  • Bootcamp has reset and recharged me

    Im stood on a low-lying wall facing the sea, waves thrashing their way to shore, as the sun rises over adjacent cliffs. Im lined up, along with 14 other people, we have our arms linked together. We were strangers to one another a week earlier.Im soaking it all in and its overwhelming. My body begins to gently convulse with emotion, the tears start to flow. The woman to my left pats my back to comfort me. Its been a physical, mental and emotional roller coaster.This is boot camp.A week in warm, scenic Portugal, taking part in around 6 hours of exercise a day in a programme devised by experienced ex-Navy physical training instructor, Staff R and his team. Theyre bloody good at what they do. Its not just about training the body. Its also about immersing yourself in a glow of positivity; a rare chance to focus entirely on yourself for a whole week, reset your goals, or create new ones, eat well, sleep well, think about whats meaningful to you, what you have achieved and what you can achieve in the future.Its laid out from the get-go that you get out of boot camp what you put in. Its up to you to make the most of the opportunity. However, theres a high rate of returners at Prestige. This makes sense; that level of positivity is addictive, making you want to return for a top-up.You exercise pretty much all parts of your body during the week, and you bond with some amazing people while doing it. Everyone has their own story to tell about why theyre at boot camp. Ive been humbled by the experiences that some of my fellow boot campers have shared with me. They put my own worries into perspective. Notwithstanding their problems, every boot camper contributed to a supremely supportive environment, perpetuated by Staffs R, W and F.You start to believe you can do anything. I feel as though Ive had a reset and been pointed in the right direction.My biggest physical challenge was a long walk to the next town, which involved a steep climb up a large hill. Id done this kind of thing many times before, but I was wildly out of shape in comparison with those days.I wanted to complete it but I struggled mentally and physically all the way. Staff W was there behind me as I stumbled towards the top, being overtaken by more and more of my party. I hated that it was a struggle and that I was full of fear and worry about injuring myself; that ghost of a two-year-old ankle break still haunting my life. I was stumbling and gasping for air. Patient and ever-encouraging Staff W told me to take five paces then rest. He talked me through the rest of the ascent... just a little more...take the right hand path...10 more steps and youre there...he never gave up on me.Thank you, Staff W. It meant a lot to me.Prestige Boot Camp will change your life; the esprit de corps, the boost in self-confidence, the miraculous transformation in just one week, the beautiful sunrise on the beach. Youll be amazed what you can achieve in a short space of time.I rediscovered the person I used to be and Im very grateful. Thanks guys! x*

  • The Harrods of Bootcamp's.

    Whatever I write here sadly will not do Prestige justice. Yes it's a Bootcamp for fitness and nutrition but also it gave me so much more. Mentally I feel so much stronger than I have in a very long time. I booked a week in Portugal but decided to stay longer and finish two weeks with Staff R and Staff W (also Staff F for week 1). The commitment they all show in helping us all get the results we so craved is commendable. They have so much passion which comes from years of experience and the ability to listen to feedback over the years has made them in my opinion the best in the business. I would never ever consider using another company when it comes to my health and wellbeing. I will be returning and cannot wait. The chef was outstanding and quality of food was excellent. Also, I feel friends for life have been made. That wasn't really an intention but sometimes it can't be helped when for a week or two weeks we all had goals in common and helped each other when the going got tough. I can't thank Prestige enough and they deserve all their accolades and some!!!!! Simon C.*

  • Hardest week of my life ( but amazing all the same ! )

    Booked a week in Portugal thinking it would be a good way to recover from a very stressful year and get me back on track health & fitness wise. Was really nervous leading up to it as I had no idea if I was going to be able to keep up but thanks to all the amazing instructors & everyone else on the Camp I made it through the week. Fantastic team - Staff R & Staff W who didn't let me give up & Staff T who kept me company on the afternoon walks - she officially has the best laugh in the world . Great food , brilliant location , and a really fantastic group of people . Already checking my dates to see when I can come back . X*

  • Great Experience

    Excellent week of exercise, healthy and good food, great friendships and fun. Staff is great, knowledgable, helpful and motivating. Location is stunning. Villas could be a bit nicer and better maintained. Would definitely recommend to friends and will surely return soon.*

  • Loved it(well kind of )

    I had the best week ever but I won't lie it was super challenging. Before I arrived I was scared it wouldn't push me as much as previous ones, oh how wrong I was. There was something for everyone, so if you'd never exercised before this was catered for and yet if you wanted to push beyond your limits, this was also catered for and encouraged.The team are just great, I loved every single one of them.I wont lie, it was super hard and super emotional but totally worth it. A friend I met whilst there described it like child birth....,painful during labour(the actual week of bootcamp) but then once you hold that beautiful baby(the weight loss/fitness) you forget everything and are ready to go again(well after a short break )In conclusion, totally amazing and I will be back next year!!

  • 5-Star Support & Inspiration!

    I completed my second boot camp with Prestige in October, with the specific aim of boosting my fitness for cycling across Ghana despite a gym accident earlier in the year that set me back and knocked my confidence. Well I've just come home from the ride, 540km over 5 days in temperatures averaging 40'c and without question my week with Prestige helped me prepare, got me fitter, stronger and helped me enjoy it more.Staff R and Staff W delivered the same incredibly high level of support, expertise, variety and service that I enjoyed 2 years before and Jo is a diamond, so full of energy!I love this team, what they do and how they do it - I tried loads of other boot camps before I discovered Prestige but wouldn't consider anyone else these days. Treat yourself!!*

  • One Of The Best Experiences Of My Life

    I accidentally stumbled across Prestige and knew they were offering exactly what I needed. I managed to persuade the rest of my family they needed it too! We felt welcomed by the amazing staff and the rest of the group, but after our first training session we realised it was no joke! I had never in my life experienced exercise that intense and needless to say, my family were completely shocked with not only the training but the drastic change in diet. However, Staff R/Staff W were not only excellent trainers but provided amazing emotional support that made you feel like you could get through anything. I can't thank them enough for looking after my parents who came away actually enjoying it, making changes to their diet and wanting to come back! Thank you Chef for the amazing food. Kathy, your massages were fantastic and have made converts of my parents. And Frankie for being such a positive, calming presence. The location was beautiful and made for a great place to get away.. We came away feeling energised, informed, relaxed and healthy. I cannot recommend Prestige enough, it will change your life and you won't regret it.*

  • Hopes, dreams & aspirations, smashed!

    Pre bootcamp, wasn't a unique situation. Self employed, Husband & Wife, full of tame excuses regarding, hectic lifestyles, lack of exercise, & failed diets! Not sure what we had let ourselves in for! Hats off to Prestige for a well detailed website, made booking, straight forward. Very warm welcome, at our stunning location. Prestige have the most amazing balanced group of staff. Staff R (new friend!) & Staff W were/are great motivators, & extremely knowledgeable, putting their experience to good use. What with the tremendous back up from Frankie, Kathy, & chef, made it, a truely memorable week. Believe me, this was no holiday, but the most educational, rewarding, & emotional week we've ever encountered. You couldn't fault the itinerary. We've warned the Prestige team, we'll be back!*

  • Graham at Algarve Bootcamp

    What a week ! This is my 3rd boot camp with these guys .Staff R ....InspirationalStaff W ... MotivationalJo.....Bubbly,Bouncy encouragement Chef .... A wizard with the grub Anyone coming to these camps , make sure you want to work hard , its one week in your year but you can gain so much from it , its emotional when you all finish at the end of the week , its totally and utterly challenging training in 30 degrees of hot sun , its beautiful in its surroundings , facilities excellent and the new choice of Portugal instead of Spain is a winner . I have seen Prestige improve each time I come , the new flexible , psychological and enjoyable format is great , if you have been in Spain before you will see the difference . Kayaking in the caves , what a blast ! Whatever your reason for going the staff can help , I was stressed to the hilt but turned my mind to health and well being and managed to put it all behind me ; each year I take away something from the camps , this year at 65 hopefully I take away more years of fitness . Maybe try a cooler Wales camp next time ?*

  • I'm addicted!

    I cannot speak highly enough of the week I've just returned from in Portugal with the Prestige team, it really was all I could have hoped for and then a ton more. I'm reasonably fit but wanted to kick start the exercise and top up the tan after a lazy and boozy summer. I have come away feeling strong, toned, motivated and generally on top of the world! Staff R was a complete legend and the rest of the crew were awesome too. It wasn't just about working hard, but about learning what your body is capable of and how important it is to take care of it. I've already made a load of the delicious healthy recipes myself at home. The biggest surprise/shock to most people was small food portions, but it really is all in your head and amazing how little fuel your body really needs. I wasn't hungry at all, my skin is glowing and I'm already booked in for a top-up bootcamp in Hyde Park. I will 100% return and if you're not sure whether it's for you - just do it, take the leap, I promise you won't regret it!*

  • Indescribable

    I genuinely find it hard to summarise my time at Prestige as it has had such a big impact on my life. Staff R and Staff W are amazing trainers and really made the week for me. Although I was incredibly unfit and finding the week tough (everyone did), they never gave up and were such a strong support system for me - I honestly can't thank them enough. The food was lovely, and although I decided to go on reduced portions I never felt hungry as we were so busy! Everything about the week was amazing; the group were lovely, the scenery in Wales is beautiful and the accommodation was great too. I can't recommend this experience enough, although it was emotional and tiring, I feel it's changed me for the better and I really have Staff R, Staff W, Chef and my group to thank for that!*

  • Tough Love

    Had a great week in Wales . Really challenged me emotionally and physically and came away feeling recharged, fitter and slimmer. Staff R and Staff W are fantastic trainers - motivating, challenging and supportive. The food was great and although portions were small I wasn't hungry as we ate regularly . There was down-time between exercise sessions , the location was stunning ( we were very fortunate with lovely weather) and the accommodation and facilities were high quality. I would love to go again and recommend the experience to anyone looking for a break that is out of the ordinary and positive for mind and body.*

  • A strong body represents a strong mind

    Coming off a one week boot camp in Devon I am still raving to my friends about how good I feel and still staying strong in terms of my goals to incorporate more fitness in my life and be less toxic in my diet. Cannot rate Staff W and Staff M highly enough for the enthusiasm they put into every camp and how many lives they change by not only giving a health kickstart but also giving some a chance to believe in themselves again. Thank you and see you in Hyde Park!*

  • Excellent Start in Devon July 2016

    First time doing this camp and came with no expectations but was met with enthusiasm. Staff W and Staff M could not have been more positive, energetic and supportive through out what was one of the hottest in July. Beating down every excuse we had and bringing about a new sense of pride and confidence and team spirit, this bootcamp was a life changer for me and a new start for great things and happy endings. Food was impeccable and excellent and a great thing to come back to from a hard workout. Fantastic trip and will be back in Portugal at the end of the year - dig deep and never give up!

  • great escape from London or working life in general!

    I had a fantastic week with Staff R, Staff W and Chef and a bunch of awesome ladies. I came to improve my fitness and wasn't aiming for weightloss but 3 full days of exercise, fresh air, healthy food and lots of sleep I came back lighter and very refreshed! This is an investment in you, we only get 1 body, treat it right, Prestige will help you with this. The Camp is a great way to kickstart your fitness as well healthy eating habits; if you want to be more mindful about your physical health this is a great place to start!*

  • Empowering, motivational and exhilarating.

    I wasn't sure what to expect when i started my boot camp, i had trained as an individual and felt relatively fit however this takes you to another level. The team are so knowledgeable and interesting regarding the fitness and the nutrition it would be impossible not to excited. You are encouraged in a way that isn't patronising or forceful but motivational, giving you the sense of self belief and determination. You meet total strangers at the beginning of Boot Camp but within hours you are working as a close knit team to get through the HIIT, Circuit,Walking, Boxing etc encouraging each other when it gets tough. Staff T, Staff W and Chef are outstanding individuals at the top of their game and it was a pleasure to meet them. I have found a new sense of empowerment and a can do attitude that will help me drive my fitness to the next level because i know i can do anything now. Thank You Prestige for a 1st class experience that deserves a definite 5* rating.*

  • A life changing experience

    I'd never been on a detox/bootcamp holiday before but I certainly will again, even if it's half as good as the one I had with Prestige. The meals were truly incredible; healthy and delicious with amazing juices, the villa in Portugal was top notch and the exercise classes and hikes were unbelievably challenging (even for a fitness freak like myself!). And to top it off, the guys from Prestige were consummate professionals. They are extremely knowledgeable and great fun to be around. It was like being away with a bunch of mates (albeit ones who shout at you to do more sit ups occasionally). It wouldn't hesitate to recommend it and will certainly be back*

  • Motivational Wales May13th

    Wow what a week I had, really didn't know what to expect but wanted to get a bit fitter, lose a little weight and get motivated and boy did that happen.If you are prepared to put the work in you'll get the results. Fabulous trainers full of encouragement and praise and the wonderfully tasty food freshly cooked by Chef has educated me on getting flavour without the calories and large portion sizes are the thing of the past.Its tough no doubt but the hot tub and fabulous accommodation allows for chilled evenings though most of us were in bed by 9pm! 7.5 lbs off and 9 inches has inspired me to continueThanks Kate*

  • Prestige Boot Camp

    I have just completed another very enjoyable week with Prestige, What I love abut Prestige is the fact that they treat everyone as individuals and in doing so get the best out of each of us and push us to do things that we did not think we could do. Although I am not , in the first flush of youth,I come away feeling energized, full of the joys of Spring, and looking forward to the next one! The food cooked by the chef is wonderful and we all look forward to each meal, The support and back up by all the staff is wonderful .*

  • What a Journey!!!

    Having done very little exercise in the past I decided to give this a go with my husband who is a fitness fanatic. We didn't want to loss weight but to improve our general fitness. When we arrived at our apartments the views and facilities were amazing. I thought we had booked the perfect retreat, then along came the exercise and what a shock it was!It took me a couple of days to get over the little aches that were appearing because I hadn't exercised in so long however the staff and coaches were amazing, everyday they pushed us to our full potential, no one was left out. My husband who had great fitness levels already was pushed to his full potential too so we both got 100% out of each and every workout.The food was unbelievable, we wanted to hire the chef at home. It was tasty, nutritious and healthy. We are now home a little lighter, a lot leaner and with glowing skin. I think everyone in the world should experience this bootcamp at least once in their lives. We are home on a high and will definitely be back next year if not sooner!!!*

  • Best week of my life, that is why I am having three more!

    Let me start with what I did not like - preachy about sugar is awesome, unless, of course, you're not into sugar. At all. If you don't even eat fruit because it's sweet and abhor chocolate, a full hour length movie on the dangers of it is a bit much.That's all I disliked. Really. That, and the British habit of roasting a perfectly good tomato...What did the tomato ever do to you, chef?I am a loner and I dislike groups; I never realised the power of being in one until last week, when my team got me through hours I could not fathom I could have gotten through a week before. I felt my physical ability grow every day - I know it sounds unreal, but this is what happened. On a single circuit I and Gillian went from not being able to do one pull up to doing 8 then to doing 12 in a matter of 5 minutes. Because we cheered each other on, because the team's enthusiasm was infectious, because you guys simply have it.If I can do it, and I am a three pack a day smoker, carrying way too much weight, then you can do it too; there really is no excuse. Prestige Camps is not a magical bullet, but it is a first step. I would encourage you to take it, unknown reader.Staff R, Staff W, my thanks for your patience. Jo, what can I say, sweetness, xx. Chef, you rock so much :) I was not hungry for a single moment, you fed us the right things at the right time. Kathy, so graceful; Sofia, so honest.And Sir, yes Sir, I will be running up those stairs by the time I meet you again in Wales :DThank you for the week,Cheers,Maria*

    The most amazing experience of my life, it has changed me as a person mentally and physically. The staff are so supportive, they are your life line to getting through the week. They are bubbly, friendly and approachable at all times. They keep you going when you feel like you have nothing let to give. Compliments to the chef, this week as opened my eyes to the beauty of eating healthy nutritious food that's great tasting. Always colourful and delicious. I would recommend anyone and everyone. The positivity that has been installed in me this week is awesome. Week 1 of the rest of my life done *

  • Portugual

    Just spent two weeks on camp in Portgual. Can't fault the experience. It's not cheap but once there you forget the outlay! The beautiful weather, beach setting, clean food, pumping music, and clever training programme are all in there. Not to the incredibly supportive atmosphere nurtured by Staff R, Staff W and Jo. If you can't use this as a launch pad to make lifestyle changes then you're doomed!!! I loved it. Hope to do Wales next :)*

  • A week well spent

    We burned an average of 4,000 calories a day and each of us in the group lost both pounds and inches. More importantly, however, I think we were given a lot of food for thought that we can take home and continue to reflect on. Our instructors, both with over 20 years of experience in the military and really lovely guys, were full of wisdom and positivity. The team really cares about the participants, its not some horrible shouty military mania, and the results are there as well. And the location in Wales was absolutely stunning.*

  • Life changing

    For the past 7 months I had been suffering with depression and anxiety, my weight had increased dramatically and I had lost all motivation and confidence. After struggling to get back to the gym which is something I had always enjoyed I knew I needed to do something drastic so I booked my place on the 5 day Devon boot camp. I have never done anything like this before and would never have gone on my own but it was the best thing I ever did. Staff W Staff M and Chef were amazing, so helpful and encouraging and knew exactly when to push you. I met an amazing group of ladies who were so friendly and supportive and my room mate was fabulous. In total I lost 9lb and 11 inches which was unbelievable. Since boot camp my attitude towards food has totally changed I know I can go without the rubbish snacks, bread and biscuits. I've also found my motivation for the gym again and have been regularly attending different fitness classes. My partner, friends and family have seen a massive difference in me and I am extremely happy I went. Boot camp totally changed my life, I achieved so much more than just weightloss I found my confidence again and proved to myself that if I put my mind to it I can achieve my goals. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone and will hopefully be attending another bootcamp in the future. Thankyou so much Prestige Bootcamp Xx*

  • Carla Gregory - Portugal January 2016

    This was my 4th boot camp with Prestige. Great week with good clean food and surrounded by positive encouragement. I was recovering from an Achilles injury and the Staff made it easy for me to adapt the training to suit my recovery. For me it's not all about weight loss, although that is an added bonus, but more about escaping from the stresses of work and coming home feeling more refreshed than any of my other 'holidays'.Looking at returning in November to get my next fix, my 21 year old daughter who attended with me last year is also angling to join me!!!*

  • Life changing - and I lost 15.4lb in one week!

    In September 2015 I had a medical. It was the news I fully expected. I was quite a bit overweight (over 15 stone) with high BMI and fat percentage.... It was a good enough reason for my partner Abi to encourage me to do the same Boot Camp she went on a few years ago. So I clicked onto the Prestige website and booked a place on the October boot camp in Spain. After seven days I returned to the UK an unbelievable 15.4lb lighter, and having lost 12inches of fat around my hips, waist, legs and arms (combined). It was a truely amazing week and I met some fantastic people along the way with similar goals in mind. In had not exercised for a very long time (we guessed at 15 to 20 years), So I was a little worried going into the week so unfit. I needn't have worried as you will come on to read later. However, they call it boot camp for a reason! It is run by top notch ex Military (Royal Navy) PT instructors who are referred to as "STAFF". On the boot camp I attended, there were three of them, Staff "M", "W" and "R". They know exactly what they are doing given their combined 70 years of experience. Each day started in the sweat room and tough cardio sessions before breakfast then off to the beach - but not for relaxing, but more circuits and interval exercises. A small snack preceded even more workouts on the beach. Generally speaking we returned back to the villa at about 13:00 before starting all over again in the afternoon but usually in the hills around our villas - surrounded by absolutely breathtaking scenery. There were 22 of us on this boot camp, all but 5 were women, and everyone had a different set of goals. Most were about weight loss, but a small handful just wanted to concentrate on their fitness. Some simply wanted a bit of personal time to clear their heads of the pressures back home or simply to get their life back on track. Each workout session is noticeably different and targeted overall body fitness, legs, abs and upper body. Warm ups and warm downs were considered as critical as the training itself. To fuel this venture we needed to be sure that we were getting the best nutrition possible. The food was pretty varied and on occasions damned right delicious. Ours was cooked up by "chef" and served in perfectly measured portions on a daily basis. In my case it was reduced portions to help with one of my goals. Nutritious, but deliberately low in calories, with no added salts, sugars, or bad carbs, only good ones, All food types and demands appeared to be catered for as our group had vegetarians, pescatarians, along with Kosher, Halal to name but a few. Evening meals were served at 18:00, these were usually the best. With no alcohol, caffeine, toxins or other rubbish going into your system, combined with huge amounts of exercise and different (reduced) food intake, the human body does react differently! I guess I was not ready for this. On day two I hit my own personal low. As the last series of exercises neared completion I entertained the others by reaching my physical limit and threw up violently.... I had to be escorted back to the villa! This is when the experience if the crew really kicked in. Staff "M" took me back to the villa, reassuring me all the way. He made sure I was fully rehydrated (with a magic sachet) and did the "first aid" bit with compassion and care. Staff "W" then sat me down and made sure that I knew exactly what was going on and what to expect, taking his time to make sure it sank in. Staff "R" did his usual (and brilliant) motivational piece whilst Jo (a key member of the support staff) gave me a big hug. This was just what was needed, as at the time I really didn't think I could do another day. I even had brief thoughts of giving up, but these didn't last for long given the encouragement and experience of the staff, as well as the other boot campers! The next day we did a tough 23km hike up a local mountain (I say hike, but you needed all four limbs at times). My mind and body were back on track! It was a fantastic day with awesome views across to the Atlas Mountains in north Africa. Wednesday and Thursday followed a similar pattern to the first two days, and Friday we did paddle boarding with a workout before and after - a brilliant day. The accommodation was first class, with indoor and outdoor heated pools, jacuzzis, hot-tubs, saunas, cinema room and much more too boot. I guess that is hardly surprising given its next door to some of Europe's highest priced real estate. It's hard to describe how I feel right now. Exhausted, exhilarated, emotional are the first that spring to mind. I am significantly fitter than I was, pushing myself harder than I thought possible or had dared to. The bonus is that I am a lot thiner and lighter too.What I've also seen is that it is not important how you compare to others, it's all about how you feel about yourself. EVERYONE starts and ends these camps at a very different place, so everyone ends up a winner! One piece of advice I heard on the first day stuck with me al the way through, this was simply "the more you put in, the more you get out". Its true! This experience has also got me to think really hard about the importance of the fuel we put into our bodies. I knew much of this beforehand, but it's hit home quite hard after being able to survive on such little volume but exercise so damned hard. It's definitely a case of quality over quantity from now on. The group of people I was with on this camp all expressed similar views so I know I am not alone in these thoughts. Four weeks later and I have managed to keep the weight off (even over Christmas), and more importantly have got into some good (daily) exercise habits. Something I had previously found a whole bunch of excuses not to do... I believe I am now filter than Ive been for decades. These boot-camp holidays are amazing and I would say life changing. A self indulgent gift of the highest order and something I would recommend to anyone and at any age. This team know what they are doing.

  • I Can't fault anything about my recent Devon bootcamp

    I've recently returned from doing the 7day bootcamp -this was my 50th birthday present.I got so much out of the experience, I wanted to be pushed both physically & mentally to limits I'd never been pushed too.I wanted time to myself to re-evaluate my future goals.I wanted to lose a few lbs & inches.I got all this & much more, I got to run again, I went tree top walking, indoor climbing. Above all - everything we did was made fun, the staff where amazing, they new how to push us, motivate & educate.This was the 1st bootcamp I've ever been on, I can't wait to be able to do it all over again.My results where out standing, yes it was hard work but worth it.Thank you prestige, staff W & staff M x*

  • It really works

    Have been on this Devon camp 3 times now, the results have been absolutely fantastic and very consistent in terms of weight loss and change in body shape. It is hard work but the staff are impecably professional and supportive. The accommodation and food is 5 star, set in a pristine picturesque Devon valley complete with pheasants and hooting owls. The resultant changes in body, complexion and attitude are very empowering and refreshing indeed. My overall fitness and health has measurably improved since attending the first camp 6 years ago. It really is the very best- consistently producing great results if you follow their plan for the week. Thrilled again with all Prestige have done for me, Thank you : )*

  • Awesome!

    I had an amazing week. Staff W, Staff M and Chef provided the right level of authority, support and humour so that I was pushed, but felt secure and had lots of fun. We were lucky with a great group of people, who although quite diverse, gelled and supported each other. I enjoyed Chef's food enormously and learned to eat slowly! The work outs were varied and interesting and I loved the mystery of not knowing what to expect. Staff W was also very skilled at reading the mood and fatigue of the group and either providing the right kind of workout, or motivating us out of our low spirits. I loved it all, and although I hope that I won't need to come back for some time, I will definitely recommend it to my friends and I will return if I (and when) I need to!*

  • Best week of my life!

    Incredible week being encouraged to go beyond my limitations. The Prestige BC was so intelligently run, amazingly motivating, educational and great healthy food too. The Staff knew exactly how far to push us and when to switch exercises. I did not have to think for myself just followed the advice. Beach and Mountain circuit training was great. Didnt think exercise could be so much fun! I am so much fitter healthier and toned. Thank you so much*

  • 50th Birthday gift to myself!

    It is a long and expensive trip from Western Canada to Malaga, Spain; one that I had been ruminating over for a few years, but with a milestone on the horizon, the time was finally right. I decided to attend Marbella bootcamp around my 50th Birthday as a way to positively and more fit-fully move into the new decade...and if I lost a few pounds in the process, bonus! I knew bootcamp would be physically challenging, which it certainly was, as I pushed to accomplish my goals (increased upper body strength, increased core). What I didn't know was the mental and emotional challenges I would also face and conquer that week, along with their lasting impact. At home. this has given me the strength to make some life changes that I have wanted to for some time but never quite managed, as if now my inner voice is now saying "you can conquer and enjoy bootcamp, you can certainly do this!" Further, I had some questions about fitness while moving into my 50's that I needed to sort. After experiencing all boocamp has to offer and seeing what I am capable of, I realized I was actually asking the wrong questions. With a lot of thought, I have since re-phrased those questions and am now working on my ultimate goals: to move forward positively, healthfully and more fitfully into this new decade! I would like to attend bootcamp again in 2016, alas with distance and time, its not feasible. However, I am planning for 2017 in Portugal while aiming to be in the top level running group this time around!*

  • The Bestest Bootcamp in the Land

    I went to Marbella for a week's bootcamp a few weeks ago. I purposefully have waited a few weeks to write the review (so I'll come back to that!)Firstly - if you want to go on a bootcamp - use Prestige. They are the best and you won't find a better one. Secondly - what to expect?! EEK! Well I went to Marbella with a good level of fitness, and quite a few of my friends were like "WHY ARE YOU GOING ON A BOOTCAMP" Well - rest assured - whatever your fitness level you can still get so so much out of a week with Prestige. There are different types of exercise sessions everyday and you can push yourself to the level that's right. The Staff will give easier & harder options so everyone can join in! For me, the biggest gain was the nutritional and well-being advice. Prestige don't want you to leave camp having lost weight (this will happen anyway) they want you to leave with the tools to keep you healthy LONG TERM. I learnt so much about some of the errors of my diet, got loads of tips, food ideas from the week, and a right wake up call on portion control!!!!!!!! Thirdly - did it work? SURE DID - I lost 6llbs, and 9.5 inches - which I was really happy with. Fourthly - has it all gone back on? NO!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am still exactly the same weight and dimensions as I was when I left. Personally bootcamp for me was shifting the last few llbs so I was only hoping to maintain from leaving. I have pretty much stuck to the lessons, and some of the "free froms" on camp like dairy & caffeine. I've never worked harder in the gym, and my fitness has improved beyond what I could have imagined. I honestly had the best week - it was tough at times, but it was the most rewarding week. I feel healthier, more confident, my skin is glowing, and I am still a bit smaller! The Staff have got the balance of being there for you and driving you to work to your limits. About half the people on our week were "returnees" from previous years - and once you've been you'll know why....*

  • Fantastic opportunity to kickstart a healty lifestyle.

    This was without a doubt one of the best things I have done for myself.Being pushed to give as much as I could was a fabulous challenge and I certainly have reaped the rewards. The staff are amazing - encouraging you every step of the way and so passionate in everything they did.There was a great positive drive to the week, and good friendships fostered. To anyone that is stuck in a rut, give the boot camp a go. It's a life changing experience.*

  • Prestige are all about a passion for health & wellbeing

    Attended 3rd bootcamp in Marbella this October and found Prestige to be consistently brilliant at what they do. The experience and knowledge of the Staff is second to none, showing genuine commitment to ensuring each individual has the opportunity to achieve their goals. The accommodation is superbly comfortable and the food is nutritious and tasty with portions suited to what you want to achieve whether it be for weight loss or to gain fitness and a sense of wellbeing. The exercise is as tough as you want to make it with the instruction being firm but so motivating and supportive that you are driven to push yourself and most people achieve much more that they thought possible. The feeling of wellbeing after just a couple of days of good food, fresh air and tough but enjoyable physical exercise is amazing. I learn something new each time to take away and incorporate into my life. The first time it was 20 minute tabata interval training, the second it was using boxing to tone up arms and this time its trying out some new tasty recipes as well as realising I can run and enjoy it after all! I can't wait to go again.*

  • An amazing experience.......... I will be back......

    This is the first time I have been to a Boot Camp.....and I'm delighted that I chose the BEST one!! Prestige has the most professional, well organised, inspiring and experienced team who will make you work to your maximum capacity....whatever that is...... It was hard work but the most rewarding and bonding experience that I can highly recommend to everyone......*

  • Fantastic!

    One of the most challenging experiences, yet one of the most rewarding! Pushing the boundaries of myself physically, and mentally showed me how age and physical limitations can be used in a positive way to get the best outcome for myself. It was a self journey that will influence the rest of my life. Staff were all positive, encouraging, and energetic and proud of the results that they witnessed. Thank you Prestige!!*

    The whole 2 weeks was a real experience, quite challenging especially the second week but well worth sticking at it as the results speak for themselves.Very comprehensive welcome home pack to keep us on the straight and narrow.Instructors are brilliant in keeping you motivated but also bringing in humour at the right moments to help you stay focused.*

  • Marbella Bootcamp

    I have recently returned from 7 nights at the Marbella bootcamp and can honestly say that the professionalism of the staff is second to none. The itinerary ran flawlessly and no two sessions are the same which made each one challenging but fun. The accommodation is amazing. The villas are top notch with breathtaking views to start and end each day. We had a great bunch of people on our camp (27 in total) of all ages and fitness abilities and the staff catered for each and every one of us. The meals were great quality, although I did struggle with a couple of them, the staff were more than happy to offer an alternative. I went out there hoping to lose 7lb and I lost a total of 9lb and 10.5 inches. I would recommend Prestige to anyone and feel I will definitely be back with them at some point as the results are fantastic.*

  • Lifechanging experience!

    This is the toughest yet most inspirational weeks holiday I have ever had! I met some amazing people including one lady who had shed 11stones in weight, and felt supported and encouraged throughout my whole experience of bootcamp despite being the largest and slowest by a country mile! Staff W and Staff M were brilliant, never critical always encouraging sometimes challenging !! I hated the pain but loved what was achieved. I lost 9lbs in weight over 3 and a bit days! This weight has stayed off since returning home. It has given me the proverbial kick up the backside I needed to embrace a healthy lifestyle for good. No going back. I would recommend to anyone who needs a dynamic and fresh approach to achieving weight loss/ and improving fitness. The food is delicious too!*

  • Amazing, Amazing, Amazing!!

    Signing up to a week with prestige is one of the best things I have ever done. Not only did I improve my fitness but it has improved my day to day life. I am full of energy all day as oppose to life prior to bootcamp when I constantly moaned that I was tired.If you genuinely want to kickstart a new healthy lifestyle this is 100% the place for you.*

  • Awesome experience - They Just Keep Getting Better

    I have just got back from my third Bootcamp with Prestige and I have to say that again I have had an amazing experience and I am looking into booking my fourth camp for next year.It's hard work and challenging but somehow the staff manage to find new ways to make working hard so much fun, no day is the same and no circuit is either.I was encouraged to keep pushing even when I thought I had nothing left to give and each time I was will amazed at just how much I could do. I lost 8lb this time but even better is I feel and look great.*

  • Huge challenge, great rewards, fantastically organised

    I have nothing but great things to say about my first boot camp. It was really everything I could have wanted it to be and more!The entire week was incredibly well organised with a hugely varied programme of activities (including last minute adaptations for weather and other circumstances) and every day was challenging, fun and different no matter what your shape, size or fitness level.Staff kept the energy levels high with huge amounts of enthusiasm and by pushing us individually and as a team, and just when you think you can't do any more they get that last little bit out of you.Chef did a great job with our daily menu which was really varied with lots of care going into presentation and flavour which really challenges your thinking on 'diets' and healthy eating. Although food was a constant topic of conversation I never really felt hungry and learned a lot about what and how much I need to be eating.Accommodation is really comfortable and set in beautiful (hilly) countryside which makes for a great week outdoors no matter what the weather is. I learned a lot about myself and what I am capable of and having shed a stone (and a foot) in a week I feel revitalised, refreshed and motivated to carry on.Thank you! I'll be back....*

  • Professional, organised and effective - Definitely recommended!

    I attended the Devon bootcamp between 10-17 July 2015 with Staff W and Staff M and was thoroughly impressed - so much so that I would not hesitate to recommend and consider returning at a future date.Every moment of the day was well thought out and geared up towards getting those all important results. The training sessions were hard work, but the exercises were varied and broken down into manageable chunks. Both Staff W and Staff M were extremely motivating and encouraging and knew exactly how hard to push us without burning us out. They were both extremely knowledgable and professional and presented instructions, explanations and motivation in a clear and concise manner. The food was healthy, nutritious and tasty - but don't expect a lot of it. Once you get to grips with the small portion sizes it becomes less of an issue. Everyone is in the same boat and you are given enough to get you through the day. The chef also had a lot of information to pass on and recipe ideas to share.You get out what you put in - but everything is tailored towards the realisation of your goals. Make the most of it and enjoy!*

  • Great experience for the body and mind

    This was my third Prestige camp at the Devon site in four years. I am 57, while fitness is important to me, my life is not organised around it. The camp allows me to fully concentrate on this aspect of my life, to increase my fitness and strength, and to lose weight. In both previous cases the results lasted, I am much fitter now than when I first came, and I weighed less upon arrival last week than when I left last year. So this is not a fad. However, it is very hard work, which is reliably supported and guided by the wonderful PB staff. They are much more important than the lovely countryside or luxury accommodation. Obviously, diet is very important, too. While the meals were fine this year, too, they lacked the excellence and style/flair of the previous chef (for example, there's nothing wrong with sweet potatoes, but three times in a week? turkey/chicken tended to be bland, turkey burger in particular, etc, nothing major, only noticable perhaps to those who enjoyed the cooking of last year, or who cook fresh and tasty food themselves).All in all a truly recommendable experience for anyone looking to improve their fitness, lose weight, and spend a week very far away from their everyday life. Thanks a lot to the very dedicated staff W, without whom the same results would not be achieved, as well as to staff M and also to chef.*

  • Brilliant and Motivational week

    The week was very well organised - the exercise was tough, and very challenging at times, but the Staff were unfailingly brilliant at pushing us all on. I cannot recommend these guys highly enough! Food was delicious (and I got more when I asked, which was relief as I was not there to lose weight, as my goal was to get fitter and firmer) and the accommodation was lovely in a very peaceful valley. We had a fantastic group which was very supportive of everyone in the group. My daughter lost over 8 pounds and 8 inches and felt exhilarated. I left feeling fitter and better that I had done for years, and am trying to maintain the momentum by putting in place the nutritional and exercise knowledge I learnt, during what was something of a life changing experience. I am going to have to book another week soon!*

  • Change your life with Prestige!

    This is my 2nd visit to Prestige and I came away extremely satisfied as I did the 1st time. (1st visit I lost 6.8lbs and 12inches and on this visit i was a stone lighter and still lost 6.2lbs and 11 inches) Thanks to Staff W & Staff M who are top of their game, motivational, clever and have years of knowledge and experience. They know how to push you to get the results you want. (I find the group are always there for different reasons) Just as you think you can't take any more they switch tact and do something fun but still pushing you. The accommodation is lovely. You feel safe and comfortable. I travelled on my own both times, which I wouldn't have done had I felt unsure. Thanks also to the fabulous chef! Food was wonderful and I never felt hungry. I've brought some great food ideas home with me.I cannot recommend Prestige enough - no need to look around this is the one to book. Thanks again - you are a great team.*

  • I achieved what I wanted, and so much more.

    I chose to go on a Prestige Boot Camp because I needed a real break. I haven't had a proper holiday in about six years, so this might seem an unusual choice but I wanted something I could do where I knew I wouldn't keep being drawn back to my emails or lazily drink wine. I also wanted to give myself a bit of a kick up the pants: shape up for summer, focus on my health rather than work or family, and step out of my usual routines. Everyone at Prestige clearly knows exactly what they're doing and, if you can switch off your brain for a week, you know you're in safe hands. Staff W and Staff R are both a great mixture of humour, drive, fitness-by-example and compassion and are great at energising when needed and proving a sympathetic boost when it all gets a bit much. (Special shout out to Staff W, on that one, who provided me with a few major confidence and morale boosts when they were needed: his kindness and humour was hugely appreciated). Chef is great: loves sharing cooking tips and has a dry sense of humour. His lamb dish was exquisite.Pettistree House is a good venue for this; the space around it is perfect for the fun and games Prestige put you through, the lanes around it quiet and good for a walk, and it's got great access to the wider countryside and beach as well as the A12 and Woodbridge Railway station. It's a nice house and decorated in a luxurious style: this is not a week of slumming by any stretch.There's no denying that this is tough. I was determined to make the most of my week so I really got my head down and focused; you get what you put in, I pushed myself hard and ended the week with a real sense of achievement. You find things out about yourself too: I discovered that I'm still a good runner, even though I hate running, and that I'm actually pretty fit. I also rediscovered my love of walking, and had a blissful day of walking half way through as light relief from all the other exercises.It's definitely good value for money: when you think of accommodation, food and intensive small group personal training it would still represent value at twice the price. You will get a return on your investment: time, money and effort. Even though my goal wasn't weight loss I did lose weight and inches; more importantly I feel more toned, stronger, more energetic and more positive minded.I feel strangely bereft now at my desk: it would be lovely to be able to drop in whenever you need a boost. It puts a burn in your muscles and a massive smile on your face: what more could you want from a Boot Camp? As for its long term effect: I feel as though I've been handed the keys to a Ferrari and I'm going to look after it damn well!Thanks Prestige, you're all stars.*

  • Amazing experience

    After one week at prestige I can honestly say I haven't felt healthier or happier for a long time. Having left I have managed to continue my portion sizes and am working out a lot more and ultimately have continued to lose weight. Will definitely return here, worth every penny!*

  • This was a life-changing experience.

    Never did I every work with an organisation that so under-promised and over-delivered! The ultra-professional staff (and chef) gave the motivation and framework for maximum group interaction and demanding physical activities that took you to whole new levels. You ending up seeing yourself in a completely different light, and I'm saying this a 59-year old. Being overweight - I lost 7 kilos (that's 1 stone 1 lb) in just six days! And I'm continuing - it's a week after the camp and the nutrition / exercise program has already become habitual, and another kilo off to show for it."Better body, better mind, better you" (the official Prestige motto) doesn't do justice. For me it was New Fun Body / Powerful and Optimistic mindset / New and Much Greater Person.*

  • Outstanding in every way

    Staff M And W were incredible, so enthusiastic and professional, made exercise fun and varied and were able to motivate me to work my hardest even with a bad cold. Chef made meals delicious and healthy, something to look forward to! Guests were from all over and by day two felt like one big family. I have been on other fitness weeks and this one was by far the most challenging and the most fun.*

  • Life changing experience

    Being v v overweight (too close for comfort to 16stone) I was a bit nervous about going to bootcamp as I wasn't sure I was going to be able to keep up. I couldn't have been more wrong. The Prestige team are absolutely fantastic and only make you work at your own pace. The food is delish and it was a real eye opener that I could do all that exercise, eat sensibly without feeling hungry! The team are so knowledgeable about nutrition & exercise and make the whole week so fun (ok I had some down points but then I was sweating sugar & caffeine out of every pore!). I came away from that week having lost 11lbs (in one week!) and an absolute determination to stop throwing rubbish into my body - it has been a week later and I have already lost another 4lbs as I just feel in control when confronted with my binge food triggers! I still have a lot to lose but I know I can do it now. I have absolutely no reservations in recommending Prestige - going on that week was the best decision I have made in a long time.*

  • BRILLIANT GO FOR IT

    Where do I begin to explain what an amazing experience I had at Prestigue Bootcamp. I had explored many other bootcamps but something kept bringing me back to Prestigue. I am 56 and wanted to explore my physical and mental ability. I was meet with such a warm welcome and felt at home straight away. The trainers are so inspiring and their passion for what they do is so apparent . They are so full of information and always willing to stop and speak to you. Each day was different as was each session and it was never boring . I loved the games we played, made me realise how much I would love to play a team sport . It's a hard week but when you put your mind to it you CAN do it. The food was excellent and each meal different . I would HIGHLY recommend Prestigue to anyone thinking of doing a bootcamp . I could go on praising them, but think you should just book to experience a life transforming week. I shall be attending their London Bootcamps. Thanks Staff R Staff W and Chief x*

  • What a week that was!

    Found the week really tough and at times wondered what the hell I was doing there. BUT Staff W and Staff M were nothing short of amazing I can not thank them enough for there support and enthusiasm. And now the week is over and I feel incredible it was all worth it, and I actually look back thinking what a life changing week that was and yes I would actually do it all again. I was lucky enough to be with a great group of people and the chef did an amazing job too, and also not forgetting Charlotte for the fab massages. I unfortunately do have one grievance and that being no hot water for my bath.*

  • It really works!

    Prior to arrival at camp I read other reviews and looked with interest at other people's results. When I read that the average weight loss for a lady is 8 lb I thought that 5 lb's would do me. After a week of intense exercise led by 2 of the most incredibly motivating people I have met, (Staff W and Staff M), much to my delight I had lost 8.4 lbs and 5.4 inches. I discovered I could push myself more than I thought and it has given me self belief.Thank you so much.*

  • AMAZING & GREAT fun, motivating staff, immediate results A+++++

    I went along to the week long Marbella Bootcamp in March. The transfer from the airport went smooth, the villa's were STUNNING and the first day was getting all of the admin squared away. Sunday we got going at 7am and from then on it was GIVE IT YOUR ALLLLL!!!. The staff were incredible, they motivated and encouraged and just when you thought you didn't have anything else to give, you'd pull another bunch of energy out of the bag. The food was small portions but very delicious and it just proves that you don't ACTUALLY NEED that much food anyway. We were on the go throughout the entire day and I wasn't hungry. The exercises were very varied, always challenging and varying levels of fitness within the group were complete opposite ends of the spectrum however everyone gave it their everything and we ALL used up everything we had. Staff R, M, W, Jo and Chef were the BEST!!!! They always had a smile on their chops which always helped pull us through. Jo is a real Sweetheart & the Mummy of the group, making sure us girlies were all OK and looking after any of us who had pushed ourselves to our limits (including me). I have to say that this Bootcamp is a life-changer. I lost more weight then i'd expected (9st10lb to 9st3lb) and have lost another 2lbs in two weeks since coming back. Reason for this is that they educate you also, make you more aware of what you are putting in your mouth and it transforms your life! I no longer drink caffeine, I have pretty much cut sugar out of my diet, my cupboards & fridge are unrecognisable and our food is much healthier and food bills are lower. So, all-in-all it was a fantastic week, I feel fantastic & from now onwards I will be attending both the day bootcamps & next Spring I will be at another week long Bootcamp. See you all there :0) X*

    What an amazing week - the staff were all really friendly, supportive and encouraging in helping me achieve my goals. The activities were thoroughly enjoyable and gave me the opportunity to test myself both mentally and physically, helping me achieve things I did not know I could do! The food was delicious and all prepared fresh by the on site chef. And finally, it all took place in a truly stunning location. I feel like the week has awakened a new me and I am enjoying continuing my journey now I am back home. Thank you so much to the whole Prestige Team, you have given me a new lease on life and I will always be grateful.*

    Boot camp has really kicked me in the right direction, I feel so much fitter & healthier.my body shape changed within a week, my attitude towards food had changed, didn't realise how much rubbish I was putting into my body,learnt a lot about myself & I know that only I can sustain that change. The staff were fantastic, inspiring & motivational, their tanasity & drive is infectious, I would recommend this to anyone, best money I have spent*

  • MENTAL!!

    I wasn't sure what to expect, I train 6/7 times a week, mainly cross fit and I was worried it may not be hard enough for me, well after the first mornings session i had that arrogance whipped out of me!! The trainers were amazing in their knowledge, commitment and motivation and Jo was always there to take care of my moans and niggles (mainly about the amount of food I was receiving). I was used to eating 3000+ calories a day, so the drop was really tough, although we came to a compromise which meant I was not starving all day, it was still a struggle but I have learned that I don't need to eat that much to have enough energy for training whilst still building muscle. So out have gone the protein bars and I have cut my sugar intake massively. I lost around 2kg of body fat around my waist and hips to become leaner and at the grand old age of 44 I now finally have that 6 pack!! Not sure how long for but hey!! The venue was stunning, the views amazing, the beach.. Sandy, the food superb although I did miss the salt!Whatever your fitness level or goals it can be achieved with Prestige! Thanks to all the Staff, Jo and Chef and all the beautiful people I met, I shall be back.*

  • This is THE BootCamp to go to!

    Having tried another bootcamp several years ago, I was ready for a new go. With horrorjoy I arrived the site in Benahavis, and since only a triple room was available, I was a bit excited who my room mates would be - and it couldnĀ“t have been better. The NAP team was established, and we cheered each other on during this week. The Staff was awesome. So dedicated, knowledgeable and they pushed you, in a positive way, so that you could do a little bit more than you thought you could. The excercises varied from day to day, and they were short but intense, so you never had the time to "hate" it. After dinner you had time for massages if you wanted - which I highly recommend.The food was excellent, tasty and succulent, but ooh so small portions. You can have bigger portions, but if you want results... The group of 27 people bonded, and we had good fun. Everyone was looking after one another, and we were a great team. If you want to improve your body, either toning, strengthening or cardio - in just a week, this is the place to do it, BUT remember nothing comes for free. You have to work for it! The more you put in, the more you will receive regarding results. I lost 13pounds and 11 inches, and i improved both strength and toning. Yes it was tough, this is no picnic in the sun,but you felt so good at the end of each day. I would do it again (but not if you asked med the second last day though). Prestige Camp is definitely the place to go!*

  • Fantastic boot camp experience

    I had a fantastic experience with prestige bootcamp in Marbella. All the staff were fantastic and encouraging. Staff R supported me to reach my potential and push myself. He have me confidence to achieve what I thought was un achievable and I am very great full . Every day was different so you did not get bored or thought you could not face the next day activities. You were well cared for and they made it such an enjoyable experience.*

  • Hard work, fun & amazing results

    I was worried about 28 people in the Camp, but there was no need for two reasons. 1) The group were just amazing, inspirational & fun. 2) The trainers knew perfectly what are individual needs were & split us up into three groups all the time.My personal results were just amazing & I thank everyone in the Camp because they all played a part.Staff R, W, T, Joe & Chef were inspirational, they knew the ones to push, they knew when it was time for some to rest & they focus on having FUN at the same time.I don't think 5 STARS are enough.Thank youDerek WarwickPresident British Racing Drivers Club (BRDC)*

  • 6 stars - yes really!

    I attended a one week camp in Suffolk in August having never done a bootcamp before.I arrived at camp with below average fitness and my Sporty Spice days firmly in the dim and distant past. Although I was sure I would end the week fitter and healthier, I wasn't sure quite how I was going to achieve it, except that it would be damn hard work! Well, I'm happy to say that not only did I come away fitter and healthier, but also full of life, energy and a bit of a tan! Plus I lost 11lbs. Result!I was met at the train station by a very friendly and welcoming fellow scouser Staff R, and we were driven the short distance to the beautiful Suffolk residence that was to be our home for the next week. I was introduced to my fellow campers who came from all walks of life, with varying fitness levels, ages and backgrounds. Some had made the journey from abroad, some were first-timers like me and many were returning campers. Our first evening was spent getting to know everyone and being introduced to our trainers for the coming week, Staff R and Staff W. They welcomed us all and took us through the timetable for the week. They recommended we all get an early night ready for the following morning.What followed was a wonderful week of fun, varied individual and team activities designed to bring the best out of you, both physically and mentally, whilst all the time being encouraged and motivated by the most professional, caring and funny people I have ever met. They very quickly understood each individuals capability and took the time to make sure everyone got the most out of each and every activity, every day. This created a great sense of camaraderie within the group and we all benefitted from this positive environment.Food is very important when you are exercising your socks off! The food was of excellent quality, always freshly prepared and full of flavour. Special dietary requirements were also very well catered for (special thanks Staff R). They have definitely taken the time to create a delicious, nutritionally balanced menu and it shows.I would say to anyone reading this who is in two minds about whether to take the plunge JUST DO IT! I was just like you, researching bootcamps online, not sure which one to choose, reading these same reviews thinking surely they can't be as good as everyone is saying but to their absolute credit, they really are. You will find yourself energised and revitalised, wanting to go that extra mile and achieving results you didn't think you were capable of. I certainly did. The level of commitment, passion and dedication shown by Staff R, Staff W and everyone at Prestige in wanting to help transform the lives of others is truly admirable and genuinely rare these days. It is no surprise that year after year they have so many returning happy campers. It is a true testament to Staff R and his team. Bootcamps are never easy but Prestige make it fun and above all achievable. There is never a dull moment and as challenging as it is, you can't help but smile and enjoy the positive, relaxed atmosphere they create. It was and remains one of the best things I have ever done and I honestly can't fault my time with them. They are excellent at what they do. Even now, when friends and family (and even my neighbour's 11 year old son and his little friend) comment on how good I'm looking or how happy I am, I can wholeheartedly say Prestige Bootcamp is the reason. Three months on and I'm still on a high so if you have decided you want to do something positive for yourself and you care about your physical and mental wellbeing, then I have no hesitation in recommending Prestige.This truly is an exceptional camp run by exceptional people.*

  • Challenge yourself and surprise yourself.

    I attended the Prestige Spain bootcamp in November 2014.I went to Spain with the sole intention of losing weight. Really simple goal. Id recently started my weight loss journey and I wanted a fitness kick in the right direction to help me stay focused through the dangers of the upcoming festive season. Looking back, I think I grossly underestimated what Prestige is all about. I think to refer to my week in Spain simply as a weightloss camp does a great disservice to Prestige. This was a week about pushing beyond the mental and physical limits I had set upon myself for many years. It was a week about finding that little bit of extra strength to keep going when I thought I was finished. It was a week about appreciating the amazing things my body can achieve as imperfect as it is. The weightloss was a (very welcome!) by-product of all of this. I think the number of return visitors to Spain demonstrates how good this experience is. There was a surprising range of ages, nationalities and fitness levels. Each person has their own story and goals, and each person receives the right amount of attention to ensure they achieve their goals. Being one of the largest and least athletic in the group was intimidating at first, but I used the limitless enthusiasm of the instructors and the unwavering group spirit to push through a tough first couple of days to finish the week strong. The instructors Staff R, M, W and Jo really are at the top of their game. There would be no Prestige without staff of this caliber. Their experience and education means that they really know how to get the best (and more!) out of everyone. I went to Spain with a mental list of things in my head that I just dont do. I did them. And I will do them again! Every activity can be adapted to your fitness level so you will work hard, regardless. The accommodation is a series of stunning villas in a very luxurious part of Marbella. Gorgeous views, comfortable rooms, swimming pools, hot tubs, a cinema they cannot be faulted. The food was wholesome and incredibly tasty the chef did a great job and paid attention to any special dietary requirements. I will be honest and say that I wanted more food, but after a poor diet for many years (and eating way too much!) I re-learned what a reasonable portion is. I was also reminded what real food cooked from scratch in a kitchen (rather than coming from a packet) tastes like. So, what now? I left Spain feeling proud of what Id been able to achieve in just 6 days. I also felt incredibly excited knowing what I was going to achieve in the future if I kept up the hard work. A couple of weeks later, I still feel that there are no limits as to what I can do. My workouts are more effective, Im still eating well and Ive set myself a number of fitness-related goals for 2015 - ranging from a hiking holiday to taking part in a local 10k race to keep me focused. However, the one goal Im really looking forward too is returning to Prestige Spain lighter, stronger, fitter and faster, and doing it all again. But better :-)A challenging, fun and enlightening experience. Highly recommended, regardless of fitness level.*

  • Gold Standard Bootcamp - have fun, lose inches/lbs, reach your goals

    I have just returned from my third bootcamp at Prestige.This organisation knows how to tick every box and clearly has a winning formula , as many people return time and time again.Exceptional , professional, friendly, fun and motivating trainers, Staff R, Staff W and Staff M help every person, whatever their ability to be their best, help achieve each personal goal, and maybe exceed expectations.Workouts are varied and intense but you will always end your day with a huge smile of achievement.Beautiful surroundings, top quality food, slick operational handling of over 30 eager participants this time.

  • As Nike says Just Do it

    Just had an amazing second bootcamp experience with Prestige Bootcamp in Spain as a self confessed bootcamp addict I've tried all the major ones over a period of years and took the plunge with Prestige in October at there Devon camp which was fantastic. As part of a 8 week health kick I attended another bootcamp in Spain for 3 weeks before finishing up at Prestige for my final week as I knew from my devon experience it would be a hard week The Spanish villas are amazing the last word in luxury from the 3 pools and the indoor pool & sauna to the amazing cinema with 1500 films to watch ( if your not to tired in the evenings) everything was perfect We were extremely lucky weather wise as it was a perfect week and we exercised every morning on the beach before returning back to the villas for lunch and more exercise On day 3, we did an amazing all day hike into the surrounding mountains and Staff W & Staff M were great they seemed to know exactly when to stop so that we could catch our breath before continuing upwards and onwards . Just as you thought you were about to drop on your feet Staff W would break for a few minutes . I'm amazed that I was able to do such an intense hike by day 3 but the encouragement of Staff W & Staff M made it possible I did think initially that it would be a bit cliquey as it seemed that of the 30 people attending around 20 of them had been before and knew each other but this was defiantly not the case . Everyone was fantastic friendly and encouraging with lots of banter which made a brilliant friendly environment for the week to come It's a well run slick operation from the pick up arrangements to the exercise regime, every day is different, no class is the same so you don't get bored . With over 30 people the levels of fitness was very diverse from some who could give The Terminator a run for his money in terms of fitness, to others who hadn't exercised for many years, to people who just wanted to get fit and lose some weight. But this really didn't matter as the Trainers Staff R, Staff W & Staff M were brilliant in accommodating everyone's needs and abilities to ensure they got the maximum effect . Ages ranged from 25 to 65 and being a mixed camp of both men and women was brilliant atmosphere For the first time in 8 weeks since beginning my health kick when running along the beach promenade one morning I felt fit and healthy and all the hard work was finally paying off . I lost 14 inches and 8lbs which was amazing considering I have been on 4 weeks on continuous bootcamps and I expected my weight loss to slow down a bit You would never think that a week of such intense exercise could be such fun but it really was The staff all take the time to get to know you and encourage you and Staff R is inspirational full of eagerly and encouragement*

  • Simply can't recommend this enough

    So I have waited nearly 6 weeks to write a review - why? - because I wanted it to be genuine and not an immediate emotional response having just finished bootcamp and surviving it :-) . I didn't really look into this before I left, I just went on a recommendation from a friend. I'm naturally sporty but long working hours in the city and extensive international travel had taken its toll on my body. I was overweight, unfit, tired and miserable. Fuelled by coffee (8-10 a day) and biscuits (not saying!) and sustaining the day with treats, I knew I couldnt continue. Bootcamp sounded like the push I needed to re-start my fitness drive. Bootcamp surpassed my expectations it wasnt easy, but its not meant to be! but the Staff were wired to drive you when they knew you had more and rest you when they felt it was necessary highly experienced and very intuitive.So why was it so good? 1) The staff were simply outstanding - Staff R, Staff T, Staff W, Jo and Chef. They made you want to give it everything you have. 2) The accommodation and food were both excellent 3) The workout variety kept you engaged and helped you really understand what you are good at and where you need to work 4) I learnt many new work-out tips that were entirely transferable to work and the gym 5) Id like to go back.What difference has it made 6 weeks on ? 1) The detox taught me that I dont need to be fuelled by coffee so much so that I havent had a cup since! 2) I make different choices with food since gaining a much better understanding of nutritional values. Ive not eaten bread since my return even though toast was my favourite and I was eating bread at least once a day 3) I have exercised 4 times+ a week since my return, varying my workouts to make sure I working my whole body rather than just running 4) My weight is as it was when I left camp 6 weeks ago and Ive toned further and due to my diet, Im not bloated! 5) I actually drink water and herbal teas because I want to 6) the body blast workouts really can be done at home in 20 mins and I do them! (so long as you re-locate venerable glass teapots!)Conclusion for me, it worked. I set goals, surpassed them and am still working on them.Prestige I cant thank you enough!October Stormtrouper - Tracy*

  • Money well spent

    I felt lousy, unfit and needed to do something different.So decided to do a totally different holiday. I decided to spent 60 minutes on the internet then decide what to do, well after 10 minutes a luxury boot camp was for me. I told my husband I needed to go and would he want to! Brill straight away he said yes.Prestige Boot camp ticked all the right boxes.When you are picked up everyone feels trepidation and wanders what the goodness have I let myself in for but hey your there so everyone rolls with it.The Spain accommodation, wow.All the trainers, positive, fit, happy, motivational and inspire you to reach your personal goals.The training is handwork but fun and unpredictable so even more funI loved the food. In all my born days I have never tasted and enjoyed an orange so much.The teamwork made the boot camp enjoyable and me and my husband generally like a holiday away from people!The massages well well worth the money and that was the only thing I spent extra money on.My husband loved the experience and we both came back home healthy happy and inspired.Since our return we follow the advice, we exercise most days because we want to and best of all we have decided after 18 months without a dog we shall be getting one after Christmas, so walks and exercise every day. IF I am one of those people who live to be 100, I want to be as healthy as I can be.I have been away many times, home and abroad and I can honestly say this holiday I really did come home refreshed, motivated and relaxedI have never written a review before but I will now sum up Boot camp in one wordBRILLIANT.BOOT CAMP IS BRILLIANT.*

  • Lose to keep

    In my week in Devon I lost (some ;-)) bad habits, weight and flab and jumpstarted the new me. A month later, I'm pretty darn fit, still losing some weight and inches (more slowly of course) and am generally living more healthily.The week can get pretty intense (you basically only get to decide when to go to bed) but you can really test your limits and come away a stronger woman (or man, I presume).Staff W and P did an excellent job motivating us to keep going and they picked up on bad moods as well, letting us play a game etc. when we got really fed up.The food was excellent too, thank you chef, and I started using some of the recipes already (chia seeds anyone?).The only thing less than excellent was my room; lots of noise from the kitchen/living room, stuffy - please get some thermostats for the rooms - and a horrible plastic sheet on the bed.Overall well worth the pain, sweat and tears though!*

  • Fun, challenging, laughter, tears, mind-blowing, the greatest week of my life

    Probably the hardest week of my life physically. Have worked just as hard when I was younger but approaching my 60th birthday the week was a big challenge. Am so glad I've done it, feel proud of myself for achieving all the activities and some I didn't think I would manage.The "Staffs R & W" are truly inspirational and awesome: I couldn't have finished the week without their enthusiasm - as well as my fellow Campers who encouraged me all the way.I know I can achieve anything now. Life is just SO amazing. Love Jxx*

  • Awesome, amazing and well worth it

    I love sport and am relatively healthy and so thought what a great way to spend a week's holiday doing sport in the Spanish sunshine. However I didn't really prepare myself mentally for the detox, minimal sun lounger / pool time and portion control so there were tough moments. From the moment you are met at the airport the camp is exceptionally well run. The team have a very slick operation constantly adjusting their plan to accomodate weather and energy levels of the group and I was super impressed by the way the Staff, Jo and Chef work with the guests to encourage but not bully and make sure you feel it is all about your choice, you are not forced to do anything and you can always ask for more food - but you'll find you want to do everything suggested by the team. Any niggles and injuries were swiftly dealt with and Staff could always find ways to accomodate individual limitations, the massage therapists in Spain were also very effective at releasing tight muscles. The standard of accomodation in Spain was first class. What has really impressed me is that two weeks after my return I still feel super charged, energised and remotivated and caffine free! I'd say do it no matter how fit and healthy you are, we all have room for improvement (or just treat yourself to a week of looking after you).*

  • Challenging Fun Life Changing

    I have recently got back from the Spain boot camp with Prestige and looking back wish I was stil there. Staff R , W & T were amazingly motivating and educational at the same time. I went with only moderate fitness levels with the intention of boosting my appetite for fitness and loose weight, but it was so much more than I expected. The villa we stayed in was amazing and made the down time from training an enjoyable relaxing experience and while the training was hard it was catered to everyones fitness levels while still having fun. I managed to loose 21lbs in one week which was pretty amazing but came away with a new understanding on what to eat and when and also how much as my portions were far to big before. I have come back to the Uk with a changed diet a fresh approach to exercise and the confidence to know how far and much I can push my body. I can't thank the staff enough and even though I had a injury on day 3 they catered exercise around this to allow me to continue to train. The proof is the pudding 21lbs 14inches of body size decrease in one week and feeling a million times better than before I went. I will definetly be going again and can really recommend this for people from all walks of life.*

  • What a week!

    Bootcamp is never easy physically or mentally, but the rewards are huge, and we achieved much more than we ever thought possible. This was the best bootcamp I've been on. Staff W and Staff P - you challenged us, made us laugh, kept us going and inspired us to change our lives. You are the best! And as for Chef . wow! Thank you all so, so much.*

  • The best bootcamp / change-your-life company out there

    i have been to several bootcamps - first with other companies - now only with Prestige. Most attendees at Prestige are returnees. Prestige emphasise health and lasting life-style changes. Other bootcamp companies beast you into the ground. This is counter-productive. At Prestige you lose just as much weight - they push you hard, but are not out to break you. The staff are wonderfully inspirational and supportive. I would like to go once a year for the rest of my life. You come home feeling and looking like a new person. Do it - it will change your life !!!!*

  • Simply amazing week

    The two Staffs ( W and P) were committed and passionate and very supportive and approachable while continuing to push us to our limits. I really trusted them by the end of the week!The programme was varied which was great. It felt like a tough, tough endurance test and I passed it! The food outstanding and Chef R , very passionate informative and entertaining.The accommodation overall was good. Clean and warm and comfortable.The only critisicm I have about the whole week was that the mattress on my bed is due for replacement and was very uncomfortable. ( This was the double room upstairs at the barn end of the winery.)Delighted with the detox and weight loss and increase in my fitness. Hurrah !*

  • An exceptionally rewarding five days

    The Prestige trainers are extremely motivated and passionate individuals who inspire you to achieve more than you believe is possible. In only five days, I lost several pounds and inches, but more importantly left re-energised and ready to embrace new fitness goals in my training. While we exercised hard each day, the trainers also ensured we stretched well and rested to avoid injuries. I spent the week with a lovely group of people, many of whom had attended Prestige boot camps before. Believe all the positive reviews! The Prestige boot camp is an exceptional experience which has guests returning year after year.*

  • The optimum environment to achieve your best

    I spent two weeks at the Suffolk camp in early August and it was better than I ever could have expected.After having spent five months backpacking through the UK and central Europe I felt sluggish, worn down and nowhere near as fit as I was when I started travelling. I wanted to do something for myself and was looking for some type of health retreat or boot camp to spend some time at before heading home to Australia.Prestige Boot Camp was an absolutely amazing experience. The training sessions were always varied and allowed you to push yourself to do your best. The food was delicious and meal times were always a fantastic opportunity to discover new foods and cooking methods, as well as bonding with other campers. Chef did a fantastic job catering to all the campers dietary needs and was always more than happy to answer any and all questions about the meals he was serving and food in general. The accommodation and grounds were simply stunning. The house was very spacious with comfortable rooms which allowed for relaxing and socialising at the end of the day.Nevertheless it is the staff that sets Prestige Boot Camp above the rest. Staff R, Staff W, Staff T and Jo are all extremely passionate about what they do and want nothing more than to be able to help and inspire others to taken hold of their own health and make a change for the better. At no stage was there any negativity or shouting coming from the staff to goad campers into training harder, only positivity, encouragement and support. The staff inspire good attitudes to best ensure lasting results long after the camp ends.Having been back home in Australia for two weeks now I can really see the difference in myself and my friends and family have remarked on it too. Prestige Boot Camp not only helped me achieve my short term goals whilst on camp but have also provided me with the tools and the mindset needed to be able to continue my journey towards and fitter, happy and healthier me.I would like nothing more than to return to Prestige to attend more camps, however the commute to both the UK and Spain locations from Australia is somewhat limiting.*

  • Another fabulous week with great results!

    This is my 4th Prestige experience and my results never cease to amaze me. I didn't think that a 5 day bootcamp would give me such good results as those I achieved on my previous 7 day ones but I did so well losing 8lbs and 9 inches! Just the kick start back into a healthy lifestyle I needed following a long holiday.Staff R and Staff W were, as always their normal energetic, encouraging and passionate selves offering their expertise advice to all abilities in the group.Devon is an amazing location for the bootcamp and definitely my favourite. The hikes along the Jurassic Coast are extremely challenging but the views are just breathtaking!The accommodation is clean and comfortable and the newly installed ensuites, luxurious.All in all a fabulous week and the group was just lovely! I met some great friends!*

  • Best fitness experience ever!

    Last year I did a running camp because I'm really passioned about running but it was a very one-sided. Therefore I decided this time to join a boot camp especially to build up core strength. This was my first boot camp and I wanted to be pushed to my limits - and I was. It was the best fitness experience I ever had! Both staff were really fantastic! Great mixture of motivation, challenge and humor. I felt their passion about sport and this rubbed off to myself. It was a great mixture of different cardio and strength exercises and almost no additional equipment has been necessary. All exercises can be completed at home and due to the motivation both staff gave to me I managed to continue exercising at home.I also loved the atmosphere they created. They structured the exercises in a way that everybody can perform them according to own ability and on the same hand they created also great team spirit and nobody felt alone or lost. And they ticked off all popular excuses. Long working hours? No excuse! They also did workouts taking 5 minutes only and afterwards I was completely exhausted But it felt really fantastic to achieve all the challenges!So the great news: no excuses! A fantastic experience and I already booked my next Prestige Boot Camp.Thank you, Staff W and Staff T! Excellent job!*

    It was a great experience, Staff R and Staff W were excellent, always pushing and encouraging you to make you achieve the very best you could and always praising effort. They are passionate about fitness, exercise and diet and pass on the love of it to everyone-it was brilliant. I will continue with the new things I have learned and try to become fitter and healthier*

  • Best one ever!

    2 days ago my son and myself returned home from Prestige Boot Camp in Suffolk. What a glorious place. I feel energetic, have lost 8 lbs and I have learnt my exercise capabilities even with my various health issues. The staff are unbelievable. They are understanding, helpful, attentive, professional, incredibly knowledgeable and approachable. There was such a good vibe and atmosphere between not only the other guests and us but between the staff and the group. The chef was wonderful and adapted to our needs whenever circumstances required. Staff W and Staff T make such a good team and their humour and jokes kept us going. I will definitely be going again but this time with my husband. Thank-you to you all for helping my son and myself attain a new lease if life.*

  • A fantastic and motivating week in Devon

    This is my third bootcamp with Prestige and it did not disappoint. It is not an easy week by any means, in fact it is extremely tough at times but with self application and the help of Staff R, Staff W and Jo I have come back feeling great. I feel so much fitter, am so much more informed about both exercise and nutrition and I have lost inches and pounds as an added bonus.Between exercise sessions Chef produces food in healthy small portions all of which taste fantastic.Everyone should find time to put a challenging and thoroughly rewarding week with Prestige into their lives.*

  • Left camp with less inches but gained an incredible experience, encouragement and guidance!

    My experience with Prestidge Boot Camp was unforgettable, an experience which is so hard to put in words, an experience between me and the team! I went having no idea what I was letting myself in for, it was a challenging week, but the trainers were so welcoming and encouraging! I gained so much information about health, fitness and excerise programmes, which has made me so much more confident, as I now know what I am doing is actually beneficial! Overall the villas were luxurious, the trainers were incredible, the food was delicious and the people I met made the week unforgettable. I couldn't recommend Prestidge Boot Camp any more! If you don't think it's for you, you're kidding yourself, as they cater for everyone! (I can now do a press up!!) I hope to have another Prestidge experience in the near future!*

  • 5 star lifestyle camp!!! THANK YOU PRESTIGE

    I cant thank the guys at prestige for helping me to learn about the new healthy lifestyle i can lead! From being a rather notice exerciser and binge eater (my most dialled number was dominos pizza) i cant believe that how much the prestige guys have turned my world around. We were lucky enough to go on their Marbella boot camp and the location made the experience even more enjoyable. don't get me wrong getting up at 6am to exercise in the heat was tough but after your delicious dinner in the evening having free time to relax by the pool and sunbath in the luxury villas made it all worth it. The villas were all absolutely beautiful and really enjoyed jumping into my comfy bed!The food was absolutely delicious.Ben the chef really cooked up a storm and most importantly catered for my weird food allergies and even prepared me my own special snacks and food. Also getting the recipes sent through to me means that i can carry on eating healthy fabulous meals and proved that we can eat healthy delicious meals which provide all the nutrients you need to set you up for the whole day and you don't need to stuff your face to be able to achieve 7 hours of hard core exercise.The activities were super enjoyable and varied which meant i loved getting up to see what new challenge was in store for each day and how far i could push my body. Also has given me a great chance to learn all different exercises i can carry on at home.The group of people who were on the Marbs boot camp were all such wonderful people to share this journey with and we have set up dates to all meet up again and do more boot camps. The positive attitude of everyone meant that we were all one big team on the boot camp and everyone really encouraged each other and helped everyone along the road. (literally at times)Last but not least i must mention the staff and all of the prestige crew. I cant fault them in any way shape or form. The staff were amazing PTs and really helped you to gain that positive mental attitude you need to push yourself and taught us amazing exercises that i can use for the rest of my life. They really know their stuff and it was so wonderful to have that trust with a group of chaps to engage and encourage you. Chef Ben was lovely and really cooked up wonderful dishes. Frankie was actually on our boot camp and is super fit!! it was really lovely to have her along with the boot campers journey with us. Finally Jo was absolutely amazing at keeping me motivated and despite there being times i thought i couldn't continue she always boosted my morale and kept me going and i couldn't have done the week without her! I would recommend (and already have to my friends) prestige boot camp because i believe they give a 5 star lifestyle camp where you can really feel their passion into helping you achieve a healthier lifestyle. 6 months ago you would have found me with a slice of pizza in my hand and the thought of visiting the gym filled me with dread, NOW I CANT WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT BOOT CAMP!!! SIGN ME UP. thank you prestige!!!! xxx*

  • Incredible life changing week

    I'd recommend a week with the guys from prestige to absolutely anyone of any fitness level. They have re-ignited my passion for a healthier lifestyle. The whole week was amazing, from the incredible villas, the amazing food and of course the most professional and motivational team of trainers you could ever have imagined. I can't wait to book on another prestige camp.Thank you so much Steve x*

  • Absolutely the best!

    This was my second visit to Prestige Bootcamp in Spain. Having tried other similar bootcamps in the UK, I can undoubtedly say that this is the best one currently in the market. The location is ideal, away from the city centre but a short drive from the beach. The villas are very luxurious (indoor and outdoor swimming pools, sauna, Jacuzzi, cinema room) and extremely comfortable. The food is incredible; tasty and although not plentiful (otherwise it would defeat the purpose), it doesn't leave you hungry. The chef also caters for everyones dietary requirements and is very creative - who knew you could make cuscus out of cauliflower.... But the best part of Prestige bootcamp is its trainers and facilitators. From the moment you book the course, up until you're dropped off at the airport, everyone wants to ensure you have a great time and more importantly, achieve your goals. The trainers (Staff) are real experts in health and fitness, and create an activity programme that is varied with hikes, boxing sessions, circuit training, interval and resistance classes, swimming, etc.Although they were running at full capacity on both my visits to the bootcamp, the Staff somehow manage to give everyone individual attention. Truly amazing. Now for the results. If you're prepared to work hard, I can guarantee that you will achieve great results. Like I have done. But more importantly, these two weeks have thought me to have a better relationship with food and not just that, I now have the confidence to try new exercises that I never would have done in the past. Anyone who wants to live a healthier lifestyle, improve their fitness levels or just switch off from the busy everyday life for a week, should try Prestige.*

  • An Amazing and life changing experience! Thank you!

    A fantastic and inspiring week spent at the Marbella Bootcamp in Spain in May 2014. Firstly, I have to say that I am surprised to read any review that says that this camp is only for people with a basic level of fitness. Trust me, this is for everyone, despite size, fitness or ability and you will be supported and challenged to achieve your own potential. From the variety of structured exercise (mountain climbing, surfing, circuits, running etc.), to the fabulous accommodation and excellent food this is a truly professional experience, where you will leave feeling motivated to achieve your goals. Yes you will lose weight and inches, but more importantly you will learn some basic principles that will change your perspective on diet and exercise for ever. It is tough at times, but no one is belittled or humiliated and everyone is only encouraged to give their personal best. Most importantly you always feel safe and confident with the excellent team of staff and their knowledge and passion for you to succeed is contagious. From the fabulous organisation by Jo and Frankie, to the delicious food made daily by Ben the chef to the incredible PT staff R, H and W the week exceeded my expectations on every level. My only criticism would be that you can't take Staff R home with you to keep the energy going as he is truly amazing! However, he is only ever an email away if you need that little bit more encouragement. So, if you want to change in your life and become fitter and healthier with people that truly care and can help you achieve more, then this is the boocamp for you. Thank you to all at Prestige! I miss it already and will definitely be back! Clare T.*
