Tum In Spain

felt as if I’d just swanned in on a five-star break. The villa was set in the
most beautiful surroundings with spectacular views and glorious sunshine,’
writers Kat Perriam. ‘Far from camp beds ranked in dorms, the rooms were en

‘From the 7am start every day for an hour
of interval hill training, our time was regimentally scheduled. Each of the six
or so daily sessions incorporated a new workout, and the constant change in
activity meant that the days certainly didn’t drag. It was tough and the week

‘The guys at Trimmer You have managed to
find a perfect middle ground between a wellness retreat and a hardcore fitness
camp. Loading us with recipes, menu plans and exercises to continue the good work
at home. Trimmer You Spain isn’t just a bootcamp, it’s a lifestyle change.’
