How often have you said to yourself, “This summer I’m going to take better care of myself. I’m going to eat healthier, exercise, swim and get outside more!” But then the work piles up, weddings and other celebrations happen complete with beer and barbecues, the kids need your undivided attention, the weather doesn’t cooperate and before you know it, summer’s over and you’re feeling even worse than you did before it started.
Well, the good news is there’s still another season of outdoor activity ahead of us. And the even better news? At Mountain Trek we’re gearing up for Fall and our Preventative Health retreats!
The qualified instructors, guides and program facilitators at Mountain Trek know full well that our current urban lifestyles lead to all sorts of physical, mental and emotional stresses. Most of us have sedentary lifestyles that involve office jobs, daily commuting and forms of entertainment that all require us to sit on our butts…12 to 16 hours a day! No wonder we don’t feel vibrant, curious about life and engaged with it and the people around us!
This sedentarism inevitably leads to a hormonal imbalance where our bodies change from anabolic growth to metabolic decline. Our bodies literally decay. Not a pleasant thought, is it? This metabolic decline then creates chronic inflammation and a sluggish eliminatory system (which accumulates increased bio waste and toxin levels) that contributes to muscle and bone atrophy (osteoporosis), insulin resistance (precursor to type 2 diabetes), hypertension (blood pressure illnesses), thyroid imbalance (metabolic regulation issues), adrenal fatigue, insomnia, and the ensuing aches and pains from minimal body movement (domestication).
That’s a long list of ailments! But the good thing is, there are exciting, challenging and energizing preventative measures that can be taken.
Helping you to rekindle the desire to move your body (through our vitalizing daily hikes), lower stress, improve sleep, lengthen and strengthen muscles, and balance blood sugars, is all part of Mountain Trek’s Prevention Program to reboot metabolism and balance hormones.
Our program facilitators will be sharing current, cutting-edge, foundational information on how to prevent chronic physical, emotional and mental stresses (and keep them at bay) and reactivate your metabolism during their informative and inspiring lectures. And our experienced fitness and hiking guides will support and motivate you to meet your own personal health goals – all in one of the most beautiful natural settings on Earth.
