A Vacation or a Health Retreat?

It’s summer, we’re now in the thick of it with the 4th of July right around the corner.  Are you busy making summer vacation plans or perhaps you are on a vacation right now!  Did you know that one of the trendiest and healthiest vacations is actually a fitness vacation or health retreat?  Many folks are choosing wellness retreats during the summer and vacation time.  But why?  What’s the draw to attending a health retreat versus a cruise or relaxing beach vacation?

Top 4 Reasons a Health Retreat is Better than a “Vacation”

  1. Practicing good self-care will benefit you for YEARS to come.  What are your goals?  Weight loss, improved fitness?  Stress-Management, finding balance, becoming more aware and mindful?  Getting away to a health retreat where the focus is on these topics my be the ticket to improving your current health and overall improving your life.  Getting away from your day to day stressors for even one week can help you get back into the habit of proper self-care.
  2. Get out of a “FUNK“. Do you feel like a mouse in a cage some days, just spinning your wheels but getting no where fast?  Life is BUSY and STRESSFUL and while going and sitting on a beach drinking Pina coladas may sound nice, it will NOT give you any tools to take home when the vacation is over.   A health retreat is different!  Wellness and health retreats focus on helping you get un-stuck.  You will be tested with new physical challenges, you will be detoxifying your body- all the while-gaining a new perspective on your health in the process.   Soon the “FUNK” will disappear and with clarity and direction, you go home feeling rejuvenated and recharged after your fitness vacation.
  3. No planning, no Worries.  On a regular vacation you have to plan, plan, plan.  Unless you have a personal assistant doing everything for you, you will be the one creating the schedule, planning where to eat, and what to do.  At a health retreat, like Unite Fitness Retreat, you show up with your workout gear on, we have your schedule ready for you.  Of course, it’s not easy, you do have to put in the effort, but you don’t need to stress about anything.  Health retreats allow you time to trust the professionals to help you grow and change, and give you a break from being the “planner”.
  4. Finally, SEE SOME RESULTS.  Wouldn’t it be nice to go away on a “Vacation” and come back stronger and thinner and recharged at the same time?  A health retreat will have customized workouts with results-oriented fitness classes.  Instead of sitting on the beach, get moving!  Your body (and mind) will thank you.

When searching for the best health retreat for your vacation time, choose one that is personalized and structured with a focus on changing habits and your mindset so you get the most out of your experience.  Unite Fitness Retreat located at the base of the Wasatch Mountains in Salt Lake City is a wonderful life-changing choice.
