Our Fitter, Stronger philosophy
Fitter, Stronger is a luxury health-boosting fitness retreat, with guest speakers including double Olympic gold medalist James Cracknell, double Paralympic gold medalist Natasha Baker MBE and a top team of nutritionists and fitness professionals
At Fitter, Stronger, we offer you a fitness break with a sustainable, realistic approach to exercise and nutrition that fits in with busy lives, in luxurious, peaceful, rural locations – Chewton Glen Hotel, on the edge of the New Forest and bordered by Highcliffe beach, and Buxted Park Hotel, in Buxted, East Sussex, on the edge of the Ashdown Forest.
We want you to maintain long-term improvement. We are not a quick weight-loss fix, so you won’t be weighed or measured.
During a typical fitness retreat weekend, you’ll be guided on hikes, take part in cardio, bodyweight and core sessions to develop strength and stamina and unwind in gentle Pilates classes, with our expert coaches. All exercise is scaled for individuals, according to ability and agility. We work with complete beginners, those recovering from illness and injury and those who have exercised all their lives.
You’ll enjoy delicious, filling, nutrient-dense food and learn how to keep your body efficiently fuelled, so it can serve you well in the future. And our speakers will help motivate you and join you for dinner.
Our aim is that you leave us confident and motivated to maintain a Fitter, Stronger you.

When I entered the World Masters Badminton Championships in September 2015, I was contemplating how to improve my game. I already had a coach and played at least 4 times a week…. but I wanted a gold medal this time. I wondered if a personal trainer might make the difference. That’s when I met Paula. Her training made me fitter and stronger but she added something extra. She was always positive, enthusiastic and encouraging. She gave me such confidence and a conviction that I could do it – and I did. I cannot praise her highly enough for her constant support. Thank-you Paula.
Dear Paula, What a fun weekend, full of laughs and memories are definitely made of times like this. I have seen us all grow in confidence and health in these few days away. I'm going to resume walking again, it's something I always used to do. I was inspired by Scott and that really appeals to me as it makes the journey more important than the destination which is the way I feel I benefit from living my life now. What a wonderful idea it was for you to think your vision could become a reality and bring people like us together for a few days. To relax, unwind but also stretch ourselves to see what we can achieve. Thank you Paula. Very best wishes, Fiona. PS. We have all made new friends.
I’m just reflecting on a fabulous fun weekend spent with a great group of people. My ribs still ache from laughing!! Your philosophy has certainly had a profound effect on my outlook for my future wellbeing and I congratulate you and your team for inspiring us all. I will definitely continue with Pilates, so please extend my sincere thanks to Simon for his patient and constructive advice. Your speakers were inspirational and their messages will certainly live with me. A weekend to remember ! Thank you all so much. Helen
Morning Paula, I hope you have had some time to relax since you got home. My husband says it sounds like my friend and I had a great time, and fitted in some exercise, which he wasn't expecting us to do at all! So thank you to you and your team, I hope your next batch of people embrace the weekend and get as much out of it as we did. Best wishes Paula, Fiona
