New Year-New You

Here at the Utah Fitness Retreat, we are gearing up for the year 2010. As we ring in the NEW YEAR, we are introducing our NEW YEAR, NEW YOU make-over!
Picture this: You've come to the retreat, lost an incredible amount of weight, let's say 50 pounds and now you are ready to go home. Why not go home with a complete make-over to go with your new figure? We'll arrange for you to have your hair and make-up done for the day you depart, so you can step off the plane looking like a million bucks! Hopefully you've packed an outfit several sizes smaller, you're going to need it. It's time to celebrate you and all of that hard work you've put in. You deserve a day of beauty, pampering, and of change!

This coming year, make a resolution that will stick. One that will be life-changing, one that will make you feel better, look better, and bring you more happiness. Our happiness and well-being are a direct reflection of our health. Are you ready for the change that changes everything?

An Apple a Day...

Why is it important to eat fiber rich foods if you are trying to loose weight?

Eating fiber rich foods helps you to feel full longer, so you are less likely to overeat!
Fiber is an indigestible part of all plant foods. It is found in fruits, vegetables, grains and beans.

What happens when you constantly overeat?
You start feeling:
discomfort stomach aches
gases in the digestive tract
weight gain: which lead to a whole host of other problems.

In order to solve a problem, you should first find the reason for it. In this particular case it’s the lack of fiber-rich foods and – the higher intake of foods that contain no fiber (like meat or any other animal products). The average amount of recommended fiber intake is about 25-30 grams per day. Unfortunately most people regular diets include less than 10 grams daily.

You should start consuming more of these fiber-rich foods like:
all bran cereal
whole wheat bread
red cabbage
baked potato with skin
and much more...

Eat more beans, grains, fruits and vegetables to feel better, feel full longer, and have more energy!

There are two types of fiber – soluble and insoluble. If you start eating more food rich in both types of fiber, you’ll be amazed of its beneficial effects over your digestive system, your body, your health, energy, and overall life.
You feel fuller longer – that’s the effect that helps you eat less food, which is rich in fiber, and your digestive tract uses more energy to digest it. This way your body burns additional calories and you can lose weight. Of course it takes some time and work to reach your desired weight, but you won’t be starving yourself, and yet you’ll be losing weight , doesn't that sound fabulous?

What does eating fiber have to do with the Utah Fitness Retreat?

It's just one of the many things you'll learn about in your nutritional classes and discussions with our registered dietician. We'll show you many new ways of thinking about foods, how to start eating better, how to make healthy taste great, and much, much more. During your stay, you will be eating many fiber rich foods. Our chef will prepare these nutritious meals for you and you will see and feel the difference in your energy, body, and mind.

Pilates-My New Best Friend

What is Pilates? An innovative system of mind-body exercise evolved from the principles of Joseph Pilates. And Just one of the many challenging and fun workouts you will participate in at the UTAH FITNESS RETREAT.

Pilates dramatically transforms the way your body looks, feels and performs. It teaches good posture, and graceful movement. It builds strength without excess bulk, creating a sleek, toned body with slender thighs and a flat abdomen. I've been sore for three days and I take that as a good sign. Not to mention, I already feel more toned, my flexibility has improved, and my back discomfort has been alleviated....Just after two weeks of doing pilates!

Pilates is a safe, sensible exercise system using a floor mat or equipment, that will help you look and feel your very best. No matter what your age or fitness level, it will work for you. After participating in a pilates class, my mind feels aligned with my body, I feel refreshed, and stronger.

Here at the UTAH FITNESS RETEAT, be prepared to move your body to create the shape you want. Our certified instructors will help you achieve your goals and I guarantee this is one class you'll want make a consistent part of your workout plan once you leave.

In Health and Happiness!

Welcome to the NEW blog for the Utah Fitness Retreat

What's in a name? As for us at Real Life Fitness and Health, it's everything. We are essentially hoping to help you find fitness and health in your every day, REAL life. We are introducing ourselves to you via the blog world to keep you updated on who we are , what we are doing, and how we are continuing to change people's lives for the better.

So....What is the Utah Fitness Retreat all about? We are in a nutshell, a weight loss facility that focuses and deals with the entire person. While you are with us, you will be motivated to work out between 6 and 7 hours each day with certified personal trainers. You will be prepared healthy, delicious meals by our fabulous chef, Julie Sheehan. You will also be educated on all aspects of health and wellness, you will also dive into the psychological aspect of food issues.

If you prefer to be in a small group of like-minded individuals, the Utah Fitness Retreat is the place for you. You will never have more than 20 peers at any one time, you will never get lost in the crowd, nor shuffled back to your hotel at the end of the day. I think because of our small group and family style nature, our results far exceed other retreats out there. Wether you need to lose 10 pounds or 110 pounds, you are treated equally, although you will have your very own personalized workout plan and attainable goals each week.

The entire time you are with us, we are preparing you for when you leave. We want you to succeed and believe that you will. Our "After Care" program will keep you on track once you do leave and continue your journey of health out there in the REAL world.

Believe that change is possible, that is what LIFE is all about.
