Sunday morning starts very early at 6.30am with measurements. We test everyone individually for body fat percentage, actual body weight on scales, hip and waist measurements with a tape measure. On the FitFarms fitness camp courses we explain to the guests that we try not to focus on the scales because it’s not a true indication of how healthy you are weight wise and people can become obsessed making them a slave to the scales.
Next up is breakfast and today was scrambled eggs and a salmon sauce on the wholemeal bread which was absolutely yum! Straight after breakfast we went into an introduction to aerobics which was taken by the new FitFarms dance instructor Jason Broadway. Jason is immensely talented and before FitFarms he use to be a presentation dance instructor for Fit Pro!
Then to balance the exercise programme we go into resistance training which is taken by the smiley Georgia. She covers all the techniques in detail to make sure everyone is going to be safe as we progress during the week.
Two members of the health team go on a run to risk assess a walk which goes from the villa to the port and along the seaside to a beach area. This walk is a popular one because it gives the guests a chance to see the local area.
Whilst on the run the group are in the swimming pool listening to some re mix 80′s music whilst bopping to Georgia’s aqua aerobics moves. It’s always a great workout and obviously something we can’t do at this time of the year in the UK so it’s well received by all.
Lunch was Pork or Fish with mashed cauliflower and a mixed herb salad with a squeeze of lemon. In the car park outside the villa there are lemon trees growing so Robert the chef is able to pick them for salads. The guests comment on how fresh and tasty the salad is which is largely to do with the freshness of the juice and local nutty virgin olive oil.
Later on today we have a hike on the mountain range which everyone is looking forward to as it’s quite a spectacle
