A new boot camp spa retreat in Portugal is the perfect way to pamper yourself slim

If your image of diet boot camps is pain before pleasure, then take a look at the latest offering from New You Boot Camp.

The new spa retreat promises the same results as more hardcore versions, but with the added benefits of daily pampering and stress free surroundings.

Set in a stunning 5* boutique resort in a secluded part of the Algarve, the retreat promises that you will look and feel like a new person in just one week.

‘We have made sure that you will reach unprecedented results' says founder Sunny Moran.

The camp includes a range of daily exercise from hiking the mountains of Serra de Monchique to skipping along the breathtaking coast. Activities can be chosen individually to tailor results for each person.

After a hard day of training in the beautiful surroundings you can reward yourself with a relaxing spa treatment, available every evening.

You will also follow the New You Boot Camp diet plan devised by the New You Boot Camp Nutrition Squad to help enhance the benefits of the spa. Personal one-to-ones with the nutrition squad and the trainers are given, in order to help you to maintain the results you achieve once you get back home.

Founded by self-confessed ex yo-yo dieters Sunny Moran and Jacqui Cleaver - who have both lost an impressive three stone on the plan - says it targets real women dealing with years of weight and food obsession.

‘New You Boot Camp was an incredible experience and so what I needed to kick me into shape. I loved it and gained such knowledge from the week.' Said Sandra Fozzia, who lost 8lbs on the luxury New You Boot Camp.
