This photograph is taken at the top of Dunkery Beakkon which is the highest point on Exmoor in Somerset. The mixed group walk 10 miles and this is the peak of the walk. Just before they hit the peak of the walk there is a very famous hill which is named “The FitFarms Fun Hill”. It’s a tough hill and is a measure of the guest fitness level as they come to the end of the fitness holiday.

Little trampolines are always received well on the fitness camp.
There is not too much pressure on the joints because of the natural give that the trampoline provides.
The exercise is great for fitness helping balance, agility and motor skills. Typically in a class we will have 8 guests on the trampolines so techniques can be analysed and improved.

There is always a little more organising and setting up when the FitFarms fitness camp runs in Spain.
Firstly the fitness retreat team of Zuzana, Ian, Suzanne and Lynnie fly in to Alicante airport from East Midlands and Birmingham airport.
They are met at the airport by Stephen and then into a car and up the pretty Costa Blanca coastline to Javea.
The Spain Fitness Camp is absolutely stunning with villas overlooking a pool which is ideal for workouts and relaxing in the pool between fitness sessions.
The majority of the guest arrive by plane and
The group are as always completely mixed with different sizes, shapes, weights and fitness levels.
There’s a real nervous start because guest are worried that they might not be able to keep with the exercise and weight loss camp programme. The FitFarms way is such that the programme is completely designed to fit around all levels of fitness.
As soon as the Welcome Talk has been completed and guest have tasted Lynnie’s Spanish food then everyone relaxes and we are truly away on the fitness camp.
At the end of the day there are some guest swimming in the pool and taking in the Spanish Villa feeling. I must add the Spanish Villa has a Scandanavian twist inside because the owners are Swedish so it’s decorated in a very tasteful manner.
Well good night everyone and roll on the first whole day of the Spanish fitness camp.

The Weight Loss Camp Breakfast which is high in protein and exactly enough calories carry us through the holistic boot camp day.
Breakfast is usually served between 8 and 9am after the first intensive exercise session. All the meals the guest have at the weight loss retreat has been designed by the camps nutritional therapist. The food is all delicious but most of all nutritious.
