Katie greeted us on arrival with snacks and drinks with a functional training session set in the grounds of the barn house, after a hot and sweaty workout, post steamy hot shower we all gathered in the spacious dining area for dinner. Soy soaked salmon with noodles, slaw & boiled egg, washed down with prosecco (provided by moi!!) and a movie.
An early morning Insanity class in the blistering heat was the perfect way to start the day which was enjoyed by the barn house pool with a core strengthening yoga session in the early evening.
