We’re now well into our Ibiza 2017 season and we wanted to share with you some key things you can expect when joining our retreats – that will transform the way you train, eat and live!
These FIVE LEARNINGS are the essential pillars of what we teach and feedback from clients says it shines through in everything we do. It’s our passion for sustainable wellness that sets us apart from the ‘bootcamp’ style fitness holiday. Plus you get to stay in luxury beach side accommodation – with sea views, incredible food, first class service, free wifi, spa treatments and not a room share in sight!
So dive in to discover the FIVE things you’ll learn at our retreats that makes us different….
1) HOW TO STAY MOTIVATED WHEN LIFE GETS IN THE WAY.
Our big focus isn’t just to help you blast fat, get fit and have fun – it’s about giving you the tools and knowledge to go home and continue to make positive changes in your life.
Not only will the training be varied, effective and fast, but during our Mindset Workshop, we’ll share the hints and tips we’ve used with hundreds of clients (and ourselves) to stay on track and smash goals.
‘Mind fitness’ is an essential pillar to our retreats because it’s super important clients understand that changes to the body start with the way we think. And it’s not just experience that gives the core team an insight into how to stay motivated – James holds a degree in psychology and a masters in applied psychology, Rob was a senior NCO in the British Army for many years and Claire is an NLP practitioner, life coach and former business coach for Microsoft.
2) YOU CAN’T OUT-TRAIN A BAD DIET
It doesn’t matter how hard you train, if your diet is full of sugar, fat and processed food, your progress will be slow, if at all. Your dream body is made in the kitchen, not just in the gym, but we understand it can be a minefield. That’s why we run a Nutrition Workshop with Anna our Nutritional Therapist on every retreat. The lovely Anna gives you a whole heap of information, tips and tools to make the ‘right’ choices that will compliment your training. You can also request a one on one session with her for a more in-depth look at your lifestyle and nutritional needs.
3) YOU CAN HAVE BALANCE
You do not have to be ALL or NOTHING. We teach you how to stay fit, healthy and looking good, while maintaining balance in your life. We don’t kill ourselves every day at the gym and so we wouldn’t expect you to. We show you how we, in our late thirties and mid forties are in the best shape of our lives, without skipping the ‘naughty’ meals out, wine and chocolate. Denial leads to extreme behavior – a bouncing backwards and forwards. And that doesn’t make for a happy person!
4) YOU DON’T NEED LOADS OF TIME TO GET RESULTS
We get bored easily and imagine you do too. We’re also busy people and were in the corporate rate race in London until six years ago. We know the stresses, strains and time constraints so we make sure we give you ‘realistic’ ways to get maximum results in minimal time. You can do it when travelling, before the kids get up or in the park at lunchtime….no equipment needed!
5) WEIGHT DOESN’T MATTER
We don’t advocate ‘weight loss’ – but we do encourage fat loss – as long as it’s healthy and one of your goals. Weight isn’t a good indicator of progress. But fat loss is. Muscle weighs more than fat, so it could be that as you get leaner and tighter, your weight stays the same or goes up. That’s why we never weigh ourselves! We’ll help you understand that the way you look and feel is the best measurement of success!
Here’s what some of this year’s clients have said:
“Great workouts, fun times. Attended the Easter bootcamp in Ibiza with about 20 people. The workouts were hard but fun and there was no pressure to do more than you wanted to. Everyone was encouraged and motivated but if a particular session wasn’t for you then that was pool time! People wanted different things out of the break in addition to exercise – me time, health kick and others (like me!) some fun in the evenings. Great to meet new people and new friends. Will definitely return and cannot recommend it highly enough. Claire, James and Rob are great trainers and fun to be around – not so much love for the bleep test……” Victoria, April 2017
“You’re mind, body, and soul will thank you for it. Fantastic, energising, mind blowing weekend of sun, fun, and exercise. We met new friends, set personal goals and broke them, jumped, pumped, slammed and stretched, and it felt good. What was really awesome, as well, is that we became yoga converts, all thanks to the lovely instructor, Anna. 38 Degrees North Rocks!”, Dee, April 2017
