So why choose Hillmotts?
The retreats at Hillmotts have been devised by co-owners, Cleo Collins and Neil McLaren. Neil who, when it comes to fitness and nutrition, has quite literally "been there, done that and got the t-shirt" and Cleo together came up with the concept whilst training Neil for the Great North Run. Extremely overweight and very unfit, Neil was coaxed by personal trainer, Cleo, to transform his life. In the space of 6 months he progressed from being someone who could hardly run for 30 continuous seconds without being completely out of breath to a man who lost 3 stone and could run 7 miles without breaking sweat. Neil went on to complete the Great North Run just a short 3 months later having lost a further stone in weight. It was the pinnacle of achievements for someone who had spent most of his life overweight, eating greasy, fast food.
The feeling of satisfaction was so enormous it spurred Neil and Cleo on to creating the Hillmotts Fitness Retreat offering individuals the chance to embark upon lifestyle changes focused on fitness and nutrition.
