If you've ever wanted to remove yourself completely from the proximity of your well-stocked refrigerator — and your life — a luxury fitness boot camp might be the answer.

The terms "luxury" and "boot camp" are seldom uttered in the same sentence, but that's exactly what you can expect at Mountain Trek, 45 minutes from Nelson, British Columbia. For the past 23 years, Mountain Trek has hosted men and women from around the world at their 35-acre holistic, educational health spa.

Choose from the May to October One-Week Reboot Program ($4,500, all-inclusive) or the Two-Week Renewal ($8,550, all-inclusive) to kick your metabolism into high gear, reduce stress, detoxify your body and mind and shed pounds. Ladies can expect to lose from 3.5 to 6.5 pounds; guys can drop eight to 10. The longer Renewal program promises to recalibrate your hormones and sleep timetable, as well as solidify healthy eating habits.

You don't get all of these wondrous results by sitting on your duff. You — along with no more than 15 other guests — work for it, starting with a nutrient-packed breakfast, followed by gentle yoga and a guided, four-hour-mountain hike. In the afternoon, it's fitness and nutritional classes, another good-for-you meal, massages and the steam room. All activities are optional, but full participation gets maximum results. After all that exercise, you're bound to sleep like a hibernating bear.
