportlich als auch menschlich gesehen), die ich jedem empfehlen kann!!! Top!

I highly recommend the bootcamp since Shahab is an amazing instructor iper-passionate and with a contagious never-stand-still stitude to push beyond your limits. I am seriously considering to come back again since it is in sunny spain which takes only couple of hours of flight which was one of the big reason to chose it in the first place (instead of wasting 2/4 days of my hard earn vacation travelling)
My biggest concern of doing the camp was that I would get injured and stop since since I was 6 years without doing any physical exercise.
The trainings were tough even for other people more fit than me. Still I was determined to finish them all. The training were always varying which avoided to be boring/repetitive.
I have learned a great deal on boxing and thai box. I was a bit overweight but I was able to overachieve my goals in terms of being fit and boxing experience. I feel to be a new person. Furthermore being on the sunny spain I was also able to get a nice tan. The weather has been fantastic.
At the begining I was skeptical of the altitude/mountain training. Though i actually liked it a lot. Being on the mountain allow to have a greater focus and less distractions.
Shahab was super helpful and he really put all of himself into running the camp inventing new exercises and excursions. I loved the waterfall excursion. He is also fluent in english, spanish and german.

Shahab is not only the best Trainer i have ever had but he is also a good person, full of passion and good humor: he is fully dedicated to make you feel good and get the best out of you. Kathy and all Shahab's Family are beautiful people. I will be for ever thankful for this enriching experience!
I think that the accomodation at the beach is not ideal: no wi fi in the room and no reception 24h. The rooms are a bit old and not very comfortable.

The trainer was very motivating. The training was varying and professional, also the locations of the training were great (especially on the beach and in the mountains).
We spent a lot of time in the car.

I had booked an 8 days (2 sessions daily) with punchcamp spain in the beginning of May. Shahab is the coach. The training with Shahab was superb! Shahab has a huge amount of knowledge about martial arts. Shahab used the first day to check my abilities, allowing him to make a program fit for me for the rest of the stay. The session perfectly changed between conditioning, power and technique training. Every session was different, which for a fighter is very good, because he/she has to adapt to what's coming. This element of surprise is very motivation and keeps every session interesting.
I traveled to the punchcamp with a 10 months baby. during every session Shahab wife Katy, took care of my baby while I was training. I could not ask for a better babysitter then Katy. Whether it was an early session in the morning or at night, she kept my daughter happy, while I could focus 100% on my training.
I will come back and bring more fighters!
Nothing negative about the punch camp spain. I do would have liked it if there were more people at the same time to get even more motivation. Also I would have liked to have combined some sessions with local kick/thai boxing gyms.
Had a great time with Katy and Shabs on this training holiday. Being picked up from the airport was a great touch, taking out any stress of finding the hotel etc after a long flight. The training began outside on allies fantastic coastline and continued either in their gym space or in surrounding beautiful countryside. I have no idea where Shabs's energy comes from but it is infectious and somehow he brings every last inch of effort out of you. I will certainly recommend this holiday to fellow friends, male and female. I will visit the great Katy and Shabs again real soon. Your new friend, Vanessa :)
