I had thought for a long time whether this would be the right approach, it's certainly not cheap compared to many boot camps. But to call it a boot camp is to do it a disservice because not one voice is raised to get you to reach your potential. Did I lose weight in a week? Yes, more than I... More

It was with some trepidation that I set off for Nubeginnings as a not overweight but very unfit 62 year old! I needn't have worried - everyone was warm and welcoming and my room and shower room were absoutely delightful. The food was all absolutely delicious and served in a beautiful dining room. Meals weren't huge but were augmented by... More

In my experience, extreme measures to lose weight and get fit (e.g. intense exercise programs and massively restrictive diets) can only be maintained short-term. Ironically, every time I fall off the extreme diet/exercise wagon, I end up heavier than I was before and less inclined to exercise! I came to NuBeginnings in December just as I was losing enthusiasm for... More
