Can't believe how wonderful I feel after just one week. Not sure what I expected, but know I really appreciated the standard and sincerity of the staff. It seems as everyone is on your side in aiding on your flagging limbs. What impressed me is that at no time did I feel bullied in any of the activities, just encouraged and supported by staff and other guests on the course to go just that bit further. At the end of the week they compare your weight, measurements, muscle and body fat readings, which I anticipated and dreaded in equally. I was so surprised and delighted with the results, I thought I would have had to be starved and flogged to have achieved the results I achieved. Instead I had eaten healthy substantial meals, snacked on fruit and had active days that were tailored to my level of fitness, to achieve in one week what I had been trying to reach since Christmas (not saying which one).
My special thanks to Mel who is always on hand to make you feel capable and who shepherds you along the way. Cannot forget the lush, laid back hiking guide David, who was a real pleasure to hike with. Maybe the most surprising for me was my sessions with Lissa the life coach, I'm a convert.
All in all one of those experiences that I have every intention of repeating.
