When it comes to achieving the body and fitness they want and deserve, too many women still think they need to follow the old adage of “Eat Less, Move More”… or how about “No Pain, No Gain”. At The Body Retreat, we cringe when we hear these terms… because they sound so austere, so dull…dare I say it .. so masculine!!
We have always maintained that a women’s path to the body and fitness they want is different from men. Not only is our physiology different, our hormones and emotions also play a part in our success as well.
That’s why at The Body Retreat along with our three core pillars of Behavior, Nutrition and Exercise we value R&R… in our case R & R stands for Relaxation and Regeneration. So much is made of the need to do more, achieve more, be more… without R & R this can begin to take its toll.
We believe that the way to not only lose weight, but to maintain a healthy weight for life is to enjoy yourself, have fun, while at the same time take care of yourself. Your body is not a machine, it’s your home and so it is important to value it. We believe that this taking care of yourself works from the inside out but also from the outside in. What you put in your body matters, but so too what you put on your body.
That’s why we are delighted to be partnering with Mama Mio Skincare because they offer perfect skincare products for women who are looking for fit skin for life. Whether your skin concern, is cellulite, stretch marks or dry skin or perhaps you have started to notice that bits of you are not quite as tight as they used to be, Mama Mio have products that fit the bill.
In The Body Retreat office we have been testing the product range for a couple of months now (our favorites are Boob Tube and Lucky Legs …you can draw your own conclusions as to who is using what!!) and can report that what we love about these products is that they really work. A little goes a long way, they smell divine but not too strong and so don’t compete with your own perfume or fragrance. Another huge plus point for us is their NO NASTIES policy that their skincare will never have petrolatum, parabens, SLS, xenoestrogens, pthlalates, synthetic fragrances, artificial colourants.
From February 2014 we will be gifting Mama Mio hospitality products to all our guests on weeklong residential retreats, and we will also be introducing their wonderful spa treatments on selected retreats. At The Body Retreat we have always looked to balance the hard work of our varied programmes with R&R, that’s why all our retreats have spa facilities, why we offer complimentary treatments, why we make sure our retreat locations are of the highest standards so that our guests can relax and regenerate at the end of a busy day. Mama Mio products and treatments are the prefect partners for our R&R programme.
Like Mama Mio we share a common mission in that we want to encourage women to regain confidence in their bodies, whatever their age, shape or weight. When you feel good about yourself you glow, and when you begin to feel that glow your confidence soars.
So whether you are looking to maintain your motivation while you lose weight or to reward yourself for all your handwork, then remember to include some R& R in your life.
Fit skin, healthy body, calm mind. Now that is a maxim worth adopting we think 🙂
