After a long journey – some travelling from as far as Morocco – we all arrived at the beautiful Alpine Chalet situated at Wagrain, a ski resort deep in the Austrian mountains. After the mandatory welcome and safety brief, the group settled into their accommodation and indulged in their first meal cooked by our awesome chef, Diana. The first morning started with a fitness assessment on the hills. The hills are unavoidable in this area, but even with the extra challenge of the high altitude, the group showed great belief and did amazingly well.
The variation of exercises and activities, which included alpine walking, mountain biking and hill walking, saw the group’s fitness levels rise dramatically over the week. With the knowledge, determination and the fitness levels the group have gained across the week, I’m sure everyone will achieve their short and long term goals. Who knows – we even may see them in the Olympics!
I’d just like to take this opportunity to wish everyone the best of luck in achieving their aims, and I hope everyone enjoyed their week at alpine boot camp as much as I did!
With kind regards from the New You Escapes team,
