Six months since we went to Movara: I have lost 31 pounds (size 16 down to 6-8) and my husband has lost 40 (waist 42 down to 36)! Could not have done it without you guys. We still incorporate the lessons we learned on a daily basis, especially not beating yourself up when you have a little more than you... More

I just came back from a one week long stay at Movara. It was a great jumpstart to my wellness journey. I was a little apprehensive about taking a hiking vacation because I never hiked before, but thank goodness there was a hike for all levels. The landscapes of the hikes they chose were amazing. The facilities are beautiful, and... More

This resort will not disappoint! By far the best gift you can give yourself. The resort, food, classes and hikes are fantastic. You meet the most amazing and diverse people at the resort, everyone shares a common goal and you will be amazed at the camaraderie you develop with fellow guests.

I just returned from a 2 week stay at Movara and it is singlehandedly one of the best things I have ever done for myself. A while back I had dubbed 2016 as my year to get my body back – that meant dropping 40 pounds and striving for a more active lifestyle. I rejoined WeightWatchers, got more focused on... More

I am a frequent visitor of Movara Fitness Resort. A few years ago I started traveling there for the weight loss (I lost 20lbs in one week once), but now I continue for pleasure and weight management.

While the setting in SW Utah is beautiful, the daily hikes breathtaking, the chief prepared food delicious (all for 1,200 calories a day), the fitness classes challenging for all fitness levels, what really makes Movara special is the staff. The staff here are supportive, positive, knowledgeable and truly care about you and your personal journey to better health, whatever that... More

First time at a fitness facility since the Marines in 1970. I love the staff, they are knowledgeable, task driven, safety conscious and though their humour was a little on the dry side (i didn't sign up for comedy), the staff kept you engaged. The food was excellent, proportion was a little scary (thought it wouldn't be enough) it worked... More
