Choosing the Retreat that is right for you is not a quick decision to make, it’s likely that you will have a lot of questions to help you make the right choice for you. Here are some of our most frequently asked questions that might be helpful
Who comes to The Body Retreat?
Women from all ages, backgrounds, fitness levels, from all around the UK, Europe and Middle East and beyond choose to join us at The Body Retreat. Women just like you join us for a variety of reasons – to improve their fitness, to lose weight, improve their health or simply just to get away from the daily grind take time for themselves and challenge themselves to regain control of their health and well being.
Whatever your reason for coming to a Body Retreat, we will ensure that you achieve the most out of your experience.
How do I decide which retreat is best for me?
Think about what you would like to achieve and how much time you have to spend with us. You may want to begin your journey to getting the body you want, or perhaps you feel like you are running on empty and need to rebalance? Perhaps you would like to experience something completely different. We are more than happy to guide you through the choices to help you make the best selection. If you are pregnant, have a lymphatic disorder or unmedicated high blood pressure, some retreat activities will not be suitable for you.
What is included in my Body Retreat stay?
Everything you could possibly need is included in the price of your stay. As you will see on our website, it includes, in addition to your accommodation, and full days scheduled activities all your meals and snacks, drinks, master classes in nutrition and behvaiour, one complimentary massage* professional instruction in all activities, even a goodie bag on arrival and a packed lunch on your last day.
It is quite simply the best value of any luxury health and fitness resort. For full details, please refer to the What’s Included button. There are also a few “extras”, should you wish to have additional treatment during your stay or have a 1-2-1 session. All supplements are clearly indicated there is no misleading small print.

How intense are the retreat packages?
We are here to help encourage, motivate and support everyone to achieve their best. We want to help you achieve the results you want, we also want you to enjoy yourselves and leave feeling rejuvenated and motivated. Each package is specially designed to achieve a goal, whether that be weight loss, improved fitness, a rebalanced body and mind or a cleansed digestive system. There may be times we you feel a little tired but you will never feel you cant do it, our courses are designed to have balance each and every day and rest, relaxation and reflection are important parts of every Body Retreat.
What do I need to bring?
Once you have booked we will send you a full kit list for all of The Body Retreat events, however the most important things to bring are an open mind, the desire to get stuck in and a sense of humour.
Will I be fit enough to keep up in the Exercise element of the retreats?
Our personal service starts before you even come to The Body Retreat, all enquires and bookings are followed up by either Julie or Juls by telephone call. This way both we and you can be sure you are booked on the most appropriate retreat. All our Body Retreat events are designed so that you can work at your own pace. As we keep our groups small you get personal attention so you do not need to struggle at the back, or feel ashamed to speak out. Our instructors will be offering alternatives at all times while at the same time encouraging you beyond you’re comfort zone.
Do I have to share a room?
No you don’t have to share, you can choose to have a single occupancy room, however a lot of our clients do come on their own and are happy to share a room with one other. You may find you are glad of the extra motivation to get you going.
Do I have to take part in all of the activities on the Retreat?
All of our retreat programmes have been carefully designed and structured to provide the optimum results based on our three core pillars, Exercise, Nutrition and Behaviour. Each retreat varies in the emphasis placed on each pillar. Often activities, classes or workshops are designed to be cumulative and so we encourage you to attend all activities to ensure you gain maximum benefit. Before we confirm any booking we will speak with each client to be sure they are planning to attend the retreat that is right for them. Once on retreat you are treated as an individual and our team will ensure that any individual circumstances are taken into consideration.
What happens if it rains?
We have a very varied schedule of events, so while we love to be outdoors in the fresh air we use indoor areas when able to. But we believe little water won’t hurt so we try to keep to our schedule where possible.
What if I have a food intolerance?
If you have a food intolerance or allergy then you have come to the right place. We cater for all dietary requirements, Juls has years of training and personal expense of creating healthy nutrias and varied dishes that support all retreaters.
Will I be hungry all the time?
At all Body Retreat events you will eat every 2 – 3 hours to keep your metabolic rate high and stop you feeling hungry. This is also the key for stabilising your blood sugar which in turn becomes you way of eating for life. Check out our Food and Nutrition button for more detail about what you will eat.
