I did an 8-day programme with Fresh Start at The Pavana Resort in Chiangmai in January. Totally love the programme, trainers and all the staff at The Pavana Resort!! My two super fit and professional trainers Methee and Pong were really fun and encouraging. I had lots of fun participating 6 to 7 hours of varied fitness activities with some new found friends from different parts of the world. I could not imagine healthy food can be delicious until I had the most heavenly tom yam koong and fresh organic salads. I lost 3kg, and I am leaner and fitter now. I would highly recommend anyone who is looking to lose weight or keep fit or simply enjoy activities based holiday to join Fresh Start!

This has by far been one of my best trips. I made a lot of amazing friends and the Bootcamp program itself works well with the trainers. The main trainer Jo was very professional and created an amazing atmosphere for the group.
My relationship with food and gym has completely changed and one month on I have kept all the positive habits I picked up on my trip.
I would recommend Fresh Start to anyone who needs a decent break from the rate race or needs the boost to get in shape and pick up great habits for a healthy lifestyle.

Boot camp is great. This is my second time and it really works. Weight loss is a given if you put in with the strict diet. The increase in fitness is the huge surprise with the difference in 7 days amazing. The variety of activities is fantastic and you get to see a good bit of the countryside on the walks and bike ride. The resort itself is boring so I would not bring someone along not doing the bootcamp who is picturing a typical thai resort with the huge pool and swim up bar. For bootcampers though it is perfect as you are too tired much of the time to do much else.

We really appreciate your review of your recent fitness and weight loss retreat with us. Thanks for coming a second time and it's great to hear you got great results again. You are right there isn't a swim up bar at the resort, as it is primarily a health resort. However, if you looking for an unspoilt homely place with fantastic nature and great nearby walks then the resort is perfect. There are 2 swimming pools, sauna, steam room, massages, restaurant with healthy food and breath taking views. We are also very close to local tourist attractions and Weena can arrange taxi's for our guests to explore the local area. We hope to see you again a third time! We wish you continued success with your health goals! healthy wishes Louise

Achieved 8.6 kilos weight loss in the 7 days I was on the Bootcamp (down from 121.8kg to 113,2kg). The workouts were hard but the instructors were extremely supportive and the Massages / Saunas at the end of the day took the edge off the inevitable aches and pains.

I enjoyed my time with Richard and trainers; Sompong and Ricky as well as part time instructors Suzi (Pilates) and Neil (yoga). It was definitely the kick start I was looking for and I feel re-charged, fitter and healthier ready to continue to lose weight under the guidance of the post trip booklets supplied after my stay.

I will be going back in December with friends for round two - looking to smash my times on the cross fit test and Temple run.

Fresh Start was an amazing experience! I wanted to enjoy Chiang Mai but also keep up my fitness. It was better than I expected. I arrived with a decent fitness level but bootcamp leader Jez went above and beyond in not just challenging me but supporting and motivating me to do more. I left fitter than I arrived! But I saw amazing results with everyone in the group regardless of their fitness level. Hiking, trail running, cycling, circuits, swimming/water polo, muay thai,..every experience was memorable and great with Jez and Methee! Plus I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the world! I traveled solo and it was so much fun! I wish I could've stayed longer! I will definitely be back.

Just finished a thoroughly rewarding week at Fresh Start Holiday Bootcamp. My motivation to do the camp was to get fit and lose some weight over the festive period.

The programme is designed so that during the week you complete a wide range of activities that hit all parts of your body. Our two instructors were excellent, supportive and were able to tailor different activities to our individual needs.

The bootcamp uses the wonderful facilities of The Pavana Resort. It is a really tranquil, calming venue that provided a daily spa treatment in with the programme - a perfect remedy after a gruelling day of exercise. You follow a strict diet but the food is decent and you can always get something off the regular restaurant menu if you desire.

I wholeheartedly recommend this bootcamp if you are looking to improve your fitness and lose a bit of weight along the way.

I spent 10 days of challenging fitness in the tranquility of northern Thailand. No two days were alike, which I enjoyed - circuits, aqua-fit, walks, HIIT, tennis, pilates, biking, muay thai, yoga, field exercises, weights, and the list goes on. All of which were instructed by world-class fitness trainers, Jez and Anton, and their second-in-commands, Methee and Pong. I left with less fat and more muscle and plan to incorporate the diet and exercise routines into my ongoing life. And I must not forget to mention the new friendships made while there. Thanks for the fresh start!

Attended the bootcamp for the second time and highly recommend of anyone that wants to improve their fitness and/or lose weight. This is a well-structured approach with a variety of exercises (cross training, circuits, runs, power walks, thai boxing, yoga, cycling and more). Results were great, even I only stayed one. Would definitely recommend two weeks. Instructors were great too.

The last week of Oct. I attended the Fresh Start fitness bootcamp for the second time. I can honestly say, that I enjoyed it the first time, but the second time was even better! Jez the trainer and his assistant Jo were absolutely wonderful. Jez is incredibly knowledgeable about fitness, he is quite passionate about what he does and motivating people. Due do some physical limitations caused by a hip replacement I can not do all of the exercises. Jez was terrific at finding alternatives to the traditional moves.

I would highly recommend the Fresh Start!

Fresh Start was the best experience I could ever have hoped for!

The trainers were amazing, with an abundance of knowledge and experience! They were able to cater for all of the different fitness levels and push you to your best.

I started off with my fitness levels super low, i was always at the back falling behind (the assistants were there to help push me forward and not give up!) by the end I was forward at the front as my fitness had improved each day that went past!

The program itself is amazing, whilst getting fit you also get to see the real Thailand and learn about the culture be it via temples and day trips or the Muay Thai sessions!

Food at the Pavana was great and the restaurant staff were friendly and helpful and luckily, able to cater for my “no spicy” palette.

Tip: bring lots of training gear, one set per day is nowhere near enough, as you will be working up a sweat throughout, you’ll need at least two changes per day! Lol

Physical results: lost 8KGS, over 11cms off of my waist, 5cms off leg, 3cm off arm.

Fitness results: went from 15mins and only able to walk on my first week, to 9mins on my final week and able to run!!

My stay at fresh start was the beginning of a year round the world trip, now every single piece of clothing that I packed for the year, are too big and no longer fits lol except my socks!

It’s hard going but the team at fresh start get you there. If you’re thinking of doing this, then stop thinking and just book it. I promise you, you will not be disappointed!! Even post fresh start, the team are there to offer support and advise, all I need to do is contact them when I have a question and they are more than happy to help with advice!

I will without a doubt be back at fresh start, and have already recommended it to all of my friends. Forever indebted to the team at fresh start for helping me regain my fitness levels after being out of action for just short of a year. They helped me get the real me back again!
