Deborah Foy, a regular at New You Escapes, has recently returned from a fitness retreat in Tarifa, Spain. We caught up with her and asked her how it went!
“It was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. I Loved every minute.”
“This question makes me laugh because yes tough, but enjoyable tough. As the week went on and the aches came, the classes were harder to do, but the way I see it as we were all in it together – all us boot campers so we all found it hard together. Funny moments were when we’d be all stretching before a work out and there would be lots of ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhhhhhhhhs’ coming from every one of us!”
“The instructors and staff were absolutely there for us all the way from the moment we arrived. Yusumi the manager made us feel so welcome and that anything was not a problem. The two PTs made the work-outs hard and fun, and were really motivating, even let us have a bit of banter with them. They set up some fantastic work-outs for all abilities and it was a case of push yourself to your own fitness level.
The nutritionist – I’ve been going for a few years now and I always learn lots of new things.
The chef – wow the food was so yummy and everybody wanted his healthy recipes!”
“Wow wow. Set in the middle of no-where in the Spanish countryside; beautiful setting, fantastic rooms, lovely pool, relaxation areas with pretty gardens. Undercover work out areas for those that don’t want the sun. We had fantastic weather whilst there every day.”
“My memorable part was getting up early grabbing a lovely herbal tea and doing run circuits with everybody and passing each other motivating each other, it felt like a little family after a few days.”
“If you’re not sure, just go for it. Don’t feel odd going on your own as first time I went I was so scared. Great way to meet new people, get fit, loose weight, grab sun and my quote is: I know why it’s called New You Escapes as it was an escape just for me away from everything. I felt amazing after and like a new person. It’s a total reboot.”
