I arrived at Nubeginnings feeling a little nervous and apprehensive about a week away with strangers - these nerves were soon lost when I was greeted by the Nubeginnings team, shown to my lovely room (room 2, a lovely large rom with dual aspect windows overlooking Ilfracombe bay) and gradually met the other guests who I would be sharing this experience with.
In my week at Nubeginnings I lost 8lb, met wonderful and inspiring people, learnt how to effectively combine a family and hectic work life with some 'me' time as well as eat well and exercise.
After yoyoing through many types of diets and various exercise classes I have now got the key skills and knowledge I need to make these things part of every day life and not a chore. The food was fantastic, we loved getting back from our hikes to find what lovely surprises Gary had made for us!
The fitness instructors are second to none, they were fun, motivational and extremely knowlegable and gave us all a sense of self belief because of the encouragement and belief they had in us. I have looked at getting a personal trainer now I'm home but unfortunately with such high standards being set I have yet to find one.
The relaxation sessions were great and as well as my massages I also booked to have additional Reiki sessions - never having had these before I wasn't sure what to expect but was amazed at the positive effect these seesions had. Jenny was great fitting my additional sessions in to an already busy timetable.
For anyone hopping back and forth to the Nubeginnings website and wondering whether or not to book just do it. I wish I had gone sooner as it was the best investment I've made and am now slimmer, happier and more positive.
Have fun and enjoy the inspiration and passion that Nubeginings can give you
