The resort is all about fitness both in the way of very healthy and delicious food and an exercise program you can take home with you. You will lose weight and get educated about how to continue to lose and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I never knew I could feel so good. Todd M

$10,000 and 4 weeks to lose 22 lbs is hardly a bargain, but the lessons picked up at Movara were invaluable. Parting with the money was painful but not nearly as difficult as hiking and working out 8 hours a day. Be prepared for blisters! Learning that it is possible to eat 1500 calories a day, to quit caffeine and... More

The place definitely gets you moving and really helps you understand better eating...and how you can stay full on 1500 calories a day. Now some tips. The program really ends on the Saturday around noon - 2 pm. If I was told... More

My husband and I recently returned after our initial week 6 years ago. We realized we should have gone back sooner. We had a delightful week. We both worked really really hard and came home motivated to make some changes and keep up our progress. You will definitely get back all that you put into your time at Movara. There... More

This is not a "resort" in the traditional sense. This is a place to work very hard and change your life. If that sounds a bit dramatic, then you should choose a different spot to "vacation". What to expect? Everyone is super friendly and helpful. But you will only get out what you put in. I went to Biggest Loser... More

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
