The 38ºN 2016 season is off to a flying start with the succesful completion of our UK Easter retreat at the gorgeous Spread Eagle Spa Hotel in the South Downs.
It was great to see so many familiar faces, along with some new faces from clients and the training team. 3 nights and 4 days of training and spa time translated into plenty of smiles and plenty of high tempo action.
We kick started with a double fitness test in the medieval banqueting hall, followed by circuits and our 4×4 Tabata drills – all before lunch…
Through the weekend we blasted through amrep circuits, half ton circuits, Insanity workouts, core conditionng, kickboxing, power ballet, runs, a hike (thankfully dodging the rain) and of course, massages.
On Easter Sunday our own 38ºN spin on an Easter Egg hunt drew comparisons with the Hunger Games, it’s fair to say everyone earned their chocolate. A new first as well, we’ve never seen anyone eat a Creme Egg while powering through their final set of squat jumps…
The food (and gin!) was exceptional and we even had our own ghostly goings on (well the Spread Eagle is the oldest surviving coaching inn in the country).
Everyone left feeling fitter, and set up to continue the good work with a coaching call to follow.
It was a great way to start 2016, and we kick off in Ibiza next Sunday with our first Optimal Fitness of the season. We’ve also got our female only (and female trainer led) Body:ReSet, DNA Fitness, Juice Cleanse retreats and more, plus there’s our May Luxe retreat at Verdudra in Sicily.
It’s going to be a busy summer, we hope to see you soon for some serious training and serious fun.
