This includes cutting edge lectures in nutrition, sleep and stress management techniques. It's an all inclusive, highly structured boot camp style program but with heart. Included in a 2 week program; 8 massages, transportation to and from the airport, all meals, private room with en-suite, 10 mountain hikes, morning yoga sessions, evening fitness classes, usage of spa & saunas and free access to the hot springs.

This was not a vacation for me. I had hit bottom, was out of shape, had poor eating habits and knew I needed inspiration and encouragement to change. I love the outdoors and have hiked for most of my life, so found this to be the perfect fit for me, in the perfect environment.

It is no wonder this location wins awards every year. It is beautiful and the program works! Passionate, gracious, knowledgeable staff, superb food, hikes that make your heart pound for their beauty and a wake up yoga class to stretch it all out. It is a program, and you are on

June 13, 2017 I lost more than10 lbs and 7 inches of girth with Mountain Trek! But, more important than what I lost is what I gained! Mountain Trek catapulted me from the rut I was in and landed me firmly far down the path to wellness and healthy living for the long term with

Mountain Trek at this point is charging an astronomical amount of money for what it actually offers. As a repeated guest I came here knowing not to expect a top spa facility. I overlooked the small beige rooms with the tiny bathrooms, or the fact that there isn’t a single

Great question, Jalapin. I think that anyone, regardless of how obese he or she is, would benefit from the exercise, healthy diet, and lifestyle guidance that Mountain Trek provides. They make sure that each guest's hikes are appropriate for his/her own level and ability, even if that means guiding a guest 1:1. It's a wonderfully supportive atmosphere. Even more importantly, the education that they provide is straightforward and is designed to be incorporated into your life after you leave, so the benefits of going to Mountain Trek are not just week-long. But I suggest that you call them directly, and ask them your question(s) - they can also tell you what their experience has been with "seriously obese" seniors.

There is no smoking allowed anywhere, as well as no alcohol nor caffeine. The classes/staff/daily activities are a great support for better heatlth and personal choices. It was literally life altering for me.

Yes! it's impressive how much time they spend making sure you are hiking in the best group for you---and all the guides have walkie-talkies to allow people to switch groups at some point during the day if you are feeling particularly strong or tired and need to change groups. There are many steep and challenging hikes, especially if you want them!

"Rooms on the lower floor are smaller, but have private outdoor patios. All rooms have renovated, lovely bathrooms, are clean and comfy."
"You won't be doing much in your room except sleeping"
"Only negative is the rooms and especially the bathrooms are fairly small for two people. But you don't spend much time in your room."
"The rooms are all private and because of the secluded location it's completely silent"
"It really doesn't matter which room you have, as you spend very little time there except to shower and sleep."
