Fish SectionToday was one of those great days when you can see a difference. Looking around you can see that people’s bodies are changing, they are becoming more physically capable and mentally the group is on big buzz. Everyone is so motivated there is one goal and we are all going forward together to reach it as a team.

I always think the best form of motivation is when it comes from within which is called intrinsic motivation opposed to extrinsic which means it comes externally. I can remember once watching an international football match and the commentator talking about the national coach saying “if he did have a weakness it would be is ability to motivate a team”. Personally I think that’s a little bit worrying because you should always feel motivated to play for your country and really it should be an honour.

However we don’t have any problems here at FitFarms because people have usually saved their hard earnt money to be with us, taken holiday time from work and on this occasion jumped on an aeroplane to be with us. We as a team are definitely honoured that you did all that to join us for a week, thank you!

First up this morning was a session by the pool with Georgia stretching out those muscles making everyone agile for the day. Then we went into some high intensity exercise which was tough in the heat but very rewarding for everyone.

In the afternoon it was the nutrition workshop which was taken by our in house nutritional therapist Lesley Harper. Nutrition science changes on a daily basis so this one is always a real eye opener. It was loved by all!

Pool workouts were the main event in the afternoon which was tailored to the individual so everyone could work out at the correct fitness level for their ability.

We ended the day by going to the local fish market to select some local Mediterranean fish for the guests. We went for a meaty white fish similar to hake and red snapper. What a culinary delight!
