The Heartland is a wonderful place to relax, kick start a healthier lifestyle, challenge yourself, learn, or all of the above. There are many exercise classes to choose from throughout the day led by knowledgeable, encouraging, and enthusiastic (but not TOO enthusiastic) staff, or you can just hang around the comfortable farmhouse and beautiful property. I found the food to be very enjoyable with good presentation, but not overly elegant. There is a huge range of spa services available, but to me the highlights were the exercise classes, the informative presentations, the reasonable and tasty meals, and the wonderfully helpful and sociable staff.
