Whistler Fitness Vacations is a small, down-to-earth retreat with no more than 10 staff scheduled per day and while we do as much as we possibly can for our guests, we are also preparing you to continue this at home. Come prepared to work hard on your body transformation!
The company model is built similar to that of a professional athlete, where a team works together throughout the day with a common goal, then goes to their own private residence at the end of the day to cook their own meals. They can socialize with whomever they want – if they want – instead of going to a big dining hall each night like most weight loss retreats. Additionally, only provided food is permitted during your program. This ensures that everyone stays focused on their weight loss success, and has opportunity to maximize their potential.
