I’m booked!  In about 5 months I’ll be embarking on a whole new adventure – a fitness resort.  Most people will be far from jealous, and you couldn’t pay them to go, but I’m excited for many reasons:

The Hiking

I’ve hiked in Utah before, and I loved it.  The scenery of cactus and red rock is beautiful.  My resort vacation includes a 2-3 hour hike every morning after breakfast.

The Food

My 2 week stay includes a total detox from sugar, processed foods and caffeine.  We’ll be served 3 meals, 1 snack and 1 dessert every day, and the calories will be 1200 – 1500.  We can have all the additional fruits and vegetables we want. Reviews of the food are very promising.

The Workouts

It’ll be gruelling, and I plan to sweat.  A lot!  But I’m looking so forward to the endorphins  🙂  Workouts will be varied – some cardio, strength, and stretching.  There will also be planned games like volleyball and badminton.  There’s a swimming pool on site as well.

The only negative is that I want to go NOW, but I have to wait.  This place has a comparatively reasonable price, but it still isn’t cheap.  My deposit is paid, but I’ve decided to wait until January 2016 to actually go.  It’ll be when I most need to escape the Canadian winter.  Utah will be cool (average around 16c in the day), but that’s perfect for me!  It’ll also be the new year, a time when I get into resolution mode, so this kick-start will be just what I need.

So what is this magical place?  It’s called Movara Fitness Resort.  All the pictures above, and the video below were taken at the resort.  I’ve done my homework – this place is exactly what I need – I can’t wait!

Movara is just outside St. George Utah, a 2-hour drive from Vegas.  Added bonus – my airmiles will cover the flight and the car rental.  Have I mentioned I’m excited?
