About Estes Park

A little about what we do

Estes Park Medical Center will develop personalized retreats and programs at a state-of-the-art Wellness Center. To become the catalyst for achieving lasting lifestyle changes, the Center will address the seven dimensions of health: emotional, environmental, intellectual, occupational, physical, social and spiritual. With a diverse core team consisting of a physician, nutritionist, fitness trainer, and transformational coach, this holistic approach will maximize what can be accomplished during guest stays and provide tools for long-term success.

The science-based wellness strategies and assessment techniques were developed with our strategic partners, including the University of Colorado. In addition to improving physical fitness, metabolic function, nutrition, sleep, stress management and quality of life/life satisfaction, guests will enjoy spa services, outdoor adventures and complementary/integrative therapies designed to enhance overall health and well-being.

Lodging accommodations, food and beverage, and resort amenities will be integrated into the program through the adjacent boutique hotel from Grand Heritage Hotel Group, owner and operator of The Stanley Hotel. Famous for its old world charm, The Stanley boasts spectacular views of the Rockies in every direction and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Wellness Wednesday Tip: Find a Buddy For Training

Motivation is a huge part of maintaining a consistent and effective workout. Don't try to do it alone! Find a friend who has similar goals that would like to get and stay in shape with you. This person should be supportive and enjoy exercise. Try and find someone who will encourage you to keep going when you are tired. It also helps to have someone who is around your ability level. This way you both will stay challenged and will notice the gains that you make together. But most importantly, you need to have fun together!

Wellness Wednesday Tip: Plan Healthy Snacks

Plan ahead with healthy snacks - at your desk, in your car, or in your travel bag. Having whole food options within reach when hunger strikes will help ensure you don't make poor choices. Try packing a few handfuls of raw almonds. Almonds pack a decent dose of protein and do a great job of curbing hunger. Or try cutting up some veggies such as carrots, cauliflower, or broccoli. These kinds of vegetables have significant nutritional value and will stay fresh throughout the day. Another good option for food on the go is a protein shake. Carrying protein powder is easy, and you can always find water or milk to make your shake. It only takes a second and with the right protein powder, this can be an excellent meal replacement.
