BITS & BYTES
The future of health and fitness is here.
HANDS-FREE Sick of scrolling through friends’ holiday photos on Insta during winter? Mountain Trek offers you a vacation from the cold (and the constant status updates). For two weeks each November (and again in February), the lodge moves its tech-free health and fitness program from its base in Nelson, B.C., to celebrity-fave retreat Rancho La Puerta in Baja, Mexico. Fear not, Snapchat addicts: While there are no TVs in rooms and no digital devices permitted in common areas, you can keep your phone in your room. Mountain Trek’s Vince Hempsall says you’ll be so busy with yoga, hikes, fitness classes and spa treatments that you might not even miss it. “People who bring their iPhones along generally use them just to take photographs.”
