Cornwall Weekend Report
I have just returned from a fantastic weekend in Cornwall teaching FIT2FTE™ and Super Seven circuits. the event was organised by FIT2FTE's sponsors, 3NESS Luxury Fitness Weekenders.
The event began on Friday 17th May with a flight to Newquay eventually arriving at the hotel at 10.30pm. I had the company of fellow F2F instructor Claire Burton, plus Dee "Body Blitz" Kissi alongside the Director of 3NESS and my brother Paul Francis.
We travelled into St. Austell in the morning for a hearty breakfast followed by a local delight "tea and Scones". Wonderful!!
We then made our way to Polkyth Leisure Centre where our host Rachael met us with a hug and a smile. The Cornish Fitness fraternity arrived in their finest garms, looking fresh and fired up.
The event kicked off with Dee Body Blitzing them followed by a euphoric FIT2FTE™ session. After a short break Dee blitzed them again and after an emphatic motivational speech we dived head first into the irrepressible Super 7 Circuit with Claire cranking out the sets in fine form as my assistant. The group worked hard without compromise to technique, timing and a smile.
All in all a tremendous event with the likelihood of FIT2FTE™ being brought to this beautiful area in the near future.
Thanks again to the Cornish massive, 3NESS for their sponsorship, Rachael for her hospitality and to Claire and Dee, two individuals where beauty, humour, humility and ability are wonderfully balanced.
The next FIT2FTE™ Instructors Course i Sunday 7th June, 9-5pm. in London. More details to follow..
