With the over-indulgent holiday season and New Year’s festivities in our rear view mirrors, many of us are struggling to maintain – or totally given up on – our resolutions to get healthy and lose weight. To help you revive your health and wellness goals in 2012, Spa Week has joined forces with nationally acclaimed nutrition expert, author and Golden Door Spa Nutrition Advisor, (and Spa Week’s very own Food and Wellness ExpertDr. Wendy Bazilian, to resuscitate one lucky winner’s wavering weight-loss resolution by entering the Nutrition 911 Giveaway. The prize package includes two parts to help you achieve optimal health and well-being…

Part One: A Rescue Retreat to the Golden Door Spa

From February 1st to March 11th, you can enter for a chance to win a four-night getaway for two at the prestigious Golden Door Spa in Escondido, California. The winner and a guest will enjoy a four-night stay in private accommodations with three private in-room massages, one herbal wrap, two skincare appointments, a choice of a manicure or pedicure. Also included is a customized Golden Door fitness program with a personal fitness counselor and gourmet spa cuisine, including three meals and two snacks a day.

Golden Door was the first-ever fitness spa (click for vintage photos!) created for devotion to the balance of body, mind and spirit and is home to one of the most inspiring, innovative and high-energy fitness and weight loss programs in the spa world today. It has a rich history that started in 1959, when Deborah Szekely realized her dream of creating a transformational Zen-influenced spa, serving a small number of guests with a 4:1 guest-employee ratio. Each guest has the option of participating in daily fitness activities, hikes, massages, meditation, spa treatments and stretching created especially for their health, fitness and weight loss needs.

Part Two: At-Home Revival with Dr. Wendy Bazilian and Spa Week

After a refreshing, restoring and luxurious trip to Golden Door, Dr. Wendy and Spa Week are giving one lucky winner a prize package to continue their healthy weight-loss journey at home. The prize package includes a copy of Dr. Wendy’s bestselling book, The SuperFoodsRx Diet: Lose Weight with the Power of SuperNutrients, a personalized nutritional counseling program designed by Dr. Wendy specifically for the winner and $100 in Spa & Wellness Gift Cards by Spa Week to relax body and mind at his/her choice of over 5,000 spas nationwide.
