Prior to booking your retreat, their registration team sends out a questionnaire to confirm your travel information, (so they can supply a free airport pick up and return at any time of day or night), interests while at the property and choice of one of the two living accommodations. Guests can choose to live in one of the villas (about a five-minute walk to the main building) that has a bedroom, living room and kitchen or the Sweetgrass Inn, which opened in 2021 with 30 guest rooms and sits overlooking the pool. And upon arrival, you will meet with a counselor to discuss your goals for your trip and have them tailor a bespoke journey filled with exercise classes (of varying levels), lectures, spa treatments and numerous on-site activities.

Each day there are classes (from simple stretching, Pilates, pickleball, boxing, yoga, cardio, gait/foot assessment, aquatic classes and TRX workouts just to name a few) beginning at 8:30am and end about 7:30pm. Private services, at an additional cost, are available from the fitness instructors, body and mind services, counseling services, nutrition, culinary and wellness coaching. The coaches and trainers provide advice for individual refinements to the participants’ techniques to ensure they are getting the most that can out of the stretch or movement while preventing injury. Their team also works to personalize each meal for each guest, taking into consideration any dietary restrictions as well as working together with each guest to clarify their weight loss goals.

They stress that it is important to set goals that are attainable, not what you think you should be doing. Structure gives direction but flexibility allows you not to be locked in which proves to be more successful. Identification of what one is doing well in life and attaching that method to a healthier lifestyle. These are just a few of the nonjudgmental themes the participants are constantly reminded on their road to success. The uniqueness of this environment is the constant encouragement of the entire staff. The administrative staff make a point of greeting you upon arrival into the building, the dining room staff greets you by name and remembers things that you like with your meal, the psychological staff provide classes and personal sessions or are happy to just stop and chat and the trainers encourage you whether you are in top condition or just beginning on your health and wellness program.

This environment is unique and a place where all can find some component of wellness (walking, food, stretching, cardio, Tai Chi, etc.) that will enhance their life for the better and provide tools to sustain these health and wellness improvements in your everyday life.
