FFLS Snowden retreat is here!  Snowdonia is a region in northwest Wales concentrated around the mountains and glacial landforms of Snowdonia National Park.  Mount Snowdon, offers views across the sea to Ireland. The park is also home to an extensive network of trails, over 100 lakes and craggy peaks. There is no better place for an action packed fitness retreat.  FFLS has a great itinerary for you, you will push your limits, break boundaries  and will leave feeling exhilarated...... AND WANTING MORE! 

Overview 

Upon arrival, you will be left to unload your luggage into your huge luxury bell tent! You will then be shown the high standard shower blocks & outdoor kitchen's before you are given time to relax with a hot drink and enjoy some down time after your journey.

Once refreshed you will be briefed about the itinerary and options, which can be interchangeable due to the unpredictable Welsh weather! Do not worry we will prepare you with what you need for every eventuality! 

Late afternoon there will be a Bootcamp, where you can fire up the muscles in preparation for the next morning when you will be climbing Snowdon! Don't worry all exercises will be scaled to your abilities! 

You can expected kettlebells, tyre's, nets and body weight exercises, followed by a nice cool down with stretching!

After your bootcamp you will have time to freshen up before gathering around a warm fire and cooking your own food to accompany side dishes and refreshments. This also gives time to discuss overall fitness and future goals as well as tapping into great nutritional advice.  Do not worry this evening in dispersed with plenty of laughs and a game or too before bed, you may be disturbed by the occasional Moo but

Snowdon Day! There are numerous ways to ascend Snowdon as you may already know, however the safest routes is the Lamberis path! It is one of the longest path's however it is also one of the safest and easiest although do not be deceived even though I have climbed Snowdon many times and I am physically able to rise to the challenge I have to sometimes stop and take a few moments, it will feel like a hell of a challenge but we will all be in it together, the only option to opt out is at the half way house, if at this point you have to stop, you will still have to walk down with a colleague.  From the half way house to the summit is truly where the challenge begins, I will of course help you and break down each section at a time! The majority of you if not all of you will reach the summit where you will have photo opportunities and will be able to basque in the glory of your epic climb! I am very respectful of the local experts advice, and if they advice there is a risk to your safety or your life we will be taking on other challenges instead but only as a last resort! Generally we will climb Snowdon in most conditions so .....      BE FFLS READY!

We will head to the base of the mountain by approx 9am after a nutritional breakfast.  Of course you will need energy on the way as well as additional clothing, this will all be explained in the initial guidance upon booking but also in the braiding after arrival, there will be some reserves but not much so its vital you ensure you cater for your needs on the mountain.  You need to allow 6-7 hours for assent and decent, as you may already know Snowdon has had its fair share of fatalities although this is rare do not under-estimate the terrain or how rapidly clear skies and sunshine can turn to snow and wind.  We will of course be there to help you the whole way and we do break things down with stops etc so there is plenty of time to assess the weather and how you feel, the only way is down so while we encourage you to reach the top and push through if we feel your health safety or general well being is being compromised you will be able to descend with an experienced volunteer.  Once at the top you will have photo opportunities and a short break and then its for the long walk home! Although you are on a health retreat some of year a welcoming pub is at the bottom where you can get a warm drink or something extra to warm your cockles!  Additionally there is 2 shops where you can buy yourself something to commemorate the awesome experience you just achieved!

After your epic day you can be sure you will want a hot shower and some lovely food, so it will be back to base to do exactly that!  Again there will be some delicious food on offer which will be cooked on your camp fire, where you can relax, unwind, lie back and watch the starts recounting your memories from the day.  Expect to be very tired and wanting an early night and who can blame you as there is still fun to be had the following day!  After waking up and enjoying a delicious nutritious breakfast we will do some good stretching ready for kayaking if you fear water its likely this is still for you if you want to push your boudarieis just a little.  We use  "sit on top" kyacks they type that you do not need to roll out of, secondly you will have a wet suit and a life jacket and thirdly we stay close to the edge of the lake at all times which does provide mostly very shallow water.
