Mandy’s Health, food & beauty blog
Since last month I found a new gym:
Azzurro Wellness Noordwijk, situated just behind the dunes and 100 meter from the beach.
It is one of the best gyms in the Netherlands!
Early last century they played tennis here and it was one of the largest tennis stadiums in the country where international matches were played.
There is fitness, a swimming pool, sauna’s, tennis, squash, golf, massage benches, workshops, bootcamp on the beach, unlimited drinks, outside there is a nice terrace and inside you will find a lounge with fireplace.
The mission of Azzurro is that they want to bring fun in sport and relaxation. They pull this off because of the special location, comfort, variety of facilities and dedicated staff.
There is also a nice beauty salon for different treatments.
When you enter Azzurro you feel the peace and relaxation, the beautiful mix of design chairs from Dolce & Gabbana and notice the amazing view over the beautiful lighted pool with artwork.
I got a personal sports schedule that the trainer made for me. I am training to get more muscle mass, particularly abdominal muscles 😉
Some of the lessons they offer: RPM, Yin Yoga, Club power, Spinning, Ground Control Pilates, Astanga Yoga Easy, Azzurro dance, XCO, Azzurro Aqua and much more.
After my workout of 75 minutes I go to the sauna, (also good for muscle pain after a workout!), swimming pool and whirlpool.
Everytime I finish, it feels like I’ve had a short break when I’m leaving there!
If you want to come for only one day, you can buy a day pass as well.

My favourite way to start the day is with a healthy breakfast; smoothie and oatmeal!
– Pieces of Coconut
– Protein powder
– Fruits: raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, etc.
– 1 teaspoon flax seed
*You also have to add a liquid to make the smoothie; I prefer to use coconut rice milk.
I usually use Provamel and buy it at EKO Plaza, which is:
√ 100% Natural Ingredients
√ Free of additives
√ Free from added sugar
√ Gluten free
√ Wheat free
√ Lactose free
√ Certified Organic
Most of the time I use fruit out of the freezer so it’s pretty cold, another way to achieve this is by adding ice cubes.
I love the taste of coconut, you get that tropical feeling & it tastes very nice!
I received a package with the Best Bronze self-tanning spray, 2 scrub soaps, moisturizing cream and Luminate spray for hair and body.
It is easy to apply, but you have to know exactly how you need to apply the product.
If you apply the spray on your face, use the gloves you receive with it. Spray on the gloves first and then rub it evenly over your face.
I was very happy with the result and people commented that I look healthy brown! It gives a golden natural brown colour and held for 2-3 days.
The smell is not very pleasant, so that is the only not positive thing.

The Luminate hair and body spray gives a beautiful golden glow on your body. This is a good product to use in a swimwear photo shoot or for a party. The shine / glitter is very subtle, I don’t like to much glitter, you don’t want to walk around like a christmas tree 😛
Please take care to spray evenly over your body.
♥ Say yes to new adventures ♥
I wish everybody a sunny & positive weekend!
With lots of love,
