I came to Movara to get more fit and I left a balanced person, physiologically, spiritually, psychologically. My heart was light, my thoughts clear and focused. My spirit restored. These folks should be a model for any other service industry in excellence. The location is amazing, the expertise of the staff superb, the itinerary wonderful. The food is amazing. Everyone...

If anyone would like to improve their quality of life, they need to stay at Movara. The health and fitness regime will make a person healthier, stronger, more educated, and happier. The trainers and staff work incredibly hard to insure the best possible outcome or results for guests. The facility is world class, as well.

Fitness Ridge is a wonderful, life changing place. The trainers are encouraging, hard- core, kind, and helpful. The Registered Dietitian is world class. The Life Coach is practical , hilarious , and "right on" with her education. The hiking guides take you on incredibly beautiful, and challenging hikes mainly in Snow Canyon State Park. The support staff are gracious, helpful... More

From the morning hikes thru Snow Canyon State Park that were challenging but amazing, great healthy food (all completely made onsite), working out with great trainers, good education and speakers, and topping the evenings off with the...

My experience at Fitness Ridge was life-changing. The exercise facilities and equipment are well taken care of and clean. This resort is clean and relaxing. The staff are like no other--just exceptional people who provide a positive amount of energy and support to help each participant on his or her journey--whatever it might be. Many new friends are made while... More

When you plan your fitness retreat there are several things you would expect, I have been to Fitness Ridge both as the biggest Loser and recently as just FR. I found most things as far as the facility the same, except they have literally let all of their key management go. These key staff members are why my group continually... More

It is regrettable that you did not have the experience you were looking for. You are correct in that the facility is the same and in the same location as it has always been. We have made some changes to the staff, though we feel we have all the key management still working for us and providing great customer service.... More

I have just returned from my 2nd stay at Fitness Ridge. Not because it didn't work the first time, but because it is THAT GOOD and I wanted to come back and re-experience the feelings it left me with, and I was in need of a mind, body & soul "reset." I have tons of pictures to share, and hopefully... More

I had a great week with great hiking, exercise classes and very interesting and worthwhile classes. Staff and clients alike were super. You can feel very comfortable going on your own or with a friend. It is a great investment in your health, and you feel motivated and wonderful when you get home!
