What You Can Expect?
Comfortable Accommodation. With 15 different accommodation types to choose from guests can share a house with others, have their own luxury cottage or stay in one of the Glamping pods. Flexible accommodation to suit different budgets. Whatever room you choose the all inclusive price includes use of the indoor swimming pool, steam room, all meals, workouts and Cross Fit activities.
Local Food. Middlewick Farm Shop provide the chef with most of the ingredients so you know they are very local. Delicious, healthy food to keep you energised throughout your stay. The chef will cater to most dietary requirements and all meals come as vegan, vegetarian or meat options.
Cross Fit Gym Workouts Each day you will have a Cross Fit workout at Sweet Track Box. The workout will be suitable to all levels of fitness and for Elite, Regular and First time Cross Fit participants.
Farm Workout. Now this is the fun part that can only happen here at Middlewick. The outdoor sand horse riding arena becomes a gym for your stay. Over the past year Adam, the crossfit retreat founder, has been collecting an assortment of toys to play with in his sand pit. From tractor tires to chains to sandbags he has found some great fun ways to have a Cross Fit workout. We have even put up a metal climbing frame that stands in the arena. It is something everyone asks us about when they come to stay and we like to make up stories about what it is. The Farm workout is a favourite for everyone and you will spot Jonathan taking part every day.
Glastonbury Tor Every morning starts with a trip up Glastonbury Tor. Depending on the time of year this is usually for sunrise. The choice is yours whether to walk or run the 3km round trip. The views are incredible from the top of the Tor and worth the hard work to get there.
Yoga Two sessions of yoga are available per day. No experience necessary for the classes. A great way to relax and stretch.
Day Trips. Glastonbury town is just a short walk or drive away from Middlewick so you may choose to take time out of the retreat to explore the colourful town. If you stay for the 7 day or 4 day retreat there is a day trip to hike in Cheddar Gorge.
Making Friends. The CrossFit country retreats are suitable for all ages and abilities but the one thing that everyone has in common is being active. You don’t have to be experienced in CrossFit to come along and you don’t have to be superfit. We have had people aged from 19-60 on the retreats. People who ran up Glastonbury Tor every morning and those who struggled to just walk up it. Some who did every workout plus some extras while some just chose to do one a day. It is not a bootcamp, no one gets in trouble for not participating in everything. It is about having fun, getting fit and just as importantly making friends. Making friends with others and much more importantly making friends with yourself.
The next Cross Fit Country Retreat runs from the 20th – 27th September, 2019.
3 nights(Friday to Monday) from £450
4 nights(Monday to Friday) from £550
