In a sign that the Total Wellness Retreat created as a program of the Heart of the Rockies Medical Center at Mt. Princeton Hot Springs, is gaining national attention, the program has been named to the “9 Adventurous Wellness Retreats” “Go list” by Outsideonline.com. The HRRMC Total Wellness Retreat is an all-inclusive, lifestyle-change program designed to spur a lifestyle change for better health.
“Wellness retreats are all about treating your body and mind right,” writes Megan Michelson in “The Go List” on Outside magazine’s online site. “You’ll exercise, eat well, enjoy plenty of fresh air, and disconnect from your devices…That’s why we rounded up some of the best adventure-oriented retreats across North America and beyond.”
The HRRMC Total Wellness Retreat spans five days and four nights. Led by medical providers and staff from Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center, the program is designed to encourage healthy lifestyles and help attendees chart a course that has them in charge of their own health.

Participants have access to the pools, spa services, mountain bike rentals and fitness classes.

Upcoming retreats are scheduled for March 31 – April 4 and Nov. 3 – 7.
