Trip Advisor, Aug 2011
Start each day with movement...
Stretch, vigorous walking and power breathing - in no other combination of movements do you get the same harmony of coordinating muscles and the same perfect circulation of blood. Aerobic exercise is vital to life - it speeds up the metabolism, burns fat and removes toxins stored in the body.
All Birchcreek programs start with guided, invigorating walks - the very best way to begin your day. Whatever your fitness level - from beginner to athlete - the daily morning walk is the way to wake up your metabolism and prepare the body for the day!
Some of our guests are already in a fitness regime, others are looking to kick
start one and others just looking for a fun active holiday from which they will
return home looking & feeling better! The atmosphere is non competitive and
we encourage everyone to work at their pace. Class sizes are small and non intimidating but challenging and cutting edge.
