Can you make it?


Working Together & Having Fun

Hello everyone!

Will Taylor here, (Owner of BARCH Richmond). I have been blown away by interest for our first retreat so I am so excited to tell you what it is going to entail!

At BARCH we concentrate on good workouts, clear instruction and fun whilst it’s all going on and now we're all going on a summer holiday to Gran Canaria!

Why Gran Canaria?

  • I picked Gran Canaria because one of my best mates, James Fender, owns a CrossFit box out there called CrossFit Kaizen which is full of state of the art facilities. 

  • Our workouts will be a mix of gym workouts at Kaizen and we'll also be taking our own equipment out for workouts at the villa.

  • I have been out there every year for the past five years, the gym is awesome, same vibe that we have in our gym. The set-up is insane, think BARCH but bigger by about 20 times.

  • With James, out there he has expert knowledge of local hikes, fun hangouts and where to have the best local food.

  • The weather is hot all year round, as it’s just off the West coast of Africa if you didn’t know!

Shower at the gym then head into the Vegueta - This is where Las Palmas comes alive for the locals - we'll be going out for tapas! After dinner we'll drive for approximately an hour down to the villa in the sunnier south of the island (there's also a lot more to do in the area).

Bedroom options

Obviously in a gorgeous big Spanish villa there are a variety of bedroom options available. On our complex there are three different buildings, which are stated in the bedroom options below, all with their own lounge area, kitchen, toilet etc. There are seven rooms in total (so 12 of you coming on the retreat). There are three super kings, one double and two twin rooms available. The rates provided cover you for a bed, not a room. If you want a room to yourself you'll need to pay a double rate. 

When it comes to booking please be as explicit as you can about your preferences. If you're signing up as a pair let us know so we can put you in the right room for you, if you're signing up on your own and have a preference of who you could share with please let us know. 

Any questions about the rooms, just chat to us. 

It's going to be epic

We're expecting the retreat to sell out and space is very limited so if you are keen please contact me asap to book. 

If you have any questions about anything, please don't hesitate to ask me. Drop me an email at info@barchrichmond.com or catch me in the gym. Please note that the trip is not solely for BARCH members, so if you're hoping to come with a non-member friend, they're very welcome! 

I hope that covers everything. 

Big love, 
Will Taylor

BARCH Owner/Coach
