Beautiful. This place is simply beautiful. This place has cultivated an environment where egos don’t exist, community spirit soars, and everyone learns to value themselves a little more. My four weeks here have meant so much to me. It’s hard to explain, but I feel more alive and happy than I have in a long time. Truly a special place.

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

My wife and i just returned from a great week at Fitness Ridge. We were amazed at how much we could accomplish together. 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!

I have been to Fitness Ridge several times and it gets better and better every time I go back. The staff is the most amazing, kind, generous group of people I have ever met. I go there once a year and from the moment I arrive to the time I leave, I am treated like an old friend coming for... More

Fitness Ridge was a very cool and supportive environment. They provided lots of exercise, hiking, and mental lectures along with exceptional food. The people staying there were committed to change their lives and habits. My stay was one week and this trip (my 3rd) was different than most. Most people were staying for two - 12 weeks. So, lots of... More
