Travelocity does not have a separate category for fitness retreats, so Mountain Trek’s location in British Columbia implies a comparison with other “resorts” along Lake Kootenay. Mt Trek’s facilities are beautiful. The resort enjoys an incomparable location with magnificent views of the lake and mountains by day, and the stars by night. There is gorgeous modern lodge architecture, comfortable beds, scrupulously clean contemporary bathrooms, fabulous food, etc. But the real magnificence takes place in the transformed bodies, minds and souls of its guests.
Mountain Trek makes an internal and external metamorphosis possible for participants, because it values people as individuals. The wellbeing of each guest is the uppermost priority for the hard-working staff--from the manager to the guides, from the fitness professionals to the talented staff of masseurs, from the chefs to the housekeeping staff. The goal is to help each guest change—starting out with a realistic assessment, and moving towards the very best each can achieve. Each participant in the program receives the individual attention, and the unconditional support and encouragement, which can make deep transformation possible.
Here is one small example of the atmosphere of kindness and attentiveness that guests experience: Mt Trek’s complete care includes guest laundry service with attention to specific guest instructions. Muddy hiking trousers, sweaty shirts, socks, workout clothes, even delicates, are washed daily and folded neatly. On what other vacation can a guest go home with a suitcase full of clean clothes, and a new body to wear them on?
As a fitness retreat, Mt. Trek represents the best of the best. The caring human professionals that are the real timber from which this resort is built deserve a far higher rating than 5 stars.
