Movara Fitness Resort Review

Movara called and we said yes!

Our winter workouts (or lack thereof) had us itching to bust out of our routine so we headed to Southern Utah to bust a move. Here’s our Movara Fitness Resort review (You might also recognize it as the Biggest Loser Fitness Resort). We survived to tell the tale!

Week Long Program

Here’s a peek at a standard day at Movara. That’s right. One day. Stretches, hiking, fitness classes, educational series, swimming, oh, and you eat too. 1200 calories a day. We were FREAKING OUT. But guess what? It actually felt like a lot of food. We learned a lot about what our bodies can do, how we prepare our food, and how to deal with the occasional bought of hangriness and the urge to emotionally eat our feelings.

Not ready for the whole week? Short on time? You can sign up for their new Mfit program which is a one day program that is a great sampling of everything that Movara has to offer.

“Movara just recently launched a new one-day program called Mfit*****,*** which is offered on Saturdays. It essentially gives you a taste of everything that the one-week structured program has to offer. The day kicks off with a body assessment , followed by a delicious healthy breakfast, then a beautiful hike in the red rocks of Southern Utah.

Once you get back to the resort, you will enjoy a nutritious gourmet lunch, followed by additional fitness classes and alecture.Wrapup your day with some much-deserved pampering with a spa service of your choice. Mfit is for every one of every age and fitness level and a perfect way to spend the day with friends, a spouse or a family member and, for all the caregivers out there, for a change, have someone take care ofyou.Onthat note,so many peopleare understandably looking for a physical, mental and emotional reset,and that is exactly what Mfitoffers.Oneday. Every Saturday. Change your life with Mfit.”

The Food

1200 calories a day. You heard me right. 1-2-0-0 calories a day and you’ll be pushing yourself physically all day long. Crazy right? I thought so. Here’s the crazy part . . . I was eating all the food and doing all of the workouts and I WASN’T HUNGRY. The food was not only amazing, it was also perfectly prepared to see me through these big days. I learned a lot about quality calories (and I’d never really thought much about calories in the first place).

The Workouts

You can read more about their fitness program HERE. We did all the things! Hiking, Zumba, Stretching, Circuit, Swimming, (and of course hot tubbing and steam rooming and spa’ing . . . that’s a thing). It felt accessible for all fitness levels. You can Zumba your heart out, or side step it if you just can’t find the rhythm (ahem . . . that’s me). There’s no judgement, all kinds of fitness levels, and all kinds of friendly help and motivation (no drill sargeants).
