A New Approach to Fitness!

I've recently been appointed nutritionist for a small company offering holistic fitness retreats in Symondsbury (Bridport). It's a pretty exciting appointment for me, as they are trying to break the boot-camp mold by offering training for the mind and body - with emotional support for those making a big change in their lives. To complement this, I will provide some healthy and delicious menus that focus on whole-food rather than the often highly processed, fat free, carb free, taste free fuel that many boot-camps offer. Everything is gluten free too!

As a team, I think we offer an opportunity to adopt a sustainable lifestyle that reaches far beyond the week that you spend with us.

For anyone who would like to try it out for themselves, we're offering a taster day at a bargain price! Information below...


REBOOT Boot Camp Event Day!


We would like to invite you to another REBOOT Event Day - held on Saturday 20th November in Poole, Dorset. We kick off the day at 10am and finish with a leisurely supper at 7pm.

This fun-packed taster day is a great introduction to the unique REBOOT philosophy, for anyone who would like to take part in a future REBOOT week. It could be a great way for those who bonded on a previous REBOOT week to see old friends - or maybe just a great way to spend your Saturday, working up some endorphins in great company?

Our nutritional workshop will teach you how to refuel the body between training sessions with delicious, healthy and easily prepared meals. Mind training is an integral part of the training programme, helping you enhance physical performance and providing tools for success in all areas of your life. There will be sports massage available throughout the day and a session on when to train and when to rest - you service your car, why not yourself?

Food will be provided throughout the day with recipes for you to take away and cook at home.
