I’m so excited! I’ve recently come back from Seville where I’ve been checking out venues for this years Retreat (20th – 27th September) and I am delighted to announce that I’ve found the perfect place!

It’s been very difficult to find somewhere that fulfilled all my very exacting requirements but the ‘Vinca Buenvino’
in the Sierra de Aracena Nature Park has done so (and some!). As soon as I walked into this beautiful country house, I felt as though I was arriving at the home of a favourite relative! Here are some teaser snapshots from memory: swimming in the saltwater infinity pool; walking along ancient drovers paths through the 150 acres of Sweet chestnut and Cork Oak woods. Relaxing in the Spa and dining on the terrace on incredible home cooked food made from fresh local ingredients by the amazing Jeannie Chesterton.

Diets, Speedboats & Exercise

February 11th, 2013

I have decided to take on a few PT clients in Kent(It’s about time) and start a regular weekly exercise class for the lovely Ladies around here and I’m really looking forward to it.

I am also sponsoring and training a fantastic power boat racing team called Team Grey Ghost ensuring that they get in shape for the big race.

I’ve already started working with Team member, Mel Streek teaching him the ways in which his exercise regime will benefit his performance in the race. In the next few months, he will be documenting his progress within a blog, highlighting the importance of good health and a positive attitude towards fitness.

Check out Mel’s blog here

As many of you know, I’m not a fan of diets BUT I have just read Jeannette Jackson’s ‘Drop Zone Diet” and let me tell you, THIS LADY KNOWS HER STUFF!
