This crammed itinerary makes us a wonder. We're all for healthy living, but this sounds like an upscale fat camp. There's a two-day Weight Loss Kick Start package for $1,400 that seems more doable. It includes a lab analysis; an alternative medicine treatment; a series of fitness assessments; consultations with a registered dietitian, an exercise specialist and a lifestyle consultant; fitness classes; and a Wellness Kitchen session.
Both options are available through March 31 and require three-day advanced booking. Obviously, if you do either, staying at the Four Seasons would be the most convenient. Those purchasing weight-loss packages can get a rate of $150 per night, and of course the hotel mentions that the stay includes 24-hour complimentary access to the fitness center, indoor and outdoor pools, and daily classes such as yoga and Pilates.
But after the bootcamp-like onslaught, skip those and head to the spa to unwind with a massage and to hide from the nutrition, exercise and "lifestyle" consultants.
