Ted WinkworthCertified Therapist & Life-Coach
Ted has a passion for helping people live healthy and meaningful lives. It’s why he pursued his Master’s Degree in Mental Health Counseling from Syracuse University 15 years ago. Through his counselor training, he noticed how easily his clients became stuck on their symptoms and diagnoses. That’s when he became certified in coaching which helps people connect with their strength and motivation instead of ruminating on the things they see as broken. From this place, Ted’s clients build confidence and motivation – the two not- so-secret ingredients of real and lasting change. He loves helping his clients go deep emotionally and make changes that align with their most authentic selves. When Ted isn’t coaching or working with his therapy clients, he enjoys backcountry snowboarding, mountain biking, paragliding, and finding any excuse to go camping in the desert.
Cori’s first encounter with coaching changed her life. She was working as a wilderness adventure therapy guide with teenagers who were mandated to her program. She wanted so badly to help these young humans live more meaningful lives but felt stuck in a situation where she wanted change more than them. That’s when she called a coach. She noticed how quickly her formerly stuck life found direction and momentum. Cori immediately enrolled in a coaching certification program and since then has accumulated 500 plus hours that qualify her as a Professional Certified Coach. She loves challenging people to overcome fears and take risks almost as much as she loves seeing her clients reach goals that they never thought possible. Her experience, skills, and knowledge combined with clients strong desires to make an impact in their life are what allows for positive changes to unfold. When she isn’t coaching, she enjoys being outside and spending time with her dog.

My journey and how I found and ended up at Unite Fitness Retreat is short and sweet. With the Covid shutdown and aging... process (I am 59), I found myself slowly but surely gaining momentum on the weight gain train. I was losing muscle and gaining fat so the pounds were not extreme but the inches were out of control. Nothing I tried on my own worked and knew that if I did not get my metabolism fixed and fired back up fast I was going to be trying to lose 100 lbs. vs. 20lbs.I found United Fitness Retreat and it immediately sounded like a program that could help me get back on track. I may have looked at one or two other options, but I kept coming back to Unite Fitness due to the daily schedule: structured workouts, hiking (definitely the hiking sold me) and yoga/mobility classes.The program is for all ages, sizes, abilities and goals. Regardless of where you are in your journey to get healthy or stay healthy, I highly recommend Unite Fitness Retreat. By following their program, you cannot go wrong. I was there for 2 full weeks and would have definitely stayed a 3rd week had it been feasible.The staff of trainers are professional, helpful and kind. They truly understand that each participant has their own individual goals and they help inspire clients to reach them. This is one of the best programs out there for anyone looking to change their lifestyle and mindset to be healthier, no need to look any further.Unite Fitness Retreat, Thank you for helping me get back on track.read more
After about 10 years of a lazy and bad diet lifestyle, a trip to Unite was just what I needed. I thought Salt Lake... city was a very nice place and I really enjoyed it, and that is coming from a guy who lives in Hawaii. The hotel was awesome and in a great location. I cannot say that I did much outside of the program, because that was my focus. The staff was great and I enjoyed the healthy meals, something that never happened in my past. I highly recommend Unite to anyone looking for a lifestyle change. I started with the three week program and after the first week I knew I had to extend an additional week. I thought four weeks was perfect. The only thing I recommend is to try and come with nothing on your plate. I noticed several people in the program were often sidetracked with family phone calls, work phone calls or issues which seem to detract from their focus on the program. Hopefully I will not need to return, however I will probably consider going back for a week just because I enjoyed the staff, the regiment, the lodging, and the food. Don’t think… Just Do It!read more
Unite Fitness was an experience I am 100% grateful for. Cue the dramatics….but it was life changing! On a day to day... basis, you get to focus on YOU. It gets you moving, has you eating right and gives you tools for the real world. The staff was very knowledgeable and personable! They push you, make sure your safety is #1 and want to see you succeed. The food was amazing, the facilities were clean and the location provided a beautiful backdrop for the daily hikes. The 4 weeks I took to focus on my health and wellness was absolutely worth it!read more
Unite Fitness Retreat changed my life! Everything said (ads & testimonials) is true and more. My accommodations,... personalized training, food, and the HIKES! First class and a tremendous value all the way. My results (39 pounds lost in 5 weeks) are well beyond the numbers based on how I feel. I made great friends and can’t wait to go back and take my wife. If one is looking for a fitness/body/lifestyle restart or reset, then this is the place to get it done.read more
Unite was an excellent choice for me. While I knew most of what they were saying to get healthy, I still needed that... push to keep on target.The staff was very professional and was always there with an encouraging word.The program had many different activities so we were never bored.Would highly recommend this fitness retreat.read more
My experience with Unite exceeded my expectations. I lost body fat and gained both muscle and confidence. The breadth... of workouts I did kept my mind engaged and challenged my body. I did things I never had before, like boxing, a medicine ball workout and leg pushups. The best part was the support I felt from both the trainers and the other participants. I learned so much from their nutritionist Brooke as well as their chefs, Marjorie, Yvonne and Kaori. I've been able to take the recipes, pantry overhaul and workouts back home with me so I'm continuing my quest to live a healthier and more joyful life. The morning staff work hard to make every exercise accessible to each client. Their afternoon staff who lead the hikes, mobility/yoga and mindfulness are absolutely lovely people who care deeply about each participant. Thank you to my Unite Family!read more

I met so many amazing people and for sure I will be back. I only wished I could of stayed longer but I left very well equipped to start transitioning to a healthy lifestyle.read more
After researching many places, I settled on Unite & it was the best decision I've ever made. They really do care for... each & every person. I was there for a month, my husband joined me in the program for the last 2 weeks & even he enjoyed it. My husband is 65 & has a bad hip & bad knees but that didn't stop him because the trainers would help him modify the exercises that he needed so he'd get the same desired results. I went there after I gained 50 ibs & had lower back pain from sitting all day binge watching Netflix & eating for a year or 2. But by the end of my first week all my back pain was gone & I've never felt stronger In my life. I would diffenitly recommend Unite Fitness to anyone that needs a change in their life. You won't regret it.read more
Fantastic experience. I originally only signed up for one week - I would highly recommend doing a least 2 weeks to... really see the impact of all your hard work. Turning 50 hit my body hard. I needed to lose some weight and build up my strength. I got both out of this retreat. We all work and eat together, but everyone is supported in going at their own pace. The first 3 days were rough, but after day 3 I would wake up feeling better than I have felt in a very long time. Supportive trainers, nutritionist and chefs. I learned so much! I would highly recommend this for anyone looking to feel better.read more

Trainers are available and willing to help with any questions, thoughts or ideas. There work out are fantastic, along with the nutrition and cooking classes.

I've had my weekly calls with the a training after coming home, along with a 30 day challenge and recipes to follow along with . I HIGHLY recommend Unite Fitness Retreat. The friends you meet and stay in contact with is just the bonus!read more
After researching many places to make my lifestyle change, I hopped on a plane, left the East Coast and landed in Utah,... at Unite Fitness Retreat. After battles and battles with weight issues and trying every FAD diet out there, Unite CHANGED my life, not just my waistline.(that was an added bonus).Or as one of the trainers told me, "I changed my life, with the help of them." (Laird your the best)The trainers at Unite, help with cardio, strength training, and nutrition, but for me, all of those things helped with my "mental" state of mind and also helped me to realize some of the reasons, that may have contributed to me seeking a retreat to begin with.I have always exercised and actually enjoy it, but, I also followed EVERY FAD DIET and NEVER did strength training!! Who would have thought, you could do hours and hours of cardio, but without strength training and you would never see results you wanted. ( I also learned and realized that from the amazing trainers).When I arrived at Unite, I knew I made the very best choice. The staff at Unite provided me with all the "tools" I needed to make, my new LIFESTYLE! Whether it is nutrition changes, weight changes, lifestyle changes, you are seeking, Unite can help you with your journey, because they WANT too! The staff is amazing and are there for YOU, not just the crisp bills you pay to be there, like some places!They will not tell you what to do or when to do it, what they WILL do is provide a schedule (a very busy, very detailed, great one), and help guide you, in the best way possible for you!! At Unite Fitness it is about YOU, and what you make of it, you just have some GREAT people helping you along the way!read more

I went for 4 weeks in the month of August and it was LIFE CHANGING! I loved the hikes that we went on as well as the boot camp workouts that we did. It is a great step towards changing your life forever.read more
I believe the main goal of most people who decide to invest in one of the Unite Fitness Retreat programs is to lose... weight, and that was not different with me. But why did I choose Unite among so many other options available out there? Because I couldn't find a better option where I could take care of both my body and mind. So I travelled all the way from California to Utah and I couldn't be happier with the choice I made. I was there for 3 weeks and when I came back home after following all the activities available in the program I was not only in a better shape than before, but I became a more confident person. The whole experience was really life changing for me. After I overcame some of my own fitness and mind obstacles I really feel like I can conquer the world. And for that I thank all the amazing instructors at Unite for being so talented, supporting and motivating. I would like to thank the amazing chefs that kindly prepared all of our delicious meals. I would like to thank Brooke for sharing her knowledge with us and so much precious information about food. And I would like to thank the other program's participants for being such an inspiration for me.read more
I attended Unite Health & Fitness for four weeks in Aug 2020. It was truly one of the best things I could have done... for myself and my health. I learned about food (good and not so good for me) exercise (a variety of different styles) awake-rest-sleep and that taking time for myself throughout a day is what we are supposed to do for our bodies, mind and spirit.This program is tough, challenging, strenuous (at times), exhausting, scary, REWARDING, GRADIFYING, PRIDFUL, CLARIFYING AND SO MUCH MORE.If your thinking about a fitness & health program, look into this one. I wasn't disappointed and recommend this program.read more
I spent three weeks at Unite and I lost weight and body fat. I developed a different relationship with food through... Unite's structured snacks and meals. I am no longer overwhelmed at the grocery store because I know what to buy and what to eat. In addition, working out and incorporating it into my schedule is easier since I left Unite due to everything that I learned. I recommend the camp if you are looking for a solid weight loss education and if you want to transform your life. The trainers are really good and your fitness level does not matter. You will never feel left out.read more
The steroids I received during (successful) cancer treatment came with a bad side effect: I steadily gained weight for... over three years. After trying several times to lose the excess 30 pounds, I had just about given up. Then I went to Unite. I went for one week, and while the difference in my weight was small after that week, the difference in my attitude was huge. I realized it wasn't going to be easy, but that I could do it. In short, it was life-changing. It taught me to be truly mindful about what I put into my body.. The teaching/lunch sessions by Brooke (the nutritionist) was so informative and encouraging, and her grocery store tour is a must, even for someone like me who doesn't cook. The other great thing I gained from my week at Unite was a willingness to try new things--something I've continued since coming home.The weight is coming off slowly, but it's coming off. I intend to go back for at least another week in the fall, COVID-19 permitting. Thanks to all.read more
I’m so happy Unite came up in my google search for a getaway fitness program. The program is complete and they truly... tailor to all ages and fitness levels. I had great results for the week I was there as I needed a reset and to learn a few things. I thought the food was great, the lunch and learns were informative, training sessions pushed my fitness to the next level, and the afternoon hikes and mobility sessions topped off each day. Highly recommend you make the investment in yourself. Look forward to going again and hope to bring along some friends my next visit.read more
Unite Fitness Retreat is absolutely amazing! The concept, the coaches, the facilities and the meals are zenith. The... coaches sincerely care about your success and are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. They encourage and motivate you while they understand and help you do only what you physically can do. Although you work out with others, it is truly an individual success plan. The entire staff will work with you and in my case, they accommodated everything that I needed! If you want to jump start a lifestyle change and lose weight, gain motivation and a healthy lifestyle all at the same time, Unite is the place. The entire package was important to me, but I really appreciated the living accommodations at the end of the day. They are top natch! Thank you ALL at Unite Fitness Retreat! You have changed my life. See you next year for a reboot :)read more

I spent two weeks here and it was great. I did lose weight, but mostly I got a lot of healthy new habits, and I... stopped drinking soft drinks and detoxed off of sugar. All costs are included in the up-front fees, including every meal. Stick to this healthy diet, don't cheat, enjoy the exercise classes and hiking, and you will feel fantastic! I really liked the trainers and the other attendees. Salt Lake City and the surrounding mountains are beautiful.read more
