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:
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.
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.
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.
Each evening there will available lectures and cooking lessons.
And Then, at the End of the Day….
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?
