Trail running – take in the awe inspiring views from the North Pembrokeshire coastal path, a welcome change from beating the city streets!

What happens on this weekend break?
We have designed an action packed program with plenty of variety, so we can work the whole body whilst having plenty of fun. Nothing is compulsory and you are very welcome to adapt the weekend program according to your own needs.
If you can, arrive for 5.00pm and straight out for a local run to the beach.
Or… join us a little later in time for a welcoming evening meal at 7.30pm
After settling into the lodge we will meet for introductions to your fitness instructor and look at each individual’s aims for the 2 days. We will carry out an assessment and understand the benefits of each activity we suggest for the weekend. We will discuss any adjustments to the program taking into account the weather and sea conditions as well as people’s aims and objectives for the 2 days.
Start with a morning run and sea swim/aqua fit then back to the lodge for healthy breakfast. At 9.00am we go off for an awesome Coasteering adventure at one of our nearby fantastic wilderness locations on the coast. After a healthy lunch, it’s time for a Pembrokeshire Coast Path run or “power walk” along the coastal trail to our local beach at Abermawr, and then back to the ecolodge. We will include high intensity training sessions as we make our way along the coast, stopping at a beautiful cove for circuits or a lovely cliff-top field for stretching out. You can take things at your own pace and go for a longer or shorter distance depending on your own needs, so this is fully flexible.
Enjoy a healthy and hearty well-earned evening meal upon your return.
For the morning we suggest a lively Dance Fitness workshop. After breakfast we will head off for an exhilarating Surfing adventure at one of our beautiful surfing beaches. What a fantastic and fun way to enjoy a great workout! Over lunch we will debrief and provide a training plan for continued fitness improvement.
