Developed by Courtenay “Bush Man” Rooks, with over a quarter century of eco adventure tourism experience and a lifetime of adventuring and studying the natural history of Trinidad and Tobago as he dedicated his life to conservation, the Bush Man is perfect for this job. The Bush Mountain facility is the only fitness centre of its kind in Trinidad and Tobago, which offers a fully equipped gym, nature trail and aquatic centre in one location. Adjacent to the Cascadia Hotel and Conference Centre, it was conceptualised in keeping with the philosophy that interacting with nature – breathing fresh mountain air, immersing the senses in the lush environment – enhances one’s overall health and well being. We have therefore dedicated this property to creating a space which is accessible to the public for leisure, fitness and educational activities, as we strive to encourage others to live more healthy, balanced and natural lifestyles.
We have worked with trained professionals to create safe, durable trails for beginners and advanced athletes, and to develop exercise programmes for maximum engagement and benefit. At Bush Mountain you can explore the outdoors while walking to our yoga platform, or challenge yourselves with our various trail workouts. We offer a wide range of indoor training sessions to suit any interest and conditioning level. All of our programmes are facilitated by qualified fitness professionals. Immerse yourself in nature a heartbeat away from the city…welcome to Bush Mountain. Your fitness and wellness sanctuary is nestled in the Mountains of St. Anns. One mountain, two paths, for rejuvenating your optimal mind, body and spirit through interactions with nature. Adventure starts here!
