About Movara Fitness Resort

We are Cameron and Michelle Kelsch. We started Movara Fitness Resort in 2002 as The Body Shop Spa in a Hotel with a Gym next door. 

Cameron worked 3 other jobs until we could afford to take a pay check 2 years after opening. We had very little overhead as we worked 7 days a week, 365 days a year for several years. In 2007 we took on 4 investors to help finance our current 30,000 sq ft. Facility in St George Utah and rebranded as Fitness Ridge Resort.

In 2009 we licensed The Biggest Loser name and opened a second location in Malibu in 2010. In 2015 we cut ties with The Biggest Loser and Malibu and rebranded as Movara Fitness Resort. 

In 2018 we were able to pay off all of our investors. In 2019 our Family toured 35 of the 50 states in an RV over 4 months with our 6 children as F8MOVESUS LLC. In 2020 we launched our online Movara home program. In 2022 we toured the remaining 15 states in our sprinter van with 4 of our 6 kids. We completed 20, 800 sq ft. Villas in July of 2023. We will be offering Movara Meals delivery service beginning Oct of 2023. 

In 2023 we were thrilled to become Campa and Oma! Each of the Kelsch kids have grown up at the resort working and waiting for mom and dad to finish the next big project. Movara has been all consuming with many blessings and challenges for our family. We are grateful to have employed thousands of employees who have been instrumental in Movara’s success and have welcomed over 30,000 guests from all over the world to experience a life changing program. 

The success of Movara is bigger than the Kelsch Family and its employees. We are grateful for the many times of divine inspiration, and guidance. We believe Movara is a special place for guests to feel and be their best. We are grateful for the relationships and interactions of thousands of supportive, and wonderful guests and employees who have and continue to contribute to the magic of Movara.
