Want to win at losing?

At Ragdale Hall, we’re stripping weight loss back to the basics and giving you the knowledge and confidence to adopt an exercise regime and healthy eating plan that suits you. Sessions include ME Time which shows you how to maximise hormonal responses, Cellulite Circuit, WOW; how using weights can change your shape quicker and Fat Fighter which will help build self-confidence PLUS seminars Slim Hopes & Fat Chances and Why Weight.

This ground-breaking event is led by Ragdale’s own award winning fitness expert and author, Dean Hodgkin. Dean’s approach to weight loss is simple; increase activity levels and eat healthier. We can’t promise you’ll be a size smaller when you leave the Hall, as we all know that fast weight loss in a short time is unhealthy and unsustainable; however we will ensure, when you leave, you’ll have taken the first steps on the path of your healthy new life!

You’ve watched the series, now try the moves……and shape up at the same time!

Remember, you don’t have to be a dancer, it’s all about simply having a go at something new and putting the fun back into fitness. Dancing your way to a new, slimmer you will not only put a little sweat on your brow but will also certainly put a big smile on your face.

“The dance classes were wonderful. The teachers went at a really good pace. Many of the routines included a lot of new moves but you felt as though you could do them all by the end of the session – and being able to perform the final piece was a great feeling!”

“ABSOLUTELY A-MA-ZING (in a Craig Revel Horwood kind of voice)!”
