About Carter (taken from his blog above and written by Lucy his mom )

Carter is an outgoing, confident and sociable little boy who always does what he’s told and is genuinely never naughty! Carter is popular with his school friends and his teachers, who say ‘Carter is a happy, bright and chatty little boy who is always keen to talk. He has a caring nature and a sense of injustice so will always try hard to resolve conflicts.’

Full of energy and happiness from the minute he wakes up, he really enjoys horse riding, swimming, soccatots, riding his bike, crab fishing, driving the boat and playing on our favourite beach in the world – North Sands Beach, Salcombe. Carter is also an avid fan of Spiderman, Batman, Paw Patrol and Scooby Doo! But his most favourite thing is probably running – he is so fast that he won ALL 3 races in his school sports day last July!

Carter is a brilliant little brother to his sister Monica and happily allows her to boss him about, dress him up, put make up on him (!) and make him participate in dance marathons! Just such a sweet natured, gentle little boy…

We all work so hard for our children to be happy, fulfilled and enjoy care free lives so it really is every parent’s worst nightmare to be sat down and told that their child is seriously ill. On the 11th January this year we received the devestating diagnosis that our gorgeous little boy Carter has Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia and the road ahead is 6-9 months of intensive treatment followed by 3 years of maintenance treatment. Suddenly your whole life stops in its tracks. However, with the amazing work of the Oncology Consultants and nurses of Birmingham Childrens Hospital, his prognosis is very good at 90% success and this is all we focus on…

During these events we will train you just like we do on our fitness holidays ( although we miss out the aqua ! )

There will be a welcome chat and then an itinerary of classes and clean food refreshments, a chance to discuss your fitness and nutrition needs with the trainers and any goals you may have heading towards the end of 2015 and new year.

An event like this is great for your motivation and mind set. You will feel ready to take on the world!!

All levels of fitness welcome .

Price just £30 including refreshments . Bookings in advance to reserve your place please. Spaces are limited to 25 persons

They are so much fun , don’t miss it . We love these events. “Feel like I have had a real treat” Is the reaction from participants!

How To Feel Beach Ready

June 28th, 2016 | Posted by Gail in NEWS - (Comments Off on How To Feel Beach Ready)

Are some of you are thinking about putting in preparations for ‘The Beach body?’

 

Beach Body Fit

Hey so what! We are not looking or feeling like a supermodel yetand yes there is always going to be someone sitting by that we admire their shapely legs,flat tum whatever.

We are what we are after trying to follow a healthy and fun lifestyle,so enjoy that holiday.

I have made a list of just seven things you can do to feel nice on the beach leading up to that well hard worked for/earned much needed holiday.

1) I know I have banged on about it before and you should have been doing it all along. DRINK LOTS OF WATER.If you struggle to drink the required average 2 litres then try replacing your hot drinks with hot water and a slice of lemon.This can help speed up a sluggish digestive system, eliminate toxins,clean internal waste and give you more energy and the big one.A flatter tum!

2) Practice your posture.Good posture makes you appear taller and slimmer.Focus especially on sitting posture.Correct sitting helps the digestive system and reduces the chances of becoming bloated.You will also be keeping the tummy and back strong after those weeks of fab abs workouts

3)Find a good healthy eating plan and ditch the Caffeine,Refined foods,Processed and alcohol they will all sabotage fat loss.

4)Ditch the foods that retain water,grains like bread,rice,pasta,cakes and biscuits.These foods tend to hold water in the gut. Being an IBS sufferer for years and learning to control it by not eating my trigger foods which for me one being not eating fruit after a meal.Keeping food diaries you can see what maybe your bloated trigger foods.

5) Workout wind up.So you are busy packing for the family,no time to fit that workout in? Wrong! If you have trainers get them on and do 15 mins of power walk intervals the road.

Jog or sprint intervals down to the end of the street and back or around the garden.
We can almost all of us find a 15 minute break twice in the day so be ready mentally and get down on a 15 minute mini circuit quickly moving from squats

6)If you do find yourself with a free hour for a class or personal training session,try an hour of Yoga,it will de stress you with all that last minute preparation lower your cortisol levels, leave you feeling super toned and teach stress busting techniques you can easily use 10 minutes each morning whilst you are away to set you up for the day during your holiday.

7) Finally relax and enjoy.Worry and anxiety about how we shape up compared with the next supermodel on the beach is not what health and fitness is all about.Kick back,chill and you are far more likely to be more active than when you are focusing totally on being Elle Macpherson or Matthew Mconaughey.Get up play with those beach balls,walk along the sand and make a splash.You have arrived.
