FitFarms, Devon If you want to lose weight so badly that you're willing to get up at 6.15 every morning and subject yourself to a programme of dawn workouts, power walks, life-coaching sessions and nutrition workshops until past 7pm , every night for a week, this is the place. A women-only course, it isn't about strenuous effort for the already healthy, but about serious diet and exercise for those who are struggling to reach a shape they're happy with. After a week here, you will head home informed and inspired for a healthy year.
