At Peak, you’ll spend very little time in the gym because you’ll be learning new ways to make fitness fun outside! You’ll push yourself in outdoor group fitness classes, try new challenges, get personalized training while climbing up a mountain, and experience the beauty of Colorado Rocky Mountains daily. We incorporate adventure into every day and make education exciting and hands-on. You’ll learn about the food you are eating while dining in 4 and 5 star restaurants, and explore how to cook that way at home. Whenever possible, you’ll be immersed into the rich culture in Vail in the evenings to enjoy concerts, art festivals and other cultural events.
With Vail Mountain as the backdrop and the average high temperature hovering around 75 degrees, getting healthier will feel like a vacation. During your stay you’ll get outside every day for an active adventure. We can push your training to the next level with outdoor mountain cardio drills, trail running clinics, interval hiking, uphill mountain biking, or a sunset mountain run. Perhaps you’ll find a new passion by trying downhill mountain biking, endurance hiking, road biking, fly fishing, white water rafting, or horseback riding. Improve your golf or tennis game with world class pros or simply escape for a nature walk in the serenity of the Rocky Mountains. Our goal is to introduce you to lifestyle sports that help make being active and fit fun. In Vail, we live our passion and our goal at Peak Wellness is to help you find and live yours. You will not leave without feeling healthier, refreshed, rejuvenated, aware, and accomplished.
