I figured it was time for me to get on here and write a review. I was at fitness ridge in Nov 2012 for 2 weeks. What an amazing experience.
I should start off by saying that I arrived with an injured knee. The trainers were great at offering alternative exercises to accommodate my injury. The only thing I would suggest to future guests is to let the trainers know of any injuries or issues you have before the class starts so they can keep an eye on you and offer solutions.
Hiking- I pushed myself really hard the first hike so based on my performance, I was put in a group that was a bit too challenging for me. I knew I couldn't keep up with that group every day on top of all of the other exercise classes so I spoke to the hiking manager and she put me down a group where I was more comfortable. The hikes were amazing, the guides were really great and they give you the right amount of encouragement so you accomplish more than you think you can but not too much that you can't handle it.
Food- incredible...I was never hungry and enjoyed everything that was served. If there is something on the menu you don't like, they have alternatives available....just ask.
Rooms- clean and comfortable...this is coming from a girl who only stays at 5 star hotels and I had nothing to complain about.
Staff- the cleaners, hiking guides, trainers, front counter staff, massage therapists and kitchen staff were incredible. They were all kind and supportive and made my stay really memorable. No one was pushy or made me do anything I wasn't comfortable with.
The biggest thing I can say is ASK FOR HELP if you need it. It is true that most activities are done in groups so they have to watch everyone and can't read your mind I'd something is wrong.
I have a two week credit and will be returning in november...I can't wait to go back. One of the best decisions I have made for myself.
