I’VE not felt this proud of my body since I ran a half-marathon three years ago. No, I didn’t run the London Marathon at the weekend.

For the past four days, I have been putting my body through its paces at an amazing fitness centre in Mallorca named Body Camp. I’m a big fan of keeping fit, eating well and learning new things about my body.

We were treated to delicious plant-based food not too far from what I’d normally eat and healthy sugar-free treats. I have always been conscious of what I eat but was so grateful to learn new recipes.

I was one of 17 in our group, who didn’t know what to expect. Who would have guessed exercising to Eighties music, circuit-training to power ballads and doing burpees to Nineties rave tracks could be such fun? It was as silly as it sounds.

I have written many times about the importance of exercise. But I can’t stress enough how good movement is for body and mind.

I arrived at the camp with some niggly pains – a reminder cancer still resides in my bones. But practising yoga, jumping into a very cold pool and swimming in the sea off a dreamy turquoise cove made the exercise more than bearable. In fact, I had more energy than ever.

There are not many gyms or classes where you can truly lose your mind to a song by System Of A Down. Yet if fitness places adopted a less serious vibe, we would all probably enjoy exercising more.

But you know what? There is no reason why we can’t put on a powerful tune and just work out in our own home or garden.

If that weekend taught me anything, it was this: Letting loose, appreciating your body, laughing during tough exercises and dancing when it all feels a bit much is something we can ALL do, whatever our abilities and ailments and wherever we are . . .  although a sunny location definitely helps.
