Exercise & Fitness

Q1. How much weight will I loose in a week at NuBeginnings France?

Q2. I have never been nordic walking before – will I enjoy it?

Q3. I never exercise at all – is NuBeginnings France the right place for me?

Q4. Is NuBeginnings France a medical facility?

How much weight will I loose in a week at NuBeginnings France? 
This is the question we are asked most often and it is the most difficult to answer. Your weight loss depends on your current weight, the effort you make whilst with us and your current diet. Our average weight loss in a week is just under 10lbs (about 5kgs). However some guests lose up to 19lbs in a week.

I have never been nordic walking before – will I enjoy it?
NuBeginnings France is located in the Loire Valley. This is a truly beautiful area in France (and the world). All our guests enjoy the local countryside and as long as you like the fresh air and walking then you will thoroughly enjoy your time with us. We have a team of highly skilled and enthusiastic fitness coaches who help make each hike you do fun and enjoyable.

I never exercise at all – is NuBeginnings France the right place for me? 
At NuBeginnings France we structure your programme around your likes and dislikes and the goals that you want to achieve. In this way we can ensure that the programme is ideally suited to you. If you really have never done any exercise before then we might suggest a week where the group fitness levels suit you. You will never be forced to do anything that is uncomfortable for you. Your safety and wellbeing is our utmost concern.

Is NuBeginnings France a medical facility? 
No – NuBeginnings France does not have nursing or medical staff. We are a holistic practice where the programme is centred around each guest and giving you the skills and knowledge to lead a healthy life. If you are unsure whether the programme is right for you please contact us and one of our advisors will be happy to talk to you.

WEIGHT LOSS BOOT CAMP

Luxury Weight Loss Boot Camp in the Heart of the Loire Valley

A very warm welcome to NuBeginnings France, our exclusive luxury weight-loss boot camp.

Here at NuBeginnings we understand that the simple weight loss equation of exercise more and eat less is just not enough. We will work with you to address your relationship with food and make sure you have wonderful results.

From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave, we will look after you in an historic French Chateau set in some of the most spectacular scenery in Europe. All this perfectly blended with our time-tested and proven weight-loss and lifestyle programme, painstakingly developed at the original NuBeginnings boutique weight-loss retreat in Devon.

Our exclusive and totally individual approach of nutrition, exercise and hypnotherapy is, we believe, the most effective, safe and luxurious weight-loss programme for women and men alike.

Frankly, we are proud of our record, because everyone who has ever attended one of our Residential Programmes has succeeded in losing weight, increased their fitness and improved their lifestyle (our average weight-loss is 10lb per guest, although you shouldn’t be surprised to lose as much as 21lbs or even more while you’re with us).

With our unique synthesis of a weight loss boot camp and a weight loss retreat (or spa) and our firm belief that losing weight does not have to be a struggle, NuBeginnings France promises YOU a specially designed week of activity, massage, hypnotherapy and lifestyle improvement where you’ll lose weight and increase your general wellbeing… and you’ll enjoy all this while being pampered and looked after by our kind and caring team.

NuBeginnings France is a True Concierge Service. In short, we take care of everything for you… With a maximum of eight guests each week at NuBeginnings France we will structure your individual programme to get you the results you want.

We leave nothing to chance because we know how important the small details are to your ultimate success.

Our weight loss program is specifically designed to really get great results during your stay and, more important, to keep working for you after you return home.

But make no mistake: you will work hard here… and you will see fantastic results.
