Well..I was sitting in front of my computer frustrated about the winter weight I had gained and the sluggish, tired feeling that was becoming an everyday feeling. I began googling spas, weight loss etc. and came upon Mountain Trek. It looked perfect. A fitness place/spa that was beautiful yet rigorous. After speaking personally with the booking people (who were extremely informative and courteous) I made a reservation.
I arrived a month later and spent a fabulous week in a beautiful place with an incredible staff. Lost weight, gained fitness, learned and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I wish i could do it several times a year and I may. It is hard work but you are walked through it all by amazing guides who are there but never overly hovering. Great facility and spectacular food. One never feels deprived. I am still using the knowledge I acquired at Mtn. Trek and have even lost another 10 lb.. Great place I highly recommend.
