Clubercise and Strict Fitness at Weight Loss Camp Day

Our final full day started off with a bang with Kim coming back on site to do clubercise. A new type of class which is not as technically demanding as dance or zumba but has a club atmosphere with glow sticks to get us motivated for the rest of the day. We then went into our program workshop. Our last part of strict exercise with our resident trainers however this session has a bit of a twist. We split the group into smaller teams and they each have to plan a 15 minute session for the whole group. It can include anything from boxing, mteafit, tabatta, relays, agility, cardio, HIIT, aerobics literally any type of exercise we have covered over the week. This is a fundamental part of the week and allows people to see just what they have learnt and understood from the week. Like the saying goes give a man a fish and he will eat for a day but teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime. This is what we here at Fitfarms want to do. Not only is it just about the results in the week but we want clients to leave with better understanding of exercise and its benefits.

We finish the day off with yoga. This is one class that everyone wants to start adding to their exercise portfolio when they get home as this is a great way to take some time for themselves and destress. Stress is one of the biggest health risks in the western world. A study in America showed that the majority of all first time heart attacks happen on a Monday morning between 8am and 10am from people on their way to work. We live in an ever quickening society where we have to literally run to stand still and all that stress plays havoc on our mental and physical health. A phenomenal pain and rehabilitation specialist, John E. Sarno did some amazing research with clients who had back and neck pain but could not find any physical ailment to cause it. After working with them to relieve stress their pain subsided and in many cases stopped. Things like yoga, meditation, pilates, relaxing stretch sessions are vital to keep the mind relaxed and help you keep your body in an optimum state for health and well being.

This special blog post report is what happened in one of our recent Fitfarms fat camp weeks as reported by one of our instructors.
