Pampering day at Champneys
Friday 11th October 2019
Although it was a wet, cold & drab day it didn’t stop us having a fabulous time at Champneys flagship spa in Tring; 22 of us set of by coach to enjoy a day off pampering & exercise!
We enjoyed a welcome breakfast (all healthy & beautifully displayed) before getting our individual schedule of treatments. Everyone received a pair of Champneys flipflop’s (could be kept) as well as use of a very snug dressing gown (sadly had to be returned)! before heading off to the changing rooms to safely store personal items in lockers.
The exercise timetable was quite varied & covered all abilities & likes, if you didn’t fancy anything you could relax in sauna, jacuzzi or even the Thalassotherapy pool. Quite a few of the ladies decided to try the Aquamit class 30 minutes of aerobics in water using either mits or weights for resistance; this caused much laughter & was a good way to start the morning! Some ladies tried a very different class to what they are used to – moving very much out of their comfort zone.
We all met for lunch @ 1pm where a table had been reserved for us all to sit together, again plenty of choice, all very healthy & they even had a form of eat well plate so you could keep yourself in check!
In the afternoon most ladies had treatments; a make-up class had been organised for those who wished to attend within our day package – this was very informative & as the ‘model’ felt very pampered & if I do say so myself looked extremely glam – which was very handy as I was going out that evening!
We left around 6pm, with everyone saying they would like to go back next year (2020) – I will see what I can arrange perhaps during the summer months so we can enjoy sitting outside & use the outdoor pools available to guests.
If you would be interested in joining me next year please let me know.
