When it comes to fitness retreats and wellness escapes, there’s a reason our Norfolk Retreat has been the UKs No1 since we first opened the doors back in 2008. It’s a place that has changed thousands of lives, seen 86% of clients return, overhauled eating habits, celebrated the power of self-belief, educated, inspired and motivated, and so much more.
But there’s also a whole load of hidden gems and unknown secrets some members of our incredible community didn’t realise, so we thought we’d set the record straight for you. Read on to learn the 8 things you might not have known about this fitness haven where you can escape, exercise and explore:
Unknown No1: Enjoy an All-inclusive Stay
Our Norfolk Retreat is an all-inclusive experience, allowing you to focus fully on your health and fitness journey, without a thought given to the price of this or that. That means the prices you see on our website include absolutely everything, from your luxury accommodation to your nutrition-packed meals and, yepp, your six-hours of tailor-made training each day. No hidden fees or last-minute needs, everything is covered the moment you book your stay.
Unknown No.2: Open All Year-Round
Unlike most retreats, where they rent a place somewhere for a week to host their clients, our Norfolk Retreat is our headquarters, allowing us to be open all year round (minus a brief two-week break either side of Christmas). The reason for this is simple: we want our retreats to work for you when you want or need them, instead of you having to work around our dates. So, whether it's spring, summer, autumn, or winter, you can embark on your wellness journey whenever suits you best.
Unknown No.3: Beachside Location
Hiding in the wilds of the Wild Ken Hill estate, where wild horses roam and the distant sound of waves acts as your lullaby, our Norfolk Retreat is is just a short (sunrise) hike from the sandy shores of Heacham, one of the only places on the east coast that faces west, meaning you’ll get to enjoy the most soul-stirring sunsets across the water. But it’s not just about the candy floss coloured skies, the soothing sounds of the sea or the serene walks, because our beach workouts bring a whole new level of variety, impact and results.
Unknown No.4: World-Class Trainers
Ask anyone who has attended No1 Fitness Retreats and they’ll mention our team of truly world-class trainers who bring their expertise and passion to every single session. From former marines to fitness specialists with over 15 years experience in their fields, nutritionists to boxing coaches, our trainers are the reason we’re the UKs No1 fitness retreat and why we have an 86% client return rate. So whether you're a beginner or an advanced fitness enthusiast, you'll find the guidance you need to reach your goals.
Unknown No5: Chef-Prepared Meals
You cannot out-train a bad diet, which is why we take your nutrition so seriously. And to do that to the highest standard, our very own professional chef prepares and creates a delicious and nutritious meal plan tailored to each guest’s goal. And the best part: breakfast, lunch and dinner are all made from the freshest local ingredients, and provided with your dietary preferences and fitness objectives in mind. Trust us: your fitness success starts in our kitchen.
Unknown No.6: We’re Loved By Celebrities
From athletes to actors, presenters to influencers, musicians, models, Love Islanders, Dragon’s Den-ers, famous entrepreneurs, reality stars and more, our fitness retreat is the ultimate fitness escape for so many celebrities.

After all, these are people whose careers in the public eye mean they want and need to maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle.
Unknown No.7: State-of-the-Art Equipment
The reason we’re the best in the business is because we leave no stone unturned in helping you achieve your fitness goals, especially when it comes to the state-of-the-art equipment we invest in. Think top of the range ice baths to aid recovery and performance, industry-leading body metric machines (we’re one of the only retreats to boast an InBody 970, providing us with the most detailed insights into your body composition analysis possible), the very best in spinning bikes, the latest Jordan equipment and everything else.
