January 2011 marks the launch of the Bovey Castle Weight Loss Academy. Much more than a weight loss retreat or boot-camp, it’s the ultimate confidence boosting experience intended to give guests the power to overcome weight loss struggles; be them emotional or physical, for a baby weight blitz or pre-wedding preparation.
From the five-star luxury of Bovey Castle, set within its own private estate on Dartmoor National Park, the Weight Loss Academy aims to permanently fix the broken cogs that have kept your body and life from running at its optimum level. Seducing your body into giving up unwanted fat and helping you to become more motivated and healthy everyday, the Weight Loss Academy will kick-start a new routine and support you until it becomes second nature. The co-founders, personal trainer and bestselling healthy-eating author Simon Lovell, and expert dietician and psychotherapist Karen Chugg, have both had to overcome their own weight struggles and now bring their vast experience to help guests of the Weight Loss Academy; allowing guests to discover why they eat unhealthy foods, why they find it hard to keep a steady weight and set sustainable goals to reshape their lives.
The Weight Loss Academy approach is unique as well as personally-tailored to each individual, combining a proven formula of teaching, physical education and relaxation. Cleansing your mind and body through structured exercise programs, seminars and fun workshops will leave you feeling energised, full of life and, most importantly, looking and feeling amazing. Roger Olsson has joined Bovey Castle as its executive chef after more than a decade of fine dining at some of the most highly-acclaimed London restaurants.
His expertise will preside over exclusively-designed menus prepared with the Weight Loss Academy’s dietician, combining local and seasonal produce with nutritiously balanced meals and snacks, throughout the day. No other weight loss retreat can offer the breathtaking experience of Bovey Castle’s vast countryside estate, giving trainers and guests alike the ultimate work-out playground, within 368 acres of perfectly-manicured grounds and unspoilt views, a championship golf course and holistic Elemis spa.
