Weight Loss Camp Day Journal 6 Dec 2015
Monday is always a great day at Fitfarms, we are all over the initial honeymoon period and every one has settled in well and friendships are starting to be formed. It is also one of our main trips of site as we visit a local cycle track and cycling is a fantastic way of getting back into exercise. With it being none weight bearing it suits people of all abilities even though with injuries who don't enjoy walking as much. With over 1700 cycling clubs affiliated with BritishCycling.org it is an accessible and easy way to burn 300-500 calories in a hour with friends in the outdoors.
After a good morning of cycling it was back to base for an afternoon of nutrition. There are so many conflicting messages out there regarding nutrition, even UK government requirements are based on research over 30 years old which has been proven not to be as beneficial as first thought. With our top BANT registered nutritional therapist we delve into what we should be doing which is not always what we think or have been told we should do.
After a long few days of exercise muscles are stating to get a bit sore and stiff. The evening is finished off by PNF. This is an advanced way to stretch taught by one of our GP referral specialist. It is suitable for all abilities and ages and works on nerve and muscle release to develop muscle flexibility and relieve muscle soreness.
This special blog post report is what happened in one of our recent Fitfarms fat camp weeks as reported by one of our instructors.
