I went to NuBeginnings to write a blog post about it, I've been struggling with my weight for a long time and it's a place I'd always wanted to go to. I'll link to my blog post which has loads of photos of the food, facilities, my bedroom, and the local area, but in case this gets removed - just... More

As a whole, I can not say enough good about this place, a few months on and it continues to have changed my life for the better. I have now lost in total 34lbs. I still have 20 to loose but I am over half way and I am so proud of myself that it keeps me going. One thing... More

I'm going to say exactly what I told the management after my stay...as a holiday break this was really good...excellent fitness team, excellent massage therapists and lovely location. However, for me it fell short of the five star experience I expected. Maybe I should have managed my expectations and not got overly excited by the marketing blurb on the website...that... More

Dear Xena, Thank you for your review of your stay at NuBeginnings. As the owner of NuBeginnings I have spoken to you in person to try and provide further support to help you make the life changes you want.

Fast approaching my seventieth birthday and with an ever expanding waistline, I decided to book a week at NuBeginnings to see whether anything could be achieved. I am so glad I did: it was a completely life changing experience and has given me much more than the loss of three kilos in weight. The exercise regime was challenging but each... More

When I hit the big 5-0, I vowed to take myself out of my comfort zone at least once a year. My recent one week stay at NuBeginnings certainly means I've achieved that this year! When I was faced with "the triangle" on the first full day (which involves running up a VERY steep hill as fast as you can),... More

I am gong to keep this as short and sweet as I can... In a nutshell, I can only but highly recommend the NuBeginnings experience. I stayed between April 17th and 24th and left there 11.5 lbs lighter, fitter and incredibly driven. I have in the meantime lost just over 30 lbs and am nearing the overall weight loss target...

My first experience of NB was back in August 2014 , I was so nervous and very low in self esteem. I didn't have far to travel(only 7 miles!) but it seemed the longest journey of my life getting there.
