Be The Best You is more than a weight loss program. It’s an immersive wellness experience designed to teach you the physical, emotional, and mental tools to live your best life - starting with where you are right now.
Working closely with our team of wellness professionals, this 8-day / 7-night group wellness retreat integrates all the components of a healthy lifestyle - nutrition, cooking, physical activity, rest and relaxation.
The natural beauty of the Okanagan and the luxurious atmosphere of our spa resort provide the perfect setting to focus on learning the concepts, developing the skills, and practicing the habits and routines of a healthier lifestyle.
Your health won’t correct itself. There is no better time to get started than right now.
Take the guesswork out of finding separate exercise, nutrition and mindset solutions with our
integrative, all-inclusive wellness retreat customized to your unique challenges and needs.
With your very own guest room, you’ll have the perfect spot for solitary reflection on what you’ve learned about yourself and your health throughout the week. From the custom wellness beds to the crystal-shaped soaker tubs, the views from the floor-to-ceiling windows will inspire the feeling of being reconnected to the natural world.
Don’t think twice about the results you’re achieving through the program. Our pre- and post-program assessments will measure your full wellness profile from waist circumference to blood sugar and blood lipids to cognitive functioning.
Nutritious and delicious low carb and sugar meal plan with no caloric restrictions. Our science-based food program focuses on healthy weight loss, but is also beneficial for Type II diabetes, blood pressure reduction, lipid reduction, longevity, and prevention against Alzheimer’s disease and certain cancers.
Physician-led workshops with our wellness lead, Dr. Pieter Strauss, help you understand the physical and emotional reactions you have to food and exercise, and teach you the skills to stay in control of your habits once you’ve finished the program.
Learn to prepare healthy and nutritious meals that incorporate the best practices you’ve learned in the education component of the program. Our Executive Chef will provide you with the culinary education you need to continue with the eating program once you return home.
A favourite of our Be the Best You participants, you will start your day by getting out into nature with a guided hike (or winter wonderland walk) on our local hiking trails. Geared to all fitness abilities, start your morning in the fresh Okanagan air and get a natural boost of energy to keep you going through the day.
Whether you run marathons or run out of breath climbing the stairs, work through a range of physical activities with our experienced fitness instructors. Learn to enjoy exercise by starting at your current ability level and taking into consideration any past injuries or ailments that may be impeding you in your daily life.
The Wellness Clinic at KurSpa is the only location in North America to offer the three chamber approach to Cryo treatments and uses oil not liquid nitrogen. The effect of this whole-body treatment is systemic, whereby during and after the cold treatment, the nervous and circulatory systems are given a boost for an overall better wellbeing and will be important for your recovery during the program.
An important part of a healthy lifestyle is making time for rest, and an important part of Be The Best You is learning to take care of your body and mind. Our spa treatments will be selected for you to help your body in recovering from the program activities.
Enjoy early access to the pools and Kneipp waterway to get a jump on your day. Complete each evening by detoxifying and relaxing in our 7 unique steam rooms and saunas in our KurSpa.
