The first day of FitFarms Spain fitness camp started today with the health team practising Tai Chi on the beach this was followed up by healthy omelette breakfast.
Once breakfast finished the risk assessment on the first walk started. Javea port walk which is probably the most challenging out of all the hikes is simply magnificent. We enter from the port and go straight into a long steep hill that ends at a spectacular view point. The team take in the views and then set off in a circular walk through the montgo mountain range eventually ending back at the port. The walk is signed off by Georgia the health and safety officer as risk free with stunning scenery!
The time hits 11.30am and it’s time to make the first trip to the airport to meet guests at 1pm. The traffic was free flowing all the way and we hit the airport dead on 1pm to meet the first group of guests. The group look a little nervous but extremely excited and are already making friends with each other.
There’s a few guests arriving in an hour so one person waits in a second car to meet and greet. Here at FitFarms we try to be accommodating as possible so we also do one trip into the centre of Alicante to receive a guest from the train station who has travelled from Barcelona. Thank you goes out to Bryan who sat in the front giving perfect directions getting us there swiftly and on time!
The conversation is free flowing as we drive west towards the FitFarms fitness camp villa and one hour later the FitFarms mentors are showing the guests their rooms.
Ninety minutes later and it’s back down the motorway to meet the second group of guests. There’s a late arrival from London Luton due to a delay so a little bit of waiting this time but once we are all together its back to the car for the last journey.
We enter the FitFarms Villa at 9.30pm greeted by Jason the physiotherapist and dance specialist who with the help of Georgia settles the guests into their rooms. The chef has prepared chicken with roasted Mediterranean Vegetables which was a rainbow of colours with a delightful taste.
