Our 4th Complete Transformation Retreat to Lanzarote was another fantastic success..

I write this on the way home on the plane, exhausted from the week, but weirdly energised and full of contentment that each of our 9 guests have gotten what they came for and we have yet again over delivered in terms of expectations.

Moving away from what a number says on a piece of equipment (scales) determining your mood and how the 7 days on a retreat has enhanced your life, is always a tough task. I think our progression from our first transformation retreat in terms of delivery of modules, is moving along nicely

I also think we managed to really open our guest’s eyes to the fact that there is more to life than what you weigh and how happy or indeed unhappy it makes them depending on the figure.

Some of the massive shifts our guest’s achievements on our transformation retreat included:

* 7 inches off the waist of a busy mum of 5. (57)

* A young professional lady giving up her vape within the 7 days. Mairead (35)

* A complete reversal of Acid reflux and no need for future use of tablets for a male business owner Gary (63).

* One guest’s skin condition ‘Ecthyma’ completely clearing up within 7 days.

* A busy professional had a 3 ½ inch loss from her hips.

* A guest returning on his third retreat standing on a ‘Stand up’ paddle board having not been able to kneel on the board on retreat one. (The same guest has lost 60Ibs within the year of his three retreats.) Jonathan (53)

* Two guests with severe joint pain reported being pain free by day 5. Michelle (42) and Micheal (62)

* Bloating gone, inflammation and water retention dramatically reduced on each guest.

* Every guest agreed they had learned something valuable about themselves on the retreat.

* No guest ever complained of being hungry as they had plenty of tasty food.

On arrival, each guest is greeted at the airport and whisked away to the villa 10 minutes away in a place called Guime on the island of Lanzarote. Once shown to their room in the villa the fruit punch is served to toast their arrival. Their rooms are dressed with flowers and a welcome pack, helping them settle in and feel right at home in a relaxed environment.

Assessments are taken, lunch is prepared by our amazing team and served by the pool in the sun. An afternoon of relaxation by the pool before we work on some flexibility, mobility and stiffness from the flight in our first Complete Afterburn™ class. We sit down to a delicious home cooked meal after class before going through our first module in nutrition upstairs in our module room.

9 complete strangers coming from completely different backgrounds, quickly become acquainted. It’s always a concern when you have 9 strong personalities living together, that they will get along. In 4 transformation retreats, there’s not been one awkward moment, not one cross word and although there is a strict application process, you just never know.

Day 1 Complete.

______________

So, what did we get up to on our transformation retreat?

6 x Complete Afterburn™ exercise classes

4 x Complete Core Strong™ classes

6 x yoga classes

5 x Complete life coaching modules in the evening

5 x Excursions (Sup’ing, Kayaking/Snorkelling, Volcano trek, Cliff walk, Sunday markets)

When people initially enquire about joining us on retreat, they usually ask these questions, and this may resonate with you.

Will I be able to keep up?

Having had 18 years of experience in the industry, I’d like to think there’s not many more qualified and suited to managing our guests of all different fitness levels and abilities through their workouts.

Do we get time to relax in the sun?

Most afternoons you have to yourself, you can book a massage with our resident masseuse Jimmy, splat on a sun bed, snooze in a hammock, relax in the giant jacuzzi or laze by the pool.

What are the rooms like?

The rooms are to a high level, mostly en-suite and double beds, but we have twin rooms available also.

The best compliment we get at Complete Transformation Retreats is we have always had guests return, some guests have been to 3 of our 4 retreats!

Now that is A LOT of food…

And Yup, each guest lost a considerable amount of weight, and inches. You see you can eat plenty of food, plenty of tasty food at that, and still lose weight. You just need to cover all the bases, you gotta take out inflammatory foods, make sure you are in a calorie deficit consistently, make sure you build lean muscle through lifting resistance, drink the required amount of water and put the effort needed to overload the body so it needs to adapt, if you do all this, you can do nothing but lose weight.

Unfortunately, most people don’t have the patience or the knowledge to follow through with it. On the transformation retreat, you are in a bubble of support and have the retreat crew wrapped around you to help guide, direct and help you through the 7 days, providing you with guaranteed mind and body results at the end of the week.

What determines a good result?

It can mean something different to each guest. Most come on the retreat looking for immediate weight loss and leave having gained so much more than they weren’t expecting.

Some gain confidence, most gain insight, all learn something new about themselves, some gain direction, all de-stress, rejuvenate, re-set and drop inches/weight, guaranteed.

The 3 pre-requisites to come on retreat, you come with an open mind, a positive attitude, and a good work ethic as you will only get out of it what you put in.

Our next retreat is 10–17 March 2019.

Applications will be open on 2 January 2019.

Yours in fitness,
