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...

Hi Michael, Thank you for taking the time to write your review of your stay. Firstly congratulations on your amazing weight loss results - already almost at your goal. That's great going - bravo! Secondly I remember you and me chatting about your hypnotherapy sessions. You weren't sure how to tell what changes you had made during therapy (if any).... More

Ok I stayed here for a week From Friday 9th January 2015 Friday 16th January 2015. The room I stayed in was nice and clean and I got a bath as well so had a hot bath every night. Generally the surroundings and location was excellent. It was a breath of fresh air going away from the hustle and bustle... More

Thanks for your review Anup. 4.1 Kg loss is fantastic - well done. Even better that you have kept it off. I assume you have lost even more by now. I am glad you enjoyed your room and surroundings and the personalised service. That is indeed what we pride ourselves on. We work very hard to balance the exercise so... More

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. That first week changed my life, the team are fantastic, the mix of therapies , exercises , relaxation, food and... More

Hi Brenda, Thank you very much for taking the time to write about your NuBeginnings experience. I am, of course, delighted that you enjoyed your stay.

I visited NB some while back however I've only just got around to leaving my review. Originally I wanted to see how things went after I left. As I attended primarily for weight loss, I wanted to see what happened after camp. The result is, that I have kept the weight off and I'm still using some of the recipes... 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
