About this trip

This is an exclusive and exciting opportunity for you to be part of a small group of people who will be immersing themselves in a lifestyle to encourage fat loss and live healthily.  You will receive an engaging and motivational week away aimed at: 

• Pushing your exercise boundaries

• Re-setting bad eating habits

• Educating yourself on nutrition 

• Learning how to balance your hormones

• Changing your mindset and behaviour

All of these will be with the focus of reducing body fat and improving overall health. 

Whether you are someone who needs to reset your current habits to achieve a healthier lifestyle and significant fat loss, or someone who is almost there and just needs that extra help to achieve that toned look, this retreat is for you. We will teach you the life tools to reset your behaviours to promote a healthier and balanced lifestyle. Whatever your goals, your exercise and nutrition plan will be personally tailored to your current level and future goals. 

At The Reset Retreat we take a holistic approach as we know that fat loss is not just about eating less and doing more. Other factors such as hormonal balance, mental attitude, beliefs and sleep also all come into play.  We have a team of professionals who are experts across these disciplines to bring you a well rounded and balanced approach.

We understand that fat loss is a long term goal and this won’t be achieved in just the week that you are with us.  So we will be providing you with the tools and knowledge to help you reach your goals after you leave us.  By teaching you science backed life hacks, retraining you out of your bad habits, providing you with the knowledge and motivation to continue when you leave us, we’ll help you achieve your long term goals.

Is this Retreat for YOU?

If the answer to any of the following is 'Yes' this retreat is for you...

· Would you like to start next summer with your body in a better shape than this summer?

· Do you try to look after yourself; you eat quite well and do some exercise, but you’re never quite hitting your fat loss goals?

· Would you like a luxury week away to devote to your health and wellbeing?

· Would you like help to feel confident about your body? 

· Would you like to educate yourself so that you can make your own informed decisions about when and what you eat?

· Would you like to improve your relationship with food and exercise to make it more positive?

· Do you struggle with removing stubborn fat around your belly?  This is often due to hormonal imbalance.

· Do you suffer from other issues that could be caused by hormonal imbalance such as headaches, bloating, fatigue, mood swings, hair loss, low sex drive, trouble sleeping, depression, PMT or acne for example?

· Would you like your body to be more toned?

· Would you like to learn science backed life hacks and recipes for improving your health and physique in the future?

Erica Foggett  Fitness and Wellness Coach  

I’m passionate about helping people to stay active, well and strong for as much of their life as possible. Feeling good and looking good!  Having confidence for life!

I have three sides to my business (fitness, nutrition and wellness) that I am bringing together here to provide you with a unique holistic blend of a nutrient dense nutrition plan combined with a well-rounded exercise programme. I’ve built a team of professionals to knock your socks off who will be helping me get your mind, body and soul refreshed and giving you the kick-start you need to continue with your fat loss and wellness journey.  

I’ll be running some of your exercise sessions, teaching some of the seminars and working with chef James and Tegan to ensure all your nutritional needs are met. I am responsible for ensuring your wellbeing and balance is kept in check whilst trying to lose fat. A happy person is someone who will continue with the changes in the long term.

Rebecca Jones  Clinical Hypnotherapist

My goal is to help you live a happy and healthy life. Taking a person centred approach, I work with you and for you, in partnership, to improve your life. In whichever way you need assisting. I strongly believe that with the right mix of skills and strategies everyone can live the life they want to.

I work with anybody interested in changing their life, in a small way or a more significant one. Just a few examples of this might be reducing anxiety, issues with lack of sleep, desire to manage your weight or even gearing yourself for success in your personal or professional life. It can be working towards something brilliant, or away from something difficult. What is important is that it matters to you and you want to change. 

The aim of hypnotherapy for weight loss is to make you feel confident about your body, change negative thoughts about eating and help you lose weight responsibly without impacting your emotional well-being. By targeting the mind with many powerful suggestion techniques, I can help you develop a positive relationship with food and exercise, which is key to healthy weight loss and long-term weight management.

My clients experience rapid and positive change, and they regain freedom to go on and enjoy the life they want to live.

James Middleton-Burn Award winning acclaimed chef

I have been working with fresh ingredients for more years than I care to remember.

What you'll be eating...

All your food will be prepared for you by our amazing award winning chef James.  There will be no need to lift a finger (unless you particularly would like to be involved).

The menu is being carefully planned from several different angles: 

1) Your menu macronutrients (carbs, protein and fat) will be calculated for a balanced diet and to maximise fat loss and improve muscle tone/hypertrophy, 

2) Your menu will be varied and packed with nutrients to ensure all your nutrient requirements are met to keep you healthy and happy,

3) Your food will taste great - this is why James has been asked to join the team,

4) All the food will be recipes that you can replicate easily at home.  You will be given real food that you can use in your real everyday life.

This is why Erica, Tegan and James will all be planning this together to get the perfect balance for you.  All food will be professionally produced to a high standard.

All ingredients will be fresh and recipes made from scratch.  We can accommodate vegan, vegetarians, pescatarians, meat eaters, gluten free (although not celiac), dairy free, refined sugar free, grain free and many other dietary requirements.  Please ask if you are unsure.

Each meal will be balanced with proteins, fats and carbohydrates.  You will not be deficient in any of these macronutrients.  You will be educated in how to balance these in each of your meals and how to easily gauge your portion sizes.  We will teach you about snacking, pre and post workout foods and everything we teach, we will also make for you to try out.

We will be feeding you delicious foods and explaining why we have planned them for you so that you can learn to design your own food plans in the future.  And everything we teach you will be provided to you in recipe format at the end of your stay.

Most dietary requirements can be accommodated, however, if you have any specific dietary requirements, please check with me at before booking.
