Travel is all about choice: do you splurge on a business class ticket, or settle in for a cozy ride in economy? Spend the morning on the beach or shopping in town? Or, better yet, go shopping first for a new bathing suit, which you can then wear on the beach?

Here's question for all you Caribbean jetsetters: on your next visit to Buccament Bay Spa & Resort, would you consider taking part in an all-inclusive boot camp program? Now, before you go diving under the covers picturing mean-faced drill sergeants screaming at you to do more push-ups than are humanly possible, just keep in mind this is actually a luxury boot camp. So while the goal is to work out, the parallel goal is also to pamper.

Included in the five-day, six-night program (which starts at $4,309 for single occupancy and $7,724 for double occupancy) are not one but two personal trainers, who help tailor the program to your fitness needs. A different itinerary is offered each day (to keep the exercising interesting), and workouts could include anything from hiking to kayaking to soccer to weight-lifting. Then again, this is boot camp, so it's probably a combination of all of 'em.

Alongside the workout regimen, guests are given a specially-selected, balanced menu of high-protein, high-carbohydrate foods, many of which use local products.

Fitness instruction, meals, airport transfer, beverages, and one private tennis lesson are included in the price. Which certainly makes things easier—once you've 'chosen' this as the program for you, everything else can pretty much fall into place.
