Fit Health into Life offers private lifestyle-change getaways in Boulder, Colorado. If you're fed up with diets that don't work, and ready to learn the most effective way to reach and sustain a happy, healthy body, our program is for you. Fit Health into Life will change the way you think about food and fitness. We don't believe in deprivation diets. We show you how to fit your favorite foods into a healthy food plan and how to make exercise fun. Give us three days, and we'll help you change your life!
Our three-day package is an intensive, personalized program. With a registered dietitian, you navigate restaurant menus and supermarket aisles, you learn to eat mindfully, and you create an individualized take-home food plan. Wearing a pedometer, you begin to track your daily steps. And, engaging in cardiovascular, flexibility, and strength training exercises, you improve your strength and endurance.
Our fitness philosophy is simple: we want you to "move more." We realize most people do not have an hour to spend at the gym each day. You can still incorporate more activity into your daily routine. How? Take the stairs instead of the elevator, park farther away from the store, stand up from your chair and do ten jumping jacks each hour, contract your abdominal muscles while you sit in front of the computer, throw a few punches (jab, hook, uppercut) at your reflection when you look in the mirror, listen to your favorite song and dance around the house, mop the floor, vacuum the carpet, mow the lawn, and choose non-sedentary social activities, like bowling or miniature golf. In addition to "moving more", we focus on flexibility and resistance training.
Our three-day getaway includes private daily guided hikes, private nutrition counseling, hands-on experiences with mindful eating, restaurant dining, meal planning, and supermarket shopping, deluxe accommodations, meals and snacks, a relaxing massage, airport transportation, and many little extras such as a backpack, water bottles, pedometer, moisture-wicking t-shirt, and baseball hat.
Fit Health into Life provides a unique, valuable experience. Hiking and eating with a registered dietitian, individuals enjoy an extraordinary level of service and personal attention as well as a science-based, gimmick-free nutrition and fitness program.
Fit Health into Life was founded by Devon Metz, M.S., R.D. Devon is a registered dietitian, hiking guide, and fitness instructor who specializes in weight loss and weight management. She earned a Master of Science degree in Clinical Nutrition from New York University and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from Emory University. A member of the American Dietetic Association, Devon holds a Certificate of Training in Adult Weight Management from the Commission on Dietetic Registration.
Prior to developing her own program in 2007, Devon spent six years working in the health spa industry. Throughout her years at New Life Hiking Spa in Vermont, Miraval Resort and Spa in Arizona, and Canyon Ranch in the Berkshires, Devon served as a dietitian, hiking guide, fitness instructor, and program coordinator. At the nation’s top destination spas, Devon watched countless people lose weight and feel great on spa cuisine without addressing the unhealthy habits that they inevitably fell back into upon their return home. As a result, she was inspired to create a program that focuses on real-world lifestyle changes. Her mission is to help people Fit Health into Life. Her three-day private, one-on-one program transforms the way people approach and experience food and fitness.
Originally from New York, Devon has a great appreciation for mountains, sunshine, and fresh air. In 2004, after stints in New England, the South, and the Southwest, Devon happened upon Boulder, Colorado, and she is still convinced it’s one of the best places to live and visit.
Devon practices what she preaches by eating healthfully and exercising daily. She spends her free time hiking, bicycling, rollerblading, traveling, managing her "To Do" lists, attending to details, navigating restaurant menus, and baking with apple sauce instead of butter.
