Weight Loss and Fitness Retreat Derbyshire

73857706-1a14-4ec9-9c04-804dd469264eThe FitFarms Derbyshire weight loss and fitness retreat was one of the most successful weeks we had leaving a real buzz among the customers that joined us at the Matlock fitness retreat. The course started on the 16th August and completed on 23rd August and as per usual we ran courses starting from 2 nights and going up to and including 7 nights.

This weight loss and fitness camp was very different towards the end of the programme. Those who have joined us before will probably remember that we usually finish the week with a walk down to a local leisure centre giving customers the opportunity to take part in Badminton and swimming. The main reason for the trip to the local leisure centre is to build confidence so when people go home they will feel comfortable in using the local facilities in their area. This week we changed the fitness schedule so the leisure centre trip was on the Wednesday and the finale to the week was a traditional retro school sports day.

The Sports Day was fantastic covering all the old style school sports day exercises like egg and spoon race, the sack race, team relays, throwing compettion and tug of war. There were four teams red, yellow, green and blue and the games were competitive with an undertone of laughter.

Earlier in the week the weight loss retreat programme had a lot more team building exercises which bonded the group together making the course in general more fun and upbeat. Hula Hooping was the highlight! Trying to pass hula hoops around a joined circle of people was great fun and enjoyed by everyone. Hula Hooping does sound just a bit of fun but with weighted hula hoops it proves to be a great aerobic exercise and is also a good core workout.  Weighted Hula hoops can be bought online amazon and type in weighted fitness hula hoops.

FitFarms weight loss and fitness schedule

darwin lakeThe FitFarms residential weight loss and fitness retreat programme has never looked so exciting with new exciting and challenging exercise like HIITSTEP to a retro sports day including old favourites like the sack race, relays  and egg and spoon race.

The FitFarms weight loss and fitness retreat promises to be challenging but always manageable. Below is the first two days schedule which is going to be fun and challenging.

It all starts off when guests arrive at 5.00 pm by car or by opting for the FitFarms fitness retreat free transfer service from the local station.

Then at 6.00pm there is a welcome talk that is taken by Louise where she puts guests at ease and goes through the schedules and general information on the programme. This is followed by an ice breaker workout which is an introduction to aerobics. We then go into Dinner which has been created by Dean the FitFarms chef. Dean served a delightful salmon with cherry tomatoes and kale dish wish was well received by the guests.

The First Day at the holistic weight loss boot camp

It’s an early start at 6.00pm for the individual health assessments which take approximately 10 minutes per person covering body fat, weight, basal metabolic rate, mass muscle density and body mass index. Then we are into breakfast followed by circuits and HIITSTEP taken by Louise.

It’s then a well deserved lunch which is Italian meat balls or falafel for the vegetarians. We choose they dishes because they are what’s called complete protein which means they both hold the 9 essential amino acids the building blocks to protein.

The afternoon is always looked forward to as we do the first walk which takes around 3 hours through the local forest. Then we have a post walk stretch followed by dinner and the last exercise session of the day being kettlebells. It’s a quick herbal tea and then a tired hop into bed as everyone looks forward to the next day.
