Weight Loss Camp Day Activities Report by Andy - 4 Sept 2014
Thursday really feel like a wind down day here, for us anyway! The clients still have a full day ahead of them, with Zumba, yoga, cookery workshop, 6 mile walk around Chatsworth,badminton spinning and rebounding a last blast workout and bokwa all before 5pm but not in that order. But it's a wind down for us because there are a couple of classes taken by external instructors which gives us chance to get ready to move down to Dorset first thing tomorrow morning.
I think on Thursdays we could easily cram a weeks worth of exercise into one day and the clients would take it with a smile (of sorts) on their faces, it's the last day and nothing can break their spirits today, not to mention the fact that when you've done so much exercise through the week so far however much we cram into one day would seem achievable in their new mindset. All that is left to do in the evening is congratulate them on a job well done, especially those that have finished 2 weeks of constant exercise!
I'm not sure how we are supposed put into words the sheer achievement and respect these girls have earned for their efforts and so at a loss for words we can only hope that from the looks in our eyes and the beaming smiles on our faces they will know how proud we are of their efforts. As for the rest of the group from both the seven and four night courses I don't want it to feel like we are undermining their own efforts because at FitFarms everyone is an individual and each individual has earned the upmost praise and admiration however long their stay but as their mentor I feel it is necessary to reiterate how proud I am.
On a final note for this week I would just like to say it's been a real pleasure working with such a group of interesting people yet again here at Matlock and it has put me in a fine mood for our third and final week down in Dorset.
