If you’ve been searching for a fitness camp or weight loss retreat, you may have noticed Utah has A LOT of them.  Why is this so?  We’ve compiled our top five reasons Utah has the most fitness camps or weight loss retreats per capita in the country.

Top 5 Reasons To Attend a Fitness Camp in Utah

  1. Utah has AMAZING recreation!  From the huge glorious Wasatch Mountain Range in Salt Lake City to the national & state parks (Zion, Moab, Snow Canyon), there is a lot of fun to be had.
  2. The Climate!  We have all four seasons here in Utah, which makes attending a weight loss retreat in Utah fun at any time.  The fall is simply gorgeous with the changing leaves and perfect climate, winter is all about snow-shoeing and cross country skiing (and it’s not THAT cold), summer you’ll be so busy hiking, kayaking, white water rafting, biking, exploring, you’ll never want to come inside!…And spring!  Again, perfect weather, sunny days, flowers blooming, and awesome hikes.
  3. Utah is diverse.  There is so much to do in your free time, if your fitness camp allows a little downtime (hopefully, they do!)  Concerts, professional sports, art galleries, shopping, hip coffee shops, to name a few.
  4. It’s not terribly expensive here.  Some fitness camps near the ocean or in some metropolitan cities, will carry a big price tag because they have higher costs to run the camp.  Therefore, you must pay thousands more for attending a weight loss retreat in New York, San Diego, Chicago, or another large city.  Cities like, Salt Lake City, Saint George, and Park City are big enough to fill like you are not sequestered away from civilization, but small enough to learn your way around and feel safe.
  5. Train like an Olympian. In 2002, the world came to Utah for the Olympic Winter Games. That spirit lives on at Utah Olympic Park in Park City, where guests can bobsled, zipline or watch future Olympians in training.  An Olympic Museum tells the stories of the games that came to Utah.  Hey, if the Olympians like it here, we think you will too.

    Utah was voted the 3rd healthiest state in the nation according to Prevention Magazine!  Get healthy at a fitness or weight loss retreat in Utah, you won’t be disappointed.
