Where do I begin?! Nubeginnings has been such a fantastic experience, a really enjoyable stay. Jennie and Dave are very welcoming and friendly, and the rest of the team are also lovely. Kieran and Adam, the fitness instructors, know how to push you to perform to your best, but in a very friendly and encouraging way. The exercise classes were... More

I was feeling so so low before i came here. No motivation to eat well or exercise. I have been struggling with my weight for years, and tho place came highly recommended. I also have chronic psoriasis, so really need to sort my diet, and fitness out. Everyone was just so nice, and so motivating. The hikes were challenging for... More

I had thought for a long time whether this would be the right approach, it's certainly not cheap compared to many boot camps. But to call it a boot camp is to do it a disservice because not one voice is raised to get you to reach your potential. Did I lose weight in a week? Yes, more than I... More

It was with some trepidation that I set off for Nubeginnings as a not overweight but very unfit 62 year old! I needn't have worried - everyone was warm and welcoming and my room and shower room were absoutely delightful. The food was all absolutely delicious and served in a beautiful dining room. Meals weren't huge but were augmented by... More

I felt as if I was on holiday the whole time I was here; plus I felt as if I'd been on one when I got back - minus the suntan! Dave and Jennie are the nicest couple you could ever meet; they adapted some of the activities to suit my poor energy levels. There was an excellent variety of... More

In my experience, extreme measures to lose weight and get fit (e.g. intense exercise programs and massively restrictive diets) can only be maintained short-term. Ironically, every time I fall off the extreme diet/exercise wagon, I end up heavier than I was before and less inclined to exercise! I came to NuBeginnings in December just as I was losing enthusiasm for... More

Thank you for sharing your story. It is of course brilliant that you lost so much weight in your two week stay. The best thing though is that you recognise the changes that have been made due to the Hypnosis, acupuncture and NLP therapies. That's why you are now finding it easy to take good care of yourself.
