Fitness and Adventure Weekend
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 6.00pm and straight out for a local run or walk to the beach – lovely! Or just join us a little later in time for a welcoming evening meal at 7.30pm.
Boosted by a delicious smoothie drink, we start with a morning run and wild sea swim at our local beach, then back to the lodge for hearty 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 “power walk” along the inspirational coastal trail followed by an enjoyable yoga class with a specialist teacher. You can take things at your own pace and the run or walk can be a longer or shorter distance depending on your own needs, so this is fully flexible.
For your morning fitness boost we suggest a dance workshop or another run to the beach. After breakfast we will head off for an exhilarating Surfing adventure at one of our beautiful surfing beaches. A short stretching workshop on the beach beforehand to loosen everyone up and surfing is a fantastic and fun way to enjoy a great full body workout! Over lunch back at the eco lodge we will debrief and provide suggestions for continued fitness improvement.
After lunch we recommend a trip to our nearby Ivybridge Spa for a massage and use of spa facilities for those who want an indulgent finish to their weekend. It's best to book this beforehand so do let us know regarding the massage and spa. This cost is not included in the weekend and will be payable directly to the Spa. Massages from £30.
