Major Health Improvements Reported At FitFarms Retreats
21 May 2013
A blend of unhealthy diets with a lack of physical activity increase our chances of becoming overweight as we live in a progressively time poor society. FitFarms recognise that a combination of fitness and nutrition enhance our long term decisions. FitFarms retreats have delivered major health improvements including:
• Blood pressure going from high to normal
• Type two diabetes being reversed and guests coming off their medication
• Average body fat loss of 6 per cent
• Average inch loss of 7 inches around the mid-section
• Average long term weight loss over 3 months of 2 stone
Applying both a holistic and non-bootcamp approach, FitFarms fitness retreats operate from three locations in the UK offering 3, 4 & 7 night retreats. Combining high intensity fitness activities with low intensity exercises which enhance the overall fitness experience, FitFarms are the market leaders in the UK. At each FitFarms retreat all guests are given a mentor who continues to follow their progress after the course via the FitFarms@Home 3 month post course programme.
Embarking on a new lifestyle is easier with the help of a team of health experts and professionals who together create exercises, nutritional guidance and workshops all designed to achieve weight loss and an overall healthier long term lifestyle. FitFarms ensure weight loss targets are met in a manageable and achievable manner whilst focusing on the reasons behind weight gain looking into nutrition in a way many customers have never experienced before. FitFarms combines weight loss and the toning of the body via a controlled environment. Following an initial one to one consultation with a life coach and personal trainer you are then welcomed to a variety of exercises designed to suit your level of fitness.
Early starts with intense fitness exercises are complemented in the evenings by workshops and low intensity exercises. These workshops focus on nutrition. Each course also incorporates yoga, pilates, meditation, belly dancing and line dancing amongst other activities which can be carried out at home post retreat.
To maximise the results FitFarms use their own intensity level scale which is based on heart beats per minute (HRS – Heart Rate Scale). The HRS means you are not competing with others which ultimately allow you to feel comfortable with yourself and the surroundings when exercising.
Many visitors to a FitFarm have noted a complete life changing experience which has not only improved health for the long-term but has helped elevate their confidence and wellbeing in all things work and play.
The problem with low calorie diets is that the results tend to be short-term, with many people seeing their weight return to its pre-diet level or even increase when they return to their old dietary habits. FitFarms educate guests on the importance of providing the body with the right nutrients at the right time to ensure that appetite and cravings stay under control.
Three key areas are covered in the workshops; Nutrition, Exercise and Behaviour Change. Exercise workshops run throughout the week and progress with varied subjects allowing you to design your own exercise programme using proven personal training techniques. You will work with the trainers on a one to one basis to devise your programme for ongoing post course use.
FitFarms dates run across 3 UK locations in the Peak District, Somerset and Dorset with prices starting from £599.00 for a 3 Night Weekend Course to £1099.00 for a shared room on a 7 Night Course.
