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.
