Guests who visit the Red Mountain Resort & Spa in Ivins, UT learn to make healthy choices daily as they select from the nutritious menus and buffets, workout on cardiovascular and weight-training equipment, swim in mountain view pools, attend water and aerobics classes, participate in Spinning classes, and relax in soothing whirlpools.
But for most, the true life change comes as guests put on their hiking shoes and venture up the trails through the Red Rock mountains and canyons. Among the vertical towers of rust-red sandstone, the pink weathered mounds of slick rock, and the scattered boulders of ancient black lava, guests discover that their health and well-being are not attached to the numbers they read on their scales every morning but to their ability to walk from one point to another, their desire to climb to the top of a ridge, their joy in running a distance they've never reached before.
