What A fantastic June 2016 SoSpa Fitness & Fun Holiday !

October 22nd, 2016 | Posted by Gail in SoSpa Fitness and Fun Holidays | Yoga - (Comments Off on What A fantastic June 2016 SoSpa Fitness & Fun Holiday !)

I can’t describe what fun the June Ftness Holiday was and I can’t believe where the summer went can you !

Here are just a few of the reviews and the pictures from our wonderful week !

I have not long returned from my first (but not the last!) So Spa fitness holiday, and just wanted to say that it was a very wonderful experience, one that I would whole-heartedly recommend as it is such a multi-faceted (proper fully inclusive!) personal reset that almost every girl I know would benefit from. Super results and not just physical, along with fun, sun, much laughter and relaxation too. I tend to value results/progress as a general principle and have done a number of fitness holidays/boot camp type holidays but they don’t compare. I’m home now lighter, brighter, toned and feeling great!. Many inches and pounds lost, and since my return further inches and pounds have peeled off with great ease due to the ‘inside’ training – having eaten so healthily and deliciously too. Thank you So Spa team! Jacqui Lennon June 2016

Happy Birthday So Lean And Clean !

February 24th, 2016 | Posted by Gail in Recipes | So Lean And Clean - (Comments Off on Happy Birthday So Lean And Clean !)

We are soon to celebrate the success of So Lean & Cleans 5th Birthday!
I can’t actually believe it has been operating for so long , with 100’s of clients changing their lifestyle’s and understanding the health benefits of eating clean, it has been challenging at times but a real joy to see clients achieve their results and hear their comments as to hao they can’t believe they have regained the body of their youth!
I am going to share with you my top 10 tips of fat loss ..

10 Top SLAC Tips Fat loss

1: Have you tried fasting?

Research shows that fasting for 17 – 22 hours from your

evening meal until your next meal, really allows the body

to dig into the fat stores & gives the digestive system a break.

E.g You ate Wednesday night at 6pm your next meal will be

11 am on Thursday. The meal you break your fast with.

2: Ditch the dairy and eat green veg at every meal

You will get plenty of calcium & fantastic nutrients

providing you load up on veg.

3: Counting calories/points is NOT essential for fat loss.

Balancing your hormones IS crucial. Stabilising

cortisol & insulin levels is key. Eat clean foods

that minimise the secretion of fat storing hormones.

4: Ditch ALL cereals

ALL contain hidden sugar.

ALL will keep your fat storing hormones doing overtime.

ALL will eventually lead to fat gain.

5: EGGS are Super fuel.

Keep boiled eggs in the fridge to eliminate any cravings, the body loves them and like magic take cravings away!

6: Drink loads of water ,

up to 3 litres

Tap water is not great for fat loss.

Use bottled or filtered.

.

7: Carbs are NOT the enemy.

Eat good carbs like

Sweet potatoes, brown rice, root vegetables.

Eat small amounts & time these to be consumed

right after training or earlier in the day.

8: Do not rely on Scales alone

Take weekly photos from all

angles.

Take your measurements & understand it really

is not about what the scales say with a Fatloss nutrition

plan.

You will continue to see your body fat reduce long after the scales have stopped showing a loss.

Aim for to a lunch style breakfast 3 x per week.

Cut down on your daily toxins or eliminate them

Quit snacking.

Limit fruit & eat more veg

9:Swap long cross trainer and cardio workouts for short HIIT training workouts and weight programmes

10: Laugh, have fun, don’t be serious, enjoy your food,rest and play . Good endorphins should be released regularly to assist with fat loss

If you would like any more help with your fat loss then jump on to So Lean and Clean online plan .

We roll again Monday with prep phase from Friday

SoSpa Fitness & Fun October 2014 Holiday to Lindos

October 18th, 2014 | Posted by Gail in SoSpa Fitness and Fun Holidays - (Comments Off on SoSpa Fitness & Fun October 2014 Holiday to Lindos)

A fab time was had by all. Great food and results. See the ladies posts on Facebook after the event

We went to the beautiful resort of Lindos in Rhodes . The temperature was a perfect 24-26 degrees daily. Perfect for our workouts where we do the most physically demanding workouts first thing in the morning.

The week flew by and I really trained the group to their full potential and ALL ate the workouts up hence the fantastic results. As I already knew the capability of these girls from last year it was cool.

Here is what they said about the fitness holiday to Lindos Rhodes.

“Just returned from a SoSpa week away feeling fabulous!
The first two days were tough – I hadn’t done a lot of training during the previous two months due to many things including a couple of injuries. Day 3 was the turning point and by day 5 the energy I had was tremendous. The ‘ feel good factor’ just amazing.
The upshot 8 inches lost and half a stone off!!!!
The workouts tailored to the groups needs were tough and challenging but effective – seen in the photo evidence at the end of the week!
The location perfect – many meals Michelin starr! ( as well as Lean and Clean)
Gail Abbey planned this holiday to the minute detail, an absolute inspiration. Thank you again – roll on next year and perhaps a two weeker! Jx” (Jo Mclardy)

 

“Back from a sunshine filled week, feeling fitter, and flexible. Thanks Gail Abbey” Helen Gore

“Thanks from me too. Great holiday, great results and great motivation xx ”         Lesley Brown

2014 June Fitness Holiday

Fresh back from the SoSpa Fitness Holiday last week and have to say it was fabulous with great feedback and a really fun group who were up for anything !

With daily workouts from Yoga to abs/box fitness to Kayaking.

All improved their fitness with amazing results of between 30-50%improvements on their fit tests.

We had some fun evenings out with those who wanted cocktails and others went back after the delicious evening meal in the local restaurants to read their books and be ready early to workout.

All gave wonderful feedback about the break and said they felt tremendous and refreshed which was fab.

Our new coach Elias was a dream to work with and looking forward to him joining us on some SoSpa fitness breaks in the future.

Take a look at the gallery below and some of the reviews.
