~ Active retreat celebrates Breast Cancer Awareness Month ~
with strategies for healthier living
St. George, UTAH, September 20, 2012 – With Breast Cancer Awareness Month around the corner, Red Mountain Resort, the premier active destination retreat in Southwestern Utah, is offering tips to improve women’s health. About one in eight U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetime, and according to the Mayo Clinic located in Rochester, MN, women can reduce their risk of breast cancer with a number of preventative measures. It starts with adopting a healthier lifestyle, and Red Mountain Resort is the perfect place to do just that.
“As part of the Red Mountain Resort Wellness team, I have had the opportunity to help many of our guests lose weight and jumpstart a healthier lifestyle,” says Kim Watters, Fitness Manager at Red Mountain Resort. “Because body fat produces estrogen in women, and therefore becomes a significant risk to the development of breast cancer, we know that getting enough physical activity and controlling weight is an important part of cancer prevention.”
Red Mountain Resort believes that working out should be fun and interesting and suggests trying a variety of fitness classes and outdoor activities. The resort encourages guests to try an activity that they haven’t ever experienced, such as Zumba® Drums Alive® or Aqua Asana. As a result, many guests find themselves leaving the resort with new found interests to bring back home. Additionally, Red Mountain offers several specialty retreat packages, such as the Weight Loss & Well-Being Retreat, which focuses on promoting the health benefits of weight loss and weight management. Guests can also participate in health testing, educational shopping and dining activities, fitness classes, private fitness sessions and emotional eating lectures and workshops.
“Whether our guests come for a couple days, a week or longer, our goal is to help those who struggle with weight to learn how to reduce body fat and manage that loss over time, leading to improved health and significant reduction in risks for many conditions, such as breast cancer,” says Watters.
Red Mountain Resort offers many additional programs and activities designed to help improve guests’ health, including:
Nutrition Assessment (80 minutes, $150; 25 minute follow-up, $60) – Red Mountain’s Wellness team will create a personal profile for guests to identify which foods and supplements are best. This includes a bio-impedance analysis (BIA) to assess cell health and function, water content of cells, toxicity and body composition. This is a great service to help guests identify and address underlying health issues and embrace a life-long dietary program and maximize athletic performance.
Cholesterol Profile (15 minutes, $35) – Guests can receive a complete blood cholesterol panel with glucose, cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL, LDL and total cholesterol/HDL ratio.
Personal Training Starter Kit (90 minutes, $79) – Visitors will receive a private training session along with a personalized exercise program, guaranteed for success, to continue training at home once their stay at Red Mountain comes to an end.
Detox Add-On ($450 per person)– A dramatically renewing experience, this add-on package is a companion to the Weight Loss & Well Being Retreat and works to free guests’ bodies from environmental toxins and inflammation from the inside out and the outside in. It includes:
- One Acupuncture treatment
- One 45-minute Lymphatic Drainage treatment
- Ultraclear Medical Food Supplement
- Daily Detox smoothies during Weight Loss & Well Being Retreat week
