Kathryn Freeland's Story

Kathryn Freeland has over 20 years’ experience personal training top celebrities, royalty & private clients. She was one of London’s top personal trainers and ran Absolute Fitness for 15 years with 17 trainers.

Her credits include: Mail on Sunday 'World's Most Sought after Trainer' & The Times 'A-List Trainer'

She had the idea for a fitness & wellbeing retreat whilst stressed out & foregoing her healthy lifestyle a few months before her wedding that she was organising and simultaneously purchasing Stede Court.  She needed to get away, without the stress of airports, she wanted balance & a mixture of exercise not full on bootcamp nor 5am yoga and she wanted healthy but 'normal' food.  She needed tranquillity and a bespoke itinerary to rejuvenate her back to being her best self.

As a highly experienced PT, she launched the unique Stede Court Private Fitness Retreat 

offering day & residential fitness and wellbeing retreats & personal training where guests receive a 100% bespoke experience

                        Contact Kathryn & she will help you rebalance your lifestyle and you will leave feeling rejuvenated with the confidence to start your own bespoke healthy living plan
