If your ideal vacation is a place where you can take in the beauty of the mountains, dine on healthy, chef-prepared meals, make new friends and have so much fun while exercising that you don't even know you're working out, then call your travel agent and book your next vacation to the Biggest Loser Resort at Fitness Ridge.


Located in scenic Utah just about 90 minutes from Las Vegas, this healthy getaway is closely mirrored after The Biggest Loser reality series with its calorie-controlled meals, fitness-filled itinerary and supportive team of personal trainers, health-conscious chefs and helpful dietitians. The only things missing are the occasional cursing rants from Jillian and the omnipresent camera crew.

The Biggest Loser Resort offers week-long stays for adults and teenagers. Guests can stay in private or semi-private rooms or they can find accommodations in nearby Ivins or St. George. In addition to the state-of-the-art gyms, outdoor swimming pool and aerobic room, you can hit Zion National Park or hop in the car on your free day and head for the Grand Canyon.
