Movara Founders & Origins

In 2002, Cameron and Michelle Kelsch combined their passion for fitness and aspiration to help others find happiness through healthy eating and exercise and launched a small company in St. George, Utah. Little did they know that they planted a seed that would soon grow and blossom into a life-changing organization for thousands. Their business boomed, and so in 2007, they began construction of a more secluded resort in Ivins, Utah with all of the perfect fitness resort amenities they needed to not only be a successful company, but to enable their guests to succeed as well. The resort has helped over 30,000 guests thus far and continues to do so through motivating and encouraging people to make positive changes to their bodies and lives through health, exercise and total body wellness.
