Weight Loss Retreat Report - Kettlebells at the Fitness Retreat

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

Every day that passes the weather just keeps getting better, still a cold morning but with Ian's cardio kick class to warm them up it isn't long before the girls are down to t-shirts and shorts and sweating out while they practice kicking out.

After breakfast we took the bus down the beach and enjoyed a morning of sun sea and exercise, the girls worked really hard in the first session on team work and intervals , running in the sand and bodyweight exercises on the step as well as a bucket race and some fun and games with a kettlebell... (Those who know me will understand my disgust at the improper use of my kettlebells) but at least the group enjoyed themselves, and as I said they worked really hard!

And after snack they were rewarded by some games on the beach, so the group got split into two and one half played volleyball and the other half played netball. It is inexplicable! The reaction we get from the groups when we include sports and team games as exercise is fantastic they go from shattered to energiser bunnies because they are enjoying themselves and it really emphasises the importance of fun in a routine.

By the end of today the girls are still buzzing, enjoying the regular exercise and variety, enjoying the fresh and beautifully tasty food and really taking on board what fit farms is all about cant wait to see how the rest of the week goes, if the weather continues on like this it should be amazing!
