Four- and Seven-Day Wellness Program amid New York's Catskills Mountains

The leaders of Birchcreek Retreat Weight Loss & Wellness Center – New York know that weight loss and good habits can be hard to start. In turn, they created four- and seven-night immersive programs where health and well-being are your focus, every day. It certainly doesn't hurt that guests exercise amid the countryside of the Catskill Mountains.

In the boot-camp program, you’ll have a varied itinerary; each day typically includes hikes, yoga, strength training, cardio activities, and healthy meals or juice blends. Then, after partaking in physical activities and eating energizing food all week long, boot campers return home a few pounds lighter and armed with the skills to keep in shape.

The boot-camp program is appropriate for anyone who is in reasonably good shape and is able to walk 10 minutes without breathing heavily. Five hours is set aside each day for exercise, and certified personal trainers lead the workouts. There's also a communal, noncompetitive atmosphere here; guests are encouraged, but not required, to participate in all activities. The daily routine may look something like this:

9 a.m. Wake-up power hike
10:30 a.m. Breakfast
11 a.m. Cardio-kickboxing class
12:15 p.m. Strength training
1:30 p.m. Lunch
2 p.m. Fitness Fusion movement class
4:30 p.m. Dynamic yoga class
5:45 p.m. Zumba class
6 p.m. Dinner

Choose your own diet: For meals, you can choose between an all-juice diet or the Clean Food meal plan. With the juice diet, you’ll enjoy healthy drinks such as carrot-ginger and pineapple-orange juice for breakfast, as well as some heartier dinner drink blends, such as Salsa in a Glass and Little Italy. The Clean Food plan also incorporates juices, but includes fruit at breakfast and vegetarian entrees at dinner that total up to about 1,000–1,200 calories per day.

Stay on an estate in the mountains: The retreat is located just 2.5 hours from midtown Manhattan in New York’s Catskill Mountains. The estate was built by a wealthy entrepreneur in 1896 and has only 10 guest rooms. Each private room has a view of the hills, streams, and stone walls. During your free time, you can head out to one of the private trails or socialize with fellow boot campers.

Enjoyed my time there with guests and staff. Upon exit, should provide an immediate three day grocery shopping list for those who wish to continue juicing. Especially if customer has to wait for juicer to arrive. Then they can purchase as per recipes provided.
