Resorts West Introduces Guest Fitness Program with Year-Round Personal Trainer

Vacation package includes personal trainer with ongoing support, even after guests return home

Park City, UT, March 14, 2012 --( Mountain vacation home provider Resorts West has introduced a fitness vacation package that combines alpine recreation, personal training, customized nutrition advice and ongoing support with a certified personal trainer. The Mountain Fit Getaway is customized for individual fitness goals and designed to give guests a consistent plan that they can follow on their own.

“The program is completely customizable,” says program director Jason Black, a personal trainer certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine. Black joined Resorts West after 20 years of industry experience February as a resource to employees and guests. “Whether it’s training for a race or starting a weight loss program, our hope is that guests of Resorts West will find inspiration from Park City’s mountains that they can incorporate into their everyday lives.”

The Mountain Fit Getaway begins with a professional fitness assessment using the online dotFit program, which includes the ExerSpy arm band, a device that continually monitors caloric intake, even during sleep. Throughout the four-day program, guests receive professional nutritional advice and two personal training sessions a day, including one at the state-of-the-art Park City Municipal and Recreation Center, an official training site of the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association. Depending on the season, the second daily session might include skiing, hiking, biking or yoga. Guests can also choose to have their gourmet kitchen stocked with healthy, organic foods upon arrival.

For up to six months after completing Mountain Fit, Black will remain available for workout advice and consultation. Black encourages guests to return after six months for another in-person session.

“We’d love for guests to think of Park City as their fitness home away from home,” Black said.

Park City’s altitude and year-round recreation have long made the mountain destination a favorite training ground for professional athletes, including skiers, cyclists and Olympic distance runners and other elite athletes, including the U.S. national soccer team, who trained in Park City before the 2010 World Cup.

Resorts West offers spacious accommodations ideal for relaxing while starting a rigorous fitness routine. Each lodge condo or alpine home features a private or common area hot tub, gourmet kitchen, plush bedding and stunning mountain views. Many properties offer private fitness facilities, saunas and steam rooms.

The Mountain Fit package starts at $2,500 and includes four nights’ lodging at a 2-bedroom Resorts West condo, 10 sessions of customized personal training, recreational activities, an ExerSpy fitness band, access to the online dotFit program for six months, and fitness consultation for six months. Taxes and fees not included. Concierge service, including grocery stocking, is included but the price of food is separate. Starting-at price reflects summer rates. Rates may vary based on property size and time of year. Package is based on availability, and restrictions may apply. Guests can call 1-877-773-1117 or e-mail for more information.
