This post is something a little different than what we have done in the past,
but I am incredibly excited about it.
In just one week, I will be heading down to St. George, UT, to spend one week at Fitness Ridge. This amazing resort is formerly a Biggest Loser ranch – the exact same setting where the contestants on the show go for weeks on end and get everything from multiple daily workouts to healthy meals prepared for them. My absolute favorite part of this whole thing . . . you can come with me!
I didn’t realize that something like this existed. I knew that contestants on the Biggest Loser TV show had access to something like this, but I didn’t even think about that it would be available to the public. They have been open for many years and have helped many people on their health and fitness journeys.
is a place you really have to experience to wrap your head around the miracles they work there. According to their website:
“At our all inclusive resort, Fitness Ridge, we offer a unique and life changing weight loss experience and so much more. We not only have all the tools in place to set you on a course for a healthier, happier, ?rest of your life?, these tools come complete with world class accommodations, staff, cuisine and views that are as memorable as the results you will achieve. While our certified trainers inspire you to push yourself further than you could have imagined, our life coaches, social workers, and dietitians will help you gain the tools needed to make changes that last a lifetime, not just a week or a month.”
This place is incredible. There are more workouts
than you can even fit into a day including hikes every morning, 2-3 workouts daily in one of their 3 state-of-the-art gyms (everything from weights and conditioning to kickboxing and Yoga), pool workouts, and even cycling through the beautiful red rock canyons of southern Utah. All classes and training sessions are taught by professional, certified trainers and even some Biggest Loser contestants from past seasons! Trust me, they’ve got your workouts covered.
But that’s not all. Your meals are all taken care o
f, prepared by a world-class team of chefs, that are too amazing to be as good for you as they are (I had the chance to tour the facility and tried their chicken lasagna- it was amazing and only had 360 calories/serving!). I looked over some of the daily menu plans while I was there – everything sounded phenomenal with daily averages in the 1200-1500 calorie range. Trust me, they’ve got your menu plan covered.
But wait! There’s more!! (Ha ha- totally feels like an infomercial!!). The final, and in my opinion very most important, thing that they offer at Fitness Ridge
are classes. You get everything from diet and nutrition to calorie expenditure and weight loss
. They don’t just run you through workouts and feed you a healthy diet while you’re there; they actually provide you with education, keys, and knowledge that you will take home with you after your experience. This component is VITAL in any weight plan – it’s one thing to go through the motions; it’s quite another to know WHY it’s effective.
Education – covered.
I’ve worked out a deal with Fitness Ridge
where they’re prepared to offer you a discount on your week there!!
You get all the meals, workouts, and accommodations for just $2295 (which works out to be $327/day).
Bring a friend and you only pay $1595 each ($227/day).
Bring 3 friends and the four of you pay ONLY $995 each ($142/day… seriously – they have to be losing money on this one!!)
I challenge you to find any hotel, restaurants, and entertainment on any vacation for that cheap!! It’s hard to put a price tag on changing your life forever, but if you have to then that’s an INCREDIBLE deal!!!
I know that it’s going to be a killer week and I am little nervous to face some of those issues that have always bothered me, but for the most part I am excited to learn more about health and fitness and how to incorporate it into my family’s lives.
I would LOVE to have you join me for the week of August 3-10, but even if you can’t come, be sure to follow along on Instagram
to see all the behind-the-scenes looks at my time spent at the resort. I may be a very sweaty mess!
Also . . . stay tuned! After my stay at Fitness Ridge, I will be giving away a week’s stay for one of our readers!
It will be an amazing prize for one of you worth over $2300!
Wish me luck . . . 😉
