Too Fat to Run Retreat in Greece 2017 (Deposit)
In May 2016 we held our first Too Fat to Run health and happiness retreat on the beautiful greek island of Rhodes with a small group of ladies from our community. I have never had a more fulfilling 7 days in my life, nor laughed or cried as much.
So it gives me great pleasure to announce that….
In Falaraki, from Saturday 13th – 20th May 2017 we have an even bigger and better programme planned for our incredible Too Fat to Run retreat ladies, and after listened to all the feedback we got about costs last year, we are offering a much more affordable (yet incredibly value packed) week long retreat.
So tell me about the retreat location?
We will have the exclusive use of The Rose Hotel with 18 pool facing rooms consist of 2 or 3 single beds for sole or shared use. These beautifully renovated rooms are spacious and all have private balcony or patios looking out onto the pool and the countryside beyond as well as a small refrigerator and tea/coffee making facilities. The en-suite bathrooms have a shower and WC.
The hotel is located in a quiet area of the region and is surrounded by countryside…so there will be no clubbing or pole dancing ha ha, yet we are just a short walk from the sandy beach and the resorts centre. The hotel’s large swimming pool is exclusively for the use of our guests and there are plenty of sun loungers and shady areas for down time and relaxation.
But what about the programme? What will we be getting you to do?
This is not a weight loss bootcamp, although last year most of our women lost weight and gained all sorts of other fab benefits.
There will be exercise throughout the week, lots of running, morning yoga, water activities etc, but there will also be some more creative activities that won’t even feel like you are exercising.
We will once again be working with the fabulous weight loss hypnotherapist Donna Kenny doing daily group hypno and sessions exploring mindset around nutrition and lifestyle behaviours, and you will get the chance to think about and set Big Fat Stupid Goals with Julie before you come home.
We have a range of greek inspired activities and excursions too….so this will feel like a holiday too.
It is really difficult to describe the magic that happens at this retreat, the friendships that are formed, the shifts that occur throughout the week. The main aim we have is to create a safe space to explore the issues which hold you back from being the best version of yourself, and the practical skills needed to get you there.
What kind of fitness do I need?
All we ask is that you are mobile and can walk 5K, being able to run is not a requirement. All levels will be catered for.
And the cost?
£649 sharing one of our triple rooms
£799 sharing our twin rooms
£949 a twin room on your own (these are limited)
Please note Clubhouse Members get 10% off the cost of this retreat, you can become a Clubhouse Member for £59 for the year here
Flights must be paid for separately, and we can advise on the cheapest and best times from a range of UK airports
The price illustrated includes accommodation, food (except 2 lunches), all coaching, group hypno sessions, a full fitness, programme, excursions and a TFTR goody bag
Don’t worry about coming on your own, none of the ladies knew each other last year, and many of them are now great friends, traveling up and down the country to visit each other for races and social occasions. We will pair you up with someone fabulous and at the same fitness level as you…so you can moan about the same aches and pains ha ha
What did the women say about last year?
This is what one lady said, when I asked the question what you lost and gained.
*9 friends (the other 6 ladies and 3 ‘staff’)
*A real plan for how I’m going to make some sustainable changes in my life – no crash diets, no fads, a lifestyle that will stay with me and without obsessing about food or denying myself I know I’ll get to the size I want to be
*A reignited love of yoga
*Huge gratification from helping the others with their confidence in running and in life
*Some fantastic new recipe and meal ideas
*The need to overeat (even when it’s food I love)
*The belief that I’m meant to be fat and can’t change it
*An ‘all or nothing’ mindset when it comes to food
*3.5 inches off my waist
*1.5 inches off my hips
*No more Diet Coke, haven’t had one and don’t fancy one.
You can check out a review of the week here – Do remember though we have changed location this year to make it more affordable, so no infinity pool I’m afraid 🙁
