At the heart of the program are behavioral classes that help women explore and address the thoughts and attitudes that shape their relationships to food, their bodies, and themselves. An array of exercise classes accommodates all levels of fitness and mobility. The nutrition program, a 2013 Spafinder Wellness 365 Readers’ Choice Award winner, helps women relearn and practice normal eating behaviors with an emphasis on intuitive eating.
The staff is led by behavioral therapists, registered dietitians, exercise physiologists, and mindfulness/stress-reduction experts in an intimate community.
Nestled in Vermont's Green Mountains, the serene retreat near Okemo Mountain Resort offers awe-inspiring views and miles of walking trails.

SERVICES & CLASSES
Green Mountain, a former ski and corporate destination at the base of Okemo Mountain, sits on 26 wooded acres and offers breathtaking views and fresh air. The atmosphere is decidedly casual; comfortable active wear and sneakers are the norm. Homey decor is inspired by a mountain retreat, accented by cozy common areas with fireplaces. Limited services at the three-treatment-room spa include massage and reiki.
The Vermont-based, organic Flourish product line is used in treatments.

Facilities & Amenities
More than a spa or a place for pampering, Green Mountain at Fox Run offers a comprehensive weight-loss program benefiting from four decades of experience understanding and working with women's specific weight-loss and health needs. The retreat's program features workshops in which modern research on fitness, behavioral, metabolism, and nutritional components is introduced and skilled professionals in the fields of nutrition, exercise physiology, psychology, and stress management guide guests; sleep classes, cooking lessons, wellness coaching, and metabolic assessments are among the options available. During their time at Green Mountain, participants begin to identify their personal obstacles to long-term weight-loss success, plus, develop and practice new behaviors, strategies, and techniques designed to extend beyond their time at Green Mountain.
Two on-site exercise studios host a bevy of workout classes that aim to accommodate all levels of mobility and fitness. Personal training is also available, and guests are welcome to trek the 10 miles of walking trails that wind throughout the property’s 26 wooded acres.

Rooms & Dining
There are never more than 40 to 45 women at Green Mountain at Fox Run, assuring a friendly, laidback feel. Lodging types vary from single rooms to triple rooms with sleeping lofts. All accommodations have private bathrooms; daily housekeeping and WiFi Internet services are also available to visitors.
Green Mountain prides itself on not depriving guests—three healthy meals and snacks are offered throughout the day as part of the lifestyle-change experience needed for long-term success. Nutritious, whole, and balanced spa cuisine is enjoyed in moderation within a structured meal plan that emphasizes locally sourced food products like Vermont grass-fed poultry, grass-fed beef, and organic produce. As well, education in the areas of nutrition, eating behavior, and stress management is key: Workshops may include “Becoming a Skillful Eater,” “Redefining Healthy Eating,” and “Healing with Food.”
